Chill Tuesday

From Ireland '09

Today I was really lucky with my lastfm radio, and I kept getting amazingly chill songs. It was amazing! It also made for excellent background music for my school work. I got a lot done.

I just wish I could find a tree like this and write my research paper in its shade, while listening to this music of course.

Here’s the playlist I came up with.

I also really liked these songs, but I couldn’t find them on on playlist:

The Pledge- Brendan Benson
Riverside- Ollabelle
Almost Persuaded- Etta James
Everybody’s Talking- Fred Neil
Sally- Johnny Flynn
Music to My Ears- Ron Sexsmith

The Emerald Isle

Just got back from the most beautiful country in the world: Ireland. Every inch of it was just beautiful! We got really lucky with the weather: sunny, warm. Only a few days were rainy or overcast. which is Ireland’s most common weather patterns.

I saw no leprechauns, or rainbows. Great trip anyway.

Here are some pictures. By some, I mean a lot. Sorry.
