Chicago-based artist Bruce Riley paints abstract forms made from layers and layers of dripped paint and poured resin. There is no planned layout. It’s all about movement and what feels right. The end result is as organic and flowing as the making process itself.

Wow, how cool is this?! I love watching his process, totally absorbing, mesmerizing, and therapeutic(lol!).

My favorite part is when he screams, “locked and loaded” ~sigh~

*2006, Carnavas

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life
But it’s not quite right

And this ‘real’
It’s impossible, if possible, at whose blind word
So clear but so unheard

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this silence all night long
It’s just a matter of time

To appear sad
With the same old decent lazy eye fixed to rest on you
Aim free but so untrue

Everyone’s so intimately rearranged
Everyone’s so focused clearly with such shine

Everyone’s so intimately prearranged
Everyone’s so focused clearly with such shine

Locked and loaded
Still the same old decent lazy eyes fixed through your gaze
That’s why I said I relate
I said we really need to fight to relate

It’s the room, the sun, and the sky
The room, the sun, and the sky

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this moment

 

Seasons (Waiting On You)//Future Islands

Seasons (Waiting On You)//Future Islands

I luv Future Islands and I’m obsessed with this jazzy funky remix of their song, Seasons (Waiting On You) by BADBADNOTGOOD. I’m not one that’s too keen on remixes but this one is pretty amazing.

aaand who can forget the original. Their performance on Letterman is classic. I swear, every time I hear this song I just want to dance like him. Have you tried? It’s a friggn’ workout!

*2014, Singles

Seasons change
And I’ve tried hard just to soften you
Seasons change
But I’ve grown tired trying to change for you

Cuz I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been waiting on you
Cuz I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been weighing on you

As it breaks, the summer will wake
But the winter will wash what is left, of the taste
As it breaks, the summer will warm
But the winter will crave what has gone
Will crave what has all
Gone away

People change
But you know some people never do
You know–when people change
They gain a peace, but they lose one too

Cuz I’ve been hanging on you
I’ve been weighing on you
Cuz I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been hanging on you

(Chorus)

I’ve been waiting on you… 

 

Totally hooked.

Totally hooked.

Thanks to A Cup of Jo, I am now addicted to listening to the true-crime podcast on Serial. If you like watching or reading crime novels like I do YOU WILL LIKE THIS.

It’s Baltimore, 1999. Hae Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, disappears after school one day. Six weeks later detectives arrest her classmate and ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for her murder. He says he’s innocent – though he can’t exactly remember what he was doing on that January afternoon. But someone can. A classmate at Woodlawn High School says she knows where Adnan was. The trouble is, she’s nowhere to be found.

This is a true story. What are your thoughts? Do you think Adnan is innocent or guilty? I keep teeter-tottering. All I know is this case is bizarre.
