Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 10 “I Don’t Love Anyone”

This Belle and Sebastian song has been around awhile but I only recently heard it on the GIRLS soundtrack (which is AMAZEBALLS) and it's been haunting me in a good way ever since. In addition to this being perfect for the playlist, it's also quite handy to sing to yourself in line at the post … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 10 “I Don’t Love Anyone”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 9 “Comeback Story”

I think if there were a song that could describe me best in this moment in time, it would be The Kings of Leon song "Comeback Story." It really captures the raw emotional journey of my writing process.   Picking up the pieces of the world I know With one in the fire and one … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 9 “Comeback Story”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 8 “Bitter Rivals”

I'm pretty certain that this time around, NaNoWriMo is my arch nemesis, my bitter rival because she is kicking my ass to the curb. I'm locking myself in my writing cave this weekend and ignoring my massive pre-Thanksgiving to-do list and spreadsheet in the vain hope that I will catch up to the word count. … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 8 “Bitter Rivals”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 7 “Lady Luck”

Ever since I heard Pickwick covering this Richard Swift song at a Neko Case concert I haven't been able to get it out of my head. I feel like I need to spend some time with Lady Luck right now.   Lady luck, she is lovely Lady luck, she is free But I wish sometimes … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 7 “Lady Luck”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 6 “You Never Know”

I love Wilco but seem to have gotten out of the habit of listening to them as of late. I heard this song them other day, and it reminded me how good they are.

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 5 “Hardcore Days & Softcore Nights”

I fist discovered Aqueduct on the O.C. (sidenote: that show had the best music). ¬†If my life were a movie and I was in a fight (slow-motion, obviously) this is the song I'd have in the background as I gave a roundhouse kick to some jerk's jugular. I get the red out When I take … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 5 “Hardcore Days & Softcore Nights”

Rejection Playlist, Volume 3, Track 5 “The View”

Not that I'm feeling rejected lately (cue the Universe to hand me bad news in ten ten minutes) but some days you still need a pick-me-up even though nothing's wrong except for the fact that it's a Saturday and you're at work, or the Sun has disappeared for the next nine months. Today's track on … Continue reading Rejection Playlist, Volume 3, Track 5 “The View”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 4 “Ambulance”

I've been listening to a lot of Eisley's "Ambulance while writing Secret Heart. It ties into the rejection theme nicely. I need an ambulance I took, I took the worst of the blow Send me a redeemer Let me know if I'm gonna be alright Am I gonna be alright? 'Cause I know how it … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 4 “Ambulance”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 3: “Strange Days”

I've been listening¬†to a lot of We Are Augustines lately. Their songs fit seamlessly into the scenes I'm writing for Valentine and the music blends nicely for the rainy weather that has settled back over for Seattle (time to break out the Bourbon and start a fire in the fireplace and throw some beef stew … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 3: “Strange Days”

Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 2: “Bad Day”

I've had my fair share of bad days recently. As much as they suck, the really good days wouldn't feel that way if I hadn't just experience a shitstorm of sadness. Daniel Powter's "Bad Day" is a perfect song to play during said shitstorms. Cause you had a bad day You're taking one down You … Continue reading Rejection Playlist Volume 3, Track 2: “Bad Day”
