James Blake - “Limit To Your Love”
Dawn Richard - “Pretty Wicked Things”
So oddly alluring that I can’t help but be intrigued.
Side note: I have no objections to an Aubrey / Dawn project…

That moment where something about your life suddenly makes complete sense; it’s like your own personal little epiphany - a weight lifted off your back, and your vision’s a shade clearer. That moment where it’s finally worth it, and it just feels so damn good to be that much smarter.
It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more ‘manhood’ to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in the muscles and an immature mind.
Dante - “Won’t Go” (feat. Adele)
If this ain’t love, then what is?

Lana Del Rey - Video Games (Liam Walds Remix)
Eerily anthemic. Dolefully stimulating.
Frankly, this week’s ending soundtrack.

He can love you good, but I can f*ck u betta.
you only live once: that’s the motto
Just when I get everything unpacked, I’m filling my suitcase all over again. Worth every fold though… off to VEGAS!
This year I loved harder, hurt graver, dug deeper, strove greater, and thrived richer - I opened my heart, my mind; I shed a layer of protection against my insecurities. In that vulnerability, the music, the lyrics and the artists of these past 12 months touched me closer than ever before.
I’ve learned to emphasize the value of the process, in the moment and in retrospect. It’s this paradigm shift that has given me perspective enough to appreciate the journey, to not fear what’s ahead on the winding road, to lose apprehension of opening the next door. And the people who surround me are endlessly inspiring - I couldn’t be more grateful of their acceptance and for sharing their lives with me in return. Thank you all.
As I sit here reminiscing about the past year from a new stage in life where I couldn’t be happier or more proud, this means everything.
2k12, let’s do this.
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.
