We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls. We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible. Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for God’s sake.

And you know why we were told that? Because the people doing the telling were afraid of our wildness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.

Tristan Prettyman covers “Wonderwall” and I love it. 

It’s so great to see TP back on tour, releasing new material and making awesome music. Plus, her voice sounds better than ever! There are two other videos - an acoustic version of “My Oh My” and a Q&A - on Billboard’s page.

"He was unheeded, happy, and near to the wild heart of life. He was alone and young and wilful and wildhearted, alone amid a waste of wild air and brackish waters and the seaharvest of shells and tangle and veiled grey sunlight."
― Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild

Daryl Hall & Butch Walker - Why Was It So Easy

I can’t believe how beautiful this duet is. I love both Daryl and Butch, and I know they’re amazing artists, though I could have never imagine that the two together would be so fantastic. I’m in love.

So Josh Homme shows up in a satirical infomercial to promote the new Scissor Sisters album, Magic Hour. This is so awesomely awkward.
