"My Work Self is Suffocating My LIFE ME!"

Lately I've been feeling a lot like this Liz Lemon quote from last week's brilliant new episode of 30 Rock. Except, there's no comic relief and I don't get to meet Oprah. Not even a fake Oprah.

It's a Beautiful World

Tim Myers - A Beautiful World

"It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America."
-President-Elect Barack Obama

Just look at what we can do.

Yesterday certainly won't be the answer to all of our problems. We still have a ways to go, especially in light of today's news about several states' bans on gay marriage. But it's a step in the right direction. I'm still bewildered and in awe of last night's events. I wish I had more to say, but words fail me now. My heart is so full.

The Tim Myers tune may sound familiar, perhaps you've heard it in a serene and tranquil Target Commercial over the summer?
It's also from Myers's new steller The Good Life EP, available on iTunes.

Oh Darling

Portland's Oh Darling [pictured] may have the cutesy name and the cutesy dresses (seriously, CUTE!) but don't let the darling little details fool you. These cutey-pies came to rock.

Oh Darling - Waking Up On A Train

You can grab Oh Darling's new CD, Nice Nice, on iTunes and CD Baby.
