Hello everyone, I am The Milk.
I’m so excited to be joining my super cool friends’ Jen and Kristi’s super cool blog hop. I will spend the rest of this post, pretending that I belong here.
Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. My favourite musical genre is Crap. I am crap curious and couldn’t care less about the year a song’s been written as long as it’s Crap, but my friend Jen tells me that we’re here to talk about the late 2000’s. Including 2013.
Ahhhh. 2013. In my books you will always be that mythological ex year. You know, the one that got away. Musically speaking, that is.
You see, this was me last August.
And this was me ever since.
A before and after if you will, just not in the traditional order.
So when it comes to music, local and international news and basically anything that didn’t happen in my house or can be seen through my living room window, count me out. I’m out of the loop. Not playing. Except for today, because say what you will about me, no one’s going to take away my inconsistency.
While I can’t think of a single song from 2013 except this one:
The late 2000’s are my personal most happening era and a lot of my memories come with a soundtrack which makes crap much more significant than one would think.
Of all the songs in all the albums in the world it had to be Rihanna’s Umbrella that evokes memories of my first months in Canada. A sense of hidden promise with sharp longing for the known.
Nostalgia for Israel.
Destressing on my way back from my first Canadian job.
Thinking contractions are such a breeze, on our way to the hospital with Braxton Hicks.
Experiencing some mat leave excitement*.
And then some more mat leave and writing and momming. Oh wait, here’s another fresh one from 2013 for you!
Sometimes crap is just crap. Sometimes it’s so much more.
* You know how your memory cheats sometimes? I was not on mat leave in 2011 when Stereo Hearts was released, yet this is how I remember it.
