This week you can download “Pick Up the Phone” by Dragonette for free from iTunes. I quite enjoy this song and I’m realizing that I have a new band to like. Yes!

$5 albums in June

Sorry I’m a little late on posting this – it’s June! Who knew?

Amazon offers 100 $5 mp3 albums every month, and this month is by far the best selection I’ve seen. There’s John Mayer’s Continuum (yes, he’s a douche now, but Continuum is his best album and I recommend it), Kings of Leon, Silversun Pickups, Rihanna, Arcade Fire, Corinne Bailey Rae, the Once soundtrack, Radiohead, Dixie Chicks, Coldplay, Spoon, Jeff Buckley, Damien Jurado, Gossip, Beach House, Nada Surf, Shout Out Louds, and more!

Spring… summer … it’s all the same here

Barsuk Records Amazon Spring 2010 Sampler featuring Pearly Gate Music, Rocky Votolato, David Bazan, Viva Voce, and more. That’s a pretty good group, though I expect nothing less from Seattle’s own Barsuk.

This is how I feel about what I just made:


Intrigued? Check it: Frozen Peanut-Butter-Chocolate-Chip Milkshakes

Peanut butter milkshakes are my favorite, so I was very excited to try this somewhat healthier version. And I have to say it’s pretty darn good. It’s not the same as a regular milkshake, but it’s a lot closer than I expected it would be. I definitely recommend giving it a go, and I definitely plan on making it again. I’m not a huge chocolate chip fan, so next time I’ll probably use chocolate syrup. Actually, now that I think about it, Nutella would be amazing. But Nutella is amazing on everything – which is why I have banned it from my apartment.

The recipe also gave me a chance to use my food processor for the first time. The food processor I got for Christmas. Yes, six months ago – that food processor. The one I was dyyyyyyyying to get and was so excited about that I let it collect dust for half a year. There’s a needs vs. wants lesson in there somewhere.

To recap:

Delicious “milk”shake? Check.

Food processor does in fact work? Check.

The recipe made two servings like it said it would? Check.

Pretended like it was one serving? Check.
