Pride Week: Sunday

by Ellie McHale

With Pride Week at an end (even though people are still out celebrating), I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to go up to San Francisco today. This was the first Pride I’ve missed in years, and with marriage equality the law now, I so wanted to be in the throng! This entire week, I wanted to celebrate! Next year, though.

To round out the week long series, I give you Ms. Dusty Springfield. You didn’t know she was bisexual? Well, now you do!

If I had any semblance of a decent singing voice, this would be my go to karaoke song. Always and forever, I love this song!!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Pride celebrations and plan to continue to celebrate love throughout the year and until the end of time. Remember, love conquers all, even if it doesn’t seem that way.

Peace out, y’all and have a wonderful week!

Pride Week: Saturday

by Ellie McHale

Another late post, y’all!!! I completely lost track of time. Seriously, I thought it was Sunday. I think I might have a bit of the premenstrual brain. While this post will go up on Sunday, please know that I started to write it on Saturday! I promise.

Here’s an amazing song, one that should be on every love song playlist:

Joan has gotten me through some tough moments, and I am so grateful for music.

Hope everyone is having an awesome Pride weekend, whether you are out reveling in the city, or are at home with loved ones.

Pride Week: Thursday

by Ellie McHale

Hey loves! Sorry to post so late! It’s been a long day, and I just remembered that I wanted to share a video.

I love REM, always have, always will. This is one of my favorite songs and it always lands on any Chillout playlist I create.

I wish I had gone out tonight to celebrate with everyone, but I was too tired. Tomorrow night might be promising though! Have fun, everyone, and please be safe! Go with love.

Pride Week: Wednesday

by Ellie McHale

Howdy! How’s your week going?

Here’s a little midweek pick me up. If you need a 25 minute break, enjoy Queen at LiveAid.

Enjoy the rest of you Wednesday. Remember, you are loved.

Pride Week: Tuesday

by Ellie McHale

Happy Tuesday! Hope you are all doing well.

Here’s a lil’ George Michael cover from one of my favorite singers, Reina Williams.

Go forth and love!

Pride Week: Monday

by Ellie McHale

Happy (San Francisco) Pride week!

Every day this week, I plan on sharing a song done by a LGBTQI+ person in celebration.

Today, I give you a favorite song by one of my favorite singers:

Brandi Carlile is such a fantastic musician and she never disappoints. This song makes me get misty eyed, yet smile every time I hear it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Delayed Reaction

by Ellie McHale

Ooops, it’s been just over two months since my last post. However, I believe I had a preemptive warning this might happen! School has been quite time consuming and I seem to spend a lot of my non-school time at work.

Right now, my body seems to be feeling a bit funny. I (among others) have come to the conclusion I might have a bad case of dermatitis only aggravated by too much forced heat at work. On top of that, I feel a little bit of a cold lingering. This means that my focus is out of sync. I’m trying to write modified case briefs for an assignment that is due next week, but I lose my train of thought every couple of sentences. Which is why I am here, writing this – an attempt to reign in what little focus I have and keep it within a fairly close radius.

So, let me share my ultimate musical obsession: The National’s “I Need My Girl” Enjoy!

The Lights Go Out In Your Building…

by Ellie McHale

A couple years ago, I happened to stumble across a nugget of musical joy. It was early afternoon on Saturday, day 2, of Coachella in 2011. I ventured into the fields to check out a band, getting to the stage early. There was this tall, lanky man with fantastic black hair dressed in all white. Watching him move and listening to his voice, I instantly fell in love. And, I’ve been in love ever since. That man is Francis Farewell Starlite of Francis and the Lights.

I can’t quite describe his sound. Prince comes to mind often, but they’re not exactly the same. There is a complicated simplicity to FatL. Yes, I used a cliched oxymoron, but that is the best way to describe this music.

Words can’t do Francis and the Lights justice. I shall leave you with a live set Francis did solo. This is my favorite thing to put on when I’m driving or cooking or with friends or want to relax. Please, enjoy.
