Listener’s Block: Zero Effs Given

posted on Feb.24, 2014

Every now and then (all the time), I get this urge to just drop what I’m doing, put my hands up in the air, and just say, “Eff it all.” Who cares about schoolwork or career goals, when it gets in the way of your immediate happiness? Right now, every moment feels like Thursday night and the weekend is just around the corner in your mind. So stand up from your seat and either dramatically throw your papers in the air or recklessly flip a table over since who cares?! You don’t, and I certainly don’t. And if sheer need for your instant gratification isn’t enough reason, then give this playlist a whirl because you might as well sound like a badass while you’re at it.

Listener’s Block: Valentine’s Day

posted on Feb.10, 2014

Love is in the air, listeners! Now even if you’re like me and you don’t necessarily have that “special someone” to celebrate with, that doesn’t mean that you have to be excluded from the Hallmark festivities. Do yourself a favor and shamelessly order as much takeout as you want because every deliveryman will assume you will be ordering for two, or go out and buy all the glorious 50% off V-day chocolate at your local CVS on February 15th. This Spotify playlist is packed with some of my favorite love-related songs, including what I believe to be the better metaphorical wrecking ball song, “Bulldozer” by Cold War Kids. So grab your significant other, best friend, or Chinese food, and turn up the volume to this week’s installation of Listener’s Block. Dance, snuggle, laugh, drink, get sexy, what have you. Go all out. Today is your day, listeners.

Listener’s Block: Werk It

posted on Jan.27, 2014

Welcome back, listeners. Congrats on finishing your first week of classes. Whether you spent winter break working low-pay jobs, padding your résumés, or shamelessly bumming like a hobo, the start of a new semester always means a chance to start anew. If you, like most people (myself included), gave up on those so-called New Year’s resolutions not even a week into January, here’s a playlist to fluff your feathers and drag yourself out of your Netflix binge. Oh Land’s “White Nights” will not only get you to the gym and work out but also motivate you to run those extra ten minutes on the treadmill. And maybe, just maybe, “Medicate Or Stimulate” by Minutes Til Midnight will inspire you to care about that class you’re just taking to fulfill yet another liberal learning requirement. Go forth and give this Listener’s Block playlist a try; it’s okay if you feel like Beyoncé, even for just a second.

Listener’s Block: StuDYING

posted on Nov.25, 2013

What the heck? We’re in that final stretch of the semester already? But it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! Indeed, folks, sadly it’s time to buckle down again and live the rest of our days out in the library. And while we may feel like our brains will literally melt from the fact absorbing, paper writing, and problem solving never-ending list of things to do, this playlist here is built to get you in and stay in the zone. No longer are the days when you cry inside whilst writing nonsensical research papers or when you experience a near-Britney breakdown (circa 2007) as you cram for yet another exam. From now on, you approach deadlines with the effortless gusto and courage of Ned Stark. Packed with woozy instrumentals, mellow vocals, ambient synths, and foreign lyrics, this playlist will be on repeat as you fearlessly battle the war that is against a declining GPA. Godspeed, listeners.

Listener’s Block: Shower Sing-Alongs

posted on Nov.10, 2013

Happy Monday, folks. It’s that time of year again – when every day seems like “crunch time” for never-ending projects, presentations, and exams. Everywhere you go, it seems like every student on campus is either wearing sweats, power napping, or stress eating (or all the above. That’s cool. I don’t judge). As we near the end of the semester, the lack of personal hygiene becomes more and more socially acceptable. Of course, while our time may be limited, let us not forget to enjoy and cherish those few moments in which we can hop in the shower, belt our hearts out, and smell approachable again. Here’s a playlist to ensure you maximize the amazing feels you get while you’re under that shower head:
