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.
