I was dreaming when I wrote this, so excuse me if I go to fast.
I WENT FROM BEING BROKE TO SLEEPING IN VERSACE SHIRTS R. KELLY
Just what I knew you all wanted to know - my changing and random musical tastes in a four part series!!! So take a look, judge, approve, whatever yall do. Listed as the artist and then the individual songs or the full album with a few random thoughts scattered in.
In retrospect this year looks like a hodgepodge of random songs, which it really is, but I remember being OBSESSED with Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Portugal. The Man and Wu Tang to some extent.
And it goes without saying that you should check out anything you haven’t heard before.

I was wearing shorts - but to be more specific they were jorts/cut off jean shorts / whatever you want to call them (dreams imitate life). And I noticed that there was a hole in the seat of the shorts, and when I tried to figure out if I could fix them, the hole kept getting bigger and bigger until I knew I had to get rid of them.
This is obviously an issue for me / commenting on my desperately missing st. mary’s / a problem that I dream about shorts. Yet the dream felt very appropriate, which was nice in a way.
but fuck khaki shorts, they suck.
