your thursday playlist

we’ve become obsessed with this performance by future islands (watch in hd!):

future islands – seasons (waiting on you) … see above.

bobby womack – whatever happened to the times … love this guy. an old soul staying true to his heart but also pushing forward in modern times. watch a beautiful live performance of this song here.

little dragon – klapp klapp … cool new one from them. their album “nabuma rubberband” comes out in may.

timber timbre – beat the drum slowly … streaming at npr. had never heard them before and it immediately grabbed me. i can tell i’m gonna be wrapped up in this one for a while.

chet atkins – windy and warm … it’s starting to get windy and warm here in fresno, this song is such a cool vibe and a great soundtrack to a warm windy sunset.

mac demarco – salad days … also streaming at npr, he’s a total goof, and writes good songs.

damon albarn – lonely press play (acoustic) … love how pretty and simple this acoustic version is. still anxiously awaiting his solo album.

beck – wave … cinematic and deep. the string arrangement makes you feel like you’re literally be swept away by a wave.

we’re always digging for new music. recommend something to us!

hi guys

if you don’t update your blog, you get a whole bunch of pictures that just pile up on your camera. which makes it even harder to update, since you don’t know where to start! #FWP

so, here are some photos from the last few days/weeks. mostly taken w my iphone 5s…actually, there is only one that was taken w/ a real camera…can ya tell which one?
anyway! hope you’re having a nice spring! we had a huge week of spring cleaning here… the kinda cleaning where you sweep the garage out and dump everything from your fridge. i feel lighter. definitely recommend a deep cleansing/de-cluttering!
ok. see ya guys later!

balentines bay

one of the best parts about living in fresno, is its proximity to everywhere else. (lol).
on valentines day, we actually had a lot of work to do, but decided to give into the holiday and do something fun.
we talked about camping, and staying somewhere overnight, but decided on a day trip to morro bay. we stopped in paso robles for lunch & some thrift shopping. made it to morro bay, just in time for the most beautiful sunset.
for dinner, since it was valentines, we decided to go to indian (since in our experience, you can get in w/o a reservation;) ), in san luis obispo.
so there you have it. our little day trip.

get lost

our friend, told us about a little swap meet near where we live. so we’ve been going every weekend now. it’s just fun to walk around, neva know whatcha gonna find. it’s like a flea market/garage sales/farmers market, last weekend we bought a few records, and a pound of guava. i made the best smoothie ever with the guava and listened to our “new” kris kristofferson & babs record. (unfortch, the record kinda sucks)

after the market we went to organic fresno, for some lunch. i was in luck! their special of the day was a vegan indian dish (dreams do come true guys. just remember, dream small. lol. jk.)
after lunch, we decided to take a stroll down the street. but i guess this isn’t really a street anyone wants to walk down all by themselves…
apparently while i stopped to change my camera setting, nate and alvaro looked back to see where i was and saw several cars slow down by me, to look me over(??) (thinking i’m a modern/vintage prostitute, maybe? or what? do those exist?). i mean… come on. really?

alvaro wanted to show me that cool mid century looking wall. but then we saw a cemetery and decided to go for a stroll… you know, like normal people.

it was a nice walk, actually. fun to look at names, but sad to see young graves, sad to see couple graves…actually entire families sometimes. we talked about how pretty the palm trees looked. it has rained for several days since these photos were taken, but we talked about how smoggy it looked that day. we also talked about how we wanted to be buried ourselves and where.
(i know… really happy conversations) but seriously, i wondered what if something happened to me, and nate would have to choose where to bury me…fresno? or would i go to spokane, where i grew up? maybe LA (since that is probably where i would want to be most…except who cares, since i’d be dead and it would probably be expensive)and what would my tombstone say “yelisabeta?” or “lisa” or “liska?!” *crying laughing face* ok. sorry about that guys. i guess this is where conversation goes when you get lost in a cemetery.
