Sorry for the lack of TILT last week guys! I was getting ready for this art show I was participating in on Saturday and there was so much to do that I didn’t have time for the blog. Sad, I know. But we’re back this week! So heeeeere we go!!
1. My best friend Chaney (read her blog) just introduced me to this really cool music sharing website called Grooveshark.com. It’s a little like Pandora, but I think Grooveshark’s a lot easier to use. You can find just about any song you want, and play them in any order you like. Make playlists, shuffle random songs, and pretty much do anything your heart desires with the music you find. So check it out!
2. Ok, unless you’re a guy with super long hair this next one will be just for the ladies. I was perusing the wonderful world of Pinterest one day last week (greatest time wasting website ever) and came across this YouTube video of a Swedish girl demonstrating how to curl your hair with a sock. I know it sounds completely crazy, but if you have shoulder-length hair or longer you should totally try it! I attempted it with zero success because my hair isn’t long enough, but I’m dying for someone to try it. If you have long hair, try it and let me know if it works. I’m growing my hair out for the sole purpose of being able to do this to my hair every day, so I’d love a guinea pig. This girl has a ton of other hair tutorials that I’m slowly getting around to watching. She’s great, and so is her English!
Here’s the vid!
(I think the LOTR poster in the background is a nice touch)
3. The band Mumford & Sons is my new favorite folksy group. I first heard them when they performed on this year’s Grammy Awards, and they blew me away. I’m a sucker for a good musician, and these guys are great! White Blank Page just might be my favorite of theirs. It has such a powerful message. It’s one of those classic heartbreak songs all about the confusion and tragedy that is love lost. I’m guessing this is pretty much how everyone feels (because I know I have) when they experience the disappointment side of love, and this song just illustrates it beautifully. The Cave is also a great one. It’s one of the songs they played that night I first heard them at the Grammys. They’re incredible live performers. Just from watching their live videos you can tell that they’re all about the music. Like I said, I’m a sucker for a good musician. They’re my favorite. Especially that lead singer…oh mercy! Hah. But seriously, have a listen and tell me you don’t want to marry every last one of them!

4. My sister Melody (go check out her website) told me about Bloglovin.com a while ago and I’m just now discovering its greatness. It’s sort of like StumbleUpon for blogs. Find blogs on subjects you’re interested in, and then follow them like you would on twitter. It’s just what the blogosphere needed. If you’re into blogs like I am, this thing will be your best friend!
This blog is on there too, so follow me!
