Apoopalypse Playlist

Was anyone else as excited as I was about the prospect of the world conveniently coming to an end? I don’t know anything about prophesies, and I never actually bothered researching this or any other apocalypse theory, but whenever I hear that the world might end I can’t help but get caught up in the spirit of end of times. I don’t actually change my routine in any way, but a part of me becomes giddy in anticipation of the validation of my meaningless existence that would come from a meaningless end to everything, simultaneously, in what I hope would be at least a colorful display.

 

While I am not as adept at playlist making as Tricia — who I recall recounting a story of successfully turning in mix-CDs for at least one high school assignment — I do have a Spotify Premium account and a job that allows me the freedom to listen to “grave wave” as much as I like.  Therefore, to celebrate the idea of the end of everything we know as reality, I decided to attempt to make a playlist to listen to while feeling screwed by yet another unfruitful destruction prophesy. You can listen to it here:

 

The Apoopalypse Playlist

 

Since Tricia showed off her rightfully abandoned ukelele, I will additionally include a SNEAK PEEK of the future cover of my upcoming album of cat pop songs.

 

 

In truth, my cats play all the instruments and the vocals are just auto-tuned and rearranged conversations I surreptitiously record from strangers at Starbucks; HOWEVER, you can expect the album to be the best thing released in 2016.

Why Would You Do That – The Playlist

If you love Why Would You Do That? but wish that after three episodes, we were doing more to expand our anti-lifestyle brand, you’re in luck!

 

Introducing the Why Would You Do That? playlist – featuring songs about depression, self-pity, discomfort in social situations, and occasional ambition and/or overblown confidence. You can listen/subscribe on Spotify here. I will probably continue to add to it since I prefer doing that over other things.

 
Though I am staunchly opposed to the idea of having a career, I think I’d be ok with it if my career were Personal Brand DJ. I could spend all day creating playlists for people to help them project a marketable version of themselves to the world. Well, maybe not marketable, exactly, but I can definitely help you create an identity through the music you listen to in lieu of a strong sense of self!

Anyway, since this is a music-y post,  here is a picture of me NOT PLAYING my ukulele.  I used to play ukulele (briefly in a twee folk band, and I can’t even tell you how sorry I am for that, world), but then I found out that Jessica is offended by anyone playing ukulele, so I don’t do it anymore.  I just hold my ukulele with a “hey, how did this get here?” face.
