Summer MixTape Week 10: Limit to Your Love

High Line Skyline

It’s beautiful outside, one of my best friends from Chicago is in town and it’s Friday. Even if I have no clue where I’m going to be living once September 1st comes up, I’m going to do myself a solid and enjoy this mothafuggin weekend. Cheers to all of you – I hope your weekends are filled with sunshine, love and sexy times.

Summer MixTape Week 10: Jerk Ribs

Note to self: Never wear a nightgown while playing “Light as a feather, stiff as a board” because you may end up twirling above your friends with no way of covering up.

Not only is Fol Chen’s song “The False Alarms” great – I really dig this video concept even if it is one of my worst nightmares.

This hot weather is making it hard to get out of bed but somehow I’ve managed to check a bunch of things off of my to-do list this week. I finally made my way to the DMV to get a New York driver’s license, which for some reason they aren’t able to give you on the spot like they do in Illinois – so I have no idea what my picture looks like and the only photo ID in my possession is the passport from the time I was at my heaviest and I have a shaved head. If I get carded I need to get my sidewinder ready.

I also signed the lease for my new apartment in Brooklyn, which I will be sharing with a woman who is also short and works in TV and a tall 25-year-old, very sweet, Italian who is here working for an architecture firm. I’m nervous, excited and sweating.

Enjoy your weekend folks – here is your weekly mixtape:
