We are becoming big fans of The Dollyrots. The crush started with a Blackheart Records digital mix tape and developed as we listened to their music and followed their adventures on Twitter. We missed them when they came to Pennsylvania last year, but last month, they had a StageIt concert, played half of their first album and it was a blast. So we already have our ticket to the next one on February 28th, which is love song themed. We're excited. And yes, this blog post is a blatant attempt to sway The Dollyrots (Hi Kelly, Hi Luis) to pick one of our favorite songs because not enough people are voting for the ones we like in the poll on The Dollyrots Facebook page. And yes, you, loyal reader, can go vote for any of them. We'll wait.
It's past Valentine's Day, but here are our favorite love songs, Dollyrots style. And our strategies for keeping the Febraury shivers away.
Ty thinks The Dollyrots are collectively psychic and "California Beach Boy" was written about him (cheesy would have been the word choice demonstrating restraint if this were true)
Ok, we're tired of the seasonal colds and the seasonal sneezing and the seasonal coughing...so we're going to put on those pointy hats, start focusing on Santa and boost our immune systems with chuckling and merriment, darn it, starting with our favorite songs that mention the jolly old soul. We may also slip in a hint or two about what might fit nicely under the tree -- if a certain rosy cheeked fellow should happen to read this. Also, we've been nice (mostly) but you already know that ; ).
And we wish the very warmest of holidays to you.
Ty mood: staying warm on a cold winter's night. gift: keep reading ; )
"Santa don’t bring me any toys, Just bring my baby and a bottle of joy. Maybe just a taste for Uncle Roy, We all know Santa is a good ole boy."
TK mood: doesn't like things that go bump in the night, even if said bumper is jolly + bearing gifts. Unless it's a pool table. Then bumpers encouraged.
"Are you bringing a present for me, Something pleasantly pleasant for me? Then it's just what I've been waiting for. Would you mind slipping it under the door? Cold winds are howling, or could that be growling?"
If you missed us, we plead: distracted by Australian Women's Soccer(we get points for originality, right?). Exciting things happening there, check it out. Good luck to the Matildas against Hong Kong tomorrow as they go for qualifying for EAFF Women’s East Asian Cup 2013. And best of luck also to Canberra United, currently in Japan for The International Women's Club Championship. Yes, we will soon be sharing with you our favorite teams, once you get a chance to pick your own. In the US, follow along by searching #wleague on Twitter in the late night Friday hours. Watching games scroll by on Twitter is actually fun, although with entire networks dedicated to soccer, yes, we mean you, Fox Soccer, how about some more women's pro and international soccer coverage, thank you.
Meanwhile, this is happening and he doesn't plan to share*. Hope you have a grand Thanksgiving and get to play some pick up football with people you love (or whatever your favorite holiday traditions are). Among the many things we are thankful for is you. And please drop us a holiday album suggestion in the comments (or @ us one on Twitter.) We need a new album this year. Enjoy your holiday season.
