Monday Earworm: Hozier

There’s a lot of cultural stuff going on this week. Mardi Gras, Valentines’ Day, and Ash Wednesday are the big things I can think of right now. So celebrate how best makes sense to you, but here’s what I’m going to do: have some King Cake, write a poem or a love letter, and then make a Lenten promise.

How about you? Are you doing anything special this week to commemorate any of this exciting stuff? Anything else you’re celebrating or observing? Tell us in the comments section!

And in the meantime, enjoy this short film, which is far superior to the actual official music video for this song.



Monday Earworm: Portugal. The Man

This song has been stuck in my head and in my kids’ heads and in my husband’s head for most of the last week. (Blame it on my iPod.)

And it’s totally danceable. In fact we cannot stop dancing when it comes on. Except for my husband, who doesn’t really love dancing all that much. (Ah well.)
