Yoga and Coffee

I woke up this morning. It was later then I wanted to wake up but when you go to sleep at 3 am its hard to get up at 9 am. Last night as my previous post tales I deactivated my facebook account. And you know what the first thing I did this morning was? I got up grabbed my phone and headed to the bathroom to take my morning glory. I haven't hardly got my pants before I was checking facebook on my iphone. I was confused when I couldn't get on. I had already forgot that I deactivated it. Wow. How lame is that? Its sad but my life was too consumed by fake relationships. Everyone I care about I call.

anywho. I did yoga after pooping. Good night I'm sore. But it is a good quiet time in the morning. I've always heard we should have a quite time to just think.

I have to work on. but soon i'll let everyone know how Ashley and I's experience in cleaning out the closet continues. Until then remember.

Killing Facebook.

The title says it all. Facebook is a distraction and I don't need it. If you want to keep up with me... call me. I like talking.

Tiny Browders


Yesterday was the start of something new. The truth is life has been busy. I work all week and all weekend long. This pass weekend I worked 50 hours alone. Thats not counting the work it did during the week. I'm thinking this is to much. I started thinking I have a lot going on. I need to do something about this. While I'm not at a point where I can stop working so much I am at a point where I can start simplifying my life.

Last night Ashley and I started cleaning out one closet and throwing away a bunch of stuff that we (a) didn't know we had or (b) haven't and wouldn't use ever. It was a little difficult but it was good. We got ridded of a truck load of stuff. Seriously a full truck load. From one (1) closet and we aren't even done with the closet. Why do we have some much stuff? Think of all the money we might have saved. Not only from that stuff but from having a smaller apartment cause we didn't need all the room to storage all the stuff that we don't need. Tomorrow night after we have dinner with some friends we are going to go back and finish that closet.

Next I'm going to get ridded of all the books that I have that I (a) haven't read or (b) have read but I'm not going to reread them (I think I see a pattern). I will keep a handful of books but the rest are gone. After that its on to my clothes. I don't wear half of them anyways. Major overhaul on this. I have a dresser and a closet with clothes. Why you ask? I have no idea. Half of them don't fit. Some might say that it gives me a goal to lose weight and fit back into them. Come on. Lets be honest for a moment. Am I really going to lose that much weight anytime soon? NO. If I do I can for buy new ones and get ridded of the olds. Which brings me to the next point. If I buy a new shirt I have to get ridded of a old shirt. Thats something I want to live by.

One last thing. I did yoga this morning. I found a website about minimalist yoga. I enjoyed it. I need to take it slower. Focus on my breathing. I'm get there. It was nice. It was hard but it was good.

I would like to say that I'm going to blog more but I can't make that promise. But instead of going to watching to tv until 3 am i'm going to read a book and fall to sleep and get up and do yoga. Its time to slow down. Time to size down. Good night.

Andrew Belle

Today we are looking at an artist named Andrew Belle. Originally from Chicago and now living in Nashville Belle is a smooth pop artist. More in the vein of The Swell Season Belle's songs have been on tons of TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, 90210 ( the new one) and many more. He was voted best new artist of out Chicago by MTV (even though MTV is crap Belle is not).

Belle is also part of a collective musical group called Ten out of Tenn just if a bunch of different artists from Nashville who get together make a CD and then tour. A lot of get music is made by Ten out of Tenn so I highly suggest going and checking out the different artist.

The song is called "Static Waves" The video below is not done by Belle but it is the song full song with something watch.

Check out Andrew Belle

Circa Survive

As i'm sure yall know Circa Survive third album is coming out next week. I've listen to a few songs and I can tell you this. It sounds for a production point completely different. The first two CD where released by Equal Vision but this new one is being release by Altantic Records. The new stuff sounds from a production point of view a big label release. Its more polished, its bigger sounds and its cleaner, its more compressed. That doesnt mean its bad, it just means they stepped up their game. Listen to it. see what you think.

For examples of that i'm talking. Before listening to the new stuff go listen to their song "Stop the F@$&ing Car" its on their myspace the last song. Listen for like a minute then go listen to their new song "Get Out" the second song on myspace. Do you hear the difference?

So about Iceland

I know I promised everyone that we were going to visit iceland next. But because of the comments i heard about that last song ( and I only heard comments from one person... one know who you are) I going to play a song from Janelle Monae. Originally from Kansas City the now Atlanta GA singer has teamed up with Big Boi from Outkast. Now if this song is boring to You I will cry.

The song is called Tightrope and its off of her up coming album coming out in May. To points:
1. This girl can sing.
2. I wish I could dance like her.

If you like her then I would recommend that you check out her "group". Monae is a member of a group call Wondaland Arts Society. Its a label of sorts but they claim to be something different. Check it out.

Going to Scotland to scare rabbits.

So I did not mean for this blog to turn into a country jumping tour of music but oh well. Today we are in Scotland to check a band I just came across. They are called "Frightened Rabbit" and they are good. They have been on tour opening up for Modest Mouse. Their single is called "Swim Until You Can't See Land" though its not my favorite song by them it is still a really good song, and it is the only official music video up.

If you liked that song you check out the song "The Modern Leper". I hope you enjoy them.

Next time on the Browder Promise we will be traveling to Iceland. No its not Sigur Ros so dont worry. so grab you coat and open your mind to something new.

We Goin Irish Tonight.

I love The Swell Season. I thought about having the blog just be that statement and then play the video from their new CD. Nevertheless I feel the pressure to write more.

The Swell Season is basically two people. Guitar player and singer Glen Hansard and Piano player and signer Marketa Irglova. They became famous as a group when they stared and wrote the music for the movie "Once" and if you having seen the movie and you like this band then you will like the movie. Thats the Browder Promise. Anywho Hansard is from Ireland and Irglova is Czech.

This is their single from their new album "Strict Joy" called "Low Rising"

Did you hear that groove? Man thats baby making music right there except for the part where the song is about a broken relationship. But I guess what I'm trying to say is Robbie you should play this song and see if you can make a baby. Booya

And thats the Browder Promise.

Metal and Country

So Randy Houser is a country artist. He is one of those "I'm more redneck then you and i'll prove it by how many redneck stereotypes I can say in one song" kinda artist. Anywho I want you to listen to the song "Whistlin' Dixie" and pay close attention to the second verse.

Did you hear it? If you take the gtr and double time it would have a metal break down. Ha. I think its funny. As straight forward as country is this guy put in a dissonant chord.

I like it. And I know everyone hates my opinions of music now. That I have fallen from grace if you will. but i'm determined to climb back up. I want to open people up to different things and maybe you'll like them and maybe not.
