Somebody That I Used To Know

Considering that this song is #4 on iTunes, you've probably already heard it, &/or added it to your iTunes library. However... I just discovered this song this past weekend and have probably listened to it a dozen times in the past couple days, so I had to share it with you. I can't get enough of the haunting melody!

I also found a fascinating cover of the song on YouTube. The intensity of the music isn't quite as good as the original, but overall the video is pretty cool. As someone who took one semester of guitar about 10 years ago, I can't even imaging how difficult it must be to play one guitar with 4 other people while you're all singing! Lol. They make it look remarkably easy though. ;)


  1. I LOVE this song. I think everyone has a somebody that they used to know.

  2. I'm learning this song on my ukulele! I'm so obsessed with it. <3

  3. I absolutely adore this song... though I think my boyfriend is getting tired of hearing it.

  4. This has been in my head since we found these videos on Monday. :P I went ahead and re-watched the second one just now to really listen to the lyrics (since you can't really understand the original) - I like to know what's being said - helps to sing along! :)

  5. I'm glad it became stuck in your head too, Jen :p

  6. now it;s in my head too ( see above comment) giggle. Thank you for linking up to the Thursday hop. Sorry I'm behind in saying thank you. My Monday post will explain my delay.Hope to see you again this Thursday. xo

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
