Watsky

If you haven't done it yet, you should get George Watsky's surname-titled album. Here's an example of why this is a good idea:



I played this track for my brother on my parents' stereo, and after the line, "but I love my Dad, that motherfucker read to me," my mother turned to me and said, "This is crude."

"But Mom," I said, "he's talking about how much he loves his father. You just don't like that he said 'motherfucker.'"

And she said, "Well, I guess that's it."

Seriously, though, get this album. Listen to it while walking somewhere you don't want to go, so to provide the courage you need for your journey. Put tracks from this album on mixes that you make for your friends, that they too can feel this strong. Together you will laugh at the weaknesses that make you human and worthy of love. I work at a record store now; the people expect me to know about these things.
