Mix Monday (guilty pleasures)

So this is SOS’s first official mix Monday, the plan is every Monday I put a little input on a general theme and have some songs that coincide. Todays theme is guilty pleasure aka a little peak at some things I personally take pleasure in.

Nerds: OK so I’m not exactly the first or the only one to say I LOVE NERDS. But its ridiculous how much I enjoy hanging around them, factoids, computer jargon all too engrossing! Not to mention the new wave of Geek Chic, LOVE LOVE LOVE!

plastic jewelery: I have an arsenal of plastic jewelery hidden away in my bedroom, not from the world but from my 7 year old sister. Its something I don't want to share in fear of her losing them. Yeah my current plastic piece of choice is this dollar sign ring I won at chuck E. cheese for 150 points.

Ice cream for breakfast: It's scientifically proven to taste best in the morning...

jonas brothers: Yes, Its true. I do take pleasure in the whiny little bastards. They dress well and they're just too catchy to say no to. Hey I know they're like 12 but they dress well and they're songs are just oh too poptastic to refuse.

jumping on the bed: Ok the whole 'mokeys jumping on the bed' and hitting heads are for the irresponsible jumpers. I've been jumping responsibly since 1991.

vampire lit: Well in particular the Stephenie Meyers Twilight series. Yeah whenever people ask what twilights about I try to leave out the whole vampire/werewolf scenario... I mean I actually don't mind to mention the vampire thing, but having vampires in the romance genre instead of sci-fi, well its just awkward.

some songs you may be contritely partial to:

So much love
by the summer rocket: Yes some may classify this as whiny but it just takes me back to elementary school summers and so I sneak a listen and dance in my chair during class... sometimes during lecture.

That's just the way we roll by the Jonas Brothers: I guess the same can be said about the Jonas brothers as for the summer rocket, its a mix of nostalgic listening and melodic poppyness that can't be dismissed.

Saturday Salmon by team9 vs Chemical brothers vs Chicago: This Is a hilarious song, It's like a rap for idiots, those who come across this song on my computer think that I still have it as a joke. But i seriously enjoy it. I have no defense for my odd listening but yeah, you give it a try.

Young Turks Vs. Franchize boys
by Ham burgaz: Truly guilty listening. Ham burgaz remixes are odd, but I'm just too inclined to their rap/techno. I even like the fact they incorporated Rod Stewart in the song, How random is that?

Je ne te connais pas by Prototypes: Not really a guilty pleasure song as it is just pleasurable and upbeat...

Flux (JFK remix) by Bloc Party: Something I like to listen to while I accountably jump on beds.

Who is She
by I Monster: Haunting, so it won a place in my vampire reading playlist. Not really embarrassing that I listen to the song as much as me having a vampire reading playlist set up... other songs on my Vampire playlist:
So that's the Monday's mix, hope you fancied it.
& Happy St. Patrick's day!
(completely off topic) below I took a couple pictures of my Sunday's best.
