Oh, it has been a crappy 18 hours. For some reason, my knees have gone into a crazy flare. It’s extremely painful and I don’t really want to think about it, but I can’t concentrate on very much else. I am taking the pretty music escape route.
Now playing is She & Him Volume 2. Pretty, pretty, pretty. She & Him are Zooey Deschanel and Matt Ward (which feels weird to type because I know a guy by that name). Everything about their music is pretty: the instrumentals, the vocals, the gorgeous harmonies, the bittersweet lyrics…everything.
Everyone should dance like that.
I think that if I could adopt the appearance and talents of anyone, it would be Zooey Deschanel. Not only does she have a stunning face, gorgeous figure and immaculate vintage style sense, but she sings like a bellbird in Spring. Somehow, she manages to be incredibly beautiful, yet humble; quirky, yet not oddball, just interesting.
Everything about her enchants and earns my respective envy. Her music and dresses alone are enough to draw my attention, it’s kind of easy to forget that she has also had a pretty amazing acting career. I love that She & Him don’t exploit that fact, their music really speaks for itself.
It doesn’t hurt that as a band, they look adorable and take lovely photographs.

If you’ve not yet had the pleasure of bopping along to the melodies of She & Him, I thoroughly recommend going to iTunes right now and buying both of their albums. Right now. My favourites from Volume One are Change Is Hard and Sweet Darlin’. Frontrunners for Volume 2 include Thieves and Home. If you happen to share my girl crush, you can also find Zooey on Twitter and Tumblr.
