Cold days with Old Man Luedecke

Madre mia, it’s cold in Brooklyn today. How about where you’re reading from Hart Beat? I’ve been curled up in my apartment working from home this afternoon, trying to avoid the cold. I’m really excited to celebrate G.’s birthday at the amazing Videology in South Williamsburg for this event. (Yay Wes Anderson trivia!)

Meanwhile I want to share with you a great artist I found poking around Spotify last night. The artist name is Old Man Luedecke and his entire album “Hinterland” is completely amazing and addicting. This song posted here is one of my favorite ones from the album, it really feels so true. Stay warm, Hart Beat!

At the airport there are kisses that cannot be believed
At the airport there are kisses there whose memory never leaves
Yehaw this guitar banjo picking is pulling at my heartstrings.

Happy birthday G!!!!

Guess what Hart Beat! It’s such an exciting day today! It’s G’s birthday!
Happy birthday G!!!!!! This is such an exciting day and I’m so excited to be living with you this year. You are the best roommate and friend any girl could ask for. Since it’s thankfully the age of aquarius (the best sign, no?) I thought you would enjoy this video. G, this post is for you.
Love around the world in 80 days,

Bike dreams

Hey Hart Beat. I’ve been having so many vivid dreams lately. I mean, if you know me than you know vivid dreams are nothing new but, I’ve been really shocked lately in the intensity I’ve been experiencing  the past couple nights. In my dream last night I found a new bike tucked in the back of my Brooklyn apartment closet and it’s had me thinking of bikes all day. Brooklyn has a huge bike scene (which I love, it reminds me of being back in Europe) and I ride my bike (featured above) all over the neighborhood. This summer I really want to start biking to work in Chelsea Market. What do you think, Hart Beat? You bike much?

Biking by the beach. 
I wish I could do this in NY.

Sentimental romantic

I’m not sentimental–I’m as romantic as you are. The idea, you know, is that the sentimental person thinks things will last–the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won’t.

Countdown to warm days

Hey Hart Beat, happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Did you hear the president’s inauguration speech? I rushed home at noon to hear it on npr. I can’t believe it’s already the end of January, Hart Beat. I feel like Thanksgiving and November was just the other day. Now it’s almost February, dios mio. Last year I had so much fun writing a countdown to Valentines Day series and I was thinking of doing another one, what do you think Hart Beat?

Personally, I have another countdown going in my head (26 days). This year for the week of my birthday my mom and I are going to escape New York and go somewhere warm. I’m really excited to get out of the city for a week and take a break with my mom. I probably won’t be blogging from the beach but I will take tons of pictures for you. I can’t wait to get my summer hair and tan on. How about on your end, Hart Beat, are you traveling anywhere next month?
