LA LA LAND

L.A. L.A.

La La Land

Oh, Hart Beat. It’s cold here. It’s so cold here. It’s so so so cold and miserable here in New York that even The New York Times is writing about how today was one of the worst Monday’s. But, instead of complaining about how frozen my toes are and how slow the subway was this morning, let’s dream about L.A. instead, okay?

Because, have you seen La La Land!?! If there ever was a movie made for Hart Beat this would be it. The entire time I was watching it I felt like every scene was specially made for me. The music, the costumes, the light, the people… I can’t even. It was magical. Just watch this clip from the movie here. Ryan Gossling and Emma Stone sing the main theme from the movie.

Through the whole movie, I kept forgetting where I was and what time period the movie was supposed to be in. They would walk down the street and then Emma Stone would get in a Prius and I’d be all Ohhhhhh, right right right. This is happening now, not in the 1920’s. And the music! Lucky for you and me both the soundtrack version and the official movie score are both on Spotify so we can all pretend we live in the magical world of La La Land.

Have you seen the movie? If you haven’t run/walk/dance/tap dance there asap.

P.S. I forgive the Times because they published an article about all the classic dance moves that La La Land has in it. Definitely worth a read!

2017, Getting Brighter Every Day

Hart Beat! It’s 2017! I have some resolutions that I want to share but what I really just want to put out into the internet tonight is this amazing video. A few things before you watch; One, if you don’t know this is a video starring street style icon and 87-year-old Grandmother slash Instagram star Baddie Winkle. Two, yes this is an advertisement for Smirnoff. Three, it came out a few months ago but whatever. And four, of course. How did you know? This is who I want to be in sixty years.

What do I see when I look in the mirror? A diamond. 87 karat. Getting brighter every day. We all should. We were born to shake, dip and roll. So when people say to me, granny sit down you’ll break something. I just smile and say, “Honey, the only thing I’m about to break is your man’s heart.”

BADDIE YES. And this song (because I know you’re obsessing like I am) is Breakout by Arnie Love & The Lovettes. This song is officially the best way to ring in 2017.
