Hannah Hunt, the best breakup song

Hi Hart Beat. How’s your weekend going? I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday and I’m even more excited that I get to spend some time with my oldest friend Sammy. Shout-out to S. tonight for sharing this beautiful song with me. (Second shout-out to Spotify for making the world of music sharing such a wonderful place.)

I hadn’t listened to Vampire Weekend’s most recent album until Sam recommended this song to me and now I can’t believe where I was for so long. “Hannah Hunt,” the song posted bellow, is what has taken me so strongly, and no, not because it’s about another Hannah, because it is one of the most simple and achingly beautiful song about a breakup I’ve heard in a while.

In Santa Barbara, Hannah cried
And missed those freezing beaches
And I walked into town
To buy some kindling for the fire,
Hannah tore the New York Times up into pieces

If I can’t trust you then damn it, Hannah
There’s no future, there’s no answer
Though we live on the US dollar
You and me, we got our own sense of time

“Hannah Hunt” by Vampire Weekend

Hannah goes to Spain

Ha… gotcha there, didn’t I? Actually Hannah is going to Spain, my roommate Hannah, and she leaves tomorrow! Ah! Gene! I just spend the last hour talking her ear off about all the places she has to go when she gets to Madrid. I even drew her a Hannah Hart Beat appropriate map.

I’m so jealous. Good thing my brother is going to Barcelona this summer and I’m going to visit both him and my favorite city while he’s there. What are you doing in July? Wanna come?

Picture from two years ago.
The most beautiful city.
And, a little late post surprise. Here’s a picture of the map of Madrid I drew for Hannah… it’s not to scale but, the important things are there (like la mallorquina and red).

Friday night in Williamsburg

Good morning Hart Beat. How was your Friday night? My roommate Hannah and I had a fun time in Williamsburg and I wanted to share some pictures with you all out there in the internet world. My amazing friend M. from study abroad now lives on the lower east side with a good friend and last night her roommate Morgan preformed her senior year dance piece at Public Assembly. I had seen her piece, “Last Chance for Bronze,” preformed by Morgan and others at Conn College last spring and I was so excited to hear that she was preforming it again in the city.

The piece is beautiful and emotional and Morgan preforms it with such talent that I was honored to see it again. I didn’t have my camera on my but here are some pictures I snapped on my iphone. Thank you so much Morgan for the show!

P.S. Then Hannah and I stumbled into a Rod and Gun meeting/concert/apartment party. I was just like being back in Maine at Bates. That with a little Bass Pro Shop thrown into the mix. Oh Brooklyn, I love you.

New look for 2013!

Hi Hart Beat!! I hope you all have been enjoying the new posts I’ve been writing so far in January. One of my resolutions was to work more on the blog and to get at you readers more often and I’m happy that this resolution is off to a good start!

I’m also excited today to reveal the new 2013 look of Hart Beat, and introduce the new(ish) name of Hannah Hart Beat! The new heading of the blog (taken by my amazing friend and new roommate Hannah Z.) is a great welcome to the new year and a fresh image for what’s in store for Hart Beat come twenty-thirteen.

I have had so much fun writing this past year for all you loyal and lovely readers. Sometimes it really hits me how far the blog has come! I feel like it was just yesterday I was sitting in the car with my good friend L. talking about names and themes. Originally, Hart Beat was a place to share romantic ideas and, obviously the new Hannah Hart Beat will be heavily romantic as well (I mean, it’s me guys). I’m excited to share that the new Hart Beat will also include more of my own photography, short stories and news about my life. 

Anyway, happy reading Hart Beat! Look tonight for anther toupish post with romantic slant and let me know what you think!

Our record player

Hi Hart Beat! I didn’t really know what to blog about tonight so I think I’ll just write a little something about my life in Brooklyn while my roommate G. beautifully serenades me on her guitar. (Sorry about the typing key noise G.)

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful apartment in Brooklyn. La di da, G. and I live in this apartment. I hope you got that. Anyway, what I really want to talk about in this post is the amazing record player that G. brought to the apartment when we moved in together. I’ve always been secretly obsessed with being hipster enough to have a record player and actually listen to records on it since I was about 16 and saw the movie “Garden State.” Anyone else?

Now that I’m 22 and living in Brooklyn I guess it’s finally appropriate. And fun. Seriously Hart Beat. G. brought in about two bags of records (including the “Dirty Dancing Soundtrack” and the original “Motown” album as well as many of the classic sixties and seventies albums from back in our parents days) and I love listening to them. Not to mention that my mom gave all of her old records, including “Blue” by Joni Mitchell and “Blood on the Tracks” by a Mr. Bob Dylan.

What about you Hart Beat? Do you have a record player? Do you want one? And what albums would you have? I really want to go out and by the new xx album as well as the Lee Fields album. Maybe on Bleecker?

Amazing times

The past week has been such a whirlwind. An amazing whirlwind. I feel like I’m abroad again. My parents came into the city for a couple of days yesterday. They met me at work and then took my roommate G. and my good friend R. (gotcha this time) out to an amazing dinner at Westville. It was so nice to have everyone together in the city. Then today my mom and I met up with one of her best friends in Williamsburg and walked around for a while. I love having people visit and this weekend it’s so nice to relax in Brooklyn finally. G. and I are having a apartment warming party tonight. It’s a potluck wine and cheese thing, want to come Hart Beat?

D. and Boris.

Love in vain

Hi Hart Beat. Cold October nights are romantic, right? I’m sorry for the delay in posting for you. Brooklyn and life in New York has been amazing and overwhelming and exhilarating all at the same time and I haven’t had very much time to sit at my computer to write to you.

Tonight I want to share a song I heard the other day at a place near my apartment in Greenpoint. For a while I was obsessed with the song “Wild Horses” by The Rolling Stones and I used to love playing it on my guitar and singing along. I had to give it a break for a little while though and I was really happy to hear this other sad but romantic song by the stones the other night. Sad romantic songs are my favorite and I’m really glad to have this new song for all of this new New York life. What do you think?

Well, I followed her to the station 
with a suitcase in my hand
Well, it’s hard to tell, 
it’s hard to tell, 
but all true love’s in vain.
