Way to save your bros board.
Life is wonderful. Life should be positive. When it’s blown to pieces, that’s when it becomes art. Art is messy and dirty when it pours out of you.

I finally found a gif that captures my exact reaction to the final minutes of the How I Met Your Mother Finale
"Beautiful Trash (Feat. Megan Washington)" - Lanu
Lanu is the solo alias of Lance Ferguson, the prolific producer and leader of the acclaimed Australian funk band The Bamboos. This retro venture is quite a departure for Lance, but it’s a damn catchy tune, influenced by some sixties soul and the pop of the early 90’s. The breathy, enchanting vocals are performed by Megan Washington of Kings of Leon “Rodeo” fame, and are perfect for the jolly mood created by the fuzzy guitars, chirping keys, and light whistles. I don’t know about the rest of our readers, but I am stuck in the Midwest where we just got another grimy dose of snow and this is a refreshing, upbeat tune amidst the depressing turn of the weather.
Lanu’s album, Her 12 Faces, is out on April 19

I know we all think we’re immortal, we’re supposed to feel that way, we’re graduating. But like our brief four years in high school, what makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever. What makes it precious, is that it ends. I know that now more than ever and I say it today of all days to remind us that time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Make yours count for something, fight for what matters to you. No matter what. Cause even if we fall short, even if we fail, what better way is there to live?
It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today. But there will be dark days ahead of us too. There will be days where you feel all alone and that’s when hope is needed most. No matter how buried it gets, or lost you feel, you must promise me, that you will hold on to hope and keep it alive, we have to be greater than what we suffer. My wish for you, is to become hope. People need that. So as we look around here today, at all of the people who helped make us who we are, I know it feels like we’re saying goodbye, but we will carry a piece of each other into everything that we do next, to remind us of who we are, and of who we’re meant to be. I’ve had a great four years with you, and I’ll miss you all very much."
