Recently I’ve been listening to a lot of different comedians on Spotify. Originally I just wanted to listen to the comedy album Amy Schumer made, but the thing about the free Spotify App for iPod is that it only plays on shuffle, which weirdly means they will play other artists who you did not want to hear. Well, this may have been a blessing because I’ve been able to discover more comedy acts and I made a playlist of some the funnier acts I heard. Enjoy!
I really didn’t like this song when I first heard it. Like, whenever it came on the radio I would be like “ugh” and change the station. But then I actually listened to “Am I Wrong” by Nico & Vinz and realized how it truly embodies what I’m feeling at the moment and how it is nothing like I thought it was, making it #PhillipsSongOfTheDay.
My new year’s resolution this past year was to laugh every day for a year, which is a lot easier than you’d think. I recently started getting into searching YouTube and Spotify for different comedians and just being either grossed out by them (some of them don’t know when to shut up) or be laughing hysterically (which is awkward when I’m at work at the library putting books away…).
One of my friends posted a video on Facebook of Amy Schumer playing “air double dutch” on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and I thought it was kind of funny and weird. On the side where YouTube has the suggested videos, there was one of Amy Schumer doing standup with the title “I’m not shallow, I’m just really pretty,” which I thought was intriguing so I watched it. Long story short, I ended up searching YouTube for more videos of Amy Schumer. Here are some clips that I found that I thought were hilarious; she really knows how to tell a great story. Enjoy!

Amy Schumer on Ellen:
You guys, I just bought my first rap album!!!
So I tell this to my friend, and she goes “which one?”
And I’m like, “Iggy Azalea!” so proud that I actually own a rap album…feeling like I’ve grown so much.
And she goes “ugh, she’s so fake.”
Me: Um, she’s the realest, like get over yourself.
So, if you’re like me, you’re single while everyone you know is in a loving relationship. Which is absolutely lovely (#sarcasm). I decided to play off this awkward situation and create a new playlist where we would celebrate our independence (we can do whatever we want!), we can reminisce with songs of why being in a relationship isn’t all bliss like my friends would like to make me believe, and listen to songs that would just take us away from feeling so lonely (which we aren’t feeling…ahem). Happy listening!
P.S. I don’t know if you noticed this, but I chose only songs that were released as singles…get it?
I’ve had this ridiculous headache all week, but today it’s really bad. Which basically puts me in a sluggish mood, basically not wanting to do anything. So, I decided to just hang out (i.e. do nothing), relax, and find some new music; I’m kind of sick of the music I’ve been listening to recently. It’s been a kind of musical drought. So I flip through Spotify and decided to test out Iggy Azalea’s album The New Classic. I clicked on her song “Bounce,” and found my booty shaking. Well, I was at least tapping my foot…and there was some head banging going on… Given the fact I really don’t want to do anything right now and this song gave me the desire to dance, “Bounce” by Iggy Azalea must be #PhillipsSongOfTheDay.

Happy Fourth of July to my American readers! I hope y’all have fun and are safe. Any of you who are, like me, being hit by Hurricane Arthur, stay dry! So far it’s not so bad…just wet and humid….always fun weather.
On our last day in San Francisco, we originally planned on waking up early and riding a cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf…we had noticed that the line for the cable cars run long, so we thought we could beat the traffic. However, since our evening outing to the Golden Gate Park the night before didn’t go as planned (everything was closed), we decided to head back there. The Japanese Tea Garden had a sign saying that their “free” hours were 9-10 a.m. on Friday, which was perfect for us.
