Aw, New Additions to the Family!

Awww...there's a new addition to the family!  Or two, or three.  Congrats!  Oh sorry, no, it's not children, but music.  GROOVY. Music.
Ski Playlist Revisions:
* Hypno Switch by The Black Rabbits is just straight up, groovy, playful fun.  A freaking party to ski to. 
* You Only Live Once by The Strokes (which, hey ho, I got their Magna logo shirt for Christmas.  Cheers eh?)  is just nice.  Mmm.
* Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men (iTunes' current free single!) is SO much fun, and freaking good to boot.  That rousing chorus bit?  I'm sold. And a nice, upbeat, joyful song to ski to, non?
* La Roux's Bulletproof - always a classic.
*Ellie Goulding's Lights - welllll done, Miz Goulding.  What a lovely ski song.
* The Black Key's Lonely Boy - how good is their new album?  Insanely so.
& ... *Alfie, by Lily Allen.  Because I will never turn down a good ska song about little brothers doing drugs.  Or something like that.  By which I mean...if it's Lily, I'll take it.  In fact...I listened to her song called "Nan, You're A Window Shopper".  Are you beginning to understand the level of love and devotion I have for Lily Allen's amusing, upbeat, catchy tunes?  But can you really resist these lyrics? "Now how the hell do you expect that you'll ever get laid when all you do is stay inside and play your computer games?  Now, there's no need to swear, please don't despair, my dear mon frere -Oh little brother, please refrain from doing that, I'm trying to help you out, so stop being a twat"  You can't, that's how.  And that's the gospel truth.
Hope your Christmas was marvelous and your New Year's crazy go have an insane ski season, OKAY?!
xxx and all that jazz
your favorite skiing maniac,

Going to watch The Lizzie McGuire Movie!  Beat that, suckers!
(Note: That was a rhetorical challenge.  You can't beat that.  Truth.)
AND The Strokes' Heart In a Cage just came on.  I'd say this is a successful evening.
