Snooty’s birthday is a popular event at the South Florida Museum, the highlight of which is the presentation of a cake made of vegetables and fruits for Snooty while the visitors all sing Happy Birthday for him. Due to his known date of birth, Snooty is evidence for how long manatees are able to live.
Hey! Here’s the world’s oldest manatee! What an excellent nightcap.
Head full of tears and none will leave
If I am in a particularly rough spot in my life (say I’m hungry, or caught in traffic) and I find out that Lil Bub has passed away, I will straight up stop my breathing until I die.
Daft Punk, “Get Lucky feat. Pharrell”
This band was my introduction to house music. Road trips at the age of 11, Dad received his first and, to this day, only speeding ticket blasting “One More Time.” And as much as I enjoyed the crunchy post-Justice stompfest of Human After All, and as little as I enjoy this sort of light funk crooning in pretty much every other band’s music, there’s something very sweet and cute and inspiring about this. It’s just so basic and straightforward and… Pop. I’m really looking forward to Random Access Memories.
Chiddy Bang, “Mind Your Manners”
I don’t really understand addressing one’s haters with anger or disgust— just blind them with your grin cause your life is better than best. Chiddy Bang serves up the sound of shinin’ right here.
