Greetings once more, fellow travelers on the journey of life.  Too much?  Maybe.  I’m just glad it’s the weekend again.  Or it could be that I’m just hungry.  It’s lunch time when I’m writing this, and I’m lusting after some chinese food (I’m eating food from home though, and my wallet better thank me for this one).  Either way, it’s time to get this party started, and there’s no better way than our weekly playlist.  We’ve got lots of good tunes coming this time, and there’s a little something for every taste in there.  I personally included the CHVRCHES song I’ve been jamming on all week, because sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the bleak and the heavy, and CHVRCHES whip ass anyway.  I’ll catch you all next week.  Back to dreaming about chow mein…
