#1 - WHAT IS THE ONE ALBUM (OR EP OR SONG) THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE THE VERY NEXT MUSICAL THING THAT EVERYONE PRESSES PLAY ON THE NEXT TIME THEY FIND THEMSELVES THINKING “WHAT SHOULD I LISTEN TO NOW”?
If you’re at your computer or on your phone or whatever definitely chuck on ‘Shake Some Action’ by The Flamin’ Groovies. It’s not an obscure, deep cut and you’ve probably heard it before - I was watching Clueless awhile back and heard a pretty stock standard cover of it lol - but damnnnn does that song kick, am I right???
Beautiful harmonies, cool guitar lines and just an overall killer vibe. It’s one of my favourite songs to listen to when strutting down a street with my hands in my pockets when I’m tryna stay warm and bliss out.
#2 - WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE OR TV SHOW THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE NEXT IN EVERYBODY’S NETFLIX QUEUE (OK, DOESN’T HAVE TO BE NETFLIX, WE’RE ALL INTERNET ADULTS HERE AND KNOW HOW TO FIND ANYTHING ONLINE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER)?
To be honest I’ve been watching Brooklyn Nine Nine a bunch…
…like I mean I’ve watched it all before but I think I’m on my 3rd round in between new episodes which might be a little sad haha, but it’s so wholesome and a great cast and I don’t need to explain myself to you but I sure will recommend it.
#3. I (AND BY “I” I MEAN “THE PERSON THAT IS READING THIS”) AM GOING TO THE BOOK STORE (OK, PROBABLY AMAZON) TO FIND THE VERY NEXT BOOK THAT I WILL BE PUTTING SOME EXTREMELY VALUABLE ‘ME-TIME' ASIDE FOR. WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU GET, IF YOU WERE ME (AND, I SUPPOSE, YOU HADN’T ALREADY READ WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SUGGEST)?
Well I took my name from the Luke Davies' book ‘Candy’ cause it’s one of my favourites. It’s pretty grim in places, but it’s a fairly truthful account of battling heroin addiction and the way that affects relationships and your whole world pretty much.
It’s Australian and there’s something wonderful about reading books that talk of places you’ve been to or know.
#4 - WHAT IS THE ONE WEBSITE (OR JUST ANY OLD INTERNET THING: APP, GIF, SERVICE, WHATEVER) THAT YOU WOULD GET REALLY DOWN IN THE DUMPS ABOUT IF IT WERE TO SUDDENLY GO AWAY?
Straight up if Google was gone I’d be pretty upset. I know there’s a tonne of other search engines out there but there’s something about Google that keeps me coming back time and time again.
Maybe it’s the colours? Or the way they change the design occasionally? I’m still not sure but I’d implore you to give yourself a couple minutes to appreciate google.
#5 - AND FINALLY… PLEASE GIVE ONE COMPLETELY UNAIDED RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD START DOING / USING / WATCHING / EATING / THINKING / QUITING / ETC-ING TO MAKE THEIR LIVES A LITTLE BIT MORE BETTER AND/OR BEARABLE.
I think we could all do with a sprinkling of manners and good etiquette. Nothing I love more than a well placed ‘Excuse me’ or a quick ‘Bless you’ when someone’s sneezing and they’re forced to say thank you in return whilst a stream of mucus is running down their nostrils.
So pardon me, but may I be excused? Thank you so much for your time reading this and I hope you have a lovely day.
OK folks, there you have it. Things that Candy thinks you should consider incorporating into your day/life. Before you log off and go brush up on your manners, make sure to follow Candy on Facebook / Instagram / Twitter and make sure to politely swing by Bandcamp and press play on some sweet tunes.
