As you might have guessed, I've been back from vacation for quite some time. I've been in a bit of a procrastinating mood since then. I'm just listening to this rather fabulous song though, so I've become inspired to at least post about that.

I'm talking about Florence and the Machine's "You've Got the Love (the XX Remix)", which you can listen to and download here. There's also a second song called "Kiss With a Fist" (about which I cannot say anything, since I have not listened to it) and a third song called "Cosmic Love" is here. The remix of "You've Got the Love" is killer and the other two songs are great too, they're obviously more melodic though since they haven't been souped up with electronic beats. You'll have to see what you prefer.

On another note, I've been watching trailers for movies lately and the one for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are is fantastic. What's particularly charming is the Arcade Fire song "Wake Up". It's a couple of years old by now I think. Nevertheless it fits the trailer perfectly and is a good song whether or not you have the images of the movie to go with it or not. If you haven't heard it or like it and want more of it, you can get it here.

Last, but not least for right now, this is not music related. It's just something fun I found on the internet. It's a website called Photo505. The site has a large selection of templates where you can upload your own pictures and have them used in some pretty neat photo effects. Sort of. It's a bit hard to explain, but if you stop by you'll see for yourself. It's a cool way to waste a couple of minutes. Plus, some of the effects, if you use the right picture, turn out pretty stellar. Hope you like.
