Just yesterday, I wrote a post about finding those things that make you happy. Well I can't think of anything that makes BGLU happier than music- especially songs that within the first two notes make us holler "That's my jam!" *insert stank face*. Well the British have given us reason #1812 why they are cooler than us: ThisisMyJam.com
This genius idea that you are going to be mad that you didn't come up with is pretty much my latest and hopefully last (we know that's not true) internet obsession. While I have managed to dodge Pinterest, this was inevitable. According to their Facebook page, here's the idea: This is My Jam is "a place to put your favorite song of the moment & hear great music, handpicked every day by friends." So basically you look up your current favorite jam through their database, which includes audio and You Tube videos, and post it to your page. I love this idea! I think most of us know the difference between our favorite songs and our jams. The reason why I love it is because it's pretty specific. I mean saying that something is your jam means that it just hits you in that special spot. A jam makes you put on that stank face. For instance, Slick Rick's "Mona Lisa"? My JAM! Lisa Loeb's "Stay"? Not so much.
Another great thing about it is that you get to discover new music. Today I was introduced to Lianna La Havas, through someone's Jams list. I have never heard of her before. I am definitely feeling this.
So check out This is My Jam and tell us what you think. Oh and you can also follow people so if you join up, follow me at www.thisismyjam.com/toyaisrandom. I'd love to hear what your favorite jam of the day is. You only get one so don't get overzealous like I almost did.
In related news, someone asked us via Twitter about a BGLU trip to the UK. Yeah I think that we are long overdue for that. However at this rate, our tickets may be one way.
