MEDITERRANEAN BEATS



my upcoming summer wedding has this year's vacation budget at a big fat ZERO. and it SUCKS. i love seattle but i need to get the fuck out of here. all i can do is imagine for a moment that i'm in some random little seaside town and this is how my typical day would go.......

wake up, eat my runny scrambled eggs, toast with nutella, and drink 2 cappuccino's. cue "breakfast" music.......

but breakfast wasn't enough to kick the hangover so we'll keep it mellow. cue "hangover recovery" music......

handbook - broken (space fidelity).........via handbook soundcloud


i'm finally to the beach, i get my chair all set up and head straight for the water. first swim of the morning and the hangover is officially gone. i plug in my shitty little purple fred meyer speakers to the ipod and cue "drinking on a beach in the sunshine" music......

letherette - yeah yeah love.........via bad luck city blog


the only problem with my day is the warm bottles of wine we brought. i manage to get a plastic bag full of ice from a cafe worker and i stash it in a hole i dug deep in the sand. its a make-shift beach cooler and it..... works........ perfect. the vino verde is now icccceeeee cold and its time to cue "delicious refreshing beverage in the hot hot sun" music......

the sun is getting low, i'm starting to get chilly when i get out of the water and my skin feels like leather. things have really mellowed out and its time to head to dinner. cue "eating dinner in damp swim trunks on a patio with a bunch of jolly drunken locals" music.......

ambassadeurs - duke red........via ambassadeurs soundcloud


after dinner we walk by an american bar and decide to head in. we're juuuust drunk enough to think its a good idea to follow a day of drinking wine in the sun with a shot of jose cuervo. its the best bad idea ever. the american bar has slowly turned into a discotheque and the strange electro music they're playing somehow sounds awesome. cue "when in rome" music......

u-tern - you don't know me........via u-tern soundcloud


i don't remember the rest of the night.........

i wake up the next day and do the exact same thing on a different beach. awesome.
