Straight out of high school with barely any money in your pocket and a head full of dreams, you go on road trip to Los Angeles with Lucy Wagner. You’re not totally sure if you’re a girl OR a woman, but you’ll have a lot of time to think about that in the future. You could possibly be a dog, so don’t rule out that possibility. Just saying! So hop into your beat-up Buick Skylark, pick up a few hitchhikers (who may or may not have been in jail before), and sing along to these songs to wow the crowd at the karaoke bar.
Hello, you. June’s theme will be LONGING. Unlike more-acute forms of desire like desperation or need, longing is a sweet ache—more pining for something than dying for it. It’s nostalgia, homesickness, boredom, a persistent feeling of lack, dreaming of escape/the future. It’s summer: summer homes & cottages, stuffy summer bedrooms, sun-bleached memories of summers past. The shadow of September that hangs over June. It’s secret hangouts, crushes, unrequited love. Send what you’ve got here, and thanks. ♥
