i think i'll look back on 2011 as the year i was made bold by a love of music and the weight of a camera against my chest:

noah&thewhale

beirut2

beirut1

johnny flynn 6




these are the songs that will tell the story of this year. these are the songs i carry in me. these are the songs that will remind me of my first-ever-concert in boston, the long cab-ride to brooklyn, how music marks time and makes circles, of all the things i learned in chicago this summer.

i will remember what song i was listening to when i took the subway downtown to face my greatest fear, my greatest love, to mark the passage of could-have-been lives.

it will be the beginning of the soundtrack for when i finally get around to making my own cameron crowe coming of age film.

this past year was magic. heartbreaking and difficult and monumental and heaven-sent in so many ways. i may not yet have the words to adequately sum it all up, and my photos may not do it justice, so until i take the time to hash it all out, i offer up these melodies...

such a beautiful list. i've seen ptm do a live show for a small amount of people in utah before their big show that night. amazing. jay may? beautiful voice. avett brothers, love them. the stars are amazing. found them off the o.c. series years ago.

we have similar music tastes and i think this is a great way to share the way your year went.
