“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”
Here’s the latest and greatest from Foster the People.

This morning’s little gem is a cover of Pearl Jam’s, Just Breathe by Willie Nelson. Although it doesn’t deviate a lot from the original, it is very Willie Nelson with that country twang. Listen to it at Rolling Stone.
Wow, this is greatness. Steve Aoki, Kid Cudi, and Travis Barker put together this little party anthem. Enjoy.
This is such a fun song by the Las Vegas band, Imagine Dragons.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/25017978 height = 230]
