Absolution Calling

Let me tell you a little fact about myself: I love Incubus. I have been a fan ever since I saw their video for “Drive” on a VH1 music video countdown when I was 11. My brother gave me their album Morning View for Christmas that year, and thirteen years later, that album title inspired the name of this blog. And now they’re coming out with a new song tomorrow.

No matter how much I start to love other bands and new music, Incubus will always be my “If I were stuck on a desert island and could only listen to one band” choice. Their lyrics inspire my writing, and Brandon Boyd is still the most beautiful person I have ever seen.

If you’re unfamiliar with Incubus, I recommend listening to Wish You Were Here or Stellar.

    I used to like incubus a lot as well– somewhere in the burrows of time (or a box) there’s a picture of spaz high school me in cordoroys, Chuck taylors, and an incubus shirt. Brandon was a cutie. Love the ensemble. Polka dots walk the line between cute and classy.

    • Is it possible to like you more? Also, replace the corduroys with ripped jeans and you have my high school wardrobe. I would have never left you alone if we went to the same school.

    I have Drive on my playlist. Dad and I love that song.

    • I should take Dad to one of their concerts. He would really enjoy it.

  • Love your outfit, especially the top and coat.

  • Beautiful outfit! I like Wish You were Here best. Maybe I’ll put it in one of my books inspired by you! I’m always looking for songs for the romances of my dark characters.

    • Oh, Wish You Were Here is such a good choice. Which reminds me that I need to read one of your books! Dark characters are what I live for.
