oh jesus, i am andy bernard.

So, what did you do late Thursday night? Put your passed out little Asian friend to bed at 8:30 p.m. and then stay up watching a cappella videos on YouTube? Oh and was your YouTube somehow in Spanish? That is so weird, because ME TOO!

Um, yeah. Maybe I’m becoming one of those creepy a cappella fanatics. Whatever, I just wrote a cover letter and writing a cover letter will drive a person to extremes like a cappella. My Upper East Side correspondent recommended that I listen to Straight No Chaser’s “Insomniac,” so obviously I listened to it on repeat for like a half hour. I will post a “video” that is really just audio with a TERRIBLE comic sans font title across the screen. Forgive me for that, but the audio is better than in other videos, and please know that I. HATE. COMIC. SANS.

Here’s another video of SNC (yeah, I’m using a cappella acronyms, OKAY?) singing Toto’s “Africa”:

I’ve added a new requirement for my future husband. Gentlemen: if any of you are tall and bearded and can cook, play the guitar, and sing, please email sixwordstochangetheworld@gmail.com, care of Mallory.

Finally, here’s Carrie Underwood singing the only other song I’ve ever truly loved in a cappella version. I couldn’t find an a cappella version on YouTube.

And yes, I know that 75% of you probably didn’t watch those videos, but posting them was more fun than editing my cover letter.

on healing, with pizza and music.

I had what you might call a “bad night” last night, if you were looking to make an understatement. Along with lots of pizza and the nice people who have decided to be my friends, part of what helped me survive the day is this song:

The song is called “Elevator Love Letter,” and it’s by a Canadian band named Stars. I swiped it from Dooce’s website earlier today, and I’ve been listening to it on repeat ever since. Strangely, I discovered that I have another one of Stars’ album in my iTunes, but I’ve never listened to it. Now I will, woo. 

Also, the cover of “Elevator Love Letter’s” album, Heart, is maybe the most wonderful photo I have ever seen:

Doesn’t that just make you absurdly happy? I want to be that girl.
