Macklemore | Friday Obsessions

I have a confession. I am head over heels for a man who isn’t my husband.

His name is Macklemore.

My sister shared his NPR Tiny Desk Concert video on her Facebook page a few months ago, and I have been hooked ever since.

His hair, his style, his smile, his aura, everything is pure happiness and love. In the course of this video, you’ll laugh, cry, get down, and get the urge to move will shoot out from somewhere deep inside your belleh through every limb and extremity. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a hip hop artist speak so deeply on topics like equality in “Same Love”, nor have I ever heard a hook as bad (in a good way) as on “Thrift Shop.”

Thanks to that one, and the clean version I found on Spotify, I now have baby bear saying “Popping taaaaags.” Baller.

Seriously, if you have somehow escaped hearing about Macklemore until now, do not skip this video. Required viewing.

Since I first saw this, Macklemore has shot up to #1 on iTunes and he is EVERYWHERE. In my morning blog reading, I even noticed Young House Love (swoon) has a Thrift Shop Challenge today!

Happy a happy Friday, y’all, it’s going to be a frigid and busy one for me!
