When BoomBoomChik’s writers Jemex and Radio Morillo aren’t blogging, tweeting, Facebooking and working 9-5, they are somewhere reviewing, interviewing, or going through submissions. After all that’s done, they get inspired and make music.

That happened to me last night post England v Germany and Argentina v Mexico. Germany and Argentina won (YAY!) all but solidifying my theory that the two of them will be facing off in the final match of the World Cup. I didn’t mourn the loss of a team – though team USA was a loss – so I didn’t have to go through the motions of feeling failed or cheated.

It was super hot in my aunt’s apartment yesterday and what does one do in the sweltering heat? Chill out and listen to chill music. Or sing chill music while messing around with webcam settings. When that happens, you get a song cover of Corinne Bailey Rae‘s 2006 hit “Like a Star” that looks as if it were directed by the makers of Etch-n-Sketch, which is what happened to me.

There will always be tedious busy work but there will always be songs to cover and sites like YouTube to post them on. Amen for chill, sweltering hot Sunday afternoons.
