SOTD: Oren Lavie, "Her Morning Elegance"

Why it's song of the day:

I should have gotten a job this summer. But after a year working in what may have been the absolute worst work environment in the history of not-for-profit theatre, I got home in late June and was just too burned out and bitter to look for any kind of work right away. And then we went to the mountains. And then I babysat a few times. And then I went to Indiana for a few days. And now here it is, the second week in August (at least I think it is, I honestly couldn't tell you the day-- I've stopped counting those) and I am still in my pajamas at 2:30 in the afternoon, contemplating the fact that I may be at a potential risk for bed sores.

But this video makes staying in bed all day look glamorous-- adventurous, even. So I am going to wallow in my laziness for one more day... or week.. or month.. ah, who's counting.

Why you should love it:

Pretty song. Pretty video. The usual maxim applies: what's not to love?


  1. I work for a non profit theatre company too. I have a had a summer seriously lacking in fun. I am remeding this by going to las vegas next week! I've also been seeking out a new theatre for a change in scenery. Any chance you would reveal the one you working at as a place to avoid? Good luck at Seatle Rep. The Director of Education there is awesome!

  2. I remember seeing this video a bit ago and loved it.

    I clicked on your playlist thing and ive been obsessed with those songs (id never heard them before). that site with your playlist is on my web favorites.

  3. Single Gal: I'll give you a hint. There's a motto in DC nonprofit theatres: "friends don't let friends work at ____" You fill in the blank ;)
