Best Coast is The Best

Oh my gosh, you guys! I teared up after watching a music video yesterday (true story).

I've been a fan of Best Coast for about a year now, maybe since their "latest" album came out. It is F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. I think I even had some Best Coast on the "wedding mix-tape" last October.

And I watched their video, "Our Deal," last night on an episode of 120 minutes that I had DVR'd (yeah, that show is still around!).

I got so into the story that I teared up at the end and got really depressed. Like REALLY F-ING depressed. I tried watching something totally different right after, like Rachel Ray, but the sadness still clung on. For real! It sounds mega-stupid and pitiful, but it happened.

And now this song is all I can think of today. Sigh...


PS--The video has cameos by Donald Glover from Community, Miranda Cosgrove, and the main female role is played by Chloe Moretz, who was in Kick Ass and Let Me In. AND it was directed by Drew Barrymore (what???). Yeah! OMG, I am such a dork. I have to quit watching this video because it makes me tear up every time! LOL


  1. I'm not familiar with Best Coast or 120 Minutes but I did go watch the video and might I say "WOW". It's like that whole video came together right at the end as I read the "other" words spray painted on the building. It made me tear up. Walk away Jes, just like when you watched ET, walk away! lol Thank you for sharing that. It was really...(trying to think of a fitting description)...heavy!

  2. Just so you know, I've finished reading through your blogs (I read them on my phone but cannot comment via my phone) and it is about 45 minutes since I posted the comment here. First, I just love reading what you write. YOU keep me captivated. I giggle and feel like you are right here telling me the words I have just read. Weird, I know. Secondly, I can't get this video off my mind and now I must go watch it again. Kudo's to Drew Barrymore for directing such a strong message, even though that may not have been her intent. Kudo's to you for sharing it. I don't want to think about it ALL night though lol.
