Today has been Moss..tly bad, but tomorrow will be better! (... eh, I tried.)

Just generally check this guy out. He just does the wildest stuff, like building a mini-village for him to perform a song in, or going around the Bulgarian countryside, collecting sounds.

And for those of you on the opposite side of the "metaphor for how I'm feeling today" spectrum, who've chosen "desert wasteland" instead of "floatie-less existence in the sea, and there are definitely sharks everywhere" ... quench your thirst here.

(No but actually, #parchedthroats #desertlyf has anyone else been thirsty all day?)

Sweat, tears, blood -- all things that go into studying. Stuttering -- symptom of not having slept in a few days. Also hallucinating. That one too. #ghosts #handsomeghosts

... UGH these are all such stretches, I'm cringing so hard, I wish I hadn't gone down this esoteric "titles-mimic-day" path. Backing up BEEP BEEP BEEP

(And yes, I'm aware that neither Frank Ocean nor Coldplay nor Ben Howard happen to be hipster... Additionally, I'm aware of the inherent UNHIPSTERITUDEYNESS of posting to BUZZFEED: i.v. as it is of all things mainstream... Additionally I should note that in a previous iteration of this article, I published these 22 songs with the title "19 Chill Hipster Songs..." ... We all make mistakes.. maybe I more than most. See I've made 3 mistakes in like 30 minutes. You're already having a better day.)
