Monday Morning Tunes: MoZella

Not to be confused with the browser Mozilla, MoZella is pure sultry soul, mixed with jazz and delightfully minimally-produced pop, wrapped in a sweet and sometimes lovesick introspection.

But what’s soul without desperate, unrelenting love?

I came across MoZella on accident, as is the case with most of the music that I end up going back to again and again.

The song “Light Years Away” is on one of the soundtracks of the old WB series One Tree Hill, which I was making my way through when I heard it for the first time.

Whether or not you were a fan of the show when it was on (I admittedly have notoriously cheesy taste in television) it had a very strong musical presence; both in the music that appeared in the show, and its revolving music-centric plot, musician cast members, and characters pursuing careers in the music industry. Music was such a big part of One Tree Hill that not only did a few different soundtracks come out for the show, but a website exists dedicated solely to every song that ever played during the show, organized by episode, season, and musical artist. It is still up and running, and I reference it frequently for music recommendations.

It’s ironic that I first stumbled upon MoZella kinda-sorta through television, given the fact that in 2005, her music was able to reach millions of television viewers when Mercedes-Benz featured her song “Amazed” in one of their ad campaigns. Her songs have also appeared in television ad campaigns for Verizon, Amazon Kindle, and Nissan. Television agrees with MoZella.

Wordless Wednesday: Thanks, Hill’s Science Diet

Several weeks ago, I won a really great giveaway over at Create With Joy for a box full of cat food and treats from Hill’s Science Diet. With a 5-cat household, I am always trolling for pet giveaways. I enter a lot of them, and with that many cats, I’m sure you can understand my excitement over winning one. Obviously, I was not the only one so, super excited.

Devin and Vincent Hills Science Diet

My big box of kitty goodies arrived last week. Within one afternoon of receiving the box, cutting the tape open, and setting it aside,  my two oldest cats, Devin and Vincent, took it upon themselves to flip the box over, rip open the bag of cat food, and proceed to take turns shoving their heads inside the hole they created.

I also feel the need to point out here that at this time, all of their food bowls were completely full. The logic of cats.

Thanks, Create With Joy and Hill’s Science Diet!

Though not necessary, I feel compelled to share that because I won a giveaway, I was under absolutely no commitment to mention Hill’s on Woman Tribune, and had no intentions of doing so, but these pictures were just too perfect not to share.
