Mood music

First of all, not that kind so get your mind out of the gutter. Back in the day, I used to make mixed CDs like it was my job. They reflected my mood at the time and all I can say looking back is “Why wasn’t I diagnosed as clinically depressed years earlier?” Oh, andContinue reading “Mood music”

#TBT Tunes: Double trouble

I’m writing this whilst suffering from insomnia. But posting it later – the magic of technology. But what better way to entertain yourself when probably everyone else is asleep than to go through old CDs and laugh at your taste in music 10 or more years ago? Yeah, so, we already revisited my old mixesContinue reading “#TBT Tunes: Double trouble”

#TBT Tunes

After the last monstrosity, I honestly don’t know what to expect on this one. Your guess is as good as mine. So..here we go. Track 1: “I Learned That From You,” Sara Evans Obviously still in the depression. I’d definitely just been broken up with. ‘Cause that’s when I WORE THIS SONG OUT. Track 2:Continue reading “#TBT Tunes”

Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn

Did you feel a change in the atmosphere Tuesday? Like the world got a little better and colors were brighter and while life might still have been kicking your ass, at least it was wearing slippers instead of steel-toed boots? It’s on account of The Album. Mumford’s new one, DUH. They played some of thisContinue reading “Keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn”

Unless it’s OK Go, because those have the tendency to be RI-DONK. This one is weird asContinue reading “Little Talks. Lil’ bitty ones.”

Now what do I do?

The Olympics are over, you all. We have to wait four more years. And don’t even say “Oh, but there’s winter games,” because those don’t even come close. Ice skating is not as fun as gymnastics to watch and while I’ll tune in for some skiing, it’s no swimming and diving.. And it’s because ofContinue reading “Now what do I do?”

So sweet I got a toothache

I’m a fan of sweet little love songs. Yes, I love the ballads and the hardcore Adele-type love stuff, but my favorite songs about the L-word are more of the Jason Mraz, “I’m Yours” type. Cutesy stuff and whatnot. With my generally tough exterior, who’d have guessed, right? Shh. So it’s actually because of JasonContinue reading “So sweet I got a toothache”
