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”

Little Talks. Lil’ bitty ones.

Full disclosure – when I give you a song, I don’t watch more than about 30 seconds of the music video. Mostly I just let it play in the background while I write about it. That is all. 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”

Perfect for my soundtrack. And Grey’s Anatomy’s.

At the end of last season I gave up on Grey’s Anatomy. I’ll probably go back to it eventually when its all on DVD just to see what happened after I left, but it just got to be too melodramatic for me. I got tired of watching a show where every week I couldn’t stopContinue reading “Perfect for my soundtrack. And Grey’s Anatomy’s.”

Her songs are the words you can’t say

Adele can do no wrong. If I hear a song of hers and don’t fall in love with almost immediately, well..that’s not ever gonna happen. But if it does, I will pay each of you $20. Current favorite: Set Fire To The Rain Seriously, just check out some of the lyrics… I let it fall,Continue reading “Her songs are the words you can’t say”

An unusual love story

Is it possible to marry a song? ‘Cause if it is, you can look forward to getting a save the date from me sometime here soon. I am IN LOVE – CAPITAL LETTERS SO IT’S SERIOUS – with this song. My absolute favorite part of the song is where he says: “Tell me now/where wasContinue reading “An unusual love story”

T minus 4 days

Y’all, it’s almost here. Part 2. Bourbon Boys reunite. I’ll be bringing you (as much of the) play-by-play as I can over on the Twitter thing and all the photos and as much detail as I can remember a few days (or a week, I make no promises) after the event. For now though, toContinue reading “T minus 4 days”
