This year, I am loving some old favorites. There is something to be said for the emotions, that warm nostalgic glow that is evoked when a song has imprinted on you year after year. Part of the magic of the holidays is the memories and the tradition. For me, I still get excited and sit […]
A few years ago, I went to my first Paul McCartney concert. It was an amazing night. However, my seats weren’t so great, so I promised myself that if the opportunity ever presented itself again, I would splurge and buy the best tickets that I could get. So, for the recent Tampa show (One on […]
… go and seize it.
Sunshine, perfect Spring weather, an empty beach, butterflies, and blue skies. It was a good weekend. “And a long-forgotten fairytale is in your eyes again and I’m caught inside a dream world where the colors are too intense and nothing is making sense…” – “Long-Forgotten Fairytale”, The Magnetic Fields And here are a few of my […]

For this year’s Halloween mix, I put together a soundtrack to match my Bride of Frankenstein costume. There was an accident, some electricity, and some really confusing monster love. Also, there is some great, spooky music for Halloween hauntings. Elefant – Black Magic Show (Introduction) The Killers – Midnight Show The Rakes – […]
I put this mix together a month ago. Never thought it sounded right until I listened to it yesterday. The intro is a mesh of lyrics from the songs; I didn’t feel like writing my story, so I used them to create one. I’ve got a thick tongue, brimming with the words that go unsung. It […]
