These Important Years

So, you’ve probably been wondering where the hell I am, as normally I don’t take a shit without blogging about. I alluded to it in an earlier post, but we have our house under contract and are moving. I haven’t really had time to digest what that means for us, but I do know that I am having some serious… Read more →

Pooped Out

I am so tired. Todd and I went to the EARL last night after his book club at Flatiron. Anna Kramer opened, and I loved her! Got this video of a new Band of Horses song they say they hadn’t played before. Me likey. Their whole show was really great – I was impressed. I think they were much better… Read more →

All Hallows Eve

Halloween was ultra fun. We carved the pumpkin (yes, I am a total slacker and waited till the last minute) and then went and had pizza at Grant Central. After that, we walked around East Atlanta Village for the Eav-O-Ween celebration.All of the shop owners hand out candy to the local kids, and the people-watching is pretty fun. The kids… Read more →

The Dogwood Shuffle

I’ve seen this around the web a few times before. You open ITunes, put every bit of music you own on Shuffle, and then you have to post the first five songs that play for everyone to see.

She is putting a playlist together for her wedding, and was looking for suggestions. Since then, I have been creating the wedding dance playlist of the century; 12 hours of butt-shaking goodness,… Read more →

About an Old Friend

There’s a pretty cool article in today’s New York Times, written by Aimee Mann, about “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” This weekend is the 40th anniversary of the release of the album; It came out about five years before I was released. The interesting thing about the article is that she reminded me of what I thought of the… Read more →

This Must Be The Place

I was reading the New York Times online yesterday morning, and came across a pretty long article on the band Arcade Fire, whom I love. They have a new album out, er . . . coming out tomorrow, officer, I swear I never illegally downloaded any of it already, cross my heart and hope to die. The new album, Neon… Read more →
