I'm a bit behind sharing the female artists that I deeply admire. It was a fun project, and transcends into March, seeing as it's womyn HERstory month. Oh yeah, I went there. So without further ado... Feb. 22: Billie Holiday It's only been recently that I've learned to truly appreciate Holiday's music. My poor brain … Continue reading Women Crushin’…week 4
Each month this year I will pick a topic of gratitude and get specific. In February, it was women artists that I adore. Women who have made an impact in the arts, who have a story to tell against all odds, and put out breathtaking work of all media. Who are some of your favorites? … Continue reading Women Artists I Adore: Week 3
Each month this year, I am getting specific with my gratitude. It's harder than I thought! In January, I focused on hygge-based gratitude. Things that made me cozy and happy, and wouldn't you know it, each of the 31 items were pure luxuries that I hadn't really considered luxuries (warm socks, dinner by candlelight...because we … Continue reading February Gratitude: Artists I Adore, Week 1
Some of my favorite things to listen to and watch around the holidays weren't created to be a holiday genre. For example, I got Radiohead's THE BENDS on Christmas Eve in, oh, 1996 maybe, and even though it has nothing to do with Christmas, almost every time I listen to it, aside from making my … Continue reading A Very Radiohead Christmas
This was the year I finally caught up on books and movies (well, as much as one can catch up). With little kids, it was harder for me to fulfill my reading and viewing goals, but this year I did! Huzzah! Here are the tops in my book: MOVIES (my list of everything I saw … Continue reading End of Year Best Of…
My whole life I've had a string of irrational fears and worries. There's the fear of doctors, that required valium during regular check up visits; there's the fear of messing up someone's name, even though I know 100% that the person I'm speaking with is in fact, named the name I'm thinking of; I'm horrifically … Continue reading The Only Thing to Fear…is EVERYTHING
November needs a do-over for me. I only read one book, didn't see any movies, didn't really seek new music or art...I'm not exactly sure what I did to fill my days, really. I'm overcompensating in December, and just picked up about 30 books from the library. Young adult fiction, picture books, photography books, art … Continue reading Pop Culture Catch Up: Really Catching Up
There was a time in my life when Saturday nights were for pub crawls and parties*, but now they're for watching Austin City Limits (Vampire Weekend!) and playing with watercolors. *No, there was never a time in my life like that. But this is my blog, I can do what I want, say what I want.

Watching: As many movies as I can, specifically at The Moxie. I love love loved IN A WORLD. So original, funny, charming, and I actually had to hold myself back from clapping (I hate it when people applaud in the movies. THE ACTORS CAN'T HEAR YOU!). Go see it! I also saw recently PRINCE AVALANCHE. … Continue reading Pop Culture Catch Up – October
