I love love his music.  Such an unusual sound.  Appeals to the hipster in me.  Enjoy!










Music Monday – No Doubt

20 Aug

Okay, okay, I know they’re a pop band who is releasing their first album in 11 years.  But I forgot how fun their music was until I downloaded to my Ipod and began listening to them while I walk.  They’re not for everyone’s taste, but I admit to singing along.

Music Monday – Electric Soft Parade

I’m really digging them…enjoy!






Music Monday on a Sunday

29 Jul

I love this band – Blind Pilot.  And the sheer exuberance with which Kati dances and plays the drums makes me happy.  So it’s a Sunday…get up and dance!

My synapses have been on overtime lately.  I’m a whirling dervish of energy and excitement.  I’d like to blame it on my giving up gluten and potatoes (I know I know..nothing to live for), but there’s something brewing in the inner regions of my psyche that have been dormant for so long.  Truth is I feel so much more me lately.  I keep thinking I’m as me as I’ll ever be, but then there’s another layer I had forgotten I locked away in a closet.

I did give up gluten, which has meant more time in the kitchen cooking delicious items.  Look at those gluten free pizzas with mushrooms and carmelized onions.  So delicious too.

“I get lost in my mind..lost in my mind….lost…I get lost…loooooooooosssssssssst.”  Pardon me while I sing along to Head and the Heart singing Lost in My Mind.

I’m also addicted to upcycling and repurposing.  My kiddo said this is how all hoarders start out.  She may have a point, except I’m not one for things lying about.  Except as I glance over at my art table it’s covered in paint, sea glass, canvases and my coffee mug with a naked woman with swinging breasts.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s a picture.  Genius.

Maybe physically feel better and it’s rewiring my mental.  I haven’t been feeling out of sorts, but lately I feel downright childlike.  I have a wonderment and such an appetite for life.  Maybe I’m replacing my bread and potatoes hunger for another.  A hunger to live as if there is a tomorrow of promise.

Now listen to this song….I think you’ll feel the way I do:

I’d love to feel
Your hand touching mine
And tell me why
I must keep working on

Yes I’d give my life
To lay my head tonight on a bed
Of California stars

Music Mondays – Fun.

2 Jul

Yes, I’m jumping on the band wagon.  Their name says it all.  They are really just fun.




Music Mondays – Carrie Underwood does Coldplay – Fix You

25 Jun

I’m not a huge Coldplay fan, but this is simply one of my favorite songs lyrically and the build up and crescendo can’t be beat.

These lyrics are so hauntingly painful and beautiful:

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
