Here’s a Teaser

14, Apr 2014

Making trailers for things that aren’t movies seems to be hip these days, so I decided to gather up random footage of things in my brain and shove them all together into a minute-long clip. There is indeed a bit of one of the songs from the new EP here to listen to…once you get […]

This is Gaga working hard for it. This business is hard. All business is hard, but the music business is hard, especially for the indie DIY type that is trying to make a living while being a good business person and being an artist. Oftentimes this level of artist is doing everything…booking, practicing, writing, promoting, […]

I love musicians who have paid their dues, played the crap gigs to get to the good ones, are masters at their instrument, write their own songs, and push the limits of their genre. This is why I like a lot of singer-songwriters in many genres. This is why I love Lady Gaga. There is […]

If All Goes As Planned

13, Mar 2014

I will see Lady Gaga live tonight at SXSW. Color me thrilled!

Allow me to blog this topic again. Always…I am always self-justifying my pop music addiction (affliction?). Usually to myself, not even to the outside world. Perhaps people don’t “get” it, as they scroll past my Facebook updates and I have posted another Gaga video, and while I take the occasional “ew that is crap” comment […]

Putting Up Walls

20, Jan 2014

Here’s where I stand on the home decorating front…I like things to look good. I even have a fairly good aesthetic eye. I like clean lines, and I like having things around me that remind me of good times and people. I also like looking at things that inspire me. However, while I have part […]

New MCC

20, Jan 2014

As mentioned in Ask Jana below, Mary Chapin Carpenter has a new album out. I have not missed getting a physical copy of any of her albums, and I don’t plan to stop until they cease making CDs altogether. I stopped by Waterloo Records this week to pick one up. I’ll admit, I had to […]

Music I Liked in 2013

30, Dec 2013

These end of the year list things are always fun and popular, but I can’t keep track of a whole year, people. It’s hard to remember what is a 2013 release. The fact of the matter is my listening habits have shifted with the rest of the world and I listen to a lot of […]

O’Keeffe in Santa Fe

27, Dec 2013

It’s silly that I do not make it to Santa Fe and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum every time I am in New Mexico, because it’s a beautiful town and O’Keeffe is one of my favorite artists. She painted for over 60 years, lived to be 99, and her body of work is stunning. She was […]

Best Week Ever

11, Nov 2013

Whew. I have to admit, I’m gonna sleep a lot tonight. It’s been a whirlwind of adventure these past two weeks, with recording the new album, the Kickstarter, playing Rice Festival, and a bonus encounter with a hero of mine all wrapped into these past few days. I need a nap, but a satisfied, happy […]
