Listen to  Instrumental Dub

Trying something new Is oh so good for you When I first saw the word “Dub,” I assumed it was related to Dubstep and kind of kept my distance.  Then one fateful day I stumbled upon the Instrumental Dub genre in Pandora and pushed play. According to Wikipedia, who knows everything, Dub is a genre…

In the Corner of Your Room, Can you Hear Me?

Here’s 2 new graphic creations for you to enjoy. “She thought she was dead” is a line from a poem I wrote years ago.  I came across it the other day while cleaning out my jeep, if that tells you what kind of organized life I live.   Upon discovery, I fell in love with this line. …

Miss You, Liz

Navy Pier Snow Globe plays “My Kinda Town” I bought this snow globe 7 years ago when Liz took me to Chicago to visit her family.  Not a day passes that I do not think fondly of my dearest friend.

10 Guilty Pleasures

I’m all about sensations and feeling good. Below are my top ten guilty pleasures. What are YOURS? 10. Nachos. Processed cheese all the way! Shredded cheese is fine too but there’s just something about cheap movie theatre/7-11 nachos that hits the spot. I limit my consumption of nachos to once every few months. 9. Weed…

Feature: Mickey Avalon

I’m not easily impressed when it comes to music.  Most bands and artists sound like carbon copies of whatever is popular.  Rhianna, Nickelback, LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha: All on my list of overplayed crap that sounds the same.   Even most rap all sounds the same to me; talking about the same things in every song—their…

I seem to be, what I’m not… you see.

Listen up kiddies, in the 1950s,  there was a band called “The Platters” .  They  kicked ass. I’ve been a fan since childhood.    Songs like “Only you” “The Great Pretender” “My Prayer” “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes” “Harbor Lights” “Twilight Time” take me back to a place I’ve never even been.   I don’t know, the…

Nothing Much & Everything

“It’s the little things that mean so much.” I never believed that sentiment until time taught me a lesson.  I expected big, glorious moments out of life; and those moments either never came or presented themselves very modestly.  Many days were wasted waiting around for something cool to happen. Then, this past summer, my best…

Confession

I just downloaded Eminem’s new lp, “Recovery,” off Itunes.  As in, I bought the whole album all at once.  It’s a rare occurence.  Most usually, I pick and choose one or 2 songs from each artist.  Remember when you had to buy the entire cd at once?  For instance:  BON JOVI  /  NEW JERSEY. 1988,…

This, I believe

“Love means going first class.” –79sparrows Life is tricky.   I’m an idealist, but at the old age of 31, I’ve come to terms with certain inalienable truths.  No one but you can save yourself.   Eating late at night will make you fat.  Trust your gut above all else, it is your best friend who tells…

Art to Break Hearts, 7

“I fall in love a little everyday” Ah, another casual Friday is upon us.   I am off work today;   I took a long ride  in my Jeep and blasted Social D all morning.  The sun is out and we’re all still alive. The following pics are courtesy of the brilliant artists over at DeviantArt. These…
