Kim is a music and movie loving mama to two teen boys living in a tiny town in the south. While she loves all kinds of music (especially the hair bands, and all that OTHER cheesy 80s stuff, too!), her heart truly belongs to Metal and Outlaw Country. Her love of music began at an early age. For as long as she can remember, her parents always had music playing as a background to just about any and every family activity. And, long before MTV, she can vividly recall her Dad waking her up so she could watch The Midnight Special on Friday nights. Her fascination with the darker side of music began around age 7, when the babysitter's kid introduced her to Kiss. Much to her mother's chagrin, that was that. It's been a strange, fun ride ever since!

2013 in review: the albums

Hi. Kim peeking in here for a quick minute for an end-of-year review of sorts – featuring (some of) my favorite album releases of the year. 2013 was a great year for music, so this is by no means a complete list. There were SO MANY new releases by favorite artists, and new releases that…

Let’s see if we can’t get the week started off right

with a little bit of music on this Monday! While I recover from exhaustion and car trouble, I’m handing the reigns off to CC on this one……

Wanna go for a ride?

Well, then hop in, buckle your seat belts, and hang on! This week’s Music Monday theme is “songs about cars” and we could not be more excited. The Mamas LOVE songs about cars! Who will YOU be riding shotgun with?

This is what happens

When I go on a work spree, working doubles like a boss (#getthatmoney!): I almost forget to pull the Mamas into this week’s Music Monday post. Since it’s freebie week, and we’re working and getting our kidlets ready for the upcoming school year, hosting family, visiting family and generally buzzing about like busy little bees,…

Whee! We’re back, and ready to make a splash!

Hello! Kim here. You may or may not remember me, so I’ll be sure to get a bio up soon. In the meantime, I’ve come to deliver some summertime/water/splish-splash-themed amazingness via the Monday’s Music Moves Me theme at Dolly’s! When this site fell dormant a while back, I came across several Music Monday bloghops, and…

He’s baaaacckk……

So, did everyone have a great Mother’s Day? I sure did, and hope that the rest of you lovely music-loving mamas out there did, as well! I had a day of doing nothing but watching what I wanted on tv, window shopping online, and, later that evening, seeing Dark Shadows with my oldest son and…

Whatever happened to….(4)

Happy New Year, folks!   “Whatever Happened To….” Wednesday took a bit of a breather over the holidays, but I am determined to keep up a little bit better in the coming year!

2011: It was a good year for concerts.

While most of you are busy de-Christmas-ing your homes (My tree is staying up till at least mid-January, since I love the lights!), getting organized, and thinking about what you’ll do in the coming year – or at least where you’ll go/what you’ll wear to ring in 2012 tomorrow night – I am taking a…

Whatever happened to….(3)

Hello, there! You may have noticed that “Whatever happened to….” Wednesday took a little vacation. That was not intended, but between my retail job kicking off our busiest season on Black Friday, and me personally battling a RAGING sinus infection (one that is *still* with me, and appears to still kick my ass every now…

Whatever happened to…. (2)

Hello, all! Kim here again. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on last week’s “Whatever happened to….” featuring The Prodigy! I’m back this week with another singer from the 90s. Let’s see if you remember her… Meredith Brooks is undoubtedly best known for her hit single “Bitch,” from 1997. That track much sums…
