The Death of You and Me (and Liam and Noel)

Well, it’s here…the long awaited new song from Noel Gallagher. (You remember him, right?  The brother from the now defunct British band Oasis that wasn’t Liam?) Y’see, the Gallagher boys had a falling out, with smashed guitars and everything, which effectively put the kibosh on the band continuing together. So, Liam went off with some…

She will be missed

I woke up this morning to the news that Amy Winehouse had been found dead in her London home.  Although I haven’t seen any official reports as to the cause of death, as a long time fan of Winehouse (and someone who has picked her for the dead pool game the past two years), I…

Soul, pop, electronica and alternative are represented, to name a few. I must say I prefer “Jim” from 2008 to any of the…

Thug life and motherhood?!

There is something about the rap of the early 90’s that makes me smile inside and out, makes me bob my head to the beat, and makes me miss you way too baggy Dickies and Puma’s….and part of me feels compelled to throw up gang signs but I manage to resist the urge. I prefer…

GLEE-ful sounds?

Hello. My name is Lara. I am a Gleek. {Hello, Lara} They had me at the “L”. I remember thinking to myself, when the teasers for Glee started popping up in the summer of 09′, “Squee a show for us dorks!”. Seeing-as-how there hasn’t been a decent Trek in years I was sort of stoked….
