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…

On trainwrecks and twerking

So, I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that you either watched the VMAs on Sunday or heard about them Monday and possibly have an opinion. Of course, the runaway performance of the evening was Miley Cyrus. Should we be surprised? I mean, c’mon, this is MTV and the 10th anniversary…

And then a playlist just happened

I was just minding my own business. And then I just kind of started doing the “la la la la la la la la la la-la” that starts “Wild World” and then I’m playing it and then it’s making me think of other songs and then voila! I tripped on a playlist. So here it…

but my heart’s of gold… I had to run away high… so I wouldn’t come home low… What do you think when someone asks you, “who do you think you are?” Because that’s the little ditty that always pops into my head. I just love this question. Who am I? Musically, speaking, I mean. Because…

Sunday Scoop: Friday Six Pack Revealed

The Fiver is all gone … all that’s left is the scoop! Yay! Thanks for playing. I do so love a Friday Fiver. Find some songs you never heard before, rediscover some you had forgotten about, learn about musical places you NEVER WANT TO VISIT AGAIN! Yep, that’s what it’s all about. Now, without further…

Behind the Fiver.

So what was all that noise about? Without further ado, the faces behind the fiver. Song #1: If You Could Read My Mind (Gordon Lightfoot). Seriously. Is there another voice that rivals Gordon Lightfoot? For my money, he can break it down. This is a song that sticks to your ribs after you hear it,…

Dave Grohl

This post should probably be prefaced with a warning: sometimes, I have a very overactive imagination. Okay, please proceed.

Details – the reveal

Here goes nothin’ … Track 1: Against Me, New Wave Against Me! is a Florida punk band that’s been around for a while but never has seemed to gain traction. I can’t remember where I heard of them. This is from their 2007 release of the same name, and I am enamored of every song…
