Memorial Day 2012 Mixmas

I know the holiday is still a week away. But this is my agreed-on blog day this month. So, I guess this gives y'all an advance week to figure out your favorite songs before the barbecues start. Fwiw, this a great mix of songs. The point of gathering songs for this mix is to help […]

Oh, this video is really good!

Thursday playlist: TV and Music we're digging lately

A few of our favorite things: 1.) Adventure Time. It's now in its 3rd season on Cartoon Network. There's a little 7 year old we know who started watching it recently. And suddenly his parents were as eager as he was to catch up on all the old episodes. A lovely 21 year old house […]

Electric Youth) is from the movie Drive. I could not stop playing this song every day, ten times a day, […]
