I haven't collected anything since I was a tween, and I fell in love with keychains. Now I'm adult, and I've found something to collect: Vinylmation. There's just something about this Mickey Mouse-shaped canvas that I can't resist.
It's the very first remix/remake showdown. I have so many remakes and cover songs in my music library I decided it was time to put them head-to-head to see which one comes out the winner. This first installment has The Carpenter's squaring off against Sonic Youth. Know what the song is?
I think I'm going to have to go on at least one more cruise before I can fully form an opinion on whether I like them a lot or not. We had a great time on our first cruise, but the water was so rough I had a tough time getting out of the cabin.
Reaching out. It can be difficult, especially when you are the one who screwed things up by acting like an asshat. We're not talking a little tiff. We're talking about not speaking to your best friend for over a decade. This is part 1 of my tale on reaching out to my best friend from high school and into my 20's.
I think that a personal theme song is not a static song, never meant to change. I mean, we're not the same person at 35 that we were at 25, or 15. Instead, a personal theme song changes as we change and move forward with our lives. The theme some of a teenager in love will be vastly different than the theme song for that same person, 20 years later and married with two kids. Ah yes, the theme song of a work-at-home wife and mother of two.
Don't tell anyone, but I do like a good meme. It gives me an opportunity to talk mostly about myself, and I can pretend that someone out there cares. I try not to go for the basic meme, (I guess I'm a meme snob) but instead I like 'em a little more unusual. So today I bring you the Who, What, Why, Where, When and Would meme. Because there's a little reporter inside us all.
