Small Black-Boy’s Life

Fall is creeping into my life earlier and earlier down in the south, despite the rising unbearable temperatures and half of the country still enjoying vacations. School seems to start too soon and the preparation for the year is always a big production. Have you noticed that school supplies are stocked in all of the…

Maybird-Big Sun Explosion

My Monday mood brings you the perfect tune this Tuesday. “Objects appear a little more clear when they’re nearer…..” Mondays can be hard. The reality of life sets in and the laughter and joy of the weekend subsides to the harshness of the start of a new work week. My mood today is a bit…

POP ETC-Running In Circles

Running around in crazy circles…..Life.     Guess I should recognize that all things move on. By now, you would think I would have learned a thing or two, but I am finding that my learning curve is constantly growing and changing. Why, you might ask? Well, I am just not ever going to be…

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper-Billions of Eyes

Do you ever want to buck the widespread customary idea of what brings happiness and peace? Is it a mansion filled with stuff? A place on the water that you can fish every day? A souffle that comes out all puffy and  perfect? A soft, cozy pillow to rest your head at night? Conversation that…

This song is stuck in my head. I am playing the lyric video again, just to listen again. What is it about some tunes that stay with you? Is it a formula? I think this song is pretty mainstream, but somehow it stays with me and I just can’t shake it. Therefore, I thought that…

Nude Beach-See My Way

How can I persuade you to read my blog and listen to the music? I know my site is growing by leaps and bounds, but some days are better than others and I need help in boosting it. Right? I just read a study in Forbes that fascinated me. It talked about the power of…

Canon Logic-IBOK

What has happened lately? I have bought more get well cards and sympathy cards than birthday cards. It seems as if everyone I know has been touched by the tragedy of pain or loss. I am speechless and don’t really know how to react except to say, I am so sorry. And, I am, truly…

New Music-Real Estate- Talking Backwards

Waiting for new music and patience isn’t my strong suit. But, for now, my waiting can go temporarily on hold due to Real Estate releasing a new song which I only just discovered in the wee hours of the night. Yes, I have listened to it over and over since. Their new album, Atlas which…

Quit Yer Bellyaching and Just Watch….You’re Welcome

I found this sweet relief from a new twitter follower (thanks guys!). This video saved my life this very cold morning in the deep South. With only 9〫   at mid-morning, I was in desperate need for a little warmth and a reminder that this weather is only temporary. Thank you, Sensual Harassment, for this great…
