Watching a cat eat. This is Westley he is new!
My epic breakup and Parliament Funkadelic AKA Pfunk story
My Life Is Calling
I just found a great new interview with my favorite musician alive, Jon Brion http://www.jonbrion.net/blog/off-camera-24-jon-brion/ He talked about how he used to flunk everything in school because he absolutely knew without a shadow of a doubt that he would grow up and be a musician.

Looking for someone who loves long walks on the beach

Killed Twice by Jackie Wilson
I was supposed to have a Match.com date for the first time since Black Swan came out, but then I sent her the following video and she canceled. Am I the only one crazy enough to think that Dexy’s Midnight Runners doing Van Morrison’s Jackie Wilson Said (I’m in Heaven when You Smile) is incredibly […]
