I like it so check it out: SEPTEMBER

Otherwise known as my monthly wrap up of the stuff I’ve read, watched, and listened to that’s worth sharing. A post that has only been made possible since I sold my cafe a couple of months ago and no longer collapse from exhaustion by nine every night. READ:

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: HOLE

Say the name Courtney Love and one thing is certain: people either love her or hate her. I’ve definitely loved her more than I’ve hated her, but if I’m being honest the thought of ever meeting her scares the shit out of me. One thing I do know is that she was a huge part of a ...

“But only if you’re lucky now…”

“I don’t remember were we wild and young All that faded into memory I feel like somebody I don’t know Are we really who we used to be Am I really who I was…” More than the song of the day, this is the earworm that has crawled into my head and played on a ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: PIXIES

The Pixies. {Although they seem to have dropped the word The at some point when I wasn’t paying attention, playing havoc with my iTunes library.} Probably the very first “cool” and “credible” band that would stand the test of time that I ever liked. Thanks in large part to a small window of time where ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: BLONDIE

It’s one of my earliest memories. This blonde creature, looking cool in ways five year old me couldn’t even begin to fathom let alone explain. I didn’t know who she was or what she did, but images like this were some of the first to get an impression on me, and was probably my first ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: SONIC YOUTH

First off: I do not know every song or album ever released by this band. Fact nonetheless: I love the shit out of them. Going way back to about ’91 I became aware of this cool {with a capital K} band who had this whole too-cool-for-every-fucking-thing vibe happening. They were not that pretentious kind of ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: THE DANDY WARHOLS

There are a few bands I very reluctantly adopted. Bands that, for whatever reason, I didn’t want to like. Usually my husband loved them and played their music so much that I could take no more. Eventually at some stage that band would tour and I would, somewhat half heartedly, follow my husband along to ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: POP CHICKS OF THE 80’s

So I think I’ve mentioned that I’m a sucker for a one hit wonder. And back in the 80’s there were some real gems, and it’s probably not surprising that some of the ones I still love today come from the ladies of that time. So without further ado here are some of my all ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: TAYLOR SWIFT

The iPod doesn’t lie my friends, and since Ms Swift features in at least half the songs on my Top 25 playlist {based on number of plays}, I figure she deserves a Sunday Sessions post. Have I been listening to her music for very long? No, only since she released 1989. Have I been playing ...

Sunday sessions, soundtrack to my life: THE DOORS

Like many people my age I first started getting into the music of The Doors in the very early 90’s, when there seemed to be a resurgence in it’s popularity. It may well have been popular all along {after all what did I know? I was listening to the Grease soundtrack most of the 80’s}, ...
