Monthly Mixtape: Powder Room and Power Chord

Monthly Mixtape: Powder Room and Power Chord

AUGUST. I mean, August! I mean, August. I mean, AUGUST. I’ve been wanting to make you this mixtape foreeeeeverrrrr. (Sandlot style) And I find it rather appropriate that I’m sharing it on the heels of a refreshing, inspiring, spirit (and spirits) lifting weekend with a solid group of besties. (minus two sorely-missed faces.) I also […]

That means 24 playlists. Plus today’s mix which makes 25! (I’m good at math.) I’m going to keep this super short, because I know […]

JUNE IS BUSTING OUT ALL OVERRRRR. And by that I mean it’s pouring rain. But I’ll take it! Because in about a month, we gon’ be dry and barren and humid and icky and nasty and sweaty and dead grassy and whiney and weedy and no. Remember in old movies how June was always THE […]

Monthly Mixtape : Hear the Rainbow

Is it just Kansas City, or is it a non-stop Niagara soak sitch for you, too? Not that I’m complaining! I L O V E rain. Sosososososomuch. Love it like something psycho. But. It’s starting to cramp my steeeez, man. And my kids’ steezes. And my house painters’ steezes. And my sandal’s steezes. And I’ll […]

Monthly Mixtape: Sprang in Your Thang

19 days until spraaaaaaang! But I’m not excited or anything. Even if it’s been (for us) the MILDEST winter on record (in KC), with two jokes of a snow (here in my town), and temperatures that have mimicked spring (in Kansas City) for nearly a month now (for me in my town), I’m still pretending […]

Monthly Mixtape: Tonight Tonight Tonight

We won’t even talk about how January disappeared faster than a sack of bullets. We also won’t even talk about what that sentence even meant just now.       (photo via the interflex, but I tweaked it a little, because I just can’t let things lie.) Have you ever thought about HOW MANY SONGS have the […]

Monthly Mixtape: Name That Movie

Movie kiddos

Lights..! Camera..! Favorite mixtape ever..! (p.s. That’s an old school movie projector toy in Will’s hand. He wasn’t wanting to be my director, though, so- no milk for him!) MOVIES. Favorite thing ever. They take us away to another place, another time, another era, another land. For roughly 90 minutes, we get to experience life […]

Fiiiiiiinally. I have an excuse! You see, it all started on a hot, sticky day in August of 1976, when I was born. Wait, that’s a different story. I’m really, really late on getting you a Monthly Mixtape. But this is what happened! I couldn’t decide on a theme. Which is stupid because it’s December, […]

Monthly Mixtape: Embers and Ashes

Noveeeeeemmmmberrrrrrrr. HOW? How. I trust you’re all surviving your candy coma? How did last night go? Are you sleeping in? Spazzing out? Both? Neither? Leave you alone? The gremlins went as Mary Poppins and Bert, as it’s been my life for the last two years. They are OBSESSED with the movie. Certifiably loony for it. […]
