MAAAAAARCH! (I get excited about things.) At last, I’m seeing longer strands of 60s in the extended forecast. Windows have been open twice in the last seven days. Beers were consumed on the front porch over the weekend. To-do lists of seeds to plant and leaves to rake and stains for the patio table and […]

How was January five and a half months long just now? None the less, we’re cruising into February and I’ve got some tuuuuunes for ya! And it’s a THEME. You know how I like a good theme. My friend Trisha asked me a while back, “Are you ever going to create a country mixtape?” Well, […]

Hiiiiiiiiii hello there I’m still alive. Happy December! I still cannot understand how this happened. But here we are. At Christmastime. And I’ve got TUNES, BRAH. Is it a Christmas mixtape? I mean . . . yeah. In places. But! It’s more cozy snuggly wintery snowy festive warming hygge-y than anything. Not every song on […]

Monthly Mixtape: Ivory Keys and Falling Leaves / Bev Cooks

Novembeeeeer! I can’t even talk about it. This garden? (yet I’m going to talk about it.) All ripped out and bagged. The planters are all empty. The hanging ferns are toast as well. The sofa and dining chair pillows have all become slides for the basement stairs and fort anchors for the gremlins, and wool […]

Although I do think I’m actually eating a croissant here. TANT PIS, LE GARS. At last! Your Francaaaais mixtape. I will confess, my knowledge of French music was actually pretty limited before putting this playlist together. Outside of Stereolab, the Amélie soundtrack and Brigitte Bardot, I was jumping in cold! Well, cool. I know the […]

August! Yeah it completely freaks me out, too. The gremlins start KIN-DER-GAR-TEN in 15 minutes, the ’embers are right around the corner, and some of my spring potted plants are expectedly crispy on the unders. Tiiiime keeps on tickin’ tickin’, into the fuuutuuuuure. STOP IT. However, it’s my birthday month, so I refuse to get […]

April! About. frickin’. time. Not that I’m trying to wish life away. My jowls are squeezing the reins of time continuum like DUUUUUUUUDE CHIIIIILL. But the rest of me is super pumped to see April. First of all, today’s our anniversary! Wedding. 14 years. So insane. Secondly, I pick up kindergarten enrollment packs today and […]

Happy February! …five days in. And don’t look at me like that – this mixtape is the furthest from over-the-top sap. Matter of fact, it’s hardly about love or loving or lovers at all! (minus Gillian’s song My First Lover, which isn’t even romantic, but simply incredible and everyone must store this song somewhere in […]
