My Playlists: Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Playlist Vol I & II

With the recent Paul McCartney concert and Guardians of the Galaxy premiere, I have had a Seventies dance party swirling around in my head. I created a new mix including the tunes from “Awesome Mix Vol I” and those I think Star-Lord should have on Vol II.
You can listen on 8tracks
or on Spotify:

Enjoy the earworms!



My Playlists: A New Crush Remembered (1989)

This playlist from 1989 started out as a mix tape of songs that reminded me of a dude I was crushing on. 25 years later I can not be certain which dude it was but the generous amount of Camper Van Beethoven have it narrowed down to one of two. Ahh, memories…faded, vague memories.

My Current Crushes

A few of the things I am currently crushing on:

photo(7)1) Whole Me Almond Cluster cereal is so very tasty and crunchy and perfect with yogurt. It can be ordered online:





172) Marieke® Gouda Burning Mélange is my new favorite cheese with a yummy blend of herbs; pairs nicely with a variety of fruit. It can be ordered online:

My Playlists: Keepin The Current Vol 1 (2010)

I finally started playing with Spotify and will be uploading my too many playlist slowly.

“Keeping The Current” Vol 1 is the first of a series of playlists I made right after SXSW 2010 when I could not get enough Spoon, The Hold Steady, Free Energy, Blitzen Trapper and others. This playlist seems relevant again as The Hold Steady has a new album out tomorrow and I will be seeing Blitzen Trapper and Drive-by Truckers live again this week.

The playlist reminds me of being at Stubbs in Austin, TX at the very back of the outdoor venue sitting on a boulder so I could rest my soon-to-be-replaced hip when some random dude came and sat by me and started to talk but then fell over and laid on the ground for a while before his friends finally came to retrieve him.  I have a way with the dudes.
