Revived Love for Sixteen Stone

Ok, I am officially the worst blogger ever, I know this. But, I thought I'd give you a little peak into my life as of late. So here it is. I sat in on a late night jam session at a friends recently and had my love of Bush rekindled. Epic. Why so epic? It's simple really...

Sixteen Stone is one badass record, and I had forgotten how much I loved it until a friend began playing the riff from "Machinehead". AMAZING. I literally had not thought about that song in years and years but as soon as that riff came in, my 7th grade heart almost burst. Everyone joined in pretty effortlessly and it was a full on jam sesh that then moved into "Glycerine". Totally nostalgic and 100% enjoyable. In fact I feel badly that more people don't experience that sort of fluidity and connection with others via music. Its a magical thing. Saying "magical" makes it seem like I'm not being all that serious, but really, I am. There's something about the music you listened to while growing up that brings you, or at least me, such a honest and deep internal satisfaction. When you don't hear it for a while you might not even really realize that you miss it, but when it falls back into your lap, it's like you've been holding your breath underwater until you think you might pass out, and then you come up and take that huge gasp of air.

Thats what I love about music. It never really leaves you. It waits for you.

Enjoy the tunes.

Halloween is coming... OPINIONS PLEASE!

OK, know I know, I'm rushing things here, it's not even August! However, one of my busiest seasons just happens to be early Fall/Halloween season! It's so fun for me to come up with new stuff to offer my awesome clients with a taste for Halloween whimsy!

So, this year, I'm thinking about offering Sugar Skull rings! But first, I want YOUR opinion! Would YOU like to see Sugar Skull Rings offered in the shop? Which Sugar Skull do you prefer? Heart Eyed, Flower Eyed, or both!?

Weeds Season 6 : PEEING. MY. PANTS.

I think the title of this post says it all. The wait has been killing me! Season 6 is ALMOST here!

If you know me at all you know I really only watch 2 shows religiously. The Office and Weeds. And since The Office seems to be going down the tubes sooner than I would have liked, at least I'll still have the Botwin Family to see me through seemingly endless nights of packing orders and assembling chains when the holiday season rolls around.

In fact, now that I'm thinking about the holiday season...This is an open invitation to my friends to come watch full seasons of Weeds, in one sitting, any day of the week beginning Sept. 1st with me whilst I work. I have plenty of room, a comfy couch, a sassy hot dog and a couple jokes.

By the way, I'm not entirely sure how my train of thought moved so quickly from Weeds to the holidays???

Muse vs. Jes Hudak : "Time Is Running Out", MUST WATCH

So, I hope your not sick of me posting about music because it's pretty much the biggest thing in my life besides my business...

Anyway, just a quick post to show off my friend Jes Hudak's disgusting talent once again. Here's her cover of "Time Is Running Out" by Muse. Love her take on it! And holy wow, can she sing the sh*t outta that song or what!!??

Great Job Jes! Woohoo! East Coast power!

P.S.: Jes just played the LA date of Lilith Fair...I forgot to tell you all! But anyway, yeah, high fives all around :)

Happy 5th of July!

No, that's not a typo. I've never been one who is overly enthusiastic about the 4th of July, nor am I really all that patriotic. That said, playing with sparklers is fun regardless. Pyromaniacs rejoice!

Here are a couple sparkly sparkler photos for your viewing pleasure...

And with that I say to you, my fine friends, Happy 5th if July to you all.
