I'm sorry! I just don't GET IT.

Art, is a finicky, slippery, fish of a thing.

Some people love it! Crave it! Marinate and savor it!

Other people want to toss it back into the ocean where it undoubtedly belongs.

Still others are somewhere in the between. Taking it as they find it, but not always overtly seeking it out.

Well, jokes on you, Still Others, because art is EVERYWHERE. Your beloved Super Bowl commercials? That was someone's artistic marketing dream! The jingle of your go-to oil changery? That was borne of a musician's heart! The color scheme of your CPA's office? Yeah, someone said to herself, "These commercial business chairs will look alright with this commercial business carpet, and this wall hanging from Staples is fine."

Art is, delightfully, everywhere.

(Here is comes...)


The trickiest misconception about art is that you have to, you know get it. Understand it. It has to mean something to you every time. And here's the thing. It might not.

Friday Tunez


Just me? Hope so. I hope everyone else is stunned that it is ALREADY the weekend again! HOW can this be?!

Anyway, here's a song I started listening to to impress a boy a long time ago. What other reason did collegiate girls have to listen to songs?

It was old then, and it's even older now. It's My Coco, by stellastarr*. 

Commence dancing around your bedroom. I certainly did.

Continue dancing around your bedroom. I certainly will.

Friday Tunez

Happy April, Fools!

Enjoy this warm, buttery wonder from down under while you batten down your hatches in preparation for a lovely spring snow storm!

It's John Butler Trio's "Zebra" and I'm pretty sure I listened to it EVERY DAY during my tenure at BU. Listen to it once, and I'm confident you'll pick up a similar habit.

Have a great weekend!

Living in a Calamity - Shop Handmade!

Way back in September, in the beautiful warm, sunny, Summer's baby sister part of Fall, Meghan and I (with our pal Ray) sojourned over to Assembly Row, where our friends The Grownup Noise were playing a set in the lovely outdoor amphitheater.  We ate brie sandwiches and sipped iced coffee from Paul. We basked in the sun in the company of already warm friends.

It was pretty much the best day.

Friday Tunez!

Fridays in September, man. I'll take 'em!

Here's a song I like. It could remind me of a boy [or two] but it doesn't. And I like it even more.

Limbeck with "Honk + Wave." Listen and feel great about yourself.

Enjoy this summery Septembery weekend!
