Mix Tape : Christmas Jamz

Ho, Ho, Ho! Now that is officially Christmas music listening to time (post Nov 15), I am bestowing upon you the very best in christmas jamz. I consider myself a connoisseur of the best holiday tuneages. I practically love all Christmas music except for Paul McCartney's "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time", which makes me simply have a horrible headache with an even worse song stuck in my head and sometimes I might even puke a little. (Take a chill pill crazy lady) Here you have it, the ultimate compilation of my favorite Christmasy time jamz. My favorites Christmas crooners of course are, Bruce, Elvis, Willie, and Bob, but I wanted to provide you with a well rounded Christmas listening experience and added in a couple other favs to top it off. Hope you enjoy. Continue after the jump for my Spotify playlist! Ho, Ho, Ho, Mix Get the Scoop [...]

Best Bruce Weekend Recap!

Hello my friends! This weekend with Bruce was a total success!! We made it to the pit both nights, luck was on our side! The first night I had my first experience touching Bruce as he landed on top of me during "Hungry Heart," while crowd surfing to the stage. It was great, I realized I wasn't holding him up but instead grabbing onto his calf. It was awesome. The second night we brought our buddies Beak and Cam to their first ever show. Somehow we got lucky in the pit lottery (thanks Heidi) and made it to the 2nd row and experienced Bruce and the band up close and personal. We got to hear a few of my fav's, "The E-Street Shuffle," "Murder Incorporated," and then "Jungleland" during the encore. Not to mention some super big firsts; opening the show with "I'm a Rocker," and playing "Devils and Dust" with the entire band. It doesn't get much better, two nights, two totally different and amazing shows. So I'll be done with all this Bruce obsessing for awhile and hopefully will have something cool and home oriented to tell you about soon. Hang in there guys, my Bruce posts are almost over.

Mix Tape : Cold Weather Jamz

Hey E'rbody! Man, that cold that I had last week has really gotten me out of the blogging rhythm. Not only that, Finn's new preschool schedule in conjunction with having a fourth kid in the house on Monday's has put a wrench in my day-to-day life. I'm usually pretty good about keeping a notebook of ongoing lists and ideas for future posts as well as keeping up with projects that are in process but I seriously have nothing right now. Don't know if any of you blogger friends experience this from time to time but my motivation and inspiration is going through a major drought right now. I have got to get myself on a regime, but maybe after this week. For now I'm focused on Jeff's bday, it's coming up at the end of this week and I feel like it's going to take all my free time getting that business together. Anyway, a good mix tape always gets me moving in a positive direction. I put this one together, it's full of some tracks from some of my favorite fall records including Sleater-Kinney - The Woods, Nico - Chelsea Girl, and Blond Redhead - Melody of Certain Damage (babes make good fall jams). I also included a track from the new Bob Dylan record, an oldie but goodie from PJ (aka Pearl Jam) and few other little nuggets that have been finding themselves on my record player lately. It feels fall-y in here already. Hope you enjoy, and I hope to be around more often. Breaks whether planned or not are always good for my state of mind. Mucho Love, Scoops Continue after the jump for my Spotify playlist! Get the Scoop [...]

Mix Tape : End of Summer Jamz

I don't know if you know this about me but I kinda love me some jam listening. Seriously though, my husband Jeff and I have spent the last 15 years working on a pretty extensive and deep vinyl collection. It's almost all great with barely any junk. I'm not telling you that to gloat either, I'm telling you just so that you know how fer real I am when it comes to music. Also, I'm serious business when it comes to making mix tapes. This mix is inspired by a few things, first and foremost, our trip to Ireland of course. Not only did we see Bruce Springsteen twice when we were there, we also dedicated half a day to record shopping. We found some pretty sweet UK printed jamz (Thin Lizzy, Rolling Stones, and Van Morrison) at our fav Dublin store, R.A.G.E Records. We've also been listening to a lot of music inspired by our recent and heavy intake of music docs on Netflix. Two of the most awesome ones we've seen are the Harry Nillson doc (Who Is Harry Nillson) and a pretty great Live Elvis vid **(This is Elvis). This doc is amazing and Elvis' band is super huge and awesome. I had to throw some live Elvis into the mix as well, because my new found appreciation for Elvis surpasses just Christmas records. We've got quite the line up of shows and concerts on deck and I had to include some tracks from Beach House and Archer's of Loaf, both bands we will be seeing in the coming weeks. I hope to make this a regular series on the blog. Let me know what you think. You need Spotify to listen and you can download it here Get the Scoop [...]
