The Challenges

F you, Hyundai

In an ideal world that I would have like to have presented to you, this post was going to be titled ‘Year in Recap 2013′. In it, I would have presented fabulous pictures of glamorous revelry and smiles galore. The reality is that life has been been overwhelming, maybe even kicking my a**, and I […]

Back to Black

Sacramento, CA

It’s been a very long time since I’ve updated here! First thing that you’ll notice is a new look, which I’m really happy with.

The End of an Era

Tougher than Leather

The Beastie Boys are one of those bands that I always thought would be around forever and ever. Well, you know what I mean. Everything and everyone dies, but still. Adam Yauch (MCA, Nathaniel Hornblower, etc.) helped bring Tibet to younger kids (like me) with the Beastie Boys. Grand Royal was a great magazine and […]

Mom’s Day Off

Love Will Tear Us Apart

Pinterest Mystery

Happy Valentine’s Day, you fiends, foes, friends, and foxies. Here are some links for Valentine’s Day or any day of the year, really. I used to intensely dislike this holiday for a variety of very good reasons, but I’m leaning toward ambiguous to actually posting about it here. Little Miss Coco and I are sitting […]
