Another National Chicken Month has come and gone. I know, it’s sad really. But not really. Because I for one am so over chicken. Not so much the food, but the ‘tude. I’m sick to death of being chicken shit. Scared of silly things. This occurred to me the other day when talking to a [...]
The fabulous HcQ hooked me up today with a great new release from DJ Shadow called “You Made It.” The vocals are by Chris James of Stateless. It’s fantastic. Enjoy. The Record Girl image was lifted from Empire Waste Designs. If you like it, by all means go there and buy one of their Tshirts. [...]
There are some people who are like songs. Seeing them, hearing them talk, even thinking about them takes you back to a different time or place. They’re like bookmarks in your life.

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. But then, I’ve been meaning to finish the four books on my nightstand for a while. And the thing is, I’ve been reading less lately. Scratch that. I’ve been reading as much as ever lately. But I’ve been reading fewer books. And I used to always [...]
Ever heard of Colorstrology? Me neither. Until I found this site, sponsored by Pantone, at Persimmon and Pink.

Introductions have always been easy for me. Because I am my father’s daughter, I have always been able to walk right up to anyone, even Oprah herself, any day anytime and introduce myself.
