Songs of My Life: May 2017

Not a lot of diversity artist wise for May. A lot of Sylvan Esso, Matthew Ryan, Depeche Mode and a few new artists thanks to the ultimate mindfuck that is the world of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. May was up and down for me. A full moon and new moon bookending the month fucked with me…

Songs of My Life: April 2017

April, the month, saw the birth of April the Giraffe’s baby. Finally. Yes, I stalked the internet waiting for that giraffe to be born. April also had my head in a fucking god damn tizzy. I swung back and forth between “fucking hostile” and “fucking crying”. Finally, toward the end of the month, I landed…

Songs of My Life: March 2017

I’m not sure what the rhyme or reason was behind the music of March. Listening I would feel the theme would be “X” and then a song and half later, I’d find myself saying, “no it’s Y”. So I am just going with here are 15 songs that represent me at various points of March…

Songs of My Life: February 2017

In my journal, I made myself answer the question: What is right about me that I’m not getting?

Songs of My Life: January 2017

One month down eleven more to go. Not that I’m rushing 2017 through. So far so good. Sitting down and listening to all the songs again, I feel that the theme or message of January was about loving, being there, standing up for what you believe in and never giving up. That’s what I took…

Songs of My Life: December 2016

December started out on a positive note, fell to shit around the middle, and is ending in a ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  <— I think that emoji really could sum up the whole of 2016 along with these 3 letters: WTF. It could definitely sum up the last week of December with the deaths of George Michael, Carrie Fisher,…

Songs of My Life: November 2016

November felt like it moved as slow as molasses on a winter day. There was something askew with November. I felt as I was walking through a haze, a cloud but maybe Lorelei Gilmore said it best in the episode of “Fall” in Gilmore Girls, “I feel like I’m standing still.” I just felt off this…
