This morning meteorologist Ron Childers was awe struck at my on air declaration that skulls are in. It was one of those bizarre chat moments where we were talking about Kanye West’s new tour merchandise that features confederate flags and skulls. Very strange. Still you see skulls all over blogs and Pinterest or nice boutiques. Here is proof for Ron. I especially love the sweatshirt.
I love a lady who makes good / soulful music. Sharon Van Etten played the hi-tone last November. I was there to see someone else, but was just blown away. A mix of beautiful vocals, hard dark guitars, and songs that move in an original direction have made her a favorite. She’s the real deal. Also spent some time studying music at MTSU. TN connection for you and she happens to be beautiful. Enjoy. I love the album – Tramp – so much. The two YouTube links are for my two favorites :: Warsaw & Serpents.

Here in Memphis we’e been flirting with fall. We’ll have a couple of crisp days and then it’s like they never happened because we return to the 80’s so quickly. After two rainy days in a row, we are about to have several perfect fall days. I’ve already switched out my closets, so I need these lower temps to stay. I love this picture above. Fall means so much to people. What does it mean to you? I’ve decorated and plan to enjoy all the season has to offer. It will be gone before we know it!

We’ve all fallen in love. Well, I’ve had two males cowardly tell me before that they don’t know how to love? Crazy liars. If you ask me the only thing close to as big as falling in love is falling in love with new music. It’s a similarly earth shattering / I’ve been reborn feeling. The more you hear the more you are convinced this is something a cut above just the one hot song you download. When it’s a whole portfolio of heart stealing music my heart dips.
This week it’s dipping for Small Black. The band has a new and second release out as of this past May. It’s lovely dream pop at its best, with moments of nice intensity. There is plenty of shine and sparkle to last you an entire evening, some even enter into the ballad realm, still plenty of sparkle with those as well.
Pay no mind to Pitchfork’s review, if you happen to run across it. The writer simply must have been in the middle of a bad day or writing reviews for the wrong genre.
Happy Friday. Feel free to celebrate my 30th birthday with me all weekend. The day of my birth is the 15th. I plan to listen to plenty of tunes, soak up the fall sunshine and enjoy a nice drink or two. Cheers to being alive!!!!!!
What an amazingly hilarious Halloween costume for little ladies and adults!! Saw this idea featuring Vogue editor Anna Wintour while anchoring this morning and couldn’t stop giggling. Then I realized I was about to read a story about the debt ceiling and straightened up right fast.

Mom and I loved this spot in Louisiana. What an adorable cottage. It was my first day back at work today after being off a week with my family. I got in at 10 last night and woke 2:45 am, so I’m in need of serious sleep time. What I really want to do is write about my trip!!!! I miss mom and dad so much. Soon!!!!
Hope the weather is as nice where you are on this Monday as it is here in Memphis.
