Art of the Muses

If you had to create a soundtrack of your life, what would it sound like? Mine would be mostly ’90s eclectic. Of course, I’m in a pretty neutral mood today, so I imagine this would change on a daily basis. In any case, this is a cool, fun music exercise for a sweet playlist. (These 6 questions x 7 different days/moods). I’ll add it to my 100 things to do when I have spare time.

For today, August 9, 2012, here is my list:

What was the first song you ever bought?

Well, I think the first album I bought was Nevermind by Nirvana (at least that’s what I’d like to remember…maybe it was really a Mariah Carey album :X)


What song always gets you dancing?

What song takes you back to your childhood?

What is your perfect love song?*

What song would you want at your funeral?**

Time for an encore. One last song that makes you, you.

*this is a crazy, crazy question. This was one song at my wedding, but I didn’t have an “official” song because…no, too many.

**never thought about this, so this is my placeholder in case I die tomorrow.

Music: Dirty Heads-Spread Too Thin

I would love to hear other Life playlists… :)

Foot buddies


From Long Island to Queens to Brooklyn to Manhattan and maybe even one time to the Bronx, then to San Francisco and Chicago, my favorite sneakers have reached the end of their life. I haven’t worn them more than once in the past 2 years, but I held on to them for the memories they helped me create. Really great ones that stemmed from more than the cities they helped me walk through, but the people and ideas that surrounded the time of my life when I was 19-30.

Turning 30 didn’t instill a deep life altering feeling in me…not until I had to make the conscious decision to remove such an iconic piece of my past. These limited edition satin Converse most reminded me of me becoming myself.

So, thanks little shoes, and sorry I wore away your soles while you helped me find mine. :)

Ricky Gervais is cooler than I thought

“By law, rabbits must have cosmetic chemicals dripped in their eyes or spread over their sensitive skin, causing sores and bleeding, “ saying that it makes him “particularly angry that some previously cruelty-free companies are abandoning their principles and returning to animal testing in order to profit from the Chinese market,” which is “worth billions of dollars.”

But, continued Gervais, “You cannot put a price on morality and compassion.”
