Thanks for stopping by and visiting Perhaps you want to hear my mom leave me voicemails? Or know about my running list of archenemies and nemesies to keep me spry into my old age. Or you just want to know what music I am listening to and what books I am reading, regardless, you'll find it all here!

Oh horror movies, why can't the survivor walk through the house and see everyone dead at the end?

Or how I learned to stop worrying and start loving the slasher flicks of the early 80s.


Pat and I took a trip to Old Orchard today to enjoy the balmy start of March in Chicago. As Pat said, it is coming in like the Kraken so I hope it goes out like a lamb, perhaps the golden fleeced lamb of said mythology.

Two Days

On goes the saga of my mom calling me at home and getting angry when I do not pick up the phone... but I was at work.

Top [20+] Albums, Songs and Genres?

One of the current Facebook memes is a list of the top 15, 20, 25 albums that have shaped your life. I have heemed and hawed on my list and finally decided to put it together here. I was having a hard time nailing it down to albums, in general, so I have opened it up a bit more.  I think I will keep it to a list of 15 or 20, but a few items will be grouped, like Twee Pop, a few will be one-off songs... because the album was not as striking as the single song and a few will just be random.
