Ceiling Fan to Snow

29, Feb 2012

It is warm enough in Austin tonight that my ceiling fan is on and I am chewing peppermint gum in an effort to not want to crank the AC. Tomorrow we leave for Red River, NM, where I understand it is (to quote a local) “freaking cold” and snowy. Being as I have a new […]

Lofty Ambition

26, Feb 2012

We had a fun weekend in Dallas and Fort Worth, and now I am currently obsessed with affording a downtown loft in a large city. Probably Austin, but dang…Dallas is cool downtown! Who knew? Currently freaking out over March looming closer. I will be gone most of the month and I am trying to figure […]

Whip In, Whip In Good

23, Feb 2012

It was a great time at the Whip In last night with Emily Shirley, Katie Lessley, and Elizabeth Wills. I compare it to a circus, in that everyone was rotating on and off stage and such, doing different things. It worked out. I chickened out on the electric stuff but just need a little more […]

Blame Sally!

16, Feb 2012

This summer Susan opened for Blame Sally in Denver and I had perhaps heard of them before but hadn’t been exposed to their music. They were AWESOME. I have trumpeted their brilliance since that day, and I was thrilled to find out they were doing a house concert in New Braunfels on a Sunday that […]

Emily asked me to play a gig with her next week and we got together last night to actually…you know, work on songs together.  It was so fun.  I got out my Telecaster and I might just never put it down again. I was rather attached to the electric guitar in high school. I had […]

I’m sad and I don’t even know why. If I started rattling off my favorite singers it would probably take me a long time to get to Whitney, just because she was never huge on my radar. I was a teenager when the VH-1 Divas Live thing came around, and there was no doubt Whitney […]

Early Month Check In

8, Feb 2012

Alright, so month 2 of 12 months of experiments is underway, and as explained below, I’m calling this one The Early Month. This has actually turned into a bit of a misnomer because while I tried, I cannot quite tweak my schedule to get up at 5 AM at this juncture. There is rarely the […]

Folk Viral

8, Feb 2012

I kept waiting for someone to do this, and no one had picked up on the hilarity of this “Sh*t People Say” meme and how singer-songwriters are pretty stereotypical sometimes. So I did it. It’s going mini-viral, which in my world equates to 1600 hits in 2 days. That’s not bad. Better than I’ve ever […]
