You Are Not So Smart

Hey, you guys! I’ve got a favor to ask you… can you read this post, then go listen to a super-good song, then cast a vote for my husband, if you like it? Cool! I knew you’d say yes. Here’s the scoop: My wicked-smart and talented husband Dave introduced me to the blog You Are Not So Smart a few months ago. It’s mission is pretty awesome: The Misconception: You are a rational,... read more

By Request: My Duran Duran Photos

The other day, I told you about my Duran Duran problem. Today, I bring you photos from the momentous day when I met Mr. John Taylor. It was sometime in the early ’90s in San Francisco. Dave and I waited for four hours in the blustery shadows of skyscrapers in downtown SF. I was reading a hard cover of Jaws by Peter Benchley while we waited – a dork to the last. We finally FINALLY FINALLY got... read more

‘Scuse Me While I Turn 16

Back in the day, my best friend Renee and I were total Durannies. She loved Simon, and John Taylor (bass, for the uninitiated) was all mine. We watched the documentary Sing Blue Silver almost every day after school, usually with a bowl of buttered popcorn and orange juice over ice, daydreaming about how we would go see them and then, when we snuck backstage, Simon and John would fall madly in love with us... read more

I Have a Confession To Make: J.Lo & Three Musketeers

I’ve had two hard workout days in a row, and I’m on a deadline/stress-train at work. I am tired. While fretting and typing and fretting and thinking and fretting and drinking decaf tea, I perked up to an embarrassing degree when “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” materialized on my iTunes. “Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don’t… Think I wanna floss, I got my... read more

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: Social Distortion

Also a favorite? Acting like a 17-year-old… which I will be doing for the next four days, minus a 2-hour chunk of time on Friday morning when I have to wear grown-up clothes and do a presentation at a client meeting. Can you even? A client meeting! In the middle of Social Distortion Weekend! But I’m getting ahead of myself. First, listen to this while you read my rant below: So… Social... read more

My Sharona

On February 14, Doug Fieger, the vocalist for The Knack, moved on to the big rock arena in the sky. He was the songwriter behind one of the best running and roller skating and rocking songs EVER: My Sharona. Fieger said when he met Sharona Alperin – he was 25, she was 17! – “It was like getting hit in the head with a baseball bat; I fell in love with her instantly. And when that happened, it... read more

Time For Fun

This may be the world’s most perfect pop song. Enjoy! Fun fact: When MTV debuted on August 1, 1981, this was the last video to air for the day. (Here’s a list of the top 13 videos aired on MTV’s first... read more

Friday Fun

Pasta’s out, but with these sauces, spaghetti squash and browned ground beef (or bison!) will never be lonely. I don’t know about you, but a bagel as big as my head doesn’t hold much appeal anymore. Nothing says “weekend” like med ball cleans, burpees, and Russian twists. This looks like a good one to do on your own, no? This just makes me want to watch A Christmas Story... read more

This is Why I CrossFit and Eat Dino-Chow

Or, more accurately, one of the reasons I CrossFit and eat dino-chow. There’s not much as fun as Karaoke Apocalypse. Or being on stage. Or dancing around like an idiot. And the song “Tom Sawyer” takes me straight back to my 14-year-old roller skating days at the Roller Roost II in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. Note: There’s a reason for the ponytails and bandanna. It was Friday the... read more

Karaoke Apocalypse – TOMORROW @ The Highball

All CrossFit (and veggies and sleep) could make me a dull girl… that’s why there’s Karaoke Apoclaypse. My ridiculously fun, talented, rock-n-roll bandmates insure that along with all the healthy stuff, I remember to wear something skimpy and rock it out once in a while. Why should you come to the Karaoke Apocalypse show? Live. band. karaoke. Punk rock, metal, and new wave from the... read more
