From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Who Am I? Do You Really Want To Know...

I'm the type of girl who



...at least once a week gets in the car and thinks of just driving away. not as much to leave things behind, but more to see what new things I can find.

...believes that chocolate is God's most perfect food.

...believes that dogs are the best people. this is not up for discussion.

...can read the most horrifying news of the day without batting an eyelash, but will sob at a song lyric. and don't ever show me an animal being hurt.

...feels more at home in an old blues bar than at a family dinner.

...stopped suffering fools a while back and consequently, I suffer less.

...decided I was way old enough to decide what makes me happy, and do it.

...still wants to be Grace Slick when I grow up,

...hopes in my next life I will be able to play a guitar.

...will look back on her life and be happy knowing I loved and was loved. 

Thanks to Lance for the idea for this post, who got it from Dawn. To try and pick one song that defines you is next to impossible, especially if you don't want to spend the next 34 1/2 hours doing it. So I picked one that kind of suits me fairly well.

Those of you who know me will probably agree with the second half of the title.

A little something by Melissa Etheridge

    1. Thanks Brahm, of course there are a lot of other things I know about myself that I have chosen to ignore for this little exercise. Actually some of them were probably more interesting.

  3. I remember my life when she showed up in my life, I was much crazier then. Well on the outside. I'm still crazy on the inside.

    1. I'm thinking you probably don't want to be Grace Slick when you grow up. We are creepily similar in a lot of ways. Maybe the song I picked last week has more meaning than we know... or at least remember. Thanks to you and Dawn for the exercise.

  5. This is me too. And I love the line about suffering fools - haha! - that is spot on. And the blues bar over the family dinner? Aw, hell, that was proven yesterday for sure. Love this.
