Booooogie Woogie

Image source: here & here.

I made a short and hopefully sweet Halloween mix on 8 tracks.
I honestly planned on having more songs on here. When things are not so hectic maybe I can expand the playlist or do a part two. I just wanted to get this out cause we're already HALFWAY through October. Jeez, where does time go!?


Sea Lion Goth Blues - The Growlers
Cementario - Los Saicos
Voodoo Woman - Koko Taylor
Run Run Run - The Velvet Underground
Fright Night (Nevermore) - Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
I Put A Spell On You - Nina Simone
Werewolf Heart - Fiona Apple
Girl With One Eye - Florence + The Machine

Grr another inspiration post. I'm too tired (and poor, but that's a given) to go out and experience the city. My weekends are booked making a souper special something for a souper special someone and being a dork with my new dog. All this to say, "I wanna show you something new, but hopefully this will suffice til then."

Cocteau Twins - Beatrix

I'm really loving dusty pastels and grey this fall. Lavender and heather grey, Salmon and ash grey, mint and pewter. Here's a roundup of things found on the innernetz.

Can't really form a strong enough opinion on her music, but Solange's style is BEAST to me. I'm sure people are tired of seeing this video it's everywhere! Sorry not sorry, I love it so!

the haps

(currently listening to)

September, boy did you do a number on me!

I've been going through ALOT this month: A great personal loss. Surprise dogs. School. And far too many other things I don't wanna get into on here.
This is my happy place.

Meet Buster!
My lil' guy. My pumpkin pie. My dad just brought a random animal home this month, and after my last pet passed I felt really apprehensive about having another. I've really taken to him though. He's a real sweetie and his vengeance for squirrels is unparalleled.
I campaigned really hard for the name Beans cause he's part Beagle (idk) and if I ever get a Dachshund I could name it "Beans and Weenie" Har har har, I need to get a life.
I've started a new comic with my buddy. It spawned from my apprehension about college tests and science and love of post apocalyptic scenarios, oh and records. For every good score something good happens to the main character for every less than savory score something bad happens. I'd love to share it on the blog at some point.
I got some goodies in the mail!

What have you guys been up to? I have a few posts queued so expect to hear from me soon.
