I'm *always* meaning to do a better job of posting to Instagram more regularly. Typically whenever I post something, I feel good that I've actually remembered to and convince myself that I've now turned over a new leaf ... then forget to post again for weeks. I stopped using Facebook years ago, and never re-adjusted to sharing random parts of my day online. But I'd really like to get in the habit of using this site better, particularly to share favorite music and books, my goofy cats, and my latest wardrobe acquirements because, hey, t-shirt collections deserve to be documented, right? 😉 Anyway ... I spent the morning updating my Mew playlist to include songs from Visuals, and now I'm reading “This Is Your Brain On Music” by Daniel J. Levitin and waiting for the projected thunderstorm to roll in. Reading while it's raining is one of my favorite things. Don't fail me now, Weather Channel!
Damn right there is! Are you really under the impression I haven’t been counting down the days @spotify?! 🤖
Two obsessions in one: XTC + Japanese pressings.
I want to eat the huevos rancheros tostadas @first.watch every day. Two sunny-side up eggs, chorizo, avocado, salsa verde, chive crema, feta and cilantro. So good! 😋
Last night, this little lady either bumped her eye or had something in it. It was watering up a storm, she was keeping it closed, was clearly uncomfortable + I was worried. Today, thankfully, she has two pain-free peepers! She's currently being entertained by the surprise snow storm that just blew in + trying to figure out how to get the snowflakes that are stuck to the window. 🤔
Had a pretty solid weekend over here. Measured + photographed some new merchandise that will be added to the shop later this week + worked on some new playlist artwork (that, tbh, I'm pretty happy with + keep admiring. 😂) I'm currently working on an XTC playlist, which is turning out to be one of the most enjoyable playlists to assemble yet. I typically give Skylarking most of my XTC-related attention, so I was missing out on all these other greatest-hits-quality albums in their discography. It's going to be hard to keep this playlist from becoming, basically, every song. 😜 Anyway ... the website has also been given a fresh look + playlist pages has been added to the site. Link in bio.
No thugs in our house. Are there, dear? We made that clear. We made little Graham promise us he'd be a good boy. #SongOfTheDay
Throwback to stomping through the snow at Vaile Mansion in my best thrift store find.
The best kind of mail days. 🙌🏼
