Music A to Z EEEEEEEEEEEE HAH! May 20, 2014

My good friend Jackie over at Ambling and Rambling has been posting these Music A to Z deals, and I decided that I would finally join in on this one. I may not have followed the protocol on this, so I will not be too shocked when the Music A to Z police surround the house.

This week is dedicated to the letter E— a bit of a challenge, but I am up for it.

Let’s get to it. And don’t judge. I didn’t dig deep into the Dylan archives. You’re welcome.



ELO “Strange Magic” Love the harmony on this song.


Ellen Page Michael Cera “Anyone Else But You” If you don’t think this is charming, I just don’t know.


Van Morrison “Enlightenment” Only Van can get away with the lyric about one hand clapping. Van is THE MAN.


Eddie Vedder carries “Comfortably Numb.” Come on, Eddie sounds amazing. Roger Waters? You be the judge.

Elvis Costello “Deep Dark Truthful Mirror” I just think this song is beautiful, and his voice powerful.

I learned for the first time today the lyrics to the Grateful Dead song “Dire Wolf.”


In the timbers to fennario, the wolves are running round,
The winter was so hard and cold, froze ten feet neath the ground.
Dont murder me, I beg of you, don’t murder me. please, don’t murder me.



I’m wondering if these guys were on drugs.

Goodbye, Richie Havens April 22, 2013

In the early 90’s, I saw Richie Havens in a small community college auditorium.  I was in the second row, and it was one of the most amazing, powerful musical experiences of my life.  Crazy amazing guitar. Huge spirit.

The news of his passing hits me harder than it should.  But it is what it is.  Just listen.


Dylan vs. Lash Extensions October 20, 2012

Bob Dylan Subterranean Homesick Blues

Why does this song comfort me after a hellish week? I know that there are many who can’t tolerate Dylan.  I can’t imagine life without Dylan.  Dylan makes me feel better when I see an add for a discount coupon for “lash services,” including full lash extensions. Dylan=real. Lash extensions=fake and deserving of ridicule.  Even if you don’t like Dylan, I hope that you are not considering lash extensions.  You look good without them.  And you don’t want to wear something hanging off your eyelids that is the equivalent of one of the Dylan cue cards that says, “I measure my worth by the length of my lashes.” Get real, and go listen to “Blood On the Tracks.”

life on wry

Life as a sandwich generation x’er, stacked with irony. As a ‘normal’ person peering out from the boundaries of suburbia, as a transplant from another state, maybe another planet. As a mother of teenage boys and freelance working writer balancing parenting with helping to care for my mother. And now as an only child of a mother with Alzheimer’s (which sucks).
