Veteran's Day Thank You #3- To Zach Attack
It was a hard decision to join the military in the middle of an ongoing war. Especially since Ben and Lex had just left for Afghanistan - but I knew Zach would be an amazing military man (and beat Ben’s sharpshooting score). Zach finished Basic Training last week. By the end of the month he will finish his MP training in Missouri and my fam are all excited to make the trip to embarrass...
Veteran's Day Thank You #2- To Sexy Lexi
2 years ago my sister traded in her V-Secret sweatpants and Cheerleading uniform for a different kind of uniform. You know - the one designed for surviving in war conditions-slightly different than the one designed specifically for making your butt look good. I was so nervous at the time that her sweet, loving, forgiving and overwhelmingly compassionate heart would be lost between the screaming...
Veteran's Day Thank You #1- To Ben
People always comment on my brother’s name. “Benjamin - ooooh, that’s a strong name” To which I respond “I know- I grew up wrestling with him” My brother is the epitome of strength, honesty and love. If Jack Bauer watched more BRAVO TV. That’s my brother. Strong and loyal, but with a soft side. I am so glad he is leading the teams that protect this...
Grocery Shopping Feels Like a 1Night Stand
Shopping at a new grocery store feels like an awkward one-night stand. I should know where everything is. They have all of the same things in the same places (for the most part). But i still find myself fumbling around- doing things twice that I know I shouldn’t. Going down the same aisle 2 or 3 times and eventually walking out without actually getting any of the things I needed…

Lou Reed Talks Photography, Andy Warhol, & More
twentyfourbit: While visiting Canada for last night’s Neil Young tribute concert in Vancouver, Lou Reed stopped by Q Radio earlier in the week to promote his new photograph book, Romanticism. Interviewer Jian Ghomeshi (who handled that confrontational Billy Bob Thornton Q&A last year) does a solid job at not getting rattled by Reed’s sometimes awkward silences, waiting patiently instead for...

Pavement - Live in St. Louis 10/14/1999
yvynyl: perpetua: DOWNLOAD IT! This was the third-to-last Pavement concert in the United States, and it’s easily one of my favorite live recordings of the band in circulation, both in terms of sound quality and band performance. They’re in fine form here, and Malkmus is super playful, rewriting verses of songs on the spot, and turning “Shady Lane” into a quasi-bluegrass number just for the...
