Bleecker Street Records

Despite how all consuming BEA 2014 was, I managed to do quite a bit of sightseeing. On the top of my list? 4th Street*, and Greenwich Village in general (I can’t imagine why…). Anyway, my favorite stop: Bleecker Street Records. I was happy to visit, and even happier that they were open until 11pm (which madeContinue reading “Bleecker Street Records”

What I Like About…: A Top Ten List

I’ll keep this week’s list simple. The topic: things I like about blogging and things I like about reading. Both have benefits and drawbacks, but I’ll focus on the positive. What I love about blogging: 10. Online Journal: I often include a bit of what is going on in my life in my posts becauseContinue reading “What I Like About…: A Top Ten List”

2014: A Top Ten List

2013 was a bit of a mixed bag for me. There were parts that were very good and there were several that were…less so. I’ve spent the year trying to remember that I can’t control everything. I’ve also had to accept that some things just were not meant to happen (and to ignore all ofContinue reading “2014: A Top Ten List”

One Year. 200 Posts.

Post 200. In some sort of splendid coincidence, my two hundredth post roughly coincides with my one year blogging anniversary, or blogoversary, as those less proper than me are wont to call it. After all, I am nothing if not grammatically correct – check out that first sentence. And I can’t tell you how manyContinue reading “One Year. 200 Posts.”

Life Lately (according to Instagram)

I am on vacation. This is a fairly rare occurrence for me, so I am trying to enjoy it while it lasts. I’m probably not reading as much as I should, however I’m doing plenty of other things that I thought I would share (if only to make you wish you were here too andContinue reading “Life Lately (according to Instagram)”

Bob Dylan: A Love Story

I can’t say that Bob Dylan is the greatest American singer-songwriter of all time – only because I don’t know that there’s an answer to that perennial question. He is certainly one of the most influential. And he’s the one I hold most dear. If you consider lyrics to be literature, then Bob Dylan isContinue reading “Bob Dylan: A Love Story”

Admitting You’re a Nerd Is the First Step: A Top Ten List

The first step to what, I don’t know… This week’s top ten list: best bookish memories (as hosted by The Broke and The Bookish). In chronological order? The first time I read IT by Stephen King (you knew he’d be on this list somehow). I was 12 and the lone member of the Loser(s) Club.Continue reading “Admitting You’re a Nerd Is the First Step: A Top Ten List”
