I had a pretty marvelous weekend between my friend’s opening for her master of fine art thesis exhibit, Iowa High School All State Music festival, a pedicure, and some geekery.
If I’m going to do Throwback Thursday, I have to do a birthday shout out to one of my favorite ladies in the whole wide world, Danielle. She’s been a good friend since the time we were learning how to read. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May you look your age this year. 😉 Here’s a cute pic […]
During my travels to Austin, TX, I was introduced to a band called Metric. And by introduced, I mean I actually figured out that the band I’ve been digging on The Current is actually Metric. And I’m in love. [ source ] They don’t have many official music videos, but this is one of the […]
First of all, I have to tell you that last night’s Doomtree show was awesome! And awesomely loud. I brought ear plugs for once. Loudest show I’ve been to. And you know what kind of music I listen to … \m/ The show was SOLD OUT. Which still made for an intimate event at this […]

I received these pretty packages in the mail … They’re CDs that I designed for my friend Flip’s band The Half Hearts. My friend Kim did the paintings and I […]
CHILDREN OF BODOM is coming to Des MOINES! October 1 — they’re supporting Black Label Society, who, I’m cool with seeing again, but more importantly: ALEXI LAIHO is coming to Des Moines. AND it’s a small venue. Which means. I could be. Within. His. Reach. Oh man. By the way … for those of you […]
As some of you may know, my boyfriend is in a band called Assault Company (www.assaultcompany.com for their latest EP). Some of you may not recall that how I met my boyfriend was because I was in the band for a while as the lead singer. I did two shows (in one day) and that […]
