A year ago, music advisor, string-plucker and minstrel extraordinaire, Michael Keefe, advised on his ten favorite albums of 2005. Another year has come and gone and this time he’s got twenty albums in his top ten. Check out the full explanation here. I have my own list, and even though it’s getting rather late, I […]
Stereogum reports that yesterday, Golden Voice, the promoters behind the Coachella Music Festival, made a certain number of three day passes available for $200. The discount code, apparently, was ‘Roxanne.’ I know there are no lineup confirmations (though people seem to think David Bowie is dropping in) but with the recent news of the 30-year […]
I’m standing on the corner of Fuller and Santa Monica. I’m about to cross the street to Trader Joe’s to pick up something to eat for today. Then it occurs to me as I cross the street that I left my wallet back on my kitchen counter. So I stop and retreat to the curb. […]

I swear I don’t know what my interest in this thing is. If I keep posting about it I’ll have to create a new category. Sunset. And. Vine. I see this everyday as I walk to my car. It’s like watching a flip book unfold in slow motion. The renovation of an icon. Or something. […]
I’m letting go of one of my prized possessions. Yes, it’s time to sell my cute little invader kit. Though I still love the work of the artist, I’m realizing that I don’t need this little bit of pop culture. In fact, I have a more interesting collection of tiles I can use should I […]
