Be My Baby: The Very Best of The Ronettes

Ugh, let’s go fall desperately in love with someone. (Probably not Phil Spector.)

Here are some personal (as opposed to professional) goals I have set for myself through the end of 2012:

  • Move back to NYC.
  • Start homebrewing.
  • Open an online store where I sell accessories and deconstructed t-shirts.
  • Buy a sewing machine so I can relearn how to sew and make some stuff beyond the above.
  • Start learning French because I love French films and I want to be able to dick around on the Internet while I watch them.
  • Get to a point where I can make a list of what I am looking for in a person to love, because I am only willing (and possibly able) to do the serious relationship thing one more time, so I need to get it right.
  • Update this blog regularly.


obviously, i feel it necessary to read any article with a title that speaks to my inner core (you have no idea how many times i fall on a weekly basis), but i’ve always been curious about ‘what exactly happened with sigerson morrison’? here is the answer to all of your questions…and it isn’t good. in fact, it’s quite sad. i truly hope that kari sigerson and miranda morrison can encounter the experience they once had.

This is really depressing.



Country Grammar

One of my favorite activities this summer is riding around in my friend Abby’s Subaru singing along with this.

Jose Clemente Orozco’s mural series The Epic of American Civilization is housed in the basement of Baker-Berry Library at Dartmouth College.  Currently closed to the public because of renovations, the murals were painted between 1932 and 1934 and present a vibrant, unsettling history of the Americas.

In 1936, Jackson Pollock traveled to Dartmouth to see the Orozco murals, and much of his work of that time was influenced by his experience of Orozco’s paintings.  Last month, I was lucky to see pieces from the artists side by side in last month’s exhibition at Dartmouth’s Hood Museum, Pollock and Orozco: Men of Fire.
