Monthly Mixtape: My Perfect Half Marathon Playlist

Welcome to another edition of Monthly Mixtape! This month I thought I’d share my perfect half marathon playlist. This is the latest of many that I’ve created over the years, but the format usually stays pretty much the same! I made a brand new running playlist for my most recent half marathon, and it’s pretty killer, if…

Monthly Mixtape: Putting a Spring in Your Step

Welcome to another edition of Monthly Mixtape! Somehow I forgot April (oops!), but I’m back with a great playlist (if I do say so myself) to get you through May! Spring is in the air, and I wanted the songs on this month’s playlist to make me as happy as the sunshine on my shoulders. I…

I moved a bunch of pictures to my SD card because my phone is perpetually low on storage, and…

YouTube find: Postmodern Jukebox

Zevi’s always browsing The Awesomer finding cool things to check out, and last night he came across this YouTube channel called Postmodern Jukebox. Have you heard of them? They do jazz-infused covers of all sorts of songs, from boy band hits, to old school cartoon themes, to modern hits. I love the totally unique spin that…

Mike Edel and Towers and Trees at the Ironwood

Watching live music fills my soul in a way that nothing else can. I haven’t been to many concerts this year, so I was excited when my lovely sister Julia invited me and Zevi to a show at the Ironwood. Between Julia and her friend they’d gathered a pretty large group so we had quite the…

My Five: Favourite Albums Right Now

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you’ve got some exciting things in store for the weekend. Since I am currently unemployed every day is pretty much a weekend, but Friday and Saturday seem to be when everyone else is in the mood to have fun, so they’re still exciting for me ;). I always like hearing about what other…
