Monday Morning Music – HBHBHB

"And meanwhile the man was falling from space And everyday I wore your face Like an atmosphere around me A satellite inside me" How is this song NOT about David Bowie?

2015: The Year in Random Thoughts and Obsessions

For my yearly wrap up of 2013, I wrote, “All hail the return of the king – David Bowie – and the art of the music video.” And I included a link to his surreal collaboration with Tilda Swinton for ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’.

Hard to believe but it was exactly five years ago today that I posted my first inarticulate but heartfelt ramblings about music and motherhood. On that day, I wrote about the K-POP band, Super Junior. As you know, I'm slightly obsessed with their dance... Continue Reading →

Monday Morning Music – Zero 7

The other day I saw a double-decker-bus-sized ad celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Baby G watch and I thought: the '90s are truly back. Pop culture has been flirting with a '90s revival since last year, celebrating all things flannel and scrunchie, grunge and hip-hop. So in the middle of renewed interest in Nine...
