Power Ballad Love Song Playlist

My cool friend @renewabelle has had some interesting jobs. She did a (paid!) stint as a chainsaw-wielding maniac, has some bartending and comedy in her history, and she did a little bit of basement radio station DJ-ing at one point as well. I put together this playlist from one of her audio tracks from those […]

Arse-Kicking Playlist

This just in, via @renewabelle, a woman who knows how to bring some tuneage. Since she made and delivered this list through iTunes (I didn’t expect y’all to actually PURCHASE me tunes, only suggest them, but this is freakalicious, thank you very much) we learned that iTunes will tell you if the other person has […]

My Birthday Month Wish List

November is my birthday: all Glowbird (that’s my Twitter name), all the time. I even have a hashtag that has nothing to do with mustaches or writing novels: My hashtag is #nanoglomo, and it stands for National November is Glowbird’s [Birthday] Month. It can be affixed to your tweets as you discuss your plans; that […]

New Playlist for Boxing Training

One of my super-tough MMA chick friends (who will box with me periodically and who is helping me learn ju jitsu: fist bump Junie!) sent me a few suggestions for refreshing my quickly-getting-tiresome Shuffle playlist for training. Her main additions to my existing soup were: Nine Inch Nails, Head Like a Hole Alice in Chains, […]

r boyz rock

I’ve been thinking about needing a new playlist for my boys (ages 13, nearly 11, and freshly 8) who are constantly hungry for rock and roll. I’m trying to give them a rock education as well as entertain. They’ll thank me later, won’t they? Of course they will, or I will refuse to send them […]

song of the week

The whole family has been singing this song, called “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes all week. It was featured on my Day Two, Still Hard playlist that I made several months ago (and forgot to blog; now corrected). The video is wonderful, too!

so engage me

so engage me

Feeling just a wee bit grouchy and ready for my weekend to begin NOW, so I pulled a few songs together (several free iTunes downloads, plus some I just haven’t listened to much yet) and created a fresh playlist. In a fit of pique, I named it “So Engage Me.” You may notice a slight […]
