Doin' the Tuesday Shuffle...

I'm in it... official spring fever dumps. It snowed again and I am having a hard time trudging to the end of the driveway in the disgusting mud and snow. blargh. Its been an interesting couple of days, I am thinking I had such a killer birthday weekend that this may be the cause of da mood... although I am quite sure it just may be something else.

I posted a T Rex video this morning on ye olde facebook... my little man Cael kept giving me his Jeepster (it truly must be love... he's a lot like his daddy) so I bust out the song... man oh man... I can almost feel the warm wind and smell the inside of my sweet Joe's old beater truck when I hear it... le sigh (in a good way)... When we first started dating (1994!!!) I made him a Marc Bolan doll sitting in a huge silver papier mache rocketship. The doll is still kickin' around but the ship is long, long gone.

So its time for the weekly pod shuffle... I am liking this routine. Its keeping me on a bit of a blogging schedule... lol... here are your 10 songs yo!

  1. Once Burned ~ Todd Rundgren
  2. Mating Ritual of The Bespectacled ~ Miss Murgatroid
  3. Wev'e Only Just Begun ~ Claudine Longet
  4. In Hopes of a Garden ~ Steppenwolf
  5. Boll Weevil ~ Leadbelly
  6. Dwarfish Trumpet Blues ~ Tyrannosaurus Rex
  7. Seen and Not Seen ~ Talking Heads
  8. Reset ~ Big Boi feat Khujo Goodie & Cee-Lo
  9. C'mon Feel the Noise ~ Titan
  10. Evil Part 2 ~ John Du Cann

I had to skip 2 that time because Leadbelly and Todd Rundgren came up twice... Its funny how your ipod can be spot on sometimes... ha ha ha... and other times it like wtf?? I listen to that!? hee hee hee... this is a good shuffle for me today :)

Its funny... with this latest rash of spring fever, I have been really thinking about the last few years. I think it is the same for others lately too... I have read so many posts from people waxing poetic about the 90s... and Veruca Salt... Veruca Salt? I really loved the whole Riot Grrrrl scene, but I just don't correlate this band with the movement. It could very well be that I was knee deep in glam for most of the decade... lol... and love... and Love... lol... I think it was my 10 years of the 70's... :)

Anyways. I had better get spinning. I need to update the shop again, and I am hoping to squeeze in some new Prims... that will be another post!

xoxo ~ as always

I love him!

We spent the weekend cruising the thrift shops and I got a great new (to me) pair of orthogeek kicks!! Dude!! I love it when I score at the Goodwill!! Its been a while since I have had any girly shoes... Imma remedy that one real soon!! lol...

If you knock on my door... I am likely to answer now!

Joe picked up a couple of the cutest dresses for me from Folk.etsy!! Oh my goodness... now, not only do I have sweet feet... I have cute dresses to go with it!! It has been a good while since I have been able to indulge in anything for myself, it feel so good to have something nice!! It is quite possible that if you were to come knocking on my door, I may just answer... hee hee hee...

So... a good weekend... a good life... some fabu clothes... sushi... what more can a 35yo girl ask for??!!

In a Monster Stylee...

Its time to shuffle yet again!! Todays playlist was brought to you by the colors of gnashing teeth, night vision, green scales and cold blood!! Grawr!

Cael's Monster Blankie Project

The Ravelympics have begun and my MONDO project is a Monster Blankie made out of handspun art yarn... needless to say this will be getting as much of my attention as possible during the Olympics (actually watching the Olympics??? Nah...)! I carded up 17 batts for this one so far... I am really not to sure how much yarn this one will actually take. By the time I am finished with it I would like to have Little Man Cael graduated to the big-boy-bottom-bunk of the bed! Hey!! Nab a pattern and make one with me!!! C'mon!! It doesn't have to be handspun... I will be freeforming it a bit, but will adhere to the pattern for the face. If you do, let me know!!! Tweet me!!

Alrighty then... on to the MUSIC!

  1. Miss Elaine ~ Run-D.M.C.
  2. Howdido ~ Woodie Guthrie
  3. Gates of Steel ~ Devo
  4. P* Da Roseira ~ Gilberto Gil
  5. The Masks/Hobby Horse ~ Paul Giovanni (Classic 1973 Wicker Man Soundtrack)
  6. Dance Song '97 ~ Sleater-Kinney
  7. Boogie Man Song ~ Mos Def
  8. Luvin' ~ Electric Prunes
  9. Unicorn Theme ~ Tangerine Dream (Legend Soundtrack)
  10. Minimum Wage ~ They Might Be Giants

Hmmm... a couple soundtracks on there... they give me away as a Fantasy dweeb. Its true... I love the faeries... :) Enjoy the mix... there is always more where that came from!

I have a load of new batts going in the shop tomorrow... here is a sneak peak... There will be 7 batts and about 4 handspun yarns... unless I get a couple more set tonite! (crosses fingers)

Batt 7

Batt 6

Batt 5

Oh yeah... I'll be 35 at the end of the week... how on earth that happened I'll never be able to figure out!!! Ha ha ha... naw... Imma grow old gracefully, I like being smarter and wiser... and smart... and knowing everything... and ask me, because I know... hee hee hee. Joe and I are celebrating in a couple weeks by getting a room at The Lakeside Inn for two nights. That should be reeeeeeally nice! Other than that, who knows... maybe I should have a slumber party!! And we can watch scary movies all night long and eat way too many rice krispie treats!!

Do the Shuffle!

Ah yes... I remember fondly back in the 70's when I was living in Chile and I fronted a neo-prog-politico band called Noche de Brujas. We followed Alejandro Jodorowsky religiously until his exile... then we disbanded and I was born again in 1975 to a beautiful young lady in Biloxi , Mississippi... or was that all just a sweet, sweet dream?

Oh! Music!!! There has been a lot of talk recently among my friends of music and what they listen too. Truth is, I spend so much time anymore with the kids, PBS and el computero that I have hardly listened to anything of my own in quite some time. There is always, ALWAYS music playing in the haus as soon as Joe comes home so I never feel a lack of it in my life (it is always that way when you live with a musician)and it is always good. So when faced with the question "What music do you listen too lately?" I come up with... hmmm... that group I heard on Sesame Street??!! Wha??!!

So, I am dusting off and juicin' up ye olde ipod... prepare thyself. I am listening to and posting the first ten songs NO MATTER WHAT. I will skip over a band if it has already been played, that is my only stipulation. I'll try to do this regularly... you can learn a lot about someone by what they listen too. I will too.

  1. Deadbeat ~ The Ghastly Ones
  2. Sally Goodin' ~ Woody Guthrie
  3. Happy Hunting Ground ~ Sparks
  4. Jim ~ Sarah Vaughan & Clifford Brown
  5. When You Were Mine ~ Prince
  6. Shackles And Chains ~ Steppenwolf
  7. The Cowboy Disciple ~ Frank Pahl
  8. This Little Monkey ~ The Demolition Doll Rods
  9. Lojack Leviathan ~ The Shapeshifters
  10. Vegetable Friend ~ Robyn Hitchcock

I am only listing the songs, not the album. Seriously, who would have thought that the single would make its triumphant return and become a mainstay again?! Whatever happend to the conceptual album! Could Frank Zappa or Captain Beefheart get a record contract on a major label these days? Probably not... if they did put out an album... Phish would most likely be the ones to produce it. And, it would be awesome, but only music geeks like my husband and I would listen to it!

Have fun diggin' in if you so choose!! I'll post another playlist next week! Groove on!

xoxo~ Your favorite dweeb

Happy V~oodoo Day!!!

~Happy Valentines Day ~

I hope my little ones get over the creeping crud so we can play this week. Oh! How my Rowan loves to celebrate the "Love Days"!! I am thinking we will be having a heart shaped cookie baking day to send to school, and we always like to make pom-poms together to give as gifts (something she has done for a couple years now of her own accord..). I got her this awesome heart shaped pom-pom maker, so that will make it even more magical for her... :)

Not to much excitement going on around here latley... just a bit o' cabin fever. I am so ready for spring right now. And, truly, it hasn't been the longest or worst winter this year, I am just soooo over it! Ugh! And if my little ones get sick one more time... I swear! I NEVER had this when we homeschooled, my kids were so healthy and happy!!

On a happier note... my ever-lovin' momma got me a beautiful new camera for my combined Christmas/birthday presents (I can't belive I'm going to be 35 in two weeks... eek!). I am over the moon about this one!!! Its a Canon Powershot SX20 IS... and it is soooooo nice! I am going to dig in and see what this baby can do. My blog and shop will be looking so nice!! And, most importantly, I will finally be able to snap pictures of the kids that aren't a total fuzzy mess! Oh! The cuteness to come!! lol...

Have a good week everyone!!!
Love lots and often!!!
