What’s crackalakin is my new favourite fordism. Interestingly enough that word – fordism – wants to auto-correct to cordial! I guess to be cordial with fordial you’d need to have a Mickey tuckered into your armpit and be rubbing his belly cooing about the economic savings while he packs the bowl and lights it (or […]
Have you ever walked the streets of London. On a day when it hasn’t quite rained, but it sure looks like it will. Up ahead in the sky there is a wash of light grey cloud. Behind you go the rows of red brick brownstones, corner pubs, cobblers and candy shoppes. And you walk and […]

It is literally a large sandbank. Looks beautiful. The Acorn are from Ottawa and formed in 2003. This video really reminds me of some […]
I love this song, and this band that I heard about from a friend that instagram-video’d their amazing guitar work from an Austin City Limits show last week. Sitting with toes dipped in the covered pool, where I nearly fell into last winter on one of the chilled icy nights. I could throw this on […]
What am I doing on a Saturday meowing? Meowing? Yes. I am new ping my voice at a vocal lesson. The #1 tip that she gave me right off the bat was to root through your feet and switch from the head voice to chest voice singing the same line over talland over. Mindfully horizontal. […]
