some of my favorite songs of 2009

Tegan and Sara "Don't Rush," doesn't sound anything like I thought they would on this song. I just heard this for the first time earlier this month and I love it.

Depeche Mode is one of my all time favorite bands as most people know. This song/video blew my socks off when I first heard it earlier this year. I got to see them play again back in August and it was in fact, awesome.

It is no secret that I've been on a bit of a Lady Gaga kick recently and really think "The Fame Monster" was one of the most pleasent surprises of 2009. Almost every song on it has the potential to be a monster at radio. Plus this video? Insanely cool.

Happy Holidays

So I've been lacking a little holiday spirit this year for many reasons, mostly that Christmas isn't really my thing to begin with but money, being busy and it just not feeling like Christmas hasn't helped much either.

But yesterday I got a Christmas Miracle of being able to shop for my family and a few of my friends and today I went out and picked up a few things and I am feeling a little less doom and gloom about the holiday season than I was last week.

I know Christmas isn't about presents but it does make me feel good to be able to make the people in my life that I love know that I appreciate them and love them as well.

In case you don't hear from me until after the holidays (yeah right, I'm a total blabbermouth) have a safe and wonderful Christmas.

Brittany Murphy

Yesterday I read the very sad news of Brittany Murphy's passing online before I headed out for the day. I have to say the news weighed on my mind pretty much all day even though I didn't know her at all. I was however a fan, and I wondered what happened that could have caused this.

Last night I came home and watched "Clueless" for the first time since high school graduation and was surprised I'd forgotten just how cute and funny she is in that movie. And then I realized how many movies that I own and love that she's in like "Sin City," and "Girl Interrupted," and just how sad the whole thing was.

This morning I was online trolling twitter and saw that Jojo had posted this video and I'd never seen it before and liked it so much that I figured I'd share it with you.

Why yes that is Brittany singing. I never knew that she did that. Plus how gorgeous is she in it? So freakin' sad.

I'm ready for 2009 to take a big hike already. This year is depressing.

how did they get a picture of me at the Grad

I mean really? That game yesterday was a cluster and a half. Painful to watch. I think I might be breaking up with the Hawks until next year. Maybe....

my iPhone and me, a love love relationship

I just got a new app for my iPhone that I am in love with. It takes regular iPhone pictures and turns them in to "polaroids" which is endlessly awesome to me. It also changes the quality of the photo to be more like the old instant cameras. I've been playing with it all day and figured, why not share some of the stuff I've made

The original of this was taken sometime over the summer.

A few months ago I had a glass of wine up on a neighbors deck, this is when the original of this shot was taken.

life has no meaning

It turns out my BFF Hello Kitty is lending her image to the horrendous Snuggie.

I have no words to describe my abject disappointment on this subject.

blowing minds one at a time

A few years ago my friend Tristan came back from a trip to some country where he didn't have cell service and proceeded to tell me about a mythical song called "Atomic Food," which we promptly youtubed to find and play with until we were basically stupider than when we started.

Fast forward to the year 2009. I am working in a building with a pop/top 40 station in it and we play this Akon song called "Sexy Bitch," or "Sexy Chick," if you're doing the radio edit.

As it turns out... yes in fact that is the same David Guetta. My mind is blown up this morning. Long live the internet for giving me this information!

scenes from the radio world

Jojo and Donelle reading a commercial for me in the production studio

T-Rawk, Donelle and I at Marti's in SLO after work. I do believe we are the Fly Girls, except for Donelle, who is a boy

I don't know what he said, but I can guess, I'm sure.

I love that I love the people I work with. It makes going to work extra fun.

Raining again

Not that you can tell from this picture of the building next door, but it's raining pretty hard here in SLO today. Loud enough I can hear it through my studio window. It also appears to make the airplanes taking off next door louder and angrier. Interesting.

Strange things you find

So earlier today I was cleaning all the various little slips of paper and crap out of my purse during my break at work and I found a business card I had picked up during my trip home to visit my folks. I had sort of forgotten about it, but it turns out I had a conversation and a drink with a guy that runs a porn website.

Yeah. A porn website, with a name I can't even repeat here!

For the record he was super nice and didn't talk to me about anything other than promotion and radio, but still kind of funny to think I sat at the bar with my dad and some dude that runs a porn website over the holidays.

The thing you should take away from this story is that my life, it's never boring.

I am not on board with this

These just scare me. I'm not voting Team Snuggie at all.

i went home for the holidays

Sorry I haven't been posting, I was gone to see some family. So here are some images....

Me and two old school radio friends of mine The Real Bruce Wayne and Joe Brown

The parents

My cat Azriel who not only loves the Boston Red Sox, he also only loves my dad. Which is why he doesn't live with me.
Central Coast wines in the Valley.

My favorite self portrait as of late. This is another of my dad's cats, Cheddarbob who is a love whore and probably an allergists worst nightmare. This is also the blog debut of my new haircut from the lovely Erika at Cost Cutters in SLO.
