Forever.

Aw Cary, we sure miss you.  I still have your cell phone number that you scribbled on a piece of paper for me from the Axiom reunion in 2007.  We really wanted you to come visit us.  I had no idea that you were sick, or that that would be our last hug, or that it would be the last time I'd ever see you alive.  Everyone loved you. I'm glad you were my friend.

Just a shot away

I recently randomly watched (again) the Rolling Stones' documentary Gimme Shelter, and I'll tell you what - Mick Jagger's glorious hair, undulating in slow motion under pink stage lights, should seriously get its own separate billing in the credits.  That hair --- was simply mesmerizing and seemed to be its own independent, sentient being.  As grim and depressing as this film is in some parts, there are at least 2 redeeming moments, besides the incredible music: A baby is born at the festival, and the swirling magenta slow mo fantasy dancing of Mick Jagger.

I could watch a full 2 hour movie of just Mr. Jagger and his magnificent hair, slowed down to Koyaanisqatsi speed.  For reals.

Lez Zeppelin

My good friend (and my husband's former bandmate) Leesa is the drummer for this incredible band.  They are as impressive as they are entertaining.  Do not miss a chance to see them!  They will make your blood molecules dance.  Leesa is world class.  Such a treat.

Sheena is a Punk Rocker

The first LP I ever bought with my own money was The Ramones' "Rocket to Russia", when I was in the 8th grade.  No one told me to get it.  I didn't know what it would sound like.  I didn't know who the Ramones were.  I didn't know what punk was.  I just saw the record and impulsively bought it.
Needle dropped, mind blown.  It changed me forever.

Do yourself a favor and watch this video.

Cheek: Drop

I just happen to be married to a true gentleman and prince among men.  But if that wasn't enough, he is a fabulous singer/songwriter and musician.  Here is a link to a song performed by one of his earlier powerpop-rock Texas bands, Cheek.  I'm real fond of their music.

Cheek features Jay Maulsby (voice/guitar), Brett Needham (voice/guitar), Steve Bundrick (drums), and Chris MacFarland (bass).
