i can't help it. i love pop music. it doesn't have to be deep or even make sense…sometimes a good beat and a catchy hook is all i need...
Check out this Mashup from DJ Earworm, combining all the monster hits from 2013...
I love this song. It's been in my workout mix for a while, but this live version is just as good!
I agreed, back in the summer, to run the Lifetime Turkeyday 5k on Thanksgiving morning. Then, the night before, as i'm prepping the next day's big feast, i began to kick myself for having said yes. A. Getting up early on such a busy day...boo. and B. There was still so much to do before everyone got to our house!
But, i had given my word, and so, on Thanksgiving morning, at 5:45AM, i got out of bed, got dressed in a million layers, and drove downtown.
...and i am SO glad that i did! it was AWESOME! There were so many people there, of so many different ages and walks of life. The energy was electric, and the city looked beautiful. Breathing in that cool air, running past the stone arch bridge, and Gold Medal Park, and all along the streets of downtown Minneapolis...it was envigorating!
Back in early November, i asked our Cities97 listeners for yummy, tried and true recipes that would be a big hit on Thanksgiving. And, on Turkey day, i have to say, those recipes didn't disappoint. The Crock Pot Stuffing, specifically, was a huge hit.
Then, on Black Friday, something i've been working on for a big chunk of this past year, finally came out. My new EP, Softer Place to Land. My song, "Make Me Crazy", off the Cities97 Sampler Vol 25, is a track on my new EP, and i am so relieved that it's finally finished and out there! To be able to hold it in my hands, share it with the world...there's nothing like it.
I hope YOUR Thanksgiving was everything you wanted it to be! Happy holidays, everybody!
