Umbrella Funeral

Poor Canadians in Brooklyn, they bypassed the beautiful spring weather and got here just in time for a winter backtrack and monsoon weather.

Opening Day: Coney Island

I have some Canadians staying with me in Brooklyn. They are the opposite of high-maintenance, very laid back and nice to have in the living room.

Hangover Daze

This is the perfect song to that cold Saturday morning to combat that headache, cottonmouth and general stupor.

Sunny Afternoon

Ahhhh it’s so nice out! This is ridiculous and much-needed, and if you know me at all you know that I can talk about the weather, pretty much forever. It ebbs and flows like my moods, like the times. And I love when it matches my inner landscape perfectly.I’ll curl up in the . . . → Read More: Sunny Afternoon

Leprechaun Shit

Our wily pals at Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting caught a wee Leprechaun! The fact that it’s late on St. Paddy’s and you’re probs already hammered (I hope) should make this even better. I am so ready for some . . . → Read More: Leprechaun Shit
