#1: Milo Greene, “1957”. I can’t get enough of this song or this band. Haunting, dreamy, and nostalgic. Makes me want to write a story. And the whole album has me quite entranced. Check it out. One reviewer said, “like roots rock has been mixed together with dream pop.” Yes! A bit short for $9, […]

He clapped after every song, and in the middle of them, and he sang along, improvising with his own two-year-old lyrics. I didn’t even know she was playing around here until I saw it on […]
Two random things. First, is it some kind of biological hardwiring that at not even two years old, my boy child likes to crash his toy trucks into each other? And second, there is a Google ad at the top of my Gmail page to Meet Vampire Guys: www .GothScene.com Meet Local Vampire Guys Near […]
