I Love Me Some Music

Hmm, time for a trip to the record store?


Yellow Submarine Returning To Theaters

To celebrate the 50th anniversary! This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I’ve see it at least twenty times and still love it completely. For all ages to enjoy too.


In Case Of Fire…

In case of fire, rescue my records. And CDs. And tapes. And music memorabilia. And anything else that has to do with music.


Do you Ever Feel Like This?

Do you ever feel like this? I do.

The 2017 Seattle And Bumbershoot Trip – Part 1

It’s our annual trip to Seattle for the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival. We go every year, since 2001, making this our 17th year in a row. And we love it more than ever. This year our granddaughter Josephine went with us again. Also traveling, our friends Cal, Laura, Marie, Mama O, Aunt Sam, and Margaret.

I’ll post some pictures soon, but first, here’s what we did on our trip.

The Book I Read: It By Stephen King

Yes, he’s the master of horror.

I’ve read over a dozen of his books now, and while some are better than others I enjoyed them all. This is one of the better ones. At 1100 or so pages, it took a while to finish, but even at that length I didn’t find much filler. There was one scene that I didn’t really like but overall I liked it a lot and really got to know and care about the characters. I liked the way he switched back and forth between them as kids and as adults. Sometimes you had to read a bit to know which was which. Clever. And Mr. King was very descriptive with being too long-winded. He really does know how to write.
