It's Friday So It's Dance Party Machine Time

Last Friday KROQ's Kevin and Bean show had a dance party machine instead of their usual programming. Since that was so much fun for a Friday I thought I'd share a dance party machine playlist for your listening pleasure. What would you add to this list?  1. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby ...more

If your son invites you to a concert... go!

Mother's Day gift this year?  A cross country flight to visit my son at college.  He was a fun and gracious host, enthusiastically introducing me to roommates, friends and teachers.  Best part? Front-row seat at his a cappella concert. The music was magical and brought me to tears.  So if you get an invite to visit your adult child's world... go for it.  Here is a taste of what I so richly enjoyed: http://voqel.com/i/1891   ...more

It is the end...

The end of the school year is approaching rather quickly and I am not sure I am ready for it. Last year around this time, I had to say goodbye to a couple coworkers that I truly cherish and it has been so very hard this year without them. It truly has. There are always changes as a teacher. Each year is different. However, when you work with people that make you laugh, make you think, and can be yourself around..it is so hard to be without them. Every single day I miss them still and it  has been months and months. This year, I will say goodbye to even more coworkers....more

MICHAEL JACKSON'S "XSCAPE," A MOC PREVIEW/SOULTRACKS.COM REVIEW LINK

 ……For a posthumous release, Xscape is actually worth the ends, giving us the chance to contrast the unvarnished versions of eight songs that were completed during multiple Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and Invincible recording sessions that, for one reason or another, failed to make the final track lists. Some of those song omissions were probably more about changing tastes or whims, as Michael was (in)famous for, because most of them are enjoyable even in their minimalist demo-type form....more

Eurovision 2014: And the winner is...

 Austria (the country without Kangaroos). Thank you Conchita Wurst, who represent ed the country at the Eurovision Song Contest. The song, though not brilliant, was better than many of the others presented, having a message that was powerful and clear for everyone who listened to the lyrics.  After watching the Contest program with friends last night, I had originally decided on a very different and perhaps more amusing essay to celebrate Austria’s first win since 1966. I was going to base it on a remark from one of the friend about it being a “James Bond” song. I have changed my mind since then. ...more
