song of the day - “Holiday” | THE OTHER ONES | 1987.

Every once in a while, someone who knows me from my little 80s radio program, STUCK IN THE 80s (on WMPG community radio in Portland, Maine) will come up and ask me, “Why the 80s?”  My usual go-to response is, “The 80s keep me young, especially the music.”  I could do a series of blog posts about downright fun songs from the 80s, and I’d be at it for years.  329 more words

Jeffrey would ask that in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Donald Trump.

The Other Ones

Enter 2016

On 48 hours I’ve managed to leave house twice (for food, chips & ice cream), watched 8 episodes of Game of Thrones, listened to Spotify Weekly playlist three times, had two dates cancelled (All odds on the Wednesday date will happen AND rock – insert anxious smiley!), been drinking 3 liters of thea, 0,5 l coffee, smoked NO cigarettes (hence the ice cream), drinking NO alcohol (hence the chips and date cancelling), had NO showers, NO workout (sucks), looked at 3 job offers, researched apartments in Sydhavnen which led to a search on houseboats, which led to giving up on finding new apartment. 124 more words
