Hallowed Ground

I have been wanting to post since before the bombings, procrastinated, and now feel compelled to write about the place I spent the majority of my life. I was supposed to go home to Boston Thursday night for my grandmother’s 87th birthday. After the bombings on Monday at the Boston Marathon, I decided it was … Continue reading

An Interview with Bareto

Today, I have in store for you something brand new to my blog and something I am super excited about sharing with you! (Exclamation point!) Someone actually thought my blog was cool enough to let ME do an interview with Latin Grammy-Nominated Bareto,  who recently just played at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, … Continue reading

I Feel It

It’s been a pretty chilly winter so far in NYC, but let’s relish in the good news: the sunlight is just starting to creep past 5:00pm, and February is already almost halfway over (almost) (#BYE!). I’ve already had the luxury of an unstoppable start to 2013, with an insane Pretty Lights New Year’s Eve show, … Continue reading

See Ya, 2012

With another year coming to a close owning this thang I like to call spinmuse, I wanted to write a 2012 wrap-up post of top jams from this year, because YOU, dear spin enthusiasts, are worth it. How are you all? I miss you guys… in brief: NYC/my new career is my dream come true, … Continue reading

Disco Decorating Fever

The title of this post is indicative of, embarrasingly enough, how I have just spent the past… 4 hours.  I don’t have a fever, but I’ve been on a bit of a disco kick, and on a mission to decorate this sort-of-lived-in-apartment in New York City that I now call “home.” For months, since moving … Continue reading

Hanging On

Before I get to some tunes… A public service announcement from your old pal. Birthdays are weird. Some years, you can’t wait for the big day to come; other years, you dread that awful feeling of getting older.  Birthdays are a time for reflection, whether you realize it or not.  They make you think about … Continue reading

The Power of Words and Music

I know; I miss you, too. I have not had a hot minute to even think about blogging since I’ve been in NYC between work, friends, a mini-vaca, a death in the family, and not to mention the lack of internet, cable, a couch, a real trash can (all minor details).  But we did just … Continue reading

I’m Alive

A lot has happened since we last spoke. I was in my quaint apartment in Boston, temporarily unemployed, listening to about 10 hours of music a day whilst (is this a real word?) packing, driving, or working out. NOW?! I’m in a swanky lounge in my luxury apartment building (more on this in a moment), … Continue reading

Music Roundup, Inspired by Unemployment

So it’s day 3 of unemployment. I start my new job on the 9th, so I have some time to get everything under the sun taken care of before I move. So far, everything has fallen into place so smoothly that it completely feels too good to be true (insert anvil falling from the sky … Continue reading

The Last Waltz

Spotify (Tomorrow May Never Come…) Spotify (Rill Rill) (source) Last week, we lost a music legend.  Levon Helm of The Band passed away after a long battle with throat cancer.  I won’t lie when I say that I cried a little when I saw on his website the note from his family about him being … Continue reading
