Laura & AliOur good friends Kevin & Laura Rupejko came to visit this week for a crazy 4 days of music and fun!  They moved to Colorado a few years ago so it’s always special when we are able to get together.

Laura is one of those amazing women who’s passion and artistry is truly inspiring.  As a songwriter and singer, she can craft a tune that will move you.  As a friend, she is loyal and caring, someone who will always have your back and your best interests at heart.

While Laura was here this week, she stopped in to Royal Jester Studios to record 5 new tracks.  Each was fantastic and I was fortunate enough that she let me record for a bit as well.  The song is called Fantasy Dream.  (Video after the break) Read the rest of this entry »

ipodI’m a huge soundtrack fan.  When a film really gets to me, usually it’s the music that I just can’t get out of my head.  I saw I Am Number Four this weekend.  It wasn’t the most amazing movie I’ve ever seen, but the whole time I just kept thinking, “I NEED to get this soundtrack!”. To my surprise, they didn’t release one, so after having the songs stuck in my head for 2 days, I spent Sunday tracking down the music.

The sweeping orchestration of Adele’s new single, Rolling In The Deep, is by far my favorite song used in the previews and movie itself.  I actually bought her new album, 21, on pre-order in December because her first album, 19, is still on heavy rotation on my iPod. Right As Rain can pull me out of any funk. Read the rest of this entry »

Music make you lose controlI love it when it rains.  It’s monsooning here tonight and although my ride home from work was, well, interesting, I have to say there’s nothing like the sound of raindrops on the window.

Even better is when those little droplets are accompanied by good music.  My husband used to make fun of me, but now he knows that turning the music up as loud as possible in my car and just rocking out for a bit, is one sanctuary not to be messed with.  It’s where I go for inspiration, encouragement, solace, and revitalization. Sometimes, it’s comforting to just be enveloped in sound and let go of the symphony of detailed mental to-do lists buzzing around my mind. Lately, think Flight Of The Bumblebee in double time.

Skim though my iPod and you’ll find an eclectic mix of pop, classical, French rap, chick rock, metal, dance tracks and a healthy serving of Glee recordings.  Playlists with names like “Cupcake”, “Personal Underscore”, “Vitamin Water”, and “I’m a Gleek”.  Each one perfectly suited to the mood of the minute.

So here are some songs that are on heavy rotation right now.   Enjoy!

And thanks to the wonderful man in my life for the sub-woofer and new aux-in cable!  It’s pink and pitch perfect 🙂

Oh Carl, you have stolen a little piece of my heart with that giant head of yours. Ok, this dessert was bigger than his head, but what the heck, you only turn 5 once, right? #connorturns5 #5yearsold #giantsundae #decaf2splendas 🍨 ☕️ 🎂 🎉 #dessertnumber5 All he wanted was "plates on the giant spinner thing that moves with the colors and the tiny cakes." You got it dude. When we sat down, he immediately asked the server, "are you going to sing to me?" 🎶 #connorturns5 🎉 🎂 #5yearsold #rotosushi #revolvingsushi #tastesbetterifitsmoving #dessertnumber4 Pool time #connorturns5 #5yearsold #chipsandguac
