Thursday Throwdown: Jan 14, 2021

This Monday (5 days hence) it’s Blue Monday. I didn’t even know this was a thing until last year. Blue Monday is a (fabricated by the Travel Industry) holiday? Day of observation? Lets go with gimmick, shall we? Blue Monday is a (fabricated by the Travel Industry) gimmick that purports that the third Monday is […]

Thursday Throwdown: Jan 7

Well, welcome to 2021, friends! In Ontario, we’re in a quarantine lockdown again. Christmas and the end of the year was quiet and slow. I’ve had a few days off earlier this week, and I’m ready to wade into 2021 in full stride. And wading totally requires some tunes, amirite?

Thursday Throwdown: October 22

I don’t have much in the way of an introduction (or rationale, which might be the more accurate word here, really). I was on vacation last week, and as I puttered around, a few of these songs showed up on either Sirius radio in the truck, or on my music playlist. So here you go.

Thursday Throwdown: Welcome to September!

These songs have nothing to do with the calendar month. As we discussed a few weeks ago, this is going to be a (mostly) “What I’m listening to this week” feature, sprinkled randomly with themes because sometimes I can’t help myself. So… September. I’m just happy that it’s finally September. Soon I’ll be wearing tights […]
