New Music Tuesday – Walk The Moon – Talking is Hard

Already this week I've given you 11 great new tracks from local, Denver artists that made it into Hometown for the Holiday, but I couldn't resist sharing this album with you all as well. Walk The Moon's Talking is Hard came out over a week ago, but I can not stop listening to it. This was the perfect album to get me through the short flight to Salt Lake City last week, and I'm sure it will make its way into my playlist when I fly to New York later this week. So far my favorite song is track number 4, Up 2 U. I love ...

Wantable – Intimates Box

By Monday, November 24, 2014 0 Permalink 0

By now you've come to know my love of Stitch Fix boxes. What you don't know is how often I buy things online. Working from home (both with my old job, and with my current) allows me to be home for all of the shipments (and darn signatures that UPS enforces). Not sure if it is laziness or convenience, but I truly enjoy trying items on in the comfort of my own home, especially shoes! I often buy 2 sizes from Zappos so I can try them on as I stand at my desk during the day to determine comfort. I'm also curious about all of ...

FitBit Force versus Jawbone Up24

By Wednesday, November 5, 2014 2 Permalink 0

I'm in a fight with FitBit. I have been for awhile now. I bought the Force last year, (yes, the one that was recalled), and was SO excited to use it! I wanted to track steps during SXSW, work trips, conferences, music festivals and just daily life. I specifically picked the Force for a few reasons, but the main reason I picked the Force over the FitBit Flex because the Flex didn't have a display, even though it was thinner. I loved that the Force band showed different features like the time, steps, stairs and more. Another big reason was because many of friends had FitBits and ...

Foo Fighters Sonic Highways Premiere on HBO

By Friday, October 17, 2014 1 Permalink 0

Wow. There really are no words for the first episode of Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways. It was amazing. Made even more amazing because today is the 20th anniversary of Dave Grohl going into a studio and recording the first Foo Fighters album. I loved how Sonic Highways reviewed the history of Chicago music starting with blues and transitioning to punk, showed the Foo Fighters' process of recording songs like Something From Nothing and interviewed people who were so influential in the formation of Foo Fighters and their songs. The end of Sonic Highways was my favorite as the band played Something From Nothing with Dave's lyrics superimposed ...

Heading to Ireland for Christmas!

By Thursday, October 9, 2014 1 Permalink 0

It seems a tradition has started in the McMahon household: traveling for the Christmas holiday! A month after we got married we headed to Mexico with my family for Christmas in Mazatlan. Last year we spent Christmas Day traveling from Minneapolis to Denver, and this year we are headed to Ireland for Christmas. This will also be our first actual vacation. We've travelled before, but always been with or visiting our families, so this will be our first actual vacation (although I will meet his extended family in Dublin, but that won't be the reason for the travel, so I'm not going to count it :p). ...

New Music Tuesday – Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness

By Monday, October 6, 2014 0 Permalink 0

Andrew McMahon is one of my favorite singer/performer/artist and has been since High School. I've been lucky to meet him on many occassions, and see him perform countless times. He's coming back to Colorado at the end of October with his newest iteration, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Slowly he is releasing new songs from the album that will be released on October 14th, and I discovered he put them on all SoundCloud the other night when I was searching for songs to listen to on my drive home from Denver. Yesterday he also put out a preview of his whole new album on Billboard and ...
