My very first love was music. Before there was Shaun Cassidy, before John Schneider, before Ralph Macchio. I have opined more than once about my love of Steely Dan, and really, if you think about it, my first love was Rikki (don't lose that number.) I will assume you haven’t been around forever, and didn’t read … Continue reading Twisted Mix Tape #MiddleSchoolAwkward – Jr High in the 80s
the Time I Almost Tweeted John Cusack or When Reality Infiltrates Fantasy
Insomnia will do funny things to your brain. I know. I've had a lot of experience with it. Last night in my insomniatic fugue state I had an imaginary conversation with John Cusack. In my head it all started with a tweet. @JohnCusack did you ever hang out at No Exit over on Glenwood … Continue reading the Time I Almost Tweeted John Cusack or When Reality Infiltrates Fantasy

Twisted MixTape Tuesday 15
