Kayo Dot: Plastic Houses and Empty Rooms

Kayo Dot started showing up on my radar last spring on the casual suggestion of a reader who was a fan of their earlier “avant-metal” work. Then the eye-catching album art for the their upcoming release started inexplicably appearing on my feed,...

Interstellar and Time Away

Regrettably, I haven't documented the trials and triumphs of EJ’s infancy as meticulously as I did her sister P. This is due in no small part to the job hunt, but also because EJ had a little trouble getting off the ground in the beginning. She h...

May Roundup: The Battle Against Colic

I keep saying this: so much has happened and keeps happening that taking time to write meaningful posts devoted to singular albums takes time away from other important things.  My youngest daughter EJ, coming up on three months old, is one of th...

Slow Down

I heard a song the other day that made me cry… And not just the cute, ‘tiny tear drop rolling down the cheek’ type of crying. No, I was full-blown ‘ugly crying’. The type of crying where your face contorts into almost painfully looking expr...

The Birth of EJ and the Litany Against Fear

They say that every birthing experience is different, and I can say that having been there for the birth of both of my daughters, this is inarguably true. The delivery of my second daughter was almost diametrically opposed to that of my first. To s...

Ah, the internet… A place where we can be who we want and reveal only what we want, and showcase our fabulous lives so all of our friends are jealous. That is the sole purpose of the world wide web, right? Seriously, just scroll through any Fac...

Product Review: Pampers Premium Care Pants

The word ‘diaper’ is barely being used any more. The word ‘pampers’ seems to have completely replaced it. That’s because Pampers has beaten every other brand of baby pants out there, in every category. They keep the baby dry. They are so so...

Seeing Some Results: My Brightest Diamond

Since her birth, I have blogged a lot about developing my Little One's musical tastes. This has been staged mostly as a monologue, with me presenting music to her in a structured way and recording her reactions. I have spoken less about her own eme...
