Consistently listed as one of the best Riot Grrl albums, Dig Me Out is my favorite Sleater-Kinney album. It has been a fan favorite since its release in 1997.
I have started to emerge from the doldrums of the last few months. It has been a rough patch, but I am still here. Music, of course, has still provided a great outlet for me. This year has already seen amazing releases from some great long lasting bands. I have also been introduced to some great […]
Internet videos are amazing. We all know this. I am just glad we have massive amounts of funny music videos, crazy cat videos, and weird whatever videos. The expansiveness of the Internet has allowed me to laugh and use that laughter as self-care.
It has been unusually warm here in Seattle this February. It hit close to 65 the other day which means no-coat weather. It also means everyone got to see my awesome new Sleater-Kinney shirt I have been wearing.
It is the annual American tradition of Sportsball Sunday on February 1st. My local team, the Seattle Seahawks, are up against the Evil Empire of the National Football League, the New England Patriots. Tom Brady is Darth Vader and Bill Belichick is the Emperor. Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and the rest of the […]
2014 was kind of shit to a lot of people, me included. While there were some high points, it seemed like 2014 just messed a lot of things up for plenty of people. It felt like a whole year of upheaval. The end of 2014 was especially triggering for me; not only did I feel […]
My wife and I pulled out one of our annual Halloween rituals recently: we watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We both love the movie, and by love, I mean we will do the call backs and throw popcorn even if it’s just the two of us. We started talking about who we would cast if […]
If you follow me on any social media platform, you know since Friday/Saturday I have been squeeing a lot. About a month ago, I found out Sub Pop Records was releasing a career spanning limited edition vinyl box set of Sleater-Kinney. I am a pretty huge fan of Sleater-Kinney, though most of the albums came […]
April has been a tough month. I had one of my worst depressive episodes in the last two years. I struggled to even get out of bed every day. If you know the spoon theory, I was short at least one spoon every day. On the plus side, my struggle felt easier not fighting a […]
Lunchtime Poll: Bands Reunited
With the start of the new year, the music rumors have begun to fly. Every year, people begin to take bets who will play Coachella, which seems to be the reunion kick off spot. Bands that haven’t played together for years get a call from Coachella and they decide to play (or not). This year’s […]
Dig Me Out Of This Open Thread
The other day Sleater-Kinney came up on shuffle. Not only did it send me straight back to 1999/2000 when I was listening to this album non-stop, but it sent me on a Sleater-Kinney kick that just won’t stop. This is probably one of my all time favorite Sleater-Kinney songs, and as with most of the […]
