BOTB Results: "Somewhere Only We Know"


What can I say? It wasn't even close. Darren Criss came through with two votes (but you have to admit, the dude can wail!) and Lily Allen tossed aside that sweet, fragile persona and slaughtered him in this battle.

Battle of the Bands: Somewhere Only We Know





Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's one of my guilty pleasures:

 THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS!

This music blogging event was first introduced by our friends, Fae and Stephen, and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":

Our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th.  The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. That's when I return, total all of the votes, including mine (if necessary), and announce the winner. 

Everyone has a guilty pleasure and I'm no exception. In fact, I've got more than a few musical "guilty pleasures;" those songs I really don't expect equal enthusiasm or many high-fives for them...nor do I care (Insert grumpy old man: "Chick tunes! Who let her in the battle of the bands? This is a manly place!").

BOTB Results: Tumbing Dice


So close!  Stones 6, Ronstadt 8...the rooster is defeated (is that any way to treat the elderly, I ask you?).

Battle of the Bands: Tumbling Dice


What's happening? What's that noise? The crowd is going wild! Why all the excitement? Ladies and gentlemen, this is THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS!

This music blogging event was first introduced by our friends and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":

Our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th.  The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. That's when I return, total all of the votes, including mine (if necessary), and announce the winner. 

Hubzam, Gonzo, and I are claiming to have emerged victorious from The Summer That Nearly Broke Our Will to Survive as we conquered scholarships, graduation, surgery, physical therapy, selling our house and purchasing another house in an 8 week period. Big thanks to the always helpful son #1, Juggernaut, and son #2, Magoo, for lifting above and beyond the call of duty. 

Question of the Month with Michael D'Agostino


Michael D'Agostino of A Life Examined (that sweet thunder-from-down-under) started this blog hop with these words:

"Your readers would like to know a little more about you. Show them who you are by taking part in the Question of the Month bloghop. On the first Monday of each month, we answer the question that gets posted here. Sign up on the list (on Michael's site) to join the fun ;) With every question, remember that the important part is explaining your answer. And please, if you have any suggestions for new questions, share them in the comments section. I bet you've got some great ideas for us."

This month's question is a simple, easy one.
"What's your favourite beach?"
