The new man in my life.
04/23/10 at 03:57 PM by Julia Conny

I've had my heart set on a getting a record player for months, and my friend Mike showed up to my place with one in tow on Record Store Day, of all days! Needless to say, I shopped in celebration. I got ....

Okkervil River - The Stand Ins
...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead - Madonna
Rites of Spring - End on End
Liars Academy - No News Is Good News
Andrew Bird - Armchair Apocrypha

This little addition to my life has made me a very happy girl. New speakers are a must.

A Rec and A Bandwagon
03/01/10 at 09:28 PM by Julia Conny
This band, River City Extension, and their upcoming album - The Unmistakable Man - is one of the best things I've heard so far this year. No joke. Please give them a listen. Exclusive lined up soon, hopefully.

Oh yeah, and ask me a question or two. This is kinda fun.

You've Got Me By The Heartstring
02/19/10 at 06:37 PM by Julia Conny
I've whipped up a Five and Alive feature about five of my favorite emotionally connected tunes. You can read it over at Adam's blog.

And the part about "The Shadowlands" making me cry? Truth.

Snowpocalypse 2010
02/10/10 at 05:02 PM by Julia Conny
Cabin fever!

I don't think you guys understand just how bad these snowstorms are on the East Coast. Baltimore is a complete wasteland right now. In fact, the govenor declared a state of emergency. Just this past weekend, 20 to 30 inches blanketed our beloved streets, and then, the literal icing on the cake, we've added 10 to 20 more inches in the past day. Trees and roofs are collapsing from all the snow weight. The problem, besides the quantity and that it has no where to go after the storm passes, is that they haven't even plowed the streets from the last storm.

I know, I know, you Midwestern folks must think we are pussies. Which is exactly true. Hence the reason why we don't know what else to do except freak out and marvel. I've lived in Maryland since I was 4; this is epic for us.

Schools are already out for the whole week, government jobs are closed and even Starbucks is closed. And that takes an apocalyptic event, which this practically is.

I already cleaned the apartment and I after I blast through my email, I may just do my taxes.

What does applesauce have to do with anything?
02/03/10 at 07:42 PM by Julia Conny
I suppose I should update this. I've been out of touch lately.

But truthfully, it's been nice. Refocusing, reevaluating, and just plain organizing. Which, also truthfully, I needed. Additionally, I've been eating a lot of applesauce.

I'm still here, just preoccupied.

Playlist for the past couple weeks: David Bazan and the new record from the The Forecast.

It's The End of the Year, and That Means Lists.
12/22/09 at 10:31 PM by Julia Conny
Stick a fork in me, I'm done.

Our End of the Year Lists are up. And here is my personal list, which - if I can say this much - is BEAUTIFUL. I'm really pleased with my list this year, more than any years in the past. That's probably because 2009 was rock solid in tunes, thwarping 2008. God, I'd hate to be 2010 right now.

Moomie's Big Red Van
12/04/09 at 02:54 AM by Julia Conny
My mom and I started a blog together. Follow? Reblog, maybe?

I'm trying to figure out how much she damaged me as a young adult, and she's trying to figure out why I am such a fuck-up. Not really, but kind of. Actually, we both just love each other so much that we had to take it to the Internet. I am the biggest dork on the planet.
