PLAYLIST: Summertime is Sweet

This is my “Summertime is Sweet” mix and it includes songs celebrating the ease of summer and the joy of candy, sweets and ice cream. Summer-themed songs and summer references pepper this music mix and celebrate the joy in the happiest and hottest season of the year. The ice cream songs are from the music […]

PLAYLIST: Road Trippin’

PLAYLIST: Road Trippin’

My friends and I used to take some pretty epic road trips. We would roll up a couple joints, cruise over the Golden Gate Bridge in my ’89 Chevy Celebrity and wind our way up the Pacific Coast Highway blasting these songs as we drove off to somewhere we had never been before. When we […]

PLAYLIST: Yoga Mix – Music to Get Your “Om” On

I know it’s not the purest approach, but I love doing yoga to good music. I wish I could find a meditative state the organic way, and sit in utter silence while clearing out all the crappy negative thoughts residing deep in the recesses of my unconscious, and sometimes conscious, mind. I have double the […]

PLAYLIST: Veronica Dee’s Psychedelic Trip

Drugs make us listen to all kinds of music. Some is really good and some you can’t really get into unless you’re on drugs. I don’t have any set playlist for when I’m on psychedelics but I have found a favorite to listen to in an odd way. When I was eighteen, I took a […]

PLAYLIST: The Summer Chill

June 22 marked the first day of summer. So, while that might not mean much more than hotter weather while you work, it’s worth it to plan to get out. Get together with your friends, put together some great summertime recipes, and put this mix on in the back. It’s the perfect blend of everything […]

PLAYLIST: Tough Bitches

This is a long ode to all the women in music who have either directly or inadvertently redefined feminism, allowed us to express ourselves or paved the way for more women in popular culture. Some of this may surprise you. This list covers 100 years of recorded music and we feel we hit a lot […]

PLAYLIST: Best Songs About HelLA

PLAYLIST: Best Songs About HelLA

PHOTO: Banksy Los Angeles is that place we all love to hate. It’s hot, plastic, polluted, has arguably the worst police force in the nation and the birthplace of all the things we are obsessed with but pretend to detest: porn, celebrities, plastic surgery and reality television. It’s hard not to get depressed while looking around you […]

PLAYLIST: Introspective New Wave

PLAYLIST: Introspective New Wave

By “new wave” we don’t mean “new wave.” In this case, new wave refers to tracks that are just well… different. They genre melt, they sometimes don’t make sense, but somehow they are all linked through introspection-inducing melodies. From Radiohead’s melancholy post-industrialist reflections on consumerism to the smooth sexy dripping beats of The xx, this […]

PLAYLIST: Music Muse

PLAYLIST: Music Muse

Ernest Hemingway once said “write drunk, edit sober.” I find that in order to really write passionately sometimes this old adage is true, but also requires music in the background. Writing for me is like a dance, or great sex. Slow, methodical, pounding out words with music that makes me at once happy and sad. […]
