Okay, so it’s actually Tuesday, so sue me. I thought I’d shift gears and speed things up, but still stick with female vocals (simply more interesting to me, usually). So, here are three of the less raucous cuts from the latest album (The Woods) by the Portland, OR riot grrrl legends Sleater-Kinney. They must have […]

Safa the Genie The make-up makes the costume, and brings out Safa’s Tunisian part. I’d argue that her Italian part comes out as well, even though I don’t think they have genies in Italy.


Shut Up & Sing

Not that I watch TV much nor listen to The Dixie Chicks (by choice) at all (I will buy their latest album now, however), but the latest flap involving them and their exercising of free speech rights has me wanting to boycott all NBC programming. Apparently, NBC has refused to air commercials advertizing The Dixie […]


My Daughter, The Inventor

In Encore (an enhanced learning program in Nashville), Safa is involved in a unit on inventions. She and her classmates have been engaged in exercises that encourage brainstorming, promote problem-solving, and incite creative thinking. Some of the written work she’s brought home from these exercises are very fun to read; I’m amazed by the things […]

Hand, writing

On the way back from class today I came across a slip of paper with some intriguing handwriting, done in a henna-like ink. It strikes me as a rare jewel, for who writes by hand anymore? What makes this find especially uncanny is that it happened no later than 45 seconds after I had just […]


Appreciate what you have

This came in to GoyaHQ from Jen at GoyaRecon (thanks!). That you have the means to access, view, and read it means you’re among the top 3% of the world who can: The Miniature Earth Project. UPDATE: SE (Special Edition?) at GoyaRecon 2 linked these in the comments (thanks!), but I thought they should be […]


Music Monday: Fiel Garvie

New Goyatunes concept, as long as I can keep up with it: I post a few faves or whatever I’m listening to lately, rotating them every Monday. That’s it. Let’s call it something creative and original like “Music Monday.” For better or for worse, I’m still Mazzy Star-ish lately (with no end in sight) and […]
