That Guster, by The KTA

About a week ago, I was supposed to see one of my most faaaaaavorite bands with some of my faaaaaaaavorite people, The KTA and Ian C. Anderson.

That Long Weekend Binge: Younger

That Thoughtful Playlist

Do you guys know Chuck? He’s my wife’s husband… Worst day of my life. #jk …not to mention a very dapper dude (just look up!) who’s always hilariously culturally on point (99% of what I know about my iPhone and the best ways to get lost in the internet is from him). He can lift enormous […]

That Left Hook

What would you rather do than go to the gym? Watch wild bunnies fall for gently bred fur-ladies? Create your own Victorian wig? Go Back to the Future in 60 seconds? Yeah, me too. But I’m glad I threw down my phone and hit the boxing club tonight–that’s Sorabella Training Center in Waltham, Mass. Conditioning classes […]
