Summer Style Staple: The Rock Tee

If there’s one thing you need in your summer wardrobe aside from your favorite floral dress, it’s a really good broken in rock tee. When I first started wearing them I was a littel self-concious, worried that I woudl look awkward or peopel might start questioning me what my favorite song was of the band… More »

WORKING LATE ……. BARBER SHOP IN MY TOWN circa 1930’s

This barber shop is a long time staple in my town I think it opened in 1939 and it’s still here and with the same family running it. I hope it never goes out of business !! View in full size Buzznet is still all screwed up and the changes they have promised have not… More »

Um, could Cara Delevingne get any more perfect? The 22-year-old British supermodel-turned-actress (whose movie Paper Towns is top of my list of movies to see this year) is one of the…


WE LOST A GREAT MAN ……. JOE COCKER SADLY DIED TODAY DECEMBER 22nd

I remember seeing Woodstock back in August of 1969, I wasn’t there but living in New York where it was held brought back many memories hearing about the huge traffic jams of the hundreds of thousands of people trying to get to the farm in upstate NY to witness Woodstock. There never was another concert… More »


VINTAGE ARTIST OF THE MONTH …… BILLY JOEL, PIANO MAN 1970’S

Music videos in the 1970’s didn’t really exist at least not good ones. The original one for this song Billy Joel’s first single record was made in 1973 I’m not sure when this version was made but either in the late 70’s or mid 80’s. I choose Billy Joel for this month because I actually… More »



VINTAGE ARTIST OF THE MONTH …… DON MCLEAN singing ” VINCENT ” STARRY STARRY NIGHT

Don McLean is an American singer, this song Vincent is about the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh. I think this was from the early 1970’s


VINTAGE BAND OF THE MONTH ……… THE ZOMBIES, TIME OF THE SEASON 1968

I’m sure most of you have heard this song but in case some of the younger people haven’t this is an iconic band from the 60’s they are from the UK and started in 1962 and lasted until 1968. Growing up in the 60’s was quite a TRIP 😀


VINTAGE BAND OF THE MONTH ….. THE DOORS, WHEN YOU’RE STRANGE

I thought I would post a Vintage band of the month before June is over. The Doors are an American band known for their crazy lead singer Jim Morrison. I believe this video was made in 1967. Jim Morrison died in 1971 at the age of 27 and he joined the 27 Club for singers… More »



Vintage-Inspired Bathing Suits: Grandma Chic or Plain Old Frumpy?

If there’s anything that proves that you don’t have to show skin to be trendy at the beach, it’s the recent fashion influx of vintage-inspired bathing suits. Celebs like Bella Thorn, Cher Lloyd and Taylor Swift have all been spotted sporting the look, but is it better left to grandma? A couple years ago, if… More »


VINTAGE ARTIST OF THE MONTH …….. CAT STEVENS …….. FATHER AND SON

I have mixed feelings about picking Cat Stevens as my pick for the month because he is no longer that person. Cat Stevens was born in London as Steven Demetre Georgiou in 1948. He is now named Yusuf Islam and there are many people here that have bad thoughts towards him. But he is going… More »

VINTAGE ARTIST OF THE MONTH …… DAVID BOWIE, SPACE ODDITY 1969

VINTAGE BAND OF THE MONTH …….. THE ROLLING STONES

It’s been 50 years since The Rolling Stones have been together. One of my favorite songs of theirs is Sympathy For The Devil. I just love this version from 1969 at Hyde Park the people in the crowd are so amazing and Mick of course is as thin as a twig and still is to… More »

I had to start off 2014 with the most iconic band in history. After watching many different videos I picked “Let It Be” it’s just a nice peaceful song 😀


ARTIST OF THE MONTH …….. BOB DYLAN in 1964 at the NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL

I just love how young and shy looking Bob is in this video. The Newport Folk Festival took place in Newport Rhode Island starting in 1959 and still continues to this day. They did take a break from in in the 70’s but I think it’s now called the Newport Music Festival. Notice the crowd… More »


I WAS HERE 50 YEARS AGO WHEN OUR PRESIDENT WAS ASSASSINATED ……. NOVEMBER 22ND 1963
