Game Night: Oh No, Not The Molasses Swamp!

Candyland is the one game I have loved as long as I could remember.

Princess Tadpole totally works, right?

I’m pretty sure it was because I always wanted to be Queen Frostine.  Even Princess Lolly – she was a princess after all.  To be honest, I’m pretty sure that the last time I played the game was within the past three years.  And thank goodness I had my own version of the game from at least the 1980’s, because there have been some changes made.  No more Plumpy!  Queen Frostine became Princess Frostine…but what of Princess Lolly?  Gone the way of Plumpy?  Battling for the crown?  Either way not good.

I dedicate this playlist to her.

I also wanted to rep two awesome shows at The Echo this week:

Leopold and his Fiction – Thursday, April 29 aka TOMORROW (with Lemon Sun and Red Arrow Messenger)

Heartless Bastards – Friday, April 30 (with Hacienda and Amy Cook)

Click here for details.

P.S. This song and video are both AMAZING.  I’m currently listening on repeat. After (by all accounts) tearing it up at SXSW for Spin, Foxy Shazam is a group you MUST check out – if you like rocking out, of course.

The Circle Game: I Won't Grow Up, I Don't Wanna Go To School…

Workout songs were kid stuff.  This week time for a brain stretch trying to put a soundtrack to the stages of life – innocent childhood, angsty adolescence, wise old age – and that tricky spot in the middle where you wake up one day, realize you’re a grown up and have to deal with it.

First up, carefree youth.  Peter Pan chose never to leave here.  Most adults wish they had that option.  Since time machines haven’t been invented yet, here are a few songs both melancholy and whimsical that will bring you back to those blissful times…

Atmosphere “In Her Music Box”

Delta Spirit “Children”

Jack Johnson “Banana Pancakes”

Sia “Playground”

The White Stripes “We’re Going To Be Friends”

Wilco “Just A Kid”

Plus a couple…interesting recommendations “songs have nothing to do with the theme of childhood just MY childhood” Anyone else?

Toni Braxton “You’re Makin Me High”

Collective Soul “December”

And a couple amazing and enchanting videos that got thrown my way today…

In addition to a little bonus that was all over the interwebs today, but is perfectly appropriate for todays theme. Be amazed.  Smile.  Enjoy.
