We’d like to thank you so much for taking the time to listen in so far, and this is just the beginning! Today we’re joined by our amazing friends Ashley and Chris to talk about some heavyweight topics:
Experiences in dog fostering.
Hamilton! Finally we can catch up on the musical’s lasting impressions.
Do yourselves a favor and watch the Alejandro Sanz documentary on Netflix. I was hoping for some background noise while I worked on some projects at home, and that was a horrible mistake: It was wonderful and I got nothing done! Low-key, this man has been a massive influence on my creativity. He was one of the first musicians who made me aware of the power of character and storytelling capable in song. growing up in Mexico in the early 90s, he mainstreamed his way across the world while always maintaining his musical roots. I loved the way the documentary shed light on his beginnings and his father, who was also a musician in Spain. Got really emotional listening to some of those songs. Wonderful to listen to a songwriting master after a long while…
I stumbled on a family project that rings so true that I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner. Madd and I are going to start a childhood journal for our son. I have documented some happenings in my own journals and notes, but to have something specifically for his memories and milestones written like journal entries from his mother and father, will make a great gift when he’s older. After a little bit of searching, I found The Lee Valley Everyman’s Journal. It looks sturdy and straightforward and ready for a long run on our shelves after all is said and done. I can’t wait to start working on this!
First episode of the new Creative Drive Podcast goes up this weekend! Keep an ear out for some great content!!!
For now, check out this week’s episode of Our Kid’s Asleep, where Madd and I delve into Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera and This is Important to Me Podcast!
On this go round, we discuss The Butchering Art by Lindsey Fitzharris. An insanely savage book about Joseph lister and the quest to change Victorian medicine. Brought to you by Maddie!
We thought we’d share some thoughts on our favorite Christmas Movies of days past as well as some Christmas favorites from this year. Recent titles include Noelle, The Christmas Chronicles, and old favorites such as Home Alone, The Santa Clause, and more!
Of course, this being an inbetween episode, we’d like to share some of our own New Year Resolutions, as well as to say THANK YOU, to all of you who’ve taken time to listen and support this fun project of ours.
How about a throwback to the early 2000s chatting about Steven Soderbergh’s superior remake of Ocean’s Eleven. We spoil the hell out of this one, so if you haven’t seen a 20+ year old film, we apologize.
We bring back the uplifting news headline and bring you some well needed joy around these parts!
And raving about a new concert opportunity, can’t wait! Thanks for joining us as we continue our experiment!
