Important Week

by on Jan.27, 2012, under New Things

well, well, well…this sure has been an important week!

typically days roll into the next without real notice and then all of a sudden it’s the beloved weekend again. and then there are weeks where things actually happen and this has been one of THOSE weeks. we like these weeks because they’re full of interest and are energizing (not unlike a good cup of coffee).

let’s re-cap, shall we:
~demi was hospitalized for “exhaustion”- poor her, cope demi, cope.

~heidi & seal are split up due to HIS anger- poor him cause his anger is fucking things up including his awesomely beautiful wifey and super cute kiddos.

~victoria beckham debuts photo shoot and looks fab 6 mos after baby harper was born- ugh.

~ new band “alabama shakes” shook san diego- we’re lucky they didn’t trigger an earthquake.

and finally…

~we have made the first of more changes to the site-yay for us, our creative juices are flowing and soon your closet will be half-full.

bravo bravo to an important week & cheers to your weekend

Here comes “the shakes”

by on Jan.26, 2012, under Dr. Jimbo's Music Rx, New Things, stuff we like

You might call me a “buzz band” slut. You know the “you HAVE to hear these guys” and the “they’re gunna be huge” bands that you’ve probably never even heard of (or don’t even have an album out yet). Yup, guilty as charged and most often, disapointement. Let down city, population: me. occasionally however, the padres win games and “buzz bands” pan out.

Introducing Alabama Shakes. I decided to check them out last night and sniff out the “buzzzzzz” (and let me tell you its a big one). ROCK SOLID! Led by an absolute powerhouse of a lead singer/guitar pounder, they are a fresh and modern take on a classic sound. Old school soul mixed with pumped up driving grooves and you got it. Not afraid to slow it down either, the shakes keep drive’n while Mrs. Howards voice goes from Janice Joplin to Sharon Jones and back. Of course they still have to release an album (due out in April), but for now the Alabama Shakes rocket rise to fame seems to have some real fuel

Cool-Cat Style

Meet Hollywood. She’s a real “rags to riches” story. She was literally found at 2am by a friend and his 120lb dog in a gutter in, you guessed it…Hollywood.
She was WAY too young to be without her cat mom but none the less survived a couple of human moms (who meant well) for a few weeks before landing with us. So Hollywood now lives a comfortable cat life with all her needs met.
While sorting thru some new jewelry that will be coming to the site in February (yay), Hollywood sauntered in and gave her 2 cents on what she thinks is cool-cat style.
Check out her radical Uvarovite necklace. Like we said: Rags to Riches
