So we're headed up to Boston this weekend for my show, and taking a little side-trip up to Salem today! Actually, I should be putting things together and packing as I'm typing this, but here I am.
Honestly Halloween is usually one of those things where I go out mid-day, have a coffee, smile at all the cute little kids scampering around in the street, and go home. But this year I felt inspired, and picked up a simple witch hat and broom from Party City. I think I will put together a very Misty Day-like ensemble and be a White Witch..
Hope everyone has a fun & safe Halloween!!

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had some recipes that I never got around to putting up... here's one of them. Now, I know that right now is the time everyone is thinking about cinnamon, apples, pumpkin spice lattes, etc etc...
but... I don't know about you... but I don't really care about drinking/ eating something just because of seasonality. I know that pumpkin spice brings in more page views during this time of year... but durnint. If I like something, I like it! And I make it! Or order it.
And that be that.

Happy Monday! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was good... I ended up hanging out with my friend Louisa, who I haven't seen in forever. And also just having some good quality alone time, you know?
Anyway, I have also been working on this video for the past week or so, which I'm excited to finally show you! It's Part II of my collaboration with Lulu's. I wanted to let you guys hear one of my new songs that will eventually be coming out as part of an EP/ collection.
This audio on this is live... I sang and played through all the parts where you see me with the electric guitar.
ALSO. The items most prominently featured by Lulu's in the video are the sparkly dress and necklace :) Yay!!
Again... I'm not used to putting together videos, so it's not perfect. The audio ended up coming out suuuper soft... so just turn it up a bit when you are watching :)
Thanks guys! I know I've been a bit MIA lately, which I've already discussed at length... I hope you like the video, and there will be more to come in the future!
(By the way, if anyone is in Boston, I'm playing at Gallery 263 this Saturday!! xoxo)

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing an great bunch of folks I've gotten to know recently- the band Penny Louis. They are awesome musicians, lovely people, and they put on a great show (I should know- I played with them a few weeks ago!)
If you are in the city, drop by to see their set at The Bitter End this Sunday (tomorrow, 10/19!) Only $5!
PAULINE ANNE- I'm Pauline of Awesomeland. I'd like to be called Penny but wouldn't that be too egotistical? I can't go a day without coffee, I love James Dean and my mission in life is watch everything Kevin Spacey is in. I'm not as in tune with popular culture as I seem and I'm fine with that. I'd like to live through the 50's with their tacky ads. They're ridiculous!
JOHN MORALES- I'm John The Stretcher. I work as a Physical Therapist Assistant in my day job, a bassist for Penny Louis, and a bookshop keeper in the American Museum of Natural History. My dream is to become the Kaiser of the Roman Empire in the year 1.
MAY MADARANG- Makeshiftmay here! Literally my motto for just about EVERYTHING! While the band would say I'm very organized, I'm also the type that's content with making-do with practically any situation I'm put in. I play most music by ear, so call me a "makeshift musician" (violinist) even. I'm an energetic and a "Jacklyn of all trades."
MICHAEL CHRISTIAN- My name is Michael and I am neat, I love pretty girls and I love to eat! Percussionist of Penny Louis and a singer/songwriter myself. I love puppies, long walks in the beach and sunrise and sunset, Kate Upton, drawing constellations and myself.
NIKHOLAI PUNTO- Hi, my name is Nikholai Punto, you can call me Nikko! I'm Penny Louis' guitarist.
