July 30th, 2009 · No Comments

With apologies to Lady Java, the Queen of the Music Monday Meme, I’ve got a tune in my head right now and I just can’t wait until Monday…Rex and I went out to Red Sky in New York City last night for an outing with our new (well, 6 months old) colleagues from work. […]

I will be back later tonight to tell you exactly why I feel lucky today, but for now imagine how lucky I was to find a video tribute to one of my fellow Desperate Housewives with Mary Chapin Carpenter singin’ all the great lyrics to “I Feel Lucky.” Hope this post brings a little […]

Music Monday: Dancing in the Street by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas

July 6th, 2009 · No Comments

Back to work on Music Monday, after a 9-day vacation at our beach house in Bay Head, New Jersey. For those of us, including my family, who missed Martha Reeves and the Vandellas performing live at this year’s 4th of July Parade in Brookside, I thought I’d share the following fun video. I’m here at […]

Music Monday: Veruca Salt (and London) Performing "I Want It Now"

June 13th, 2009 · No Comments

Who else out there remembers those Oompa Loompas from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and their awesome songs about bratty children and their nasty parents? I have loved them since I was a child. 30 years later, London is preparing to audition for the Hexagon Players Fall 2009 performance of Willy Wonka […]

Music Monday: The Dance by Garth Brooks

May 17th, 2009 · No Comments

This week’s Music Monday on Roxiticus Desperate Housewives is dedicated to London’s beloved second grade teacher, who is moving away at the end of the school year. I’ve had a huge hole in my heart for the past two weeks, but “The Dance” is a song that reminds me to focus on how London has […]

Never Say Goodbye

May 6th, 2009 · No Comments

I know it is either early or late for Music Monday, but I’m bluer than blue over some news I’ve received about a friend and wanted to post this Bon Jovi song as a tribute. While it is not my place to share any details, I have been in tears all morning about her imminent […]

Music Monday from a Jersey Girl: Southside Johnny Sings "Coming Back"

May 4th, 2009 · No Comments

I haven’t really written anything in months, too busy to slow down and sort it all out. Sometimes I think it may be best not to think too much, as if going too far below the surface might cause me to find something that’s better left in a locked box. The winter months were dark, […]

Getting An Early Start On Music Monday: Midnight Train to Georgia

April 3rd, 2009 · No Comments

It’s Friday night in the Roxiticus Valley, but I’m already thinking about Music Monday. Gladys Knight came on my iPod singin’ “Midnight Train to Georgia” as part of a “Wilson Picket Genius” set, bringing back two different sets of terrific memories for me.
Just about eight years ago, a couple of months after London was born, […]

It’s officially the Year of the Ox as we celebrate Chinese New Year on this Music Monday. London was born in the Year of the Snake, Maddie and I were born in the Year of the Horse, and Rex was born in the Year of the Rooster… I wonder what that says about all […]
