Lately I’ve been playing the “grungegaze, psychedelic, pop” group Dead Gaze on repeat. You can check out a couple of my favorite tracks from the band below and read my review of its recent release here.

The Nutribullet has positively changed my life.
I’ll share more details and recipes in a future post, but one of my go-to Nutribullet snacks when I’m feeling tired, craving something sweet or just need to feed my body good nutrients: a few handfuls of organic spinach (super food!), a handful of Goji berries (super food!), a cup or so of almond milk and one frozen (or chilled) banana. I place all the ingredients in the extractor extraordinaire and turn it on for a minute. The result is a creamy, sweet deliciousness that is hard to describe beyond that.
What are your favorite ice-cold summer drinks?

I rarely invest in quality sunglasses because I lose and abuse them, but warm weather has arrived (in Arizona) and nothing says summer like protecting the eyes from the way harsh sun. I personally prefer round lenses and quirky frames.
Ladies looking to stock up on some cheap-but-chic shades might prefer my picks for under $20: Opie Tortoise ($13), Black/Clear Circle ($15), Hollow-Out Silver-Tone Shades ($15.90), Maddie Sunglasses ($18).
Hi, friends. I’ve been so busy working, running my music website The Spec, helping mum with her cooking blog (coming soon), and enjoying life that I’ve neglected this blog. But, I’m happy to say: I’m back! Expect at least one post per week, from this point forward.

I have a lot planned for the new year. The above Jack Kerouac quote says it all. If you’ve remained a follower of this blog despite its sporadic nature: thank you and stay tuned. I am sure 2013 will bring a much-needed consistency to WHAT SHE SAID. Until then, enjoy the holiday season, and take on 2013 with enthusiasm because a new years always feels like a fresh start, no?

A few weeks ago, myself and a couple ladies from my music website The Spec had the opportunity to spend time with the Los Angeles band Races as it toured with Generationals. We met with the band members after their Phoenix show at Crescent Ballroom and then followed (and rode in the van) with them to Tucson where they played at Club Congress.
Yes, it was as Almost Famous as it sounds.
Of course we documented the entire adventure and the result: SPECTATOUR, a five-part video series including one-on-one interviews, live show footage and a behind-the-scene look at life on the road.
