Sinus infection + Tons of work + Tons of class work = Well earned weekend getaway in Mammoth. I am going to be a ski bunny for 2 days and I can hardly wait.

Currently listening to a ton of new music, thought I would share some new DeVotchKa. Their new album, 100 Lovers is quite wonderful. As usual they infuse so much energy and romance into their music and they create such a unique sound. I am currently obsessing over The Alley, it will definitely be one of my favorites of 2011.

100 Lovers 2011 (Anti)

I am compiling a list of some of my favorite songs of 2008 unfortunately it is taking me a little while… Plus I have so many I think I may have to do something different this year. We will see. Expect that over the Holidays.

I have not participated in the Contrast Podcast for quite some time but when I heard Tim was going to do the Festive Fifty I decided to jump on it. The Festive Fifty is awesome because quite frankly I had some catching up to do, it got me to sit down and listen to some tracks I had previously ignored or just had not gotten to yet. When Tim asked if I would be open to introducing one of the songs, I thought what the hell!

Then he told me what song it was… Devotchka. My first thought was, have I even heard their band name pronounced? No… Shit. Research time. It pretty much sounds just as it is spelled but it still got me nervous. Anyways, go wander over to the Contrast Podcast and check out Part 1 and then Part 2 of Festive Fifty. I know you will enjoy. :-)
