Sleep Deprived Spotlight: Carried Away

Carried Away is a pop-punk band from Toronto. Obviously, they are young and energetic. The lead singer sounds so sweet and innocent. It makes for an interesting dynamic with the rest of the band. Many bands want what Carried Away has – youth, energy and a singer with a candy-coated voice. There are tons ofContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Spotlight: Carried Away”

Interview with . . . The Sh-Booms

If I could invest in one band right now, it would be The Sh-Booms. They are seriously a band to watch. I highly suggest listening to all of their music, buy all of their merch and follow them everywhere. Al Ruiz of The Sh-Booms responded to a few questions in a timely fashion, which IContinue reading “Interview with . . . The Sh-Booms”

The Resurrection of Joan Ashby: #bookreview

This book, “The Resurrection of Joan Ashby” by Cherise Wolas appeared on my doorstep at least a year and a half ago. I’d like to think that a magical book fairy from somewhere amazing was rewarding me for something. It’s more likely that it came from a book fairy at Flatiron Books in New YorkContinue reading “The Resurrection of Joan Ashby: #bookreview”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Hey,Chels

The requirements for being in Hey, Chels are probably that you have to have cool shoes, not be named Chels or Chelsea and also be musically inclined. The album came out in September. It was produced by Patrick Ryan Heaney, who has worked with Cage the Elephant. So the album was inherently cool before itContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Hey,Chels”

Interview with . . . Sarah Potenza

Whenever I watch one of Sarah Potenza’s videos on YouTube, I see a bold woman with a larger than life voice, who could absolutely be mistaken for my sister. Well, she isn’t my actual sister but I feel like she’s still a sisterly type figure for women around the world. My daughter used to callContinue reading “Interview with . . . Sarah Potenza”

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Contra

Well, I’m taking a break from my resolution to listen to more relaxed music. Today, I’m listening to Inertia by Contra. When you listen to Contra, you may think that they lack positivity. They are a rather loud metalcore band but some of their lyrics do contain a message about staying strong in the faceContinue reading “Sleep Deprived Music Review: Contra”

The Accidental Beauty Queen: #bookreview

Beauty pageants have changed a little bit since I watched them as a young girl. Basically, they are the same. I think that in more recent years beauty pageant organizers want us to think of it as a scholarship competition for well rounded beautiful people. There’s a stigma attached to beauty pageants now that thereContinue reading “The Accidental Beauty Queen: #bookreview”
