Best Songs of 2013

Note: This post is not sponsored or linked to sales sites in any way.  All year long, I have been adding to my favorite songs of 2013 playlist, and it ended up being triple the size of last year's list - over 160 songs total. I love indie and alternative the most, but pop, rock, R&B, soul, funk - you name it - everything is represented. What a great year for music, with a nice Christmas surprise from Beyoncé. (Seriously - watch the videos. They are masterpieces.) I have had a tremendous time photographing bands, and listening to new tunes. Who says the music industry is dead? It is just getting started.

Riot Fest Denver 2013 – Day 1 Photos

Note: Riot Fest provided tickets for the event but all words and photos are mine. There was a really fun weekend in September where I was able to take my 11 year old son (who just turned 11 that week) to see some of the most amazing bands of my lifetime. Riot Fest was held way east of Denver in a field at May Farms, and all that open sky actually gave me a feeling of agoraphobia. It also gave us a great view of the three massive stages where bands Blink 182, AWOLNation, Public Enemy, Iggy & The Stooges and The Replacements played their faces off for two days.

The Bible

Everyone is talking about Duck Dynasty's Phil Roberston and A&E's suspension of him. What is so surprising to me is the wide variety of comments I have seen, and how many people are quoting the bible to me. As far as a general overview of the situation, my friend Kristen Howerton from Rage Against The Minivan covers my feelings quite well. What I am pondering is our modern day fascination with holding on to the bible with both hands, gripping so hard that our knuckles turn white. Why quote it word for word as a road map for our lives when the words themselves are so contradictory? And truthfully many of the passages have no meaning in the here and now. Not to mention they were written down long after they actually happened. Doesn't that leave some margin for error?

Dr. Who Tardis Gingerbread House

Dex has becomes obsessed with pastry lately. Not really eating it, but decorating it. He loves Cake Boss, and a bunch of YouTube channels that frankly I can't remember the name of because we are hitting that generation gap where he likes stuff that is…

What Sound Does A Fox Make?

Do you know? Have you seen the very serious video that ponders this question?"What Does The Fox Say?" went viral about a month ago but then Ellen DeGeneres featured the band Ylvis (pronounced ill-vis) from Norway on her show last week and it REALLY went…

iOS7 Is Making My Head Hurt

I have been ranting on twitter for two days now. So sick of 25 year olds designing UI for other 25 year olds. Light gray on white doesn't work for anyone over 40, #iOS7. — Aimee Giese (@Greeblemonkey) September 19, 2013   While you can't…
