Weekend Listening

Happy weekend everybody! What are your plans for the next few days? I've had a general feeling of ennui the past week or so, and need some perking up - I'm thinking I might try to grab drinks with friends (did you know it's really hard to find a Pimm's Cup in the US?) and go see "The King's Speech." Anyone care to join me?

Pickin' Up The Pieces

One thing that is definitely on the agenda for the weekend is finishing up a few projects and jamming out to some good music. My current obsession is Fitz and the Tantrums. The band's album, Pickin' Up the Pieces, is perfect for grooving and getting motivated to tackle a task. I could listen to "Moneygrabber"  or "Rich Girls" on repeat for an hour! Head over to the band's website for a free download of "Moneygrabber."

By the way, how AWESOME is this band's name? One of the best I've heard of in a while. I found Fitz and the Tantrums through our local independent radio station, WEXT. If you are a lover of great music (or news), please support independent radio.

Have a good weekend!

I would so love to grab drinks with you and your girls and see "The Kings Speech" with a smuggled Pimms!

PH - there are two neat independent theatres. One also owns the coffee shop/cafe next door and offers the best sweets and coffee at the concession counter. The other has a little lounge within the theatre with a limited, but decent, wine and beer selection. When I'm in the mood for a "lighter" drink, I always go for a Pimms or a Gin Gimlet.
