I've been redesigning Earthpages' look and feel over the past few weeks. Now that it's pretty well settled, time to reel in some more years. In 2010 I'm 48 and exploring all sorts of new stuff, not a lot being mainstream pop. Yes, I'm listening to the radio a bit as I drive around town... Continue Reading →
It's 2009 and I'm 47 years old. For those of you just joining my journey through the past, Reelin' in the Years is an autobiography of sorts thru pop music. When I was a kid music was paramount.

Possibly. But how could she have lip... Continue Reading →
