I’m Pregnant, George

November 29, 2013 by


I absolutely cannot hear this song without thinking of the movie Kuffs. I was going to pass over that strange (although entirely logical mental glitch) and simply leave you with the downright odd video clip that comes with the song… but I thought it only fair to let you know that you too can share that […]

Mr Mo

November 28, 2013 by


You guys remember the Mr Men and Little Miss books, right? They’re little and square and kinda ridiculous but maybe a little bit awesome too. And they’ve been around forever. According to their website they’ve had most of the set since the early eighties, although they’ve added a handful every decade since to keep things […]

Now Usually I Don’t Do This…

November 22, 2013 by


Today’s song doesn’t have a video clip. Technically it doesn’t even have an official existence. It’s a remix. By TheMattSmith.* And it starts with the immortal words, “Now usually I don’t do this…”** Go here and listen: Call Me Maybe vs. Ignition   * Which is funny because while I’m pretty sure he has nothing to […]

Running With Rum

November 15, 2013 by


Soundtracks are really great for writing background music. They’re intentionally mood music and usually instrumental so there aren’t any words to get in the way. Rather than listen to entire soundtracks I usually just steal individual songs for my playlist. Songs that, now I’m thinking about it, tend to have a specific theme: running. Maybe that’s […]

Plotting For Pantsers

November 14, 2013 by


Me: I need my brain for other things. Arkem: Plotting. Me: Yep. (Pause) It sounds so much worse when you say it. Writers tend to fall into two categories: plotters and pantsers (as in by-the-seat-of-their-pants). I have always fallen into the make-it-up-as-I-go-along category, stumbling blindly through the story woodland and bumping into things and calling […]

Get High on My Fault Lines

November 11, 2013 by


My Honest Poem I was born on July 22nd. I hear that makes me a Leo. I don’t really know what that means. Iʼm five foot six (and a half). I weigh 145 pounds. I donʼt know how to swim. And Iʼm a sucker for a girl with a nice smile and clean sneakers. Iʼm […]

Shut Up and Let Me See Your Jazz Hands

November 8, 2013 by


This song is my second favourite from this album but the most appropriate to this playlist. I enthusiastically encourage you to go and listen to Sing, which is my favourite. And then, when you’re enticed and confused, go check out the rest of the album and its extras. Because this album is a tiny (awesome) post-apocalyptic science fiction […]
