What’s Going On – Dent May, Super Bowl ads, Taylor Swift

2 Feb

Merry Monday, dears!

Hope you had a great weekend.

Mine was made a million times better by diet soda cupcakes. My bff Hannah told me I could make a cake or cupcakes using a diet soda and cake mix (nothing else!). Sure enough, it works. I mixed Coke Zero and some kind of super-moist chocolate cake mix and baked them for about 15 minutes. They are delicious!! I think I’m officially addicted. For “icing” I just used fat-free whipped cream. Heavenly, I tell you!

Anyways, here’s some news…

  • Paste Magazine offers a review of Oxford resident Dent May’s new CD.
  • Neil Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book” will soon hit the big screen (I’m reading this right now and I highly recommend it!)
  • Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Richie Valens. Rolling Stone remembers them in this piece.

    Well there weren’t just a load of people there…they closed off part of the lyric..but from what I remember, it was a blast!

      Dude, I’d have thought the place would be packed.
      “but from what I remember” – lol 🙂

    Yeah, dude’s got talent, and he’s def. going places.

      Yeah, I so wanted to go. Again with the jealousy.:) Did you get his record?

    I was sans cash at the moment, but my roomie picked one up and I absolutely adore it. My current fave is “Can’t Force a Dance Party.” I first heard Dent perform that number last April at Double Decker and absolutely fell in love. There’s something magical about his sound..

      and my jealousy continues…
      I hope to pick up a copy the next time I make it over Oxford way.

    You so should. The film festival’s this weekend, so you’d be bagging to excellent birds with a relatively small stone…yeah, that was just lame. but you get the idea. 🙂

    • sheenabarnett February 4, 2009 at 2:01 pm #

      lol nah it’s not so lame. 🙂
      Yeah I’m hoping I can stop by there. I know for sure I’m going to the Girl Talk show next weekend, though, too. Hopefully I can work in a visit to Purple Haze in the midst of all these goings and doings!

    Ahh lucky you w/ the GirlTalk tickets..if I see you at the fest, I’ll make sure to say hello!

    • sheenabarnett February 4, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

      Do that. We can talk about how jealous we are over each other’s pop culture-y possessions 🙂
