For this week, I’m bringing back a post from early 2017…

Mad Season

As a teen of the 90’s, grunge music became an escape. Some of my favorites included: Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, Screaming Trees, and Mad Season.

Mad Season formed in Seattle, Washington in 1994 by members of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam and Screaming Trees. They released only one album titled Above which became one of my favorite grunge albums of all time. Things started falling apart not long after due to Layne Staley’s problems with substance abuse. Even though they attempted to mend the group again, the band crashed following the death of bassist John Baker Saunders in 1999. Layne Staley died three years later of a drug overdose.

One Lovely Blog Award #2 – Music Edition

collage-2017-09-21 (1)

I was nominated by TheOrangutanLibrarian for the One Lovely Blog Award. I admire the way this award was done as a “music” edition, and because I’ve done this award before, I thought I’d stick with the music edition and share 7 musical facts about myself. I’d like to thank The Orangutan Librarian for nominating me! If you haven’t checked out this blog yet, please do! You’ll find many book reviews, book lists, tags, awards, and more.

~7 Musical Facts About Me~

#1 – When I was a kid, my room was pink and I despised it. I covered as much as I could with posters from my favorite bands along with other embellishments to try and make my room look cool. Music was pretty much my life and I enjoyed listening to it and creating my own.

#2 – As you can see in the photo above, I had colored my hair blue. Of course, now, it’s nothing to see someone with colored hair, but back then it was still very rare in my community. My best friend and I used to love hanging out at this store in Chi-town called The Alley, which is where my love for hair dye started. I was the first person in my school to color my hair a different color and my band teacher was very upset with me because we had a concert coming up.

Wow, she was extremely upset. Looking back now, I do feel bad about it! She was my favorite teacher and I really respected her, I just wanted to color my hair blue! She actually teaches at a local university and I ran into her a few times when I was in college. She doesn’t seem to be mad about it anymore. 🙂 Phew!


#3 – I listen to nearly every music genre, but my favorite will probably always be grunge and I’ve been told that I’m still living in the 90s.

A few favorites from the 90s:

 

 

 


#4 – When I was a child, my grandfather would sing songs to me out of this Reader’s Digest Songbook which I still have. I think this is where my love for music started.

#5 – When I was in high school band, we went downstate for competition and I won various awards including this really cool Musicianship Award.

#6 – I discovered a music group called Walk Off the Earth last year. I adore them and find them extremely creative. If you haven’t seen them before, check out this video! It’s amazing. They play a cover of the song “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye using only one instrument!


#7 We went to see Shrek the Musical a while back. It was amazing! It was my first live musical and I was in awe the entire time. We were able to take pictures with the cast afterward which was really fun for the kids to get to meet everyone. It was such a fun experience.
