About Me

I have a pretty diverse taste in music, and always interested in hearing new stuff. Isn't it amazing how music has such a powerful affect on our lives? How you can listen to a song from 10 years ago and instantly be carried back to the time, the place and even the events surrounding that bit of music that you have associated with it? I love that.

Favorite Songs

Do you ever feel like people judge you by your musical tastes? You know it's true. You're sitting here going, "gee, I wonder what sort of a person this is?" and think you can get an idea of the person by the sort of music they listen to. So I'm hesitant to classify a "favorite songs" or a "favorite artists" because it's often changing. I may not have listened to any of my "desert island" artists, for example, in a year or more, but I still love it every time. To me, music is memory, is experience, is meditative, is enjoyable...

Recent Concerts

Coachella 2010: Am I getting too old for this? So, so crowded. But, the music was amazing as always. I think after three years, I've got the balance between dancing in the sun and chilling in the shade down pat. Highlights include: Meeting Jay-Z and Beyonce as they were checking out Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Phoenix's stripped-down performance (their lighting techs were stuck in Europe due to the volcano). Still, it felt so much more commercial and less chill than in previous years. Nonetheless... I'll be back in 2011.

Coachella 2009: I did it again. Three exhilarating, exhausting days of fun in the desert. I can't really pick out a favorite moment, but highlights include: meeting the lead singer of "Cage the Elephant" after he crowdsurfed his way to the back of the tent; Paul McCartney's pyrotechnics; the amazing sunsets and art; K'naan's very moving, heartfelt set; and zoning out to the Cure, who played until they were unplugged.

Coachella 2008: Best. Concert. Ever. How can you not love that much diverse (mostly) music in one venue? My faves from Coachella: Mark Ronson, Flogging Molly, The Raconteurs, Vampire Weekend, Goldfrapp and Hot Chip. Kate Nash was also good, but she was so nervous! Anyway, I'm so there next year.

They Were Cosmonauts

Space-themed songs

Winter

Winter-themed music

Lions and Tigers and Bears!

I noticed that a lot of songs I enjoyed recently had a "Lion" connection and the inspiration went from there.

I just heard you haven't received the August offering yet. How strange, as I sent it very early in the month. If you don't get it in the next week, let me know and I'll resend. Joe Joseph.Lex@TUHS.Temple.edu

Hi Ashley! I'm sorry your mix is so late. I'm sending it out today, so it should be there soon. Hope you enjoy it!

Hey Ashley, I'm sorry you never received the May mix, I sent it out well over three months ago. I'm going to send you my June mix, so (if or when) you receive the May, then you'll have two. Happy Summer! Cheers! Corina

Manuela

hey ashley can you tell me if you received my dec mix? i'm having a brain drain and can't remember...if not, will despatch asap. thanks!

Ian

Ashley, I have not yet sent your January 09 mix because I am a bad person. And also because of some heavy duty emotional/physical stuff with an old crush of mine, which is kind of dominating my life of late... so I am planning to mail you something this weekend, but since it's so late I figured I'd see if you had any requests, as I'd be happy to fulfill any out of contrition.

Manuela

hi ashley, running a bit late with december 08. am sending tomorrow, hope you like it!

David

Glad you liked them. Been a member long?
