5 Reasons to Come See Me At Lebowski Fest

  1. Behold My Lengthy Mane

It has been years since I have graced the Lebowski Fest stage. Every time I’ve played there (three times thus far) I’ve had relatively short hair. If you come to the 2013 Fest, you will see my gorgeous, long, centaur-like mane. You will behold me and my Fabio-like hair. You will put on the cover of romance novels, as you should.

  1. I Have New Songs To Play

The old school Kentucky Prophet hip-hop is largely gone. No more rapping, but much more singing. Less hip-hop, more indie rock. Wouldn’t it be stupid if I had nothing new to play after all these years away? What am I, Foghat?

  1. I Do Not Have A Stupid Louisville Beard

This indie-rock coal miner look is awful and I refuse to have it. Besides, it would distract from my excellent long hair.

  1. I Will Play The Piano Like A Gentleman

I have been told that my piano style is “neolithic”. Then I looked up “neolithic” and found out what it meant. Essentially, someone told me I play piano like someone from the Stone Age. That is a gross misconception. I play piano like a gentleman, even though I lived in the forest well into my teens and didn’t speak or write English until my mid-twenties.

  1. Others Things Are Happening After I Get Done

For example, once I am forcibly removed from the stage, I will be replaced by Kyle Gass and his Band. Kyle is apparently a member of the group Tenacious D, which from what I’ve been told is a group of video and film artists. To conclude the Friday festivities, a screening of the 1998 movie “The Big Lebowski” will take place. Then there will be more festivities the following day but by then, I will be almost certainly be out of town.

Melissa in Lovely Things : 70’s American Girl

Our Young Mary’s Record series, Melissa in Lovely Things continues this week right on into swimsuit seasons.  Melissa is a natural at mixing and matching textiles, color, and styles in her clothes and accessories — We’ve been watching her for a while - We’re creeps. — and she never disappoints — flawlessly dressing herself for a range of occasions, parties, shows, adventures.

There’s been a major 70s revival, and I can’t get enough of it (especially for the summer)!  This means flag prints, bell bottoms, platform shoes, and some over-sized shades.

It’s that time again ladies, the dreaded swimsuit season.  But rather than starve yourself or spend hours at the gym, I recommend taking the easy (and much less painful) route of adopting the flirty and flattering pin-up style.  My friends and I made our first trip to the creek this week, and I threw together a few essentials for achieving the look:

1) High waisted shorts.  Embrace your inner Daisy Duke with a great pair of cut-offs.

2) A cute retro style swimsuit. High waist swim bottoms and one pieces are super flattering on all body types, and sweetheart necklines and halter necklines are a MUST. (Tip: Modcloth.com is great for finding these— Hit our Modcloth ad link right in ye olde sidbar, y’all! )

3) Every girl needs a cute pair of sunglasses (Heart shaped sunnies are my go to in the summer!).

Channel your inner pin-up with some sassy style that will put the rest of those string bikini wearin’ girls to shame.  Oh, and don’t forget the red lipstick!
