Coffee and Tunes: Steampunk Edition

As John and I drink our morning coffee and make last minute costume adjustments in our mad scramble to prepare for today’s Steampunk and Makers Fair, these are the tunes we’re checking out to prep our minds and spirits. I hope you enjoy them!

OK, this last longer musical piece has ‘experimental’ in the tag line. So prepare yourself for something a little bit different.

Hero or Villain

I saw this painting yesterday in a restaurant named ‘The Tuck Shop‘ where we had been for our dinner after the gym. There were many like this, but this one caught my eye because of the way it delivered a quote from my favorite superhero movie, The Dark Knight, in a painting. Very neatly done. I was so tempted to buy it, but since I don’t have any space in my home for the paintings I had to let it go. The cost of the painting in ₹ is also captured. Anyone fancy it?

In case you need the quote clearly here it is:

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Coffee and Tunes

John and I were up early this morning. We are really enjoying our coffee and a few tunes. I hope you enjoy them! Don’t forget to pause a moment to remember our Veterans who sacrificed (and those who still sacrifice) so much!

And your long mix for today is one I’ve shared before from Emancipator. John and I really like this album!

Coffee and Tunes

Starting this Monday with my favorite person, a full cup of Community Coffee, and a couple of tunes from Niiiiiiii…one more fast-paced and one a bit more chill. I hope you have a wonderful week.

And here’s your long mix from a fairly new channel, Berdeyev Creations. I hope you enjoy it! Don’t forget to click the subscribe button if you like what you hear.

Tea and Tunes

I just put our tea water on the stove to boil. These are the tunes John and I are winding down to while we enjoy the evening. Short pieces tonight…no long mixes…but I hope you’ll enjoy them just the same. :)

toxic people

These are wise words and inspiring observations. I enjoyed reading this post and gained some encouragement from it. Please be sure to click the link to check out more deep thoughts, beautiful photography, and fantastical artwork from Carrie Hilgert!

I talk a lot about growing into a wholehearted person, on this blog and in my face to face interactions. I think we’ve all come across articles and memes and quotes on how to deal with toxic people. This is the big thing to look out for nowadays if you want to live a happy life. More people are thinking for themselves and breaking out of what they were taught as kids and doing their thing. More people place an importance on personal happiness and taking ownership of this one life they’re given.

And that is the tits. Really. We need more of that.

As a diplomat and a people pleaser, toxic people have been my biggest hurdle. I think some people are obvious. But I also think some people hide their toxicity beneath a sheer veneer of Well Meaning Intention. I don’t think they mean to be toxic…

Tea and Tunes

It has been one busy day today! I ‘sewed’ the inseam of a pair of pants while at work today, only to find that I’d forgotten to thread the needle. Thankfully, that was my only time consuming mistake and easily fixable. We also went to vote today. As expected, my desired candidate got shoved aside for Vile and More Vile options. Ugh…I really hate politics.

As John and I wait for our tea to steep, we’re winding down with these tunes. I really need them today. I hope you enjoy them!

Coffee and Tunes…

You’re probably thinking, “Coffee? At this hour?” And the answer to that questioning thought is, “Yes! The consequences be blasted to smithereens!” I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’m sorry about that. No excuses except for being really busy. I’m actually working pretty hard on several projects right now and when I have time, I participate in some art challenges and a photo challenge every now and again. I’m really trying to expand my artistic horizons and learn new techniques and it’s a lot of fun. But it is time consuming. To see what I’ve been up to, you can check out my business blog and/or my deviantART gallery. Without further ado, here is the the chill mix my husband and I are chilling and creating to tonight. I hope you enjoy it!

 

Coffee and Tunes

It’s been too long since I posted tunes. I keep reblogging to promote other awesome bloggers I enjoy following, and it helps to let y’all know I’m still alive. I will post tunes this morning but I’m not going to post regularly here. I’ve decided to create a schedule because I just can’t keep up with /everything/ that’s on my plate right now. With the holiday season bearing down heavily upon me, and knowing that I haven’t put together anything we really need for those holidays, or for the upcoming events we are planning to attend, I have lots of work ahead of me. I’ll be posting at least once a week, probably on the weekend. But for today, here’s your selection of tunes to listen to with your coffee (or tea). I hope you enjoy them.

Remember

Melody:

I love this statement. It’s so true!

Life is too short to be sad all the time, so laugh everyday, smile when you want to cry, love the ones that care for you, forget the ones that don’t, hang out with friends whenever possible, regret nothing because at one time it was everything you wanted, never backstab someone cause they will backstab you back, and just live life to the fullest because you only get one life.
