Well folks, the costume has been perfected, the bridesmaids dress fittings have been scheduled, my wedding dress has arrived and all that’s left to do today is the weekly Tuesday Tag-fest. I found myself going through the music archives this week and busting out some sweet older tunes to throw into the mix of newer music. See what you think!

“Hang Me Up To Dry” –Cold War Kids

“Put the Gun Down” –ZZ Ward

“Where the Kids Are” –Blondfire

“Wild” –Royal Teeth

“Default” –Django Django (this is a fun one)

“Madness” –Muse…still hasn’t gotten old! We tried to figure out how we could use this as the song for our first dance… but all attempts at dancing without waving our arms around our heads were a fail.

“Free” –Twin Atlantic

“Black River Killer” –Blitzen Trapper

“Piano Man” –Billy Joel

“Sweet Disposition” –The Temper Trap

Sidenote — I was told that MySpace is making a comeback. Could this be true?!!!? My God, I would just love to reactivate and relive years 18-20….maybe not. Baha!

Halloween is almost heeeeere!!! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! I love Halloween. Even though I’m a certifiable adult(ish), I love dressing up and throwing a few back during the first holiday of the season. Charlie, not so much. Actually, not at all. It has been HELL trying to convince him to even dress up! He’s a little Scrooge when it comes to Halloween. After throwing all of my wonderful couples costumes ideas out the window (Mario & Peach, Ringmaster & Lion –couldn’t do this one because my costume would include a whip which somehow shows ownership? who knows, but I love him–, Popeye & Olive Oyl), he finally agreed to dress up as Thing 1. That’s right. He will be wearing a red tshirt and a blue wig. And that’s it. Whomp Whomp Whomppppp! Luckily he makes up for his lack of Halloween fervor with like, a bunch of other awesome attributes. Pictures of our (amazing) costumes will be included in a later post, so keep your eyes peeled!

Now, on to this weeks Tuesday Tags:

If I Wanted Someone” -Dawes (SO good.. seriously)

Better Weather” -Good Old War

Ocean Breathless Salty” -Modest Mouse

Headlights” -Morning Parade

Dope Nose” -Weezer

“Harbour Lights” –A Silent Film

Tightrope” –Walk the Moon

“Come Home” –Chappo

“Old White Lincoln” –The Gaslight Anthem

“Beer Money” –Kip Moore

“Bread and Water” –Ryan Bingham 

“Southside of Heaven” –Ryan Bingham

…If you couldn’t tell, I’ve been listening to a lot of Ryan Bingham! Something about football season and the fall weather just calls for country music.
