Neon Rainbow

Growing up in Livingston Montana I have a special appreciation for all things neon. The signs not only beckon to weary travelers and eager bar-goes, but they scream to be photographed, painted, and admired. So, for our viewing pleasure some nouveau neon as well as a touch of the old fashioned 70′s styled stuff (my personal favorite).

Finally, no ode to neon would be complete without the musical stylings of Mr. Alan Jackson.

Music Monday – Kiesza

Given the amount I play this tune, I’m well on the way to ruining it for myself. Until then I will dance and my guess is… you will too.

Now, if I lived in opposite world (which compared to Brooklyn NY, I think I probably do) I’d set up a Kiesza impersonator club and start each day with a faux hawk and acid wash. Alas, until that day arrives, my 90′s loving heart, will do the next best thing and try and capture a little Kiesza style right here on the internet.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to running man my way through the next load of laundry.
