The simple things... LIVE music

There are days when I'm feeling on top of the world = me + warm sunny day outdoors + good company + wonderfully refreshing beverage or deliciously scrumptious chocolatey dessert.  :)

And days when that one lonely raincloud in the entire sky has decided to choose this one day to follow me and my misery around.  It happens.  BUT, in all attempts not to let it rain on my parade, I've decided to pay homage to those simple things in life... days of good vibes and fun memories in the simplest of forms... and so it begins..

Enjoying a wonderful evening of live music, even if (or especially because) it's on a Monday night
Radars to the Sky at Spaceland

I LOVE this band!  The lead guitarist's rock-out shuffle-dance, and the keyboardist's on-going so-happy smile are the best.  (You really have to see them live to know and appreciate what I'm talking about).   I've only had the pleasure of enjoying their incredible music on two occasions, but they are fantastic!  It's really an amazing thing when a band whose music you're not too familiar with, really gets your energy going and dancing to the beat.  I look forward to your next energetically charged show, Radars to the Sky!

I admit it... I do LIKE that "I don't get enough sleep because I stay up late for no reason"-- it stands proudly on my Facebook profile page.  But one night, I decided "that's enough!  No more doing things just because!"  OK, I didn't really say that--sometimes a meaningless, late-night web sesh is one of the small joys of life.  

Instead, I decided to change things up a bit, and dedicate my late-night insomnia to a long-time dream (or more like delirious impulse) to the start of a new blog... oh-so momolicious!  I can't promise how long it's going to be up, or how dedicated I will be to the up-keep, but I will say, on those nights when sleep evades you, and you just can't look at another youtube video of whatever randomness (who am I kidding, that never gets old!), I welcome you to MY page of whatever randomness.  If anything, it'll satisfy the voyeuristic tendencies we all try to suppress, even if only for a few minutes (at this point, only a few seconds.. but trust me.. more blogs to come!)

Please see below for official introduction...thanks for stopping by!  Muchas gracias and good night!

And so it begins...

Hello friends and welcome to el blog de Momolicious, the brand-spanking NEW blog for momolicious expression of all things artistic, noteworthy, and just plain randomness for the sole purpose of entertainment.

September had been my month of creative awakening, and a nose-dive right into painting, cutting, re-painting, and pasting into the wee hours of the night--all for one whirlwind of a night at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach.  Here are just a few photos:
