Movin’ to the groovin’

the girl Riot asked over Twitter: “[W]hat songs -move- you?” Needless to say, I’m a sucker for “moving” music, and 140 characters can’t do my list justice, so here we go (with last.fm links to listen if possible): Am I Ever Gonna Change? by Extreme. Yes, I fully realize this is the “More Than Words” […]

Temperatures plunge again

Temperatures are once again falling rapidly at this hour; locations inland a few miles such as West Ashley, Mt. Pleasant, and Summerville are already seeing temperatures dropping below the mid-40s.
