RIP Donna Summer

May 17, 2012

Disco Queen Donna Summer died today at age 63.  Apparently, she was battling cancer.

Sure I wasn’t around for the height of the Disco era but I’ve actually always had a thing for Disco music and Donna Summer sang some of my favorites. (And I loved her trademark big hair.)

Rest in Peace Ms. Summer.

Free Cupcakes!

May 9, 2012

What’s better than cupcakes? Free cupcakes.  Tomorrow, May 10th Sprinkles New York will be celebrating their 1st anniversary and they are handing out a free cupcake* to customers all day!   If you are a fellow cupcake lover (and you’re familiar with the current popular  free cupcake daily giveaway to “the first  50 people who whisper the secret word” deal that you never get to the shop in time for) this celebration is for you.

Ok so maybe everyone right now is on that “get ready for summer” diet and exercise kick.  But one little treat won’t hurt and it’s for a good cause…well, not really but it’s free.

Another pioneer gone but not forgotten.  Adam Yauch better known as MCA of the Beastie Boys passed away yesterday at the age of 47 after a battle with cancer.  It definitely feels strange, to say the least, when artists that I grew up listening to start passing away.

One thing I loved about the Beastie Boys was their videos.  (Didn’t everybody?)  What’s your fav Beastie Boys vid?  Here’s mine.  “I’ll stir-fry you in my wok!!”   Rest in Peace MCA.
