My Favorite Music of 2022

               This was an interesting year—musically. At the beginning of 2022, my listening habits were largely the same—always in the background. Whether I was cooking, driving, doing chores, or reading, I had music. In February, however, I let more silence into my life. I never used to like the quiet and music filled that void,… Continue reading My Favorite Music of 2022

What I’m Listening To: 2022 Honorable Mentions

Another full year of WILT is done. Each month I kept track of my favorite songs and albums, but plenty didn’t make the cut. A lot of decent songs were buried in the backlog, but I’m here to bring them to light. These songs have stood the test of time and deserve a shout-out for… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: 2022 Honorable Mentions

What I’m Listening To: December 2022

               We’re almost at the end of the year here, and that means we have one final list of monthly favorites before we narrow them all down to some honorable mentions and the top fifty. December, then, is a bit of an odd month. Mentally, I’m trying to tally all those past listens together while… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: December 2022

What I’m Listening To: November 2022

               November was an interesting month—musically. I didn’t quite explore the genres and sounds as much as I normally do. Instead, a lot of my listening was devoted to the same atmosphere with occasional jaunts elsewhere. Since I spent a lot of time working on NaNoWriMo, I worked with the vibe I wanted for inspiration.… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: November 2022

What I’m Listening To: October 2022

               September may have been spent traveling, sneaking scraps of time to find and listen to new music, but October has been a blessing. Not only have many of my favorite artists released new albums, but we also had some long-awaited singles and discoveries too. I’ve been driving with the windows down, cooking in the… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: October 2022

Pumpkin Songs 2022: 31 Tracks for Treats

               In 2021, OcTerror returned to its roots with an eclectic mix of music from inside and outside horror films. This year we’ll be continuing our celebration of diegetic and non-diegetic sound mixing, soundtracks, and scores with another list of amazing musical moments from some of our favorite movies. In the past 20 years, we… Continue reading Pumpkin Songs 2022: 31 Tracks for Treats

What I’m Listening To: September 2022

               In a normal month, I’d have a nice, tidy list of songs prepared. They would be songs I’d listened to regularly throughout September. Songs I’d made a strong connection to. Maybe even a few that might qualify for the Best Of list at the end of the year. This month, however, has been anything… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: September 2022

Getaway with Soleil: A Night at The Cordis

            Most of the time, my accommodations fall cleanly into the ‘affordable’ category. On family road trips, we’d sometimes stay in Best Westerns or Motel 6s: pools rarely open, itchy comforters, views of small towns or open fields, free cable TV, and reasonable pricing for a night between here and there. My current holiday will… Continue reading Getaway with Soleil: A Night at The Cordis

What I’m Listening To: August 2022

               When Taylor Swift said, “August slipped away into a moment of time”, she really nailed it. Somehow, this month has both gone by in a blur and dragged. Maybe it’s because I’ve been preparing for The Getaway or busy helping where I can; all I do know is the favorite songs of August came… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: August 2022

What I’m Listening To: July 2022

               July not only brought the heat, but also a fine selection of music. I listened to jazz and classic rock while writing. Pop and alt rock kept me company while cooking or driving. Soundtracks and scores made me love their films and series more. Maybe it was too hot for midnight dance parties, but… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: July 2022
