The fantastic quintet Milo Greene is going on tour, with a Feb. 8 date in Seattle. Not seeing any dates in CO so far, but maybe that will change.

Lightning Love

Sharing a little new music today from the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor/Ferndale, Mich., area:

Lightning Love is Leah Diehl, her brother, Aaron, and Ben Collins. They've got one album out already, they're on the same label as Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. and Cotton Jones now, and their new EP "Girls Who Look Like Me" will be out Jan 31.

Listen to "Deadbeat," which you can also get as a free download if you're willing to fork over your email address. (also available at Facebook)

Goodies for design fans

Fab.com has alerted us to 2 new finds. Surface Collective is yet another source of wall art, if you're having trouble finding wall stickers that you really like. And though Tivi's wood jewelry and clutches may be going away, you can still find beautiful wood cuff bracelets through May Furniture Co.

Mom's good cookin'

Mom and Dad cooked up lots of good stuff to eat over the holidays. We had roast duck, menudo, hot pot (w/ shrimp and squid and mussels), abalone, steak, homemade hash browns, fried cashews, squab, among other goodies. But we also had skate! Mom's recipe is to bake it with ginger, black beans, soy sauce, scallions. Skin peels right back after cooking.
