Guest DJ: Mari of Mari’s Virtual Notebook

Mari MadmenSo, can I just tell you how excited I am about Mari? WAY. WAY excited. Her shuffle marks a momentous occasion, yo.

MARI is the FIRST completely random total stranger Mom blogger to send me a shuffle out of the blue!! I was so friggin’ excited when I saw that email, I swear to you I actually squee’d. (And I am soooo not a squee’er normally. I am the epitome of cool. Trust me.)

Now, what kind of person just up and sends ten songs to a total stranger? One with a great personality, keener than average sense of humor and ROCKIN’ taste in music, that’s what kind. Verily, the Luck gods are shining on me, because now not only do I have another great shuffle in the can, but I’ve gained a new Twitter buddy who makes me grin on a regular basis! And, if she can elicit a grin in 140 characters, just IMAGINE what she can garner with an entire blog post…

Yep, before I drug her out into the spotlight, Mari kept her blog pretty close to the vest I hear. A parenting magazine editor by day, her blog was her safe place to vent and let her “excess thoughts spill over.” But, of course I asked her for some favorite blog posts to highlight…y’know, like y’do. I’m guessing she hadn’t thought that part of her master plan through completely before she spontaneously sent me her shuffle, poor thing! A hurried review took place before she opened up her journalistic endeavors to public consumption – but lucky for us, it looks like she kept the flavor intact. That flavor? Yummy! 😉

This month she’s doing a daily music post for RAWKTOBER – sorry, but I can’t pick just two. You’re going to have to bookmark her site and check in daily for some great tunes. But before that, soak in the saucy goodness that is The Mari Shuffle:


Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

I try very hard to indoctrinate my kids to real music, good music, a variety of music! Here is a quick ten (who can stop at 5?) … ~Mari

      My mind is like a bunch of nothing, but I guess it doesn’t bother me. I haven’t been up to anything recently. I’ve pretty much been doing nothing to speak of.

      know where you are coming from on the audiobooks and the wife (and in my case kids) not wanting to hear that same stories. For those vacation trips, I now have to have headphones and a portable audio device (tape, CD, mp3 player). Elsewise, I’ll have to listen to about 20 “Magical Treehouse audio stories…I wish our minivan CD player came with a headphone socket option… Oh well.Thanks for stopping by and sharing!

      Yum I’m completely absorbed in Rancid lately. I feel like I’m like the thrasher soccer mom, June Cleaver if her cleaver were a pendant that she paired with her pearls & Doc Martens …
