This is why I hate the spring...

Whoo! Spring has finally arrived in Helsinki, sun is shining and everybody is happy and all that, but: with the chaging season you also get all the new nuisances associated with the new season. Look at the photo, my dirty Stan Smiths. This really is why I hate early spring.

I love my sneakers but it's next to impossible to keep your shoes clean and nice when all the snow melting and streets are wet and dirty. Horrible. And even if I wanted to, I cannot be like Missy Elliot who apparently uses her sneakers only once, to keep 'em fresh, you know.

If you are into sneakers and want to know what styles all the 'cool' Helsinki people sport, look here. There is an interesting sneaker discussion thread on Lifesaver records' discussion board, where people are posting a pictures of the sneakers they are wearing on that particular day. And yeah, I started it myself way back in December.

Kids should have a toothbrush in the pocket for these incidents. Keep 'em sneakers shining!

Enjoyable visit to your blog! Please visit my nephew's Taylor Hollingsworth music site Brash Music Company of Atlanta, GA writes: It's been happening for decades. Some guitar-slinging kid emerges out of the South with a blues rock soul sound that is more born out of the South than out of the kid. The family tree for this has branches that reach from Macon to Memphis, and Taylor Hollingsworth makes sure that the Birmingham thumbtack is on the map. Enjoy a clip from Taylor Hollingsworth's cd Tragic City. Hey, an Aunt can brag can't she?

Please visit Taylor Hollingsworth music site Taylor Hollingsworth who according to Allmusic.com is a vibrant mix of Sticky Fingers-era Rolling Stones and Pleased TO Meet Me Replacements which course through the standout rave-ups. When Hollingsworth gets his rock & roll elements right, he can create impressive, memorable music, and Tragic City holds enough excellent material to suggest that this Birmingham, AL, native has a very promising future. Listen to a clip from his latest cd Tragic City!
