A Jamboree Family: Inspiration

A Jamboree Family: Inspiration

For Phyllis Erck, her parents are the inspiration for starting the Ruby Jewel Jamboree now three years running in Missoula.  Phyllis was born about the same time her father started the Reilly Springs Jamboree in Texas and both her parents took her as an infant to the concerts.  It wasn’t until her twenties, when she […]

Josh Farmer Band, Vibrations

Josh Farmer Band, Vibrations

On stage at Sean Kelly’s on the last semi-final night there is a heavy metal pealing guitar band performing.  It is body to body at the low-ceiling venue.  For most there is energy of excitement but for some the air feels dense.  Back toward the kitchen in his multi-colored beanie hat Josh Farmer’s eyes are […]

Fall Into Paris

Fall Into Paris

Paris is one big, beautiful, gritty, historic monster of a village. Iconic neighborhoods, global ethnicities, and diverse languages swirl among the commotion of street markets, car horns, speeding motorcycles, whizzing bicycles, and dogs. French men in suave suits, French women in sleek, tight skirts, Germans in jeans, Americans in Nike’s, Swiss in hiking boots, and […]

Arroyo Grande, 93420--Nice Town, Normal People

Arroyo Grande, 93420–Nice Town, Normal People

©2012 Ann Bodle-Nash The ceramic coffee-shop mug reads: Arroyo Grande, California, 93420. Nice Town, Normal People. I start laughing. I’m not feeling normal. It’s day one of a three day, three-generational road trip by minivan, from north of San Francisco, down scenic Highway 101, to a family reunion in coastal central California. You remember family […]

 A World Premier of Witches, The Musical

A World Premier of Witches, The Musical

  A new musical is brewing in the Northwest. Witches, the brainchild of Conrad Askland, premiered recently at the classic Lincoln Theatre in downtown Mt. Vernon, WA. Based on historical accounts of the Salem, Massachusetts witch trials of 1692, Askland has crafted, and is still tweaking his original book, score and lyrics. I recently interviewed […]

Waiting for Sandy-- the Hurricane

Waiting for Sandy– the Hurricane

c. Ann Bodle-Nash, 2012 We’re waiting on hurricane Sandy and she’s late. We are hunkered down in the Sheraton Suites hotel, half a mile from the Philadelphia airport, with Cheetos, a jar of peanut butter, some applesauce, peanuts, and two cans of tuna. The airport is closed, will be tomorrow too and our tickets have […]

"The Blues"

“The Blues”

Obviously blue jeans are a style staple. But what if we took an old standby and gave it a new twist. Cobalt blue can be as regal as it is rock and really pops against black. I recommend pairing these bright jeans with a faded denim shirt for a denim on denim look with a […]

Be You

Be You

“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” – Yves Saint Laurent Style can mean a lot of things. To some, it is the difference between good taste and bad. To others it is a form of self expression and helps say things to the world that can’t be heard. Life is a sensory experience and we don’t […]
