It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Ramen. I have been making my own variations on ramen way before it was the hip new restaurant trend. I’ll admit mine mostly involve sautéed spinach, a fried egg and some homemade peanut sauce (Jiff + soy sauce) but now I’m really trying to step up my game. Here are some yummy recipes to try…

Everyone knows a Talking Heads song whether they know it or not, Psycho Killer or Burning Down The House. When I was younger I remember knowing Take Me to The River only because of the Billy The Big Mouth Bass (the singing fish) we got for Christmas one year, but that was a much more bluesy rendition. Senior year of high school we watched the David Byrne film “True Stories” starring John Goodman and laughed at the tune “Hey Now“.
It wasn’t until college and even more so after college that I learned to really love The Talking Heads. My girlfriends and I loved This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) and loved the Miles Fisher “American Psycho” remake even more. No party was complete without dancing and shouting “Already Will” at the top of our lungs.
Then came Phish and Crosseyed and Painless. My first Phish show at Red Rocks (7/31/2009) featured this groovy number. Every show I hope for a Crosseyed and I have been lucky enough to get 5 including an epic one at the Gorge last summer and a big bus out in Vegas this year. Phish also covers Citiesand its just perfect, especially the lyrics “I’ve got it figured out I’m the one that’s got it figured out, There’s good points, some bad points, It all works out…”. Besides Phish covering The Talking Heads, Widespread Panic brings the heat to Life During Wartime. I have never seen a crowd go more wild for a cover than in the Sunday heat of a Panic Sunday show at Red Rocks.
If you only know a little Talking Heads listen to it all, all of it. And if “This Must Be The Band” ever reunites, go see the greatest Talking Heads band ever.

I have come to love a good hat. Living in colorado you need a hate for all seasons. A beanie for winter and a sturdy Panama hat for out on the river. Lounging all day in the heat at Telluride Bluegrass? A floppy, but structured floppy hat. A structured floppy hat? I know it sounds weird, but if it’s too floppy you’re basically walking around with tunnel vision bumping into people. Recently, I have been loving the felt floppy, Panama and cowboy hats for winter. My mom hit the nail on the head with this amazing brown cowboy hat with turquoise detailing. Next on the list, a felt hunter green Panama style hat.
