Long-Delayed Earworm: Lana Del Rey

So you might have noticed the unfortunate dearth of Monday Earworms lately. Sorry about that. Mondays are challenging because they’re heavy workload days for me. And frankly, at this point in the semester, every day is packed. But here’s an earworm that’s been rattling around in my head a lot.

Also, if you’re in Houston — and maybe in other cities, too — you might have noticed that a certain radio station has been playing Christmas music for about four weeks now, give or take a few days. And it’s all the same tired shlock they always play. Never fear, I’m curating a fabulous 12 Days of Holiday Music for you, coming up soon.

That’s why this will be the last earworm you get from me until then, because I’ll be starting the 12 Days series up in about a week or so, give or take a few days.

Back to grading…

Monday Earworm: Lana Del Rey

It is most emphatically summertime here in my fair city. School is out, at least for many of us. Temps in the mid-90s with a real-feel of over 100, and hurricane season is underway, even if the Texas Gulf Coast won’t likely see a ton of action for a while yet.

So here’s a sultry little swing for early June, courtesy of Lana Del Rey.

And in case you’re looking for some fun workshops to indulge in this month, I’m still teaching a few. My zine workshop (in-person) through Writespace starts Thursday. My one-night-only Daily Dose of Poetry kickstart is online Monday evening next week via Write About Now. And I’m doing a four-week poetry workshop online through Grackle & Grackle starting next Tuesday evening. (Let me know if you want some great discounts on the registration for that one.) All workshops will be generative in nature and will include feedback on your work. Click on those links to register for any and all!
