All the way to eleven!

When was the last time you shut the blinds, kicked off your shoes, grabbed your favorite faux mic or guitar (hairbrush, broom, etc.) and turned up the music so loud that you can’t even hear yourself singing along even though you are practically screaming? Months? Years? Regardless, it’s been way to long. Change that today and remember just how good it feels. There is a bevy of Spinal Tap inspired happenings today since it is 11.11.11 and why not? Any reason to honor the music I love to crank is a good enough reason for me. Let’s make it count with a playlist worthy of the day. Four to the floor, let’s go.
