Fun links: magazines, radio shows, and sangria.

I know a lot of smart and talented people. They aren't just people who sit in their basement being creative souls; they are folks who actually do something. I don't post links or suggestions here often enough. It's time for that to change.

I saw Stacy Stiletto post this on Facebook last week. She's always been a master of design, and that genius extends to cocktails, as well. Stacy also happens to be one of my favorite people in the world. If you're having a party, consider hitting her up for some of her homemade sangria. I'm currently drooling over the "Lazy Lemonade:"

Email stacystiletto@yahoo.com for details, especially if you live in Kentucky. I think it's still illegal to ship alcohol over state borders, at least in Kentucky, so I'll have to wait until David graduates to get a taste.

I've been intending to tell y'all about this other website for months now, but better late...  Beth Newberry and Niki King recently launched on online magazine about urban Appalachian culture. It's called The Hill Ville. It didn't take more than a couple of weeks after publication before they were receiving plenty of accolades and lecture invites. 

Beth and Niki are the kind of women you'd want as your boss, your teacher, and also your drinking buddy. They're also terrific writers with lots to say. Add The Hill Ville to your blog roll or Google reader, Bloglovin', or whatever you're using these days. Here's a live radio interview with Beth and Niki  from WFPK's "Roots'n'Boots." 

Speaking of "Roots'n'Boots," you should listen to whole program sometime. When I can stay awake late enough on Sunday nights (the time change messes everything up!), I like to stream WFPK just to listen to Michael Young's show. It's 5p-8pm ET and is always a great soundtrack for a Sunday. I feel somewhat behind in the whole Americana music scene now that I'm such a sleepyhead and can't get my weekly dose of Roots 'n' Boots.

I should probably disclose that I know all the aforementioned folks really well. But then again, I met all but one of them in some sort of professional capacity (radio interviews, magazine interviews, and photo shoots) before becoming actual friends with them. There's a lot to be said for meeting people on the job. These folks are all not only great at their jobs, but great people. So who cares if we're friends?


  1. Thanks for the shout out Brigid! Holler if you meet any urban Appalachians across the pond we need to write about.

  2. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve 4
    emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
