I love, love, LOVE the Voodoo Daddies. They emerged around the time I started swing dancing in the early 90s, and I couldn't get enough. They just released a new album (a tribute to the great Cab Calloway) called How Big Can You Get. Click on the image below to listen to clips and order the album...

For all my fellow New Englanders out there, great news - Georgetown Cupcake just opened a new shop on Newbury Street in Boston! I can't wait to check it out. There was also a recent opening in SoHo, and one coming up in Los Angeles in September. For more info, click here.

Here's a video of Fred Rogers receiving a lifetime achievement Emmy award. His acceptance speech is wonderful.
