It had been a few years since I watched my favorite YouTube clip of all time and I had forgotten about the bonus part at the end where Stevie goes to ballet class.
"I have to do something else besides just rock and roll. Rock and roll is wonderful, and I love it, but it’s not everything. And it’s important for me to do other things, it always has been. I can’t live on just one. I’m a Gemini."

"My awesome god – part guardian angel, part invisible friend and part Stevie Nicks – wants me to have EVERYTHING I want, all the time, forever. That doesn’t mean I’ll get it. Me and my HP have an understanding – I don’t know the whole story of my own life, I only know a little bit of it, and even that little bit is muddled with my own wild passions and desires."  — Michelle Tea

It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween.

The Fleetwood Mac veteran and solo star picks the music that has inspired her through her 40-year career.

”[Blonde in the Bleachers] is about a girl who [sings] “tapes her regrets to the microphone stand, she says ‘you can’t hold the hand of a rock’n’roll man for very long’”. I never saw myself as the girl in the song – I identified with the rock’n’roll star. I was never gonna be the groupie. I was the star, I was sure of that. I listen to that song to this day. It’s on the playlist I have for when I’m preparing to go on stage.”


Holy shit, this whole thing* is amazing. I would not have guessed that Stevie Nicks was so influenced by Joni Mitchell. 
*I have erased the part at the end about John Mayer from my mind forever.

It’s the time of year when our thoughts turn to Stevie Nicks. Think about it before you … go home from work (thank you Bennett!)

Yesterday I was talking to a Californian person about what a bummer it is to have to wear shoes at all in the summertime and I was reminded of this song, in which Stevie Nicks describes her costume aesthetic and how it involves wearing “boots all summer long.”  “Song in which the performer describes his/her costume aesthetic” is a great genre of song.  Also in it: ‘Ziggy Stardust,’ and, in a way, ‘Bootylicious.’  (Um, UPDATE: DID YOU KNOW STEVIE NICKS WAS IN THE BOOTYLICIOUS VIDEO? YEAH, NO, I DIDN’T EITHER)

Happy 62nd birthday, Stevie Nicks!  I tried to think of a joke but they were all dumb.  “Edge of 62”?  Nah.
Today is an auspicious day.  Tickets are still available for the First Kiss event.

Molly Lambert posted this on my Facebook wall.  I kind of want to get one of those “moving picture frames” that they sell at Spencer Gifts and install this in it somehow and put it on my desk, alternatively get a giant version of same and hang it over my fireplace if I ever have a fireplace.
