Together as one. The Warrens on the hunt for clues of the paranormal, the unexplained.

Mercier Philip “Merce” Cunningham [b. April 16, 1919 – d. July 26, 2009] was an American dancer and choreographer who was at the forefront of American modern dance for more than fifty years. He is also notable for his frequent collaborations with artists of other disciplines.
I have been neglecting working on digging up soul/ funk/ r & b finds over these past few years. Here, a few more discs to add to the mixture.
Recent secondhand hot wax finds:
Love To Love You Baby [Casablanca/ 1975] – Donna Summer
Thank You, Baby [Avco/ 1975] – The Stylistics
Ooh-Child: Stairsteps & Others [Pickwick/ 1969] – various artists
Somewhere in The Carolinas – Friday evening we sauntered downtown to an art crawl and dinner. This outfit was simple – a late 1940s bohemian look. Perfect for a warm and muggy night. You can’t go wrong wearing black and white. It is very clean and sharp. The ankle length black skirt is lightweight and nice when it catches a cool-ish breeze. The high heeled black sparkle, vintage style mules come courtesy of Bordello shoes. I bought mine new a few years back. This style [called ‘Genie’] is a perfect replica of a Polly of Hollywood shoe. Love. Love. Love. Bordello no longer churns out this look, so if you are interested in a pair, do an online search. A few vendors are re-selling them on Etsy, Poshmark and Ebay. The bat shaped sunglasses with red tinted lenses I picked up at a party store. The outfit and faux gold bracelets were sourced from thrift shops.
