    Movies To Watch Right Now

    You should know that I don’t claim to be a movie buff nor do I have any credentials that rival the Siskels or the Eberts of the world. But I do know what I like. And though I would normally rather binge a Housewives marathon, preparing for the wedding–shedding weight and saving dollars–has inspired me to dive into my growing list of movies to watch. The backlog of movies I’ve missed while following the deep seeded love/hate relationships of the Kims, Nenes, Tamaras and Vickis is large. There are some serious classics that I’ve never had the pleasure of watching. But that mountain felt too large to tackle pre-wedding. So I started…

    Best & Worst of 2016

    2016 was a weird year. “Fake news” became a hot topic of debate. Technology took center stage. We said goodbye to some of the most influential characters of our time. And the Presidential race set new standards for America’s political process. I watched a moronic blowhard convince a portion of the country that he could lead them. No matter what side you voted for, this year’s race was hard to watch. Violence, racism, sexism and hatred played a part in the election more than in years past. We lost living legends who lit up our screens and stereos. Prince, David Bowie, Gene Wilder, America’s “father figures” Alan Thicke and George Michael. And in a tragic series of events,…

    Best & Worst of 2015

    Another year has come and gone. I don’t know about you, but 2015 was a crazy year for V for Vetrano. I spent most of it enjoying Nashville’s blossoming metropolis, continuing my fight to find balance between professional and personal and adding new faces to the growing LIV community. I learned a lot about myself this year [cue Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Changes”]. I started new jobs and ended old ones. Made new friends, while saying goodbye to others. And made life changing decisions that impact my future. While most of 2015 left me unsettled, hopping from one thing to another, the year’s final hours have turned out to be the best few weeks of the entire year and have…

    Best & Worst of 2014

    Another great year has come and gone. I don’t know about you, but 2014 was a great year for V for Vetrano. I spent most of it working in the music industry, managing artist’s unrealistic expectations, enjoying Nashville’s growing city and fighting to find the balance between professional and personal. Both done quite successfully, in my opinion. I learned a lot about myself this year, which led to the rebranding of my music blog Tragic Kingdom to Listen! It’s Vetrano, officially launching in the new year. But before I take you too far forward, I have to look back at the year of 2014. I’ve compiled my picks for the best & worst…
