Woo hoo!

Plinky asked, “What was the last thing you got real­ly excit­ed about?” Home­made Ukule­les My ukulele! I wish I had a pho­to of her to post, but I don’t. She’s a trav­el tenor, which means that she’s a bit big­ger than the “stan­dard” (sopra­no) ukulele most peo­ple are used to see­ing, but also thin­ner than a […]

On the Radio

Plinky asked, “Do you ever lis­ten to the radio any­more?” Car Radio I only lis­ten to the radio in the car. In fact, I don’t think I’ve got a radio at home any­where. If I do lis­ten, I almost always choose the local NPR affil­i­ate to lis­ten to. If it isn’t time for the one […]

Gratitude

1) My Dad­dy, and his (ongo­ing) recov­ery from surgery. 2) Every­thing I learned about music from J.D. Mardis and all the oth­er teach­ers over the years. 3) Easy access to a pool.

Movies That Sound as Good as They Look

Plinky said, “Name a movie that has a great sound­track.” Sound­track Cov­er Print Out There are so many! If I had access to my full music library right now, we could be here all day, because i do love movie sound­tracks. For sim­plic­i­ty’s sake, I decid­ed to leave musi­cals out of this dis­cus­sion.  My first […]

A Long Time Hobby: Music

Plinky asked, Which of your hob­bies have you been doing for the longest amount of time? When did you start?” Music (232/365) That would be music. I’ve been singing since I was a small child in church choir. The way my moth­er’s fam­i­ly makes music, I could hard­ly avoid it (not that I want­ed to). I […]

Music from Defying Gravity?

We’ve been watch­ing Defy­ing Grav­i­ty on Hulu, and enjoy­ing it. The music is one of the appeal­ing fac­tors, but I can’t find any infor­ma­tion about what songs by which per­form­ers are used in most of the episodes. TV.com has infor­ma­tion for two of them, but not the rest. I don’t sup­pose any of you know […]

Plinky: Three Songs I’d Sing at a Karaoke Bar

Their text actu­al­ly says, “If you pay me enough, I’d sing these songs.” I would­n’t have to be paid, though. I’ve nev­er actu­al­ly been in a karaoke bar, but I love to sing, so there are plen­ty of songs that I would be will­ing to sing! “Some­thing to Talk About” by Bon­nie Raitt “Hold­ing Me Tonight” by Car­ly Simon […]

Juno!

Katie got the Juno DVD last week, so we all watched it togeth­er Fri­day night. She’s been gush­ing about it since see­ing it in the the­ater, and adores the sound­track, so we were cer­tain­ly curi­ous. It was an odd movie, fair­ly quiet–no car crash­es, big tragedies, etc. It was real­ly well-done, and I was pleased […]

Semester done!

I took my project man­age­ment final tonight, so I’m done with the semes­ter! Now I’m try­ing to down­load the text­book files for next semes­ter, but the ebook serv­er is hav­ing Issues.  In the mean­time, I’m lis­ten­ing to some love­ly new music, free and legal, over at The­Six­ty­One. I don’t know how Sam found out about […]
