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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
Listen to it on Sam’s site, and/or read the resulting article, The Facets of Jazz Through Gary Motley.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
