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 […]

Happy Birthday, Daddy & Matt!

I spent most of today with my fam­i­ly at my par­ents’ house. It was a won­der­ful vis­it!

I got to meet my youngest nephew, Eli, for the first time. I was ill every time my broth­er and his brood came to town after his birth last fall (turned out I had pneumonia—I real­ly should learn […]

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 […]

De-Lovely

Sam and I just fin­ished watch­ing it–the 2004 Cole Porter biopic/musical. It was, absolute­ly, De-Love­­ly and Delight­ful and every oth­er pos­i­tive adjec­tive you can think of! Porter is my favorite com­pos­er, but hon­est­ly, I put this one in the Net­flix queue after see­ing a YouTube clip of John Bar­row­man singing “Night and Day” with Kevin […]

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 […]

Video: George Hrab, The Assumption

Fun video from George Hrab. I’ve heard of the guy quite a few times, and seen a fair num­ber of pho­tos, but this is the first time I’ve actu­al­ly heard his music. I like!

Many thanks to Chris Miller, who sent me a link to this video via Pownce.

A Cappella Music, Babylon5, and Firefly, Oh My!

This after­noon, I opened the blinds on the win­dows behind my chair, think­ing it would draw Kioshi off the mon­i­tor (his tail kept obscur­ing the screen) to look out the win­dows. Nope. He turned around, so at least his tail was­n’t in the way, but he was inor­di­nate­ly pleased with him­self because he could then […]

Relearning How to Play the Piano

I can’t remem­ber whether or not I bur­bled about this already, but if this is a repeat you can get extra hugs the next time I see you or some­thing. We have a work­ing, mar­velous, beau­ti­ful piano! It’s the freecy­cled Korg 88-key dig­i­tal that I men­tioned way back in Novem­ber, all clean and func­tion­al thanks […]

Further Prof of Insanity: Blog365

I got through NaBloPo­Mo, as ridicu­lous as it was to com­mit to post­ing at least once a day for a month. So of course that small suc­cess has led me, in a moment of more-than-usu­al-luna­­cy, to sign up for Blog365 (oth­er­wise known as “Out of the Fry­ing Pan, Into the Fire”). The pur­pose is fair­ly […]

KT Tunstall’s “Big Black Horse & the Cherry Tree”

Sam just sent me a link to this video. Incred­i­ble! I’ll def­i­nite­ly be look­ing for more of her music.
