Shuffling away

So I’m sitting here at work this afternoon, listening to the music on my phone on shuffle.

And it occurs to me that I really need to add some more up-tempo music.  Most of the music I seem to have is kind of slow and low.  If I were depressed . . .

Man, it could get really ugly.

The floor is open for suggestions, with a few caveats.  I despise country music.  Metal, techno, and punk generally give me a terrible headache, and my taste runs more toward Coldplay, Jack Johnson, and The Fray lately. 

Rockin’ tune

Yikes – sorry for the really scary image there.  Click it, you’ll like it.

Via Miss Cellania

Cello. Seriously.

I discovered this artist while listening to a podcast of RadioLab.  Beautiful and haunting music, and you should definitely listen to that podcast, too.

Oh, that’s catchy

Via Spare the Rock. I’m definitely adding this song to the kids’ media player, and probably my iPhone too, because damn, that’s catchy.

Cute song

Found at OWTK. I like her voice and the music is nice – it’s different than most of what we have (which is rather . . . folky). I think the kids would like it.


Creative Block? Try Moodstream – ReadWriteWeb

What is Moodstream? It’s a concepting tool. The modern version of
the fireplace. An interactive art piece. TV for the future. It’s a
website we created for and with Getty Images to showcase all of their
offerings – still, video and sound – and inspire interactive creatives.
And it’s really, really fun to use.

For your enjoyment

You just might see someone you know at around the 3 minute mark . . .And every click will result in a donation to the Humane Society of the United States, I hear.

Click away, share with friends, rate it up at metacafe.

Four things, really.

  • I am a pest.  I was really curious about the school situation, so I just emailed the Superintendent this morning.  This afternoon, I got my reply.  Lauren stays at her current school next year, YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
  • Also, I got another email this morning.  A while back, a kids’ music group was looking for pictures of kids with their dogs.  Hmmmmm.  I sent in a few, and she’s going to be in the video!  She has no idea, so don’t tell her!  I’m going to surprise her next Tuesday when it’s released.  I’ll post it here, natch.  It’s not my typical favorite sort of music, but it is a catchy tune.  Plus L will be thrilled to be in a music video . . .
  • What was that third thing?  Ummm.  Well . . .  OH, YEAH!  I remembered.  I really wanted to test out posting using the extension from Zemanta.  Seems to work.  Not sure how useful I’ll find it, especially since I almost always use ScribeFire for blogging, but we shall see.  Worth looking at, anyway, and easy enough to remove if I don’t use it.
  • Now for a downer.  I have a thing about shoe bargains.  I found some fabulous shoes at Endless and marked down more than 70% at Amazon, and I was ready to buy them.  Then I saw that Endless won’t price match with Amazon any more.  Sniff, sniff . . .

Entertainment Filtering

Neat site, found it on Read/Write Web. Personalized content filtering for music, movies, etc.


(Yet Another Post About Kids’ Music)

Today, we are leaving work early, picking up the kids, and going to Lexington to see the Deedle Deedle Dees.

Should be fun!
