Monday Morning Music – Johnny Winter RIP

I had planned to post at least one Weird Al Yankovic video this morning in honor of his new album coming out last week. All the videos I’ve seen have been outstanding and super funny. Also, as @davisac1 tweeted last week:

However, there’s been a death in my musical family again, so it seems more important to honor that event instead.

Monday Morning Music

I’ve been a fan of Skepchick for a while now. They post a lot of interesting, useful stuff. Aggravating stuff, too, but that’s all part of the mix, ain’t it? They also post fun stuff.

Monday Afternoon Music

A little late with my Monday video today. Sorry about that. I’m using the fact I’m still recovering from an awesome, busy vacation as my excuse. Spent last week visiting friends in Maryland and Philadelphia. So good to see some of the people I love best in all the world. Continue reading

Monday Morning Music

I was playing a music game on my personal Facebook page last week. You know the one, where someone posts a music video and if you like it they give you a letter. Then you pick an artist/band starting with that letter and post your own video. And on & on. I ended up posting five seven videos because folks kept giving me letters. My favorite of what I came up with? Continue reading

George Gershwin’sRhapsody in Blue” used to be one of my favorite songs to play on the piano when I was still playing. Even with my little hands, it was a lot of fun. (Mr. Gershwin had ginormous hands and would write 13-note-wide chords, the bastard)

Words In Progress

It’s been a couple of frustrating writing months since I last posted an update on such things. Going through a patch where writing is more of a struggle than a joy right now. Which I know happens, but it’s still frustrating. For example, that story about sentient plant life w/an older woman protagonist I was working on in April went nowhere. And I’m in the midst of rewriting “Piper Deez and the Case of the Clanless Woman.” Continue reading

Monday Morning Music

Found myself in the mood for Janelle Monáe this morning (not an uncommon thing) and came across her performance at the “Women of Soul” concert held earlier this year at the White House. How could I pass up sharing her rendition of “Goldfinger?”

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something.

This post originally appeared over at the now-deceased Snobbery blog. Figured I’d repost here, as folks seemed to like it, back when it went up on January 20, 2014. Continue reading

“I liked white better”*

Are you a Tolkien fan? You should check out Sweating to Mordor, then. It’s a lot of fun following Eric’s exercise adventure and the Fellowship’s journey. Eric dives into all kinds of detail in Tolkien’s creation and illustrates his topics with photos taken with antique cameras. It is several levels of cool. Continue reading

Monday Morning Music

I’m a latecomer to the band Primus, I have to admit. I didn’t get into them until after hearing Les Claypool‘s 2009 solo album Of Fungi and Foe. Primus’s 2011 cd Green Naugahyde sealed the deal, partly because of this song.

English: Lee Van Cleef in Death Rides a Horse ...

Which song is that?
