This right here...it was the agreed 'Theme' Ruthy and I looked at for our writing project.
She found it. Also said she loved this version much better than the original.
Mandy Moore--Cover for Umbrella
...I know what I'm doing for NaNo.
And if anyone can find me a downloadable track, it would be appreciated. It doesn't seem to be on any of Mandy's albums, and my google-fu sucks rocks.
...I may or may not add other songs to this--stuff we shared, themes from when we RP'd...other stuff. Feel free to add your own.
I don't like not knowing what the words mean.
So I just spent my evening with the Zune editor, a list of the 'english' letter version of japanese track titles, the original list of Kanji titles and three different kanji dictionaries spread out all over the floor so that not only does something besides squares show up on the Zune display for the soundtrack titles, but also so that I actually know what the titles say. In English as well as Japanese.
My head hurts.
...so does my left hip. XD
But at least it's done. For now. XD
So, anyhow, a few musical offerings, since I can't sleep:
( Because Youtube takes up too much space... )
Anyway, imho, they're shooting themselves in the foot. How do they expect anyone to buy their artists' music without advertising it? Unless, of course, they're only intersted in 'rich' cusotmers who have the cash to fork over.
Anyway, not my best commentary, but you'all get the idea. It'll be a shame if being able to enjoy music once more becomes a privilege only the 'rich' (IE: People with enough disposable income) may have.
It's up for whatever the big reward for Broadway shows is (Can't remember ATM because my brain just went into a corner to cry).
It might be up for an award...but that is the worst mangling of Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing' I've ever heard.
...And yes, that's allowing for the fact that many of the actors are parodying the singing styles of various 80s artists.
(Hint: Broadway singers rarely have the voice for rock and vis-versa. *Cries*)
Oh god, now they're going to sing 'High Enough' *Dives for remote control*
ETA; They're FLAT! OH GOD MAKE IT STOP!!!!
I actually find it pretty damn funny--especially since my Zune has frozen before, and Microsoft is recommending the same fix I needed to do last time. Here's hoping they're right, eh? *g*
(The worst part was work was hell today, and it would have been nice to be able to wear my headphones. As it was, the Zune jamming when I turned it on was the start of a bunch of unhappy things that happened. :/)
...Do you think Dad will buy me a new player if my Zune fails to reset? :D?

06/30/2008 11:02:54 EST Bon Jovi to play at free NYC concert
NEW YORK - New York City officials say Bon Jovi will play at a free concert in Central Park this summer.
The concert will be held July 12th.
The concert is billed as a prelude to the July 15th All-Star baseball game, which will highlight the final season at Yankee Stadium.
After all, without your fanbase, aren't you just another unpaid person with a cool artistic hobby? If your fans won't vote for you, who will?
Or...I dunno. Are the opinions of your peers more important than the people giving you their money?
What? I don't get it, but it seems kinda...disrespectful (if we're going to throw that word around) to turn your nose up at the people who put you on the map in the first place by being the ones that bought your music and are now 'standing up' for you by voting for you. I mean, really, are the people that listened to the stuff you put out that much less educated than a room full of older peers who have their own unfair rules in place for these sort of things?
...Or am I just too stupid to understand this one? (which is possible)
First they invited the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Now they've invited Eric Clapton.
Is it just me, or does North Korea's sudden friendliness, at least to american musicians, seem..strange?
(And no, not trying to be alarmist, just wondering what the sudden change in attitude is all about. It's possible I've missed something.)
I feel like the RCA dog right about now.
