Can't seem to figure out how to embed from YouTube anymore, but...

This right 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.

My Zune doesn't like kanji.

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. does my left hip. XD

But at least it's done. For now. XD

The only problem with a long vacation is that I invaribly screw my sleep schedule up (my natural rhythm is to sleep from approx 1 am-8:30 am...a far cry from the 9:30pm-5am I should be sleeping because of my job schedule.

So, anyhow, a few musical offerings, since I can't sleep:

Because Youtube takes up too much space... )

We Weren't Born to Follow.

I think I found a new anthem for the next few years. Kinda needed one anyway. :)

A work friend sent this to me.


Only, not quite

Enjoy! :)

((Clue, if Cynthia is online at all, she might, uh, 'appreciate' this. Metallica is the band I got to go see with here when Tim decided he didn't want to go))

On the news last night that some people are pushing to have people start to pay for regular old radio broadcasts (Not the high def stuff--the stuff you cna pick up on any old radio). The arguement is the same one presented for why you can't do free downloads etc, which is that the artists don't get paid for each time their song is played (Oddly enough, I've been under the impression that radio stations actually did have to pay some sort of fee to be allowed to play an artists' stuff since I was in my teens. Did this arrangement change at some point?)

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 a new musical.

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*

So, apparently there's a reason other than 'imminent electronic death' that my Zune froze up this morning.

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.

That the whole salmonella tomato scare has me walking around with the Attack of the Killer Tomatoes theme playing in my head?

'Terra in Black' (Original is just called 'Terra's Theme' IIRC)

Somehow, these guys here seem to be missing the point; or else I am.

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)
silverthorne: (Footmonster)
I was singing along with the songs I put up in an earlier post today.

Not only did Foot come over to be pet while I did this, she fell asleep purring with my hand on her belly.

It's a shame, really. But maybe Richie will start to wise up, now.

Oh, Hell.

You buy the Fame CD to replace the old, beat up cassette...

...And then tranfer it onto your MP3 player whole cloth.


(And yes, I have Dirty Dancing on there, too.)

silverthorne: (Whisky and Piano)

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.
