My ears are happy

My feet are moving and my heart is lighter. Why?

I’ll tell you why.

Dar Williams.

*sigh*

A musical and lyrical genius. Keyboards, guitars, MANDOLINS and such an amazing voice. I might have to cross to the other side and marry this girl.

Song of the moment: “Farewell to the Old Me.” And I’ll give you a lyrical snippet since I know how much you love them!

How can I ask love to hold the mystery
When just look at me
It’s all push and pull collateral
I don’t want to be the one who gets the next surprise
I’ll plan it out this time
Though I used to think that things were meant to be

So farewell to the old me
Farewell to the old me
My life is working better now
It’s always changing anyhow

And so now you need to hop over to InSound and buy some or all of her albums.

Bah and Meck and Cashmere

Oh you know I say “bah” all the time. And it’s not a sheep sound, it’s like the “bah” in “bah humbug.” And meck, well, meck is a cross between “meh” and “heck.”

So.

Bah! and Meck!

I’m tired.

Braeden has a pretty wicked cold and an ear infection. Which makes for rough nights. And the medicine I am on has been regulated (increased) which for me means an intense headache. But that will fade within a week or two and so I need to deal with it.

Work is still going very well. I have a katrillion projects on my plate, but I’m embracing it, because it is work I love to do. It feels good to have creative control back and to be appreciated as a web developer. I have even been called a web design genius recently. Haha. I’m definitely not a genius, but it felt good to hear.

Burlap to Cashmere. Where do I come up with these things? I know. I know. But again this is a band that I enjoy. You can listen to 30 second tidbits at Amazon. I recommend “Chop, Chop” and “Mansion.”

And if you like it, the singer has a solo album that you can hear samples from on (the oh-so-dreaded) MySpace. Enjoy!

Crooked Fingers

Oh don’t pretend you don’t have crooked fingers. We all do.

But not, really, “Crooked Fingers” is a band I have come to enjoy. And right now I am listening to their song “Twilight Creeps” which I find quite lovely. You will hear a trumpet, it will make you feel lighter. =o)

Lyric snapshot:

“Why does everybody always act so tough, when all anybody wants is to find a friend?
Why is everybody always trying to hide the heart which hidden has no use?”
