insertaclevernamehere: I knew it. I knew it! (Thanks to delvintomymind for suggesting it. Hopefully that linked to his page. I have no idea how this stuff actually works.) Oh my gosh, watch it all right now!!!

tis a gift to be simple

A few weeks ago, the kids at church sang a wee program at a nursing home, and some of them played instrumental solos. Actually, all but one were taught by me… anywho, WonderGirl got up and played her first piano solo and was so fast that I didn’t get the camera recording until the second half. So here it is, about 4 seconds of Hot Cross Buns. Woohoo!!!

dear "sir":

Andrew Bird - Anonanimal It’s an Andrew Bird kind of day. In my next life, I’m going to ask for a helping of his creativity and talent. Seriously, he makes the violin work in a way that that almost no one ever does. You listen to him and think, “wow, what great instrumentals!” and not “Ooo, it’s a band. And a violin.” For anonanimal.

The cast of Harry Potter speaking the Freedom language.

a deeper look into why i can't stand most country music which is completely arbitrary except for the fact that when i hear it i start thinking about how i hate it and since i have a master's in music i should be allowed to hate it. i also feel this way about most mariachi music.


(via mar-see-ah:housingworksbookstore) Daniel Radcliffe sings “The Elements” - The Graham Norton Show - Series 8 Episode 4 - BBC One (via BBC) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Marseilles : Rio This band is so flippin awesome, I’m not even offended that they have a viola and a cello and NO VIOLIN. And I’m ALWAYS up for more violin. Amazing. This song (doesn’t hurt that it’s about Rio - too cute) is one of my number one picks for random kitchen dance parties. Even awesomer? You can download it free. Seriously. Do it. Then close your eyes and get jiggy wit it.

Faith is not only a feeling; it is a decision.

Forbidden Broadway’s Christina Bianco sings “Tomorrow” as Celine Dion, Judy Garland, Barbara Streisand, Kristen Chenoweth, Bernadette Peters, Eydie Gorme & Julie Andrews at The Friars Club. For Jane.

Please, please tell me you are watching The Good Guys on Fox. Bradley Whitford is gold and Colin Hanks is such a bendy straight man. Last night I thought I was going to need oxygen I laughed so hard. Seriously, somehow it makes Friday even awesomer. If it gets cancelled I’ll… I’ll do something drastic. Something. PLEASE, UNIVERSE. You took Pushing Daisies from me, and I’m still so, so vulnerable.

Sigur Rós - Ára Bátur I think this comment sums this up perfectly : “This song is set on repeat at the gates of heaven.” It’s 9+ minutes of crescendo and humanity. If you have 10 minutes and are in the need of a good tear-jerker, this is it.

soul music

rock of ages

rockin' the suburbs

free at last!

(viasaraplainandtall) Best thing I have seen in awhile. If you need a smile today then you need to watch this. (at Heathrow airport) (I know it’s a T-mobile ad, but I still love it)

the good, the bad, the ugly

a good start

It's Monday.
