These last two weeks, I’ve lacked inspiration and I’ve had little time to do much besides getting the new Starrynight website ready to go live. I still have a lot of content to move but I don’t anticipate the style and navigation to change drastically. Unless of course, some tells me that hate so-and-so and […]
I finally decided to give imeem a shot. It’s a social networking site, much like Facebook, for the extreme media lover. It allows you to upload, share and discover music, video, and photos, with the expected arsenal of social networking tools (friending, groups, embedding, etc.). A free imeem account allows you to upload your own […]
You may have read somewhere (on Twitter or maybe I blogged about it?) that Howl, my beloved iPod, died. Tim lent me his for the time being and, knowing my birthday was coming up, suggested that I opt for a Nano or an iPod Touch. I was taken with the Touch: wifi web browsability, mail […]
Meant to post about the Great Big Sea concert a week ago but er, life. To sum up: awesome. The boys were well-rested and were just starting to tour again. The music was excellent but the balance was bad at certain points. Sean was drowned out a few times. From our vantage point, Bob was […]
For those of us following along at home, here is a list of 2009 programs as announced by competing DCI World Class corps. I’ve also included links to #drumcorps who are on Twitter. This list is as complete as possible at time of posting. I will Tweet future updates to this list on my Twitter […]
I think I may love these boys and girls. Carolina Crown and the final Passing of the Metronome (when the metronome is passed from pit to staff- more description in the comments at YouTube). Here’s a link to the same from a different angle.
News I’m excited about: DCI just announced that the alumni of Star of Indiana (the same folks who later created Blast) will be giving an exhibition performance at the 2010 World Championships in Indianapolis. Star will be doing a ‘best of’ from their past shows. They MUST do Medea from their 1993 show (the corp’s […]
On Saturday night, Russell and I watched Stage Door Canteen (1943), a World War II era propaganda piece with a very long list of stars and a number of big bands (Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Kay Kyser and others). It was fascinating to watch: part time capsule, part musical, part socio-historical study. The thing that […]
This makes me happy. Andrew Volpe and the boys of Ludo performing “Love Me Dead” unplugged.
I’ve had really vivid dreams the last two nights, which is odd, since I haven’t dreamed at all for years (or if I do, I don’t remember them). I woke up this morning feeling off-center again. It’s quite disorienting. To help combat dream-residue weirdness, I’ve spent my morning listening to the music of Zoë Keating, […]
