Well, despite my misgivings, and though it looked as if I might kill him beforehand, Hyperactive Lad made it to another birthday yesterday. We celebrated by going to the rat house for dinner. Hm, more accurate to say *HE* celebrated, and his parents endured the experience. Ghawdaful horrendous covers of songs that had nothing to recommend them in the first place played at atrocious volume to compete with the over clocked games... I sound so old.

He actually commented earlier in the month: "I got one more year until I can get on the Teen Grid, right?" Yup, homework is going to be a bigger struggle next year.

I love the iPod, because today I have had Handel, followed in quick sucession by the Polecats, the Edgar Winter Group, Shriekback, Tom Jones, Offenbach, Rush, Max Raabe and Dave Brubeck. I can't wait for summer, when I can plug it into the car's sound system with the windows down. Aural whiplash, anyone?

I am finding the stuff I had forgotten about from my high school and college days (o/` Bright college days, oh carefree days that fly... o/`).

I had no idea that I was an alternative folk punk world music aficionado.

Heh. Heh. Heh.

Right, so I am attempting to gather all the appropriate music for various projects in one space, somewhere where it can be shared.

There are some excellently competent and creative remixers and DJs out there, so I throw it open to the list - what are your favorite ways to host/assemble/share music?

Note to self - you need to get the files organized and find out if ELO really did do a version of Tocatta and Fuge in D Minor with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Bonusu point for the same music by any or all of the members of Madness, Lynard Skynard, Stray Cats and/or Brian Setzer Orchestra.

Tonight and tomorrow are the dates for the Main Street Jazz Fest in the 'Boro, so if you're in the area, drop on by.

This is the first weekend for the Tennessee Renaissance Festival which runs all month.

There's also the 36th TACA Tennessee Craft Fair Nashville this weekend, which is always great for good art (among other things, but the good art is always there somewhere).

All that and Free Comic Book Day! A chance to try out a new artist or writer for free!

Still, we will be at the MSJF, and really early on Saturday (well, for us, anyway) at that. There is a 30% chance of rain tomorrow and a 50% chance that the tie-dyed family you see near the main stage is us. It's getting so you have to detail your fold/tie pattern to be "different".

Streaming audio for jazz music is always available on Jazz 89's website.

Pre-order phase for [ profile] cadhla's first studio album Stars Fall Home is reaching the end. This woman writes zombie/mermaid/demon/mad science love songs, people! How have you lived without her music this long?!? Order now and you won't have to exist in the slough of depression that not having the right song can do to the soundtrack of your life!

Did you go look?

Seanan McGuire ([ profile] cadhla) has opened preorders for Stars Fall Home and has reached 100 in less than two days. If you want a studio cut of Evil Laugh, Four-Color Love, or Pretty Little Dead Girl preorder so she can finish the pressing.

Yes, I have an ulterior motive (muahaha) because the sooner she sells out of Stars Fall Home, the sooner she may be motivated to record the next album, which I may be misremembering as Dead Things and Roses, the mad science album. SQUEEEEEHEEHEEHEEHEE!

ETA; [ profile] ladymondegreen has said the next album after Stars Fall Home may be tenatively titled Red Roses and Dead Things, which is still beautifully evocative of romance amongst maladjusted geniuses.

I have found yet another mode of torture.
Japanese Surf Versions of Classical Themes 
You heard me. MP3's of Beethoven, Strauss and Rimsky-Korsakov served up California style.

Now I just have to dig up my other classical album

Language lesson time!

No, not language lessons...
