Susan Sings

You have to watch this video all the way through. And I hope you’re sitting down. And Simon’s face throughout the whole thing makes me smile.

Go. Go watch it now!

Did you watch it?

Wow. The whole “don’t judge a book by its cover” thing really echoes in my head. I’ve watched this about 3 gajillion times and it brings tears to my eyes every time.

This is incredible! I don’t know how she keeps her hands going while singing into the mic! From the patty cake hands to the whistle…it’s all so cute! You can read the lyrics here.

103 days…

No, I’m not counting down the days until our wedding. We have over 200 days…*sigh*…

No, I’m not counting down the days until Bush is no longer in office. As of right now, I really don’t have any opinion concerning politics.

I’m counting down the days to the public release of one of the greatest juxtapositions of musical talent to ever grace our ears.

Sean Watkins

Jon Foreman

Both are PHENOMENAL guitarist/vocalist/song writers and on January 20, 2009, Fiction Family‘s self-titled album will be available for all ears to enjoy.

You can read more about it in this article. My favorite quote: “We came up with a few cowboy rules for the project: No double tracking. No pussyfooting. No tuning of vocals.”

[Warning: There will be so much talent on this album, my head might just explode.]

I don’t know how I ever lived without it…

My new favorite website is definitely Pandora. It’s fantastic!

Pandora is the radio…online…but without all the stupid commercials and you get to choose what music you want to listen to! All you have to do is register for membership (don’t worry, it’s free!) and then create your own station based on a favorite artist or song. Pandora then compiles thousands of songs and artists into your very own radio station!

The first radio station I made was, of course, Nickel Creek. It played tons of songs-many by Alison Krauss and other bluegrass-ish artists. Also on the playlist was music by an artist named Joshua Radin. I immediately fell in love with his voice and music so I created a station based on him. This has been my favorite and the one I listen to most often because I heard of music by artists I’ve never heard before such as:

  • Imogen Heap
  • Rachel Yamagata
  • Josh Kelley
  • Matt Nathanson
  • Josh Rouse

And it played music by artists I had heard before but didn’t have the opportunity to listen to as often as I’d like:

  • Iron and Wine
  • Ben Harper
  • Jack Johnson
  • Glen Hansard
  • Andy Davis

The Joshua Radin station plays Nickel Creek, too, so I’m pretty much in Heaven when I listen to Pandora. I also learned recently that Pandora has a widget for the Vista desktop! Now I can close my browser and still listen! It’s great!

Pandora also gives you information on the artists and songs and you can give a song a thumbs up or down! There are tons of other features that I haven’t figured out yet so if you figure out something new, let me know!
