This girl blows me away. And it’s not just her playing chops, which are lovely and and dynamic and musical as hell. But this is also a great display of what an incredible piece of music Bohemian Rhapsody is. Because what she’s playing? Yeah, that’s pretty much all the crazy shit that’s going on in that song.
Once upon a time, before I wrote stories (well, before I went back to writing stories), I wrote music. And sang and played it, and recorded it. I made an album, with the help of two incredibly talented friends. And then – I dropped the ball. I didn’t release it, didn’t market or sell it. I don’t know why. Well, I kind of know why, but that explanation would just devolve into a bunch of dumb psychobabble. Anyway, I recently decided to at least just put the damned thing out there. I’m still proud of it, some songs more than others. And it’s not like I’m going to take over the world with my music, anyway. People may as well be able to hear it. So, today’s Music Monday is some shameless self-promotion.
Reverbnation, btw, is one of the most annoying and user-unfriendly sites I’ve dealt with in a while. At least from the artists’ end. Listening is pretty easy, though. Enjoy! Or, not.
Inadvertently continuing with the hotties and their pups theme…
Can’t get enough of this. I think, however, that this is one of those artists you have to hear/see perform on stage before you can really appreciate them. I fell in love catching St. Vincent on Letterman one night.
Couldn’t resist sharing this from the David Gandy Facebook.
My birthday was a while back, and my super-awesome husband surprised me, really surprised me, with tickets to see this fabulous, randomly addictive French band. I have no idea what to expect when we go. I also did not expect those tickets. I still laugh at that, because it was nothing I had asked for, but a perfect, perfect surprise. Here, have some!
James Franco as Adam Ant? YES PLEASE.
