    Oooh. Last one. Civil Twilight. They sound a bit like early U2. Lead singer likes falsetto as much as Bono, at least ....

    My band is on hiatus until next year. So I'm listening to this clip, playing in a theater pit, and waiting for the video guy to prop the vids he took in October.

    Comment: take a look at the "Pipe Dream" videos -- which some people have thought are of a real instruments, judging from some of the YouTube comments and linkbacks -- you can easily think of how to build some of it in reality. Fortunately or not, I'm not going to attempt that feat, tho. However, it would be kewl .

    Rendering this all in 3D on a computer from even 4 years ago wouldn't have been overwhlemingly taxing, but it would have taken awhile.
    Cool stuff --I had forgotten about these robot songs.

    One of my teen students brought this one in to learn.
    I asked around and all my teen students know it so it's what the youngsters are listening to along with Gundam Style
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkTb9GP9lVI
    Turns out it's just a I V7 tune that modulates from C up to Eb.
    So it's a great tune to play along with and work on scales.

    I was listening to Jeff Buckley at work, today. Recommended.

    To tell you the power of teh Google, I forgot the name of this singer, but I remembered he died in 1997 (at age 30). So I Googled "singer died 1997." Fourth hit. He's not #1 because 1997 is the year John Denver died, too.

    I was "exposed" to this meme awhile ago. It's "gandam," not "gundam." It's a region in China, not a giant mecha -- the linky I posted mentions the rather common spelling error.

    A giant mecha would have been more interesting on Good Morning America, tho.

    I'm trying to figure out what he's got on the tuning pegs. Pickup? Extension?

    Coworkers dressed up as this guy and copped some of his moves. This is the first time I peeked to see what the deal was. Somehow this comes across as another "pet rock" kind of fad. Maybe that's just me.

    First, an early Christmas present to myself: St. Vincent's Strange Mercy album (that's her last album before her collaboration with that dude from Talking Heads). The title track is on YouTube.

    Second, I've been listening to Gabriel Fauré for the past few nights. Quote from the Wikipedia article that I find very accurate:

    The music critic Jerry Dubins suggests that Fauré "represents the link between the late German Romanticism of Brahms ... and the French Impressionism of Debussy."
    I'm extremely fond of "Requiem in D Minor," but his short pieces, like this Sicilienne, are quite nice, too. (BTW, I'm fond of Darius Milhaud, too, and I can hear a good bit of Fauré in some Milhaud stuff -- but I haven't been listening to him, lately.)

    You don't seem to have to move too many notes around to get to the Harry Potter theme tune!!!

    Exactly. Plagiarism is alive and well.

    For me it's a CD I got for my wife for Xmas - Maximilian Hornung playing Dvorak's Cello concerto and Saint-Saens cello suite and Romance. Not sure if it's available stateside yet. I was lucky enough to see him in a small concert earlier this year. Stunning - if you get the chance, go see....

    The similarity has been noted by a few. You could make a strong argument that all music is plagiarism -- and some folks have.

    I might listen to that tonite. YouTube has it. Not by Maximilian Hornung, but I've liked the stuff I've heard from Saint-Saëns.

    Education: the path from cocky ignorance to miserable uncertainty.

    The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they’re too heavy to broken.

    Not today, but on Jan 1st is the Mummers parade-Philly;s folk-new years street party.
    Think "Italian mardi-gras" meets DCI meets Broadway & youre getting close.

    "String Bands" are the feature musical groups,
    consisting of mostly Saxes, Banjo's, Accordions, Glockenspeils, & a couple other stragglers.
    No strings or brass allowed.

    Bass saxes are obligatory. Some bands have several.

    Listening to "Mission to Moscow" and working that nasty bari line all holiday break. Yes, we play it that fast.

    I'm gettin' closer to where I wanna be with it. But when I practice it too long, I stop reading the music and just play!

    I'm listening to Glen Miller's In The Mood. Playing that song as one of our many songs for Jazz Ensemble and possibly for the Dubuque Oktoberfest. Amazing song in my opinion

    You ever hear the story associated with that song. Clue, the tenor is the male suitor.
