Life, a Miscellany

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. You can take a peek at the test site here. I still have a lot of content to move but I don’t anticipate the style and navigation to change drastically. […]

I Mean to imeem

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 […]

She Makes with Lots of Shiny

You may have read somewhere (on Twitteror 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 and […]

Great Big Music

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 […]

Almost Interlude

I don’t have a musical interlude to post today. I almost embedded “Remembering Sunday” by All Time Low. That was before I got turned off by all of the live versions I found on YouTube. The audio on these is CRAP and singer comes off as a total asshat. Maybe he’s just young. Or lacking […]

Tis the Season

For this Friday’s Musical Interlude, I thought I’d go with something seasonal. I’ve always liked Deck the Halls. This arrangement is pretty bad ass (and played by a truly bad ass horn line). Happy Solstice, Christmas, Festivus, etc., etc. Carolina Crown, July 2008 (Yes, I’ve been waiting for months to post this.)

That Which is Sacred

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.

Follow Your Star

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 […]
