Silly Saturday

June 20, 2009

This is perhaps the greatest thing I’ve seen this past week.  It is amazing how they distilled every cheesy nineties pop song into its most basic elements.

Dave Matthews and Lyrics

April 22, 2009

I can’t get enough of the latest Dave Matthews Band single.  I’m really looking forward to the new album.  I’m never disappointed when I go to read his lyrics and this line really stuck out to me today.

Funny the way it is how someone’s broken heart becomes your favorite song.

Check out the whole song below.

Study Break #4

April 15, 2009

Today I have a clip from one of my favorite composers: Felix Mendelssohn.  I had not heard this piece until I stumbled across it in my iTunes.  It may not work here so follow the link to youtube and check it out.  I cannot believe how fast the pianist’s hands move.

Today’s Study Break is Drumbone by the Blue Man Group.  The inventiveness of these guys never ceases to astound me.  Check it out.

One-takes all the rage.

April 4, 2009

I’m pretty sure three is not a trend, but all the same I just saw Metric’s video for “Gimme Sympathy.” It is a cool way of doing a one-take video. I would love to see how they choreographed the changes. You’ll see what I mean when you watch it.

The other one-take videos are Beyonce’s Single Ladies. And the absolutely brilliant reversed one-take that Mute Math made for Typical.

Update: In retrospect, this title makes a whole lot more sense when you had a hyphen.

Going to see U2!

March 30, 2009

I have waited for this opportunity since the time I was around ten and heard “Where the streets have no name.”   That song still makes me hide my face for a second or two.  It will be incredible to finally see The Edge in real life.  To be honest I had been hoping to get field seats at Skydome (now known as the Roger’s Center) which were a surprisingly reasonable price.  Alas it was not to be, and after reading that they sold out almost immediately I’m just grateful I’ll get to see them.  Although I’ll have to take my binoculars. 

List of Concerts I want to see before I die.
The Police
U2

U2… Coming soon!

February 28, 2009

Not that this will really be news to anyone but U2 has a new album coming out on Tuesday.  From what I’ve heard on Youtube, etc.  It is very exciting.  I was not initially a fan of Get On Your Boots, but I’ve grown to like it.  After seeing this video of Breathe I’m more excited to hear the album when it drops this week.  I’m also hoping I’ll get to see them when their tour inevitably brings them through Toronto.
