Toad the Wet Sprocket’s New Album is Free on Amazon Prime

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:25:22 +0000

This morning I saw Justin’s tweet about Toad the Wet Sprocket which led me to their Wikipedia to confirm that they took their name from a Monty Python sketch. Along the way, I saw that they just released a new album. California Wasted stands out to me on my initial listen through. I went to…

Standing in the Shadows of Motown

I watched this documentary a little while back and loved it. Check it out if you haven’t already caught it.



Vienna Teng – Ain’t No Sunshine / Lose Yourself

Sun, 24 Nov 2013 22:42:25 +0000

width="510" height="383" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Mk5-G9XKbJE?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>I’m pretty darn impressed she can do this live.



Vienna Teng – Landsailor

Thu, 21 Nov 2013 17:46:52 +0000

width="510" height="383" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/CTvLXS35QJY?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>Perhaps my favorite track from her excellent Aims album. I prefer the more produced sound of this performance to this more stripped down version. The additional instrumentation works better for me on this song (I think it’s the percussion).



Brooke Annibale – Under Streetlights

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 16:28:26 +0000

width="510" height="287" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/CFzIYFuHIAA?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>Now that’s music. Check out the beautifully recorded set she did on Audiotree.



Roger Waters and Eddie Vedder: Comfortably Numb

Sun, 06 Jan 2013 21:18:56 +0000

width="510" height="287" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/QvdqU_jLeC4?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>I happened to be just down the street in NYC while this was going on live. Very few songs get worse when you add Eddie Vedder to them. I was glad to see that he and the lead guitarist both played their parts “straight”.



The Jive Aces – Bring Me Sunshine

Thu, 24 Nov 2011 06:32:19 +0000

Office Headphones

Mon, 20 Dec 2010 21:05:47 +0000

I’ve been meaning to get some headphones to keep at the office for a while. About a month ago I started doing some research, inspired by Amazon’s Black Friday deals and watching Jason Fried’s TEDx talk about interruptions. Here is what I’ve gleaned so far. There are three basic kinds of headphone designs that are…



Rated

Tue, 20 Feb 2007 18:20:31 +0000

I just finished rating the last of my unrated songs in iTunes. I’d done this back in 2005, but since then another 1000 or so songs made their way into my library1. Those are now rated as well – I guess it’s time to rip some more of my CDs. I blame Geof Morris for…



Them Strings Hurt

Fri, 05 Jan 2007 09:47:12 +0000

My cousin Ryan is crashing with us tonight on his way back to grad school in Ohio. Much like last time, we had a great time staying up too late diddling around on a couple of guitars. Also much like last time, I discovered I have zero calluses on my fretting hand these days. I…



Kudos to NBC

Sun, 10 Dec 2006 05:12:51 +0000

It took them a little while, but NBC has indeed put up a clean MP3 of the fantastic jazz rendition of O Holy Night that aired on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip last monday night. While it was frustrating not being able to find it right away, I’m thrilled that they have made it…

Let Down

Tue, 05 Dec 2006 08:29:56 +0000

Update: NBC has now made this song available for download. Here is a direct link. The jazz version of O Holy Night at the end of tonight’s episode of Studio 60 knocked my socks off. When the voiceover said to go to nbc.com for more on tonight’s music, I was very hopeful. I thought, “perhaps…

Vienna Teng at the Walnut Room

Thu, 03 Aug 2006 05:49:41 +0000

As planned, I went to Vienna Teng‘s concert at the Walnut Room1 this evening. I’ve seen Vienna perform a few times in smaller venues, but not since I’d moved to Denver from the Bay Area in 2004. As you would expect, her performance skills have matured quite a bit after spending the last few years…
