Spirit of Life

 
 

Here's something a little different.  It's not your standard music video.  Well, it's not a music video at all, just a photo with music playing in the background that someone put together, using Blackmill's song 'Spirit of Life'.  It's a one hour loop, that I could listen to over and over, and never get tired of.  It's from his album 'Miracle'.  The album is difficult to find, but is here if you want to give it a listen.  It's excellent background music to increase the productivity. :)

Lindsey & Alexander Jean

 
 

OK, what am I doing?  This came out a couple of days ago and although I watched it, I forgot to post it.  And I call myself a Lindsey fan? :P  Anyway, here's Lindsey with Alexander Jean.  I was fortunate enough to see both, last year in Chicago, for Lindsey's 'Warmer in the Winter' tour.  Lindsey and Mark are showing off the dancing skills once again.  Enjoy!

RIP Tim Bergling (Avicii)

Geez... Terrible news to hear today. :(  Even though I haven't been keeping up with a lot of EDM over the past couple of years, it's still a total shock to hear of someone dying at such a young age, especially when he was starting to figure life out.  

When I hear 'Avicii', I still think of him by his original name, Tim Berg(ling).  Penguin is forever trapped in my mind (this was before the whole 'Fade into Darkness' lyrics thing), and I remember seeing that name Tim Berg (on Sirius, before the XM part) .  I've probably literally heard Penguin 500 times.  I wanted to post a video of it (or at least the music), instead of his more popular stuff.  This is how I'll always remember him. 

RIP Tim...

 
 

Drop (Justin Furstenfeld)

Geez, I really wish I had a video of this from his Open Book Tour.  Maybe during his next Open Book, I'll be able to get one.  For now, this is the best that I could find.  While a video would be nice (to see that passion that Justin exudes), the words themselves are what speak to you in this version (and every other version) of Drop.

Before you click on to the next page, or wherever you're going, give this a short listen, please...

See you in a couple of days, Justin!  I can't wait! :)

 
 

Lindsey & Evanescence (Tour)!!!

Here I am, just a couple of days ago, not knowing when I'd get to see (or possibly meet) Lindsey again, and then BAM, an Instagram post, and a few hours later an email from her, announcing the upcoming summer tour with Evanescence.  Evanescence (especially Amy Lee), another favorite of mine.  I was wishing just a few months ago that I had went and seen them in concert earlier (in their career), not knowing now if I ever would get the chance.  Now, what are the odds???  The two together, and a full orchestra?  This is insane! :) 

I'm so freaking excited about this whole thing that I can barely keep a thought in my head.  Well, maybe I've settled down a little (just a tiny bit though) since yesterday, because I have tickets now, and yesterday, this wasn't the case.

Oh, I forgot to mention, yeah, first row (PIT area)!!!  This time, Ticketmaster screwed me again (just like the Lindsey/Warmer In The Winter tour in Chicago), while attempting to get them on the computer, but a backup plan was in place, using an iPad to search at the same time.  While the computer was 'processing my request' and sat there spinning, the iPad request went straight through.  I'll use even more devices next time.  :)  The only downfall, and I'm giving them another chance to 'right the ship', is CID Entertainment is handling the 'tour experience'.  The same company that had a dude in sweatpants, running around telling people that he'd take items away from them if they asked Lindsey to sign things during the meet in greet.  I give a better explanation here.  Anyway, it's Lindsey, so how bad can it be?  Others can try to screw it up, but in the end, it's only about Lindsey and nothing else.  So, c'mon 'dude in sweatpants', yell all you want, well, actually don't.  Go find a job where 'sweatpants' are appropriate work attire... :)

New Moby

Moby's new album came out two days ago and I've listened to it a couple of times already.  It reminds me of his recent stuff, but with new music (of course), which means I really like it.  I liked his older stuff too.  Long story, short, I'm a Moby fan, OK?  :)  Anyway, here's a link to it on iTunes if you want to listen for yourself.  Don't worry, the link is direct and makes no money for myself.  That's not what this site is about...

I was also going to post his latest video, but that's easy to find on YouTube.  Here's one of my favorites though.  It's from a few years ago, and really, really 'deep'...
