Another Wednesday, Another Show: KRCX Show for 10/05/16

Hey all, here’s my show this this week, which I just got done with. What can I say, I love radio!

 

Here is the link to the article about the lady who found issue with the song “Norf Norf.” It’s great. There’s a twelve minute rant.

Of course, if you want to see what else is going on at KRCX, this different colored text is a link to their website (krcx.org).

Also, listen to them live here!  http://tunein.com/embed/player/s234171/Peace,  y’all!

Valentine’s Day

Hey all.

It’s Valentine’s Day. I’m alone, but that’s okay. That’s kind of my own choice, really.

I still think love is worth celebrating. All sorts of love. Love for family and friends, for pets, and for yourself, as well as any significant other(s).

So here’s a lovey-dovey playlist I put together on Spotify. It’s all just explicitly love songs. I made another playlist, that it not all “love songs” per se, but still reminds me of love, but I don’t think that’s the one I’m going to share right now. So here’s love songs.

Anyways, have fun celebrating love. You’ll hear from me more tomorrow.

Peace!..

That Playlist, or Whatever…

So here’s a playlist, with some of the songs I was posted yesterday, and a few more that I’ve added.

I’m fairly proud of this playlist, mostly because it’s a pretty good mount of music, but also because it’s a rough draft, and it’s definitely not near done. So, this is your chance to help!

If you have a specific song that you think I should add, that really is a love song, please send it to me! I would love to add as much music as possible to this list, from all genres, all that speak to the beauty of loving another person.

Anyways, I think that’s it for now. I’m pretty tired.

Peace!…

Love Songs

I feel fairly in love right now? With anyone specific? Not really? (Or maybe I’m lying and there is someone… Either way that’s for me to know, until I feel like talking about it, okay?)

Anyways…

Here’s some songs that are helping me dive into this feel of sudden, random love.

Adele’s “One and Only”

 

Jason Mraz’s “Beautiful Mess”

 

Lord Huron’s “The Man Who Lives Forever”

 

Death Cab for Cutie’s “I Will Follow You Into the Dark”

 

Bright Eye’s “First Day of My Life”

 

Lupe Fiasco’s “Sunshine”

 

Rodrigo Amarante’s “Tuyo”

 

Honestly, there’s more, but I think I should do a spotify playlist. That’s what I’ll post tomorrow, probably.

Peace!…

Learn Piano!

Hey guys, here’s a really cool video I found!

Isn’t that awesome! I got better just by watching the video. #TriangleDefenceForTheWin

Okay.

Well, sorry for not posting a lot lately. That will change. Probably.

Peace!…

Cantaré Pa’ Todo el Año

First thing’s first: if my post yesterday left you with a sense of desolation/sadness/disdain, here’s Nick’s blog post/reflection on 2015. Again, he has a way with words/succinctness that I have yet to come close to mastering. He’s also uplifting and joyful/hopeful in a way that I just can’t be, right now. But his post made me feel a lot better, so, you know, there’s that.

Anyways, it’s officially 2016! First post of the new year! And what will I dedicate it to? That is a great question.

I have only one answer.

Sad, Mexican drinking songs about lost love and stuff.

Do I feel this way? No!… Maybe…

But I do love this song. And I can relate. Anyways, a version of this was actually featured in the the second season of Mozart in the Jungle, in a really beautiful montage. So for me it’s both happy and sad.

Regardless, the song’s title translates to, “For the whole year” (as in the speaker of the song is saying that you might as well give him all the drinks he would otherwise have for the entire rest of the year). Since it’s the beginning of the year, I would like to think about the rest of the year. Maybe not how much I’m going to drink for the rest of year (probably not much, as my most consistent drink is communion wine, technically the blood of Christ).

Anyways, I was thinking about doing a cover of this song, but I seriously don’t have it in a place where I could do it justice, both of my own performance, and what I have currently available to record such a cover. But maybe soon? While there’s still plenty left in this new year (because I like how the name also refers to it’s place in a time cycle, as well as deeper things).

Cool.

Peace!…

A Handful of Things

So, I want to start with this tearjerker:

Well, it was a tearjerker for me, at least.

Oh, and this, too!

Did you know that the producer of the Charlie Brown Christmas Special was a Mexican Immigrant to the United States? Me neither! That’s so cool!

Last thing I’m sharing, I promise!

This is a pretty cool cover:

So, yes, I am in finals week. Pray for me, although it really won’t be that bad. Still, I appreciate the prayers.

Peace!…
