So…question: What would you choose for X? (Where the band needs to start with X.)

Day 22: Vienna Teng – Blue Caravan

Okay, with two weeks to go in the year, here is my choice for the letter V. Vienna Teng’s Blue Caravan is a melancholy exploration of a self-created reality. It’s also beautiful. Give it a listen and see what you think.

Haiku: Bears Have the Right Idea for Emma

And this should be the last of the Holiday Haikus. Emma asked for “bear(s)” so I hope that this works for her. Happy holidays to all and sundry!



Bears Have The Right Idea
Some large predators
hibernate during winter
to avoid the mall

Haiku: Snow for JM

Here’s the next holiday haiku. This one is for my friend JM who asked for “Snow.” I hope that this works for her. (I took the photo below when I was on my way through Yosemite to get out the other side.)



Snow
Delicate crystals
used for skiing and snowmen
Oh. And snowballs. Duck!

Day 21: Urbanized feat. Silvano – Helpless (from the film Jeffrey)

Remember how I said I wanted to finish this music thing by the end of the year? Well, here is my Letter U. Urbanized feat. Silvano – Helpless (from the film Jeffrey) was nigh impossible to find the correct version of. Everyone seems to think various remixes are the correct version. Sorry, none of those remixes do it for me. The version I want is the one from my Jeffrey soundtrack. Here it is. If you liked the film Jeffrey, you might enjoy the slideshow on the video. Otherwise, just enjoy the music.

Haiku: Frisbee for nagasasu

The request for this Haiku was “Chocolate! Or cats.” So…I combined them. Hope that it works. Of course, it also comes with a bonus video for a bit more added value/explanation.

Frisbee
