Goodbye Starman

As a tribute to David Bowie, I offer Chris Hadfield singing Space Oddity…in Space.

I saw David Bowie live once. He was amazing. Here’s to the Thin White Duke.

Song Obsession: (I’m the One That’s) Cool by The Guild

…And the song obsession I’ve has for the last 3 days (I watched the video, then immediately bought the song and I’ve been listening ever since) is: (I’m the One That’s) Cool by The Guild/Felicia Day. Fair warning for the sensitive (like me): this video shows depictions of bullying (seemingly from the memories of the characters). If this is something you might have trouble with, just listen rather than watch. The song is great. It’s a “Ha! Geeks are cool now!” anthem.

Luckily, I don’t think that anyone saw me rocking out in my cube.

Song Obsession: Abney Park – Steampunk Revolution

You may yet remember that I get obsessed with songs. Well…here is Sunday’s song obsession: Abney Park – Steampunk Revolution. I think I’ve listened to it 100 times already, and I can’t wait for the album to come out.

Why did I get obsessed by this one? Well, 1)I love Abney Park 2)I groove on the Steampunk aesthetic 3)The tune is catchy and I can dance to it (in my room…and possibly in my cube).

And here, at last, is Z (just under the wire.) Zbigniew Preisner – Van Den Budenmayer – Concerto In E Minor (SBI 152) Version 1798 (from the soundtrack of La Double Vie de Veronique.) Simply put, this piece is glorious.

Happy New Year/Hogmanay all!

High School flashback alert! (Well, for when I was in High School anyway.) My choice for X: XTC – King For a Day.

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