So, as of last week, my nephew is officially walking.

Just in time for me to watch he and my niece for the weekend! (Modified rapture.)

So, I...

…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.

I resemble that remark... )

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 all the steampunk stuff they show is real... )

It really seems to my that my sister's dog, Jake, has decided to humour my niece. Here he provides her with the other half of a duet.

dangerous level of cuteness and vocalizations )
themusecalliope: Vulpes Vulpes (Default) brother just sent me this video. I think he might be trying to kill me. ;) It's not as bad as the reading poetry one, but still...

I think the subject line pretty much covers it )
themusecalliope: Pirate treasure (Treasure)
Right. I think it's about time for a link dump, don't you?

links and a baby )

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.

here endeth the meme )

Almost done! Here's my choice for Y - Weird Al Yankovic - White and Nerdy. The vid is the first take of the White and Nerdy music video. I couldn't resist.

Dance Donny Dance! )

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

X marks the spot )

Well, here's my choice for W: White Stripes - Seven Nation Army. What can I say? I just like the song.

Have I ever mentioned that I used to take drum lessons? )

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.

oh my blue, blue caravan... )

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.

I don't know what to do without you... )

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.

warning: Haiku and cat video )

Okay. Here at last is the Haiku Xmas gift for Labelleizzy, complete with a video of one of my favorite dances. I hope you like it!

we can dance if we want to )

I promised myself that I'd finish the alphabet in music before the end of the year, so here, at last it "T." Yes. I know. I'm totally cheating by counting the "T" in "The."

I don't care. This is my new music obsession (as of today) and this way I get to share it with you. Win-win, yes?

This is Water to Wine by The Rope, a recent band with a sound that harkens back to when I was in High School. I love it.

This is not the lead singer from the Psychedelic Furs )

When I was last up visiting my family, our niece had her first encounter with avocado. I love how easily amused she is...and how much she seems to be acting for the camera. (The person saying nomnomnom in the background is my hubby. I'm the one who mentions the paparazzi.)

OK. No drinking while watching this video, for the sake of your keyboard.

Apparently, my niece likes to bounce )

I know, I know. It's been forever since I started this. ...But I got stuck on "S'" and only now have I figured out that my beloved "Symphony of Science" totally starts with S. Now, a word of caution for this video. I know that many people have an issue with the use of Autotune (and in general I agree) and this video uses same. So, if you are one of those you may wish to skip this one. If not, I hope that you enjoy Symphony of Science - A Glorious Dawn:

in which we float, like a mote of dust in the morning sky )

This is another video of my little sister's wee one. This one features her version of "conversation" seemingly recounting her first day of "Day Care" with her grandparents.

Another cuteness alert )

The other day, my sister put proper shoes on my (4 month old) niece for the very first time. She looks rather perplexed about this.

Video: Ainsley vs. Shoes )
