... is that I'm curious about just about everything. And I'm not afraid of research (not to mention Google makes it so damn easy). Today's excursion into new ideas came out of watching another recording of Mtv Hit's clubland. I told the DVR to record all of them after I realized I hadn't spotted any in the online guide in two weeks. (This doesn't mean they weren't there, it means I couldn't find them.) Since then I think it caught 6 recordings. Anyway, I've now seen Aviccii's Broken Arrows three or four times and I started wondering if this was real story.

I now know more about the high jump than I did before (and seeing as prior to the video I had zero interest and nothing more than a vague mental image of people flying over a horizontally mounted pole). Now I also know the story as told in the video is fictionalized and not an exact representation. The video tells a great story but the reality is also interesting, particularly Fosbury's experiences in Mexico before and after the Olympics. (See this article in The Guardian.)

Now off to investigate reviews of HipHopAbs...

When I flipped on the tv this morning the station was set to MSNBC (probably because I was once again up too late watching Lockup: Raw). I caught the end of an interview with Devon Glover, and then heard him rap Shakespeare's Sonnet 18. I'm not a huge fan of rap, in part because I usually have trouble making out the lyrics. I remember from high school that English in Shakespeare's time was different than ours and it was often difficult to understand, but that wasn't the case here. I could clearly hear the words and it was interesting listening.

I doubt I'll buy his CD, but if you're interested in learning more, check out http://www.thesonnetmannyc.com/

p.s. No disrespect to Ryan Lewis and Ray Dalton. I love both of you guys too.

Well, it's been a busy few weeks. After nearly ten years of being a Dish subscriber, I had enough and switched to WOW. The switch has been far from seamless. The installer discovered he couldn't reach the easement thanks to our overgrown Elderberry bushes and the self-seeded mulberry tree that was growing into cable lines. The installer needed us to clear a path, so installation was delayed for a week.

We cleared a path for the installation guy, which is when I tore up the skin on my ribs. Fortunately I was mostly better the following Friday, which is when I got to haul the trash and yard waste to the curb. I got to do it because [livejournal.com profile] jebra was away at Anthrocon. I was both annoyed and amused with his absence. Most weeks we put out one or both recycling bins and *maybe* one bag of trash. Instead, this is what I got to haul to the street:

After [livejournal.com profile] jebra returned, so did the cable installer. Which is when we discovered our semi-new Vizio tv does not like WOW, or perhaps that should be WOW without a DVR. I ordered basic service, which does not require a DVR, but I already regret that choice. Pushing the channel up (or down) button 200 times to get from the first channel to the one I want to watch is a drag. I've called the installer to order a DVR, but so far it's the up button for me. And don't even get me started on how much I miss the pause button. I had not idea how addicted I am to that thing until I no longer had one.

Not that I've had much time to miss it. I'm at work during the day, and I've stayed late to work on a few personal projects, such as sewing bags for my electronic devices. Add in the usual routine of laundry on Monday, dance class on Tuesday, and grocery shopping on Wednesday, and well, the weeks practically over. We weren't home last weekend either, as we were in Elkhart for the Jazz Festival. For me, the best part was not the music but the opportunity to see my friends on the Production Staff. I spent pretty much the entire long weekend (we took Friday afternoon off from work) hanging out in the Production Office. I had my Kindle, my netbook, and my knitting.

So, other than yesterday's tale of the visit to the nutritionist, that's what's been going on with me.

On January 1st I saw that [personal profile] dglenn used one of my quotes. This morning I see one of my friends is on cheezburger.

Which reminds me, a video I'm in was posted to youtube -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuOfzprvvwY -- I'm the fat chick briefly interviewed at the 38 second mark.

Tomorrow we're going to The Ark for this group's performance.

Heard this on the radio for the first time this morning and had to look up the lyrics.

Last night I watched Harbors of Our Own by elandrialore, a wonderful fan vid combining Hawaii Five-0 and Vienna Teng (slash, of course, what else would you expect from me?) six or seven times. Yes, I like it that much.

I played it again this morning and decided I should find out what James Caan looks like. (Scott Caan is James Caan's son.) imdb came through, of course, and I discovered I've actually seen a movie he's been in, but I have no recollection of any of the characters. I know the soundtrack for it very well, however. Thief was my introduction to Tangerine Dream and I remember watching the movie twice just for the music.

Naturally, this lead to http://www.tangerinedream-music.info/index.php and my current hogging of the bandwidth. The site plays a fantastic selection of their music and I've already been to eBay to purchase one of their newer collections.

and in it, there's a strong link between Oz (the old HBO series) and St. Patrick's Day. This is why Ryan O'Reily always appears on my St. Patrick's Day cards and why I go through a longing for Oz slash at this time of year.

But that wasn't what I came here to say. What I meant to say was that I'm once again listening to the Convicts of Oz CD and I swear I love it more every time I play the darn thing. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to this post on Trillingstar's LJ. You can find a link to the album (zip files) underneath the liner notes.

I'm totally grooving on PBS' Inspector Lewis. Elfin convinced me of the worthiness of slash between Lewis and Morse many years ago, and now that Morse is gone, I think Lewis and Hathaway make a fine pairing. Not to mention Hathaway is interesting to look at. I wouldn't have pegged him for my type (although now that I've said pegged, very naughty thoughts are going through my mind)...

Meanwhile, in my following of copyright issues, I somehow stumbled across an article about Lily Allen, a UK musician who complained about piracy and called for more anti-piracy legislation on her blog -- only to have it revealed that she herself created illicit mixtapes full of copyrighted music and made them available to the public. I was vastly amused. And more convinced than ever that most people don't see this type of free use as wrong and won't until they begin to feel that every single thing they do or have been involved in in the past ought to produce more income for themselves. (I put Jon Gosselin into this category too (and how sad is it that I even know how to spell his name.) (Come to think of it, I think it's a bizzare form of entitlement and makes me think of Christopher Meloni and his "player haters" remark. Being one of the few people still watching SVU, I can honestly say he's making *way* too much money as a caricature.)

Back to Lily Allen. Yesterday I read this article http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20090923/1409046297.shtml which lead to Dan Bull's open letter to Lily (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL9-esIM2CY), which is catchy enough that I found myself humming all afternoon and lead me downloading his latest album from his website (www.danbull.com). I'm listening to Safe again today and enjoying it enough that I plan to keep an eye out for this guy. Now if only he'd appear on an episode of Inspector Lewis, perhaps as a musician friend of Hathaway.

Wow.

To a Mother Concerned About File Sharing by David J. Hahn

Awesome. And not a stance that would have occurred to me.

back at the park on my phone. Truth in Jazz just finished their set -- with a Charles Mingus tune that reminded me of something I heard on some cartoon show when I was a kid. I kept thinking Jognny Quest but by the end I realized I was huming/singing bits of the theme to Spiderman.
