This music video is so super fun. Japanese band Sour (btw – I love their music) shot Hibi no Neir’ (Tone of Everyday) using a cast from their actual fan base which includes different people from all over the world. Each person and scene was filmed purely from webcam. “Hibi no Neir” is from Sour’s first mini album ‘Water Flavor EP.’ Enjoy!

Another season of American Idol is over…and it was a good one! I liked both Adam and Kris and would have been satisfied with either outcome, but the title went to Kris Allen. So in honor of Kris’s win I thought I would post this video of him singing “God of the City” by Bluetree.
My son plays the piano, acoustic guitar and electric guitar. Here he is performing at House of Blues in Dallas, TX. The music school he goes to helps the kids organize bands and then gets them booked at different venues where they get to play one song. It was fun. (He’s in the white tshirt)
Here’s some of my favorite digital Advent stuff:
Christianity Today has a Digital Advent Calendar that includes compelling images and liturgy.
Sojourn Music has some Advent Songs that you can listen to for free.
The Church of England released a Video Advent Calendar.
Let me know what cool digital Advent stuff you have found.
Made a CD for a friend this week. I started off with a little Jason Mraz and went from there. It actually ended up being two CDs – a total of 30 songs. I made it for my friend, Colleen, who lives in San Antonio. I was there for a visit back in April and we spent some time talking about music – so I decided I would share some of my favorites with her. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Here’s the playlist:
Groovin’ On A Sunday Afternoon – The Young Rascals (it was a perfect title for the collection)
Shy That Way– Tristan Prettyman and Jason Mraz (love them together)
If I Ain’t Got You – Alicia Keys (the voice! the piano! It’s perfect!)
(You Want To) Make A Memory– Bon Jovi (great sing a long song)
Love Song – 311 (from the movie 50 First Dates – very pretty)
The Story– Brandi Carlile (love the raspiness of her voice – makes me think of Grey’s Anatomy)
Ain’t Nobody– Chaka Khan (makes me want to dance)
Love Song– Sara Bareillies (another great sing a long)
Live High– Jason Mraz (very mellow and easy going – his voice shines through on this nicely)
Keep Breathing– Ingrid Michaelson (another song from Grey’s – I can still see Christina in that wedding dress)
With You – Chris Brown (who would’ve ever thought I would like a song so much where the guy calls the girl Boo)Dream Some – Shelby Lynne (something I found accidentally and fell in love with)
Do You Know (The Ping Pong Song)– Enrique Iglesias (very poppie and great to sing a long with)
You and I– Jason Mraz (this and Beautiful Mess may be my favorite Mraz songs at the moment)
Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me – Gladys Knight (a timeless song – makes you think of someone special)
Sunday Morning – Maroon 5 (just a feel good song all the way around)
How To Save A Life – The Fray (hauntingly beautiful)
Look At Me – Keri Noble (another one I found accidentally and fell in love with)
Crazy – Gnarls Barkley (love the funky feel – also love the music video of this song)
Tell It To My Heart– Taylor Dayne (anyone feel like dancing?)
When The Stars Go Blue – Ryan Adam (I still think of Blake Lewis from American Idol when I hear this song)
The Way I Am– Ingrid Michaelson (such a positive, upbeat, fun song)
You’re Beautiful – James Blunt (great song – in fact his whole Back To Bedlam album is great)
No One – Alicia Keys (still love this song even though they played it to death on the radio)
1000 Things– Jason Mraz (another great one from Jason)
Bleeding Love – Leona Lewis (was so glad when her music started to break here in the US – love her voice)
Who Knew – Pink (don’t listen to much by Pink but love to sing along with this song)
Unfair – Josh Kelley (was in the movie 27 Dresses – love the old Motown sound)
Love Love Love– Tristan Prettyman (her voice goes so well with the guitar)
Smooth – Santana (sexy)
