It's been two and a half years since I made music with another person, and it's really starting to wear on me.

I don't sing in public much anymore. It's just not the same since the Markland fallout happened. But my friend Matt joined the Peace Corps, and I don't have money to send him a care package. And he loves it when I sing this little snippet of a song, so I recorded it for him. I've gotten to the point where I'm really shy about my voice, and I wouldn't have put it up here, but some people said some nice things to me when I posted it to his facebook, so here. This is what I sound like.

The song, on the off chance that someone doesn't know, is the poem "The Stolen Child" by W.B. Yeats. The melody is originally by The Waterboys.

So what would YOU put on a T shirt?


I've been borrowing Jay's car for the past couple of days while he carpools with a coworker who lives in our complex. I had to get my brakes done: front & rear brakes & rotors, and rear calipers. And yet, it's the cheapest brake job I've ever had done. I question the honesty of north Jersey mechanics.

So, I've been reading www.crazyauntpurl.com lately, and beyond making me want to learn to knit, it's made me want to figure out how I became such an angry person. I carry it around with me and it gets in the way sometimes. And of course it's not just one event, it's lots of them, and bad timing, and people hurting my feelings and breaking my trust. But one thing among them is standing out at the moment, so I thought I might get it out.

BUT! I'm taking Heather to the Faire tomorrow! So you know that means pictures. AND I caught up on paying down my student loan this morning.

This song always makes me nostalgic for the nomad days:

We spotted the ocean at the head of the trail
Where are we going, so far away
And somebody told me that this is the place
Where everything's better, everything's safe
Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone
And half and hour later we packed up our things
We said we'd send letters and all those little things
And they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same
It seemed they'd already forgotten we'd came

Now we're back at the homestead
Where the air makes you choke
And people don't know you
And trust is a joke
We don't even have pictures
Just memories to hold
That grow sweeter each season
As we slowly grow old

"Walk On the Ocean"--Toad the Wet Sprocket

Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's The Pirate Queen, the spectacular new musical from the authors of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon, comes to Broadway following a world premiere engagement in Chicago. Tony Award-winner Frank Galati directs.

The Pirate Queen is an epic musical adventure celebrating the legendary Irish Chieftain Grace O'Malley. Based on her real-life story, the musical tells of a compelling, inspirational woman; a heroine who led an extraordinary life as a pirate, chieftain, lover and mother in 16th Century Ireland. Commissioned and produced by Moya Doherty and John McColgan, the producers of Riverdance, this new musical combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is both an historic romance and a timeless epic.

I can't say enough how much I love this song. Andy McKee is amazing.

If you watch, you realize that he's using the spoon as both a slide and a quickly movable capo. It's really awesome.

My high school used to do this thunderstorm exercise at pep rallies. It was the only time I think 600 teenagers have ever agreed to do the same thing at the same time. The accent that you're hearing is Slovenian.

DDR + classical piano + FAO Schwartz = AWESOME

I think these girls are store employees, which means they'd have the access to practice. Still...
