Put some happy in your life.

Via Colter, here's what I'm humming tonight, courtesy of Nashville duo Swan Dive:

I think I'm going to need this album...

Damien Rice, redux

Back in 2003 I wrote about the experience of seeing a then unknown-to-me Damien Rice at WorkPlay, my favorite little music venue down in Birmingham, AL:

uptempo music + headphones = progress (we hope)

Dearest nerdiverse, through problems not of my own making* I am wearing headphones for about eight hours straight every day, and will likely be doing so every workday for the rest of this month.  As a result, I have a serious, dire, and immediate need to rock out.

See for everything I've listened to since 2004, or better yet see this subpage for what I've listened to in the past year.

Her Morning Elegance (reblog)

I admit, this is a shameless reblog from SassyBlonde's YouTube Roundup, but I'm with her on this one: Oren Lavie's video for "Her Morning Elegance" just makes me happy and I can't even explain why.

TV on the radio on the domesticat on the blog

Huh, I think TV On The Radio's "Dear Science" is finally clicking for me.

hey jackboot, fuck your war!
Cause I'm fat and in love and no bombs are fallin’ on me for sure
But I'm scared to death that I’m livin' a life not worth dying for

Anyone else listened to this album? It's quite the mad rush.

In fact, come to think of it, I've got the technology. If you're logged in, hop over to to ... well ... do just that.

Hear the 2008 Earworm List!

While joking around with friends on New Year's Eve, a couple of people noted they had NO familiarity whatsoever with most of the artists whose music I loved in 2008.  It occurs to me that, as a webgeek, I have the technology to fix this problem.
