Ingrid Michaelson on twitter

Every time I want to have a good laugh, I check Ingrid Michaelson’s twitter stream. Her tweets are just hilarious. Let me post some samples for you (read from bottom up)

Cuteness: Giraffe and Squirrel

Thursday brings cuteness 🙂

A friend emailed the following photo to me and I loved it so much, I forwarded it immediately …you know, that’s how it goes.

It’s a pity I can’t give credits to the one who shot the photo for I don’t know who he/she is.

Peanuts Fashion

Designer Isaac Mizrahi: “I love Peanuts because it represents a theme in my childhood to do with not fitting in, with being an outsider. ”  He designed a dress based on an outfit Charlie Brown would have worn, had he been a woman.

I came across musicovery the other day when I was surfing the web for interactive music sites.
Musicovery is a VISUAL streaming radio that lets you pre-select the genre, tempo, mood and decade (age) of the music you want to listen to. There’s a navigation bar on the left where you can set your preferences and a map of the songs in the center where you can scroll around and select the songs manually (see image). Unfortunately, the database seems to consist of more or less mainstream tracks, so it’s not really a tool to discover new music.

You can listen to the radio for free at a low streaming quality; better quality is offered for paid users. You’ve got to decide for yourself if the streaming quality is acceptable or if you’re willing to spend 4US$ a month for an account. I consider musicovery to be a toy which is good for playing with different styles of music but that’s it 😛

It’s a fun thing to try out though, so I thought I should mention it here…

Time Piece

I went to one of the King’s Singers live shows earlier this year. The King’s Singers are a British a-capella vocal ensemble who have a wide range repertoire from classical to popular music. I loved the concert and I highly recommend it. One of their originals is especially fun to listen to. It’s “Time Piece” by Paul Patterson. I could not hold myself back and laughed out loud during the song, not just because of the lyrics but because of their fabulous interpretation. Fortunately, I was not the only one to laugh, so it was just half as embarassing….

Time Piece
In six days God created the world
and saw that it was good
and rested on the seventh day
from all the work that he had made.
Life was good. All was well.
Paradise was looking c00L.
One day Eve said:
“Hey Adam! What’s that you’re wearing on your wrist?”
“It’s a watch”.
It’s the tick and the tock of a man-made clock.
It’s a watch. It’s a clock
tick, tock, shock,
shockproof, waterproof,
digital, luminous.
Paradise is O.K. with a watch to measure the day…..

…to be continued 😛
