Okay it’s been a while since I’ve set it to shuffle and played Cosmic Musicology with Steve and I’m mostly happy, so here we go. What makes me laugh?

The extended version to accompany my earlier post, Candle of Hope.
White on white translucent black capes Back on the rack Bela lugosi’s dead The bats have left the bell tower The victims have been bled Red velvet lines the black box Bela lugosi’s dead Undead undead undead The virginal brides file past his tomb Strewn with time’s dead flowers Bereft in deathly bloom Alone inContinue reading “Undead”
Today’s Halloween track, I hope you enjoy!
The week almost got away, but I wrangled enough time to press play on my iPhone to share the music results and analyze its equivalence with Steve’s Music Mix: Shoulda, Woulda Coulda challenge. What I should do… So What! Pink Perhaps it is time to start a fight since I already challenge everything with theContinue reading “Lunchtime Beatboxing”

As I mentioned in a prior challenge, the pickings are slim becauseContinue reading “Steve’s Music Mix: Jewish-Reggae-Metal-Rapping-Bonanza”
Not exactly how I like to spend my weekends… working, but that’s life and what’s expected with my role from time to time. It’s criminal though, I’ve been up and at it since 5:30 AM. There’s a lull in the flow, so I thought it’d be a good time for a quick musical post. I’mContinue reading “Right here, right now…”
I discovered Steve’s weekly music challenge via suzie81 post this morning and I wanted to play. This was a fun way to shake off the stress of the workday.
