Radio Hit Wonder (and I seriously wonder...)

We watch the Today Show at the hospital in the mornings and some mornings they show a live performance from a popular artist. Today's artists was the band Train.
Enjoy. (If you can get past his awful flat tone right from the first measure.)

I'm sorry but I feel like if you have a career as a singer you should sound the same whether you are heard on the radio or during a live performance. Why are most of our popular radio hits coming from people who can't actually sing? It just all seems a little backward to me.

To make up for posting that awful singing I'll make it up to you with some fantastic songs from Jason Mraz's Live On Earth concert. Enjoy. (For real.)

Blog Help

So I've been playing around with my blog lately, changing things here and there. I'm sure you can tell but I can't figure out for the life of me how to get my beloved title picture right! (Yes the bone tissue picture.) The picture doesn't go all the way across and so it just ends and then there's a nice chunk of white space where the picture didn't extend to. Help anyone?

Life of Pi

In theaters November 21st.

I honestly love this book. I know some people find the book questionable but I love to idea of using your imagination to help you overcome a problem, a tragedy, a loss. It's the same in the movie The Fall, where they tell a story and in the story they find their way to overcoming their problems. It's the same in Chocolat, where the little girl has an imaginary pet kangaroo with a bad leg that keeps her company as she moves constantly with her mom. Only when they finally settle and put down roots does her pet kangaroo recover and hop away. 

I'm not sure how the movie will turn out. It looks promising so far. I'm definitely going to see it.

Book List Extended

I know I already have a nice long lists of books to read but I can't help myself when I find an idea for a new reading list. I found this list online today... Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. There's no way that I can't not work on this now. I'm in the process of reading the Count of Monte Cristo right now so there's one for her list. I think next I'll delve into Alice in Wonderland. I got that book for Natalie for her birthday and I've been dying to read it. Don't you love birthday gifts that you can use too. So great.
Happy Reading!

Paddle Boarding

I tried out stand up paddle boarding today and had such a great time. The water felt fantastic, the weather was perfect and it just felt good to be out in the lake floating/paddling around. Those paddle boards are huge so we cruised around the whole time with two people on each. We tried so hard to get all four of us standing on one but it never happened without us all falling into the lake. But we did manage three people however for a small duration of time. I don't know why but I just completely loved doing this! I recommend trying it out. You might want to look for deals though with the paddle boards but it's still just a fun new thing to try out no matter what.

Pushing Myself

Okay, I did it. I signed up and payed the money so I have to go through with this! No backing out now. Time for some sketching and chalking.

Monday's Music

Monday's music, posted on Tuesday.
I've been MIA for the past month, sorry. And I've completely forgotten about my music posts. So we'll try this again.
