Remember how last week I was glad we’ve been in the reverse snow globe – in that all the snow has been dumped elsewhere except our general vicinity? Mother Nature must have heard, because she decided Princess Nagger needed to have the Snow Day she’d been jonesin’ for. We got about 8-inches delivered on Wednesday late – which meant a Snow Day for Princess Nagger on Thursday, and a delayed start on Friday. We had two more squalls go through Friday night into Saturday, which added another 2-inches to the fun.
Since we had to spend so much time shoveling, that meant a slight delay on our Summer House renovation-into-killer-office-and-music-creation space. But we made some great headway over the weekend – which meant having the phone and internet disconnected while working on the walls. But late last night we got to a point where we could finally plug back in – I didn’t miss not having the phone available, but I sure missed the internet connection for two days.
Since Princess Nagger still has the cold she’s been nursing for the last week or so, that meant limited time playing outside in the snow – but she made good use of that time, setting up a dinosaur Ice Age type scenario she wants me to film and put on YouTube. So that will be happening at some point – she’s all excited about her Dinosaur Project. Stay Tuned.
Speaking of YouTube, it’s time once again for Monday’s Music Moves Me – and this week it’s all about our favorite artists or songs. Or songs from our favorite artists – you get the idea. I have a very eclectic music taste – I pretty much like anything and everything. Except rap – sorry, I’m just not into it. It’s me, not you. Since I do enjoy such a wide variety, I could have embedded tons of videos but had trouble narrowing it down to just a few. At least it’ll give you an idea of the swing of the pendulum.
First we’ll start off with a song from one of my favorites artists, Bon Jovi – as performed by Blake Lewis on American Idol. I think he did this song proud. And probably Bon Jovi, too.
Next up is one of my favorite songs from Queen – it always reminds me of going to hockey games. Gee, I wonder why?
Next up is yet another of my favorite artists, Alanis Morissette. So many of her songs came out that really mirrored what was going on in my life at the time – some of them weren’t appropriate to post here, but this one definitely works:
Of course I can’t leave out one of my favorite Country stars – Carrie Underwood. I watched (and voted for) her on American Idol, and I have not been disappointed with any of the songs she’s put out so far. This was one off her very first album that totally rocks:
And finally, I thought I’d end the mix with the man himself, Jon Bon Jovi and another of my favorites of his, Bed of Roses:
There – did that mix things up enough for you? Bet you thought I’d be posting all country songs based on what I’ve been posting, didn’t you? Enjoy your Monday!
