The poor lady who’s here in the computer lab with me has had to endure my incessant humming (OK, I’ll admit it … it’s probably closer to singing) along with Colbie Caillat, Amos Lee and Sara Bareilles.

Oh well.

I was here first.

Classical music

Why is it that I feel so much smarter and culturally aware when I listen to classical music?

Look at how smart this guy looks. I'd bet he has a lot of classical music on his iPod. Pic by

Pandora regurgitation

Everyone knows that Jack Johnson pops up on any possible Pandora station that you make … bluegrass, rock, Top 40, country, heavy metal … whatever.

This dude is totally playing "Hallelujah." Pic by Timitrius.

I think that less people have realized that “Hallelujah” is the same way. That gorgeous song has been covered so many times by so many people, it might be even more prolific than good old Jack.

Bagel woes

Why do bagel shops, the supposed bagel experts, put different flavored bagel species together in one, massive “party bag,” when they must know darn well that everything that comes out of the bag will taste of cheddar and onion?

What flavor bagels are these, you ask? Cheddar and onion, cheddar and onion, cheddar and onion. Pic by Ezra.Wolfe on Flickr.

I know a famous pianist

Went to the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra last night primarily to see acclaimed concert pianist Hsing-ay Hsu (I know her!) perform a solo during.

The lovely Hsing-ay Hsu.

Mike and I sat riveted during her Bach piece, watching in awe as her fingers alternately sashayed and stomped across the keys of the massive Steinway.

The second half (is that what the part after half-time is called?) was a piece by Mahler*, which wasn’t quite as interesting–although we were able to pick up on at least three glorified nursery rhymes during this part–but it did allow me to concentrate on conductor Michael Butterman’s shiny locks as he whipped his head around animatedly in time with his maestro stick.

I left the concert with a new-found appreciation for classical music and a burning desire to know what kind of conditioner Butterman uses.

*Note, I’m proud of myself for knowing these composer guys’ names, but truth be told, I’m just cutting and pasting them from the press release.
