My latest electronic composition. . .

This ambient piece, called "Old Time's Sake," is soporific and owes much to Ingrid Bergman. Per usual, I made it with a combination of Beatlab and Garageband, and have uploaded it onto Bandcamp.

Song of the Day. . .

I just re-watched the video for "Elastic Heart" by Sia I have new respect for Shia LaBeouf and his total commitment to authenticity in all he does. He is so wonderfully weird.
Of course young dancer Maddie Ziegler is a bad-ass, but Shia deserves a Best Actor Academy Award for his emotion-charged, brute-force-infused interpretive dance.
By the way, next time I'm up in the club, I might channel some of these moves. We're talking the "Reptilian Floor Crawl," the "Charging Gorilla Growl Fake-Out," the "Heart Palpitations," the "Help, I Can No Longer Vocalize," the "Fierce Creature Jumping On Your Back," the "Look, I Don't Bite," "The Bite," the "I'm Tired, Do You Mind Dragging Me For a Minute?" and the "Punch-Induced Funny Face."
Anyone know where I can get a large cage?

Song of the Day. . .

"So Now What" is an absolutely lovely song by indie rockers The Shins. That Natalie Portman character in "Garden State" was right. Their music WILL change your life.

By the way, if you play it on repeat, I won't judge you. I'm a play it on repeat kind of gal, and that's just what I'm doing now.

Song of the Day. . .

I got a wake-up call from the universe to slow my roll. Stop trying to do so much stuff and spinning in circles, and stop chasing every single thought and idea.
And it wasn't a cool wake-up, like when you're a kid and sleeping with a fan and some song from KOST 103.5 comes on, perhaps a tune by one Lionel Ritchie—whose voce is the very sound of love—to gently nudge you out of bed.
So, I'm taking it easy. I started a garden, including two tomatoes in, of all things, pots. They are ensconced in this fenced-in area where the loving but destructive Koda/Cody can't destroy them. And fortified with really good store-bought soil.
Baby steps. And cherry tomatoes.
