For Your Listening Pleasure III: Christmas Waltz

Christie and I took a trip to La Crosse's Rotary Lights at Riverside Park last night and it was nauseatingly lovely. Something about that commercialized, sparkly, but nostalgic Xmas Light Thing brings a song to my heart. I just eat that stuff up.

Take a walk with me and Christie's new camera that doesn't necessarily take the best videos (hey, it was its first try at a light show...that's a big pond for such a young, tiny fish) and listen to The Christmas Waltz, a song I couldn't remember for the life of me during the whole recording and editing process, so I named it things like Frosted Window Panes and Christmassy Song and Fa La La La La. If I was as cool and witty and spunky as I wish I was, that last title would be true, but it's not.

Happy Xmas Eve EVE, faithful follower(s)!!

For Your Listening Pleasure II: River

More of what I've been dreaming up on my keyboard during my study breaks. The beautiful video was shot this afternoon when I drove past a lake called Josephine and decided it would look great with this song. It's a cover of River.

For Your Listening Pleasure I: Snow

I thought I'd take a 45-minute break from my studying for finals to record a little Christmas diddy for my faithful follower(s). I haven't released anything musical for over a year, so I figured you'd like to hear something new of mine. Just a quick a recording of a totally new arrangement, written by yours truly.

Also, we got our very first snow today! Yippie-kai-ay for a light dusting.

It's a wonderful song...I don't know why I can't find any other people covering it. And I thought I'd give a you a little looped animation to look at while you're listening.

So here it is. Snow from the movie White Christmas. Hope you enjoy.
