Your morning happiness: Ascension to Cosmo Canyon.

Like most people, whenever I’m going through a bit of a rough patch I find peace in music.  Here’s what I had on this morning.  :)  It’s a remix of the song “Ascension To Cosmo Canyon” from Final Fantasy VII.  Ironically, this was one of my least favorite songs in the actual game, but this [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: Dire, dire docks.

For this morning’s morning happiness I got you one of my favorite songs from a video game ever.  I might be in the mood to do these the rest of the week.  Anyway, here’s a remix of Dire, Dire Docks from Super Mario 64.  [Read more...]

MUSIC: Mario is a jerk and Mega Man rock opera.

Ok, my brother sent me this video.  Warning now: it would be very hard for this to be less safe for work.  It’s pretty crass, but it made me smile.  I always knew Mario was an asshole. And while we’re on the subject of video game music, here’s an excerpt from the Protomen’s dystopian rock [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: another cuteness dump and farewell to Lou Reed.

Sorry for the late start.  I slept in.  I regret nothing.  Here’s a great way to start the day. Also, Lou Reed has died.  He was a spectacular musician and, from all accounts, a generous and spectacular person.  Here are my favorite song by him: “Perfect Day”. [Read more...]

Garfunkel and Oates: the Loophole.

When I came on board at Patheos I agreed to one small bit of control over my writing: no swear words in the title.  This is because the title of my post could show up in the reader of someone who subscribes to all of Patheos and some of them may not care for the [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: Pentatonix.

HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS ACAPELLA GROUP BEFORE YESTERDAY???? Seriously friends and fans, you have failed me – and I won’t soon forget it.  Anyway, here they are doing a compilation called The Wizard of Ahhhhhs: Here they are covering the Imagine Dragons song Radioactive: If you watch their other videos you get [Read More...]

More music: Just No Time At All.

Ok, getting into the news, but I woke up in a really good mood and this song popped into my head.  It’s Just No Time At All from the musical Pippin. I’ve never been a fan of the style of singing that focuses purely on making the best possible sound.  I think music becomes so [Read More...]

Christopher Lee sings.

I have bad news: your life was not complete before this moment. I also have good news: I have the medicine, and it’s this video clip. That song is now in your head for the rest of the day.  You’re welcome. The clip is from an Australian film called The Return of Captain Invincible and [Read More...]

Björn Ulvaeus credits godlessness for why Swedish musicians are more creative.

Nobody can really question Björn Ulvaeus’ skill as a songwriter.  In that capacity he has always pushed the envelope of what is meta for songwriters at the time (no more so, I think, than with the musical Chess, which he co-composed with fellow ABBA veteran Benny Anderson).  In speaking about why Swedish composers tend to [Read More...]

Music: surprise at Kristin Chenowith concert.

*glump, good morning world*  I have a bunch of a few non-atheist posts to tide you over while I read the news. The first is about a happy coincidence at a Kristin Chenoweth concert.  For those who don’t know, Chenowith is a famous musical theater soprano (one of the most famous).  Most people know her [Read More...]
