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...]

Videos of my FtBCon panels from this weekend.

I was on some panels at FtBConscience this weekend.  The first was Atheist Music hosted by Brianne Bilyeu.  It was good to see the faces of some very dear friends, Ashley Miller and Shelley Segal.  They’re really good people.  I’m also a huge fan of Roy Zimmerman and didn’t know he was going to be [Read More...]

The best video on the entire internet.

My theory III teacher in college was a very clever, unconventional guy.  He knew theory IV, where we would learn about scary, scary 12-tone serialism, was on the horizon.  To make sure we got the ground work for that course solidly, he taught the entire theory III class out of The Beatles song book.  It [Read More...]

Karaoke outing #3

Was perusing comments on some of my youtube vids and came across this karaoke outing that I never posted.  Here ya go!  Now back to gaming weekend.  :D [Read more...]

Good reviews for musical about leaving faith.

The musical TJ and Mr. Oaksite, which deals with a young woman abandoning faith and dealing with mental illness (and which also has a character fashioned after yours truly ), has debuted to wonderful reviews! But lest you think this is heavy philosophy, Wilkinson’s story humanizes the debate. Two sisters — the T.J. of the [Read More...]

Orchestral version of the Moon Theme from Ducktales.

I think much of the music written for older video games is some of the most wonderful and complex music ever composed.  One of my all time favorites is the Moon Theme from the NES version of Ducktales.  It’s one of my go-to ditties when I want to smile.  And today I found an orchestral [Read More...]

Random thoughts about one of the hardest tenor solos of all time.

Jesus Christ Superstar is one of my favorite musicals.  I’m feeling better today, so what better way to treat exhausted vocal chords than singing music out of my voice type, right?  I’ve had JCS on all day. I was reminded that Tim Minchin was recently on tour as Judas in the show so I looked [Read More...]

Well, this made me tear up.

I’m back!  I sat down to read through the internet from my lovely home office (otherwise known as my room) and this is the first thing I came across: Aaaaaaaand Simon Cowell’s a dick. The shy boy is one of the rarer voice types called a heldentenor, which literally translates to “heroic tenor.”  I think [Read More...]
