Just got back from a run to Costco for bread, milk, coffee etc. and (incidently) also found a really cute pair of Ralph Lauren soft pinwhale gray cords. While there, at the isle end near the new stuff they're putting out for holidays (yeah, they are already stocking toys) was a karaoke machine. I've never done karaoke, but it was turned on and it was playing Love Shack. Always did love those B-52's! I said "what would you do if I sang this?" to my girls, and they just looked at me, looked at each other, back at me again and smiled. So I gave it a shot. Whew! Man, that was kind of fun. They thought that was hilarious! I'm so glad they are not at an age yet where they are embarrassed by their Mom.
I do love music. All kinds. So, I was intrigued when reading the Red Shoes blog a couple of days ago to see her streaming audio player. Apparently projectplaylist is still in beta testing so there may be glitches, but I gave it a try. It's a fairly easy way to waste time thinking about and uploading songs to enhance the blog.
These selections don't represent my full range musical taste, but are really more to try it out. Also, I don't really think all of my preferences would make good background music for the blog. It should be great fun to update frequently with different selections for autumn, and again as we move into December and all that good seasonal music. Then there's St. Patrick's Day. You get the picture.
Please let me know what you think of it here. Really. Is this just distracting? Is is fun to listen while you read? One drawback I did notice is if I switch over to a photo album or any other link and then come back to the home page it starts all over with the same song. Irritating.
Looking for your thoughts here.
Oh, and the music is easily stopped if you click pause on the player.
