Not much of an update, but it's been almost a week.
This week's music round-up ...
The woman on Britain's Got Talent who's been making the YouTube and talk TV rounds blew me away, too.
I did a great job with the CD purchase a couple weeks ago. The Mavericks and Alejandro Escavedo CDs are amazing - not a bit of filler in either one. I already knew I that I love the k.d. lang, Pretty in Pink, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Traveling Wilburys CDs. Junior Brown is good, but I haven't listened to the English Beat or Buffy CDs, yet.
Hugh Laurie's version of Georgia on My Mind at the end of House this week was ... I don't even have the words. Heartbreaking?

Off to Chicago for a few days with my best friend and our moms. There is much museum visiting, eating and shopping to be done.

This must be a record for blog posts in two days.

I've always known that I want children, and I listen to a lot of music. So, over the years, as I've heard songs that are about being a parent, written for children, or about the lessons we learn in life, I've stored them away in the back of my mind. Then a couple years ago, I started building a "Little One" play list.

Now, as the birth of my own child approaches - wow that was strange to type out - I'm obviously even more attached to these songs that I've collected over the years.

Without further ado, my Little One play list, so far:

"A Magic Moment" clip from Mad About You
Wonderland ... The American - Angie Aparo
Little Miss Magic - Jimmy Buffett
When You Come Back Down - Nickel Creek
Child, You're the Revolution - Angie Aparo
Never Gonna Fly - Radney Foster
The Cape - Guy Clark
Delaney Talks to Statues - Jimmy Buffett
Sweet Baby James - James Taylor
Lullabye - Ben Folds Five
Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) - Radney Foster
(new addition) It Won't Be Like This for Long - Darius Rucker
(new addition) Bella's Lullaby - Twilight Soundtrack

(and my favorite) The Things We've Handed Down - Marc Cohn

Reckless Kelly

I've just discovered that provides embedding code with the videos on their site. So, here is the latest Reckless Kelly single and video - Ragged as the Road. While I really like the song, I have other favorite videos of theirs. The reason I've posted this video in particular, though, is because David Abeyta is playing the Gibson that he played in the Atlanta show - the one that I got to strum on a little at the end of the show.

Oh, and be very scared that I've discovered this ability. Hopefully, I'll find other sites that provide the code, so that you don't only have to suffer through country music.

Left to My Own Devices

I'm eating a delicious filet mignon from Fresh Market, cooked for 30 minutes or so in an iron skillet. Wonderful. The bad part? It's 9:20pm.


I had a fun trip to the CD Warehouse last weekend, while Dave smoked a cigar next door. It's pretty dangerous to leave me in CD Warehouse for more than a hour since that gives me time to go through every single bin. But, then again, it's CD Warehouse, so at least everything's pretty cheap.

So, here's the damage:
Junior Brown - Guit With It
Pretty in Pink Soundtrack
The English Beat - I Just Can't Stop It
The Mavericks - Live in Austin Texas
Traveling Wilburys - Vol. 1
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Alejandro Escovedo - A Man Under the Influence
k.d. lang - Shadowland
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Radio Sunnydale
