Having a concert!

| No Comments

I'm now having a concert! A sing along concert to songs from my past (and a few from the present!). Buying one or two favorite songs at iTunes is a wonderful thing!

I spent the about 5 hours today going through my old 33rpm LPs (vinyl record albums), my old cassette tapes, and my very old 45rpm singles (vinyl). From those, I culled a lot I have no attachment to, and bought songs I love or like a lot - or just want in my music library for sing-alongs! I also bought from Amazon full CDs from a few artists.

Cover for See the Light.
Whoop! Last night, I was hunting around Amazon looking for CDs and discovered that Bo Bice has a new single out, but Amazon didn't have the full album in a CD (but does have it as a downloadable MP3 album). So I went to Bo's website and discovered that the See the Light is a Wal-Mart exclusive - which means it's sold only at Wal-Mart.

I listened to a few sample tracks, liked what I heard, and bought See the Light through Wal-Mart's website.

This is the sound Bo's first album after American Idol should have had. The Real Thing just wasn't his style. See the Light fits him so much better!

Got it! Crazy Aunt Purl's book!

Music crazy at Amazon


In addition to buying knitting books 2 weeks ago, I went crazy buying music CDs... Four Etta James (my new favorite female singer!), a couple Trace Adkins (oh my! a lovely deep voice!), two Chess Blues Classics, and one each of Travis Tritt, Reba McEntire, Donnell Jones, and Prince. There's a copy fest going on now! (I keep copies in my car instead of the originals because the CDs get damaged by the sun and highway bumps).

After breakfast on Sunday, Bill and I went to the Maker Faire at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. It was difficult to explain to him just what the Maker Faire was, but he agreed to go - and I think he enjoyed some of the displays. We are both utilitarian so quite a few of the displays didn't grab our attention. I kept reminding myself that the fair featured "people who make things just because they can." I was especially fascinated by the Redneck Pool Heater.

We also recycled (and got a receipt for 2006 tax purposes!) most of the outdated computer equipment that had been hidden away (out of sight, out of mind) in a few closets. The ACCRC was at the faire taking electronics equipment for free. Gone now are: my old August 1997 Windows 95 Dell XPS M233 CPU / keyboard / speakers / subwoofer and my monitor-stopped-working-a-while-ago October 2000 iMac / keyboard / mouse / ZIP drive.

About Cheryl

Enjoys crocheting, gardening, cats, NASCAR (especially Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch!), reading, photography, snorkeling in Kailua-Kona with sea turtles, Sizzler's Mega Bacon Cheeseburgers, hot and iced decaf coffee, dark chocolate, color (yarn, fabric), playing around with web technologies - not necessarily in that order! Still very much a beginner with quilting, knitting, and sewing. Donates crocheted lap blankets.
