Secret Crush

My dear friend is responsible for this crazy video and I LOVE it!!! If any thing deserves to go viral online I think this does. He is the original hipster. He was hip before it was cool. I love it because it is so him and that makes me happy.

Anyways this song goes out to that special Secret Crush of mine. I might not even know who you are but I like this song.

Called In.

It was just one of those days. I couldn’t go in to work feeling like this. So I had myself a sick day, aka a sleep day. I felt like I was cemented to my bed. Or in Karli’s words “Smooshed to the bed all day”. I probably shouldn’t blog on my sick day, if you are well enough to blog aren’t you well enough to work? No, no not at all. Blogging is quite a challenge at this point, like everything else but I have to try something new because I started to dream that I had gone to Russia to see Justin Bieber in concert. I have been shopping online for things I don’t ever need, vases from Indonesia and this throw:

throw   Throws, they are like baby blankets for adults. That is not practical, it isn’t like we are going to carry them around everywhere with us. We are going to throw them over something else to hide a small portion of that object, like a chair or a bed. Yes, yes we are and that place will become a place of comfort, a welcoming area of rest. Maybe  I do need a throw.

I also am chatting with old friends online and it has been long enough that there is too much to say and maybe not long enough to create enough to say. In our words and we avoid our lack of staying in contact and express our gratitude for each other in the past. All of which reminds me to be a better friend.

I watched this and thought of another friend who needs to remember that These times will pass.

I feel like I go hit with that train in Russia, what train? The one I blogged about years ago. Those were pretty cool words that accompanied that sick photo. "A train with a different opinion, heading West." by Tree GoreI so dislike being sick.

I pinned this:

shadows and even on this day in which I called in and did a whole lot of nothing, I look back over my blog post and I find I did find those extraordinary things, those hidden treasures.

Then There is the Song You Can Never Get Enough of….

Repeat, repeat, repeat. Anyone else would be going crazy but it fits so well with life. Every note, line, and pause, is perfect. You know the feeling. You have been here. Feeling like a crazy person as you play it once again. Maybe one more time, will be too much, it starts, never enough. That’s the moment I am talking about. L.O.V.E.

Cool China Conference

I am not sure how your life goes but mine is the type that at times I stumble onto a Cool China Conference and I embrace it. I usually learn quite a bit and enjoy it even more.
It all happened like this: I was going to go see Hiliary Weeks talk about the power of our thoughts (For more on this Click here, so awesome!) and I did, but I told my sisters to give me a ride and that I would just walk home.
Instead of walking home I went to the library where I stumbled across what seemed to be a conference about Mormonism and I listened in on it for a good 15 minutes and then went searching for the China Conference. It was really cool and I learned more about one of the countries I love. The best surprise is that the band Matteo ( blogged about Matteo before, get a free song)  was there to preform. So I had to stay and listen to them. Here is a really poor video of them, my fault not theirs.

At the Hari Krishna Temple in Utah. Many gathered for the anual color fest a festival that rings in spring. Bright colored chalk is thrown into the air.

I am a HUGE Andrew Belle FAN!!

I don’t thin that I have expressed that sufficiently in this blog. I love his voice.  I love his music.  Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day and then there is Thanksgiving, Christmas  is still too far away. BUT….  this is cause to let a  little Christmas slip into our lives.  

I was lucky enough to hear about him from my rocking sister Krystal. It was her birthday and we were headed home for the weekend when she switched the plans  into going to SLC to see one of her favorite singers. I am glad she did because we were able to meet him. She got a great birthday hug and I was introduced to his music.  We have met him one other time. Here is some evidence :

(My sister is what I call the celebrity-snuggler. I will show more proof of this in a later post.)

MATTEO

What would be an interesting  musical combination? Chinese street markets meets Americana indie. But some how it is perfect. Perhaps it is because I love indie music, perhaps it is I spent some time in China, or perhaps they just mix the two perfectly to create a sound that is unique them.

Matteo is the sum of four musicians’ many years meandering through Chinese street markets and mountains. A hearty collection of Chinese traditional instruments were carried or shipped back across the pacific, including the centerpiece of Matteo’s live performances: a 6 foot Chinese zither harp. The instruments have an incredibly unique and rich tone and timbre, but often traditional Chinese music is inaccessible to western audiences. Matteo keeps their roots in american indie-folk, while allowing the influence of the distinct instruments to saturate into the music. The result is a strangely beautiful acoustic blend that navigates over gimmick into a refreshing and genuine sound.”

Just wait until it gets really into this video, trust me folks.

Find them on Facebook and get a free download. I love stumbling across a  good band on Facebook.
