Downton Abbey Soundtrack & Book: Tweeting with the Earl

Coming soon to the UK, a Downton Abbey soundtrack and book.

First, some comments about the soundtrack. I had very, very brief conversation with the Earl of Grantham himself (Hugh Bonneville) on Twitter about the soundtrack (Note: I have removed one person’s name from the conversation.):

@hughbon Hugh Bonneville: I absolutely love John Lunn’s score [...]

Amazon’s Free Daily Christmas Song

Amazon is giving away a free Christmas song each day until Christmas! I love Christmas music…not all of it, but a lot of it so I hope I remember to see what Amazon is offering each day. And don’t forget that iTunes offers a song or two or three each Tuesday for a week, but [...]

3D Sidewalk Art

Isn’t this fun?

I blogged about 3D art once before here. I’d have to learn to draw before I could even attempt this fun stuff!

Dancing with Beyonce

This is too funny. They won't let the video be embedded, so you'll have to follow the link to see Shane dance with Beyonce. I'm so out of it, this is the first time I've heard the song, even though I've heard the title mentioned a few times. So, go. Have a laugh and dance [...]

Shadowing A Wonderful World

OK, this just needs to be shared. I’ve seen it on a few blogs, maybe you have also. Watch. Trust me. It’s Wonderful.

You know what’s great about blogging these things…it’s not just sharing, but it’s getting to come back and see it again when I want to, because it’s in my blog where I can [...]

iPod iScmod

Lately when I listen to music on my computer using iTunes, I’m getting a lot of skips and bounces during the songs. It’s very, very, very annoying. I’m not sure what is causing this. Is anyone else having this problem?

I’m not sure if this started when I downloaded the first of version 7 of iTunes [...]

Lions and Helmets and Bears…Oh My!

Swollen heads too big for Bears’ helmets? Yep!

Just as they did in 1985 when the Bears last made it to the Super Bowl, the famed 113 year-old lion statutes in front of the Chicago Institute of Art are being dressed up in Bears’ helmets. Only…oh my!

These are brand new, custom-made, fiberglass helmets that they tried [...]

Towering Sale or Not?

Tower Records here in the U.S. is closing down and selling out all their CDs and DVDs. This started out as a pathetic sale because their prices were only 10% off their lowest ticketed prices. Sounds good, but their lowest ticketed price was full retail! So their 10% off was 10 to 30% higher than [...]

Top 25 Musicals

The American Film Institute (AFI) has released their list of the top 25 musicals. I used to love musicals, but I think I over watched them and have needed a break from them the past several years. I have to agree with both EEK and Laura that this AFI list is, well, pardon the pun, [...]
