I do believe a week away was exactly what I needed, and now I’m back. 🙂
I’ll try to discipline myself over the next week or so to actually write about what I did while I was away. To start with though, here’s a quickie for you.
While we were in the “Sky Church” at the Experience Music Project (now part of Seattle’s Museum of Popular Culture [MoPop]), I started hearing a song that I immediately started humming along with but didn’t immediately place. Turns out it was an artist named Petra Haden doing an almost completely a cappella remake of Journey‘s “Don’t Stop Belivein’“. Turns out there was a competition for creating videos to go with that song and the others on the same compilation album, and YouTube has the video for this one. I don’t particularly like the spoken word portion. It doesn’t fit with the hyper-accuracy of the rest of the song, but I forgive it anyway. 🙂
BTW, this song was recorded for an album full of “guilty pleasure” songs.
