New Music

The radio stations here are so awful that I quit listening. Maybe 2 years ago. Or longer. I can’t remember when I actually made the decision. It was more like just not bothering to turn on the radio on when I got in the car and just riding in silence so I could think about stuff. The radio just became an annoyance. I don’t even miss it. But how are we supposed to find about new music if we don’t listen to the radio? I don’t know abut you but I watch the David Letterman show and they have a guest band or vocalist every night. They have some good acts and its just enough to make me notice their name and look them up online for their new album.

Burlesque

Just watched the movie, Burlesque. It stars Cher and Christina Aguilera and several other people who look familiar from hit TV shows and other movies. I was mostly wanting to watch Cher. She sings in the movie and still has a great voice. I don’t know that the movie was all that great – the story line was pretty weak and predictable. But the soundtrack was awesome.

Piggy Banks

Do you have a piggy bank? I have a big pink one. It sits on top of my washing machine. For some reason, that is where all the loose change always turns up. When I am doing laundry I take the loose change out of my pockets and plunk it into The Pig. It is amazing how much money ends up in that pig. Last time I took it to the bank and turned in all the change they gave me over $300 in my checking account.
