Enjoying my last cup of coffee of the day and listening to these tunes, among others. We (my family and I) have a wonderful friend and theater Brother who is also a talented musician. Please do click here to check out Zig the Ripper for some pretty awesome rap and hip hop tunes. He just uploaded some new instrumentals to the site today.

We have rainy weather passing through and these songs seem most appropriate for that. The first is a dubstep reincarnation of Rachmaninoff’s ‘Prelude in C Sharp Minor’ and the second is a dance remix of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. My son brought both of them to my attention and you should know that the first one will not sound like anything unless you have good speakers.
And here’s a chillstep piece for you.

My focus this month is Steampunk. We have an opportunity to go to a Steampunk event and I’m busy putting five costumes together. And I am always wondering where my time goes! *wry chuckle* So I thought I’d look for some appropriate tunes.
OK, the next one made me laugh at one point and I pretty much smiled through the rest of the song. Interesting…and probably not everyone’s cup of tea…but I thought it was share-worthy.
Don’t know much about Steampunk? Not sure what to wear to a Steampunk event? The artwork shown with the music in this video is just for you.
Hope you enjoy the above tunes. But since they’re not much for winding down, I’ll add a chill mix.

One of my favorite tunes is Imogene Heap’s ‘Hide and Seek’. I like it because it’s a challenge for me to sing along. When I looked for the song on YouTube today, I found this super nifty cover of the song. I thought I’d share it.
And here’s the version I heard first. It’s a lyric video so the sound quality isn’t as good as it could be. I think it’s the original version but there are a couple of versions floating around so I could be wrong. I know there’s a dance remix but I didn’t like it so much.
And here’s a bit of dance music for you from MrSuicideSheep’s YouTube channel.

I remember celebrating the 50th wedding anniversaries of both my sets of grandparents. Both my paternal and maternal grandparents were married until death parted them. My grandfathers have passed on and both of my grandmothers are still living. Both of my parents are still together. Perhaps they are at least part of the reason John and I are continuing to work together to make our own marriage last and be as successful as possible. There’s something to be said for continuity and putting down roots.
As I stated in an earlier post, John and I celebrate 20 years together this year…tomorrow, to be precise. A few family members and friends-who-we-call-family came by over the weekend to celebrate with us. It was just a ‘gathering’, simply done in a community style but it was great to have people we love around us, encouraging us on. We had such a great time hanging out with them.
I just wanted to share a photo of some of my family at our favorite coffee shop. And then I’ll share some music…because I love music almost as much as I love the people who I’ve been blessed to have around me.
I /really/ like this tune! I hope you’ll enjoy it, too, and check out the artist on Sound Cloud.

In honor of all the wonderful people who have helped shape us (my husband, my kids and me) into the people we are today, and in honor of the 20 years John and I have been together…
OK, OK…the first two were indeed on the cheesy side to some extent but here’s a nice melodic dubstep that’s labeled ‘sacred-family’. I believe that fits the bill nicely. I hope you enjoy it! If you do, be sure to check out the links under the video to support the artist!
And now I’ll go drink my tea.
