Coffee and Tunes

John and I are starting our morning off with the delicious sounds of percolating coffee and melodic dubstep. I hope you enjoy your coffee, tea, or cocoa while checking out these tunes.

My apologies for sharing only two tunes with you today. Our internet isn’t the best and it seems to get worse every day. It is what it is. At least we have internet access and can connect with people. So I wonder how I will shine today. How will you?

Coffee And Tunes

I’ve been fighting a cold this past week. I lost my voice for a total of 4 days, which is always quite trying for me. It’s what usually happens, though, when I catch this type of cold. *sigh* Anyway, this morning, I sound like a squeaky hinge, which while it may sound horrible does indicate positive progress. So as John and I drink our nice, warm mugs of Community Coffee dark roast, complete with honey and milk (and in my case, a dash of cinnamon and ginger), we’re waking up to these tunes. Well, I’m not a morning person like him, so it takes me a bit longer to actually wake up. :)

This first one is probably well known by many. It’s one of our son’s favorites and it’s been stuck in my head for a while.

And for the long mix today…more space music. :)

Cocoa, Coffee, And Tunes

Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed the holiday break (if you had one). We were able to spend Thanksgiving with family and we really enjoyed it. While on break, I was able to get some drawing pens, which I’ve already put to use, and brush tip pens that I hope to employ soon in my artwork. If you’d like to see my artwork, you can go to http://www.pianolady32.deviantart.com/gallery/ and all my work is posted there. Some of it is up for sale. Some of it is offered as a free download for personal use only.

Now on with the usual! The kids, John and I are enjoying morning coffee and cocoa as we check out these tunes and get back into the swing of things. Well, we’re trying to, in spite of this nasty cold we seem to have picked up somewhere. I hope you enjoy the tunes!

Oskar Schuster has new work out! Yea!

And your long mix for today’s tunes…

Tea and Tunes

My apologies for yet another long break between posts. This time, the cause was bad weather knocking out the internet. I hope you’ll enjoy these tunes as you drink your tea…or coffee…or other warm beverage of choice. We are, after all, getting into colder weather in our neck of the woods. Hot cocoa and hot apple cider are two nice choices to warm you on cold nights.

For the long mix, I’ve chosen ambient music with a space theme. I hope you enjoy it!

Tea and Tunes

My sincerest apologies for such a long space between posts! The only reasons I can give are being very busy and very tired. We’re preparing for Thanksgiving so that’s taken up some of our time, as well. John and I will be enjoying our tea to the gems I discovered this evening. I hope you will enjoy the tunes, as well.

Electus has posted a couple of new tunes I’d like to share with you this evening. You saw that coming, right? Since all my readers know I love Electus. :) This first one is…mechanical! It sounds that way to me, anyway, like making clever use of interesting objects to create music…

The second one also has a mechanical sound but it seems more magical, too.

The next two are short. I’m having trouble finding long mixes I haven’t already shared, that I also think are nice enough to pass on to my readers.

After listening to this one, I think I really like the style of the Adventure Club remixes. They build you up, drive you forward, give you rest, then build you up again. I find it interesting enough to keep listening in most cases. :)

Coffee and Tunes: Steampunk Edition

As John and I drink our morning coffee and make last minute costume adjustments in our mad scramble to prepare for today’s Steampunk and Makers Fair, these are the tunes we’re checking out to prep our minds and spirits. I hope you enjoy them!

OK, this last longer musical piece has ‘experimental’ in the tag line. So prepare yourself for something a little bit different.

Hero or Villain

I saw this painting yesterday in a restaurant named ‘The Tuck Shop‘ where we had been for our dinner after the gym. There were many like this, but this one caught my eye because of the way it delivered a quote from my favorite superhero movie, The Dark Knight, in a painting. Very neatly done. I was so tempted to buy it, but since I don’t have any space in my home for the paintings I had to let it go. The cost of the painting in ₹ is also captured. Anyone fancy it?

In case you need the quote clearly here it is:

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
