Happy Easter

Black & White

few words of the day: i am beginning to really love black and white. & music. but not dancing.

last.fm is like a really cool online radio.

you can listen on the website, but i prefer using the downloadable player.

to get started, all you do is type in an artist name, and it automatically plays songs by that artist and similar musicians. if you don't like the song you can skip it or ban it. or you can "love it" and/or add it to your playlist.

why i really like this - last.fm is like a great musical discovery center. most of the songs and artists i listen to i have never heard (heard of) before. i like expanding my listening selection, and last.fm does all the work for me. also, when last.fm is playing a song, it shows a brief biography of the artist. i love learning about who i am listening to. it makes it much more personal, which i think enhances the music.

plus, when you listen online like this, it is totally legal and costs nothing. which appeals to me very much.

currently, i believe that this family is failing at blogging. drey's birthday was on feb. 9th. we do have pictures and a story, but the pictures are still on the camera. eventually we will get the birthday posted, but i'm counting on mom doing that, not me. also, mom recently went to arizona and mexico, but again that is for her to write. so, in the meantime, to add something to this blog, i've decided to post about random things that i like.

pt. 1 - isight camera

my laptop has a built-in camera. the photo quality is poor, but it still has the ability to entertain me for a very long time. it's also a big hit with other people. here are some pictures to give you an idea of what this magical camera is capable of making people do (sorry they are mostly of me, but, well, it is mine):

on a side note, i played guitar hero for the first time this weekend.
