Set 1 2012, 11:49 di emcxmcMy favourite female singers with age and birthday (listed chronologic), place of birth (if known), short description (from Wikipedia) and picture (only included for the deceased ones).
(born before 1940)
† Bessie Smith (born April 15, 1894, Chattanooga, Tennessee, U.S., died September 26, 1937), sometimes referred to as "The Empress of the Blues," was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and, along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists.
† Marlene Dietrich (27 December 1901 – 6 May 1992, Berlin, Germany) was a German-born American actress and singer.Although she still made occasional films in the post-war years, Dietrich spent most of the 1950s to the 1970s touring the world as a successful show performer. In 1999 the American Film Institute named Dietrich the ninth greatest female star of all time.

Last year Cadence Weapon and fellow musicians Laura Barrett, Mark Hamilton (Woodpigeon), and filmmaker Peter Lynch (Project Grizzly) paired up to travel into Waterton Lakes National Park to write collaborative songs while experiencing Canada's rugged terrain, all captured on HD film, creating one of thirteen tales of the inspiring new documentary series The National Parks Project.

Feb 1 2011, 10:19 di jane_eyre07I did this a few years ago. Since my top 50 has changed quite a bit in the last few years, I figured I'd do this again.
1. How did you get into #31? I saw Sarah Harmer's You Were Here album at Best Buy. For some reason, I was intrigued by the cover so I went home and sampled it on the internet. I liked what I heard, so I bought the album and everything else she released after that.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by #22? I've been listening to Sonic Youth since high school, so it is kind of hard of to pinpoint which song I heard first. I'm pretty sure it was Kool Thing. One of my classmates played it a music appreciation class I took my junior year of high school. It remains my favorite song by them.
3. What's your favorite lyric by #29?
I love a lot of Hole lyrics. But my favorite would have to be from Doll Parts. That song has always been my favorite from them and has always resonated with me.

See my blog for even more bad photography: My Aimz is True
There was a huge thunderstorm on Saturday, June 24, so I decided to wait out the weather over a breakfast/lunch of bacon sandwiches and onion rings before heading back to Hillside. Needless to say I arrived at Day 2 of Hillside much later than I wanted to, and I missed Royal Wood and The Wooden Sky. After sitting in my Jeep for a while, waiting for the damn rain to stop, I finally sucked it up and headed in, my bright yellow raincoat keeping me dry.
I attended Hillside once before in 2008, and that year I was totally blow away by two different workshops. The first one was called "Guitar Dreams." This workshop featured Danny Michel, Liz Powell, Sue Foley, and David Woodhead. All four of them blew me away. Michel started out with electric guitar doing a very stripped-down version of Peter Gabriel's Games Without Frontiers and got the crowd to whistle along. …

Giu 24 2010, 20:22 di jurlacherAw jeez, once again summer is absolutely flying by - I need it to slow the heck down so I can do some darn stats! Among so many other things: visa applications, document reviews, testing, scoring, letter-writing, transcript-getting, results-writing, discussion-writing, revision-doing, re-revision-doing, and oh right having fun now and then. Maybe. A little. June has been a pretty good month for fun, actually, perhaps a smidgen too good considering how far behind my overly ambitious thesis goals I am. There was a big fancy wedding, a fun museum trip, a safari near Hamilton, an enjoyable if abbreviated Great Lake Swimmers show, a trip to a petting farm, and a pretty great concert by a decidedly not-dead Gordon Lightfoot. Luckily for my productivity, there won't be any more major ventures until a wedding at the end of the summer, though there are some concerts here and there at least to keep me sane.
Oh, the music! I've book-ended this mix with tracks which featured in the two shows I saw this month…
