Real thunder!  I do love a good storm if I'm not out in it!
That's what I'm hearing right now and after losing the electricity for more than 2 days because of a storm, the booms and moments of darkness aren't very appealing

I hear/feel your anxiety, LOL ;D  When I have been without power and/or all utilities for extended periods of time, I've been okay with it, because most of the time we have it. I am  thankful I live in a country where it is available, except for a few glitches, and taken as an everyday necessity (when actually it really isn't a necessity for living). I've actually enjoyed the total silence immensely during those times, rather than getting frustrated over what's going to go bad in fridge, no hot water, or no running water, and other inconveniences  it causes. Kind of like that saying, "Be still, and know that I am God" But that's just me!

My 10 year old playing his brand new keyboard, and my 12 year old diligently laboring to pluck out a D-chord on his brand new guitar. Should have started them about 5 years ago, but it's better late than never. I'm looking forward to the journey. :)

That's wonderful! I wish that I had learned an instrument when I was younger. Recently, I've been thinking about doing so. Its never too late I guess!

I didn't start playing guitar until I was 23. I'm not great, but I really enjoy it a lot. It's one of  the greatest pleasures in my life. So, you are certainly not too old to start!

Well, with three kids there sure isn't any total silence around here whether we have electricity or not.  ;)  And while we've used the bbq grill to cook and heat small quantities of water when there hasn't been power, it's still very nice to have the hot water heater and a working stove particularly when one of the offspring is a teenage boy. 

Some friends of ours nearby have a well so when they don't have power they also don't have water.  *that* is a serious loss that's on beyond inconvenient.

For the countless time: Neutral Milk Hotel. In the Aeroplane over the Sea.

This first two fantastic tracks appended (The King of Carrot Flowers Pts. 1-3):

This is second youtube "video" gives the general theme of the album (In the Aeroplane Over The Sea:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AH3CRVVBL9o

My favorite, Holland, 1945. Music simply with the lyrics (Other links on youtube give more explicit (in both senses) of the theme of this song. Some of them rather graphic images of the horros of the Shoah):

Wonderful group, Pentangle.  I remember listening to them in the mid-70s.  :)

Pentagle? Yipes. If you like folk from that period, perhaps you might like one of the more talented "folk" performers from today. Although I wince a bit when I use "folk" to describe her music, her talents both instrumental and lyrical seem to be far too complicated to fit into the genre.

Since many of her songs are longer than 10 minutes, they can't be captured in a single youtube clip. (Her less trained voice takes a bit of time to get used to, but really she writes some of the best lyrics of "pop" music nowadays.)

Some beautiful hymns and chants on Ancient Faith Radio as I rejoice on this glorious morning of the Feast of the Assumption. I hope everyone has a wonderful, joyous, and peaceful day. :)

And now for something completely different, Homer Simpson singing with Alpert's cover of "Spanish Flea": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yU1tiOczcWI

And while we're on the subject of music in The Simpsons, an old classic (with credit to the late Michael Jackson):  "Do the Bartman"

Football season is almost upon us again, which means it's time for that time-honored tradition of watching Charlie Brown try to kick the football from Lucy's hold with very painful results (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTUy_mlpgy4).  In honor of this, I thought it good to offer you Vince Guaraldi's great jazz chart, "Linus and Lucy".
LOL!  I just found this video of a 1981 TV special where Charlie Brown actually kicks the football out of Lucy's hold.

^ Brilliant musician.

Currently, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. My brother introduced me to them several months ago, and the album has been one of my top 10 since.
