Happy early Friday!
I actually finished the post early, so I decided to go ahead and publish it, instead of waiting for Friday.
This week I found my new musical obsession! This really is me:
Boy 1 started cello lessons last week, and Boy 2 started piano lessons this week. I searched for cello music in Spotify to try to show Boy 1 how beautiful the cello is and what it sounds like. I found all that and more in a cello group (are two people a group?) called 2CELLOS. Has anyone heard of them?
If you haven't, watch the video below, to the end. It was hard to choose a video to introduce them to you, because I like so many (Celloverse!). Several of the songs I put on my Adven/Realm playlist in Spotify, because they feel like the Realm to me. I shared the one below (Trooper Overture) because it clearly shows the connection of classical instruments with rock music, and that's how I see the connection between the Realm and Adven.
They play a cover of Michael Jackson's They Don't Care About Us, and the push and pull of the music matches the theme of Through the Fairy Ring, where Hazel is caught between Fairy and Pixie politics. The inspiration for the story came from the last presidential race, after all.
The last is Benedictus which reminds me of a specific scene in Through the Fairy Ring between Hazel and her children. So, I hope you enjoy the video. If you get lured away, be sure to come back and tell me what you think!
Last week's winner for funniest video was (overwhelmingly):
On to the new photos!
|Just covering all bases.|
|That is truly animal cruelty!!|
|A scene from a bad horror film!|
|Just looking at it makes me uncomfortable.|
|She becomes middle-aged Barbie.|
The sexy pug wins it for me. He reminds me of a student I had a few years ago. He wore polo shirts like that and he thought he was all that and more. The pug's smug expression matches his perfectly.
What's your favorite?
Did you like the 2CELLOS?
