Debussy, Arabesque #1, Piano Solo (animation ver. 2) (by smalin)

This is so relaxing.  I get mesmerized by all the circles.

I don’t want to close my eyes because I know I’ll fall asleep while listening.

Nice poster art. I just watched it on RED. The music from this movie was pretty good, and I like the message it sends out to the viewer.

Gotye – Bronte

This song.  I have no words for it.  I didn’t understand what he was talking about at first.

I cannot stop crying.

I am in love with this song.  I’ve been listening to it on repeat for hours.

Billions of Blistering Blue Barnacles – Damn Dirty Apes

Possibly the longest one ever. No training on Monday makes that a 5-day vacation. Yay! The bad news is that my evil stomach is acting up again and I’m stuck at home waiting it out. I feel like a bum all over again. The stomach has to get in tiptop shape soon because my cousin’s debut is coming up (read: tomorrow) and I’m part of the 18 shots. Perfect timing, Mr. Stomach. Behave because I have to at least tolerate one shot without vomiting.

Anyway, there was nothing better to do but watch youtube videos, and I found the acoustic version of Lady Gaga’s Poker Face. Since I don’t watch MTV or listen to the radio, I didn’t know any of her songs until Julie and Liz used Poker Face in our group presentation. Her music isn’t normally the kind that I would listen to (and it probably never will be), but I’d reconsider if she did more songs like this. This version really took me by surprise. She can sing. Really. I like it better than the original one. I’m playing it right now :-p

Here’s a video of a revised version of Vampire Weekend’s Walcott. Live strings! Compare and contrast with the original one.

And here’s another one from the same performance because I love Ezra Koenig’s eyebrows. That, and M79 is so good I could rave about it for days.

Hooray for long weekends.
