I was on Devour.com (warning: you could lose hours on this site) and clicked through to the trailer for “Double”, which looks a little creepy but very good. Anyhow, the music in the trailer was perfect for it, and a great blues song, so I searched for “the song in the Double trailer” and came up with Son House, a name I’d never heard. First hit was for the Youtube video, which in turn had a link to the album on Amazon (a steal at $5.99). He’s in Spotify, too. Check him out.
So, in a few short minutes I’ve got a new movie added to the watchlist and a new album to listen to this morning while I work.
“SINGING INTO A MICROPHONE AND LEARNING TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT…THAT\’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR PEOPLE TO DO… IT\’S NOT ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN A COMPUTER. IT\’S ABOUT WHAT GOES ON IN HERE AND HERE (POINTS TO HEART AND HEAD.)”
Hip-Checked â€” “For the past year HP has looked like a dog being tempted on opposite sides of the room by two treats. Constantly rushing back and forth so as to not lose either of the treats, but never actually getting either of the treats.”
The Birdy – great way to track spending. Simply respond to one email each day. I use Evernote to do the same thing – but I do it live – as soon as I spend it, I email my Evernote account like this: 2011 Taxes – Expense – Software – App Store – $9.99 – but that doesn’t give me pretty charts.
The Birdy would go great with SassyCents, a new “how to be smart with your money” blog from Tammy Thorn.
