December 24 on Hollis Ave

Dec 25 2016 Published by under Food, Music

As I boil eggs to make deviled eggs and get ready to inject my turkey with Cajun seasoning, I'm jamming out to some of my favorite Christmas tunes.

So if you are celebrating the holidays or just a regular Sunday tomorrow. Have a good one and I hope the spread is covered in the Denver game.

My soundtrack to science

Sep 22 2013 Published by under Music

I often listen to music when reading articles or doing a bit of writing.  Typically I need music that is amenable to playing in the background and not drawing away my attention from the task at hand.  This typically ends up being classical music or movie soundtracks (Tyler Bates, Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams), or Brian Eno.  I recently purchased the soundtrack to the movie Moneyball and was playing it while writing up some notes today and found it to be fabulous.  I really like "The Mighty Rio Grande" by This Will Destroy You.

What do you folks listen to when you read or write, or choose not to in order to concentrate?

Midnight Jamming...

May 29 2013 Published by under Music

While I'm running some Westerns here are some tunes to enjoy.

Jake Bugg "Lightning Bolt" (for some reason I find this hipster palatable)

Stony looping Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's "Can't Hold Us" (very creative use of real time looping)

Daniel Park "You Say Hello, I Say Herrow (The Asian Song)"

The Cure came on the radio this morning and I can't get this song out of my head.  Damn you.  Have a great Friday and an awesome weekend.

Mo Bluegrass: Freebird edition...

Apr 25 2012 Published by under Music

As the resident southerner of Scientopia I have to make sure to keep you guys posted on all things hickish.  Thus enjoy this bluegrass rendition of a favorite song of mine from some greasy long haired boys from down in Florida.
