Music Lover

I am a music lover at heart. I actually like a wide range of music. Sometimes I do not like a particular style of music all that much, but I might like an individual song. One day I make like listening to Beethoven and then later I might listen to a song from Metallica called Sandman (interesting enough they did a couple songs with a full orchestra supporting them live on TV). My current favorite music falls in the categories of trance and techno. The trance music I like is most often characterized as vocal uplifting trance which often has strong melodic vocals to support the music. Interesting enough, there is a relationship between some trance music and classical music (

Today on CBC radio, I heard this newish artist. Theresa Andersson. She sings a dance soul style. She reminds me a little of Katie Tunstall.

Check out her video on YouTube.

Here is her website.

Also she will be on TV in February.

Pinky and the Brain

Brain's plan for the taking over the world today. How can I apply this in my life to make it better? This is the question we should all be asking ourselves.

"I believe I have conceived my most brilliant plan to date. I shall use subliminal mind control to take over the world...a subliminal message a recorded message perceived only by the subconscious human mind. I have recorded such a message. [Tape playing] 'Citizens of the world, you are under my control. You will do whatever I say.'...If people heard this message enough times, they would succumb to my control and we could take over the world...The only problem, how to get this message repeated, worldwide air play..." "I will go to Nashville and become the biggest country music star of all time. Everyone will hear my record and my subliminal message, and I will take over the world!"

Analysis of Chicken Crossing the Road


We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either against us or for us. There is no middle ground here.

Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it!

The chicken's habitat on the other side of the road had been polluted by unchecked industrial greed. The chicken did not reach the unspoiled habitat on the other side of the road because it was crushed by the wheels of a gas-guzzling SUV.

To steal the job of a decent, hard-working American.

I don't know why the chicken crossed the road, but I'll bet it was getting a government grant to cross the road, and I'll bet that somebody out there is already forming a support group to help chickens with crossing-the-road syndrome. Can you believe this? How much more of this can real Americans take? Chickens crossing the road paid for by their tax dollars. And when I say tax dollars, I'm talking about your money, money the government took from you to build a road for chickens to cross.

No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

To die in the rain. Alone.

I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart-warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.

Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together - in peace.

It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

It was a historic inevitability.

What chicken?

To boldly go where no chicken has ever gone before.

The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

I have just witnessed eChicken2003, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook, - and internet explorer is an integral part of eChicken.

Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?

I invented the chicken!

And God came down from heaven, and he said unto the chicken THOU SHALT CROSS THE ROAD. And the chicken didst cross the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Did I miss one?

Back Again- Norway

I am back again. Not much to say, but I thought I would put in an entry to my blog.

Sometimes music helps you get through life.

Here are some bands from Norway and their songs to check out. You may be familiar with the first on the list.

A-HA- "Take on me" "Living a Boys Adventure Tale" "The Sun Always Shines on TV"

Kings of Convenience- "I'd Rather Dance" "Misread"

R√łyksopp- "Remind me" "What Else Is There?"

Of course, my Sundquist family line comes from Sweden and Sweden is right next door to Norway!

Did I mention my best friend growing up went to Denmark on his mission, which is just south of Norway?

Norge rules!
