On a composer kick while writing email copy. Hans Zimmer and Alan Silvestri = awesome. Why you ask? Because they did the music to these:

Zimmer:

Modern Warfare, Sherlock Holmes, Dark Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Simpsons Movies, Rainman, Gladiator, and The Lion King 

Silverstri:

The Avengers, The Polar Express, The Mexican, Serendipity, Cast Away, Practical Magic, Richie Rich, Forrest Gump, Ferngully: The Last Rainforest, Preditor, The Abyss, Back to The Future, and Flight of the Navigator

Music makes movies. And these two are as impressive as they are dynamic. Was kind of a cool eye-opener and I just wanted to share.

It’s Monday. And Mondays suck. So here’s an Aussie granny seriously jamming out to The Black Keys’ Lonely Boy… with spoons. 

Harmonic chords on guitar are like tiny ear orgasms.

This is why I love the internet.

My buddy Dicarlo Thompson has yet another show tonight at Logan’s Place here in Jacksonville. Now, I have always associated him with this jam ever since the first time I heard him knocked it out at a party I was at. This is what he sound like in a bedroom with a crap cam. Live, he’s a crowd-pleaser with a really engaging set list. Check out some more of his vids on his youtube channel and ears up Jville. 

Well it was bad enough the feeling, and the first time it hit
When you realised your parents had let the world all go to shit
And that the values and ideals for which many had fought and died
Had been killed off in the committees and left to die by the wayside
[…]
Well we’ve been a good few hours drinking
So I’m going to say what everyone’s thinking
If we’re stuck on this ship and it’s sinking
Then we might as well have a parade

Heads up for Wed., apple has something cooking.
