A selection of random videos & music for the weekend

As we move into the weekend, here's a bunch of random fun/inspiring/cool/creative bits of multimedia that I wanted to share.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

The Highwayman
Here's a cool little poem/story that's even cooler as set to the beautiful sounds of Loreena McKennitt

Morgan & Destiny's Eleventeenth Date: The Zeppelin Zoo
An intriguingly hilariously creative video created by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's online production company.

Let Me Fall
A thought provoking song by Josh Groban

Game On
Hilarious Bollywood style song promoting The online series I watched intently for the first 'season' but then stopped following.

I've Got Friends
A cool sound and creatively stylized video

Lost Things
A rather creative and fun stop-motion film with a cool song as the backdrop

My high school English teacher played "The Highwayman" for us one day in class, and I have loved it ever since.

I love that you review music, too.

As a sahm mom to 3 boys, I am so out of it when it comes to finding new music. I follow "word cafe" on NPR, but that's kind of hit and miss.


We have the same tastes.

I had to memorize a few verses of "The Highwayman" back in Jr. High. I still can recite bits and pieces of it to this day. As for the Shakespeare I had to 'memorize,' well, that's been forgotten since the day I 'learned' it.

But oh, long live The Guild. Season 2 was great. I haven't started 3 yet, but you should catch up on them. Hilarious stuff, friend.

Really like that "I've got friends" song. The Bollywood video was awesome.

LOVE The Highwayman! And her voice is heavenly.

When it comes to movie music my favourite is the one from epic movies, and amazing Loreena McKennitt can often be heard in main themes in such films. I think my favourite song from Loreena is DANTE'S PRAYER.

I also adore Natacha Atlas in LIGHT OF LIFE the theme of KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, and Moya Brennan in TELL ME NOW for KING ARTHUR.
