Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.

 

For Morphine Fans

This is a two-cd + dvd set including music and video footage from various Mark Sandman projects (not just Morphine). I haven't even listened to the cd part yet. The dvd is great. It's well-presented and a bit quirky, but it feels appropriate. Some of the interviews are wonderful, and there is lots of music on the dvd portion aside from the packaged videos. I was disappointed with the selection of footage of Morphine, but the songs chosen from the other bands make up for it, and the videos are superb.

My guess is that you either really love this music or you hate it. I love it. Morphine was one of the best live shows I've ever seen. I dragged a bunch of unsuspecting coworkers to see them in Indianapolis and I don't think any of them liked it but I was standing right in front of the stage and I really didn't care what they thought. That music, his voice.... On stage he was supersexy. To say the least.
