Christmas In Your Eyes

Another holiday, another song… (well a new recording, anyway) with a little video to entertain you while you listen.

“Happy Christmas holidays everyone! It’s time for another song (not the one I planned, but it’s sweeter….)

Your present is a song I wrote when my daughter was two. You can interpret it any way you like, but I think it’s for parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends and family who get a fresh look at the joys of the season….

It’s on Bandcamp too, especially for the free audio streaming.

 

Peace,

P.S. An experiment in posting backwards — Facebook first and embedded here. What’s the point of life if not to test things, technical and otherwise? So I learned that you can’t read the text on the embed thanks to my current theme, and it steals you away to Facebookland instead of opening a new window. But the video will stream faster.

P.P.S.  A quick recording on in Logic X with my electric piano and the MIDI function. I do not love the string sounds as much as I hoped.

Good Luck on Sunday, Lin Manuel-Miranda!

I do think La La Land may take it, but “Where I’ll Go” is a fabulous film song. Not as funny as “You’re Welcome” and “Shiny” but critical to defining Moana.

But I am really here (spoiler?) to finally say (now that everybody has had a chance to see it) how glad I am to see the pseudopod from James Cameron’s 80’s film “The Abyss” get more work in “Moana,” and a bigger role too.

Creative uploads water abyss pseudopod (If you haven’t seen it, you will figure it out when you do.)

It’s a fabulous film, you should see it if you haven’t. (I meant “The Abyss” but “Moana” too.) Science fiction but heartfelt with great performances and a better story than “Titanic”, I think. Though even longer and wetter. No, I am not going to make a dirty joke, instead  I will say: A shame Disney isn’t adding it to their parks instead of “Avatar.” 🙂

P.S. As I write this, Sunday is the next Academy Awards, aka Oscars 2017. In case you read this before any other Sunday.

P.P.S. Now I want ice cream. Who keeps bringing up sundaes?
