Music Monday: Sæglópur by Sigur Ros

https://youtu.be/TFHCWZh0_Co I got the heck out of dodge. By dodge, I mean 'Winnipeg' for a short gateaway. Technicially, I needed to stay home for 14 days to make the vaccine gain full immunity. In the end, I wanted to get out and have some time away from my condo, away from the city, and return … Continue reading Music Monday: Sæglópur by Sigur Ros

Music Monday: Current Favourites

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/37i9dQZF1EpvcuwnMylxTs?si=55a0688562ad4ba7 I will listen to a song a repeat during a task. The lyrics may inspire me during a task, the music turns off a the monkey-chatter part of my brain to help me focus, or I want to dance out an emotion. Having a monthly subscription to Spotify proved a smart investment since I … Continue reading Music Monday: Current Favourites

#MusicMonday: Epiphany by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

https://youtu.be/zNXY1av-NUE I decided to continue with a theme from one earlier post and highlight one of the many beautiful musical tracks from Pixar's latest movie 'Soul.' While portions of it had me going 'uh?' this movie took big risks to talk about a big theme: What is the meaning of our own lives?

Music Monday: 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton)

As library staff worked from home, a call went out for 1-2 people to work 9-5 and cover a time gap for our online chat service. My sleep was already crappy making my 7:30-3:30 shift not a good fit for working from from home. I volunteered for the sake of my mental health. I immediately … Continue reading Music Monday: 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton)

Music Monday: My 70’s Mixtape (Or Fatima’s Awesome Mix Vol 1)

As a kid, I grew up surrounded by LPs and 45s. My brother came of age in the 70's and we had one of those stereo systems that double as living room furniture. (Click here for an example.) I spent hours spinning records, repeating my favourite 45s from his collection. Sometimes it's the K-Tel collections … Continue reading Music Monday: My 70’s Mixtape (Or Fatima’s Awesome Mix Vol 1)

Music Monday: Portals By Alan Silvestri

Over the weekend I watched 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame.' The tone and mood of the movies matched what's going on in my life. Last week, my campus had a study break to enable staff, and students, to prepare for online learning. I scrambled to brush on WebEx, a meeting software provided by the … Continue reading Music Monday: Portals By Alan Silvestri

Music Monday: This Is Me by Keala Settle

Last year, I listened to this song on repeat. To this day, I still haven't seen The Greatest Showman and  the way they portray PT Barnum; Hugh Jackman can't sing and dance his way around them. But this song, this song sung by Keala Settle...holy cow. https://youtu.be/wEJd2RyGm8Q For Keala Settle, even with Broadway experience, she … Continue reading Music Monday: This Is Me by Keala Settle
