Hello Nano

Apple's running an iPod Nano replacement program for first generation Nanos. Apparently their batteries are prone to overheating. I know I bought a nano years ago for Nike+ use, but wasn't sure what generation it was--first or second. Ended up using my iPod touch for the same purposes. Dug up the Nano and plugged it in and found the serial number after it finally had enough energy to boot up. Turns out I do have a first generation one. I must have bought it right when the second-generation ones came out. Looking forward to getting a new one, although I'm not sure what I'll do with it.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 9

Feels like the Bleak Midwinter these days.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 8

Since some shopping has already been done, time to get a head start on wrapping.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 7

From Jon Anderson's(!) Three Ships album from the early 80s.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 6

OK, two tracks by Billy May and his Orchestra today. First, let's start a movement to put the Santa Claus back in Christmas.


Bonus track: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo by Billy May and his Orchestra.

Musical Advent Calendar Day 5

Guess I'm a traditionalist at heart, which means Bing Crosby, the cornerstone of Christmas Music. Today's pick is Bing Crosby's Do You Hear What I Hear?


Bonus Track: (Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag by Kay Starr

Musical Advent Calendar Day 4

Day 4 of the musical Advent calendar. Probably my favorite contemporary take on a classic. Since it snowed....


Bonus track, since I couldn't pick just one: We Wish you the Merriest

Musical Advent Calendar Day 3

Trying to keep things seasonal with Dean:


Musical Advent Calendar Day 2

Feeling a little Lounge-y today:


Musical Advent Calendar Day 1

Let's start things slowly. A handful of Christmas decoration are up in the neighborhood and some folks have their trees up already, which I just will never understand. That said, the holiday season is upon us. No snow just yet.

First up: Christmas is coming. From the only modern musical classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
