Music Monday : Z

I was so close to having the alphabet finished in time to have a halloween special. But I guess we can't have everything we want.

On the bright side we have finally reached the letter Z, and I feel slightly accomplished. It might not mean anything to you, but to me, well It feels wonderful to have completed a self imposed challenge. Even if it is a bit of a silly one.

The word of the week is :

zymurgy :  branch of chemistry dealing with brewing and distilling

Not sure where you will have a chance to use that word, but I chose it because of the Oktoberfest advertising I've seen all over.

Ok we've finally made it to Z!  One of the song's I selected makes me think of Animal singing from the Muppets. But I hope You've enjoyed our alphabet challenge.

Golly I'm writing in circles tonight, I'm sorry. Just a bit tired.

Zombie Hunter - We're Never Going To Find Them

Zwei - Movie Star

Zendaya - Replay

ZombieSuckers - Graveyard A Go Go

Music Monday : Y

Y is actually a really hard letter to find music for.  Yes I'm back on the ball, almost. I'm trying at least. I know todays post is going to be going up a bit late. But that's going to happen now and then. And if you've been with is for a while you know that I almost always pop back up again. It just takes me a bit to re organize.

The word of the week is :

yenta : gossip or busybody

I know it may seem like a weird word. But with the way my week has gone so far (and it IS only Monday)I really think it is an appropriate word. Anyways, here's the music for the week, inspired by and brought to you by artists of the letter Y.

Your Favorite Martian - Club Villain

Yusuf - My People

The Young Friends - I won't Break Your Heart

Yuna - Live Your Life

The Yardbirds - Got Love if You Want It

Stretched a bit Thin

There's been a lot of things going on of late, one of which is that there is no internet at my home currently. I've yet to decide on a new provider and to be honest I'm not in a hurry to do so. It was a bit expensive, and compared to how much use I actually made of my computer in the past few months I can't really justify the bill that I was paying.

On the other hand I've been participating in a couple of craft swaps, but I won't be able to ship them out on time because of the way my work schedule is currently. I feel bad about that. But I've only got so much time in a day, and when you compare the times that the post office is open to the hours I'm at work currently for the next few days it's dismal. I am at work longer than they are open (or in transit to work blah)

I'm kinda pleased with my packages though, even though I'm a little worried as to if my partners will be as happy with them. But there is only so much that I can do.

My youngest brother got married this past friday. He and his new wife are actually in florida for their honeymoon. I was a bit worried when people said there was a hurricane coming through there.

Work is work. My feet hurt a lot, and I feel like there is a lot that I'm falling behind on because I let the internet go at home. It's hard to keep up with the newest trends and some of the less caustic news without it. But in a way it is a double edged sword. I'm not seeing as much of the bad news which should be helping me to feel less stressed.

but it is not.

anyway. i'm sorry i haven't been writing much and i will be trying to get things sorted soon. I'm just stretched really thin right now.

What's on Screen? Hurricane Bianca

I haven't really been doing as many book or movie reviews because I haven't had the time (or ability) to watch a movie or read a book lately. I've been very busy and my eyes haven't liked to look at my computer or tv screen. So needless to say for a while yet movie theatres are going to be out too.

But I did finally get to watch a movie I've been wanting to watch since a good friend mentioned it to me. Hurricane Bianca.


To be perfectly honest I wasn't sure what to expect when the movie started. But I will say that after having seen the whole thing, I'm looking forward to watching the sequel when I have a chance. Currently I'm not sure when that will be. But I do know that looking forward to more of a similar kind, means I enjoyed it.

Not suitable for younger children due to language. Teens could watch it I think, though as with many films with various content, parental discretion is advised. I found it enjoyable. But I'm an adult, and I have my own set of standards for films.

Music Monday : X

I hate to say it, but for my personal collection X is a rather slim letter. Maybe some of you know some bands starting with an X that I don't? Feel free to leave some recommendations if you feel so inclined. Because I had a hard time prising these gems out of my library.

The letter of the day as you have guessed by now is X. So let's see what the word of the week is.

Xenomania : inordinate attachment to foreign thing

I'm not sure if any of you will have a chance to use this word during your daily lives. But right now.. I feel like it is an interesting word to throw out there. I hope you have a magical week.

Xandria - Ravenheart

X Ambassadors - Nervous

XP8 - Muv Your Dolly

XV - Best Wishes
