FINALLY!!! Clips from my recital! Woo!

Instead of the normal writing exercise, I am going to post the videos from my recital!!! Yay!! :) Aren't you all excited? haha

I went to my mom's house and transferred the footage over onto my SanDisk 8GB USB drive, and voila! Just a little cutting, and I've got YouTube videos!

Anyways, without further ado...

My recital!

The first clip has the following songs:
Und ob die Wolke - Der Freischütz (Carl Maria von Weber)
Flow My Tears - John Dowland
In the mornin' - Charles Ives

The second clip has the following songs:
Piangete - Giacomo Carissimi
Almen se non poss'io - Vincenzo Bellini

The third clip has the following songs:
Le Secret - Gabriel Fauré
Les Berceaux - Gabriel Fauré
Die Stadt - Franz Schubert

The fourth and final clip has the following songs:
Liebesbotschaft - Franz Schubert
Moments in the Woods - Into the Woods (Stephen Sondheim)

And there we have it! I hope you liked it. I know I had fun doing it.

I would hire you and pay you at million dollars (if I had a million dollars). Full objectivety here.

Oh, Mom. You are a silly lady. You're pretty neat, too.

And I'd TOTALLY take you up on the million bucks. Ah, what I would do with that money...

Wow. And I thought you just sat around doing writing exercises. Very nice. I just saw Into the Woods for the first time not too long ago - good songs and great lyrics. I've become quite a fan of opera in recent years too.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

Things That Are Yellow:
