Autechre (pron. awe-tek-er) are hands-down one of my fave bands. Of all the wicked songs I could share, I chose this one because of the amazing clip. It’s hectic and brilliant, and you simply must watch:

Survived that?! Buy some!

If you don’t know Antony and The Johnsons, you are about to thank me.

Now go buy an album. I recommend starting with The Crying Light, but if live music is your thing, go with Cut The World. Both are Ahhhh-mazing.
Do you love you some Antony?
Any sound-alike recommendations for me pls?


Music for my birthday

Last year my parents gave me $100 cash for my birthday. AWESOME! The card read along the lines of “buy yourself something you love, like music.” So I did. One hundred dollars worth of music by the magnificent Clark. I bought some yummy vinyl, a cd and mp3s. It felt so indulgent, and fantastic! The downloads of course provided instant yayness. The hard copies fulfilled my penchant for delayed gratification.
Here’s a subdued Clark song with a tops video: check it out!

Oh and I am very excited there’s a new album coming!

Any recommendations for me party people?! :)

H-E-L-P T-W-I-L!

Given I blog about libraries and learning, I must praise and thank This Week in Libraries, and especially now. This Week in Libraries (TWIL) is a vital professional development resource for library workers who want to learn, engage and get excited about our profession (i.e. everyone). TWIL brings educative and inspiring conversations with passionate presenters and guest professionals to our screens, whenever we choose to watch, for free! Innovation is always on the menu; served with passion, pride and collaboration. As Jan Holmquist rightly declares, TWIL is “our favourite library TV show”. And TWIL needs our help.

To keep the show going in 2012, a thankful crew are crowd-funding via the Help This Week in Libraries Tumblr. There is a Help TWIL Facebook page that you should like, and follow the love on twitter by searching for #helptwil.

I donated to say a huge Thank You and to help keep this oh-so-valuable resource on the air. You should too!
