Jack Conte, part 2

My favorite Jack Conte videosong-Impression

I sing and hum this to myself all day long. Plus, there's the random flailing arms of enthusiasm at the end of the vid, which never fails to make me smile.

(I finally rememberd how to embed a video. Time away from my blog had an adverse effect of my skills, man.)

Jack Conte

I discovered Jack Conte, internet musician, several weeks ago and I am completely in love with his music and his videos on youtube. Plus, he's incredibly adorable, with his flailing arms of enthusiasm.

His videosongs are made in a room in his house and he plays every single instrument used in the song, including a teeny tiny paino that I'm sure has some kind of official name, which is not teeny-tiny piano. Not only do you get to watch him make music, there's occasionally a little random add-on at the end of the song.

On his youtube acocunt, he's posted the 2 rules for his videosongs:

1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice)
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds)

He's phenomenal and you can find him here.

He's also got a myspace page and he has a music store where you can buy his mp3s. I recommend the big red "Buy Everything" button-all of the vid songs and his two EPs for $15. It's a fantastic deal.

Go. Listen. Watch. Buy.

Look what I just found! Gale will be performing in a play in Los Angeles from January 15 to Febuary 21.

What an awesome birthday present it would be if I could fly there and see the play. Alas, it will never happen, so I'm going to have to count on the Gale fans on my journal flists to keep me updated.

Oh blog...

How I've missed you! Can you belive that I was so busy that I actually forgot you were here? I know, hard to believe, right?

So now I will try to update you more frequently and with some of my new interests:

Leverage, and the awesomeness that is Christian Kane and Aldis Hodge.


Sons of Anarchy, which just finished it's second season.


and my current obsession and the object of all of fangirl attention-Supernatural


And lastly, my current musical obsession-TOOL


How I have not managed to burn a hole in my 10,000 Days CD is a mystery.

So that's where I've been and what I've been doing.
