I have been voraciously consuming the creative output of everyone else for well over a year now and I thought it was about time I found a way to make a contribution of my own. I'm not much of a writer, and I really can't draw, so I come bearing podfic. I'll keep updating this entry as I add more to the collection.

Take a listen. New ones at the top.Collapse )

In case anybody is following, I got accepted to film school. I actually heard a couple of weeks ago, which was earlier than I was expecting so it took me by surprise. Since then my mind has been buzzing off its tracks with all the things to get done between now and then, on top of all the regular life I have going on already. I am excited and happy and kind of overwhelmed, but mostly excited and happy. It'll be fun. (And you can remind me that I said that next December when I've hit finals and am not having any fun at all.)

Spring is in the air, but not enough for the Cherry Blossoms yet. And our time in DC now has an end date. So Blue and I went out to get some more icons.

Stop #5: Supreme Court, Folger Theater, Library of CongressCollapse )

I got an email yesterday that said my application is complete. So I am officially maybe going to go back to school to get an MFA. If I get accepted I'm definitely going anyway, though I have about 8 weeks until I hear. I was on a long drive yesterday also which gave plenty of time for my mind to wander about it as well.

Here"s what I came up with:Collapse )

I'm about to enter the land of family, children, food, and chaos, so I think realistically this is the last one I'll manage.

Santa Gets Around was sung by Emily when she was 6. I'm fairly certain there's spots in there where she wasn't sure what she was talking about and just sang it phonetically. (What 6 year old needs to know about cholesterol?)

The first Christmas song Jim wrote was Santa Be Good. Mike sang it when he was 10 years old. And then 4 years later Dan sang it when he was 13. I find it interesting what a difference 3 years of age can bring. Mike's is very much a little boy song, while Dan has a bit of an Elvis thing going.

These are in honor of the record breaking warmth we're having today.

Christmas Snow. Dan from the 2003 album. Actually these are all from that album. I like them all, but this might be my favorite album over all.


http://home.comcast.net/~kholodak/Christmas/05%20Cold%20Cold%20Christmas.mp3
Cold Cold Christmas. Dan again, age 10. Someone else liked to a sad and lonely Christmas song today. Something about the season, there's no in between. Everyone is either joyful or depressed.

Cowboy Christmas. Mike age 11. I'm not really familiar with cowboy music myself, but I played it for a friend once who rattled off some artist that she thought it sounded like. Hopefully that makes it "traditional" rather than stolen. We'll say inspired by anyway.

I'm going to run out of days before I run out of songs so I'll give you two this time.


http://home.comcast.net/~kholodak/Christmas/02%20Been%20Gone%20So%20Long%201.mp3
Been Gone So Long is a duet with Jim and Dan. I guess we're all storytellers in our family. But I will say I don't know quite where the inspiration for this one came from. I think Dan was 13 here. It was the last year he sang. We lost him after his voice changed.


http://home.comcast.net/~kholodak/Christmas/02%20Its%20a%20Glorious%20Day.mp3
It's a Glorious Day is for the more religiously inclined. It features Emily with a bit of Grace attempting the backing. They would have been 10 and 4. Actually, it sounds like Emily's friend Kendal might be in there too rather than Emily harmonizing with herself. Much more up beat anyway.

I'm not good at this daily thing am I?

Here's a fun one from 2004 that includes a few guest parts. Mike is singing lead, and Jim is Santa, Grace is the happy elf, and I'm the cranky elf.

There's a hanky warning on this one. It always makes me tear up. I'm not quite sure where it came from as I don't think Jim knows anybody who served. It's sung by Emily and her friend Kendal in 2005.

I missed yesterday so I'll give you two today.

http://home.comcast.net/~kholodak/Christmas/08%20Little%20Rasta%20Boy.mp3
Little Rasta Boy Jim didn't exactly write. More like arranged I guess. Mike, who's singing, was going through a reggae phase. Or maybe it wasn't a phase, maybe he's still into it. I'm not sure as he's in college now so I don't see him often. This was from 2003 so Mike would have been 11 here.

http://home.comcast.net/~kholodak/Christmas/07%20Santa%20Cothes.mp3
Santa Clothes is from 2005 which would make Dan 12 when he was singing this. He was getting old enough to have a bit of style and not just sing the notes. (Yes there's a typo in the file name, we're not a family of good spellers.)
