Day 130: The Limit To Your Love by Feist

28 Sep

Hey guys, if this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

The fall is here (even though the weather outside is deceptively hot). I will update the blog with more pictures once the leaves turn, but for right now, fall is creeping into my thoughts.

What does it mean? It means that my fall music playlist is taken down from the closet, brushed off a bit, and put onto my iPod. And what’s the best music for fall? Folk.

Well, for me folk is good for all times of the year, but it has a strange effect on me in the autumn. I start to feel the cold breeze (hypothetically, of course, since it was like 80 degrees here today), I see the leaves change color and fall to the ground, I smell the pumpkin spice, and I watch the campus come to life. It’s really beautiful.

So when I’m feeling in the fall-mood, I like to start off with some Feist. Her voice is soothing, and, while it’s not exactly folk music, it reminds me of the season.

Today, I picked “The Limit To Your Love” by Feist, not because of the topic, but because it reminds me of the autumn feeling. It’s dark and light, sweet and smooth, and it always makes me want to walk slower and take it all in.

There is no limit to my love for this song (I know, I had to). So hopefully you’ll enjoy “The Limit To Your Love” by Feist as much as I do.

P.S. if you’ve never heard her CD The Reminder, check it out. It’s very very good!

Day 58: Tree Bells

17 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Yesterday, I had a feature blog about Liz and Reed Fish and all of their artwork. If you didn’t get to check it out, you can either scroll down one post and check it out, or you can be lazy and click the link here!

Anyways, after talking to them about their 10 Second Moment projects, I decided to try my own! So today’s blogpost is a bit of a follow up and a piece of creativity I tried to do myself.

So check out my one and only 10 second moment! (and check out the Fishes 10 second moments here)

(this video was taken at the Seattle Center, next to the Seattle Repertory Theater. Taken from the flier:

” Windfall: Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo, June 15th to September 15th, 2010. A temporary artwork celebrates the Theater Commons. More than 1,000 cast-iron wind chimes fill the Theater Commons, inviting you to slow down, enter and explore the space. Like the adjacent Donnelly Gardens, Windfall honors the contributions of late civic arts leader Peter Donnelly. Intended to heighten the perception of wind as an invisible force, this artwork acoustically tracks the changing spatial form and velocity of wind as it travels across the expanded site.”

If you live in Seattle, take a look at it. It’s gorgeous and sounds sweet.)
