Long Winter, and Tribute Videos Rule

Posted by Peder on 19 February 2010

Last night I listened to the Musicheads podcast from this week. At the end they discussed the question, “What one song helps you get through the lo-o-o-n-n-n-g-g-g-g-g winter?” Steve Seel‘s answer was “Glósóli” by Sigur Rós, which is a very good song for loving winter. Here it is:

Glósóli (Glowing sole) by Sigur Rós

So I listened to it last night because I like Sigur Rós and that song made me think of another song, but I couldn’t place exactly which one; “Glósóli” planted an earworm. That song turned out to be:

Love You All by Cloud Cult

This was the final cut from an awesome 2008 album called Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-Partying Through Tornadoes) which has a lot of other awesome songs including:

Journey of the Featherless by Cloud Cult

The Musicheads also talked about the new Yeasayer album, which is good, and I want to include this quick in-studio performance video:

Madder Red by Yeasayer

Their Minneapolis show at the end of April will be very warming indeed. Until then winter continues.

Flickr Memories: How Do You Cook Corndogs?

I just spent a fair bit of time uploading a bunch of old pics to my Flickr account.  I encourage you to take a look and comment on any photos you find interesting!

It took a lot longer than I anticipated, but also gave me the chance to listen to the following great albums:

  • MGMT, “Oracular Spectacular”
  • Born Ruffians, “Red, Yellow & Blue”
  • Kings of Leon, “Only By The Night”
  • The Tough Alliance, “New Chance”
  • The Notwist, “Neon Golden”

Good things come to those who wait.

Peder with a D Presents: The Summer Palace … In Winter

Posted by Peder on 8 December 2008

Summer PalaceIt’s been almost two years now since I was last in China, but this is one of my favorite pictures from that trip. I’m overlooking some sort of pagoda at the Summer Palace, a few miles northwest of Beijing.

This was actually the second time I had visited this site, both happening in the months of January – 2004 and 2007, respectively. Ironically, I’ve never been to the Summer Palace during the summer. (But the compound is so much easier to navigate when you can cross the frozen lake.) I took my jacket off for this photo and my smile hides the fact that it was about 15 degrees Fahrenheit, but that crisp air makes for good photography.

I traveled with a buddy of mine, depicted below. Good times.

San Diego Beach House

I just learned that this photo had been short-listed for inclusion in the 6th edition of the Schmap San Diego Guide. Unfortunately I didn’t respond in time but it may still make the 7th edition. We’ll see.

This is also the first blog post I’ve made by sending a pic directly from my Flickr account, so here’s to synchronized web presences. Yay!
