They Might Be Giants

Good Music

TODAY is TMBG Awareness Day in which I write about  Uruguay.  Okay, I’m not going to write about Uruguay, but they did, or they wrote a song called the Alphabet of Nations and it lists Uruguay.

I have grown up with the two Johns of They Might Be Giants, and for several years now, they’ve also been writing albums for my kids. We go way back to “Ana Ng” and “don’t let’s start” songs.

Enjoy exploring They Might Be Giants, pull up a video or two, buy an album, see a show. You may find that you’ve loved them for a long time already.

TMBG release four new songs on iTunes and on theymightbegiants.com for mp3 AND flac downloads.

Alphabet of nations!
Algeria, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Dominica, Egypt, France, The Gambia
Hungary, Iran, Japan, Kazakhstan, Libya and Mongolia
Norway, Oman, Pakistan
Qatar, Russia, Suriname
Turkey, Uruguay, Vietnam
West Xylophone, Yemen, Zimbabwe

Help! Annie

Red1, enters fourth grade and gets word that they’re putting on the musical “Annie Jr.” in the spring. She’s been in the school chorus for a year and is excited to try out. But she’s not interested in Annie’s part. She’s all about the character actors! (Ye-haw! Me, too.)

So we’re putting Annie DVDs in our Netflix cue and looking at the YouTube clips to see which parts she wants to think about. She knows all about Carol Burnett and loved the few scenes we’ve seen already. Bernadette Peters may be a new inspiration for her too.

She rolls her eyes and says that all the girls are going to being singing, “Tomorrow, tomorrow…” and just then, Red2 starts singing, “Yesterday…” And that was it. We began pulling up the list of songs and matching them all together.

An Annie/Beatles mashup. Listening to all of the songs from the musical and the Beatles album, “Help!” is going to be great fun. How do they come together? 🙂 We’ll see. It’s a great project for Google Wave too.

This week we had the displeasure of hearing that Google is planning to dump Google Wave, but we’ll keep using it until they close their doors. Perhaps, by sharing our projects like this more people will start using this amazing stuff Google pops out. (What if email was invented today?)

Our Wave for working on the project. – If you are interested in participating, comment on this post, but don’t pass up seeing how awesome group work with Google Wave can be.

Testing out embedding this wave below.  This may totally slow your viewing experience down but let’s try it out.

{Waves aren’t that happy on iPads, either.}

It’s sad that the comic strip Little Orphan Annie is closing down, but all good things…
