OK, here’s the situation (my parents went away on a weeks vacation…Will Smith) Ha ha, I have no idea how that just happened, but it really did, please tell me I’m not the only old person who actually remembers when that song came out.
Actually the real situation is that I am kind of a slacker and haven’t blogged in a wee bit, partly because we moved to the Seattle area this month. Issaquah to be exact. The whole moving thing is never fun, but we are starting to get back in our normal life groove and I actually had time to blog.
I am happy to be writing again.
Our new house
I wrote about Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears 2 years ago, or so (if you followed that link I just made I hope you are listening to “The Zero Light” right now, what a fabulous song!). Since then they have made another album called “The Flight of the Knife.” I never wrote anything about it because I had just blogged about them, but we have been listening to that album at least once every day for weeks now.
Our house essentially turns into the stage for a musical when they are playing; singing, dancing and overall cheerfulness. I don’t think I want to try and describe the music, you can figure it out yourself, and I hope you do because it has several of the best characteristics of different types and ages of music all in one, however it DEMANDS and DESERVES a second listen.
The kids favorite song is “Purple Rocket” because 1) its so awesome 2) we are reading a book called “Georges Cosmic Treasure Hunt” by Stephen Hawkings and his daughter Lucy, that is all about space and rockets n’ stuff. This book has “blasted” Bryan Scary into our daily music fun. I very much recommend this book and the one before it to any parent looking for something to read their kids this summer.
I somewhat obsessively check Bryan Scary’s concert dates hoping so very badly to see them live someday, so far they seem to stick to the east coast, but I’m comforted by the fact that Seattle offers me a much better chance than Boise ever did.
