I just found out through a random link click, that one of my favorite artists is behind the theme song for "Dollhouse". I love the theme song and have found it to be very haunting and now I know why! Jonatha Brooke, formerly of "The Story" wrote it with a collaborator. There's also a full version of the song, with lyrics out there on Viddler.

Eons ago, [livejournal.com profile] alecto23 and I went to a folk concert down in King of Prussia and saw "The Story" play and I met Jonatha for about 2 minutes in the hallway, pointed her to the bathroom so she could go change. I was in high school then and too nervous to really say anything, but she was very nice and polite for those few minutes. One of her songs "So Much Mine" is a longstanding favorite of mine and perfectly captures that feeling of being a parent having to constantly let go.

So far ... really eclectic. Like, even more than they usually are. But still recognizably Enigma.

Okay, so this is dorky, but I was having trouble re-installing the soundcard drivers on my machine after wiping it and re-installing windows.

Well today, randomly after running a couple more updates, the little update window flashed saying "Hai, guess what, new hardware detected!" and it finally picked up my sound card and ran the auto-update for it and now I can haz sound again.

I was getting really really really damn tired of the very loud system beep that was firing off every time I got an IM, a new email, or something failed. All the same beep. ALl very loud and no way to turn it down 'cos the sound controls were kaput.

Buh bai system beep. Hello again to nice soft, subtle chimes. Ahhhh. No more assault on the ears and I can play Taiwanese and Korean pop music to my heart's content once more to keep my energy up at work.

YouTube is a wonderful for tracking down nostalgia:

From my Junior Year Abroad in Geneva, 1994-1995

Saturday Night - Whigfield
La Macarena - Los Del Rio (all Spanish version)
Rhythm of the Night - Corona
What Is Love? - Haddaway
Sing Hallelujah - Dr. Alban
Black Betty - Ram Jam
Cotton Eye Joe - RedNex
Scatman - Scatman John
Send Me An Angel - Real Life
I Like to Move It - Reel 2 Real
Boom Boom - The Outhere Brothers
Boom Shake the Room - DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

There were a bunch of French Hip Hop and Rap songs too but I never did catch the names of the tunes.



No wonder I was in such good shape that year! Dancing from 11pm to 5am to these beats.
Sous Le Vent
Garou/Celine Dion


And if you think that I got scared
Not true

I'm giving my heart a vacation
A little break

And if you think that I was wrong,
Wait

Breathe in a little, the golden breeze
That pushes me onward

Pretend like I went off to sea
Got out the big sail
And slipped under the wind

Pretend I left the Earth
Found my star
Followed it for a moment
Under the wind

And if you think that it's over
Never

It's just a pause, a break
After dangers

If you think I'm forgetting you
Listen

Open your body to the night winds
Close your eyes
And

Pretend like I went off to sea
Got out the big sail
And slipped under the wind

Pretend I left the Earth
Found my star
Followed it for a moment
Under the wind


And if you think that it's over
Never
It's just a pause, a break
After dangers

Pretend like I went off to sea
Got out the big sail
And slipped under the wind

(Slipped under the wind)

Pretend I left the Earth
Found my star
Followed it for a moment

(Followed it for a moment)

Pretend like I went off to sea
Got out the big sail
And slipped under the wind

(Slipped under the wind)

Pretend I left the Earth
Found my star
Followed it for a moment

(Followed it for a moment)

Under the wind

Sumer is icumen in, lhude sing cuccu
Groweth sed and bleweth med and springth the wude nu
Awe bleteth after lomb, lhouth after calue cu
Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth, murie sing cuccu
Well singse thu cuccu, Ne swik thu naver nu
Sing cuccu, nu....
