Finally Something Personal?

And now to finally prove to the world that yes, Sampanthera does in fact play the guitar. I wrote this one a while ago now about a street name in Windsor and after watching the movie Once. It helped to inspire the song a lot actually. I was aiming to record a demo CD this past summer, however because of work less then half of the songs were completed. This being one of my personal favs was chosen on a crisp (perhaps slightly partied out after morning catch my drift) day where I pranced about Kingston with finger puppets and my camcorder to make a (hopefully) semi-entertaining video to accompany the music. There may be nothing better then filming nothing in a city and discovering what you've been missing out on. Here's the puzzle pieces put together. And no I did not in fact construct that snowdoll. I stumbled upon a hobo's makeshift shelter and I witnessed it for the first time along with my rolling film. I didn't realize that snow could show me such a raw, basic human emotion. Just to have companionship. Just something to love.

Anywho, it's sloppy. It's supposed to be. It was made for the sake of prancing with my mittens. Hope you enjoy it!

New Musical Goodness

Welcome to twentyten everybody! It is my great pleasure to introduce to you the new playlist, filled with a random assortment of indie, folk, and alternative. These are some of my newer favs and some older ones which I haven't talked about yet. Unfortunately the html code doesn't completely fit the website so I have it playing on random (hint, if you'd like a bit more control, you can find the pop-out screen button on the bottom which will bring it out to a new window).

There's a few artists who I've recently spoke about, such as Ani DiFranco, Jets Overhead and...actually that may be it right now.

Anywhozzer! Take a sneak peak for what's coming up next!
