Day 25: Your favorite song from 2010 (so far)

Since this album wasn't released in the US until 2010, it counts in my book.

Day 24: Your favorite cover song.

Though it dates back to the 1870's, Leadbelly did several versions in the 1940's. I'm sure there are earlier recordings, but we'll use this as the starting point.

Day 2: A song that makes you cry



I also like this version with Tracy Chapman. Her voice is at the other end of the spectrum from Kate Bush, but it still works

Day 1. Your favorite song.



And two of my favorite covers



In May, I will be going to Korea. I want to come home with great photos of a beautiful country and people.

At this point in time, I have a crappy little kodak point and shoot that has served me well, but has never taken the photos I see in my mind. This is where you come in.

I need a new camera. I'm willing to save up for it.

What would you recommend for someone who wants to and is willing to learn about photography?

I have my eye on this:Canon PowerShot SX201S

Is this a good one?

Any pointers, protips, brand recommendations - any help at all you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Oh, books on photography? Any good ones?

Thanks!

Quiet night.

I've got my heating pad, a big ass bottle of pain reliever, two discs of Battlestar Galactica, and a purring cat to keep me company.

The boy has a migraine, so no conversation tonight.

I've heard rumors that there is going to be a remake of Suspiria happening sometime in the near future. I think Hollywood needs to leave well enough alone.

This looks and feels a lot like Suspiria. And oddly,I am actually interested in seeing it.

I love your _____ (fill in the blank).

Tell my needy @$$ what you love about me and then repost this and see what people love about you.
