Sunrise, Surgery, and Spam
Thursday, 12 February 2004 10:58 AM MST
Last week while visiting at my folks' place in Hurricane, where my sister and her two boys were visiting from Colorado (my parents were in the Provo, Utah area following my dad's recent back surgery), I was chatting with her, asking for music recoommendations and looking her suggestions up on Apple's iTunes music service.
On a whim, I looked up Norah Jones since I have her Come Away With Me CD and love it. So imagine my delight when a new single, Sunrise from her new Feels Like Home CD was available for download at 99 cents.
It was a no-brainer. Clikkity-click! It was downloading. A moment later I was listening. Very nice! No, extremely nice! I'm gonna add that CD to my Amazon.com wish list right now.
I've made an MP3 audio file of three brief excerpts from the single. I believe that this is legal under copyright fair-use for the purpose of critical commentary (such as my above comments). If you like it, please buy it!priesthood blessing from two members of the church at the hospital.
Now that he's back home in Hurricane, he's got a long, slow recuperation ahead. I hope it goes well, so he can at last have some relief from the constant pain that he's suffered through for the past few years.
Unsolicited, unwanted e-mail, "spam", is starting to arrive at my address, so I'm going to retire it. So if you want my new address, look around this web site a bit. It's not too hard to find. I'm sad to have to lose what was a fun word-play e-mail address. I loved being able to say, "Just e-mail me at Aaron Gifford dot com." "What's your e-mail address there?" "I told you." Okay, I love puns, so maybe you'd have to too to appreciate it.
