This one goes out to my new little nephew!


So this is the same song by Elton John (also from Moulin Rouge). I've been listening to a bit of this artist's work and I've got to say, she's pretty good. That and once in a while it's nice to hear someone you've never heard before.

A Harry Potter Summer

No one's going to see this for a few days, at least, and that will probably be only Heidi. Oh well. I just thought I'd tell ya about what I'm currently doing this summer.

I'm preparing for the awesomeness that is the FINAL HARRY POTTER MOVIE.

Yeah, so I'm going to reread the series, rewatch the movies, rewatch the musical, and replay the games. I am currently beginning the fourth book right now, so that's fun. Once all this madness is over with, I'll be able to get back to reading books non-Potter related. So August is definitely going to be a fun time.

So Heidi, whachya doin'? Or Katie, for that matter?

'My Soul' by Jacob Wylde




Jacob Wylde from Sound Safari on Vimeo.


Do you guys remember that remix of mary poppins? No, not the scary mary one. The one that takes bits of speech throughout the movie and makes it into techno music. Pretty cool. Well, it was made by a guy called Pogo. And I found the above video (along with more of his cool techno mixes) on his website: www.pogomix.net
You likey?

I WANT YOU TO POST


Hey guys! It's been a while, huh? Well, I have good news: I found my camera! This means I will be able to post pictures of my summer adventures for you guys to see! :D Since I have scads of free time now, I'll be posting more here, and I'd appreciate it if you'd check back bi-weekly and maybe even post about your own summer adventures?

Suggestions: Lilly, I'd love to hear about the books you've been reading and how summer school goes;
Katie, you should tell us about taking care of Lola and Farley;
Kelly, you are great at finding cool new music and funny/lovely internet stuffs. Please share!

SECOND NOTE: If you go on Amy's facebook page, there is no link to the study abroad blog she is writing for, so I went through the business of finding it: http://blog.studyabroad.wisc.edu/summer-2011 Check it out!
