New Zealand Earthquake

You have by now seen all the devastation in New Zealand from their most recent earthquake. It is so sad.....keep saying prayers for them! But to me, this pic shows how incredibly strong this earthquake was.....I mean I can see buildings and houses coming down but to bend railroad tracks like this....that is crazy:

The Iron Lady

Meryl Streep is starring in a new movie, "The Iron Lady", about Margaret Thatcher. There is talk about how accurate it is but the only thing I wanted to show here is how Meryl Streep can transform herself....she is awesome! Would love to see the movie if it is accurate but in this political world....who knows....I will do a wait and see on the actual are the pic comparisons....Margaret Thatcher first:

Now Meryl....obviously looking a little younger but I didn't realize it was her...she is good!

XM Radio

I have an XM radio in my car. My fave stations are The Spectrum and Alt Nation. I have heard so many incredible bands that are not played on terrestrial radio. It is so sad that terrestial is so taken over by the record companies that original artists can't be heard. I just think the satellite option is incredible! There is so much great music out there that most people don't get to hear. I decided I would start throwing out some music that you might not have heard. I will do it in video format but don't worry about the video so much as hearing the music! I am throwing out songs I like to work out to and songs that just make me relax and music that just makes me happy and my toes tap! I hope you are a couple of my new faves....

So stuck on Florence and the is the "Dog Days Are Over".....just makes me want to dance.....loading this on the ipod for the starts out slow, but just wait...I also don't understand the video but is great!

Read about Sarah Jaffe on the Whitney Matheson's "Pop Candy" blog on the USA Today website. Love the blog and she is really into new artists. Fell in love with this song, "Clementine"....

Ray his voice and this song, "For the Summer". It is so peaceful...kind of James Taylor like but his voice is cooler....

And here is his other song that I am loving off his new album, "Beg, Borrow or Steal":

And then there are The Avett Brothers.....this is the first song I heard, "A Head Full of Doubt":

and this one,"I and Love and You":
