It's been a wonderful week digging up memories. Thinking back to all of the blogs and other Internet web sites I tracked 10 years ago – I don't know if I'm still in attendance at any but this one. Thanks for the memories, SBG & WGOM!
I'll end on a contemplative note. I grew up a bando and detested the choir. Vocal musicians just seemed lazy to me at the time. Over the years I've learned that there are some special things only choirs can do. "Sleep" is one of those special things. I've listened to few more beautiful pieces of music.
"Sleep" is here sung by a massive choir in orchestra hall, conducted by Whitacre himself.

Watched this for the first time in years and just had to share it on a Saturday. My friend shared this with me years ago. It brings back memories of all the laughs we've shared; all the humor he has put in front of me over the years. Now he's a pastor – by way of The Brave New Workshop.
It's a crazy life.

Man did I used to be a Letterman fan. My brother first introduced Dave to me when I was really young. I didn't really know why he was so great, but I knew he was. If that makes sense. I really should be watching some of his final episodes.
I think I watched this cover of "Masters of War" as it was originally broadcast. I'm no Pearl Jam fanboy, but remember being greatly affected by this performance in 2004.

Back in the oughts I furiously consumed movies. I loved filmmaking and cinematography. I'd even watch extremely depressing fair like Dancer in the Dark. This is one of the many beautiful sections of that movie, and basically a music video.

When considering a theme for my guest stint as WGOM DJ I couldn't help but go back to my own blog from years ago. About the time I found the old SBG haunt (what, a decade ago?), I was blogging like a twenty-something. One thing I liked to do every week was share a video that had grabbed my attention.
So here it is – bjhess guest DJ week. No theme. Just videos inspired by or from the archive of bjhess.com/blog.
