pogo music Recently, we've all kind of been obsessing with Pogo Music Productions around here. It all started with Mary Poppins. Freida heard some kids talking about the movie at camp one day, and came home asking to watch Mary Poppins "the funny babysitter". I didn't really have any interest in letting her watch that film yet (she's not really up to feature length films, she's seen maybe two Disney classics and didn't even make it through those without getting bored halfway in), so I thought I'd show her some clips of "the funny babysitter". While searching around a bit online for a good clip, what jumped out at me immediately was this Mary Poppins "remix". It kept coming up, so I realized it must be some kind of new fad or internet phenomenon, and I was totally blown by the creativity! PogoMix is basically some dude who is a downright genius when it comes to capturing and mixing sounds, and we've been moving to his music all month long! We turn them up in the afternoon after Freida comes home from camp, and we all go nuts dancing to the beats and laughing from the "mix" sounds. It was particularly awesome to show Freida how the mixing is done - she's such a little sponge, and her creativity radar is spot-on. She loved the concept of capturing sounds (perhaps this will be her newest career choice - after Tattoo Designer, and Grove Performer :)), and was fascinated by the fact that you can make music using anything! She asked a bajillion questions about it, so I let her watch the video About Pogo. If you and your brood are into music, or you have a son or daughter interested in DJ/mixing/producing definitely introduce them to the sounds of Pogo.

Here's the Mary Poppins mix:


Here's another one of my favorites:

While we're on the subject of good music, last week when Freida was heading out the door ahead of me I told her I just had to grab my coffee from the kitchen and she ever-unexpectedly belted out "I will wait, I will wait for youuu!" on perfect key as if on cue. :) Therefore, I think she definitely needs (read: I really want) one of these darling Lumineers prints from The Little Illustrator. How cute?

you're my sweetheart print

liz green bad medicine video I've been sitting for hours at the computer these past few days, catching up on boring work mostly, but I've been working on some fun projects as well. In any case, music is always the only way I get through work days. And good music is even better. But! When the good music comes along with an insanely mind-blowing music video? Well, that's just the kicker.

I've had a few songs on repeat for a while (I'm totally one of those annoying people who can listen to the same track for eons of time before moving on), and when I finally went looking for some creative inspiration and checked out their official music videos - well, I literally have no words for these artistic animated stop-motion magical creations. Prepare to be blown.
