Belated Music Monday – Peer Gynt and Op.77 3rd Movement

Instead of two separate posts about music, I’ll simply do one with two videos.

For this week I bring you two orchestral pieces. One is very relaxing and light while the other is, as my friend put it, “winner music.”

Peer Gynt – Morning by Edvard Grieg

Music Monday: Carol of the Bells, Dubstep Style

Seeing as Christmas is in less than a week, I thought it was fitting to post a Christmas/Holiday-themed song. Enjoy.

Bo Burnham’s Rant

Bo Burnham is one of my favorite comedic artists. His raps/songs are so smart, laced with puns and rhymes. Below is one of my favorites, simply titled “Rant.” I know I’ve posted this before, but lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Bo Burnham during my commute, and I wanted to post this again.

Warning: Not for the swear-averse or extremely religious folks.

Note that the categories at the top of the blog have been shortened so they can all fit.

Random posts will be publish… at random, of course!

Relaxing/Ambient Music

I’ve made a new playlist on Youtube with Relaxing/Ambient music. A lot of it is electronic, but it’d the type of stuff I like to listen to before bed sometimes. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4234ED1D44F98BA7.

Here’s one of the songs. It’s actually from the game Mass Effect.

If you like this type of music, I also suggest checking out www.di.fm. The Space Dreams station is really chill.

Android App of the Week: TinyShark

Android App of the Week is back! This week we take a look at TinyShark.

GrooveShark is a massively popular online music streaming service (competing with Spotify) that has tons of songs that you can listen to for free. Pony up a little money and you can remove ads and add some features. Pony up a little more and you can listen to GrooveShark on your iOS or Android device.

Now GrooveShark is a great service, but it’s not worth paying for. Many songs that I’ve searched for aren’t available, song quality isn’t uniform across the site, some songs are only snippets of the whole song, and other songs contain ads at the beginning or end. So what to do when you want to listen to one of your GrooveShark playlists on the go? The answer: TinyShark.
