Talkin' About My Girl
Skylar is spending the afternoon with me in my office at work. I'm reading. She's making art. I've had my work computer's seven-gigabyte music library playing in shuffle mode the whole time. As is typical for her, she has been in a music-enhanced space while working on her project. Turn off the tunes and she'd be more restless and demanding. Leave them playing and she drifts blissfully on the sonic currents. Over the course of the afternoon we've heard Eric Satie, Astrud Gilberto, Richard Buckner, Camper Van Beethoven and The Carpenters, among others. But she didn't comment on any of the selections until a song from The Stooges' album Fun House came on. "Nice music, dad!," she said, looking up and nodding along to the beat. That's my girl.

too cool

I knew that girl had good taste. Mark's a trip when it comes to music. Thanks to Tio Chris sending the faux-pod, there's a pretty decent variety of tunes at hand in the car. Mark seems to dig the Bar Feeders (when he asks to hear "something fast fast!"), also some instrumental Hi-Fives tunes, which he referred to as "kiddo music". His favorite song, though, is probably "Octopus's Garden". Then again, we're talking about a kid who doesn't want to miss a minute of Lawrence Welk on PBS on Saturdays. He's going to get enough crap music forced into his eardrums by me in the future, inadvertently or not. I'm stoked he has such an open mind about music right now.
