Ode To An Astronaut

Some songs...Inspire.

They inspire thought, imagination, emotion, all of those things that we prize so strongly, and find so difficult to actually feel.

Here's a little sample of what makes me think, imagine, and, sometimes, cry.

Music these days has, without a doubt, made the leap onto the internet wholeheartedly. while there are still radio shows that spread the music love, it seems that more and more that new music is being spread around using music blogs and podcasts.

Obviously this is an example of a music blogs, but there are many more out there. The beauty of a music blog is that there are so many--anybody can create one, and all it takes is a little searching to find the one that suits your taste in music. For example, the music blog that i'm faithful to is one based in canada called I Heart Music. i find that the author consistently posts music that fits with my taste and i can pretty thoroughly depend on him to give both a good background of the band and a thorough description of the sound of the CD and song.

As for podcasts, i was recently on one called "My Favorite Podcast", and the podcast that i tend to pander to is called the CBC Radio 3 Podcast.

However, to each his own, and you should all find the music blogs and podcasts that fit your tastes. That, after all, is the beauty of the internet.

If you find any good music blogs or podcasts that you find to be consistently good, let me know as i'm always on the search for new music.
