Th--Music: Something That Happened

A song by Brooke Murphy entitled Something That Happened is the subject of my blog today. Created as an entry for the ever popular Minneapolis-based Immersion Composition Society Lodge "Bullet Lodge", this song screams coolness and color. Well thought out, put together well, it for sure has my ears stuck to it.

It is a song about something that happened. Exactly what happened, I dunno. Perhaps you can decifer the words and come up with an explanation. But, as for now, and for me, it is a song about color. I see colors, shapes, textures when I listen to the song. I love the vocals, the drums, how they smack once in a while, and the almost grainy flavor of the piece.

It also has a mucusy, anatomical feeling to it.

Enjoy.

Something That Happened


Lyrics:
Once there were green enzymes in the distance
They were tackling brown proteins and off-white carbohydrates
My pink eyes could see them through the black binoculars
That I held with my yellow hand
And red stomach acid melted down on them
This was the beginning of the end

Computer App: Hoekey

Hoekey is a Windows application that allows you to create custom global hotkeys for your computer. The neat thing is it allows you to use the windows button in said hotkeys. For example pressing + opens up winamp.

Comes in handy.
