Weekend Music: More Leonard Cohen

Video

Hard to believe I’ve been blogging music videos as long as I have and I’ve not posted this one. Not my favorite Cohen tune, but it’s fun, and it fits here.

I’m skipping the Friday 56 this week because I don’t have time to visit, and I don’t join linkups unless I can do the visits. You still have time to drop a link on the Geek and Greet thread at the top of the page. I’m not going to close the thread, but 6 pm Eastern today is the deadline to get in on the party and be sure you get a visit back from me.

We’re going to be a little lighter than usual on the content for a couple of weeks. We have some things in the works, but April was exhausting, most of the series we started the year with have finished their runs, and a lot of our contributors have personal projects and offline things going on. So you’ll see a few more reblogs here than is our normal custom for the next little while.

I’m looking to add a new contributor (or two) here over the next couple of months. This isn’t the official advertisement, but if you’ve got something you think would be a good fit here, hit me up. I must be familiar enough with you to trust you with dashboard access, and you must be able to deliver finished posts with at least one shareable image.

Happy Weekend!

Weekend Music: A to Z Open Thread #4 (The Last)

Video

We’ve featured Minneapolis folk/rock group Reina del Cid and the Cidizens on Sundays all month long and hosted a discussion thread. This seems a good one to end the thing on.

This is an open Blogging A to Z thread. You can use it to do any or all of the following.

  • Share your best A to Z post from the previous week or one for a friend. (Only one of your own or for a friend, please.)
  • Share your best finds from the A to Z list. (No more than two of these per week, please.)
  • Chatter about how the challenge is going for you, or about A to Z in general. Ask questions and give one another advice. If you’ve survived previous A to Z Challenges, tell us a war story.

This video comes with a trigger warning, because the song deals with abuse.

Weekend Music: A to Z Open Thread #1

Video

We don’t go a weekend without a music video, no matter what else we’re doing, so I’m gonna try this just to see what happens. I’ve got one of these scheduled to run every Sunday for the next five weeks. We’re featuring Minneapolis folk/rock group Reina del Cid and the Cidizens on Sundays all month long and hosting a discussion thread.

This week’s featured A to Z Blogger: Not a Punk Rocker

Finds of the week

  1. 26 Ways To Die in Medieval Hungary. Best. Theme. Evah!
  2. A Creative Mind is doing a Tolkien theme, and you know how I feel about some Tolkien. She’s also #100 on the list — which was Just Gene’O’s number until I bowed out with that blog. So, if I HAD done a Tolkien theme and been #100 on the list, we would be back-to-back Tolkien bloggers who never met until we did the A to Z Challenge about the same thing in the same year. How cool is that?
