I was supposed to go see one of my favorite bands tonight down at Bowery Ballroom. The band is called Midlake. Midlake is an Indie rock band of classical jazz musicians. I don’t really know how to describe their sound aside from the fact that it’s orchestral and epic. Especially their most recent CD, The Courage of Others. I have never seen them in concert.
This is one of my favorite songs (“Roscoe”):
It’s so relaxing.
Unfotunately this afternoon I got a little feverish and dizzy so I opted to stay home. Bobby went anyway and my brother is going. I asked for a phone call during one of the good songs. I’m enjoying myself on the couch reading one of my books (Before Green Gables).
Exercise today was something new. This morning (before I got sick) I did a video on Netflix called Dance Off the Inches: Calorie Blasting Party. It’s 45 minutes and it’s a nice little cardio routine. I’ve done it before but I haven’t in a few months. I also walked 2 miles. This is less exercise than I used to do, but way more than I have been doing lately. I really like exercise at times; other times I just want to be a lump. Maybe it depends on the season? Winters are depressing for me so I become more sedentary… then as it gets nicer out I just want to move all day long.
Does your mood change with the season? What about your exercise routine? or…
What’s your favorite band? (Mine is Guster. I went on a cruise with them last year.)
