Susan’s Playlists June 24 – 27, 2013: Rush the Resistance

resistance we are all artists nowWho knew that the resistance could be so much fun?  Nice to know that those uncomfortable feelings just mean we’re on the right track.

So, for our video selections this week, first, the Song of the Week (a.k.a. A Private Gathering of the Silly Creatures, and quite possibly the best music video I’ve seen all year), Do It Anyway by Ben Folds Five. (In another life, I will play piano like this and get to dance with Fraggles.)

A lovely accoustic version of Lyle Lovett’s You Can’t Resist It — complete with cello!  Mmm-hmm.

And, Switchfoot’s This Is Your Life — a song that I got from my mentor, teacher and friend, Helen Terry.

This week, a happy, belated, Firedance birthday to John and a welcome to Charlottesville Nia to my longest Portlandia friend, Zan!

Next week, I’ll be away — hiking in the mountains. All my ACAC classes, including on July 4 will be covered by the amazing Nia Team, so check the ACAC Schedule page for the details. Happy 4th and I’ll see you the following week.

EnJOY, every-body!
xoxo
Susan
