That may be the measure of our lives." - Toni Morrison

"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

love story meets viva la vida

"Love Story"? sure. i enjoy taylor swift as much as the next person.
but "Viva La Vida"?* that's it. sold. i'm definitely in.

While I'm not a fan of Jon Schmidt's music at all {if i have to hear "Waterfall" played one more time on any on-campus piano i might kick whatever is closest to me} this video is actually pretty cool.



*editor's note:
i personally love the album viva la vida. not just the song, but the album in its entirety. i also think that once people stop thinking that it's "not cool" to like coldplay, they'll realize how good an album it is too.

I saw this video several months ago and loved it. We especially love the cello at our house.

What people think it's not cool to like coldplay? Let me just set them straight now... If lovin' them is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I saw this video a few months back and loved it! Now I'm in my bedroom singing T-Swizzle. :-P

Beautiful!

Hey Alyssa, it's been a while. I'm not sure where I've been, really. What's going on with you?

Oh heavens! I absolutely love it. It makes me miss playing the piano more than ever. John's arrangements like this one are his best I think.
