God my kid is smart
For the last two days, I've been struggling trying to post photos on Blogger and today Eva says "why don't you upload them in Bolt and then imbed the html?" Duh!
And she even did it for me so I could go exercise (first time back after the wee back issues and man do I need it). Plus she put in a little code so that when you point the cursor at the picture a tag comes up. I asked her where she learned that and got the eye-roll and "it's common knowledge" response.
Kids. Can't live with em, can't shoot 'em...
Songs aren't imbedding properly in Blogger right now, so here are the direct links to some songs which you could have heard at the Calgary Folk Festival this summer. Sorry for making you do the extra click, but I'd love to hear your opinions:
1. Oh, Alberta - Elliott Brood [from Tin Type] - (a happy goofy song - I challenge you not to smile)
-
2. Second Son - Elliott Brood [from Ambassador] - (a much darker song, the characteristic Elliott Brood Death Country sound)
-
3. Streets of Anxiety - Dubblestandart [from Are You Experienced] - (nice piece of dub, very cool groove)

Eva is sassy smart - how can you NOT be proud!

Currently waiting for Bolt to load up some Elliott Brood for me...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Yeah, about that, Michelle. I seem to still be waiting for the songs to load too. Sorry if they never played for you.
What's going on with Blogger these days?

Love love love Elliott Brood. Brilliant. I shall never again have to search for my new music, for Barbara Bruederlin lays it at my feet :D

Allison said...

LOL Kees...so true. Life was so quiet before I found Barbara's blog ;)

Becky said...

Don't know what's going on with blogger, I'm having the same problem! Argh.
Eva's suggestion was really helpful, I'm going to do the whole imbedding the HTML (just with Flickr). Tell her I say thanks :) (and thank you for blogging it, too :D)

haha, kids! kinda nice when they get so smart, kinda not :)

Barbara said...

You'll have to have her come to TO and show me how one day . It's no use telling me....
When I saw the song title Oh Alberta I thought you meant the song Bowser and Blue sing...
I was suprised Elliott Brood was doing a funny song.. But it ain't the same song.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh Kees, you are making me blush! But I love love love Elliott Brood too. In fact, I'm at the honeymoon stage with them - I cannot stop listening to them! Help me! (they are cute too)

Oh Allison - you are too much, you goof!

I hope it works for you Becky. I'll pass along your message to the wise one.

You know it, Maureen. It's a double-edged sword with smart kids.

Do Bowser and Blue have a song called Oh Alberta too, Barbara W? They are a little different from Elliott Brood though, methinks.

You're not doing too badly in the new music stakes yourself Allison! With yer Kooks and yer Cribs and the like. Gonna have to get me some Bolt action...

Barbara they ARE cute, it's all about the short-sleeved shirt and tie combo. Yummy ;-)

Yeah, it's that Mormon-chic look they've got happening there, Kees. It is totally hot.
