Day 36

Day 36

So, my story today has nothing to do with my photo of the day.

Today, or should I say this evening, has been one of those days where I ended up getting lost in the internet.  Have you ever had one of those days?  You know, your simply checking your timeline on Facebook, and wind up clicking on a video link.  You notice an interesting looking link on the right side of the page, and click to see what that’s about.  Next thing you know, you’ve been watching videos for hours, and have found 2 new bands that you now love.  :)

That’s kinda what happened to me.  Tonight, I have been exposed to Lindsey Sterling and Pentatonix.  WOW!  First of all, what amazing musicians!  Secondly, what amazingly different styles of music they are.

Lindsey Sterling (http://www.lindseystirling.com/) is a classically trained violinist, who plays with electronic sounds and dances with reckless abandonment.  She is fan-tas-tic.  I will absolutely be getting some of her music as soon as possible.

Pentatonix (http://ptxofficial.com/) is a group of out-of-this-world vocal musicians, who harmonize without using instruments, only their voices.  Double wow.  These guys are crazy good, and again, I want their stuff ASAP.  :)

After doing some basic research on these two artists, I came to realize that they both got their start on TV talent shows.  Who knew!?  Lindsey Sterling was on America’s Got Talent, and Pentatonix won The Sing-Off.  Lucky me, today I was introduced to them, and can now enjoy the music that they create.  :)

There may be a lot of crap (for lack of a better word) on the internet nowadays, but it’s days like today that I can really appreciate the good ole World Wide Web.  Social media may be crippling our youth from actual social interactions, but with it, we can also share things of great inspiration and beauty.  We can expose people to music/art/ideas that they possibly never would have witnessed without the internet.  For that, I am grateful for technology and the connections that can be made.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to share MY love of photography to “strangers”.  Although, even with that, I beginning to make new friends and share memories.

 

Got something to say? Let me know!
