Jonathan Coulton

Wow. I'm having fun online lately. As you know, I've ventured into YouTube. But it's still a little overwhelming. I stick to just a few "directors" videos. One is a woman on a weight-loss journey. I came in way late (day 101). She's posts an update every day, even when she'd rather not. Very committed. She's built quite a following, just by being herself (well, her-youtube-self. you know what i'm talking about, right bloggers?)

One of her trademarks is signing off by saying, "So far so good." That's relevant if you watch today's update - a music video. Just music and text.

That's not really the point of this entry. However, the music in her video leads us to an incredible performer and his website: JONATHAN COULTON

His site has a bunch of free downloads and some for just a buck (with no lock). He encourages us to use and share his music for non-commercial purposes. He, like most of us, abides by the Creative Commons rights.

Already I'm hooked on his music. He's got a soulful sound. Deep. Beautiful. Plus, anyone who can cover a Rick Springfield song and make it sound current, is a hero in my book. I was a huuuuuge RS fan in the 80s. For those who remember the song Don't Talk To Strangers, let me know what you think of Jonathan Coulton's version. (click link then scroll to Thing A Week II).

Great stuff. Thanks for the link Rachael.
