  1. Vienna Teng on the iTunes Music Store

    Adam just told me that Vienna Teng‘s CD Waking Hour is now available on Apple’s iTunes Music Store (direct link for iTunes users). Waking Hour is a really great album – highly recommended. Congratulations Vienna! If you get a chance to see her perform live, you should really do so.

  2. Shiny New Strings…

    I put new strings on my guitar this evening. It was the first time I’d changed the stings in several years… Years ago, I bought a couple dozen sets of D’Addario strings that I love, but they are in a box… I think… somewhere. So I put on a set of light Dean Markley strings…

  3. Played it ’til my fingers bled…

  6. A Musical Interlude

    Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a house concert at Eric’s. I’ve been listening to Vienna Teng‘s music for several months but this was my first opportunity to see her live. Sometimes when you get to hear a musician live, their performance doesn’t stack up well against their recordings. Vienna Teng was even…

  7. Random

    I’m on the lookout for really good step-by-step tutorials that describe how to install and configure PHP and MySQL on a Windows box. I’m looking for a suitable counterpart to these great Mac OS X "how to"s (PHP, MySQL). I heard this song Sunday morning on KFOG‘s acoustic sunrise show. I was driving along thinking…
