#MirthMusicMon – John Williams Is The Man – #mondayblogs

Yesterday on the classical music station that my car radio is always on, and they were¬† playing a recent concert by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra that was filled with music themes. We came in late, but they were performing some John Williams pieces as the finale, and it was awesome, because John Williams. And then I remembered this medley, which some guys I was at uni with performed at a uni choral competition and won first prize. It’s pretty impressive.

And now please indulge me in my favourite John Williams theme. I haven’t actually ever sat down and watched an Indiana Jones movie, but they do play the theme as you go down the Scenic Railway. It’s funny because you and everyone else are walking around the boardwalks at the bottom and you’re all humming it. It’s quite the earworm.

Our Mirth and Music Monday linky can be found over here. You are more than welcome to join in! I’m heading off now to get ready for work tomorrow. See you later!

#MirthMusicMon – A Double Dose of Jurassic Park – #mondayblogs

I have to apologise for the drive-by nature of this post; it’s nearly 9pm, but I’ve had my mum staying and for a while was really stuck for something to post for today. But then thankfully, the recommended videos on YouTube inspired me.

John¬†Williams’ music is always beautiful, and the Jurassic Park theme is no different, as this video by The Piano Guys, made to celebrate the release of the new Jurassic World movie, attests.

And then I remembered the first episode of a web series I backed on Kickstarter a few years ago. This is the first episode. Spot my name in the third column on the second screen of donor names, once you have giggled at the episode itself.

And there are another 12 or something episodes!

Join us for Mirth and Music Monday over here. I’m going to go now and get ready for bed, but I’ll see you all again soon.
