a trip to the clouds

kidbits No Comments »

we recently made a quick trip up to grandfather mountain. it was a bit cloudy in the morning so there wasn’t a clear view of the valley below but fortunately the “clouds” made it *extra special* for our five year old. he thought it was *so cool* to be “in the clouds!!!!”. he definitely won’t be forgetting the trip to “the clouds” anytime soon.

the Rembrandts

Finally someone put together a decent compilation of songs by the Rembrandts. The fine folks over at Rhino Records did a good deed and released The Rembrandts - Greatest Hits a couple months ago. personally i think it’s mistitled. in truth they really only had *two* big hits: Just the Way it Is Baby and the career-killer I’ll Be There for You (Friends theme song). so the compilation should have been titled “Greatest should have been-Hits” or simply “the Best of”.

anyway, the CD is a great reminder of this duo’s ability to write hook-filled power pop songs chock full of Everly Brothers-type vocal harmonies. it’s highly unlikely Phil Solem and Danny Wilde will ever produce another mega-hit single (due to the current state of pop music these days) but i’m still hoping they will continue to have the opportunity to record and release more of these smartly written guitar-based pop songs.

Greatest Hits Tracklist:
1. Hold On To Something (Great Buildings)
2. Maybe It’s You (Great Buildings)
3. Just The Way It Is, Baby
4. Someone
5. Save Me
6. New King
7. If Not For Misery
8. Follow You Down
9. Johnny Have You Seen Her?
10. Rolling Down The Hill
11. I’ll Be There For You
12. Don’t Hide Your Love
13. April 29
14. End Of The Beginning
15. This House Is Not A Home
16. Shakespeare’s Tragedy
17. Long Walk Back
18. Summertime
19. Too Late
20. Lost Together

another site update - i had to migrate over all the photos to a new section (media gallery) since the php gallery script that i was utilizing here previously wasn’t working properly.  most likely due to our webhost upgrading the server to PHP version 5.  all members please make note of the the new URL  just in case you have the old URL bookmarked. thanks.

well, the kids are back at it. the *fall soccer league*, that is. fun, fun, fun. it’s sorta strange calling it “fall soccer” when it’s still August and it’s 95 degrees outside. anyway, i guess we’ll be busy every saturday morning (games for our two boys) as well as thursday late afternoons (with practice sessions), from now until the end of october. whew.

recent upgrade…

general No Comments »

hello all.  i recently had the chance to upgrade the website content management system to 1.4.0sr5 and while i was at it, i reconfigured the site to allow the general public to view portions of the site and still keep family-related news and photos private.  previously the whole site was just members only.  So now with this new configuration, folks all over the internet will be able to enjoy my earth-shattering thoughts on all things mundane and non-essential while keeping family related matters safely among friends and family.  the only thing i’m not too happy with is the generic template i’m using at the moment.  apparently there aren’t a lot of eye-catching templates available with this new version of the CMS i currently have here on this site.  no biggie.  hopefully new (and more interesting) templates will be released soon.
