Music video: Chris Hadfield singing with the Barenaked Ladies

I’m sure you know who Chris Hadfield is – the famous Canadian astronaut, and maybe you even know of the Canadian singing group The Barenaked Ladies – a male rock group so named to attract attention.

Below is a video of them all singing together while Chris Hadfield was still in Space. They also have a choir as backup. I hope you enjoy this.

If you were a member of a singing group what name would you choose to attract attention?

Thanks for reading – and listening.  And Creative Musings!  🙂

Fun stuff to do on the Internet, aka Procrastination activities

Writers. 

Writers write.

But writers don’t always only write. Writers often procrastinate.

I wanted something different – but brief – for my NaBloPoMo post today, and in my search I found some things on the Net that would be great for those times of procrastinating. Call it character or theme research. 🙂  I will add them to my Writers’ Helps page later.

Check these out:

http://www.howtofoldashirt.net/  <—-  This is a great thing, but I have tried it and although it looks very simple I haven’t fully mastered it yet. I think my brain can’t or won’t think that way, but I will keep working on it. This set of instructions seems a little better than the one I was using.

Today I was so tired, didn’t get any writing done on my NaNo novel. I did get one fun story idea drafted out for PiBoIdMo, though. That makes idea #18 for day 12.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
