[music |Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy - Andrews Sisters]

Darn! I was going to do this cool LJ meme where it posts everyone's user pics, but unfortunately it stopped at the N's... so I'll have to try that one a different day when the computer's behaving better.

So instead... I guess you get another historical fact!

The violinist and composer Tartini dreamed that he handed his violin to the Devil and listened while the Devil played a sonata of astonishing beuaty. When he tried to reproduce the sonata on awakning, he could only remember one repeated trill. He used this trill as his theme in his "Trillo del Diavolo".

- When was your last nightmare? Mine was last night. Someone electrocuted my septuplets. *boggles*

And here's the Andrews Sister's doing Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Awesomeness. :)


( Eta the link. Whoops. LOL There ya go!)

Voice of the Wood - probably for older kid, young kid might find it boring - hey there's a play based on it! awesome.

if you like "profound" children's books, I also loved The Mountains of Tibet, though that's about reincarnation from a buddhist standpoint lol is your sister very christian?

and The Dream Eater (reading rainbow approved!) is REALLY great. this could go younger or older. As you can see, I had a lot of asian influenced books cause my dad is chinese american.

and lastly...because...i loooove giving book recommendations, some fun frivolous kids books:

One Kitten for Kim

Fancy Nancy

another favorite of mine was Fanny McFancy; A Passion for Fashion, but its out of print and on amazon it's 50 bucks. LOL its not THAT great!
