Music: Mormons, Ivers, Hitchcock, Weird Al, Secret Sisters

Plastic Discs, Upon Which Is A Thin Layer of Metal Unto Which Special Digital Signals Are Recorded And Then Translated, Using Special Equipment, Into Audible Musical Notes, and Singing Human Voices, And Amplified Through Special Equipment For Your Hearing Pleasure.

O Holy Night by Jackie Evancho. I bought this? Maybe this is the current "Little girl with "voice of an angel'" kid. Two discs.

The Book of Mormon by Original Broadway Cast. Includes a thick booklet full of lyrics and photos that does not want to STAY IN THE DANG CASE!

Codes and Keys by Death Cab For Cutie. Death Cab For Cutie was recently awarded the prestigious Stupidest Band Name Ever award.

Jagjaguwaa by Bon Iver. This dude was in some magazine, and on tv, getting shilled by Michael Perry, promoted through media in Madison. I have not idea who he is.

Propellor Time by Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3. I like Hitchcock's work.

The King is Dead by The Decemberists. Is this a hipster band? I think it might be. You know, ironic or "vintage" t-shirts, PBR beer, aviator sunglasses, sideburns... Oh, maybe not. Glenn, regular library patron and music fan, just now expressed interest.

Alpocalypse by Weird Al Yankovic. One CD and one DVD. Parodies of Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and a Doors parody about Craigslist.

The Secret Sisters by The Secret Sisters. Two gals I heard on the CBC one day. One of them tried out at a performers showcase in Nashville and was invited back. She brought her sister along for the second performance. The first song is the best. The rest are well done but are covers of tunes you've already heard a bunch of times.

Now That's What I call Music!: 38 featuring [Who? What? Does no one own a dictionary?]


Split Second by Catherine Coulter. 419 pages.

Happy Birthday by Danielle Steel [supposedly]. Queen... gracious... arbiter... divorce... penthouse... hairdressers... bone structure... truth... prospect... consumes... thirty... football... memorable... whack... upside... brimming... insight... itself... always.

Large Print

When Passion Rules by Johanna Lindsey. Half-naked dude in tight pants on the cover.
