Christmas Song "Titles" (a musical quiz for the holidays)

Christmas Song "Titles"

Maybe you've seen these alternate Christmas song titles. This is an online oldie - but a goodie.

"Monarchial Trio"? - too easy, of course you know that one.

Some New Christmas Music Shirts

I created some new Christmas music shirts at my Spreadshirt CHM Music Stuff store today.

Red, green, or gold bass and treble on red and green shirts. Check it out.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, and have a happy Thanksgiving! Not all in the world is black T-shirts and selling. Wishing you a great day. Have good, safe travel - if you are traveling.

I'll be "Coming 'Round the Mountain" (okay, taking the 91 winding around/through the Santa Ana Mountains...). Yes, I actually do find that tune in my head when I travel to my family in Corona (Inland Empire, Riverside County).

Right now "Turkey in the Straw" is creeping into my head. And, of course, that old standard Thanksgiving hymn "We Gather Together."

For some Thanksgiving goodies visit the "Fun Page" (aka the Weekly Wazzup Page) on my website - find the Thanksgiving section in its Table of Contents.

BLACK T-Shirts!! (With music graphics, of course)

Okay, I'm perhaps a little overexcited.

Black T-shirts have arrived to CafePress. This means that black T-shirts have arrived to Music Stuff & More @ There already are a variety of very nice shirts available.

You can readily find treble clef and a handful of bass clef black T-shirts on the "Storefront", in the "Music Merchandise" area, and in the "Treble Clef" area within "Music Merchandise." There's also a sampling in "Sales & Features."

Expect many, many more black music shirts to come from me.

Note, also, that Spreadshirt is having a Black Friday promotion regarding their (and my) black T-shirts:

Yes, I will likely have this form on this blog's sidebar, perhaps on my website and stores, in the future.

All kinds of interesting old music - lots of it! - sheet music, as well as old Edison recordings. (I'm listening to the "Hungarian Rag" played by a band on an old Edison recording as I type. Available as Real Audio and .wav - playing right now on my Windows Media Player.)

Yes, check this listing out! From sir, with love [McCartney Tour] From sir, with love

I enjoyed this review over my breakfast. Good old Paul!

Here's the cool black T-shirt...

...coming soon to...

CHM Design Store - Music Stuff & More

There's a similar treble clef in "metallic" dusty dark pink and in "metallic" dusty aqua on black shirts waiting in the back in beta.

PS: Note that little old hacker me finally got my mitts on this .jpg.

Black is in beta @ CafePress!

I've already created a black T-shirt with a "silver" treble clef on it. Looks real cool. I'd show it to you, but I haven't been able to save or link to the image. A beta thing, I'm sure.

Anyway, this is very promising. Plans are that I'll be converting as many of my music graphics which'll look cool on black as I can. Plus make some new white graphics. Then maybe some more graphics - entirely new ones - which'll look good on black.

Stay tuned. You know I'll let you know right away once the black music shirts are out of beta.

Pete Fountain Plans Comeback After Katrina

Pete Fountain Plans Comeback After Katrina - Yahoo! News

"...I have two of my best clarinets so I'm OK. I can still toot," said Pete Fountain in this article.

It's good that this New Orleans classic is still around, and while beat up from hurricanes, is still fine.
