And now for another milestone here at the Laptop Sessions — my first Barenaked Ladies music video! This is a track from their 2008 album Snacktime. The opening track, “7 8 9” was an instant favorite of mine — even though it is children’s music, this is some of the best new music of the year and definitely deserves a listen.  Being the Barenaked Ladies fan I am, I actually bought the book that accompanies this disc.  The book is essentially an enlarged version of what can be found in the CD booklet, but it’s a really great children’s book to have on the shelf.  And illustrated by BnL’s own Kevin Hearn!  As if that wasn’t enough, the “7 8 9” music video is simply excellent, with a hilarious twist ending…  You have to search YouTube videos for it and watch it!

You may wonder why tonight’s written portion of this music blog post is is so brief. Well, that’s because I sat down just before dinner to work on my session and other http://LaptopSessions.com work. This would have been great until… the ants invaded. One by one, Jim and I found ants throughout the kitchen, basement, and then found them all around the front corner of the yard. Many paper towels were lost in action this evening…

See you next session, hopefully when I’m not so terribly tired!!
