Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last picture. You have no idea how happy inside they make me. <3

I've been incredibly bored all day today. I'm really art-ed out, and will be for a few more days, yet. I don't want to make a video because I'm too lazy to grab clips. No one is online to talk to, and my brother has co-opted the Xbox.

So I've mostly been spending the day with my piano. I want to make a video of me playing it for posterity, but I don't want it to be Moonlight Sonata or Lacrimosa because I've played them to death. I'd do "Genius Next Door", but it's really, really not in my vocal range, and I'd want to do it justice because it's one of my favorite songs. That leaves the Dresden Dolls songs. The funny thing about these books is that my favorite songs on CD are rarely my favorite to play; I used to hate "Perfect Fit", but I play it just about every time I sit down at a piano bench these days.

Just try to guess what my favorite song to play from Yes, Virginia is.

Of course it had to be "First Orgasm". Oh, Amanda Palmer and the ridiculous things you make me enjoy singing. I always hated the piano part of that song until I learned to play it. It also doesn't hurt that it's ridiculously easy. I'll probably just end up recording "Boston", though; I kind of love it and it's also got that easy thing going for it. Or maybe "The Sheep Song", even though I don't like it so much when it's me playing that one. Go figure.

Or maybe I'll just end up recording my Astronaut cover on my ukulele, and all evidence of my mad piano skillz will fade into obscurity.
