Truth, fiction, lies, wonder and a blue whale.

I subscribe to information from TED, a great source for presentations that inspire, teach, entertain and make you think. Some days ago I got a link to “Mac Barnett: Why a good book is a secret door” and I watched it today. It’s for kids of all ages. Mac talks about truth, fiction, lies, wonder and a blue whale. There’s even a Venn diagram…

Emmylou Harris in Six White Cadillacs

I am a fan of Emmylou Harris on Facebook which had a link to Emmylou Harris: Six White Cadillacs on YouTube. It’s a great song (see video below) and after watching it several times I bought the song at iTunes.

I found First Listen: Emmylou Harris, ‘Hard Bargain’, free streaming on NPR of the entire CD, through Timber and Steel.

Free listening is great marketing. I had no intention to buy the CD but after listening several times to the NPR stream of it I ended up buying five more songs (six in all). That would not have happened could I not listen to them first.
