There’s a line between music to write by and music that requires your full attention, however. I’ve been listening to the latter kind of music for three hours. I kept a You-Tube tab open as I read emails first and then as I started writing my blog post. I could manage the reading part of my emails, but not without going back to You-Tube to see the awesome videos that go with this music. It’s very hard trying to finish this blog without constantly clicking that tab. Oh no, I hear Cello Wars, a funny video with awesome music. I might as well give up writing now and embed the code for The Piano Guys:
Cello Wars (Star Wars Parody) Lightsaber Duel – Steven Sharp Nelson
If for some reason you can’t play the video, click here. As of this writing, The Piano Guys have 31 songs posted with amazing locations filmed for many. Some also have vocalists.
I love this music. There’s not a single song I didn’t like, so I ended up ordering their first CD. Maybe if I play the music from CD, knowing there’s no video to watch at the same time, I’ll have a slight chance of getting some writing done. Not likely, but oh well. If the music takes all my attention, at least I know hearing it will make me smarter, not to mention happy.
I ask you, how could I not share such awesomeness with my followers as part of my 500 follower giveaway? You can subscribe to the Piano Guys channel and score some great music every time you get on the computer even if you don’t win the box of books and chocolate shown here, here, and here. You can scroll down through my January and late December posts and see the same pictures. Note that a few of the books pictured were taken by my 400 follower winner. But I went back for more chocolate so that’s all still available.
Now for the Rafflecopter form. I love Rafflecopter, so I’m also including their own giveaway in this post. Theirs has way better prizes but not such great odds. Still, you could win an ipad2 or kindle fire!*edit Sorry. but that contest is over. So you might as well enter my monthly books and chocolate contest through the tab at the top of this blog. That one has great odds and a daily tweet option that can really stack your chances, with a drawing on the 11th of each month.
Now it’s time to link to Kathy of Iamareadernotawriter. We all love her book giveaway blog hops.
Did you open a tab to The Piano Guys? If so, you’ve got great entertainment while you go blog hopping! Have fun!
