Looking for Some Recommended Music?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Music is very important to me. I listen to music for at least 8-9 hours a day (all day while working, 1 hour in the car a day). It has been awhile since I posted anything on the podcasts I subscribe to via iTunes and I wanted to update the list incase you were curious. I generally listen to upbeat trance/vocal trance/dj mixes which gets me pumped up to do just about any task so if you are looking for something different or what I would consider worthwhile – here is what I am listening to (do a search in...

Ocarina

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

A friend of mine recently told me I need to buy this “really cool iPhone application” called Ocarina…so no questions asked…I purchsed it for $.99. From the creator’s web site: Ocarina is the first true musical instrument created for the iPhone. Both experts and beginners will be amazed by this innovative player. Ocarina is sensitive to your breath, touch and movements, making it even more versatile than the original. Unlike other musical applications, there are no pre-compiled riffs so musicians will find unlimited opportunities for self-expression. Still confused? Check this out: My guess is my sister will go on tour... Read More » Read more

Music and My Life

I listen to music almost all day, everyday. Yesterday I grabbed the latest NIN album from: http://theslip.nin.com and it made me think about how the music stage is really evolving. Read more

What Am I Listening To These Days?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

People that know me, know I like to listen to my music with the volume cranked up, that I work better with music in the background, and that I am passionate about great music. For the last few years, I have really gotten into vocal trance (dance music that is a bit more edgy/hard than what you would hear on the radio). I listen to a lot of great podcasts and wanted to let others out there (like my sister) know that there is some great music (free) out there. Mondo Sessions (Check out June 2007 – this is my...

Jappler Recommends: Amy Winehouse

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

I have been in a music rut for awhile now – I have not changed the CDs in my car’s CD changer for multiple weeks, not because I am lazy, but because I cannot think of anything I really want to listen to while driving. I generally listen to either some sort of electronica/DJ music (think Carl Cox or Corderoy) or classic rock of some sorts. A few days ago I briefly switched on the radio and heard something that really grabbed my attention: Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good” song which is very R&B/soul sounding. It is a...

Random Points of Interest

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have been completely swamped with work for the last week, but I wanted to share some random points of interest that I have stumbled upon over the last few days. I sat down to relax after a long day of coding to watch a great show on the History Channel called: Hooked: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way Opium, Morphine, and Heroin. This was filled with awesome tidbits of information like: The Chinese first got hooked on smoking tobacco, then they added some opium to the tobacco…then they got hooked on smoking opium. Before this, eating little... Read More » Read more

DJ GT vs. Project C

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I listen to music all day long. I think it helps me work and stay focused and excited on my projects. I cannot speak highly enough about the DJ GT vs. Project C mixes from Generation Trance. If you like dance/electronica/trance music at all make sure you check out a few of the DJ GT vs. Project C mixes available. My favorites: Voices Of Summer 2005: Bliss and Breeze.

House

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

House home. House music. My parents or anyone that knew me prior to 1996 can tell you…I like my music and I like my music loud. (1996? yeah…that is when I was forced to keep my music volume lower because of neighbor complaints). Finally…almost 10 years later I am able to crank the volume up again. No more immediate neighbors banging on walls or telling the RA on duty. My choice of music now? Corderoy. I have not enjoyed a DJ as much as I enjoy Corderoy since Paul Oakenfold and Carl Cox. You can download some of Corderoy’s mixes... Read More » Read more

Depeche Mode: Playing the Angel

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

There are a handful of bands/singers that I absolutely love (U2, Madonna, NIN, Paul Oakenfold, and of course Depeche Mode) and buying their albums right away is a must. Depeche Mode will always be one of my favorite bands of all times. So many of my memories growing up can easily be recounted depending on the Depeche Mode album I was listening to at the time. Seeing Depeche Mode live was my first “real” concert and thanks to a great friend and her parents that were willing to drive us three hours one way to see them…it will always be...

New Favorite DJ: Project C

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have a ton of CDs, mp3, etc on my computer, but these days my favorite music to listen is located on an internet radio station: Vocal Trance from DI.FM. I have a few favorite radio stations bookmarked in iTunes, but nothing has been more satisfying than this Vocal Trance station for the last few weeks. The reason: DJ Project C. I love his mixes. So much that I tracked down some of the songs, bought them via the iTunes music store, and have gone to Generation Trance to check out some of his other mixes. If you have any... Read More » Read more
