Watch the music

After this experience I have tried to be careful about watching videos on the computer, but Alice caught me a month or two back and since then she pops in occasionally to ask to “watch the music”. I would list some favorites but as far as I can tell if there’s music and motion, Alice likes it. She definitely prefers bouncy, upbeat tunes and ones that have people dancing, so this one is usually a good bet —

Lately, though, I have been using my iTunes player which has the groovy visualizations that make pretty patterns along with the music and Alice likes that even better than music videos. She’ll sit on my lap for tens of minutes watching the patterns and listening to the music (sometimes Charles does too). The only drawback is that I have to explain what each different color is and whether the current display is “outer space” or “in a whale”. The current chart is

BlackSpace
RedFire
BlueWater
GreenQuantum flux
YellowSun

Any suggestions for “pink” and “brown” would be appreciated.

Could pink be cotton candy? brown could be chocolate? OK, so I think I am sensing a trend.…I’d better get something to eat!

The video has been yanked for copyright violation, presumably, but it was Safety Dance.
