Weigh-in Week 4

OMG! Wow, I really liked what I saw tonight! I am down 3.8 pounds compared to last week. I have been working really hard - so for those of you on any kind of diet/exercise plan: do not give up.

This is a 2.3% weight loss in a week. I am not sure I am going to see big results next week. I just hope the weight doesn't creep back up - since it's going to be that time of the month. :(

Swedes do it again!

Besides Volvos, Ikea, and Jose Gonzales, Sweden delivered another wonder: Koop Islands by Koop. I've fallen in love with this album. Absolutely beautiful. Their orchestrated sound is achieved by slowly putting together thousands of small clips from records. It's Nu-Jazz and it's lovely. Vocals on this album are provided by singers I love, such as Ane Brun and Yukimi Nagano. You just gotta YouTube them.
