Saturday Song-suasion 61: Brad McBride

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

In case you haven’t read, I’m taking a break this month. Although, I unplugged myself from the world beyond my computer, I did think before hand about my lovelies and threw together a whole month of music for your enjoyment.

With Halloween only days away, I felt it my obligation to put a little creep in today’s music. Instead of a featured artist, I present you with the imaginative YouTube creations by Brad McBride.

The first video is a 2-hour haunted virtual fireplace and thunderstorm,

and the second is a haunting 8-hour thunderstorm!


You gotta love this guy’s sense of humor and fantastic sound effects. You may want to check out his library of sound effects for sale at VirtualDreamer.com. This is the place to visit if you like soundscapes!

Thank you for making me a part of your weekend. I hope you enjoyed your visit. In fact, I hope you enjoyed it so much that you cannot wait to tell your friends. Go ahead, hit the share (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) button! You know you wanna. 😉

Have a songsational Saturday!

4M Halloween Theme Party


How many times have I heard Angie Baby before? I don’t know, but I never, ever listened to the lyrics really until today. You gotta love Helen Reddy’s spootacular smoky voice that adds just the right edge to this 1970s song.

Welcome to Monday’s Music Moves Me 113th edition!  This week’s theme is “Halloween music, videos, cartoons or bloopers.


When DH & I were dating in 1977, we got to see Atlanta Rhythm Section in concert at Bluefield State Community College. This second-hand song charted Billboard Hits in 1979….


The Sonny & Cher show was a popular icon in TV viewing for most of us growing up in the 70s.  Do you remember this song?

For those who are not as mature (age-wise) as some of us, then perhaps this one will be more familiar from the 1990 TV show Twin Peaks. A lovely theme song which will forever haunt your memory with the murder of  Laura Palmer at the onset of the first season.

Twin Peaks is available on Netflix.

Wasn’t that an electric experience? Why keep it to yourself? Come on spread the word. Invite all of your friends to join best hip blog hop party each Monday!

Are you ready for us to groove to your tunes? Here’s all you gotta do:

  • Go to YouTube & insert your preferred music video.
  • Grab the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” button code to display anywhere on your blog.
  • Link your 4M post URL (not your main URL) below & leave a comment telling us you’re our newest follower (“Follow me” options in right side bar). Then rock around the block with any & everybody you want on the linky!

Anytime Costumes Giveaway US/Canada Ends: 8/29/12

Let me see a show of hands…who likes Halloween? I loved dressing up that one time of the year, as a little girl and go door-to-door to get a bag of delicious treats – candy, bubble gum, popcorn balls, or candy apples.

Here in American approximately 85-90% of the children embark upon this fun timeless trick-or-treat tradition the Irish & Scott’s brought to this land in the 1800s, but the fun doesn’t stop with the kiddies.

Playing dressing up doesn’t end with the youth it just gets more elaborate as you become a grown-up. In fact, 65% of adults ages 18-35 still very much enjoy this part of the Halloween tradition. It’s apparent with the pop-up specialty stores that appear in our community in early September. That being said, I thought this would be an awesome time for a give-away! The folks at

One of the largest, most popular, costume shops on the web!

has given me the go-ahead with a such a proposal. Whoo-hoo! You may remember at the end of July, I did a product review from their Greek/Roman costume category. If not, you can read about it here.

Summer is quickly vanishing and it won’t be long before Halloween slips up on us.  Take advantage of the opportunity at hand and enter today for a chance to win a cool costume for yourself or a member of your family.
