Discoveries Archives

Things I discover while I’m browsing around.

Discovered in 2019

Where does the time go? It felt like only yesterday that I’ve started my “discoveries” category, and with it the idea that I’d like to paste useful links into a place that would make it easy for me to find them. Turns out I’ve been actioning such findings in different ways, and it also goes to show how little time I spend with important ventures like this.

So perhaps then, as another way of utilising this idea, I’ll have an annual post with important discoveries, or one whenever I feel like I’m running out of tabs in my various browsers. I might even add to this post once it’s published so I won’t clutter up my website with Discoveries alone.

It’s been a fun-packed month full of exciting discoveries – on and off the web. Let’s take a look at what I’ve found over the last four weeks.

Music

I was taking a late night walk after some heavy screen casting for those DAZ Studio videos, when I wandered by one of those restaurants South of Fifth in our neighbourhood (one that changes owners every 6 months or so). They were playing something that sounded almost live, and it immediately peaked may curiosity.

It was a cover version of the old Rod Stewart song “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”, in a Jazz Combo style – much like Paul Anka did on his 2005 album Rock Swings. The voice of the woman singing was remarkable, something of a mixture of Diana Krall and Sarah Vaughan.
