Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters wherever You would call me.
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.
Someone mentioned Braid in my presence again, which threw me into yet another period of not being able to get that beautiful soundtrack out of my head. I knew that the soundtrack was licensed from a number of Magnatune artists, and that they had a soundtrack album for the game available; but they’ve added “you are listening to Magnatune” advertisement blurbs into the tracks for non-paying streamers.
Message received, Magnatune. I’ll subscribe. After all: your tagline is, “We are not evil.” How bad could that be?
Anyway: my newfound high-quality download privileges have provoked some exploration of the Magnatune catalog, where I discovered Robin Stine. She only has one album, Daydream, published, but it’s pretty good. If you like female vocalist jazz. Which I apparently do.
I found a few CDs in my closet that I hadn't re-ripped yet (in my obsessive-compulsive desire to re-rip everything as 256kbps AAC). In the short stack was a burn of the P.O.A. album "Home" that Mark Eadie made for me a while back. While the disc was ripping, I decided to see if the Internet, in its near-infinite breadth, had album artwork. The first hit gave me not only album artwork, but a descriptive enough comment to get me track titles for the whole album.
Oh, and there was a comment on the page from my dad who, incidentally, is one of the performing artists on the album, and is pictured on the album cover.

Ludovico Einaudi’s “Nuvole bianche” reduce me to… purchasing music on iTunes. Simply beautiful.
Even if I couldn’t listen to the album ever again, I still wouldn’t regret the $10 I spent on it.
