It would be no surprise to regular readers of this blog to find out that I've been struggling for motivation to write reflectively here of late. I seem to be surprisingly resentful of those colleagues who seem to find the time to vege out in front of the television, read a favourite book or other non-digital and non-education related pastimes.

Don't worry, I'm sure it will pass.

So, instead of drafting insightful missives or spreading the comment love, I've been delving into online music. I've been listening and viewing clips from artists who I've had a passing interest in from years past but didn't spend much time listening to at the time.

I like alternative music - artists who are not mainstream (but still popular enough to have a significant body of work) and my tastes are probably hard to categorise. So, I stumbled back into the music of Eels and followed a bunch of links across YouTube, Wikipedia, the official band site and ended up at the Eels MySpace site. So, for your enjoyment (and definitely mine) here is a really nice version of "In My Dreams" performed by the very talented frontman, Mark Oliver Everett.
