I don't update on this page much anymore but for some reason I felt like talking about the music in kids' shows.

Since our son is almost two, I've been watching an awful lot of children's programming. A lot of it is pretty watchable, as far as baby shows go. I'm OK with most of the Disney Junior and Nick Junior shows. I particularly like the ones with good songs in them. My favorites in that category are Bubble Guppies and Goldie and Bear. Those two have really great music in them. The Lion Guard has some good songs too. Although I don't think it really belongs in the same category as the others, the updated Alvin and the Chipmunks on Nickelodeon  occasionally has some catchy tunes too, but it's hard to make out most of the lyrics because of the squeaky voices. Sophia the First is pretty good too.

I used to wonder why cartoons didn't have cool songs in them anymore like they did in the 80s and 90s, but after we had Trevor and started putting on the Junior channels for him to watch, I discovered that cartoons do still have good music, it's just all on the really young kids' shows. Goldie and Bear and Miles from Tomorrow Land on Disney Junior kinda remind me of the old Disney Afternoon shows like Gummie Bears and Wuzzles, so I kinda have a soft spot for them.
  • Listening to: Herb Alpert
  • Reading: Young Jijii's Dragon Ball doujinshi
  • Watching: Ultimate Spiderman vs. The Sinister 6
  • Playing: Guacamelee
  • Eating: Chicken strips and collards
  • Drinking: sweet tea

Okay, if I become as good at this as you, I'll be able to die happy. No joke.

Thanks, I appreciate that. Just enjoy doing what you do. I don't know a single artist who is as good as they want to be, and that's probably the way it should be!
