Title: What are you listening to?
Post by: rockchucker on July 03, 2005, 10:41:41 am
We've had threads on books and movies, and a bit on music here and there, mostly bodhrans and tin whistles, and now PenquinsScareMe is jonesin' on metal.

So I figured I'd ask what folks here like, music-wise.

Myself? Well, my tastes are pretty eclectic. Easier to list what I don't like, which comes down to some of the more twangy/whiney Country&Western music, rap/hip-hop or whatever it's being called these days, and "easy listening". Of course, within the various genres, there are artists I just can't stand. For example, I like Hank Williams Sr., but Billy Ray Cyrus -- ugh. I'm not all that much into metal -- speed for the sake of speed doesn't impress me. But I do like much of Metallica, and enjoy various tracks by some of the other groups, such as Iron Maiden. Really, I'm just not all that familiar with the various bands who play it.

I'd say that I'm pretty much a late bloomer music-wise, although even in high school I was starting to expand my tastes outside of pop/rock. And I can even credit rock music for helping in that regard. Some here might recall that on the flip side of the StyxII album, the first track starts with a segment from Bach's Little Fugue in G-minor. (IIRC, I haven't listened to that one for years.) And then there's all the borrowing Rick Wakeman did from baroque/classical composers. Speaking of Rick Wakeman, on the Yessongs album, one of the album sides starts off with excerpts from Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.

Yes, I own vinyl. :)

I had some early prejudices re. both C&W and big-band type stuff due to childhood overexposure to the Hee-Haw program and the Lawrence Welk show, but I've gotten over it. I now really enjoy Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, et. al. from that genre. It's only been the past 10 years or so that I've found I like it. What happened was I got sick and tired of commercial radio. So I found my way over to KUVO (http://www.kuvo.org/) and the rest is history. Discovering jazz is a worthwhile thing to do.

More recently, I've discovered a taste for Opera. One of my favorite recordings is a collection of Enrico Caruso. A lot of arias, I can take or leave, unless the performance is especially good. More or less out of this I've come to be a fan of Sarah Brightman, who's doing things other than opera these days, including a cover of Whiter Shade of Pale which is about as good as the one by Annie Lennox. Of course nobody can do it like Procul Harem did.

Somewhere along the line, I got a bit into Celtic stuff too. Silly Wizard, Planxty, The Tannahil Weavers. I think that happened when the Tannahil Weavers played the Highland Games at Estes Park. And speaking of highland games, how can I forget the bagpipes!  :)

So that's my thumbnail sketch.

Oh, BTW, CLAPTON IS GOD[/size]

My musical elevator never did go anywhere near the top.

In the past few years I've gathered more CDs, since I like to have something coming out of the speakers when I drive and I can no longer stomach most talk radio.  But it's pretty much all "best of" re-releases from the '70's and late sixties.  The Hollies, The Moody Blues, C-S-N, Jim Croche, that sort of thing.  

My daughter just rolls her eyes.  Now, she's gotten into "celtic" music lately, but it's mostly just faux-irish drinking songs.

Opera?  I worked for a guy in Texas one time, whose daughter was an up-and-coming soprano doing guest stints at the Met.  He used to drag me to the nearest tape player all the time, to listen to her latest demo.  Always sounded like a catfight to me.  I've been to a few operas over the years, but only the noise keeps me awake.

Rockchucker, you and I have almost identical musical tastes.
I've been listening to some Steve Earle lately.. most of his stuff is pretty good but he slaughtered "poncho and lefty" to name a few LOL.... Copperhead road rocks, as does F*CK the FCC..

When I'm drawing I listen to classical music. I especially like J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations (http://www.music.qub.ac.uk/~tomita/essay/cu4.html), as performed by Andras Schiff (http://www.terryharrison.force9.co.uk/andras.htm), as well as Bach's Six Unaccompanied Cello Suites, performed by Peter Wispelwey (http://www.peterwispelwey.com/home.html). If you like Yo Yo Ma, Mr. Wispelwey will blow you away with his soulful interpretations which, in my opinion, far exceed Ma's abilities.

Right now I'm downloading a 25 album bittorrent of the Beatles!

Oh, just run with it, Ragnar.  :P

Right now, I'm listening to the fan noise on my computer. :(

To my chagrin, I'm not actually listening to much these days, partially because I have roommates, and I'm not going to infringe on their earspace, particularly consider how kind and generous they've been to me. Also, I typically don't do "background noise" music. I actually like to kick back and really take in whatever I choose to play. And right now, I don't have the stereo system to do that to my satisfaction.  Nor do I have a decent listening arrangement here in my bedroom/office/living/dining/room here in the basement.

The stereo in my beater car is crap. Didn't much matter until yesterday, when I finally put on a new muffler. Usually I have it on the jazz station I mentioned. I generally don't listen to tapes or CDs in the car, because I don't like to carry them back/forth between there and the house. When I next buy a car stereo unit, I'll get one with a jack for an MP3 player, except I'll get one that does Ogg Vorbis, since that's the format I use for tunes on the computer (yes, I do sometimes have the 'puter play tunes while I'm surfing).

Looks like we're all eclectic.

The WFMU blog at

http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/ (http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/)

has got me hooked with their wide-ranging variety of music and commentary. Just one of the great links I've found there recently is the 365 Days Project at

http://www.ubu.com/outsiders/365/ (http://www.ubu.com/outsiders/365/)

 I can and will listen to just about anything, but one of my favorite bands of all time are TISM (This Is Serious Mum):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TISM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TISM)

occasionally for their music, and always for their lyrics and perpetually irreverent attitude.

 :lol:

Yeah, some of it has that sort of tone to it. I'm guessing that demo tapes for an up-and-coming soprano would feature the more famous and difficult arias, which, particularly when taken out of the context of the entire piece, can get tiresome.

Opera is, or was for me, something to work into. I can't actually tell you what got me started on it. Perhaps a good way to learn to appreciate it is to start with What's Opera Doc? (Warner Bros.; Featuring Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, et. al.)  :D Actually, that's not all that far offbase, since it's likely that anyone who appreciates good music will be able to find excerpts from various operas which are appealling. I wouldn't start anyone off with the full performance of Madame Butterfly (which I haven't listened too) or Der Ring des Neibelungen (also haven't done the whole thing). But there are light operas, such as The Bartered Bride and The Barber of Seville, and more approachable works, such as Bizet's Carmen. Metalheads might enjoy Carmina Burana, or at least parts of it.

I'm not a huge fan of cello, although I've enjoyed things I've heard from Yo Yo Ma. He did a sort of Latin Jazz collaboration CD from which I heard a really fun cut a couple weeks ago. It was, IIRC, Yo Yo Ma and Rosa Passos. The track was "Samba", from the CD Obrigado (Sony Y46).

My favorite music is punk and ska music.  I don't have much of a collection anymore, because when I became a mother, I didn't figure that punk and kids mixed, so I gave all my albums away.  What I didn't realize is that punk is a way of being, not just a music style.  I've been a punk all of my adult life (I don't mean a criminal, but a rebel-outlaw).

I also really like the Beattles, SRV, older Alanis Moirsette, Jack Johnson, Tom Petty, swing music and alternative.  My radio is either set to the alternative station or the station that plays fusion, blues, oldies and new music.  

Favorite bands:  
X
Violent Femmes
Ramones
Everclear
Sublime
Beattles
No Doubt
the Police
 
B) You get the idea.

My husband is a musician in his spare time.  He loves Jerry Cantrell and Alice in Chains.  I've grown to like them quite a lot.  Layne Stayley was an incredible singer, and it is so sad he gave his life to herion.  My husband also is a huge metal fan, which I haven't embraced much.  I can tolerate it-- I just tend to tune it out  :lol:

Rush
Hey, I was a Rush fan before it was cool to be a Rush fan -- at least where I went to school. Then 2112 came out, and all of a sudden everyone was listening to it. But did I get any cred. for being the only guy on campus with a copy of Fly By Night? No!

Given your other tastes, I gotta ask. Have you heard of Mike Ness?  :D

Rush

I use to listen to Rush but I stopped listening to Rush. Rush is a big time supporter of whatever the administration does. Rush is gung ho about the war in Iraq. I'd rather listen to O'Reilly than Rush. :D

I use to have Rush albums on 8 track. THey've been around a while.

I have also listened to popular rock but lately I have been a country fan. I like outlaw country. I like listening to Toby Keith and Trace Atkins. I have been a Johnny Cash fan for years however. I like listening to Elvis also. I have a cd by Elixa Gilkynson titled Land of Milk and Honey. There is a song on it titled Hiway 9. That is the way it is spelled. That song is about the war in Iraq. I like that song Whiskey for my men and beer for my horses.

My number 1 all-time favorite, that I listen to most often and love the most, is Roxette.

But I also enjoy....

Belinda Carlisle
Portishead
Garbage
Sneaker Pimps
Cranberries
Twiztid
Moby
Sarah Mclachlan
Tori Amos
The Beatles
Bjork
10,000 Maniacs
Luscious Jackson


Since the advent of iTunes and mp3s and whatnot, I find myself less and less liking specific groups, and just collecting individual songs - the songs I like.  The only groups I find to be consistantly excellent are Roxette and Portishead.

penguinsscareyou, I really "dig" your list - Leonard Cohen, Stray Cats, The Traveling Wilburys (http://www.wilburys.info/) I thought these were sort of obscure these days. They're all in my collection (just weren't in the car at the time I posted  :lol: )

Dunno about "favorites",  there's just too darn many different kinds of stuff that I like,  from way too many different eras.  OTOH,  there's also a whole bunch of folks I'm seeing mentioned in here that I've never heard of.  Which makes me wonder...

But then,  there's the state of radio these days,  which isn't conducive to finding out about a wide variety of artists,  anyhow. :-(

I didn't listen to country at all for a long time until a few years ago (this guy I liked listened to it and I thought he'd like me more if I liked it too.. it worked). About that time I switched to exclusively country but recently I have gone back to some of the other stuff I have because I decided that I still like it. imagine that!

You are not be true to yourself if you pretend to like something because you think someone else will like you if you like what they do. I wouldn't have much respect for someone who did that. I suggest being an individual. Don't change who you are just to please others. If you use subterfuge to attract someone by pretending to like what they do then they don't really like you for who you are but rather they like someone else who you are pretending to be.

I'm sorry, HRearden, you must have missed the part where I said I like it. I'm not pretending, I never was pretending to like it. If I didn't like it I wouldn't listen to it. I do not change for others. Sometimes it simple requires someone else to expose you to something you may like, as in my case with country music.

You stated that you thought he's like you more if you like it and that is what gave me that impression.

I like country music.. which is actually quite odd for me considering that country music is often associated with blind patriotism and faith, neither of which I particularly wish to be associated with...

Country has a history of that. Merle Haggard recorded, "Fighting Side of Me", and "Okie from Moskogie" which were pro-military songs during the Vietnam war. One of the lines in Fighting side of me is love it or leave it.

snokrash-- acoustic is cool!  I really enjoy stuff like the MTV unplugged albums, even though MTV is a cheesy, corporate whore.  The whole acoustic rejuvination has been so wonderful, especially if the band incorporates a bass fiddle for the electric bass.  I'm definitely going to check it out.  John Doe was recently in Seattle playing with Lucinda Williams.  I don't know if they;re touring together, or if it was a one night deal.

Since people are being more expansive in their lists, I'll expand as well.  It shouldn't surprise me, but those who have posted have similair faves.  

More favorites:
-Government Mule ( Soulshine always puts a smile on my face)
-Cranberries
-Brian Setzer Orchestra
-Cherry Poppin' Daddies
-the "I am Sam" sound track
-Pearl Jam
-the Let it Be Naked cd
-Galactic
-Guns and Roses
-Red Hot Chili Pepper
-Reel Big Fish
-Mighty, Mighty Boss Tones
-Madness
-New Found Glory
-Big Fat Jake
-Presidents of the United States of America
-Muse  (oh, I love Muse's powerful sound)
-Louis the XVI
-Adam and the Ants
-Generation X
-old Oingo Boingo
-the Who

I like country music.. which is actually quite odd for me considering that country music is often associated with blind patriotism and faith, neither of which I particularly wish to be associated with...

Country has a history of that. Merle Haggard recorded, "Fighting Side of Me", and "Okie from Moskogie" which were pro-military songs during the Vietnam war. One of the lines in Fighting side of me is love it or leave it.

                      $
Both country music and blues are steeped in old-time southern religion.  Personally I love it when I hear Loretta Lynn or Jerry Lee Lewis singing one of the hymns I grew up with, but with that said, you're right.  I can't stand most of the current country music because it's so schmaltzy and syrupy.  When I heard Darrell Worley's "Have You Forgotten" I wanted to puke.  I actually have it on my hard drive just so I can revel in how much I despise it. :huh:   It's such a blatant cashing in.  When I read Johnny Cash's autobiography, I was struck by his observation that country music as a genre had become largely a caricature of itself, the symbols themselves having taken on greater significance than that which they symbolized.  For years I had felt the same way about the outlaw biker image.  Hell, it's happening all over this country.

Progressive rock, jazz, celtic, and I have Ian to thank for getting me into bagpipe music.  

Lately -

Shadow Gallery - their new album, Room V, is the greatest thing to hit the progressive rock scene since Metropolis Part 2 - Scenes From A Memory.
Kings X
Alex Skolnick Trio
Counting Crows - just got their "best of" album - all their good songs in one CD.  Nice.
Tempest
Dave Brubeck, of course...
Chick Correia Electric Band
The Wallflowers
Diana Krall
The Pogues - really fun stuff!

Skyclad (when I just want to scream)
Marley's Ghost (esp. their song "Aura."  "I've seen your aura and it's ugly...")
Madison Greene (Balafon Intro/Crywater Prayer makes me want to dance, but I don't care about most of their other songs)
Mary Chapin-Carpenter
Leslie Fish
country music when I'm in my car
Motley Crue (sometimes)
Pink Floyd (thanks to my older brother and my 1st husband)
classic rock
Tom Chapin's kid's music

I also like classical piano, James Galway, celtic music (not the modern stuff), and bluegrass.
Like rockchucker, I like to sit down and enjoy my music without interruptions or distractions.  Since I have way too many of both of those, I really don't listen to much.

I've been immersing myself in David Diamond, who died a couple weeks ago at 89.

Diamond's career was really hot in the '40s, but in the 50s he moved to Italy for a decade or so (partly because he got a Guggenheim and could, partly because of McCarthyism.). He came back and taught at Juilliard for a number of years.

His earlier works (say through 4th Symphony) alternate between great energy and optimism (both of which I need these days) and tragic grandeur. In the late 50s his music became thornier and more chromatic, without losing its power to communicate. He made a comeback in the 90s, mostly through the advocacy of conductor Gerard Schwarz.  To a certain extent his case was that of a relative conservative writing against the trends of the times, but he was also somewhat personally prickly, and not afraid to argue that he wasn't getting his props.

Best introduction is his Symphonies 2 & 4 on Naxos...great music, cheap price.

I'll listen to most near anything, but not quite.  I can't stand opera, rap, or classical (with very few exceptions to the latter and none to the formers).

I primarily listen to country, everything from Hank Williams, Sr. up through the more modern stuff.  I've been known to listen to most styles of rock, the blues, and most of the stuff played on the local mix station (which is mostly rock and pop).  I station surf a lot and if it sounds good, I'll hang out.

I'm currently listening to "Train Travelin'" by Dierks Bently with the Del McCoury Band, which is the last track on Dierks Bently's self titled CD...which I bought solely for the song "What Was I Thinkin'", which is the first track on the CD.  As a bonus, most of  the songs on it are pretty good and the rest are tolerable.

I'm also currently carrying with me Toby Keith's "Honkytonk University", Jet's "Get Born", Jamie Cullum's "Twentysomething" (with an excellent cover of "Wind Cries Mary" among others), and the deluxe edition of Norah Jones' "Feels Like Home" album.

I recently took several CDs out of my daily carry including a live album from Ricky Skaggs which contained an interesting cover of "Cat's in the Cradle".  My Doc Watson CDs are all at home, as are my standard edition of "Feels Like Home" and Norah's "Come Away With Me" album, which has an excellent cover of Hank Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart".

Something that really draws me is purity of voice.  And by that, I mean that their voice sounds the same live as it does on the album.  For example, Jamie Cullum's CD was recorded on analog equipment for 2 reasons:  1) they didn't need all the tracks digital recording requires and 2) the boy can sing.  Well enough, in fact, that he doesn't need digital editing to make his music tolerable.  I discovered his music the same way I did Norah Jones, which was stumbling across Austin City Limits while channel surfing.

If it's not rap or real heavy metal "rock" I'll listen to it, and probably like it. Eclectic seems to be a trend around here.

I've most recently been on an Oasis kick (Nostalgia, baby; can't believe it's been 10 years since What's the Story, Morning Glory) and diggin' on the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack.

I like EVERYTHING the Eagles have done. They're probably my favorite band, because I've never heard an Eagles song I don't like, and I've heard them all. B)

A lot of PSM's list can be moved into mine; Stray Cats, REO Speedwagon :P (no, really), CCR, Stevie Ray Vaughan, &tc.

Some more stuff I like to listen to. securitysix mentioned purity of voice.
Barbra Streisand - I have loved to hear her sing since I first heard My Name Is Barbra in '65. At that time, she and I didn't have such opposing political views.  :rolleyes:  Whadda voice.
Linda Rondstadt - I've enjoyed everything she did - from the Stone Poneys to the work she did with Nelson Riddle and her Latin and Mexican stuff.
Mel Torme
Kiri Te Kanawa

These are not necessarily purity of voice.
John Mayall
The Harmonicats
Harpo Marx
Chico Marx - I love his style - the scene in The Big Store  (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033388/) where Ravelli is teaching the kids and they play with the same style is a classic.
Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
Asleep at the Wheel
Zoot Sims, Dexter Gordon, Thelonius Monk, Grover Washington, Lou Marinin - oh, that reminds me - the Blues Brothers

Well, you might like Sarah Brightman then. I know, I already mentioned her. She originated the role of Christine in Phantom of the Opera, and I believe was hooked up with Andrew Lloyd Weber for a while.

Also, there's a somewhat obscure group called Renaissance, featuring classicaly trained Annie Haslam on lead vocals. Very nice, IMHO.

Interesting side note. I don't know if you are/were aware of this. And I don't even know if it is relevant. When we stopped off at Mount Airy, NC on our way down to SC last month, we stopped in at Opie's Candy Store. It was, obviously, an old fashioned candy store with bulk candy in jars. They had a candy called Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Definitely.  I also saw Big Bad Voodoo Daddy mentioned who I also enjoy.

And I also forgot to mention that I own almost every George Winston (http://www.georgewinston.com/montanabio.html) CD.  I will say, though, that this fellow really should be heard live for fullest enjoyment.  He looks basically the same in concert as he does in the picture when you follow that link (assuming he is also wearing socks and no shoes in that picture).  He takes instruments and plays them as they were not meant to be played.  For instance, when he plays the piano, you will sometimes see him reaching under the lid and plucking at the strings inside to create the sound he wants instead of confining himself to the keys.

The links in the bio of him don't work. I tried nearly all of them.

I like Roger Miller. For some reason, anytime his name comes up, I think of that other comic musician, Ray Stevens. Songs such as Gitarzan and Wildwood Flower -- sittin' there on that sack o' seeds. :D

Also speaking of Roger Miller, Homer & Jethro (http://members.cox.net/audubon5425/hj/disc.htm) used his music some. H&J were sorta like Wierd Al Jankovich. They did spoofs. For example, King of the Road became King of the Camp, about summer camp. They also did the tax protest song "Charlie Cheated on His Income Tax". And speaking of those two, Jethro Burns was a fine mandolin player.

Yeah, I like Bluegrass too. Nothing else like the "High Lonesome" sound of Bill Monroe.

Some of Setzer's stuff is really good, he just gets a little too croony for me after a while.  Like he's trying to be Bing Crosby.
I'm not a huge Harry Connick fan, but he's the real deal, born and raised on the Delta.  I respect him because he can't help but be exactly what he is, whereas with Setzer, it feels like a lounge act.  Just my take.

Well, I'll just have to trust your judgement and take the plunge. Gotta hit the library tomorrow anyways.

Listening to Setzer right now. Not very "loungy" to my ears. But then when I think of a lounge act, my mind comes up with Wayne Newton singing Danke Schön. Or Tom Jones.

Update: Okay, now he's doing "Since I Don't Have You". Very loungy. I might even delete that track.

A lot of Setzer's stuff is very good.  I saw him open for Tom Petty once a few years ago.  Best opening act I've ever seen.  Could've been a headliner.  Little guy, not more than 5' 7".  Looked funny slinging that giant hollowbody.  I was just listening to Dirty Boogie (the album) to make sure I wasn't being too harsh on him.  There's some great stuff on that album, but "Since I Don't Have You" is just so, so, over the top...it's almost embarrassing.

Okay.  Bedtime.

And a single piece that never leaves my play list, that I always return to when down and need to be enveloped in beauty to soothe myself; a song that I long ago decided was the best piece of music ever:

The Habanera from Bizet's Carmen performed by Maria Calais.

Now there's a list I can get into. I have yet to spend much time with Mahler. On my to-do list though. I'm trying to remember the Sci-Fi novel where one of Mahler's symphonies plays a role. Bloody hell, I can't think of it. Was there an unfinished Mahler? If so, I think that was the one which was in the story. Regrettably, I have a poor memory for things such as this. But the thing was that there was some sort of "harmonic convergence" sort of thing happening on earth, with a particular performance of a Mahler symphony which would do some sort of voodoo thing with people's minds. Maybe it was a fictional undiscovered Mahler symphony? I don't recall enough about it to get a fix on it with Google.

And speaking of John Prine, let's not forget Steve Goodman.

I don't have the complete Carmen. I have only "Scenes and Arias" (London 421 300-2, Te Kanawa, Domingo) The track titles are in French, and I see nothing resembling Habanera. Ah, perhaps you're referring to L'Amour est un oiseau rebelle? A little more googling, and there it is. Yes, a wonderful song. Oh, BTW, in the recording I mention, Te Kanawa is Micaela; Carmen is sung by Tatiana Troyanos.

I went into the office to make up for a sick day last week, and had a Pink Floyd afternoon:

The Wall
Wish You Were Here
Meddle
Animals

Didn't listen to Dark Side of the Moon yesterday, but it is, of course, a perennial favorite of mine and of millions of others.

Also listened to an obscure one: Sanford Ponder: Etosha - Private Music in the Land of Dry Water
Hard to describe. Found it a long time ago in the jazz section.

Speaking of obscure, the other day I listened to an old vinyl. Dory Previn's Mythical Kings and Iguanas. Anybody round these parts heard of it?

I got a late birthday gift yesterday: about 30 CDs of live Rolling Stones concerts. From the 1969 Hyde Park concert (I was there. I remember bits of it, not many bits seeing as how it was both the 60s and a long time ago) to the 3 concerts in Boston from the 40 Licks tour. I was at the 2nd of those and remember quite a lot of it.

Next month I'm going to see them at Fenway Park!

The same bootlegger who gifted me with the above, gave me  similar set of Pink Floyd live a couple of birthdays ago.

I'm definitely into classical music: Classic Rock, Bach, Montiverdi, Palestrina, Handel, etc.

Forgot to mention this, one of my all time favorite albums:

Bob Gibson and Bob Camp: At the Gate of Horn (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005REP3/qid=1121017181/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-3256219-2963116?v=glance&s=music)

This was a record my mother had from the time I was a small child, and I practically wore out the vinyl playing it. Two guys, acoustic guitar, harmonies so rich you'd think it was a whole choir. One of the Amazon reviews says "This is how music was meant to sound." I concur.

Apparently they released a "remake" in 1994, with some additional material:

At the Gate of Horn: Revisited (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00000182P/qid=1121017181/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/104-3256219-2963116?v=glance&s=music)

Just a bloody rollicking good time.

Ah, perhaps you're referring to L'Amour est un oiseau rebelle?

Yep. 'The Habanera' is it's generic name, and I use it in preference to having to look up the spelling of the real title. :P

I've heard a dozen different versions, but the Calais is --IMO-- the most magnificent and delightful. That woman had a Voice, capitalization required. :)

Last night I was helping a neighbor load his truck for a "post yard sale dump run". Found a box of LP's. Three Dog Night, Pat Benetar, The Allman Brothers, Billy Joel, and more. He said I could have 'em if I wanted 'em because he was tired of tripping over them. The LP's seem to be in good shape and sound pretty good to! Gonna spend the next few evenings listening and figuring out which ones I will keep, and which ones I'll give to my brother (he wants any I don't want).
Just found a .38 Special album my brother can have. It has a GREAT big scratch in it! Call it "payback" for the Steve Earle CD cases he gave me that contained "Sing-a-long With Barney" CD's.

Listening to Everclear this week.  I think I hold the record for checking out Sparkle and Fade from our library system. If it was vinyl, there'd be a groove worn at Santa Monica and Sparkle and Fade.

I checked out the Gits and Von Bondie from the library too.  I think I like both CDs.  I haven't listened to them entirely yet.  When I was bbqing the other day, and my doggie started baying at her hound buddies walking up the street, my neighbor was talking to his buddy on his back deck about what a pain in the ass my dog is.  I went inside and turned on the Von Bondies at a nice listening decibil ( was outside bbqing, you know), and they went inside :lol: .  Sheesh-- I had my doggie go take a time out and took care of her baying-- her barking lasted all of a minute and it was broad daylight out! At least my dog doesn't bark for hours on end or at every leaf like their anklebiter does.

Sorry, I digress.... back to the music thread.

Pretty much exclusive to Darkest of the Hillside Thickets nowadays.

Once you CthulhuPunk, everything else is junk.

Such fabulous refrains as:

I'm digging up the world.  But I still haven't found that girl.

And:

The ghosts from space have burrowed in my face
They name their price inside a block of ice


And:

One kiss was all it took,
She gave me the Innsmouth look

:)

With 5 CDs, I have more than enough material for my drive to work.

Odd though that many of their songs are musically weak, but the lyrics kill me.

Lately I've been listening to a lot of jazz and jazz fusion.  Al DiMeola, Don Caballero, Bill Evans Trio, some Japanese instumental stuff.  Keiko Matsui really knows how to handle a piano.  Ella Fitzgerald.  Billie Holiday.

More prog, always.  Pallas, Transatlantic, Ayreon.  Dream Theater's new album isn't bad - I listened to it straight through while driving back from North Carolina after a shooting match.  Kind of nice.

I forgot The Smithereens.  And I've never gotten much into Ted Nugent, but I heard a song by him for the first time today that was just incredible.  From most of what you hear on the radio, you'd think Cat Scratch Fever was the only song he ever wrote.

The Smithereens are good fun.

Was the Nugent song Stranglehold by chance?  
Yes, it was indeed Stranglehold.  Took me four months to track it down, but that is the song I was referring to.

I See a Darkness, by Johnny Cash

You're quite welcome, Rockchucker. I've been enjoying all their music. There are other bluegrass and string bands at archive. But, imo, not as good as Greensky. Although, if ya' need more tunes, some are ok-- Yonder Mountain String Band, Almost Acustic Band, Cornmeal, Hit and Run Bluegrass, Missing String Band, Stringtown Pickers ... all available at archive.org as well.

Sigh. I really need to budget at bit, and see if I can squeeze in DSL.

But the library has bluegrass, although I'm lately on a rock/pop/blues kick. I've seen Yonder Mtn. there, IIRC ... Hot Rize too. I'm not a big enough bluegrass fan to be familiar with a lot of bands, but I do enjoy it. Heard a neat piece on the radio a couple days ago. It was the Ginger Baker Trio with Bela Fleck. Dunno how to characterize it. Jazz mandolin with a bluegrass flair?

BTW, I know I've mentioned it someplace before, but Rebuild the Wall by Luther Wright and the Wrongs is really great, if you're into both Pink Floyd and Bluegrass. Just listened to it, matter of fact.

Land as a Common Good Symphony

The only extensible symphony. It can last for days or even years. It also allows any additional instruments whether traditional symphonic or not. That sometimes interferes with absolute harmony, but the symphony's complexity more than makes up for any loss. Also note that the symphony was written over a number of years by an unidentified group of composers from Vienna and Venice thus credit goes to simply "Der Gruppo". Berlin (East) Philharmonic planned to play it but the wall came down before they could get funding. China claims to have started it in the Ming Dynasty, but blame the Japanese of WWII for interrupting its conclusion and destroying all records. ;-)

When I read Johnny Cash's autobiography, I was struck by his observation that country music as a genre had become largely a caricature of itself, the symbols themselves having taken on greater significance than that which they symbolized.

Exactly why I don't care for a lot of "country music" that comes out of Nashville these days. You might try Shooter Jennings, son of Waylon. His album is called "Put The "O" Back In Country", and it stems from Shooter's disgust with the current state of "country music". 


What do I listen to?
Well, the following covers about 90% of my music tastes for the last four years or so.
Shooter and Waylon Jennings
Merle Haggard
George Jones
Johnny Cash
Willie Nelson
Hank Williams Sr, Jr, and III
Gretchen Wilson
Big and Rich
Kid Rock
George Strait
Chris Ledoux
Toby Keith
Steve Earl
David Allen Coe
Blake Shelton
Dierks Bentley
Allison Krauss
Brad Paisley
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Loretta Lynn
Dolly Parton
Nearly anything Bluegrass....

Lately, I've found myself yearning for some rock/metal/alternative music. The old stuff from my "wild" years...
AC/DC
Twisted Sister
Metallica
Scorpions
Tom Petty
Rush
Ted Nugent
Aerosmith
Ministry
Slayer
Cannibal Corpse
Pantera
Danzig(If you can find it, pick up "Black Aria". It's a classical album composed by Glenn Danzig. Beautiful...)
Rob Zombie
Type O Negative
Sisters Of Mercy
Alice In Chains
Social Distortion
Henry Rollins Band
Ozzy Osbourne
Black Flag
Faith No More
Mr. Bungle

The stars in the heavens are moving
Soon they will align

Thor, god of thunder
Let me die with a sword in my hand
Raise your hands, swords in the wind
Brothers of metal together again
With blood in our voices we ride
We'll fight till we win or we'll fight until we die

Gods of thunder, fire and rain
Cut into the earth till none shall remain
Sons of demons I command you to fly
Ride on from hell into the sky
We'll fight until we die

Sinatra:

And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I’ll say it clear,
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.

I’ve lived a life that’s full.
I’ve traveled each and ev’ry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I’ve had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.
I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

How 'bout that Salty Dawg?


Me neither. Plus you get extra confusion points for almost writing "TMBG" :D Pretty easy for my mind to just go there when seeing just the first 3 letters.

I llked the Lennox cover. WSOP was also covered by Sarah Brightman -- not as good.

Al good stuff. Man, I had forgot Kraftwerk.

I just checked the DVD of Pink Floyd's the Wall out from the library. That movie just plain kicks ass. And IMHO Comfortably Numb blows away Stairway to Heaven on the list of top rock songs of all time. Just yesterday at work we were listening to Virgin Classic Rock (http://www.virginradio.co.uk/thestation/listen/index.html) from England and they played I Don't Like Mondays by the Boomtown Rats. I couldn't remember who played the song, so I googled it because a co-worker and I were trying to remember. So, here's (http://www.80smusiclyrics.com/artists/boomtownrats.htm) something I never knew
Quote
The Boomtown Rats were at a US radio station for an interview when the story of Brenda Spencer came over the news wire. The 16 year old California high school student made headlines when she grabbed her father's gun and opened fire on her school from a house across the street, injuring eight students and killing the school's principal and custodian. When later asked why she'd gone on the shooting spree, she responded "I don't like Mondays."
...
Singer Bob Geldof embarked on a solo career, and while not finding pop huge success he has made his mark on pop culture by playing the lead role in Pink Floyd's The Wall.

Is that a tune that was recorded at Woodstock,  perchance?  I might have that one on vinyl too,  I'm not sure.  At this point all of our vinyl is stuck in a cabinet in a corner of the bedroom and there's no turntable set up so I haven't even looked at it since we moved in here 6-1/2 years ago,  dunno even what's in there and I can't get to it for the stacks of books in front of it.  Maybe it's time...

I've been talking about getting a bunch of that material on to the computer anyhow (gotta love random access and playlists and such stuff :-),  maybe it's time to get rolling on it.

Close to 70?  Age doesn't seem to mean much for those who really know how to rock.  It amazes me that the Stones are still going,  still _touring_ even.  And they ain't all that far from that age,  I believe.

Quote
answer to second - I don't know
Gee... there's so many musicians / bands listed in this thread that I've never even heard OF, much less heard. :)

Yeah,  same here,  though I'm seeing a bunch of reminders of bands I haven't heard in ages and also reminders of some I'd just as soon not ever hear again since they were so over-played by what passes for radio stations around these parts.  I used to have a radio on all the time,  but finally got to where I couldn't take it any more,  what they do to it around here.

(Snip)

Quote
Al good stuff. Man, I had forgot Kraftwerk.

I can only ever remember one tune by them,  "Autobahn",  and I haven't heard it in ages.  My brother has a whole mess of thier stuff,  at least a half a dozen CDs.  Maybe I oughta check 'em out one of these days.

Bob Geldof turns up in odd places from time to time. For example, Hard Day on the Planet, by Loudon Wainwright has the line, "Even Bob Geldof looks alarminly thin". And speaking of Loudon, Cardboard Boxes is both amusing and inspirational, at the appropriate times.

Delos, you know there are just too many good bands out there. Hell, I like Moby Grape. And The Buffalo Springfield (but not Dusty Springfield). At the odd moment, I can even appreciate Ann Murray. Given a few of the people you list, I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Roy Buchanan, Omar and the Howlers, and Albert King, or B. B. King. And, speaking of KIngs, how about John Hiatt? His version of Ridin' With the King is fantastic. Danny Gatton did a great cover of the theme song from The Simpsons. I have no idea why, but your mention of the Furs makes me think of 10CC and the Velvet Underground. I also like Concrete Blonde. You mention Cyndi Lauper. But have you heard Julie Brown (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trapped_in_the_Body_of_a_White_Girl)? She's a real kick! Yeah, I could look at the album collection and come up with some more mainstream stuff that hasn't gotten any mention, and some more obscure stuff such as Starcastle, or Snail.

Cecelio, you're the first person I can think of since I was in high school (nevermind how long ago that was) who has mentioned Tangerine Dream. The only thing I have by them is Tyger. Getting a peak at that section of my collection, I also see Enigma, Mannheim Steamroller, Kitaro, Vangelis, and Stomu Yamashta, to name a few. I prefer Placido Domingo to Pavarotti. I also have some Caruso. It's amazing to me how the power of that voice carried through the primitive recording techniques of his day. As far as opera goes, I think my favorites are I Pagliacci and Carmina Burana, although I'm also fond of Wagner.

And God, I hate the man's politics, but I have to agree with at least one of Cockburn's lyrics. If I had a rocket launcher, some son of a bitch would die!  :ph34r:

Don't worry, Delos. If we keep this thread up, after a while we'll have mentioned almost everyone that matters.

I've seen that name come up several times fairly recently,  but that was in the Synth-DIY list.  :-)  I don't know them,  though,  except for the name.  And a bunch of the others that I've seen mentioned in here I've never heard of,  either.  Some of yours,  some of those that other folks are posting.  Where the heck do you guys find out about all of these folks?

I predominantly listen to country, but I station surf when I'm listening to the radio.  Anything that doesn't sound like country, bluegrass, or hillbilly rock that comes on a country station gets me to start turning the dial.  Lately, I've been in more of a modern rock sort of mood, so I've been listening to more of that.

I've got 8 CDs that I've been carrying with me lately, stacked in my backpack in the order they've been listend to most recent.  From top to bottom, the stack goes like this:

"Away From the Sun" -- 3 Doors Down
"Get Born" -- Jet
"Modern Day Drifter" -- Dierks Bently
"Fallen" -- Evanescence
"Celtic Treasury" (2 disc set) -- Cead Mile Failte Orchestra and Ceili Festival Singers
"R.I.D.E. (Rebellious Individuals Delivering Entertainment)" -- Trick Pony
"Somewhere Down in Texas" -- George Strait
"Guitar Classical Gold" -- Soloists of the St. Cecelia Symphony Orchestra

A note on the last one there, I generally hate classical music.  Strangely enough, it brings out violent tendencies and shortens my temper.  I've no idea why, either.  I've found, though, that if it's played on a guitar, I'm fine with it. 

Common playlists at home include:

Shooter Jennings (didn't know he was Waylon's boy, but that makes a lot of sense.  I always heard a lot of flavor from Shooter that reminds me of David Allan Coe's style.)
David Allan Coe
The Hanks Williams (Sr., Jr. and III)
Doc and Merle Watson
Ricky Skaggs
Allison Krauss
Leon Russell (and his country personality, Hank Wilson)
Merle Haggard
Willie Nelson
ZZ Top
And many more...

I love the classic Ella live from Berlin where she forgets the lyrics to Mack the Knife. She doesn't miss a beat.

She wouldn't,  she's too professional.  I only have one live recording with her,  "Tommy Flanagan Trio",  I think?  Not as good as some stuff I've heard.

What about Captain Beefheart?

oh, yeah, and Jeff Beck

Long time since I heard anything by him.

Ella & Louis were quite good together. I keep 'em on-line.

And I've enjoyed TFTrio with Ella. But the old records are in storage:-(.

I recommend Joe Pass (guitar) with Ella. There Ella produces the song the way she likes it and Joe provides excellent sound around her voice wherever it leads.

Metallica (used to be Metal) was good before the black album.
I agree with that, although I would include the black album as good.

True Metallica will always have Cliff, semi-Metallica continued to the black album.  Metallica was no more after that and became just some other crappy psuedo-metal band.

For those into shredding, (which I kinda am) there's a movie in the works about Jason Becker. http://www.jasonbecker.com/  For samples, go to 'Sound Clips'.  One of my absolute faves is 'Air' from the Perpetual Burn album.

 Music has never occupied the place of importance in my life that it seems to for many people. I never expected much of music beyond a moment's entertainment. I never looked to it as a basis for my philosphy on life. Certainly it had nowhere near the influence on me that books and movies had.

 I never had much money to spend on records, tapes, whatever, or on stereo equipment. I always had other priorities. I do not currently own a CD player or tape player or even a radio except for the radio and tape player in my car. About the only place I ever listen to music for its own sake is in the car, and I dislike driving.

You might want to read some interviews that Lars gave right before and after the abomination "St. Anger" came out. Many interviews had him saying "We could shit onto a jewel case and people would still buy the recored!". Plus, they purposely had a bad production to make it sound bad. To each his own, though.

I did snag that whole show,  but after listening to it today I wasn't all that impressed.  Maybe I just need to go over the site and do some poking around,  see what else is there.

Or maybe I should finally get around to installing some of the software I've been looking at to make what's on the computer available over the LAN and get serious about getting more in there,  especially some of the stuff that's on vinyl,  that I haven't listened to in ages.

Oooooookay. Well, thanks for the explanation. You realize what you've started here now, don't you? I'm going to just have to get my turntable up and running, find the box where DFTR is, and play it.

If you ever get a chance to see the skit (on many sites online AND on the Will Ferrel SNL [and I think the Christopher Walken SNL] DVD), it is a hoot.  As a side note, Will Ferrel reprised his role as Gene Frenkel when he was guest host last season.  Queens of the Stoneage were on and played Little Sister, which features a cowbell/woodblock.  I can't ever decide which it is; anyhoo, Will/Gene played the heck out of that cowbell when they performed Little Sister

Well, I broke down an purchased the Grado Red phono cartridge and installed it on my old Dual 721. At the moment, what's accessible of my album collection is K-Y of the LPs I bought many years ago. So, I've just listened to Kansas, Masque; Rush, 2112; and Renaissance, Live at Carnegie Hall.

God I've missed my record collection! I might just have to find some line cables long enough to hook the preamp into the computer, and rip some tracks.

Wonderful.

I've been listenting to James Blunt's "No Bravery" a lot recently. Bought the piano score and am learning to play it. Pretty high for my voice, but I can do it. My daughter is tired of hearing it, though.

I just got an iTrip radio transmitter for my iPod, so I can listen to it in my new car, which has no cassette player for my old cassette adapter (but it DOES have a CD player). Listened to Pink Floyd's "Animals" today and Michael Franks' "The Camera Never Lies" yesterday. Also recently... Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young "4 Way Street" and Lynyrd Skynyrd "1991". I have over a hundred complete albums and a lot of singles on the iPod. Need to add my Mahavishnu Orchestra CDs. Think I'll listen to Weather Report's "Mister Gone" on the way home tonight.

by a Jamaican Elvis impersonator doing classic Zeppelin songs. 

Oh yeah....  Best. Tribute band. EVAR. :mellow:

Usually, when I'm feeling down (blue, grumpy, tired, whatever), I turn to either The Blues (odd how that works) or some hard drivin' rock'n'roll. Old Deep Purple, Rush, Led Zeppelin -- even Uriah Heap. Works best at high volume, of course. God, I miss having my own place with a full-tilt stereo system.

At the risk of sounding like the old hidebound fogey I am, Emmylou Harris' Heartaches and Highways.

Yesterday (or was if Friday?) I happened to catch Walking on a Wire by Linda and Richard Thompson on the radio. It'd been so long since I'd heard it, I couldn't figure out who it was at first, but I can't think of anyone else whose guitar work sounds like Richard's, so I caught on after a bit. I can listen to Emmylou as well.

Just a while ago, driving back from the grocery, the radio was playing Echo and the Bunnymen. I'd forgotten they even existed. Danged if I can remember which track now ... oh wel.

The click wheel wasn't scrolling correctly for a while. Resetting fixed it, sometimes. Haven't had a problem with it recently, though. Maybe the latest firmware update stopped the problem.

Post by: dr_malaki on February 21, 2006, 04:31:34 pm
 Well, I haven't owned a turntable for many years, so I can't play any of my old vinyl LPs. I once briefly owned a cheap CD/tape player combo in the latter Nineties, but had to pawn it. I only had three or four CDs to play on it. I have a lot of old audiotape casettes, but no tape player inside my apartment ot play them on.

 Until February 10, when the Old Lady Downstairs, the apartment manager, died, I couldn't listen to music per se inside my apartment anyway. She was always looking for anything to turn me in to the landlord about to get me evicted for, and noise complaints were a big part of her arsenal. All the music I got was what I heard on TV, whether that be the soundtracks of movies and TV shows, or videos on VH1 or wherever. Even with the TV, I had to plug in ear phones at night, or get a noise complaint.

 There is a tape player that came with my car, a 1993 Ford Taurus. I mean it was apparently a factory option. Basically, the only place where I could listen to music for its own sake, at a volume audible to my bad ears, has been inside my moving car. This was mostly just whatever I could find on the radio which was bearable. I've used the tape player a few times, but found fiddling with it *far* more distracting than tuning the radio.

 Basically, I am not very musical. I mean records and stereo equipment have never been a spending priority for me. I kind of enjoy listening to music sometimes, when it's safe and convenient. But I am grossly unsophisticated about it. I could never afford to develop exquisite taste in music. All I know is what I like when I hear it, and since I have almost always had to make the best of a mighty poor selection, I imagine most of what I like would be sneered and laughed at.

 I never had the least interest in being any kind of musician. I never looked to music as the source of my outlook or philosphy on life. Books and movies (ands perhaps paintings) were a lot more influential on me during my formative years. When all the other kids on the block wanted to be Beatles or some kind of rock stars when the grew up, I wanted to be ... I don't quite know. It was rather vague, just a guy who could look out for himself in a nasty world, who carried a gun all the time and got away with it. This turned out to be harder than being a Beatle. But I *was* the first kid on the block to own an AR-15.

You know there are meditation workshops that put on New Age music. I went to this one tht had a week's teaching - I had already paid for it- we had sleeping bags and such. I hate Opera type music - and what did they play? The FLight of the Valkeries and Carmen Burana - all damn week. Got me so that at the end - I was sort of humming to them.

But I'm back to hating Opera. Blues. Spirituals - Jazz and Country music. Hate country music.---but, there is the "New country music." I  like that.

Love soft rock, and the Beatles, Doo Wop and  songs of the 70s - "Downtown" - "If You Are Going To San Francisco."

Love  music from Andalusia, Spanish Sephardic, Afro-Cuban, merengues,(that was the greatest gift the Africans gave the world - the syncopated rhythms - the drums that sound with the beat of the heart - get's you moving there. Although Blacks don't like to hear this- they say it's prejudice- try to listen to a minuet - you'll go to sleep. When the slaves in the Islands - added the drum beat to the minuet - they had something cooking there.

There was a time when the church allowed folk masses - but it got foks twitchy - got them rocking. the priests in the parishes - in C.America. got to complaining that worshipping wasn't supposed to be that way - 'cause we were moving. Then the  drum music stopped - and the  brasses came back.

I like any kind of world folk music, just got into Ragas, Indian Classical and Chinese - love that sing-song. I could sing along with it. I must have been a Han in one of my last lives. Love Polynesian drums.

And I finally got to learn to enjoy hip-hop and rap - because of a family member- who plays it all the time - loud!  Tunes are catchy, but NOT the words. Hip HOp has made it mainstream, with their own Awards. Love Will Smith, he's a cutie.

Jack Johnson today.

I've been hearing Tell Me Something Good by Rufus and Chaka Khan quite a bit lately.  It's grown on me, enough so that Lew and I looked it up to see who sang the song.  I dig the wahwah distorted voice part.

Been listening to Jack Johnson quite a bit myself, lately.  I found it interesting that he actually uses a ukelele as a serious instrument, and makes it sound as such, even.  But, today, I'm back to my Firefly addiction.  Listened to the soundtrack for Serenity earlier today and am now listening to the Firefly TV soundtrack, both of which finally showed up in my Amazon order yesterday (along with the Anime series "Noir" and a book on how to play guitar).

 I can and will listen to just about anything, but one of my favorite bands of all time are TISM (This Is Serious Mum):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TISM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TISM)

occasionally for their music, and always for their lyrics and perpetually irreverent attitude.

OMG!  I'm new to the forum, and had to comment on your link, even though it was posted long ago!  :)

I just clicked on the link, and am dying to hear this music, very funny stuff by the sound of it on Wiki.  Kind of a Bonzo Dog Band, Firesign Theater, Butthole Surfers sense of humor sounds like.

 Looking now on how to buy their stuff.

Thanks so much!

Merlin,
I watched some of that during the last "please send us some money" program. Not generally my kind of stuff, but it was fun and worth listening to. The Pink Floyd concert was on either just before or just after. Now THAT was some good stuff! They almost inspired me to part with a large pile of frns to get the dvd and all the extras. I actually looked for their schedule so I could watch it again (and record it).

Right now listening to Disturbed, don't know which album as it is not labelled.

I think it's become the FSPs biggest marketing tool. I don't listen as much anymore as they end up re-visiting many topics for
newer listeners. It sure beats listening to Rush or Hannity, and especially Air America.

Color me a bit jealous.  I haven't been to town in a while, so I haven't had a chance to look for it.  They showed it 4 or 5 times on our local pubic television station and I caught most of it (always seemed to miss the first quarter or so of it) every time.  I do need to try to get to town sometime next week for a couple of things, so I guess I'll have to hunt for it.

Nuggets (http://www.rhino.com/store/ProductDetail.lasso?Number=75466). What a great collection.

Quote
"I keep being drawn back to it over and over. There's so much good stuff on there." -- Andy partridge

 
It all started back in 1971 when music aficionado and future Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye lovingly compiled the now-classic (and long out-of-print) 2-LP collection called Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968 for Elektra Records.

 
During the ’80s, Rhino attempted to pick up the ball by releasing our own Nuggets volumes. Now both Rhino and Kaye combine forces to set the record straight, once and for all. Our new Nuggets box set not only contains the original Kaye-compiled album in its entirety on one disc, but completes the picture with three more CDs’ worth of essential psychedelic tunes that were left off the first time around, many of them making their digital debut.

 
Painstakingly remastered from the (mostly mono) original single mixes for best-ever sound, the box also features an extensive booklet containing both the original and new Kaye-penned liner notes, rare photos, and track-by-track annotation. It’s guaranteed to give you a “psychotic reaction”!

Having just returned from Polkastan, aka Slovenia, I have to say I'm on a polka kick at the moment. The music channel in Slovenia that has all-Slovenian music was about 98% polkas.

Flood - Tool, Undertow

Here comes the water.

All I knew and all I believed
are crumbling images
that no longer comfort me.

I scramble to reach higher ground,
some order and sanity,
or something to comfort me.

So I take what is mine,and hold what is mine,
suffocate what is mine, and bury what's mine.
Soon the water will come
and claim what is mine.
I must leave it behind,
and climb to a new place now.

This ground is not the rock I
thought it to be.

Thought I was high, and free.
I thought I was there
divine destiny.

I was wrong.
This changes everything.

The water is rising up on me.
Thought the sun would come deliver me,
but the truth has come to punish me instead.

The ground is breaking down right under me.
Cleanse and purge me
in the water.


(Like all Tool songs, this must be heard to be appreciated. The menacing, rampaging, electrifying four minute intro alone is worth a dozen songs by most modern rock acts. Maynards vocal performance invests the simple lyrics with such passion and pain that they become a moving elegy. My personal interpretation of this song is a person waking up to the fact that all they have been told is a lie. In that awful moment they wish for a catastrophe to come and wash it all away -- to purge the world.)

The following lyrics, from the Tool songs Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman) and Rosetta Stoned function as two acts in what amounts to an audio-play, a ferocious, hilarious, moving and passionate mini-opera about the utter stupidy of the 'Chosen One'/Waiting For A Hero mentality that has, in a sense, taken over the entire fucking world -- Reaching a peak now in the circus of the Demopublican run-down to who will rule us next?

This may, in fact, be the most ambitious rock song ever made. Tool confidently claims the legacy of Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer then one-ups those worthies with a work of such cynical sonic perfection that it  makes me cry with joyful appreciation to hear it.

Listen to this. If not, you are missing out, big time.
 



Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman)

Nurse: Excuse me? Doctor? Do you have a moment?

Doctor: A moment? What's the question?

Nurse: More of a situation, a gentleman in exam 3

Doctor: What's the problem?

Nurse: That is the problem, we're not sure.

Doctor: You got the chart?

Nurse: Right here.


Doctor: Not much here is there

Nurse: No doctor, no obvious physical
trauma. Vitals are stable.

Doctor: Name?

Nurse: No sir.

Doctor: Did someone drop him off? Maybe we could speak to them. Let's get some background on this fella.

Nurse: No ID. Nothing (heavy breathing in background) And he won't speak to anybody.

Doctor: Well, let's say hello.

Good Morning, I'm Dr. Wasson. How are you today? How - are - you today?! Look son, you're in a safe place. We wanna help in whatever way we can. But you need to talk to us. We can't help you otherwise. What's happened? Tell me everything.

(Growling and heavy breathing grows louder)



Rosetta Stoned

Alrighty, then ... picture this if you will.

10 to 2 AM, X, Yogi DMT, and a box of Krispy Kremes,
in my "need to know" pose, just outside of Area 51
Contemplating the whole "chosen people" thingy
when a flaming stealth banana split the sky
like one would hope but never really expect
to see in a place like this.
Cutting right angle donuts on a dime
and stopping right at my Birkenstocks,
and me yelping...

Holy f**king shit!

Then the X-Files being,
Looking like some kind of blue-green Jackie Chan
with Isabella Rossellini lips, and breath that reeked of
vanilla Chig Champa
Did a slow-mo Matrix descent
Outta the butt end of the banana vessel
And hovered above my bug-eyes, my gaping jaw,
and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip,
and all I could think was:
"I hope Uncle Martin here doesn't notice
that I pissed my f**kin' pants."

So light in his way,
Like an apparition, [that]
He had me crying out,
"F**k me
It's gotta be
the Deadhead Chemistry
The blotter got
on top of me
Got me seein' E-motherf**kin'-T!"

And after calming me down
with some orange slices
and some fetal spooning,
E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose.
He said, "You are the Chosen One,
the One who will deliver the message.
A message of hope for those who choose to hear it
and a warning for those who do not."
Me. The Chosen One?
They chose me!!!
And I didn't even graduate from f**kin' high school.

You'd better...
You'd better...
You'd better...
You'd better listen.

Then he looked right through me
With somniferous almond eyes
Don't even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is so real
Like the time Dave floated away
See, my heart is pounding
'Cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!


It was so real,
Like I woke up in Wonderland.
All sorta terrifying
I don't wanna be all alone
While I tell this story.
And can anyone tell me why
Y'all sound like Peanuts parents?
Will I ever be coming down?
This is so real
Finally, it's my lucky day
See, my heart is racing
'Cause this shit never happens to me

I can't breathe right now!

You believe me, don't you?
Please believe what I've just said!
See the Dead ain't touring
And this wasn't all in my head.
See, they took me by the hand
And invited me right in.
Then they showed me something
I don't even know where to begin.

Strapped down [to] my bed
Feet cold [and] eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed.

Hey ...

Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the One
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again ...
Typical.

Strapped down [to] my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I'm out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Sunkist and Sudafed *
Gyroscopes and infrared
Won't help, I'm brain dead
Can't remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

I can't remember what they said to me
Can't remember what they said to make me out to be a hero
Can't remember what they said

I can't listen to this one without dedicating it to every IRS agent, State Tax Commissioner, Game & Wildlife Officer, ticket writing cop, buisness license demanding busybody, and all the other blood-sucking parasitic little....


Ticks & Leeches - Tool, Lateralus


SUCK!!!
Suck and suck.
Suckin up all you can, suckin up all you can suck.
Workin up under my patience like a little tick.
Fat little parasite.

Suck me dry.
My fruit is bruised and borrowed. You thieving bastards.
You have turned my blood cold and bitter,
beat my compassion black and blue.

Hope this is what you wanted.
Hope this is what you had in mind.
Cuz this is what you're getting.
I hope you're choking. I hope you choke on this.

Taken all I can,
Taken all you can,
Taken all you can fuckin' take
Got nothing left to give to you.
Blood suckin parasitic little tick
blood suckin parasitic little tick
Take what you want and then go.

Hope this is what you wanted.
Hope this is what you had in mind.
Cuz this is what you're getting.

Suck me dry.
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you had in mind?
Cuz this this is what you're getting.
I hope you choke.

Because Björk is the only artist that really matters.  :mellow:

But, to stay on topic, right now I'm listening to Terry Riley's A Rainbow in Curved Air.

James McMurtry- Choctaw Bingo  One of the few songs the station I work at has banned. We still play it sometimes (accidentally of course... like on the 4th of July...:ph34r:) The my space page plays about 5 minutes of the song for me, then cuts off. It's a fair bit longer than that, but you can get a good taste of this story telling masterpiece. Sound like anybody you know? :laugh: I think I know 'em all!

Also Ray Wylie Hubbard has covered it recently as well on his latest album, which is also kickin'!

You can hear the song "Snake Farm" on his web site, a drive time favorite of mine to play!

They will be in MT in September (http://www.themammals.net/ci/2/Tour_Dates/) for those out that way.  If you can, I highly recommend seeing them live.  This group loves what they do and the energy they give off shows it.

Three Days Grace - Pain

"Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

You're sick of feeling numb
You're not the only one
I'll take you by the hand
And I'll show you a world that you can understand
This life is filled with hurt
When happiness doesn't work
Trust me and take my hand
When the lights go out you will understand

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Anger and agony
Are better than misery
Trust me I've got a plan
When the lights go off you will understand

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing
Rather feel pain

I know (I know I know I know I know)
That you're wounded
You know (You know you know you know you know)
That I'm here to save you
You know (You know you know you know you know)
I'm always here for you
I know (I know I know I know I know)
That you'll thank me later

Pain, without love
Pain, can't get enough
Pain, I like rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all
Pain, without love

caveat for dialup - I think both links below are flash so slow to load
Finally got Pulse (http://www.pinkfloyd.co.uk/pulse/) from the liberry. That is a must have for my own personal collection. That is a listen to/watch. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I really didn't get a chance to hear the whole thing on my surround sound system. CD #2 contains a live version of the entirety of Dark Side of the Moon.

I've also been watching/listening to Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man (http://www.leonardcohenimyourman.com/). Definitely worth checking out from BlockBuster or Netflicks if you're a Cohen fan. Not sure it is worth owning for repeated viewing, as the songs are not sung by him. However, some of the covers, especially Rufus Wainwright's version of Everybody Knows and Famous Blue Raincoat by The Handsome Family are damn fine.

Right now,  somebody's instrumental rendition of "Mercy mercy mercy"...

A little bit ago,  "Tryin' to make it real compared to what!",  which still sounds as relevant to me now as it did back when. One verse goes something like this:

"The president he's got his war,
folks don't know just what it's for
can't figure no rhyme or reason,
have one doubt -- they call it treason"

Or something like that.  First time I heard that tune I was hitchhiking across the country.  This beat-up old station wagon pulls up with these two black dudes,  and they had that in the tape player.  Les McCann and Eddie Harris,  if I'm remembering right.  Those guys passed me back a bottle of "Cold Duck" they'd just opened,  and a good time was had by all.  :-)

While listening to Folk Alley this afternoon,  I heard this:

Don't Tread On Me

© 1997 Dave Carter / Dave Carter Music (BMI)

red dog runnin down a long black road
nose to the gravel, license to travel
he don't care if it's your place or my place
whole human race got just one face in his case

up on the mountain sits a sleepy old coot
rifle on his shoulder, pistol in his boot
bottle in one hand, bible in the other
no-count rebel, baby he's my brother

ethyl in the gas tank, chicken on the farm
semper fidelis on my good right arm
Elvis blastin on the color tv
i'm a U.S. male, dontcha tread on me

johnny's in the attic writin automatic
talkin emphatic about the bureaucratic static
jungle, low-pay high-rent
Bob's on the pavement thinkin bout the government

so go where you gotta, do what you will
but it's another workin day up on capitol hill
boozin cruisin snoozin and usin
but somebody's winnin, somebody's losin

one pound of flesh and a gallon of sweat
just your daily payment on the national debt
but all God's children got a right to be free,
mister state trooper don't tread on me

seems we live and die in a crossfire hurricane
in the rain but "no pain, no gain." the sign explains
still Jesse James in his coat of flames
held up their one-way gravy train
"nothin to lose but your workin blues
and your chains," the man with no name claims

well i figure i'll make me a sign of my own
take the stars and stripes and the skull and bones
and the cross of Jesus and a golden crown
and the serpent that bites when the boot grinds down

tie it all together with a fine silk cord from
the rusty antenna of my '63 ford
now look over yonder, son, tell me whatcha see
that's the flag of freedom, dontcha tread on me

Awesome internet radio... can be taught to play nothing but swing music, if your taste is appropriately refined to instill such lessons.

Hey,  I like swing.  But I like a lot of other stuff too,  my tastes in music are pretty eclectic,  I guess you could say...

Looking at that link,  now _that_ is some seriously awesome stuff.  I had an idea,  some time ago,  so long ago that I really don't remember how long,  that it would really be pretty neat if there was some way to use a computer to indicate your responses to hearing a tune.  I notice they have their "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" and "skip" options and maybe one or two more,  but they seem a bit limited compared to what I recall envisioning,  which would be a little more fine-grained, mostly affecting the frequency with which something would pop up in terms of being played.  I probably came up with this idea in response to what radio was turning into at that point in time -- I've gone from being a person who pretty much had a radio on _all the time_ to listening rarely these days,  and even when I do I bounce around a lot between stations,  and get impatient with things like repetition and the crap they expect you to put up with to get the stuff you want out of it.  Sometimes I'll go months at a time or longer and not listen to anything at all,  at least in terms of broadcast stuff.

It never occurred to me to take that idea from back when and try to apply it to doing something over the 'net,  though.  And then there's that "genome project" -- Holy cow!  But then I don't know that I could characterize music the way they're talking about doing there.  Dunno if I could do that at all.

I've had thoughts about getting my collection (mostly vinyl and a bunch of stuff on cassette) into the computer,  and playing around a bit,  but that's nowhere near the top of my list as far as priorities are concerned.  Maybe someday I'll get back to it,  and we'll see what might come of it.  In the meantime lots of folks seem to be doing all sorts of creative things along those lines,  LAN jukeboxes and whatnot,  all sorts of stuff...

The idea of setting up my own radio stations on that rig are a bit more than I probably want to get into at this point in time, but I think I may follow up on it at some point.  Cool link,  anyhow...

I've got that one,  XPN out of Philly (Temple University,  lots of good stuff on there like the blues show tonight and Mountain Stage tomorrow if I remember) and also WRTI out of Philly,  both of which have repeaters in this area but which are easy enough to do streams on.

XPN stream (http://wxpnsc.streamguys.com/listen.pls)
WRTI stream (http://wxpnsc.streamguys.com/listen.pls)

oh yeah,  and if you're using a tabbed browser Folk Alley has a nifty page,  starts out as a popup window but you can punch this into a tab:

Folk Alley Playlist (http://www.folkalley.com/music/playlist/popup/?PHPSESSID=d8f08a7c4cb53b88758e5f98e378d311)

that gets continuously updated,  showing you what they're playing all the time and even a little bit ahead of time.  :-)

My "reception" is much better on the 'puter than over the air,  though for some reason with at least some of the streams the software,  after it's running for a few hours,  seems to get the hiccups and then I gotta stop and restart it. And the "speakers" in this laptop really suck!  So I use headphones,  but wearing them for hours on end hurts my ears after a while.

I get going on building the new workstations (shortly I hope!) I'll be trying to get a decent set of speakers going on it, too...

All the pain turns into love

We're not submissive, we're not aggressive
But they think we can't defend

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power to face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights

They're accusing, like always without knowing
What is just fiction or what is the truth
They have no mission, they have no passion
But they dare to tell us what's bad and what's good!

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power who'll face the future
Cause we are the fighters

Et tunc curat
Ludo mentis aciem,
Egestatem,
Potestatem

Drive on
And weighted down,
Always enslaved.

Since fate
Strikes down the strong man,
Everyone weep with me!

First oppresses
And then soothes
As fancy takes it;
Poverty,
Power )

We have the power who'll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our fights

Leon Russell does a kick ass medley of Jumpin' Jack Flash and Young Blood on the album.
over all just a lot of good music
Had it on vinyl. It is now melted (a long time ago) so, can I copy the CD? Did I buy the music when I bought it on vinyl or did I buy the piece of vinyl?

   Fascinating! In a roundtable discussion on NPR, including representatives from P2P and shared music sites and the RIAA this was a topic not addressed. And they really got into it too! The RIAA says they "reserve all mechanical rights" which means technically making a cassette copy of your vinyl would be illegal, however they have also stated that personal copies of legally purchased music has never been an issue for the record companies. With over 75 years of precedent, and the stated policy that such personal copies (Backup copies if you will, which enable you to safeguard your purchase of the MUSIC not the physical album) are given the "wink and nod", that would qualify as a common law right (if I was your attorney in this matter which I am definitly NOT!  :rolleyes:) in my opinion. Now since you HAD a "legal copy" (now melted) do you still have the common law right to a backup copy after the fact? It would be worth a try (IF I was a lawyer) to go that next step. If you had copied it before your copy melted, you would still (concievably) have the backup to which they would recognize your right, so what difference would it make to them financially if you made the copy AFTER your original legally purchased copy was lost. In order to enforce a copyright infringement, the plaintiff must prove that they were financially harmed by the use of their work. If you sell a copy, that is a sale they technically lost, same same if you give away or share copies. The courts recognize those as lost sales.
   My backup defense would be that you never intended to purchase a replacement copy and gained nothing you didn't have before  the melting of your copy, hence they lost nothing. What do you think Stewart? Does the defenses case hold water?
  You could also simply claim that the copy you now had was indeed a copy of the original (now melted) album you purchased, and throw the burden of proving it isn't back on the plaintiff... :mellow:




   Oh yeah, and right now I'm listening to Taj Mahal - Leaving Trunk, on a LEGALLY PURCHASED 33 1/3 rpm LP Record! (don't want to threadjack or anything like that... :laugh:)

OK poem -> song lyrics perfected to my taste.  This is what I'm listening to:

And birds sang yet as we passed on by
Our misery invisible, yet potent so
And through that forest a whisper came
The trees wove sofly round our pain
Knowing naught but giving calm
A caress to all, should one allow
How could we turn away?
And not cry with the falling rain?
Wiping tears away
Peace comes with this tranquil storm
We realize now we know
Others fallen we'll always mourn
And all seems dark when we close our eyes
The past is stone, but future yet unmarked
Despite all, here we stand
Living still with life to live
Not yet singing, but passing on by


Melody not quite perfect, but coming along nicely.  Needs some background drums... Maybe I can borrow my sister's african ones.

Found a great Widget for my computer that is a radio player. Today I listened to BBC London. It was a drive-time type show (evening over there), and really it was similar to the morning drive-time shows we have here, but it was interesting to hear them make with the usual chit-chat and light topics, along with humour (their spelling), traffic reports, etc.

I myself am annoying the folks by blasting Brendon Smalls and Dethclok's Dethalbum over and over. From the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim show Metalocalypse. Brilliant musicianship, humor and lyrics. Those without an appreciation of real symphonic metal (think early Metallica, Iron Maiden, Dio, Iced Earth) need not apply. Not only will the music probably annoy you, you won't get the sly parody element.

Sample lyrics, from "Castratikon":

She was summoned
by the ancient wizards,
to carry demon children
in the poisonous flood.

On the Day of her conception
the prophecy was written
on the scrotum of a wizard
in his testicle blood.

Run,
but you can't hide.
The hunt is on,
your life is gone
Castratikon.


 ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

That said, many of the songs are just utterly gorgeous examples of symphonic shred metal. The song Into The Water boasts music that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up, almost a sonic distillation of exaltation.

OMG, someone else knows about Coheed & Cambria? Well, actually, they're not my cup of tea, but I figured they were at least as obscure as the Penguin Cafe Orchestra.

That said, I've been stokin' the Jazz lately. Pretty much just telling Rhythmbox to shuffle play stuff in the Jazz_Swing directory tree. So I'm getting Ahmad Jamal, Antonia Jobim, Antonio Mello, Art Tatum ... I think the latest thing I told it to play deliberately was some George Shearing.

Also recently, Pylon, and Blackmore's Night.

The CMA sound guy screwed stuff up though, otherwise it would have sounded better.
Seriously, I know people who could do better in grade school. My friend Aaron was
actually doing big productions at a young age and now he does sound and lighting for
alot of the famous gospel singers. Don't believe me? Here is his website and myspace:

http://www.myspace.com/aarong87
We've been friends since 4th grade. We were in the same home-school group.

To get back to the point, either Aaron or his brother, or mine could have done better
than the guy they had for the Country Music Awards. It kinda pissed me off. Just a
little though.

I'm singing this:

Come Out Ye Black and Tans


I was born on a Dublin street where the royal drums did beat
And the loving English feet, they walked all over us,
And every single night when me Da'd come home tight
He'd invite the neighbors outside with this chorus:

    (chorus) Oh, come out you black and tans,
    Come out and fight me like a man
    Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders
    Tell her how the IRA made you run like hell away,
    From the green and lovely lanes in Killeshandra.

Come tell us how you slew
Them ol' Arabs two by two
Like the Zulus they had spears and bows and arrows,
How you bravely faced each one
With your sixteen pounder gun
And you frightened them damn natives to their marrow.

[chorus]

Come let us hear you tell
How you slandered great Parnell,
When you thought him well and truly persecuted,
Where are the sneers and jeers
That you loudly let us hear
When our heroes of sixteen were executed.

[chorus]

Oh, come out ye English Huns
Come out and fight without yer guns
Show yer wife how you won medals up in Derry
Ye Murdered Free Young Men,
And you'll do the same again
So get out and take yer bloody army with ye!

Right now is "Charge of the Light Brigade" which was preceeded by the "1812 Overture". But my favorite is "The William Tell Overture". I'm very happy with the quality of the sound. I was a bit skeptical, but no more. I think I can make some money with it.

A new video I'm about to upload onto youtube which I'm calling Otaku Radio Surfing.
It is a music montage with some pictures from 4chan and some screenshots thrown in that
are relevant to the music. If I didn't put that stuff it it would be boring to watch. Lots of
good music though. It will be up by 6AM EST.

SuperSatellite -- Our Lady Peace

I've read the bible,
I've read Dylan,
I'm reading people now
because it is much more chilling...

I sit on a satellite
with the stars made of gold
there's life through that hollow lens.

I know supersatellite
I watch the traffic,
I find the seeds

There's one man in particular
who's not what he seems
I can't focus in
on the lies in his head
he's convinced that his blood is blue
but it's red

supersatellite

Nothing dazzles me,
I am in his dreams
nothing is shocking,
transparent human
being...

And many different disks that combine nature sounds with classical music. I don't think they are made any longer, but my collection of "Nature Quest" will give me joy for a long time.

Won't bring out the Christmas music until Dec. 24. Then will listen to The Messiah and others.

I just bought Granma a Susan Boyle CD for Christmas. I don't normally buy stuff, but she hinted in no uncertain terms that she wanted it and if I didn't want to sleep outside this winter...

I also got her a Sim game where you have to manage a 50's drive in restaurant and you get to play oldies music as a reward for your hard work... She's always playing Majong, so I figured she'd like a little something to end the monotony.

Yea, Brother! She's tops around these here parts, to be sure. That song you like, "Boots", was written by Mike Beck, who was until last year playing lead guitar for them.
Rags, I'm so glad you've got some of their music. The more you listen to it, the better the odds are that some fine day you'll move yourself out here where you belong, yes? ;) It's been way too long since you were out here, Mon!

I've been out here more than ten years now. Startin' to feel like a Montanan. Of course, being friends with Montana Rose helps too. As you know, she lives right here in Willow Creek, a town of less than two hundred souls and a lot of cows, horses, dogs and katties. She met Kenny when they were both Nashville musicians far from their beloved mountains, and when they got married she tore up her RCA recording contract and they headed back home to Big Sky country. They made it back here years before I got here, and had their kids half-grown by the time I was moving into Willow Creek. Because Claudia knows I was from Memphis and north-Georgia, she sometimes drops by here with some home-made turnip greens and ham-hocks, smiling with that thousand dollar smile as she reminds me that she knows what I must be missing since moving here. Over the years she's become a true friend, and a great one. I do catch her at the Saloon sometimes, or at her house, or at other times out in one little town Saloon or another, such as at Pony, Montana. Sometimes she stops by my place here for a visit. She's always on stage, always beautiful, always full of song. Like you, Brother, I play Montana Rose songs here often. ;)

Thanks for the linky!
Salute!
Elias

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize that you were -1. At least that's what it says on your profile ^_^. I was born in 1980, so I was bombarded with propaganda- A-Team, G.I. Joe....etc.....Boy, that G.I. Joe was something else, huh. An elite American fighting force, trying to save the world from the evil terrorists (Cobra). It's almost like TPTB knew what it was going to be like decades into the future and were "conditioning" young males whom would be fighting age when the towers fell. "And now you know. And knowing is half the battle." CRAZY!

Whoa...off topic.

Right now I'm listening to Metallica- Death Magnetic. Next on the queue is Heaven and Hell- The Devil You Know. Heaven and Hell is Black Sabbath reunited with frontman Ronny James Dio. Unfortunately Dio passed away last year.

Sheep- Pink Floyd

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away;
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
You’d better watch out!
There may be dogs about
I looked over Jordan, and I’ve seen
Things are not what they seem.

That’s what you get for pretending the danger’s not real.
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel.
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes.
Now things are really what they seem.
No, this is not a bad dream.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to die
Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by.
With bright knives He releaseth my soul.
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places.
He converteth me to lamb cutlets,
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger.
When cometh the day we lowly ones,
Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of Karate,
Lo, we shall rise up,
And then we’ll make the bugger’s eyes water.

Bleating and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream.
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream.

Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead!
You better stay home
And do as you’re told.
Get out of the road if you want to grow old.

Justice Day
by Claire Wolfe

You're the boot.
Stomping on the human face forever.
You're the eye.
Staring down on everyone and ever seeing all.
You're the lie.
Twisting all our minds into your whoredom.
You are Death.
You are war.
You are slavery.
You're the law.
You're the law.
You're the law!

When laws spew like vomit from power-drunk tongues
And freedom's a lie that the old tell the young
Then out of the darkness,
The rebels arise
And on that day the Outlaw, the Outlaw will ride.

When spies and lies choke out the spirit of life
And authority scrapes like a rusted dull knife
Then out of despair
The heros will soar.
On that day the Outlaw, the Outlaw is born.

(Chorus)
Breakdown, breakdown.
Fire in the mind.
Freedom on the firing line.

When "for your own good" is a lock and a chain
And "security's” used to enslave hearts and brains
Then out of our bondage
Rebellion will fly.
On that day, the Outlaw, the Outlaw will ride.

When criminals, criminals make all the laws
Then anyone breaking them fights a just cause.
So don't obey leaders
And don't follow rules
And the Outlaws, the Outlaws are saviors, not fools.

So crush their damned spycams, rip open your cage
Let liberty loose with a howl of wild rage
Each tyrant you smash
Is a freedom you've won
And the Outlaws -- we Outlaws – put power on the run.

(Repeat chorus to fadeout)

Also, some Akeboshi...

Made "Funky Tunes", "Smooth Jazz", and "Singles" playlists from some rarely-played old tunes in my library. Rarely-played mostly because they're compressed. Still good music, though, just not as incredible sounding as my full-CD-quality and HD music.

Now playing: "So What the Fuss" by Stevie Wonder

Land once the pilgrims  pride

Don McLean "The Grave" -

The grave that they dug him had flowers
Gathered from the hillsides in bright summer colors,
And the brown earth bleached white at the edge of his gravestone.
He’s gone.

When the wars of our nation did beckon,
A man barely twenty did answer the calling.
Proud of the trust that he placed in our nation,
He’s gone,
But eternity knows him, and it knows what we’ve done.

And the rain fell like pearls on the leaves of the flowers
Leaving brown, muddy clay where the earth had been dry.
And deep in the trench he waited for hours,
As he held to his rifle and prayed not to die.

But the silence of night was shattered by fire
As guns and grenades blasted sharp through the air.
And one after another his comrades were slaughtered.
In morgue of marines, alone standing there.

He crouched ever lower, ever lower with fear.
"they can’t let me die! the can’t let me die here!
I’ll cover myself with the mud and the earth.
I’ll cover myself! I know I’m not brave!
The earth! the earth! the earth is my grave."

The grave that they dug him had flowers
Gathered from the hillsides in bright summer colors,
And the brown earth bleached white at the edge of his gravestone.
He’s gone.


I actually found it while looking for a song with the line:

"And man was banished east of Eden. See what we have lost.
For though the father sets the price, the children pay the cost."

(which turned out to be Genesis by McLean).

[This is a rant. Forgive me.]

Right now I'm listening to some rough mixes of parts that I have to play at a session tonight.

I've been hired to play on some bad albums, and this isn't the worst by far, but sometimes guys...   :BangHead:  This thing's been in the works for two years! The new engineer has it right, I think: it's not about getting it done for this guy, but about the thrill of feeling like a "studio guy" and being involved in the process. And that feeds in to a very obvious pre-existing simmering megalomania. Just makes my head spin to think of how much money this fellas going through.

Funny thing is, it's fun as hell to play this stuff the first time, but this guy thinks he's in the Richie Valance movie and he wants eight thousand perfect takes... and then "let's try the same thing with that guitar and this amp, just to see how it sounds, y'know." And since he rented five guitars for the session, we do that times five. multiplied by whimsical amplifier switch-ups.

But you see, I get paid by the hour, so it's ok that he booked ten sessions when three would have done it. But, wow. This guy is gonna drive me sane!

Yes, I really do feel much better now, thank you. ^_^

Nightcore is not so much a particular DJ or group, as it is a Meme. It may have started out as one, but now there are hundreds of people remixing other tracks and making new ones in the Nightcore style... An existing track can be "Nightcored" to make this style of music. Most Nightcore music is Candy Rave, but there are also some in the Dubstep, Electronica, Trance, and other genres.

How drastic can the change be? Well, let's use Zombie Love Song by Your Favorite Martian as an example:
Original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCVMuevcCvY (Hip-Hop x Rock... IDK)
Nightcored: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gjr7Cka4N74 (Pop-ish)

I'm listening to a bunch of new Trance genre stuff... For some reason, it seems to really get my creative juices going. This last week I've written more fiction (sci-fi and fantasy FTW) than that previous time when I began to write that Novel about the modern-day Ronin.

In fact, I've written 14x the content than is currently in RONIN (http://thementalmilitia.com/forums/index.php?topic=25928.0).

For breaks in-between, there's:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5-yKhDd64s

Beautiful - Eminem
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgT1AidzRWM&NR=1

I like the lyrics of this song (green text is the best parts) but I'm not impressed with the way it's sung:
Quote
Born This Way - Lady Gaga

Intro
It doesn't matter if you love him, or capital H-I-M
Just put your paws up
'cause you were Born This Way, Baby

Verse
My Mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir
"There's nothing wrong with lovin' who you are"
She said, "Cause he made you perfect, babe."
"So hold your head up girl and you'll go far,
Listen to me when I say"

Chorus
I'm beautiful in my way
Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way
Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way

Post-Chorus
Ooo there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
Baby I was born this way
Ooo there ain't no other way
Baby I was born this way
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way

Don't be a drag, just be a queen
Don't be a drag, just be a queen
Don't be!

Verse
Give yourself prudence
And love your friends
Subway kid, rejoice your truth

In the religion of the insecure
I must be myself, respect my youth
A different lover is not a sin
Believe capital H-I-M (hey hey hey)
I love my life I love this record and
Mi amore vole fe yah (love needs faith)
Repeat Chorus and Post-chorus

Bridge
Don't be a drag, be a queen
Whether you're broke or evergreen
You're black, white, beige chola descent
You're Lebanese, You're Orient
Whether life's disabilities
Left you outcast, bullied or teased
Rejoice and love yourself today
Cause baby you we're born this way
No matter gay, straight, or bi
Lesbian, transgendered life
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to survive
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or Orient made
I'm on the right track baby
I was born to be brave

Repeat Chorus

Outro/Refrain
I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

I was born this way hey!
I was born this way hey!
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way hey!

I'd like to do an acoustic cover of this.

Album: "Glory of Byzantium".

Imagine gregorian chant with more range, melody, and including women.

Last track was "Les Mages, Roi de Perse".  (Magai, kings of Persia)
This one is "Tous ensemble les Agnes dans le Ciel" (All of the angels in the sky).

I haven't a clue why the titles are in French when the singing is in Greek.

It's pretty, though.

Robin Trower - "What Lies Beneath"

I've been a Trower fan since the seventies, but until now, I've never found an album I liked better than the old originals ("Bridge of Sighs", "For Earth Below"). This one rocks. Mellow instrumentals. Sultry vocals. Been playing it a lot.

Bob Welch - French Kiss
Poor boy killed himself, and I forgot how good he was. :angry:

He was really talented. Those albums he made with Fleetwood Mac (been listening to them this last week) to me were the best of FM.

I saw him when he had the band Paris (and never saw anything quite like that before---it was different)....3 person band with Hunt Sales on drums (Soupy Sales boy played with Todd Rungren) and Glen Cornick (bass player from Jethro Tull). Jeeze, they were so loud my hearing has never been the same.  They were so loaded that the stage crew were throwing ice water through big fans to cool them off. Instead of throwing drum sticks into the crowd, the drummer had a box of tamborines....winging them out into the crowd  whacking people upside the head. Oh, the trails that night!  :laugh:

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/s/soundgarden/gun_20128185.html ]
I got an idea of something we can do with a gun
Sink load and fire till the empire
Reaps what they've sown
Shoot shoot shoot till their minds are open
Shoot shoot shoot till their eyes are closed
Push push push till we get some motion
Push push push till the bombs explode


I got an idea
We can do it
All on our own
Nothing to worry
Regret must weigh a ton
Kick kick kick till the laws are broken
Kick kick kick till the boots are worn
Hit hit hit till the truth is spoken
Hit hit hit till the truth is born


I got an idea of something
We can do with a gun

This is "Timshel"...

 That I was piloting a plane
 And all the passengers
 Were drunk and insane
 I crash landed
 In a Louisiana swamp
 Shot up a horde of zombies
 But I come out on top"

It's great to have an area on the forum like this one whereas folks can go to simply because it's a good place. It sure brings back a lot of good memories as I scroll through.

Anyway, I wanted to share some videos of some friends of mine from West Tennessee, who have disbanded a few years ago, but I helped getting the first good demos made (when I worked in the recording industry). I remain hopeful they can get together once again with most of the original members.

One of the first demos we did:

Then on of my favorites:

If you don't mind my asking, what exactly is that, Yuki? I'm too lazy at the present to google it; however, I feel you could provide a better answer anyway.

Bhangra is a genre of music popular in Northern India and Pakistan. It seems to combine Hip Hop, Reggae, and Hindustani Classical genres for a unique musical experience. A lot of people who listen to it start dancing or bobbing their heads to the beat without noticing or being able to stop themselves. The rhythms and melodies are intoxicating. Punjabi is the most common language that Bhangra is sung in because Bhangra started in the northwestern Indian province of Punjab. Most of the musicians of Bhangra are Sikh, but there are a few that are Muslim in Pakistan (where Bhangra has been big for the last 20 years and where Punjabi is a popular language).

This is the quote of the day for yesterday from Shabdkosh (http://www.shabdkosh.com/pa/quote_of_the_day) in English and Punjabi:

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today. - James Dean

सपने ऐसे देखें मानों आप सदा जीते रहेंगे, और जीएं ऐसे मानो आज का दिन आपके जीवन का आखिरी दिन हो। - जेम्स डीन


Several Examples of Bhangra:

JJ Cale & Eric Clapton Road to Escondido 2006

Damned good music.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBUY6Wm4Mpw


The Road to Escondido is an album by J. J. Cale and Eric Clapton. It was released on 7 November 2006. Contained on this album are the final recordings of Billy Preston, to whom the album is dedicated.

In 2004, Eric Clapton held the Crossroads Guitar Festival, a three day festival in Dallas, Texas. Among the performers was J.J. Cale, giving Clapton the opportunity to ask Cale to produce an album for him. The two started working together and eventually decided to record an album. A number of high profile musicians also agreed to work on the album, including Billy Preston, Derek Trucks, Taj Mahal, Pino Palladino, John Mayer, Steve Jordan and Doyle Bramhall II. In a coup, whether intended or not, the entire John Mayer Trio participated on this album in one capacity or another.

Escondido is a city near Cale's hometown of Valley Center, California, in San Diego County. Eric Clapton owned a mansion in Escondido in the '80s and early '90s. Cale and Clapton thought it would be a good name for the album because of their dual acquaintanceship with the city.

The album won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2008.

All songs by J. J. Cale except where noted.

00:00 "Danger" -- 5:30
05:30 "Heads in Georgia" -- 4:12
09:36 "Missing Person" -- 4:26
13:56 "When This War Is Over" -- 3:49
17:40 "Sporting Life Blues" (Brownie McGhee) -- 3:31
21:06 "Dead End Road" -- 3:30
24:30 "It's Easy" -- 4:19
28:42 "Hard to Thrill" (Eric Clapton/John Mayer) -- 5:11
33:45 "Anyway the Wind Blows" -- 3:56
37:37 "Three Little Girls" (Eric Clapton) -- 2:44
40:19 "Don't Cry Sister" -- 3:10
43:24 "Last Will and Testament" -- 3:57
47:11 "Who Am I Telling You" -- 4:08
51:11 "Ride the River" -- 4:35

Get that tune out of your head - scientists find how to get rid of earworms
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/9950143/Get-that-tune-out-of-your-head-scientists-find-how-to-get-rid-of-earworms.html

Quote
They are the songs you cannot get out of your head. Now scientists may have found a way to help anyone plagued by those annoying tunes that lodge themselves inside our heads and repeat on an endless loop.
Researchers claim the best way to stopping the phenomenon, sometimes known as earworms where snippets of a catchy song inexplicably play like a broken record in your brain is to solve some tricky anagrams.
This can force the intrusive music out of your working memory, they say, allowing it to be replaced with other more amenable thoughts.
But they also warn not to try anything too difficult as those irritating melodies may wiggle their way back into your consciousness.
For those unwilling to carry around a book of anagrams, a good novel may also do the trick.

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive


Video- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktvTqknDobU


Lyrics and interpretations- http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107859427542/#QxHUKRBWh7bYmkBq.99

I'm waking up to ash and dust,
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust,
I'm breathing in, the chemicals.
I'm breaking in, shaping up, checking out on the prison bus.
This is it, the apocalypse, whoa.

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones.
Enough to make my systems blow.
Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
Whoa, whoa, radioactive, radioactive.
Whoa, whoa, radioactive, radioactive.

I raise my flags, don my clothes,
It's a revolution I suppose.
We'll paint it red, to fit right in, whoa.
I'm breaking in, shaping up, checking out on the prison bus.
This is it, the apocalypse, whoa.

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones.
Enough to make my systems blow.
Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
Whoa, whoa, radioactive, radioactive.
Whoa, whoa, radioactive, radioactive.

All systems go, sun hasn't died.
Deep in my bones, straight from inside.

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones.
Enough to make my systems blow.
Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
Welcome to the new age, to the new age.
Whoa, whoa, radioactive, radioactive.
Whoa, whoa, radioactive, radioactive.


One of my favorite interpretations-------

Quote
Has anyone else seen the music video for this song? I think that it's about rebelling from oppressive government. The video depicts a corrupt toy-fighting arena, similar to dog fighting. It's quite Hunger Games-esque- rebelling from a totalitarian government that enjoys watching innocent citizens fight to the death. The video shows a small, tattered teddy bear fighting the powerful, undefeated purple monster. At first, the teddy bear appears to be getting destroyed, but then he randomly gets powers that enable him to defeat his opponent. He then throws the owner of the arena down the dump where they discard all of the toys. In my opinion, it's obviously symbolizing revolution. A main aspect of it is to never underestimate one's power- even though it may seem like one person can't make a change, the individual's power is greatly magnified with social movements and revolutions. We wouldn't have women's or African American voting rights to day if it weren't for the social activism that occurred to actually get those rights. So this video is a metaphor for a rebellion against oppressive and corrupt government. Does it represent the American government today? I guess we'll have to find out.

Everyone. This song is not against christians. It's about how people use the name of God for their own agenda!


So when he sings, "they know what God thinks" he means that people keep claiming that they know what God really thinks, and then they use it against whoever they dislike.
"first to throw the stone, and use his name for your own protection"

Capiche?

I hope that this will reduce the misunderstanding of the song :)

And remember, you don't have to take religion so seriously all the time, relax and enjoy a good song from a wonderful artist! Peace begins with a smile my brothers and sisters!

The new Black Sabbath album- "13"  It kicks ASS! Ozzy is back in lead vocal. It seems that Sabbath has joined the zeitgeist movement. One of the songs on the album is actually called "zeitgeist" and the first music video, "God is Dead", was created by Peter Joseph, the filmmaker that created, directed, and distributed the Zeitgeist films. Joseph used scenes from the zeitgeist movie to create the video. Here it is-

Rap with a message:

Bitch Bad by Lupe Fiasco
It's about how kids perceive song lyrics and about respecting women. The video draws a parallel between the disgraces of the past and the disgraces of the present in an attempt to jolt the African American community into acting to put a stop to the wrongs.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3m3t_PxiUI

Words I Never Said by Lupe Fiasco and Skylar Grey
I think this is the most Anarchist song ever written. Beats all the country and rock and folk songs I've heard so far.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22l1sf5JZD0

You may want to sing along:

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said
I can't take back the words I never said

I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit    <<<<< See that?
Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
How much money does it take to really make a full clip?   <<< world's largest war budget, where does it all go?
9/11, Building 7, did they really pull it?                          <<<< hints at false flag

Uh, and a bunch of other cover ups
Your child's future was the first to go with budget cuts
If you think that hurts them, wait, here comes the uppercut
The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up   <<< astute observation

Keep you at the bottom, but tease you with the upper crust
You get it, then they move it, so you never keeping up enough
If you turn on TV, all you see's a bunch of what-the-fucks
Dude is dating so-and-so, blabbering 'bout such and such         <<<< this is why I hate watching TV

And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news
And these the same people supposedly telling us the truth
Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist                           <<<<< Yes, they are.
Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit        <<<< because he's reliant o the Jewish vote

That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either           <<<< Voting is killing by proxy
I'ma part of the problem, my problem is I'm peaceful
And I believe in the people
Yeah

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said

Now we can say it ain't our fault if we never heard it
But if we know better, then we probably deserve it
Jihad is not a holy war, where's that in the worship?
Murdering is not Islam, and you are not observant

And you are not a Muslim
Israel don't take my side, 'cause look how far you've pushed them
Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the kush went
Complain about the liquor store, but what you drinking liquor for?

Complain about the gloom, but when'd you pick a broom up?
Just listening to Pac ain't gon' make it stop
A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon' make it halt
If you don't become an actor, you'll never be a factor   <<< get off your ass

Pills with million side effects, take 'em when the pain's felt   <<<|Addled people aren't able to resist
Wash them down with diet soda, killin' off your brain cells    <<<|
Crooked banks around the world would gladly give a loan today
So if you ever miss payment they can take your home away       <<<student loans are the same

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said, never said
I can't take back the words I never said

I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it
We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth    <<<If you use pgp keys and tor just to send an e-mail...
So scared of what you think of me, I'm scared of even telling you

Sometimes I'm like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
I'm locked inside a cell in me, I know that there's a jail in you
Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through

It's so loud inside my head
With words that I should have said
As I drown in my regrets
I can't take back the words I never said

"Hesitation Marks" by Nine Inch Nails (NIN).

NIN is new to me, though I'm sure I've heard some of their tunes on the radio. I got the "Audiophile Mastered Version", downloaded from their web site. Nicely recorded. Best listened to VERY LOUD with a subwoofer. Listening right now through my newest/best headphones, mostly to test out the headphones. Have already discovered that some of the cuts will be great for dancing (he said, dancing in his chair).

I have had that McMurtry album for many years (2002 it came out I believe) . Been listening to him a long time. An old song of his is called "12 O'Clock Whistle" from a good record he did "It Had To Happen" which I always liked. The guy can put some words together in a dylanesque way. Shoot I dig about all of his stuff. Of course his daddy is Larry McMurtry.

One thing about moving to the backwoods is that one rarely gets the chance to see their favorite singer-songwriters in small venues like I used to do when I lived in Fort Worth. It is nice to know that there are others who enjoy country folk music.

I've had Katyusha stuck in my head all day.

Расцветали яблони и груши,

Apple and pear trees were a-blooming,

Rastsvetali iabloni i grushi,

Поплыли туманы над рекой.

Mist (was) creeping on the river.

Poplyli tumany nad rekoj.

Выходила на берег Катюша,

Katyusha set out on the banks,

Vykhodila na bereg Katyusha,

На высокий берег на крутой.

On the steep and lofty bank.

Na vysokij bereg na krutoj.

Выходила, песню заводила

She was walking, singing a song

Vykhodila, pesniu zavodila

Про степного, сизого орла,

About a grey steppe eagle,

Pro stepnogo, sizogo orla,

Про того, которого любила,

About her true love,

Pro togo, kotorogo liubila,

Про того, чьи письма берегла.

Whose letters she was keeping.

Pro togo, chi pisma beregla.

Ой ты, песня, песенка девичья,

Oh you song! Little song of a maiden,

Oj ty, pesnia, pesenka devichia,

Ты лети за ясным солнцем вслед.

Head for the bright sun.

Ty leti za iasnym solntsem vsled.

И бойцу на дальнем пограничье

And reach for the soldier on the far-away border

I bojtsu na dalnem pograniche

От Катюши передай привет.

Along with greetings from Katyusha.

Ot Katyushi peredaj privet.

Пусть он вспомнит девушку простую,

Let him remember an ordinary girl,

Pust on vspomnit devushku prostuiu,

Пусть услышит, как она поет,

And hear how she sings,

Pust uslyshit, kak ona poet,

Пусть он землю бережет родную,

Let him preserve the Motherland,

Pust on zemliu berezhet rodnuiu,

А любовь Катюша сбережет.

Same as Katyusha preserves their love.

A liubov Katyusha sberezhet.

Renewed my interest in Lynyrd Skynyrd with purchases of their two latest CDs, "Gods & Guns" and "Last of a Dyin' Breed", and an obscure acoustic album, "Endangered Species". Expect to receive two of the CDs today and the third tomorrow. In the meantime, Amazon gave me MP3 version of two of the albums, and I found "Endangered Species" as a torrent.

They're now based at Berklee School of Music in Boston, but I'm hoping they'll play a few shows in the Berkshires this coming summer, as they did last summer.

In memory of a  dear friend who, in a younger day, spent her lunch hour going to a matinee performance by some greasy haired punk singer known as Frankie Baby. She died Tuesday night at the age of 92(July 1 she would have been 93). So for her I'm listening to Sinatra- The Colombia Years. The punk grew up.

Lyrics for the song "Defector"-

Quote
"Defector"

Free
Yeah, I'm free
From your inciting
You can't brainwash me
You've got a problem
Free
Yeah I'm free
From society
You can't control me
I'm a defector

You think you're strong and you can't be broken
But your empire is dissolving
You thought, you thought I was weak
But you got it wrong
Look into my eyes
I'm a defector

Free
Yeah, I'm free
From your inciting
You can't brainwash me
You've got a problem
Free
Yeah I'm free
From society
You can't control me
I'm a defector

Your blood is blue and your mind is turned green
And your belly is all yellow
You believe your throne is too high to be overthrown
We'll watch it get razed
By a defector

Free
Yeah, I'm free
From your inciting
You can't brainwash me
You've got a problem
Free
Yeah I'm free
From society
You can't control me
I'm a defector

I'm a defector
Free
Yeah, I'm free
From your inciting
You can't brainwash me
You've got a problem
Free
Yeah I'm free
From society
You can't control me
I'm a defector

"Here's That Rainy Day", a trombone quartet that I first played at a summer band camp after eight grade at the University of Wyoming. I found a PDF of the parts online, and multi-track recorded it in Garage Band on my Mac. Turned out pretty well. 1.5 minutes long.

If you like old School seventies rock, here is a new song (released about a year ago or so).

These Aussies started out as" The Young Lions" then became" Kings of the Sun" and toured with Kiss. Later they made an album or two as "The Rich and Famous". When the drummer Clifford Hoad could not get his brother (lead singer) Jeffrey Hoad to help revive Kings of the Sun, Clifford set about learning to play guitar, writing new songs, and building a new band called Clifford Hoads Kings of the Sun. They released the album "Rock til Ya Die" which features two drummers (because Cliff can't give up the drums and splits his time drumming and playing guitar as he also took on the lead vocals).

These guys really appreciate their fans. I have commented on their YouTube videos and received comments back from Cliff himself.

Cliff bills himself as the world's greatest unknown drummer and I have to agree.

Here is a link to "Fire on the Mountain" and it really cranks at at about 4:05, but please listen to the entire song and tell me it doesn't sound like old school rock.

https://youtu.be/3YQ2ErjncAQ

Then go to this link of their older stuff and pay close attention to Cliff on the drums, especially later in the video.

https://youtu.be/P-IUTl5xpTw

And if you can stand one more and if you like Mopars as much as the Hoad brothers,  there is "Road to Nowhere" .

https://youtu.be/Prlg4I1mYlI

Alright, I can't help myself.  "Serpentine" . The best way to describe this one I guess is Aussie Rock-a-billie. Jeffrey Hoad goes all Mick Jagger like on the stage. Cool story lyrics..."don't go near the water. The water can only kill. If the swamp don't get you, then the serpentine will" .

A friends father had that same car and he let me drive it. I let off the throttle at 125 mph and  it climbed to 130 mph before dropping back. The speedometer maxed at 150 and I think it would easily do it. His father built race cars and this car was street built.

Jake,  Some thump, thump is Ok but I prefer twang with mine, (except jerry lee of course). Heard this on the radio back in the 70's and thought, HEY, I recognize that laugh. Turned out I went to school with one of the Daredevils. Like their music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpaL-NVC-dg

A Patriot, I like New Riders of The Purple Sage but they always struck me as a little too urban. I prefer either Hank, even Hank 3. Both my Dad and I loved Johnny Cash and The Carters.

I LOVE Buffy St. Marie. Always have. Such a fine lady besides making great music. She sure has done a lot in her life.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_Sainte-Marie

A Patriot. I sure am sorry to hear of your loss and your troubles. My deepest condolences. Never having been there I really don't know what to say. except..

Hang in there Bro. It ain't over till its over! Keep your spirit up as it is amazing what the mind is capable of. I know that's easy for me to say, cause I am not in your place but I do believe in miracles. The Creator gave us a powerful mind, that we are just beginning to understand. My Prayers and Positive thoughts Sir.

Please forgive me if these suggestions are out of place.but this is what I would do and try to do daily.
Quit eating ANY sugar. Check your environment for electromagnetic radiation, using a gauss meter. Correct any alkaline/acid imbalance in your body by eating the right foods and drinking good clean water.

I am not very knowledgeable on the why's of such things but for keeping or getting healthy but I trust Nature and Natures medicine more than I trust the pharmaceutical/medical industry. Now for broken bones or an appendicitis and such I like Doctors. There are others on this forum with different opinions and knowledge. I am sure they would share their thoughts with you.

If I can help with any research or anything, even a cheerful thought, please feel free to PM me. Sounds like we are about the same age with similar backgrounds.

Peace, Love and Brotherhood.

Here is one that not many of heard. An entire LP.  was recorded in the 1980 as a soundtrack for an opera/movie, about Jesse James, believe it or not. Levon Helm, Johnny Cash, Emmy Lou and Charlie Daniels.

My favorite is a gospel that starts at 13;33 w/ Johnny, although there are many great songs on this. The whole album tells a story, about my state and area. I grew up right in the middle of this country and heard a lot of family stories.

Good song. I had that album with the dark cover with heavy texture, Young wore a ruffle gamblers shirt on the cover.
It was the steel guitar that was the hook to that song, it was Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead who played it. Later he was the first steel player with the NRPS on their first album until he was replaced by Buddy Cage who played with the Tyson's on the Ian Tyson show in Canada. That was an exceptionally good live country music program. The engineer who handled the sound on that show later would be the engineer who would record all of Emmy Lou's albums, which had such an exceptional good sound to them. I know, I had them all.

A Patriot
This is an excerpt from a letter I wrote to my Granddaughter.

"Thats right Granddaughter your Grandfather changed from a clean cut, suit and tie professional into a long haired, bearded, pot smoking, anti war activist, whose major goal was now to blow up the TV, move to the country, plant a little garden and try and find Love., as John Prine so beautifully sang. I sang the song, followed the dream and also did what I could to help end that damn stinking war.

I went to peace demonstrations, lit candles for the soldiers, prayed for their safe return, signed petitions and bought soldiers beer when I ran into them or got them high, which they accepted and thanked me, both for the beer and the high and for demonstrating against the war, which they acknowledged, at least the ones I ran into, as wrong and evil. They had lost more friends and comrades that anyone and most resented the sacrifice their generation had made, although all of us honored the memory of fallen friends. I was not one to accuse them of anything, having become so close to being one of them.

I remember one demonstration in the Midwest, where I actually rolled bullets for the revolution to stop war, as we called it. I was in a throng of fellow hippy demonstrators going to an anti-war rally, when from a partially opened door a fellow spirit went psst, Can you roll joints? I answered yes and he motioned me into a room of about 20 or 25 people, all sitting down, passing joints and actively
rolling up pot cigarettes. There were dozens of boxes of papers, bags and bags of manicured marijuana, all donated by local businesses and dealers and a frantic activity to roll thousands upon thousands of joints to be passed out at the rally.

People of all types, kinds and colors were doing their part, rolling, rolling, rolling and putting the finished bullet into cigar boxes to be shared with all who were there at the protest to Stop The War. As some left, others came in to keep the assembly line producing.

 I sat and did my part, rolling hundreds, until my fingers could do no more, then I too left and joined my fellow friends at the demonstration, to chant Hell No, We Wont Go No More War and Stop The War. Maybe a band called Country Joe and The Fish were playing their anti-war song I feel like Im fixing to die rag or maybe we were singing it. I dont remember everything Graddaughter, as you might expect, after a hour in a smoke filled room, doing my duty."

I was really into music and recording and didn't bother too much with the grass. Even now I use "Rick Simpson oil" but I take it through the back door (suppository) so I don't get paranoid, I can't stand the paranoia.

Here's one of the best live recordings with the Solomon brothers from Vanguard Records using an Ampex stereo two track recorder and two Neumann mics direct to two track at Newport in 64

A Patriot, My friend Rob, is a total EXPERT on live capture of music. Has an entire studio set up and does professional recordings. Totally understands acoustic capture, specializing in voice and string. You get to the midwest? Would love to have you meet him.

Tahn, I too have had a professional recording studio and I am just sick of the crappy music I had to record to pay for it all. I was lucky to get my money back, rap is crap, music. Never again !! I've done a lot of things, I drove an 18 wheeler for 30 years with out any accidents or moving violations... and I am tired.
I have cancer that moved to the lungs and the brain, you know. But this has been fun tonight, thank you!

Morning Tahn, you got it...

"I am Going to be a Country Girl Again" is my all time favorite Buffy album!  Every song on that album is so good, I play it over and over and I always recommend it to new Buffy fans.

Funny thing, when it first came out it was paned by the critics because of the "electric instruments " used and thought by them a sell out?  But I find it has the smoothest sound with the best Nashville players ever.

What a line up Tahn, I enjoyed everyone of those.

I was a truck driver for 30 years and never got one moving violation. I took my job serious and in my time the Patrol was pretty good to me.

One time real late at night, I was crossing west Texas and back in my day there was nothin there for miles. Just like in the song I was doing 98 MPH for a long long time, then out of nowhere I got the flashing lights!

Well, needless to say I thought my ass was had, but to my surprise this Texan Patrol officer with the strongest southern accent I ever heard, said...

"Don't you have you-rrr fuzzzzbuster on? When you-rr going through here make sure you got you-rrr fuuuzzbuster on, now get outta here, Ssson" !!!

No $hit, I was going as fast as that loaded Kenworth would go and thought I was a goner,  that's a true story. After that I learned my lesson and drove perfect for the rest of my life, until I retired...

Raising The Dead: Hear A Song From Bob Weir's First Album In A Decade

http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2016/08/18/490226714/raising-the-dead-hear-a-song-from-bob-weirs-first-album-in-a-decade

The first track to be released from the album was written in collaboration with Josh Ritter. "Only A River" is an emotional reflection on life that references the 19th-century American folk song "Shenandoah."

Jerry Garcia & David Grisman - A Shenandoah

I actually have this one on a CD. As a Southerner and an old Hippy, I love this. More emotion than most.

The Best of NatureQuest. From a set of wonderful CD recordings I bought about 25 years ago. Classical music mixed with nature sounds like rain, ocean waves, wind and thunder...

So happy to be able to hear them again. :)

I found some on line too! Some I'd never heard before. This is marvelous!

Metallica's new tune. It rocks pretty hard. Reminds me of "Garage Days".

I'm pretty sure that it's about the 2016 presidential election.

Scott D. Davis playing Metallica songs on the piano. No singing, no accompaniment, just piano. It is surprisingly soothing. I have been listening to it as background noise whilst surfing the interwebs.

"So here's how I'm going to use MY voice. I'm going to vote for Hillary Clinton." -- Katy Perry

I stopped there. I disagree with the politics of lots of entertainers. I also don't care what they think, since most of them DON'T think. I want them to look good, sing sweetly, and emote effectively. That's all I care about from them. I use their talents to improve my life. And ignore the rest.

YMMV.

YMMV.
When I disagree with entertainers, I boycott them. For instance, Liam Neeson is publicly anti-gun, even though almost every single one of his movies features him using one. Therefore, I refuse to support him in any way, which includes watching any movie that he has stared in. IMHO, so-called "celebrities" (businesses as well) should keep their opinions to themselves. Especially when that opinion has something to do with hot button issues such as politics or religion. That is, if they want to keep their current fan/customer base anyways.

This strategy has also hurt Target and Starbucks in recent months. Both businesses alienated a large swath of their customers and suffered the consequences of said customers refusing to do business with them.

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/starbucks-boycott-like-most-others-wont-hurt-it-in-the-long-term-2017-02-03
 
Most people are stupid and forgetful, so this strategy doesn't always work in the long term and sometimes even backfires on the protesters (Chick fil a for example). It can however, have devastating effects in the short term. 40% stock downturns as well as CEO's stepping down are recent examples of that.

I agree though.....YMMV

I'm not sure why but recently this song has popped back into my life:

Elvira by the Oak Ridge Boys

"Giddyup, ahoompapaoompapah mow mow!"

I remember listening to this as a kid.  I find myself drawn to these older songs more and more lately.  (apologies to those that think this song isn't THAT old...)   :wub:

what probably influenced me the most was the shooting instructor in fourth grade, he was a WW2 veteran and gave me a copy of To Hell and Back.   That might cause accusations of the school teacher in   All Quiet on the Western Front, it wasn't that way at all though. And then there was always the propaganda film Sands of Iwo Jima.  Louis L'amour helped out some too.

None of which I will repudiate now.

Even so.

 Best anti war book- Good bye to All That by Robert Graves.  Honorable mention, the Forgotten Soldier.

Best anti war movie besides the obvious ones - The Americanization of Emily
