Liza, That song you mentioned a while back (you asked if you were crazy to like it), the band's name escapes me, well it's on the radio all the time now and now I like it. (They remind me of Meatloaf, and the song's about Luv, of course.)

Is that the vaguest messsage ever or what?
It was not a new dish, as I recognised my tooth marks. Wilfrid

ARRGh. If I had my brain I'd know what you're talking about. But I don't.
But I'm glad you like the song. Whatever it is!
“And another thing. You don't have to "move on" either. Not until you're ready. People say, Oh, you should be grateful. They say, Oh, it's time for you to move on. I'm like, What are you, a cop with a nightstick? I'll move on when I'm done playing the blues on my harmonica, thank you very much.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

You don't have to move on until you're ready.”

Wasn't it that long-haired glam/heavy/retro rock band whose video I can't seem to avoid? Called something like The Dark or The Darkness?

The Darkness: I believe in a thing called Love

A huge hit in the UK last year

They have had to de-campify their act a bit for the US market where people don't like their Rawk N' Roll with any hint of irony

The husband is convinced the baby liked Aphex Twin. On the other hand, I think he likes the MJQ & Johnny Hodges.

Oh the joys of parenthood - my munchkin said "Ramones" for the first time. She also managed to write my name, but the "Ramones" thing was really exciting.

Soon I expect I'll be able to get her to say "Sex Pistols".

Parsifal-Levine and Bayreuther Festspiele, 1985

The Prelude still amazes me.

"Behold, I teach you the ubermunch. The ubermunch is the meaning of the earth. Let your will say: the ubermunch shall be the meaning of the earth!" -Fritzy N.

"Chicago, The Blues Today, Vol. 1" A great disk with which to practice the harmonica. One of the few I rarely put away.
They're really rockin' on Bandstand.

last night went through 4 j.j.cale cds. it's so straight pure plain basical music. unadorned. even though he's just saying the same thing in 100 slightly different ways.

i've learned that infants prefer mozart to bach. and the boys (12/14) like the doors :blink:

A craving for early Springsteen - dunno why - led me to purchase The Wild, The Thingy and the E-Street Shuffle. Or whatever. Quite wakes you up in the morning, I must say.

A moment ago: Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time.

Now Wire live at Metro, Chicago, 14th Sept, 2002. This is a free CD one gets for purchasing Read and Burn 01 from their website.

Been following this young lady (really a young *girl*) since summer 03. Her career seems about to break through into the big leagues. There're some mp3s on the site.

edit: BTW; McKay is pronounced McKai (rhymes with tie)

a chum of mine used to be in Scrittti Politti and is now working with Green again, so sent me some rather fun demos

Prompted me to go and listen to the first three albums in heavy rotation. The Sweetest Girl remains one of the great songs about Heroin ( Heroin being the first, natch ) and how can you not love a person who writes about Jacques Derrida and write such lines as

"to err is to be human, to forgive is too divine
I was like an industry, depressed and in decline"
