I'm in love again, and I love love love it.... [Jan. 28th, 2015|10:44 am]

Listen to that. Seriously. This is perhaps the finest cover of this song I've heard since Peggy Lee sang it with Benny Goodman. Yes. IT'S THAT GOOD!!!!

Also: Polka Dots and Moonbeams

Jitterbug Waltz

Two Across

If I had minions, they would be fetching this woman right now to sing for me as I snack on grapes and an oaky Chardonnay. Or, y'know, at least buy me all her discs. Did I know about her before? I can't recall, but it's hard to think I'd never heard her until now.

haunted by the ghosts.... [Jan. 2nd, 2015|10:17 am]
So I log onto youtube and find this suggested for me:

I still remember every riff.

The first side is mostly regular punk stuff, but side two gets a little more experimental, sometimes even melodic! I still have this platter somewhere.

Check out "An Object" by Wounds, always a favorite of mine. Actually, this is a really strong comp, so it's hard to go wrong, though Half Japanese is kind of rough going. (HA! Just heard "Slave to My Dick," a song containing a deep truth to a virginal teenage boy.)

And speaking of:

Virginity, a dilemma of anatomy
Social epidemic
Nothing but a lack of human emotion

Bad lyrics and fuzzy guitars--sounds like pop music to me.

thesheepthatwentmooo's comment on Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" video is one of the funniest things I've seen all year.


I know what you're saying. You're saying, "vox [because you're all thinking about me, I know you are, I can feel your thoughts], what the hell are you doing watching Taylor Swift videos?"

All I can say is that it's a remarkably catchy pop song. And I might have a bit of early dementia going on...so there's that, too. And am I alone in thinking that she's sexier when she's playing insane? Because she is.

I don't know how many different versions of "Autumn Leaves" I've heard. This is a favorite.

ETA: Just found this, too--Kenny Burrell-"Midnight Blue"-whole album

You have no idea how many spins this disc got on my old turntable.

I don't want to sound like that guy. You know that guy, the unbearably hip one who's really a doofus? I can't be that guy, mostly because I'm a big old geek (I am currently enamored with a reality show called "The Quest," which is one of the geekiest things ever produced by human hands).

Still, I have to say...um...this Internet thing. It's kind of played, isn't it? It's kind of like going to a club you loved at one point and looking around and finding Jimmy Fallon there. You know you'd never, but never EVER, be going back to that club, even if your friends were still there, and the music was still good, and the bartender had a very heavy hand.

Yes, you may argue with the metaphor. The Internet isn't a club, you will say, it's a tool. I get that, and I think I'm mostly talking about the more popular social media aspects of the Net, but still. Oh, and can we all stop saying "social media" and call them "marketing sites" from now on?

Anyway, last I heard LJ's policy was that if someone hadn't logged into his account for a year, it would be deleted, so if this journal is ever deleted, you'll know I'm no longer bound to this semi-ridiculous mortal coil, which is the natural progression of all things.

Huh, I came here to write a post about identity and the entropy of black holes (area, not volume, go figure), but something else came uninvited to the party. Isn't that always the way?

Take care, Internet.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

I don't think anyone comes to this little corner of the Web anymore, and I'm thinking that this journal may not be updated much anymore, so if I'm not around, remember that I love you. Yes, I mean YOU. ^_^

Take care, anyone who comes across this post.

...but I'm doin' much better now. [Sep. 4th, 2013|11:30 am]

I was looking for her take on "A Sunday Kind of Love," but this suffices quite nicely.

Also, last week Marian McPartland passed away. I listened to her show "Piano Jazz" quite a bit, and she introduced me to a lot of really great music. She was pretty goddamned fantastic.

Things are starting to look kind of obviously messed up, no? [Aug. 27th, 2013|02:33 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , ]

Three from CD that really kind of exemplify much of what's just horrible about the USA today.

Hammer Out Love: Walker's Capitol Police Are Getting (Way More) Violent -- This one has a really nice video attached showing the cops being thugs. This world is run by the men with the guns, folks. Never forget that.

Feeding the Homeless Is Now An Arrestable Offense -- Actually, it has been for a while, but it always makes a good headline. Maybe the "Christian" conservatives will stop talking about the homosexual threat and start talking about this attack on Christian values? Nah, that won't sell ad time on AM radio.

Obama Gives Bush "Absolute Immunity" For Everything -- Meanwhile, the real criminals are smugly laughing at all of this.

Gawd Bless Amurika!

Oh, and thanks for reading my journal, NSA. It's good to have an audience. ^_^
