The insanity of lyric comprehension

The talking heads would write lyrics on strips of paper and randomly put them together, thus some of the lyrical nonsense it led to, but part of the bands charm. I played “Let Me” on Saturday night for a couple (because it’s “their” song) and later they remarked how odd it was that “their” song […]

This or that?

I stopped competing in the music world a long time ago (think music awards for genres and the like). Why do it when I can spend my energy listening to the people who listen to me and tell me what they think. (Steve makes a fine example below) Evan, Finally, belatedly downloaded and listened to the […]

Mine would be black

We have so many ways of communicating now and such a high rate of misunderstanding.  It’s a text, an instagram, a reply to a Facebook comment, email and IM, and without a solid understanding who’s at the other end it can get challenging when gauging humor.

Out Of Control

When the internet goes down

Losing power for a day or two always reminds me how much we’re connected to the “brain” (internet).  I’ve got digital recorders, cassettes, mostly CD’s, 3? iPods, 2 laptops, all with music.   I am also on Spotify but I’m just getting around to it. I sent an mp3 to a fan who always listens […]

“Let’s Burn Everything”

A song title as a metaphor for starting over. Many things that worked before, aren’t working anymore.  This seems to me to be a unanimous decision. There are systems in place, all kinds, political, financial, and “personal belief systems” that simply don’t work in the new world. And, “We’re all on our way somewhere” so […]
