What I'm listening to now....
« on: May 10, 2007, 09:34:23 PM »
These days it's not often that one CD or album (to go back the days of my youth) stays in or on my player for longer than one listen then on to the next thing. Once in awhile something will grab me and hold me for a long time.
My Ipod has made music interchangeable. I'll be listening to dance/techno, then switch to corn pone country, then off to some other country with some exotic flavor. Not one CD or artist stays for longer than a day or two.
My first introduction to Pizzicato Five lasted 3 months. I listened to Happy End of the World everyday until I got seriously sick of it. That got me into Cornelius and his Fantasia lasted 6 months. Recently Manu Chau took center stage for quite awhile. At least a month or two.
Still, frequently, I get a taste of something from the past and have to charge through that discography. I hear a U-2 song and simply had to listen to Unforgetable Fire and War again. A recent Rush discussion had me playing them for a day. Did you know they have a new CD out? Pretty solid Rush.
So what am I playing now?
I just got a copy of the newest Buddha Bar collection. Buddha Bar IX. This is a return to past form. DJ Ravin retakes the reigns and spins an exotic web of beautiful chill out bliss with interesting spicey stuff thrown in. Buddha Bar hasn't been this good since Vol 4, five or six years ago. I think Ravin also mixed that one too.
Tough to find as it's only released in Europe, but should show up in US store the next month or so. Worth picking up. I think this one has some staying power.

Welcome back BB!  Where you been?  My buddies and I started listening to Metallica back in High School and have been a big fan ever since!   What about Megadeth?

It's a heavy metal world, and I'm just forced to live in it. ;>)

... and I can handle metal, for instance, I have respect for Metallica (espcially the tennis playing Ulrich), and I think Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast is classic.
I generally prefer something that provides something of interest. A surprise turn of a musical phrase so to speak. Metal just doesn't do that. For a long time Rap (or hip hop) didn't do that either, though it was born of that kind of thing, from people experimenting with beats and turntables. Some of the Ninja Tune stuff is legendary.

While talking about Metallica, I had totally forgotten the irony that the drummer, Lars Ulrich, was supposedly a phenomenal junior player!  He is proly a 5.0-5.5 or some crazy s**te like that!   :uh:

Probably still have that issue in a closet. That and the one that shows a 15 or 16 year old Andre Aggasi combing his long two toned locks, and touting him as the next big thing in tennis. How'd that work out?

I like almost any kind of music as long as it is good. I like a lot of indie rock, some non mainstream rap (besides Kanye West!), some alternative country, some jazz, some soul. And all the rest that isn't exactly a category.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.

Before a match there is nothing better than Queen's "We Will Rock You", or "Another One Bites the Dust".  I also like the Black Eyed Peas "Let's Get it Started."
