PostPosted: Sun Nov 16, 2003 11:54 am    Post subject: Grosse Pointe Blank Reply with quote

Both Grosse Pointe Blank soundtracks were fantastic, but as that is also my favoritist movie in the whole of ever, I may be biased a smidge.

Also in the department of biased, I've been listening to a lot of the new album my friend Minga just put out. Or, wait, is putting out in February now that I think about it. I have a promotional copy so I could put her website together. Anyway, it's good nocturnal neo-lounge jazz with a lemon spritz. Or something.

After I swore off most sountracks for several years, a few people finally convinced me to listen to the Moulin Rouge soundtrack and I find that I quite like most of it. Haven't seen the movie, though, but the music is pretty entertaining.

I fear you are too.

Gareis, if anyone else wonders, is a close friend of mine. I introduced him to the glory of Scott McCloud.

Totally off-topic: Should "boing-boing" become a verb like "slash-dot"?

"Poing" is a verb with a meaning derived onomatopoeically from the same sound as "boing". So I take it you're referring to Boing-Boing, the directory of wonderful things. What meaning would you give this new word?

Poing!

Rippy the Hippy is at this very moment listening to a new take on the old (because he doesn't like much that's new)...the newly released and remastered compilation, The Very Best of the Grateful Dead. I picked it up mainly because all but one (Blues For Allah) of the Dead CDs I own are live recordings, and the rest of the Dead studio albums I own are all on venerable vynil. But it came with a nice bonus inside, especially if you're a fan of Silver Age Marvel Comics, like myself.

This trading card...
Prepare to die, Dr. Richards!

At first I thought I might have been at this show, since I tried to catch them every time they came to New York metropolitan area, but I couldn't find the ticket stubb in my collection. The latest Dead stubb I could find was from the same venue, but a year earlier - Giant Stadium, Aug. 4 1994.

Incedentally, Traffic (who re-united that year) was the opening act for that '94 show. It just so happens I picked up three Traffic re-issues in the same order, in the never ending quest to replace my rather large LP collection with CD. Oh, what a rock star I could have been, if I had been blessed with a voice like Steve Winwood's.

I said Boing. Yeah, that directory. Well, to "slash-dot" means to thrust something/one into their 15 minutes by posting them on Slashdot's high-profile news list. So to Boing-Boing would be the same thing. I've read people who said they'd been Gawkered, but I think being Boing-Boinged is tres chic.

Coolest music-related link I've run across in some time. A particularly entertaining one is the 'Crazy Little Fool" found on this page.

I don't know much about music at all. Sadly I never listened to any music at all (except my father's Classical music) until Napster came along, and even then I didn't know what to look for. BUT I'M DIFFERENT NOW. actually, even now I still don't know much about American music, new or old, but anyway, here's my list. hope I'm not too shallow in taste!

I love Pizzicato Five. I'm addicted.
TMBG and Weird Al are great, of course
The Planet Smashers - a Canadian ska band
Tomoyasu Hotei
Shpongle - (AUGH MY HEAD!)
B'z, The Pillows, Rip Slyme, Porno Graffiti, Globe - I don't think anyone else here would know of them, but I like em.
and about a thousand mp3s from OverClocked Remix, since it's free and legal. and I like videogame music. I'm a videogame freak?! There's a lot of interpretations and musical style variations of background tunes.
and "cranky", some Japanese techno artist who puts music up on his site

Rollins Band
TMBG
R.E.M.

You should also check out a friend of mine Ari Hest, from NYC, next time he's in your area.

I'm not particularly into lists, but this evening, I feel like giving it a try. So, for what it's worth, here's what I've got next to my desk right now:

- Jiang' ai (Wang Fei / Faye Wong's latest double album: despite her giving up to overformatted electro-pop, I still have a particular weakness for A Fei; expectedly, though, what I listen to most likely is the CD 2, which contains a great selection of her old hits),

- Steal This Double Album by The Coup (reconciled me with rap music: Boots Riley is a smiling Huey Freeman),

- Enemy Of The Enemy by Asian Dub Foundation ("conscious" ragga, "live and direct from London, Absurdistan").

That's it for now. Last year, I listened a lot toEmilie Simon's eponymous first album. Electro is far from being my favourite type, but that one really hooked me up, especially "To The Dancers In The Rain" (one of the songs in English). You can listen to free samples of all of the album's songs (less her humorous cover of Iggy Pop's "I Wanna Be Your Dog") on her page at the Universal Music website (click on "Ecouter").

No one has mentioned the Smashing Pumpkins, and I am saddened. I am th type to be unlucky and lucky at the same time, as all of my 42 Pumpkin's CD's were stolen from my car weeks after I had imported all of the songs into iTunes. Ugh?

More music that Ben can work to:

Herbie Hancock (all must listen to the "Headhunters" album)
Cake
Radiohead
Muse (think Radiohead, but louder)
Scott Joplin
Miles Davis
Zwan (for only having one CD, there sure are 70+ Zwan songs...)
Wayne Shorter

Jazz and ragtime? sometimes, you want fewer words and more music. It cuts down on the whole interpetation thing.

Coolness. I get the impression that the webcomics community still harbors some kind of latent animosity toward the superhero dominated print market, but the uninhibited sense of adventure (note: adventure, not the uninhibited angst that dominates most of the current genre) those old comics embody will always have a place at my table. Though I have to own to preferring funky Bronze Age comics and pulp era news strips like Flash Gordon and Tarzan. That particular image looks more recent than Silver Age. Less Kirby, more Larsen. Still, very cool.

Yeah, PG's new CD is in my car right now. "Signal To Noise" is a favorite from that, as is... well, most of the rest of the album, actually.

But there're two album-length projects PG did between "Us" and "Up" that not many people know about. The first is OVO: The Millennium Show, available in England, but not in the US, which may appeal more to general PG fans, because it's similar in tone to "Us." He even included two tracks from this in the setlist for his recent tour (or, at least, he did when I saw the show). PG only sings on a couple of the songs, but don't let that throw you- the music is pure Gabriel.

For the more hard-cord fans (who probably already know about this), the second is the soundrack to Rabbit-Proof Fence, [url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000647KC/ref=pd_bxgy_text_1/002-4893715-9225622?v=glance&s=music&st=*]Long Walk Home[/url], which is similar in nature to Passion or Birdy.

All are recommended.

I'd heard "Rythm Thief" a while ago and thought maybe it was them but didn't have it confirmed until now. If you recommend L'il Beethoven, we might very well get it soon. Thanks!


You may wish to let Ivy know that Sparks is playing some L'il Beethoven this April.

Genius drummer/percussionist has a new CD. MP3's can be found here:

http://www.susieibarra.com/index.htm

Her new one, Folkloriko, is a find, and not just for card-carrying jazz snobs like Yours Truly.

Cheers.

PostPosted: Sun Aug 29, 2004 1:01 pm    Post subject: Piano Reply with quote

For those who like the sound of a piano, I just this last week started a music blog inspired in part by the Morning Improv, in which I'm posting two new recordings every week, a mixture of polished compositions and complete improvs.

http://innig.net/music/inthehands/

There are two recordings up now, another on Tuesday ... and, in theory, there will be 104 by this time next year....

I always admired Scott McC (and many other web comic artists, for that matter) for just getting stuff out there, even when it's complete improvisation. IMO, the music community is miles behind the comics community in having a thriving online community.

Grateful Dead, eh?

I guess the plan is to bore the Fantastic Four to death with six hours of Garcia playing scales.

And Johnny Cash still has a home in my CD player.
