Right now I'm listening to NOTHING.  The sound of silence.   :) :) :)

Lovely.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

I'm listening to the pitter patter of little feet

my son is up for his blood sugar check/midnight snack.  it's kind of our routine.  since i am a night owl.  he get s his snack and then he eats it all cuddled up in bed between me and my wife and crunches loudly in my ear  on one level it's like.... go to bed kid,

but on another level, it won't be long before he's too big to fit in the bed, haha

we does insulin and he usually falls asleep between us and my wife carries him to his room or forgets to and he just wakes up in our bed...except usually in a wildly different position than he was when h efell asleep, usually like upside down with his foot in my face

Something good for this thread which has just turned 100.


Biber's upped his game, that was a lot better than his last single!

(Profuse apologies if anyone has already succumbed to the irresistible temptation of such a crappy joke).  :D

Lol, just seeing this.   ;D

"The sneakiness of prigs, the conventicle secrecy, gloomy concepts like hell, like sacrifice of the guiltless, like unio mystica in drinking blood; above all, the slowly fanned fire of revenge, of chandala revenge—all that is what became master over Rome."

Your tastes make no sense, PdR.  Eliot, yes, but Jane's Addiction is like the Charles Bukowski of music.

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends

Not with a bang but a stinker
IF I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

"You try so hard but you don't understand."

That's a bizarre comparison.  Jane's Addiction had a sprawl and a majesty to their music.  Bukowski was sloppy.  Early Nick Cave is more like the Bukowski of music.  You know who loved Jane's?  Your old boy devotedknuckles.  I believe they were his favorite band.  He had good taste, I'll say that much for him.  Not all the time, but sometimes.  I mean, he probably liked Bukowski too.

I was going to make the dk connection in my last post.  I think it justifies my comparison.  If there were ever a trad Bukowski, dk was he.  And dk loved Jane's Addiction.

I'm inclined to find something that we both find quite agreeable musically.  How do you feel about the following?

I like them okay, but their style was always a little too funked-up and nerdy for me.  For your delectation, here is a picture of, unsurprisingly, David Byrne and (yup) Sufjan Stevens onstage together.

You'd have to sing them in a soft, cloying, cutesy-wispy voice, and have your boppy/sad instrumentations on pianos, acoustic guitars, and ukeleles.  Because you wouldn't be able to imitate the original Jane's Addiction.
