aaaaawwwwwwwgggghhhhh!! too much music!


16 Ago 2005, 14:04

i've been pretty much letting winamp spin thru randomly playing songs and rediscovering all kinds of gems i'd nearly forgotten i owned and it's made me all warm and gooey for more music that i either still need to rip from my vinyl collection or go out and buy or whatever.

but point is it's made me damp for about a billion MORE records. there is not time enough in life to pay proper attention to music. i want to have more sets of ears, more ability to listen to Verdi and Gershwin and Cab Calloway and Miles Davis and Charlie Parker and Thelonius MonkTsaichovsky and Mozart and Bach and Beethoven and Robert Gordon and Little Richard and Gene Vincent and Robert Johnson and Big Momma Thornton and Slade and Chuck Berry and James Brown and Nina Simone and Art Blakey and P.I.L. and N.W.A. and Schooly D and P J Harvey and Patti Smith and Ella Fitzgerald .... and ....

    The longer such a list gets, the less it means. Like Hey, here's my favourite 1000 artists! I agree with a8o.

    oh okay. it has nothing to do with your age. but i can't be responsible for your not being able to take it in. the list is far briefer than the artists rushing through my head at the time i wrote it. and i haven't gone back to add more. but what the hell, people. don't look at it if you don't care to... your looking at things you don't like can hardly be my problem, either.

    if one single person likes this journal, please step forward.

    oh thank you so bloody much linkoping for your snarky little snark. just as you're entitled to your benighted and blinkered opinion, i'm entitled to my oh-so-enlightened and open-minded opinion. but i'm feeling too polite to tell you what i think of you just at the moment. maybe it's that your picture makes you look very like two dear middle-aged lesbian friends of mine that's why i don't want to uncork on you right now.

    yeah lesbians!^^ no offense but I was just wondering if anyone other than the author liked these kind of journals. I just happen to have reason to believe that is not the case.

  • tarbox

    it may be that very few do, but some of the posters here like it, or so they say. i dvnno. i can't be bothered.

  • Linkoping

    like urezlover and Kimpaz? I find their posts highly ironic.

    26 Oct 2005, 23:08
  • tarbox

    still dunno. dunno. dunno. maybe you're right. maybe everyone hates it. still can't be bothered.

    I'm going to make one of those albums I own lists and post it here...with connections. Then you people are really going to have something to bitch about.
