music: listening to Jon Brion with my headphones .... while e-mailing friends back (yes, i actually have a few left)
most songs sound better with headphones on. lately i've been really listening to music, as in every note, every hand clap, every guitar lick, every drum beat etc... it's pretty cool.
i've e-mailed "blogspot support" so they can help with getting music up on my site. if that doesn't work, i was told i can sign up with earthlink and go from there. i'd much rather find a free music storage place for my mp3 - in order to get them to play on my site.
before i forget..... i picked up the new Mojo magazine (the 150 greatest rock lists ever) and what i've read so far, it's pretty great.
for example one list was... 10 people who left bands just before they became famous (poor chad channing - nirvana) (jeff bradford - stones) i bet these guys were kicking themselves!!
another list.... 10 great double bills you can pretend you saw (rolling stones with little richard 1963) get back! oh and (nirvana with sonic youth 1991) i was there! and lets not forget (GNR with the crue) i think i was there, i'll have to check my ticket book.
last list that i will list.... 10 rock stars that wish they were keith richards (chrissie hynde, joe perry, joan jett, slash, all of motley crue)
OK now go buy it!
it was a beautiful day today! The weather was perfect. I love when it's partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain! except it never (well hardly ever) rains here.
I look forward to thunder and lightning (just so i don't get hit).
on days like today.... i get giddy. i was taking a walk around my building on my break and i was cracking myself up with the thoughts in my head.
sometimes my thoughts come and go quickly as a person who has had about 10 cups of coffee. (i don't drink coffee)
- i just don't feel it anymore or i would type some of those thoughts out. hmmmm.
it's midnight, i'm listening to "You Made the Girl" or "Sun Go Down" whatever you want to call the song by Jon Brion and it's amazing! This is the one that can go on for 40 minutes, it's got that drone feel to it with lots of guitars. Josh Klinghoffer and Jon did this song together once at the largo and i seriously was in tears by the time it was finished - it was so f'ing beautiful! The most amazing piece of music that Jon has ever written to date.i better get to sleep...... g'nite!
