Music: Jeff Buckley - Grace
Today (for me anyway) is perfect for listening to GRACE by Jeff Buckley. This CD makes me cry everytime I hear it. It's both Beautiful and Dark. This is how I feel today beautiful and dark. ha ha. I'm just getting over from being sick and I have that 'getting stronger' feeling. I love it. I have this strange and wonderful energy. I'm at work and I'm actually working as in... doing 4 things at once. I'm feeling good each time I get closer to finishing each project.
Back to Jeff Buckley. I'm listening while at work thru ear-pods and it's LOUD. so, if the phone rings I can't hear it unless I happen to look at it and notice the light. I love how you can hear every piece of music thru headphones. The breathing, his hand sliding up and down the guitar - god, that turns me on, and every pitch of the vocals which can be a little overwhelming at times. And my favorite is on Dream Brother about 2 minutes into the song the guitar part when the music stops for a split second and all you can hear is the slide.
You can almost see the music if you close your eyes and listen.
I love October!
The weather is the best.
There are so many CD's that I need to buy - it's not even funny.
(not that it would be anyway)
I didn't make it to see Jason Falkner at the Derby last week or to see Supergrass for free at Amoeba as I wanted to. The only show I'm going to see this week-so far - is on Wednesday. Sabrosa Purr with Sons and Lovers, two bands that I absolutely believe in and love so much. They will be at the Silverlake Lounge on October 5th, this Wednesday. Actually Sabrosa Purr have a Residency there every Wednesday in October.
This Saturday is Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at the Henry Fonda Theatre but I haven't bought a ticket yet. I need to hear the CD a few more times first. I've seen them many times before but they took this different direction with this new CD that I'm just not that sure of yet. Perhaps it's one of those that has to grow on me before I 'get it'.
I'm looking forward to hearing the new project by Jack White and Brendan Benson called Racountours. Someone mentioned that it will give you that feeling like when you first heard "Nevermind". Now that's a lot to live up to, I must say. My friends and I were huge and I mean HUGE Nirvana fans! We had bootlegs and even went to the video shoot for "smells like teen spirit". I miss that band, such good times!
Did anyone catch Bob Dylans 'No direction home'? I only caught the first one. I totally forgot about part 2. I'll have to get the DVD. The footage of the old photos is well worth it alone for me. It was interesting to see all the bands that influenced Bob and to hear him in the interviews.
Over this past weekend, although I was sick as a dog I still went to the movies with some friends to see ' Corpse Bride'..... I really wished I'd have stayed home in bed. That movie bored me to tears. I appreciated it for what it was though. I'm not a huge fan of musicals at all. I love music but just don't want to see dancing and singing on the movie screen, I guess. We saw the movie in Long Beach at the Pike. I've always wanted to go on the farris wheel, so we did. It was cool but probably not such a good idea for me being sick and all. I stayed in bed until about 3 in the afternoon on Sunday.
I watched a few netflix movies lately: Kinsey, House of 1,000 corpses (no wonder why people are afraid of clowns!), if lucy fell, dummy (adrian is amazing!) and we don't live here anymore (not so good - just kind of blah).
ok, back to work.
