Merry Xmas everyone!
I wanted to find a song that somehow encapsulated the feelings of people estranged from loved ones.
But that was a bit hard.
So I opened my music player and searched for “love”.
Which brought me this lovely song by Bjork, a song that suggests (although it may feel different) Love is all around, although maybe not from the…[Read more]
Peter Green is someone who I don’t know enough about.
Realising that there are a multitude of artists who held him in high regard, it just makes me realise I have to visit his work.
BB King said generous things about his tone which is kinda incredible and though I don’t know what BB King was responding to, here is Peter Green…[Read more]
Hi @blenkinsopthebrave – yes I believe I did but it was a while ago.
Did I not already mention them and Picard and thank you for the advice??
Blimey – I’m bad if not.
Now then, I’d have to dig out my notes about the episodes though (and with all the pre-moving malarky I might’ve ermmm… ‘cleaned them up’)
So, been watching Devs (an Alex Garland TV series).
Kinda ‘cold’ in a way, but also austere/ beautiful/ elegant.
Maybe elegant is what he was aiming at.
No spoilers from me, but overall I enjoyed it – not “oh my gawd you must watch this!” but still, glad I saw it.
But here’s a couple of tracks from it/ that made me think ‘ooh, is…[Read more]
I am so sorry for your loss.
What you recognised in Moffat’s words (a line I hadn’t remembered) are spot on.
Please take care – you know far more than I will ever know about loss.
My brother (always far wiser than I) warned me about the waves after losing someone.
I’ll never forget that forewarning, nor be able to thank him enough.
That is an awesome live track by Kraftwerk.
So rhythmic, dancey, pulsating yet controlled.
And with all that, its not a cold, robotic sound – there’s a ton of warmth in it.
and I’ve never heard of or any Hugh Le Caine.
And yes its obvious that the sounds are similar (especially in this track). But I love how Kraftwerk brought a……[Read more]
@craig – I just saw the news and logged in to say something similar.
I first heard Kraftwerk (maybe like many in UK) from watching a Tomorrow’s World (popular technology/ culture programme).
Now this is insane – if the video title is to be believed I was 4 when I saw this but I…[Read more]
This was the first song that sprang to mind.
I know that Golden Brown is more famous (and possibly even had more of his involvement in the core of the songwriting).
Hell, we even had the single.
But the urgency and anger and fuck-you of Something Better Change just seems… well,…[Read more]
@thane16 – so good to hear from you thane-the-elder.
Thane-the-younger’s hunt for work can be hard on the soul.
I’ve recently gone through a long bout of not having work.
I was fine, but there were quite a few “nah’s” to my CV that I thought “hold on, I really do know what you need and reckon I could do that”.
Luckily I’ve found something now…[Read more]
Thank you so much for sharing this.
I know it may sound blasphemous, but I think I prefer your own mixes!
I really liked the Dub version (I don’t think of myself as a dub-head or anything, but I liked the contrast of ‘bottom’ as well as the sharper clicks and shimmers). The more D&B one too.
But kudos to you for getting the remix as…[Read more]
In many ways you’re right.
Life isn’t ‘fair’.
y’know, that’s kinda about it.
There are wiser folks than I who have built on the wisdom of people over millennia, so I’ll let people that understand that wisdom share it.
Life ain’t fair. I try to roll with the punches.
The ones that hurt, hurt.
I don’t think I ‘learn’…[Read more]
I now realise we watched this years ago!
[gulp – where does the time go??!!??]
I stumbled across this podcast a week or two ago.
Its an easy-going listen.
There’s some nice mentions on the writing (Moffat / Gatiss are massive fans of Neale), as well as where Neale’s character names may have come from, but honestly some of the insights…[Read more]
