hozaygarseeya,
I've been listening to a lot of soundtracks at work lately because they don't have words. The words let me concentrate on work instead of lyrics which allow me to get more work done. I also feel a sense of urgency when I listen to soundtracks, which keep me working.

This has been what I've been listening to this week. I can't get enough of this song.

I don't always invade Poland, but when I do I listen to Carl Orff.

Or Wagner, I guess.

1999 called me up last night. Said the .com tech bubble was still going strong so entering college now I'll have a bright future waiting. It said movies like the Matrix show entertainment is going to get ever more original and creative and the Internet will help smart people connect with other smart people to grow knowledge, so long as we patch for Y2K. It said we've never been safer and more free; that the 21st century holds nothing but promise and we should leave behind the nihilism of Generation X.

I hung up.
:rolleyes:

I love this cover! The slight tempo increase is kind of unfortunate, but I'll confess I'm a sucker for the "pretty" vocals.

For some reason I thought about this song the other day and have been playing it a fair amount since.

I forgot how much I loved this album. Now that I know the origin of every sample and film reference after watching countless horror movies it plays so much differently for me than it did when I first heard it....TWENTY ONE YEARS AGO!?!?!? That just can't be right. I know it is because I'm a pimp at math but still...shit. I'm 100. :(

They sent me in the complete opposite direction of where I live, to a private clinic in really nice neighborhood. Well, more expensive than where I live, anyway.

So, sitting pretty close next to me, in the waiting room, is this girl who looks distinctly familiar.

I kept glancing over at her, practicing my interpretation of a comically unsubtle knowing-expression; but she would not make eye-contact, for even a second. I dunno, I guess I was just being naive to presume she'd want to actually meet someone who'd recognized her? Which, I can also understand her not expecting it; since, it appeared, I was the only one either noticing her or even trying to be noticed myself. And the other patients mostly all seemed much older.

My final, last ditch effort was going to be to walk right up to the receptionist, hopefully before either of us was called, and say something like, Hey, you guys don't....you know, <starts-to-whisper> ever get any famous-people in here, right? As I start to roll my eyes toward her sitting directly behind me.

However, of course, I very quickly thought better of it.

Latest Celtic Woman album is all I could've dreamed of. It's unusual for a sombre song to be my favourite of the lot, but oh my god, this one:

Since I Left You - The Avalanches

This video makes me think of 'the Aussies,' all of them, the whole lot them.

He has an almost, I wanna say, Eric B. (of &-Rakim) type of quality. For his beer-holding and watch-looking and overall detached-observation. Kind of helps, I think, to make this type of music and band more accessible, relatable, for folks like me. Helps to detract from lead-singer's (personal injury) lawyer-quality and the man-bun, & etc... shown there-in

Gord Downie, front man for The Tragically Hip passed away yesterday. My mental playlist is just all Hip today. I can in no way choose favorites, I just want to hug all their songs close and not let go today, but here are a few that happen to be in my head right now.

And this one recorded during their final tour, when he was already suffering from incurable brain cancer
