  • Music:

The proliferation of music

I have recently been discovering a lot of new music. Of course, much of this may be new to me and old hat to everyone else, because, although I've always loved all kinds of music, when one is living with an elderly mother, one does not have much chance to indulge one's own tastes. Especially when said elderly mother tended to have either CBC radio one or the television on most of the day, and it's a small house. And I don't have any really comfortable earphones.

However, now, through the magic of iTunes and Last.fm, I have been exploring and discovering things. I find, though, that the _disadvantage_ of iTunes is that you download something and then forget that you have it! I keep looking back at my library and seeing albums that I don't remember ever listening to, and then playing them and liking them, but not being able to remember them again when I want to play them again... This is compounded by the fact that there seem to be SO MANY bands or artists out there! You can't keep track of them all.

I think I may start buying cds of my favourites so that I can see them on the shelf and remind myself to play them. Yesterday I bought the Joshua Radin cd for that reason, and anyway, he's someone I've been listening to a lot. I also bought Feist, which I listened to in my car and enjoyed thoroughly.

Other new discoveries that I'm liking a lot:
The Weepies, Say I am You
Kate Walsh, Clocktower Park
Tristan Prettyman, Hello
Kate Rusby, Awkward Annie (asakiyume - you would like this)

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…
