6 déc. 2008, 4h36m par thebrucewayneWhen I lived in Spain a few years ago, I learnt a thing or two. I learned that Spain is NOT Mexico, as a lot of North Americans are wont to believe, assume, expect. I learned that Mexico is the way it is because of Spain -- The good, the bad, the ugly. I love Mexico, and I truly love Spain. One of the people in Spain that influenced me exponentially was a very beautiful person from San Fernando. I fell in love with her and stupidly messed it up... as I'm very good at doing. So anyway, she had great taste in everything, but I'm not so sure about her music, now that I look back. She had me HOOKED on Spanish pop. I don't know much else about music from the Iberian Peninsula, but whenever I hear Spanish pop, I wax sentimentally and am lost in nostalgia. Here are some of the groups (with the help of last.fm) that I still hear when I think of downtown Cadiz, Jerez, and the beaches of Costa de la Luz & Costa del Sol:

14 août 2008, 19h19m par catattakMany of these artists belong to the soundtrack of something, or perhaps one single song that I happen to enjoy. For some, I might have the entire discography (Tool, Stars, Incubus, Jack Johnson), others just an album or two I enjoy. It's not about the numbers, it's about sharing what we love. I love my music.

13 août 2007, 19h06m par thebrucewayneSourcing my library...
(I’m only scratching the surface really, since I have between 6k-7k songs on my iPod and 35k on a separate hard drive that I don’t even want to look at...)
But anyway, sourcing my library… I have several tags that are nation-specific. I didn’t tag stuff US, UK, or any other (primarily) English-speaking country (yet), but here are my favorite acts/albums by country:
ibiza – My ibiza tag is pretty voluminous, so I won’t go there. I did go to ibiza a few years back, and as seen on my dashboard, I love the chillout, cafe del mar-type music.
As far as world music goes, my favorite artist is Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. He passed the year I moved to Hawaii, and his life still is much celebrated over there.
I seem to listen to a lot of DJ-type music from germany:
house DJ – Timo Maas (I even gave him a tag: maas)
trance DJ – Paul van Dyk (tag: pvd)
Honorable mention, spanish guitar - Ottmar Liebert
and germany is also the birthplace of one of my favorite classical composers - Johann Sebastian Bach. …

16 nov. 2006, 10h25m par bandit_bilbaI'm kind of sick of writing journals about the crappy music I hate, so I decided to write one about the stuff I like for once.
This entry is all about the stuff I listen to when I am tired or trying to get to sleep. I'll write about some, and not about others. In no particular order...
1. Mark Knopfler
I have been listening to him for years and years. My Dad is a die-hard Knopfler/Dire Straits fan, so he was always listening to them. Golden Heart was the household "eating music" for some time, back when I was about 10 or so (I am 19 now). I recently rediscovered it and still know a lot of the lyrics despite not listening to it for years.
I worked as a DJ for a while and one of the songs I played right at the start of certain events such as wedding receptions, birthdays and other functions where I'd have to play stuff while people sat eating was Sailing to Philadelphia off the album of the same name.
But the first album that made me want to start listening (again) to these ones, was Shangri-La. …
5 sept. 2006, 14h20m par bandit_bilbabecause it is 2.05am. but i am listening to Porcupine Tree and Katatonia and in the end I am just too lazy. And besides, I can't fall asleep to music (I wish I could) and I really want to listen to it... even though I have heard it all a million billion times.
I blog too much about bullshit in my myspace, I try to only ramble about music here but I'm new at the concept of blogs entirely about music.
I love Opeth.
I love Finntroll
I love Ottmar Liebert, whom I saw live with Luna Negra last month. It was amazing, he was amazing, the band was amazing.
What else do I love? Lets see, this is kind of dumb (really dumb) because take a looky at my charts and you'll see what I love.
I used to love Rammstein, but I don't anymore... not so much. I mean they're awesome, and Live Aus Berlin is 100% fantastic, but I've progressed to different, more 'metal' music I suppose.
I'll tell you what I hate, and thats these new pansy-ass bands like My Chemical Romance and Simple Plan who bug the hell out of me. …
