  • Wszystko się zmienia.

    17 May 2009, 21:14 by consider_it

    Wszystko zaczęło się od D., która za trzy miesiące staje na ślubnym kobiercu, i oglądaniu jej potencjalnych sukni ślubnych. Nagle do mnie to dotarło. Choć uważamy się za dorosłych już od paru dobrych lat - dopiero teraz przychodzi okres kiedy tak naprawdę stajemy się ludźmi dojrzałymi. Nasze życia, paradoksalnie, choć coraz bardziej splecione z losami tylu już osób, które spotkaliśmy na naszej drodze, właśnie teraz zaczynają obierać swój prawdziwy, indywidualny tor.

    O. przestaje być moim współlokatorem, za rok żeni się z I.. Myśli też o przeprowadzce do Konina. G. i M. - zaręczeni. A. i B. - też. Maleńka P. - wcale już nie taka mała przecież! W. - właściwie już na finiszu swoich studiów...
    Przykłady można by mnożyć, ale jeden jest dla mnie najbardziej przemawiający - przecież to ja, już za niecały miesiąc, zaczynam mieszkać z M.! Boję się - jak cholera! Nie mogę się doczekać - też "jak cholera"!

    Wszystko zaczyna układać się w pewien wzór, pewną całość. Coraz więcej rzeczy będzie niezmiennych, poza moim wpływem. …

  • radio opiumtea 03/06: totes 'tronic.

    10 Mar 2008, 03:15 by opiumtea

    I'm on spring break right now, and unlike any normal person I haven't gone home... in fact, I'm roadtrippin' the shit out of this week with my friend Timothy. Internet is only happening right now because we're crashing at our friend's house. And they're practicing some violin-piano duet and I'm a musical idiot and don't play any instruments and so seek the solace of Macbook.

    So, the night/morning of last week's show, I went to the teahouse, helped rearrange my friend's furniture because his roommate hates him and moved out, played Apples to Apples, packed up my stuff, panicked, did the radio show, had breakfast, went to class at 9:30, packed some more, panicked some more, Zeused, made fun of my friend's outfit because she looked like a professor, and left at noon, follwed by driving for four hours and then was dragged all around the city to meet various people and eat various types of food until midnight. Also, the previous day I'd done ANOTHER all-nighter and I'm incapable of…
  • 看见AIR

    18 Feb 2008, 04:39 by ylegende

    看见了AIR。

    Fnac组织的rencontre,“遇见会”。提前一个半个小时到场,前面已经来了20人左右。快开始的时候,队伍已经很长。进厅里的时候,前后坐着站着满了人。这活动或许不能称作追星活动。参与者包括60岁以上的老者,一副知识分子样貌。他们的歌迷大抵是青年以上的。

    总的来说,法国人把他们当成美国风格的迷情电子乐队,美国人则把他们当作法国/异国风情艺术电子。学界概括为“beetween folk and new wake electro”。访谈主持人称“简直很难相信竟然有一个法国乐队能在美国的摇滚界走好”。他们也是史上唯一一个将在美国开巡回的法国乐队(2001年其实跟别的歌手一起开过。今年4月22到5月10日正式的巡回演出,12个城市。另外在欧洲及日本巡回)。不管他们的创作是不是像自诩的那样真算“艺术活动”,也能将于月6、7日在蓬皮杜中心和现代艺术家Xavier Veihan搞搞活动了。顺便说一句,被国内很多小资吹捧的所谓“香颂”,很大一部分在法国其实是归做低文化等级的。实话说,法国流行绝大部分都很烂啊。要命的是法国音乐现代音乐也绝大部分是流行乐,跟国内形势相当。

    这个活动是fnac组织的艺人与读者/观众的互动活动。聊会天,当然重点介绍5号刚在法国推出的新专辑Pocket Symphony,推广一下巴黎的两场演唱会。然后让艺人介绍影响自己最深的书籍、电影和音乐。允许拍照的时间只有到场的两分钟。虽然很靠前,却很遗憾坐了错的一侧,只好单把主持人看更清楚了。总的来说Nicolas Godin打扮得很知识分子,比较外向一些,喜欢抬头对观众笑。JB Dunckel喜欢低头,头发遮住眼睛,气质忧郁,说话很快,不太像一般法国人那样用力,因而被主持人调侃为更担负着“pop star”的角色。他连忙否定。

  • Charlotte Gainsbourg and French Pop

    19 Dec 2006, 04:13 by garrettwarshaw

    A couple of days ago, I decided to give Charlotte Gainsbourg’s new record 5:55 a listen. Her being the daughter of French pop royalty Serge Gainsbourg sparked my curiosity, and the inclusion of Air, Nigel Godrich, and numerous others as songwriters and producers motivated me to devote my all too abundant free time to a couple of listens. And after those listens, I’ve realized I downloaded an album that’s not bad, but certainly not good. As a whole, it comes off as a perfect cliché of what one would expect from a project involving a French actress and Air.

    Let’s start with what’s glaringly obvious. Ms. Gainsbourg’s voice is breathy and light in a way that leaves a lot to be desired in terms of personality. It seems to take countless cues from not only the women her father recruited to sing with him, but also Air. Personally, one thing I look for in vocals because it can portray this quality so strongly is the character of a singer or band if of course it’s done well. …
  • Lyrics Game: Part II

    Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 1530 songs that play, no matter how embarassing.
    Step 3: BE AWESOME. (again, huh?)
    Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    I just have too much fun with this to stop. Oh, and I've included artist names, perhaps to make it a bit easier?

    (If a song title is in the first few lines, it'll be replaced with and elipsis)

    P.S. There are a few repeat artists.

    1. Always when we fight, I try to make you laugh 'til everything's forgotten. I know you hate that.
    You And Me Song

    2. Several days a month you made the mile to my house, and had me do a stroll with you.

    3. There's nothing to do here, some just whine and complain in bed in the hospital.
    Hospital Beds

    4. The tax man's taken all my dough, and left me in my stately home, lazing on a [...]
