10 Oct 2008, 12:06 by tadmasterWe all cruise along through life at various levels of awareness. Some of us are acutely aware of every nuance of every situation, and some are clueless about the signals they send out and that they receive in return. I've always leaned more toward the latter category. A couple of weeks ago, I discovered that my world was not working the way I thought it was.
When your world is suddenly not where you expected, you start looking around for it. It's a painful and scary experience, not knowing what's real and what's just a self-imposed delusion, but I'm lucky, because I have people around me who aren't afraid to tell me the truth. They anchor me, and help me fix the problems I create.
And in the midst of all of this, there's music. (As if you expected me to write about travel or architecture...)
One dangerous, yet thrilling, thing about a personal crisis is the new meaning that old familiar songs take on. Suddenly, So Much To Say has a depth I never recognized before; the sassy…

29 May 2008, 01:05 by aikakoneUse your top 30 to answer the following questions:
1. How did you get into 29?
Live: I heard and liked a song from their first album, but it was their massive 2nd album Throwing Copper that had lots of radio singles. When I bought it, I could listen to about 6 songs (tracks 2-7 on CD) straight through and over again ad nauseum.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
King's X: It might have been one of the singles from the first album, but it was most likely Summerland from the second album Gretchen Goes to Nebraska
3. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Fall Out Boy: I own two separate albums, but I have 3 distinct copies of Infinity On High
4. What is your favorite song by 15?
Dave Dobbyn: Right now (all favorites can change) Just Add Water
5. What is your favorite song by 5?
Neil Finn: One of the best songwriters there is. My favorite just as I do this meme of his solo stuff is Truth, but with Neil my favorites do change frequently.
6. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?

30 Dec 2007, 05:15 by KADCAlbum of the Year: The Ataris / Welcome the Night (4.14/A+).
This was a surprise. The Ataris’ Santa Barbara punk output was pleasant but sort of disposable. The move to alternative pop on so long, astoria appeared to showcase a new direction for a band that was running out of punk-pop to plumb, and it would have been perfectly understandable if they’d put out another album just like it. Astoria was a minor hit thanks to a cover of “The boys of summer” which benefits most from not having Don Henley on vocals, and there were a handful of truly excellent cuts. So how’d this one become a dark, hard rock record? The world may never know, but it appears that Kris Roe meant for it to happen. He jettisoned the rhythm section of the band after astoria, moved back to Indiana, and expanded the band to three guitars, bass, drums, keyboard, and cello; the result is a much heavier, denser sound, and coupled with Roe’s less-hystrionic vocals, the songs lack the most annoyingly punk-pop signature of previous albums. …
28 Dec 2007, 17:14 by sallysaurusSo you're stranded on a desert island, but there's good news. You've got a fresh water supply and plenty to eat, etc. And your waterproof iPod has unlimited battery life.
The bad news -- you've only got 10 CDs/albums of music loaded on this iPod of the ages.
Which 10 would you most want with you while you're waiting for rescue? (Or, if you prefer, while you're waiting for your back hair to grow long enough to copy Jack Sparrow's self rescue.)
My list has a few hard points and some others that vary depending on what day you ask me. Here's today's:
12 Songs of Good & Evil (hard point). My favorite rainy day album. Cliff Eberhardt has such an amazing voice.
When Juniper Sleeps (hard point). There is no instrument Seamus Egan can't play. To An Old Rose may be my favorite waltz.
A Sense of Place (hard point). What's the point of being stranded without the blues? John Mayall may be British, but he gets it.
A Hard Day's Night. Gotta have The Beatles. This is usually my favorite Beatles album. …
