19 May 2007, 11:41 by ziggy_puckQui d’autre, à 72 ans, peut afficher autant de prétention et de fierté que Jerry Lee Lewis ? Celui qui répond à qui le questionne sur ses influences qu’il ne doit son art à personne, qu’il est son seul maître, se pose également comme le dernier survivant du rock and roll originel. Celui d’avant 1958, la taule de Chuck, le service d’Elvis, les payola pour tous, et le scandale pour Jerry Lee. Et si il ne joue plus de piano debout depuis assez longtemps, qu’il a toujours son médecin personnel dans un coin de la scène et qu’à la notable exception de ses mains, son corps semble figé dans la naphtaline, il affiche toujours une certaine forme. Alors certes, on peut en dire autant de Chuck Berry ou Ike Turner qui, eux, marchent tout seuls. Jerry Lee Lewis est en tout cas le dernier monument blanc du genre. Le Killer a survécu au King depuis trente ans et continue de jouer, enregistrant occasionnellement un album – rarement mauvais. En 2006, il faisait son retour discographique après une décennie de silence sur le premier Last Man Standing. …
20 Apr 2007, 22:25 by GnacThis entry serves two main purposes: one is sort of useful and the other(s) is/are utterly stupid.
First, the stupid reasons: to pimp this link in the artist pages of everyone I listen to, to shamelessly get people to click on it, and to annoy those who did.
Second, to test a PHP script which automatically extracts data from Winamp generated HTML playlists - so I can honestly say that this DOES contain everything on my playlist at the time I made this entry.

6 Mar 2006, 05:04 by CommunistaI didn't listen to a lot this weekend. I had the entire apartment to myself and a car that I was terrified to drive. I stayed home and watched movies, Ong-Bak and Spirited Away were my favorites of the weekend. Though I did have a little Studio Ghibli filmfest, all on my own.
I have recently purchased Yield and listened through the whole thing once. I have touched on a couple songs from it that I like a lot, such as Low Light and Wishlist.
I get in moods where I listen to a song several times and at the moment I'm really liking Eponine. As soon as it goes off my list, I play it again. Sometimes when I think you're not looking, I'll play it twice in a row. Another song I really like a lot is Bermuda Highway. If you haven't listened to this before, I suggest you do. I've got a live version that is fantastic, and I generally do not care for live music unless I'm actually at the show.
Could be going to Bonnaroo, which would be very cool. …
