17 Aug 2008, 05:02 by tadmasterEvery now and then, I notice something about myself that I hadn't realized before. Occasionally, it's some glaring personality trait that needs to be changed or an article of clothing; maybe a strange glowing lump that speaks appears on my forehead... you know, those everyday little things that crop up?
Well, I was looking through my Last.fm library last week and noticed that there had been a kind of surge in the number of Johns in my list. Not that I purposely select my listening material based on first names, but it is a little eerie.
The big, standouts are guys like John Mayer, John Scofield, John Flansburg & John Linnell of They Might Be Giants fame, and of course, Johnny Cash. Continuum and Try! have been a staple of the iPod in recent weeks, and I found Legend of Cash volume 1 and vol. 2 at the library (when I was picking up the reserved copies of No! and Here Come the 1,2,3's).
Scofield's album of Ray Charles covers, That's What I Say, has been a favorite of mine since it came out last year…
28 Apr 2008, 19:25 by PutrickDer Mensch ist ja ein Gewohnheitstier, deshalb kommt jetzt nach zwei Mal Scarlett Johansson zum dreieinhalbten Mal was über WDR2.
Da hab ich nämlich vor schätzungsweise einem Jahr zufällig ein Lied gehört, das mich seitdem nicht mehr loslies. Im country-Style gehalten wurden dort alle möglichen und unmöglichen deutschen Städte aufgezählt — aber mit englischem Akzent.
Ich kam gerade mit dem Auto vom Schwimmtraining und musste rechts ranfahren, weil ich mich vor lauter Lachen nicht mehr aufs Fahren konzentrieren konnte. Leider sagte die/der Sprecher/in im Anschluss nicht, von wem das Lied war, aber zum Glück hat WDR2 im Web ja ein Angebot, in dem man die gespielten Lieder der letzten Woche noch einmal nachschauen kann. Aber wie das so ist: Bis ich zu Hause war, hatte ich die Sache vergessen und eingefallen ist sie mir erst einen Monat später wieder — als die Datenbank die Daten für den entsprechenden Abend natürlich schon längst vergessen hatte.
6 Apr 2008, 17:10 by tadmasterI've been pretty excited about Last.fm, especially since they announced they are paying royalties. So, I've been talking them up in my Blogger and MySpace blogs, and in the discussion forum of my favorite podcast.
Now, if you're as exicted about this stuff as I am, maybe you'll check out some more of My Favorite Things:
WTMD "Mixtape Thursday" - Alright: http://wtmd.mixtape.sgizmo.com/ takes you to a submission form which let's you submit your suggestions for a "mixtape" to my local college radio station, WTMD (Towson, MD). If you suggest a list of 8-10 songs to them, they might then play them some Thursday night at 8pm (EST). Of course, if you're NOT local, you should still be able to stream their broadcast... ain't the Internet fantastic?
Here's my list:
Road Trip (YMMV)
1. Medeski Martin & Wood - Let's Go Everywhere
2. Miles Davis - Move
3. Jackson Browne - Miles Away
4. Sheryl Crow - Everyday Is a Winding Road
15 Dec 2007, 04:22 by tadmaster"Country music comes from the heart," someone told me once.
"No," I replied, "it definitely comes from an internal organ of some kind... but one lower down."
I felt kind of hypocritical saying that, because I grew up on country and western music (that's right... I remember Western music). My dad was always listening to the likes of Merle Haggard, Charley Pride, and Glen Campbell. In the car, we loved singing along with The Oak Ridge Boys and Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers. I still remember giving Dad the Trio album for Christmas 1987. (Yes, THAT album was an LP vinyl recording, smart guy.)
As I write this, I have a number of artists that can really only be called "country" in my collection. I have the inevitable collections of Hank Williams and Johnny Cash stuff, and mp3s of Rusty Cage and I've Been Everywhere; I have The Devil Went Down to Georgia; and I have a bunch of Lyle Lovett CDs. …
