• Some Opening Musical, Philosophical, Political, Personal Impressions and Declarations

    I have only been listening to last.fm for a couple of months, but I am already very impressed and inspired by the experience. It’s enriched my life by allowing me hear enjoyable stuff that I might not have otherwise heard. I’ve also read some posts and journal entries and learned some things about people. Some of these experiences have compelled me to write this journal entry, as a way to try and articulate and express some of my thoughts. Perhaps something here will resonate with someone else to create, even a fleeting or tenuous, conceptual connection.

    I should note that I haven’t downloaded any software, so don’t scrobble. I prefer to keep my charts a record of the music I’m discovering here, not of music I already own. So, much of what I listen to isn’t reflected. I have recently (last couple of days) played, on my home stereo, from start to finish:
    Miles Davis - Agharta
    Sleep – Sleep’s Holy Mountain
    Madlib - Beat Konducta, Volumes 1 & 2
    Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
    AMM – AMMMusic
