  • James Thurber (ジェームズ・サーバー)

    16 Dec 2009, 17:33 by tarirari

    1920年代終わり頃から人気を博し始めた、
    アメリカのユーモア作家。

    味のあるマンガ挿絵も自分で描いている。

    大学の時に、教授がサーバーの絵をまねて描き、
    研究室で、はずかしそうに、こっそりと見せてくれた。

    ショートショートは、どれも描写からして、ユーモラスのじゅずつなぎ。

    Woody Allen も、当然、少年のころに読んでいるのだろうな。
  • Gypsy Music (ジプシー音楽)

    29 Nov 2008, 15:19 by tarirari

    The BeatlesJohn Lennon も、
    どこかで に愛着を感じていたのだろう。
    GirlI'm Only Sleepingは、
    まさにジプシー音楽系の曲だから。
    Veribara (ベリバラ)のジプシーの唄という曲も、そんな系をねらっているのだろう。たぶん。
    Woody Allen が「ギター弾きの恋」という映画で描こうとした大御所Django Reinhardt 様には教えるのも恥ずかしいとは思いますが。
  • The Village Vanguard: A Hallowed Basement: NPR Jazz Profiles Podcast

    26 Oct 2008, 09:47 by colmenares

    If you are into Jazz at all I highly recommend the NPR Jazz Profiles Podcast to all of you. This particular one struck me as really inspiring. It covers the story of the world's most recognized jazz club: The Village Vanguard in NYC.

    Here's an excerpt from the NPR article:

    NPR.org, August 27, 2008 - It has become, perhaps, the most famous basement in New York City. The small room with low ceilings and remarkable acoustics has staged more than 100 live commercial recordings, several of which are essential works in the history of jazz on record. The Village Vanguard, open since 1935, is the oldest continuously operated jazz club in the world.

    When founder Max Gordon originally launched the Greenwich Village club, it provided a stage for folk musicians, poets, actors and comedians, as well as jazz musicians. From its inception, the Vanguard attracted hip, well-informed audiences. Gordon gave singer Harry Belafonte his first big break, and Belafonte remembers both an eclectic group of performers and the support of the club owner. …
  • Two New Projects: Tag Cleanup and The Great Unrated (Updated)

    30 Jul 2008, 15:42 by JoeIsListening

    Updated 8/5/08: Changed one tag and added info about the rating system.

    Okay, thanks to a recent Woot purchase, I have upgraded from my first generation iPod Shuffle to a 5.5th Generation iPod with 30 G's of space. It's not enough for my entire collection, but since I listen mostly to shuffled songs, I set up a 1 Gig playlist of random selections and filled the rest of it with my 15 Favorite Albums and the Top Artists from my Last.fm charts, along with some favorite Genre material.

    Now it is precipitating my doing a couple of things that I have meant to do for a while. The first of these is a new Listening Project, called "The Great Unrated." The object here is to take all of my songs without a star rating and give them one. I've been working on it during casual listening at home (when I think to look at the recently played songs to see which were unrated), but haven't really put a dent in it. But since the regular iPod gives you the capacity to add or change a rating while listening, the opportunity was ripe.
  • One Song per Artist - A Musical Listening Project

    30 Apr 2008, 15:28 by JoeIsListening

    Starting next week, if I remember to do it, I will be starting on a listening project second only to my unannounced Unheard Music Project* of 2007 and any of the alphabetical listening binges that Soundtrekkie has been through.

    I decided to make a playlist that featured just one song by every artist in my iTunes. Well, almost every artist. I left off spoken word bits (although I should have included the classic Orson Welles Frozen Peas Spot), spoken word comedy** (the Woody Allen standup stuff I have isn't broken up into bits - it's four 20+ minute files), and Classical music, which isn't so much about the artist as the composer - plus, I didn't want to deal with 20 minute long pieces of music that I had to keep adjusting the volume on because of their dynamic range.

    I did allow field recordings, though, which means that Stephen P. McGreevy's recordings of Audible Auroras and The Conet Project's collection of Numbers Stations will be represented. …
  • Deserted Island Songs (With Unamusing Commentary)

    26 Nov 2007, 10:36 by CrumpledStar

    By popular demand (okay, one person), I have created my so-called Deserted Island playlist. I tried to keep it under an hour (and failed by six minutes) and 15 songs or less (failed by one). This took me all of twenty minutes, so hopefully it is not too terrible. In any case, were I trapped on a desert island with some kind of functioning music-playing device, these are the songs I wouldn't mind being stuck with. Although, really, were I actually on a deserted island, I'd have much bigger concerns than which Wilco song I like best. Have you noticed how pale I am? I'd have sunstroke within the hour. Sorry this is so long, by the way. You aren't expected to wade through any of it. Anyway, away we go.

    1. Roscoe by Midlake
    First up, we have my dear "Roscoe", the most played song on my iTunes and the subject of numerous inside jokes in my social circle. Tim Smith is the only man I know that can give the world's most sinister Death Glare while playing an enchanting flute solo (though not during this song, of course). …

    伍迪大叔你太猥瑣了,我們都愛著你,就像十五歲愛上那個小婊子一樣,她梳了兩個辮子,前額頭發絲齊,讓你整天想做點壞事。“Chapter One. He was as tough and romantic as the city he loved. Beneath his black-rimmed glasses was the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat. I love this. New York was his town, and it always would be...”

    和這名更像主人的女人做愛,讓我了解到和我丈夫的性是多么空虛和怪異的經驗。他的個性暴躁、猶太自由偏執狂、男性沙文主義、自以為是、憤世嫉俗,對生活抱怨不斷,卻又束手無策,想成為藝術家,卻害怕犧牲。在親密時刻,他吐露了對死亡的恐懼,夸大的言辭下,是他變相的自我陶醉。他潛意識里想偉大也想不朽,但是碌碌無為了很多年。他也知道這種句式結構和表達方式并不好,術語太多,語氣難免過于憤世嫉俗,看似狂妄自大,其實博取同情才是他的本意。他曾有過的最壞念頭是成為奧黛麗赫本的襪子,務必是左腳的。希望大家喜歡他,和他的小丑劇。
