Lots of stuff from yesterday to digest and not enough time to chew it all over this morning. Dan Carlos: I Think I Like It LBOM board meeting transport mission - beach camp Operation: Vacate Jamaican jerk chx from Rock Steady @ the laundry mission and Rolan's phone pickup.

memory of a Mozart motif posted: Thu 2013-09-19 09:33:00 tags: music
There's a snatch of piano motif that surfaces from memory every so often. I know it's Mozart. I know it's from a CD or tape of Mozart recordings I owned before I retired physical media as a form of music librarianship.

Picked up somebody's CD collection at the thrift shop, some 27 discs for $6. What I didn't account for was the fact that pop music pretty much sucks these days. Panic At the Disco. Fallout Boy. Rihanna. Yung Joc. Chamillionaire. Pink... ma'am, with forgettable pop hooks like that you've got no place looking down your nose at any stupid porno paparazzi girls. Plain White Ts is actually rather listenable. Ella Fitzgerald will get a due listening. Musical theatre soundtracks e.g. The Music Man et al... We'... (...more)
