Everything and Nothing / Re: What are your plans and goals in 2008?
« on: January 27, 2008, 04:11:05 PM »

Get the Infraction vinyl series in full swing
Improve the house, sell the house, & get another that comfortably fits my wife and I and our little 8 mo. old girl
Start running again
Take an overdue vacation outside of Ohio.  3 years of anesthesia school with little time off, has made me extremely dull.  That's a fact.

Get caught up on the backlog of things to listen to.

I think that's it for now - seems semi-achievable.

The vinyl move is an interesting one, Jason. Will that be for a different style of music than we are used to from Infraction?

Good luck with your plans !

As someone once said, the great stuff doesn't always strike you at first.

Many thanks, Joe :)  I had been meaning to email you about Winterhouse
since you had not posted anything on it ... you had me worried !

Its an album I always really enjoy when I put it on, and I have the distance
from it whereby its just an album for me, that I did 50% is not a factor.

Hope to be working on another Winterhouse album with Robert this year.

I caught a fair bit (then had to go out) ... enjoyable mellow stuff.
And pretty good quality sound from Stillstream.

Yep, that sure is a minimal setup you have there :)

Now on for those interested :)

- Saafi Brothers: Supernatural  (fine beat-dance stuff)
- Justin Vanderberg: In waking moments  (Hypnos SS) (a first listen, and strikes me as an accomplished and interesting piece of work.)
- Taylor Dupree: Stil.  (very listenable minimalism)
- Deaf Center: Pale ravine  (always goes down well here)

I'll make of point of tuning in at 11pm for some of it.

You are right, a section under this Wide Wide World called "Gear: Recording & Playing" or something like that to keep all gear posts together.

Drone Zone at is usually good for that style.

And certainly good to see these Voigts reissued.
But I've just noticed that I don't have the self-titled first one .. which is odd 'cause I play the other 3 fairly regularly.

Wow, good stuff. Thanks for the link Alan. I'll have to seek out some more.

And yes Mike, I had the wrong Gas, but as my grandmother used to say "don't hold it in; better to bear the shame than bear the pain."

Ah but your grandmother was surely wrong.

Anybody (especially Brian) know anything about Altered Carbon and the rest of that series by Richard Morgan?  It sounds interesting to me, and while it's filed in "science fiction" it sounds almost like a suspense/thriller story with sci-fi elements.

Right now I'm about halfway through another go at Lord of the Rings and enjoying it enormously, more than ever. This is my first time reading the books since seeing the movies.

I read Altered Carbon ... quite a while ago. Seem to remember finishing it (which I don't do if I don't like a book enuf) and enjoying it. Struck me as very much a detective novel in sci-fi garb. If that's your thing, its worth a look.

- Lead : Music For Storms on Adastra (this is from 1999 and its an exceptional work ... one half is John Micheal Zorko (electronics) whom you may know from his synth work alongside female vocalists, the other is Scott Biven on guitar, and its an excellent drone/space/experimental work that I had not played for quite some time.

- Jonathan Coleclough: One hour as sixty million years (basically ripping up the fabric of space-time in this intense space/drone orgy)

Loren's post reminds me that Saul did not get a new Stokes album out last year ... though he has been working on one for some time.

Early evening

- Miles Davis: Porgy and Bess

Summertime could be the best tune ever.

Thanks, Jonathan.

And Alan, I took a double-take on that line you quote ... but now find it quite charming. Reminds me of the Twin Peaks / Biosphere Substrata line "the mind revealing itself to itself ..." or somesuch thing.

However, its certainly time to shrug off the manacles of ego and self-delusion ... and crack open a good bottle of chardonnay! Its Friday  :P
