Cool, thanks! Reminds me of a friend my sister had, who would make her cassette compilations (back in the 80′s, which seems to be the musical period I’m mostly stuck in .
note to Henry: read dooce’s previous post entitled Lance Armstrong, then go to bed
This guy has some great esoteric music picks – if you go to his blog main page, he also talks about what he is currently listening to.
recysted……..my, we are sharp tonight!
Alright, I’m sold! I’ll tune into your program on Tuesday morning. Fortunately my class ends at 10am.
don’t blame you, Nilbo, avoid llances at all costs
ooh I’ll listen in as well!
I thought you were supposed to have it cysted, Nilbo.
So coskel (or anyone else really into popular music), know of any good “Top-10″ lists for recommended albums over the last few years? As in, from a music critic you really respect?
boy im a dork, all these postings today – maybe I should tell you all its a MUSIC program not talk, and it is classical music – opera, art song and vocal music/instrumental. And yes, I DO play DCD on my show
but, some poltice, or magnoplasm might do the trick as well!
oops…EST for those of you in the Staes, and GMT -5 for those of you on the isles or in Europe.
Hehehe Henryk … you’re quite right … in Aus, it’s all “Bruce”. And Vanessa, I was supposed to have that done. But I recysted.
Dead Can Dance broke up over 5 years ago, but Lisa Gerrard still records…she is the voice on the Gladiator soundtrack AND on the filn “The Insider”.
My show URL is http://www.whfr.fm Go to “Listen Live” at 10AM tuesday. If you are using Windows Media Player you will need to paste the following url in: http://whfr.hfcc.net:8000
n…….greater people than you have cocked up here as well!
DC I just received your email…thank you as well! Everyones answers were thorough and well written. Very helpful.
On music: I’ll listen to your talk show coskel…and I will have to remember Dead Can Dance. I am always looking out for musicians I haven’t heard of yet.
oops….Nilbo..that’s enough of the wine for me…..methinks!!
As far as I know, DCD have stopped making music, however, they have quite the history. One of my favorites is the CD Spiritchaser from 1996.
oh my goodness! i have been reading this blog for about a month now and just this morning figured out how to leave a comment! Talk about a all time dork~! Thanks for letting me stop by and have a giggle or two Dooce..have a great weekend!
so if everyone is going to get all open-minded about music, does that mean I can coerce you all to tune in to my radio show on Tuesday morning?
Vanessa, such an easy name to pronounce….bruce!
coskel: Sure. DO you have a URL to go to?
DC: If you want haunting, you should listen to Dead Can Dance. Lisa Gerrard has an amazing voice…I swear it’s like an instrument.
ok Niblo….correct me on this one as well!!!
lorena mackennit has a very sweet and haunting voice. good choice kendra and kassi
Ah, Vanessa … but the question is, how is it pronounced?
I had a llanfair once .. but I had it llanced.
Happy Saturday kiddies.
I’ve already had my mid morning nap..and now I have to find some way to waste another 8 hours. Oi.
I believe in Welsh, “Gawwwwd” is also pronouced “Jones”.
Ok, I am off to finish up this homework…thank you both, again. Have a great day!!
Hey, Henryk, I have a llanfair…stamped in my passport…some place in Wales.
Kendra: I love most all types of music…It IS cool to know that someone is just as diverse. I’m rather opposed to sticking to one genre, because there are so many things to appreciate from different types.
Now I am really confused! I will finish this rather yummy 2004 white shiraz, and call it a night!
Well NJ likes you too Kassi!
That’s silly, Henryk … in Welsh, it’s “Smythe”, and it’s spelled “Ppwlldylwwlddwylp”
Kassi: Yeah…to say “I like rock” or “I like country” is too limiting in my opinion. BRING ON THE MUSIC! I feel so fortunate that my dad introduced me to such a variety of music – it really allows me to appreciate the diversity out there!
Gawwwwdddd….will I ever learn??!!
Canadians Rock! [though I am sure that you already know this]
Thank you again, so much for your help. I was in a bit of a panic…
coskel…thats good…..it’s rude to ‘chat’ with your mouth full!
We’re Canadians, and dammit, we DO OUR HOMEOWRK WHEN IT’S GIVEN TO US!
Kassi: We have such similar music tastes!! I can’t believe there is someone else out there who could listen to both NIN and Loreena Mckennitt. Sweet!
“Welcome to llainfairpwllgwyngylllyndropwch saintasillioggogogoch … pronounced “Jones”"
Thank you SO very much!
On its way, Kassi …
llainfairpwllgwyngylllyndropwch saintasillioggogogoch , I always pronounced it….Smith!
Kassi: I just sent you my answers
