Mostly doing laundry and cooking and general cleaning today, while listening to podcasts. So, the theme songs from:
Comedy Death-Ray - CDR Best of 2010 MAIN EDIT2
- by Reggie Watts
Doug Loves Movies - Garfunkle and Oates and Samm Levine guest
- theme performed live by Garfunkel (sic) & Oates
the return of Higson & Whitehouse’s magnificent Down The Line, from 15/3/11 on BBC Radio 4
Marc Maron - WTF - EPISODE 153 PAUL KRASSNER
- both of these are audio collages, more than music
Nerdist - unnumbered episode with Danny Pudi
- a five second chiptune
and reading in bed:
DMZ vs Metalheadz vs Soul II Soul vs Trojan Soundsystem - Roundhouse Soundclash part 5 - Final Round (17-02-2010)
plus some stuff off youtube.
So, basically what I’ve learnt from this week is what I already know, from giving up keeping track of most of the music I listen to on this thing already - it’s fucking hard and takes a lot longer to actually note and write something about the music than it does to listen to it. I listen to something most of my day, and it’s more time-efficient to let my phone remember the 30-120minute things than to stop and think about 3-minute things beyond “listen to that again next month” or “delete that now.” I have hundreds and hundreds of unheard CDs, going back a good eight years or so (that could make a monster post in itself), which can’t be played anywhere other than my bedroom, which keeps getting them short shrift. And even trying to pay half-attention to music heard in shops or pubs or the lobby of work or whatever was a task too far.
I might go back to trying to log some whole albums and such here, though. Taking the above paragraph as a glove slapped spastically in my own face.
And I’m sorry that it was a rare week without gigging or clubbing!
