7:20 here on the east coast ... he's good. \:\)

Not doing any listening tonight I have to get up early tomorrow for work and I stayed up too late last night watching Sade, Robert Earl Keen and the Drive By Truckers ... and got up too early this morning.

Just bought the soundtrack (amazon mp3 link) to the movie One Fast Move or I'm Gone (youtube trailer link).

The soundtrack is a joint effort by Benjamin Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie) and Jay Farrar (of Son Volt). I love it. My acoustic music kick is showing no sign of waning.


I just listened to some samples from that album a few days ago and wrote it down to remind myself to get it. I liked what I heard!

I have to admit that I don't just sit and really listen to music anymore. When I was young, I could listen...heck...absorb...myself into an album, but I don't seem to have the time, the quiet house or, frankly, the attention span anymore. My mind wanders to all the things I need to get done.. \:\(

Well, the wife is away this week and I decided I wasn't going to have a 16-hour work day today.

For the past year (literally!) I've had my TiVo recording a series called "Classic Albums" as episodes aired here and there. I became interested when I caught an episode on the Who's "Who's Next" album and I loved it. They interviewed band members, engineers, music writers, etc... and broke the album down song by song, and then sometimes track by track...as in: "this is Keith Moon's drum track solo'd on the mixer, and now this is a subtle acoustic guitar that was mixed in...and here's what it sounds like with it's full guitar tracks...etc..etc... I found the program amazingly interesting and educational.

Well, I've got 18 episodes at the moment, and finally decided to do a bit of what I had always planned: Watching an episode on a particular recording that I have, and then following that up with a critical listening session of the recording itself.

So tonight, I started with what's probably my long-time favorite album: Aja.

I have to say, I have this system on a lot... but always in the background while I'm doing other things.

Doing this tonight reminded me how much I used to love music and how much it meant to me before life got too busy for it. It also reminded me that my M60s are really, really, good speakers and that I should stop taking them for granted. \:\)

And Zimm, despite my small room and efficient speakers, I'm craving an external amp for the volume I'm enjoying...

I think tomorrow night it'll be Deep Purple, Machine Head in that it was one of the first albums I bought as a kid, and I have an amazing, reference-quality 25th anniversary remix CD to listen to afterward.

If you're not familiar with the series, it's worth seeking out!

That sounds really cool Mark! Somebody here linked to a youtube video of the making of a pink floyd song. I wonder if it was from this series. I really enjoyed it.

I'm like you in that I listen to music or the radio as background a lot, but every once In a while I just sit down and soak in a disk.

I saw some of those shows of classic albums a while back on Much Music. I remember seeing The Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zep(?), Metallica and some others I can't recall.

I looked it up on Wiki and discovered there were quite a few that I still don't have on the TiVo. I think I might just output them to DVD...

Mark, if you're looking for a pro amp, consider checking out Northern Sound and Light out of Pittsburgh. They seem to have very good prices on Behringer amps....they also carry some of the "bigger" names too, but you have to get a phone quote. Northern Sound

Also, there's a $25 monthly promo discount as well.

I always use thefind.com to compare prices on, although I found Northern Sound and Light by accident \:\)
