Ok, so it's 4:12 in the morning, I'm tired, but my mind is spinning. Good thing, bad thing. So I thought I would let it spill here.
First of all; my insomniac soundtrack is mercury Rev's album 'Deserter's Songs. (an old goody that Mark Miller recommended to me years ago.)
OK, where was I? I'm in bed, lights out. It's now 4:14 am.
Ok, so I was listening to godspeed you! black emperor and pondering post-rock. I'm a sucker for genres, and I was trying to figure out what post rock was. Then I listened to a track I downloaded from John Luther Adams' new release. I immediately forgot all about post-rock. Post-rock is for sissies.
The Adams track was awesome. It helped that I was overtired and listening on headphones. The piece was for snare drum (or perhaps many?) and was performed by Steven Schick. I have no idea how it was recorded or performed, and frankly I don't care. Although, if you hit the link to Prof. Schick, it lists his office phone number. Perhaps I'll give him a call.
Then, after contemplating fantasy baseball, I decided to go to the flickr photo sharing site and do random searches. My favorite was the stinky cheese search. See for yourself. Weird.
So...who ever said extending insomniac quality time wasn't productive.
nobody I guess
& that's all
