""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

What does he sound like, anyway? I just watched Undeclared and was reminded that Morrissey was a teenage fan of Loudon Wainwright. (Yes, I'm that slavish a Morrissey fan--one of my few indulgences.)

I've always preferred You Are Free to Moon Pix, but it's been a looooong time since I've given it a spin...maybe I'll put out my copy sometime soon for a recheck.

Sadly, my familiarity with Loudon Wainwright doesn't extend beyond a single album, Attempted Mustache, from which these two songs were culled. From what I've heard, it's not his best. I purchased it on the strength of the two songs, particularly The Swimming Song. Overall, I'd describe his sound as a twangy, world weary, tongue-in-cheek brand of folk. I'm looking forward to the time when my finances will permit me to delve further into his catalogue.

The most beautiful song ever recorded

11. Glassjaw - Ape Dos Mil


this band doesn't get enough credit. Their two albums are amazing and they pretty much started the whole "screamo" thing. I hear so many bands that are just trying to sound like Glassjaw

Seriously couldn't agree more, and i challenge anyone ever to listen to glassjaw and tell me that what they do isn't pure brilliance...If you need physical proof, buy any Glassjaw cd, and listen to a song in the right speaker, then proceed to listen to the same song in the left...You'll hear some of the most amazing guitar work to ever grace ears..oh, and be sure to listen to that song in both speakers once you've listened to each seperately...The first time i heard them, i was confused, and scared (ha ha ha ha) but i warmed up to them, and realized that since they kind of came out when the "screamo" thing was hitting mainstream they got tied into it, sort of like what happened when incubus broke through, i mean we all know they're not "rap rock" Limp bizkit, and linkin park are "rap rock."  Incubus, is  not even close to those bands...So, yeah, i'm glad people like glassjaw around here... :yabbse-thumbup:  :bravo:

This is what came up when I hit "Party Shuffle" on Itunes
The concept of "playlist" seems so foreign to me ever since I switched from Windows to Mac almost two years ago, and hence, Winamp to iTunes.  For those not in the know, iTunes allows you to create playlists (different from Winamp [last I used it] in that you don't have to load them up -- just click on one), so I use those to put all songs from each album I have in its own playlist.  Nothing special there, it's probably a common practice.  But I bring this up because since I've used iTunes I've never really had a solid playlist.  This is because of iTunes' wonderful Party Shuffle.  I haven't used the Library as a source in a very long time.  What I've found works for me is throwing all the albums I'm currently obsessing over into one large playlist and pulling from that.  I like to set it to 10 recently played, 10 upcoming, and lots of times I'll throw whole albums onto the queue as well.

Anyone got any quirky listening habits they wanna throw out there?
