    But soon I'll get my own computer, and perhaps I should spend a few hours looking back through all blue diaries, since he picks such good music. I suspect that you do too.

      blueness likes lots of music i would never have heard unless he had told me about.  one i recall was U2 classic in a very interesting Caribbean merengue version.  i hope you get sound very soon and will share your favorites.  we seem to have a lot in common, no?  i am amazed and glad for the internets all over again. ;)

      •  That we do, and thank you, too - I'm happy to help (1+ / 0-)

        gladden you. But no more deleting of less than perfect diaries, please, okay? That's not cricket. If you did make them perfect, you'd only offend Allah anyway.

        For a crash course in my favorite music, here are 30-16 and here are 15-1 of my 30 greatest Rock Double LPs. Alas, less than half the videos I linked to two years ago still work. Yes, I'll have to write some more Rock diaries soon.

          i had nearly forgotten something i once loved so much i listened to virtually nothing else, Miles Davis' Bitches Brew.  thank you x 10 zillion.  hotlisted both of these and some i haven't even heard of, but the others?  a stellar list.  and what a talent you have in writing about music.  i am even all the more happy to have made your acquaintance. ;)

            & I really need them - I have a huge ego to support.

            Miles is such an interesting, ambitious, original character and musician. Around the time of Bitches Brew he told a bandmember that he didn't play ballads anymore because "he liked them too much".

            I want to write more on music, in part, because there is a raw and wordless experience there. So, if I stay wide awake, I can avoid the glib lingo & the tired cliche. I can write about the spark & the epiphany of hearing freshly.

            I come from a family of professors, and bookchat comes easy to me, like ballads to Miles. I want to say something new, in a voice of my own. Also, I'd like to edit like Teo Macero.

            I'm very happy to have made your acquaintance, too. We gotta be careful, though. If we keep chatting like this, we'll be friends before we know it ;~)
