i've begun acclimatization to pre-1980 music, as was suggested to me by murph himself. bnads (i was going to correct that typo but i think i like bnads better) include: the velvet undergound, bowie, the beach boys (my aunt actually has pet sounds on vinyl), the kinks... and despite an inexplicable life-long grudge, the beatles (my distaste exists on two levels: one, i think my parents used to listen to them; and 2, i've heard them referred to as the first boy band). not so inexplicable after all i guess.
i've no real intention of exploring any other older stuff presently, except your momma. i would still take recommendations, assuming you've perused my album list and think there is something i'd like. just pimp it out negroes.
i am now and have always been addicted to new releases and invention/exploration in music, but i realize that it's important to recognize lineage and influence. but remember, one foot in tomorrow and one in yesterday means you're pissing on today (thank you AA).
and while i'm on the subject, i really wish every person with a blog would have some list with their favorite albums on it (there's that "favorite music" section of the profile, but that's too non-specific, i.e. complete crap). you can tell a great deal about people by the cd's they like. an on-line cd favs list would be the virtual equivalent of having up-skirt priveleges on someone. yeeowsah.
i honestly don't care what people put in a paragraph describing themselves. vanity or unawareness always skews a person's autobiographical information (if you have ever described yourself as "sexy" then we can't be friends anymore).
