Dutronc is the king of cynical quotes, probably the only person worthy of those small quotations books you often see at library counters.

"I have absolutely nothing to say but I want to make sure everyone knows it" (my translation, your loss )

I've been listening to Amy Winehouse's Back to Black recently. Just got it on Saturday and really love it.

Fantastic album.

I've been listening to "Set yourself on fire" by The Stars. I remember seeing them at the black cat two years ago. Great band.

I've been listening to Beethoven's late string quartets as of late, right now the 5th movement from string quartet No. 13, Opus. 130 is playing and it simply rips your heart out. Especially when one considers that he wrote it after he had gone completely deaf. You simply feel his sorrow, his longing. There is such beauty in that longing. Truly, there are no words to describe it.

Jon.

Right now, I'm listening to a Charlie Parker disc. The version he does of "Lover Man" makes me cry almost every single time. As someone in another thread noted, he was so staggeringly drunk that 2 or 3 people had to literally hold him up to the microphone. The sheer power that you hear in this song is mind-blowing. It's hard to believe so much emotion can be packed into ~3 minutes.

Too bad rehab killed a lot of his talent. I have a hard time listening to anything he did with strings. Coleman Hawkins is still my main man.

I don't like the Bird with strings all that much. I mean, it's not bad, but much more simplistic than his earlier stuff.

Just Friends, though it contains strings and was during the period where he recorded popular songs because he needed the money, is still pretty damn good. The opening run still blows me away, which is just a testament to how he was so melodically interesting at all times. Guy was a fucking genius.

Seriously...fuck dance music. These past few months have been a wasteland for me with all the big releases being some combination of post-house, electro-punk, dance-punk, indie-dance, Italo disco, etc. I think it's safe to say it's this year's fad, and I'm well past bored.

I've been listening to James Blackshaw's "The Cloud of Unknowing", which is amazing, but I need my fix!!!

Oh, and the new Stars single is pretty, I guess.
