my fave LP by his is ZOOLOOK. who the nerd now?
Zoolook definitely has it’s moments, chief among them being it’s opener, “Diva”.
blueguitar replied to your post: So some punk ass little Tina fiend from the trailer park said that the Fiona Apple I was listening to was weird white kid music as he tried to purchase a chicken bone:
WTF! is this about? you opened a wing stand outside yr house. KY? is it crack or cracker?
I work at a smoke shop.
Edie Brickell is the shit.
And Fiona Apple’s new album transcends all of the things and now she’s a matured bad ass. Seriously blue, listen to it, if you’re disappointed… then I don’t know what to tell ya’ coz’ there are SOOOO many moments on “the idler wheel” that make my hair stand on end.
you have a hubby and a roomie???
Yup, lol. I live in a pretty sizable house, so there’s enough room for my husband and I to share a room, my roomie to have her own room, my mom to have her own room, and each of us, (besides the roomie), to have our own offices. We also have a full living room, two bathrooms, (one upstairs, one downstairs), and a full kitchen and separate utility room.
i never get “asks” but i’ll treat this as one. last movie i wished i neer saw was the tintin thingie and me and the hubby really wanted to like it but what a waste! movies that made me cry? i cried at “scrooged” and the remake of “cape fear”
well, then i’ll just throw little things off - like car parts, bottles, and cutlery, or whatever i find lying around… i’ll give you bjork (no matter where she goes henceforth) but i can’t believe you went trent before bowie. w/out DB, there is no
I was not trent BEFORE bowie! I grew up on ziggy stardust. However, I’m not gonna’ lie, I definitely did like, get reintroduced to him. Without Trent, I don’t think I would have appreciated “Low” as much as I do now, as I think that “Low” is probably my favorite David Bowie album. Honestly, if we’re splittin’ hairs here, (lol), I kinda’ think that if anyone from the generation of artists, (remember, praise the artist, not the paint), that came out of the 80’s and are still going strong creating new and interesting art, Trent is the stand-out choice for receiving Bowie’s mantle. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard an interview or two in which Bowie says something pretty similar to that.
I know that a lot of what early nails represents is pure ugliness and exaggerated teen angst, but even that material possesses some early signs of the dude’s outrageous compositional genius. I don’t use that word a lot: Genius. It gets bantered around far too often, but in this case I think it rings true. A lot of folks, we’ll call them “industrial-purists” to save from sounding ad hominem, claim that Trent ruined industrial, poppifying it and making it too sleek and sexy. So. Fucking. Be. It. Along the way, the dude also singlehandedly altered the landscape of pop music, influencing production techniques across the board. I can’t think of one single “modern” musical genre, (meaning things unlike pop country and other things of that nature that cling on to anachronistic techniques), that don’t borrow HEAVILY from Trent’s approach. Isn’t that pretty much what Bowie did? Everything that came after him had a little bit of a Bowie flavor to it, whether it be visual, musical, or simply sound architecture wise. The reason I named Trent before Bowie was because personally speaking, if I hadn’t found “The Downward Spiral” when I was 13 years old, I wouldn’t be the same person at all, musically or personally.
So there :P
Ugh… I love that you and I can have these conversations, they’re the stuff of LIFE! I wish we could have a drink, a smoke, and sit around and have them in person for DAAAAAYS because I get the feeling that, were we ever to meet, that’d be EXACTLY what would happen.
what is your most guilty musical pleasure? maybe one so embarrassing you have yet to reveal it?
whoops, I only just caught this after I made the video response and it’s currently uploading to YouTube so I’ll answer this here:
Sometimes, only sometimes, a lil’ Coldplay can hit the spot. Everything else I’m pretty much proud of.
*so. much. shame.*
adam ant is gay?
Hahaha! jesus lord no… he is a straight up womanizing sex fiend. Lol… besides that we’re peas in a fuckin’ pod.
