Just so we’re all on the same page here…. 😉 this isn’t necessarily about singing, but some of that may pop up from time to time. This is about fun and sharing some of the things that I have found great pleasure in recently. Music, books; I’m not placing any limitations on it.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
One of the first things you notice in listening to these recordings is the quality of sound. Recording technology was different during at the time of many of these tracks and as such, we get a very different kind of sound. I am particularly fond of drums recorded during the period from the early sixties until the late seventies. The Glyn Johns technique is often used and it creates a very distinct and tight sounding rhythm section that I absolutely love.
Ready Player One
I just read this book. Once I started, it took two days and one of those days I stayed up until 4am because I just couldn’t put it down. Having grown up in the 80’s, this was a tour de force of nostalgia for the changes that I was surrounded with during those delicate teen years. I might actually go back and read it all over again….
Lorde – Green Light
What can I say? I’m a sucker for a break up song. Thing about this tune though, the narrator clearly indicates a desire but inability to move on while conveying a position of strength. Makes me feel a bit verklempt…
