Holy mother of god!

Apart from the sound of my kids playing the modern equivalent of a slot-car game via x-box, I have been listening to a favourite of mine from years back:

To our children's children's children by The Moody Blues (1970)




and an acquisition from Auckland:
Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood live at Madison Square Garden (2008)

"One cannot step twice into the same river, nor can one grasp any mortal substance in a stable condition, but it scatters and again gathers; it forms and dissolves, and approaches and departs."

I am listening to the hum of the refridgerator, the computer fan, the phone ringing and the tippity-tappity of the keyboard...the wonders of modern technology. :ugeek:

When a person posts a video at youtube they have the opportunity to make it upload only on youtube and not available for embedding on other sites. Only a small percentage do that. You may be able to find someone else who uploaded the same video who did not put that stipulation.

Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Ting tings, petshop boys and Le Roux
the embedding is disabled on these I didn't listen to the first two on my list here as I knew the songs but Le Roux was the one I was refering to.

I'm listening to "2 Minutes to Midnight" by Iron Maiden right now.... BUT....

SHAMELESS PLUG DISCLAIMER
The following is a shameless plug for music I have myself written. As a rubbish musician you should be aware that listening to music I have created is at your own risk. Any time spent listening to my music cannot be refunded.


... I will be listening to "Searching for some other truth" at http://www.myspace.com/mawkish1983 in a bit. I have two version of the song there (one with a piano harmony and one without) and I'm trying to work out which one I should keep and which should be forever purged. I've put it to the public vote but so far only two people have voted. For more info, see the blog on that page.

Greetings Mawkish,

Definitely keep the piano... maybe even complement it with some organ and some strings?

Listening to this, you may have already done so, but check out some Type O Negative... particularly something like...
