It's motivational poetry with a message I wholeheartedly endorse (from "Intro"):
I don't give a fuck what you do, just do whatever.
Don't fucking make excuses just do what you know how to do
and don't fucking make excuses, just do it.

I searched high and low for the album of music from the films of Jacques Tati that had the most music from his films. This search took me to France, of course it did, and to Tati Sonorama ! which is 39 tracks and 01:19:25 of bubbles.

Iona Fortune's Tao Of I, released on Optimo Music last month, is the first in a series of eight releases exploring the symbols of the I Ching, the oldest Chinese divination text (the core text dates somewhere between the 10th and 4th centuries BC) and still heavyweight champion.

I had a dream that I lived in a world where I could listen to darn near any music of my choosing, watch darn near any movie I wanted, buy things from darn near anywhere in the world and look at darn near any art all without ever leaving my Aeron Chair.

Sometimes it takes me some time. You know, to get it. And that's OK.

I didn't know what to expect from Arca's new self-titled album so when I hit Play in Roon, I was taken by surprise by its sheer overwhelming bruised beauty.

Have you ever been driving and listening to the radio when a song comes on that you knew you needed to hear but had never heard before? I love it when that happens.

Have you ever heard someone say something like, "'80's music sucked"? Or "'70's", or "'90's", etc...? How about "Today's music sucks"? If you have, and you're anything like me, you may have felt a mild sense of pity for the fool. Or anger. Great music is made, always. Just because it wasn't made when we were teenagers doesn't discount it from being great (sorry).

One of my favorite book titles, and books, is Peter Handke's The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick. I was reminded of the goalie when thinking about how best to describe the feeling I get when a friend sends over a music recommendation.

Free Your Mind...And Your Ass Will Follow, originally released in 1970, is a stone cold classic. George Clinton & Co. are in top form and when Funkadelic are in top form, there's no higher high.

"West Africa’s most iconic dance-band". Sunnier days. I first found Orchestra Baobab through their 2015 release Pirates Choice. Digging that, and digging back into their catalog, Bamba (Sterns, 1993) rung my bell the mostest. This is beautiful soulful dance music that makes me want to close my eyes and imagine other sunnier climes.

Reassemblage, Visible Cloaks' 2nd full-length released on VNG Intl. last month, reminds me of one of William Gibson's worlds. Machine music, computer music, glitchy ambient exotica streaming from the ether of tomorrow, now.

I'm with Ministry's Al Jourgensen; The Land Of Rape And Honey is my favorite Ministry album.
