Something must break

Music

Ryan Adams & Mandy Moore


Usually, I don’t give a damn about Hollywood couples. What I mean is, I don’t care whether they stay together or split up or whatever. They are usually just something that exists, but I sort of see it as only another show they put on to get more fans or to give some drama for the gossip magazines to write about. But there is one couple I hope stay together. I didn’t realize I cared too much about this either before I just now googled them. When I saw them together, I really felt “wow…these two really should stay together!”. And, which you’ve probably already taken from the title, the couple is Ryan Adams and his wife, Mandy Moore.

 

I am a huge fan of Ryan Adams, and as most people know, music (and arts in general) tend to get better with heartaches. But I feel Ryan Adams have already suffered enough. He has put out so much music that is so heartfelt and seems to have been through tons of shit. And now he’s married. And the last album he released (“Ashes & Fire”) was actually one of the best albums he’s ever made (and his wife is singing in the background of one of the songs)!

I really wish all the best for this married couple. I hope they stay together for ever.

This post is going to be informative. That is what it’s all about.

 

You see, it will be about something I will try from now on to make. It is going to be called “Sonic Lizzzten” (as a pun between my nick name and the word “listen”). It will be a radio show, hosted by me, where I talk about many things here in life, but most importantly, music. I will recommend music to listen to, talk about music history, and I will even play songs (just like an ordinary radio show), but the songs will be bootlegs, as I otherwise might get into some legal trouble (and I do not believe I will if I use bootlegs, but we’ll see).

 

It will start some time soon, but when it is up, I don’t quite now. It also will probably not be regularly to a specific day of the week, as this is almost impossible to keep. To begin with, it will be hard to know when the next show will arrive, but I am planning to at least try to keep it as regular as one show per week in December (when I hopefully move out).

 

I hope someone likes this idea, and if someone has any suggestion as to how I should broadcast them, please do leave replies on that. Otherwise, it’ll probably be SoundCloud or YouTube or something. Let me know if you even have an opinion on which of these services you’d rather prefer I used.

 

That’s it for now! I will start WordPressing more soon!


More Than You Know


Tite: Eddie Vedder – More Than You Know

 

There’s THAT album. That ONE album you JUST CAN’T wait for the prices to lower before you buy it. That one album you can’t let Spotify ruin the spirit of. That one album you realize really NEEDS to be in a physical version and which you really NEED to get NOW, because you can’t risk waiting any longer. It is already too much like an album of your dreams to stay away from it. It deserves the extra cash you use to get it NOW and not in a few months time.

 

I came across THAT album of this year for me today, and had to buy it. It is Eddie Vedder‘s “Ukulele Songs”. How can you not like – no – LOVE the idea of an album with one of the most beautiful voices known to the music industry making an album where he only has the instrument of a ukulele to accompany him!? But that’s not even all there is to love to it! Several songs on the album (“More Than You Know“, “”Once In A While“, “Tonight You Belong To Me” and “Dream A Little Dream”) are covers of old time 20’s and 30’s songs! It is an album that cannot be missed to me, but that I still have a major problem seeing why is so popular to others.


If you want to expand your mind…


I just thought up a genius idea! At least it is to me. What if I made an arrangement, where all of you saved up about…£5 each month or each week, and then I told you something you ought to get for that price or less! What do you all think of it?

Most of the time, it would probably be like a CD or a DVD at Play.com, where they don’t charge you for shipping. It would be a great way to expand your collection and expand your taste and knowledge.

Let me know and get back to me. I could just do like a post a week where I recommended an item and told you a bit about it and so on.

I guess you can sort of call the whole idea for a “purchase club”, just like there are book clubs and so on.


Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?

Title: Frank Zappa – Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?

Why did I stop listening to Frank Zappa?:

This is a question I asked myself earlier today, and found I didn’t know why. I listened to him at ALL time about 3/4 of a year ago, and listened him up to a 3d place in my Last.fm, but then I suddenly stopped and haven’t heard a single song by him afterwards. And no matter how hard I try to remember, I can’t remember quite exactly what the reason was. I sometimes do this thing. I lose memories of things that have been important to me earlier or later on. For example can I not remember Alexander in 8th grade, though he was one of my best friends in 9th grade, 10th grade and before 8th grade as well. I’ve tried to remember SOMETHING, just having seen him, but I can’t. Not because he wasn’t present in the classroom, but because I just can’t.

Why I keep forgetting things like this, I don’t know. I’m not sure if I want to start listening again or not, but some things I can not redo or undo…or actually, most things you can’t undo. You can just make up for it or try to prevent it from going further.

I Want You So Bad It’s Driving Me Mad

Title: The BeatlesI Want You (She’s So Heavy)

I just learned something interesting about this song today. Though I’ve listened to it A LOT of times, I haven’t really thought about how easy this almost-8-minutes-long-song lyrics is. Do you want to know how easy of a lyrics its got? There’s only 14 different words in it! It’s still one of my favorite songs EVER, though, but that’s quite fascinating, isn’t it? That (one of) the greatest band EVER has a long, cool, kinda heavy song that’s only got FOURTEEN different words in it.

If you haven’t heard it, you should definitely check it out. The preferred way is of course to buy the The Beatles In Stereo box…or just the Abbey Road album in newly remastered stereo version, but if you want to hear it NOW, then go here then: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnF91s2bBpg
