The Louvin Brothers - Satan Is Real
https://open.spotify.com/track/7oXP56aUNn7ofMyLhvPhEK

This is awesome. Seemingly a Christian song but with lyrics more about Satan than God to the extent that it could be a Ghost's song without modifications. Why I have spent years listening to Black Metal when there's stuff like this available.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

WRTI (Temple University) is broken:

They were just playing some fine jazz, though. I like jazz.

A few different versions of one of my favorite melodies, music originally recorded by Andre Popp and lyrics by Pierre Cour. The song was made famous by Paul Mauriat's instrumental recording.

Wagner had some fine moments but ugly quarter-hours.

Rossini.

I'd much much rather listen to any of Rossini's lesser, churned out, un-ponderous, un-profound operas than a Wagnerian "profound and meaningful masterpiece".  If I was in that mood I'd rather listen to Berlioz or more talented, "less profound", men after Wagner, like Verdi...or the reader's digest, cliff notes, or Looney Tune version of Wagner if I had to bite the bullet.  I guess Wagner-like stuff works best on things like Hollywood film scores where the music plays an accompanying role, and when the music dies down the dialogue can be looked at as a recitative-centric production.

The first time I saw Parsifal I was at first confused, then rolling on the floor laughing.

Vacuous reasons entirely.  Obviously from someone who fails to appreciate good music.

I straightened out the quoting. No charge.

It is what it is, Scamandrius. It is not vacuous. I studied Wagner's opera scores for a grade. What you are complaining about is that I have been boycotting Wagner since I was a teen out of principle. That is my decision and right. I also have the right to express my opinion. Other people can take it or leave it, but I think it has merit.

then you really missed the point, didn't you?

If I have to concern myself to much with a "point" in a music theater production, it probably isn't worth my time and is often indicative of a problem with the work being presented.  Maybe that's why I found Wagner, and much of later German opera so funny.

And Opus has a point as well; if you have a person who is so tied to a message, you may as well respect that as part of the work.  Wagner is a new age goofball guru with a sick message, and he demanded that his audience participate in that message.  Opus gives Wagner more respect than I do, because I don't care about messages all that much - and I don't give Wagner's the time of day he damands for his.  If I did, I'd probably be a fan of Christian Rock.  I do respect Wagner as an artist in so much as he is unavoidable in his influence, which if I had to guess is a bit regressive - but such things are impossible to determine. As Ghengis Khan is to history, Wagner is to music. 

I wonder if there is a similarity, or perhaps a gene that occupies many Wagnerites and Heavy Metal fans..if it's a gene, I don't have it, I don't "get" it, nor do I want to.  I don't have that kind of profundity.  And while it is discouraging that heavy metal is big right now, it is encouraging that Verdi is more popular than Wagner.

Is that in reference to him as a composer or as a person?  If the latter, that should not be a deterrent to appreciating his great music.  I think know that Jaco Pastorius was a jerkbag in real life, but I still love his stuff.

Was that 2010? Wow.

That's impossible. My first DUI was 2007, which would have been 3 years prior (which it wasn't.)

I remember it was the year that I started the holiday "Star Wars" tradition. Not 1996?

I think 1996. That was my favorite song that year, I think. One of my favorite songs. Is it worth the $USD?

Could I "borrow" it? I have a smartphone.

But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

WRTI (Temple University) is broken:

WRTI Playlists and Programming Schedules | WRTI - http://wrti.org/wrti-playlists-and-programming-schedules

They were just playing some fine jazz, though. I like jazz.

Lord, have mercy.

I found how to listen to jazz at wrti.com, but I cannot explain it to you.

Consider what you owe to society, and don't let yourself be injured by too much work.
For the sake o' your feller-creeturs, keep yourself as quiet as you can; only think what a loss you would be!"

Today I have it on repeat, and I like it when the drums drop.

Suicidal - "Pop Songs" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAC9rItp5vQ

It's not my motto, but in this case it works.
"Now, don't allow yourself to be fatigued beyond your powers; there's a amiable bein'.
Consider what you owe to society, and don't let yourself be injured by too much work.
For the sake o' your feller-creeturs, keep yourself as quiet as you can; only think what a loss you would be!"

Chantal Kreviazuk, Hard Sail - an absolute gem, well worth the seven years of waiting.
Was that 2010? Wow.

2009. Hard Sail came out in 2016.

So good.

I am putting this under the listening category because I spent most of the time listening while making my garlicky version of Kentucky Fried Chicken:

John Legend - Start A Fire
https://open.spotify.com/track/3gGHAScxUDsJqcAM6ZvjuH

Went to see La La Land few days ago. Don't remember whether I've seen any musicals before but this one was super cute. I smiled through half of the movie just because it was cute.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
