Cycling through my usual 'story writing aids' suspects: Nox Arcana, Midnight Syndicate, Ramin Djawadi, Anonymous 4, Mediaeval Baebes, Adrian von Ziegler, and the year's new addition, Peter Crowley.

Forgot just how good this is.

I don't listen to youtube because Lauryn Hill isn't there.
To my shame, I may have been very drunk when I wrote this.

My Lyric Opera season is about to start.

The three Operas this year:

My first show is going to be George Bizet's other opera called the Pearl Fishers.  Off the top of my head, I don't think I've ever heard anything from it before, I always try to use one of my tickets on something I've never heard.

Lyric's description:
For sheer transcendent beauty, Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers has few rivals in the entire repertoire. The opera’s famed duet for tenor and baritone is a soaring melody that has turned countless opera newcomers into ecstatic fans. Bizet (who composed this work 12 years before Carmen) transports us to Ceylon, where two devoted friends find themselves in love with the same woman, an entrancingly beautiful priestess, Leïla. From its leading men and leading lady, The Pearl Fishers demands the ultimate in vocal beauty and elegance to do justice to this sweepingly romantic drama.


After that,

Turnadot.  This is my favorite by Puccini and one of my favorite operas in general.  Supposedly a promising up and comming Saprano by the name of Amber Wagner is very good in the title role

And finally,

Così fan tutte

(I've Had) The Time of My Life

Courtesy of my upstairs neighbor. Same apartment but different person from the dude who did the racist rants. Quieter overall, but sometimes has coughing fits and I'm half afraid I'm gonna have to go up there and check on them some time and find them dead :-\

Vigil for St Catherine (old calendar) from Mount Sinai.
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

"Stories of the Street," Leonard Cohen cover by That Petrol Emotion

From the really great 1991 tribute album, "I'm Your Fan." Also has R.E.M.'s awesome version of "First We Take Manhattan."

Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin: "Afro Blue"

This is the vintage Santana that most people don't know about. Amazing stuff.
