I'll just say that musicianship and technical prowess are only means to an end; in themselves they are a vacuous way to judge music. I can name dozens of garbage bands that are highly technically proficient.

This was something that always bothered me about certain musicians.

I mean, would you rather listen to Steve Vie or The Ramones all day?  This can easily be applied to Jazz and classical too.

There is a quote attributed to Charles Mingus that I like:

"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creative.”

I don't know, I'm almost certainly reading to much into this, but to me that sounds very much in tune with a Christian intuition when it comes to aesthetics.

I don't listen to metal, but it was useful for me to hone my bass skills.  I don't know how technical tool is off hand, but I wouldn't be surprised if metal (particularly the rhythm section, especially the drums) had the best technical musicians in rock and roll.  No way could I play bass on a full set of much of that live when I was at the top of my game

Alright, I give in. You're okay.

+1

Agree completely re: Ramones vs Steve Vai. From what I heard, the Ramones did advance to a certain point where, if they wanted to, they could be a "technical" band. They simply chose not to. Would a Ramones song be improved by jolting time changes and dazzling arpeggios? I don't think so.

Charles Mingus' The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is one of my all-time favorite recordings in any genre.
Quote
But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

The Silvertones - True Confession
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

I am listening to the Moana soundtrack a lot lately because that is what the younger kids want to listen to. For a Disney soundtrack it isn't all that bad.

The Score to the movie Glory.  A sentimental favorite in both music and movies.   This movie may have been the first time I ever saw any of the actors (Morgan Freeman, Mathew Brodrick, Danziel Wasington, Carey Elwes).  It was one of the first flicks I saw in theaters.  Maybe I saw Brodrick and Elews slightly earlier in Princess Bride and Ferris, I'm not sure.  I didn't see those movies in theaters though.

O strange Orthodox Church, so poor and weak, with neither the organization nor the culture of the West, staying afloat as if by a miracle in the face of so many trials, tribulations and struggles; a Church of contrasts, both so traditional and so free, so archaic and so alive, so ritualist and so personally involved, a Church where the priceless pearl of the Gospel is assiduously preserved, sometimes under a layer of dust; a Church which in shadows and silence maintains above all the eternal val
