Oh, that one moment with the lights down low. He's got sweat stinging his eyes and he keeps reaching up to them, pushing thick hair of the way. He wants to see them--his crowd.

And just like that, his fingers are on the neck of his guitar, fondling the frets.

"I played this, for the first time. It was in the shower, with my acoustic."

Oh God, mutters Tim, braced all the way in the back of the club. Someone will have gotten that online, and while Dick's turning fans into stalkers in person here (how could they resist?), a percentage will come from a virtual world--those future towns they'll visit. The cities, where encounters are just waiting to happen. It'll be hell to run security at future shows, Dick. Every time you open your damn mouth...

"It sounded terrible," laughs the man commanding all of their attention. "I wrote it for you."

At this point I'd love to:

--embed something here--

The problem is, I've got nothing new. Coldplay "Yellow" goes good with damn near anything, but this is old hat. And "Inside of Love" by Nada Surf is a close second, though that's likely because when I hum one, I inadvertently get sucked into the other. My brain thinks their guitars are the same, even though I think that's just a glitch in my memory.

I posted New Pornographers, which is my current newcomer lately, last weeks.

There's the new Death Cab (meaning old, I just found it late)...I don't think "Long Division" would be something Dick would sing. Tim would write it, but it's not something Dick would sing...I may even have shared that months ago. I can't remember.



Sooooo, how about someone share music with me for once. If Dick's serenading the world (possibly to annoy Tim--attention is attention) what the heck is he playing?

My brain automatically went here in regards to bathroom music. Which is funny, because it was singing in the shower which lead to said-drabble.

I've never encountered Promise Ring prior to today. They invite further attention, though I think I'm often hooked by bands immediately with a more aggressive tempo. Promise Ring sounds like a drifting along, lassez-faire type mentality. A "content" as opposed to a "something's wrong" kind of meaning that I get from a lot of DCfC.

Does any of that make sense?

Ah! Lawrence Arms reminds me of Brand New. Boy that takes me back. My best friend got me into the Brand New craze, and she could get into bands like nobody else I knew could. I'm definitely footnoting them for future over-listening.

I know the Jealous Sound. :3 "Hope for Us" grabbed me, and it makes me think of the whole Odyssey, in a way. Of long journeys and things far too powerful being far too interested in plaguing you. Did you honestly believe, that you could ever leave/ any time that you'd want?

Mmmmm.

Please do list music all day. When I can spare an evening, I'll put as much strange sounds on my playlist. This time around, I'll be sure to list who gave me what. My old flist used to throw good sounds, and I'd loose track of appreciating who with what.

Hi. One more?

In the vein of "Long Division"...

Built to Spill - "Carry the Zero".
