maiki’s post on musical influence made me think about what tracks made a dent in my brain this year, too. I posted a big comment that ended up being more for me than for him, so here it is on my own blaugh, plus some more. I think that most of these songs actually aren’t… Continue reading songs that dented my brain this year
I am obsessed with this album. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pure_Heroine There are so many gems in the lyrics. They all break my heart. I love the way “I’m kinda tired of being told to throw my hands up in the air, so there” is old and young and something about her voice, her voice, her voice. I can’t… Continue reading i live in a hologram with you
After maiki wrote about Lullatone, I got Songs that Spin in Circles because I am trying to relax. I like it. =) I’ll probably get Looping Lullabies next. I like the pure instrumentals more than the ones with vocals, even if they are background-level. I particularly like “Tops on a Table”, because it’s got this… Continue reading Lullatone
the arcade fire was fun. i like concerts. the greek theater was a good venue to see the arcade fire in, because there are a bunch of singalongs. 10 people onstage. in the top right, two horn players: one was on trumpet/french horn, and the other was on saxaphone/french horn. he’d let his giant sax… Continue reading arcade fire

Through berkeleyjew, I disovered the joys of “Finite Simple Group (of order 2)”, and now, so can you: http://www.math.northwestern.edu/~matt/kleinfour/ Regrettably I must admit that “Math you like a Broderick” now has competition.
The end of the trailer for “Unleashed” (Jet Li) has the instrumental backings (no vocals) from Muse’s “Apocalypse Please.” I like Muse. I like pianos. I don’t know what to think about the new Jet Li movie. It’ll make good use of the “Jet Li looks so cute and unassuming but actually he has lethal powers”… Continue reading Untitled
