In other discussions . . .

What makes the perfect song? That's the subject of this discussion. Laying out theories? Making lists? Justifying choices? Oh. My. God. This forum may have made my week.

I am SO not going there with you.

That's your world, squirrel. I'll be over here feelin' my nuts.

'Stine: No, no, no, it's all good and friendly. I think you'd find my list interesting; there are probably even some points on which you'll agree.

JJ: Oh, don't be a wuss. You have ears, right? You listen to music, right? It's only "my" world because I'm into it enough to have come up with a language for elucidating the various components of my subjective experience.

Speaking of which . . . How're you doing on the movies/music? We've just finished Scrubs. I have to admit, we got pretty hooked. How many seasons have there been so far?

the perfect song is a blend of sounds - music and lyric. The words are always limited by language, but the melodies and harmonies can be understood across all borders, man-made and self-made.

Far from perfection, my songs beckon you to enter a place of perfect peace. This is a place of realizing both the active and passive natures of our consciousness, where we together may discover our kinship and oneness.

Loving the music, but haven't gotten to the movies yet. Been working a lot lately in the evenings, and was sick for a couple days, too.

Scrubs is, I think, in season 5 right now. Seasons 1 to 3 are out on disc, and I have them all. I'll keep feeding your addiction.

I just don't have enough songs in mind, but perhaps I'll let this kick around my head and see what pops up.

I tend to like songs that make a progression, aren't verse-chorus-refrain based. Y'know, I rate Jeff Buckley's The Last Goodbye pretty high on that scale. But, lemme think of more.

Lyam, I'm taking Sept off, and looking for a few good bloggers to fill in as guests. Interested in doing a post?

Of course I would have to clear it first, to ensure that there is nothing insidious.

If so, shoot me an email (address is in my profile), and I can give you some parameters.

JJ - Have you listened to Sleepytime Gorilla Museum yet? If I can find out any dates with enough advance notice, I'd LOVE to get some of us to a show; there's really no way to do justice to their ouevre in a recording. Even 'Stine, who doesn't care for them, would be impressed (I think) by the sheer spectacle of THEM.

Bugblaster - Um . . . wow. I'm flattered, really, that you would invite me to do this, considering the ideological gulf between us. It's truly humbling. That said, I'm not sure what, if anything, I'd have to offer your audience in your absence. Let me mull it over, and I'll send you an email when I have some clearer thoughts on the matter.

Cool.

Eclectic. That's what I'm shooting for...
