Then and now musical comparisons.

I’ve seen a bunch of these sorts of things:

This type of image is always wrought with selectively biased points, yet always attracts a coo of agreement from anyone who isn’t a tweenage girl. In other words, while the statements are true, the point is quite misleading. I could go on a tirade about how the internet has made music much more expansive than it’s ever been in all of history, but I’ll just leave it at this:

Morcheeba – Blood Like Lemonade

Fans of Trip Hop will like this one.  I am a huge fan of the merging of hip-hop and blues.  The downtempo chill-out vibes emanating from my hi-fi.  Good stuff.  Incomplete sentences.

Dig it.  Good album to relax to… Or make out, if that’s more your style.

Personal favorite tracks:

The truth is, Santana really knows how to rock it out with a guitar:

Citizen Cope/Santana – Sideways

That’s all.  I just felt like sharing.  Also, this song makes me feel good, and bad.  With it’s melancholy underpinnings, and spine-tingling guitar, it just seeps emotion… At least, that’s how I feel.  The great thing about music is that it speaks to everyone differently.



General footnote:  Happy Holidays, everybody!  Remember, this is a holiday about giving.  As I imagine most of you are like me and live in the wealthiest nation in the world, how about you go check out The Life You Can Save and make a donation to those less fortunate.  If you find yourself with a moral dilemma in regards to feeding the hungry vs. population control, you can walk on over to Wikipedia, and check out the Demographic-Economic Paradox and rest assured that you are, in fact, doing the right thing.

Wood That Works

I just saw this guy’s work today, and he’s basically my newest hero:

His work basically exemplifies my ideal form of art.  If anyone asked me “what did you create your blog for” it would be to showcase stuff like this.  Preferably stuff like this that I made, but, I haven’t… yet.
