I'm currently listening to Digitally Imported's "chillout" stream. I guess I could say some of this music really sounds like Tomorrowland noise, a lot of computer generated sounds. It basically un-stresses me, although sometimes it gets to be a bit much when there's a whole track with someone talking backwards or something.
When I'm not seeking out something relaxing online, it's all about the XM Radio. Local radio has so many commercials that they fill up half my commute. I've been subscribed to XM since the start of 2003 and while I haven't always been happy with their programming decisions, one listen of FM is enough to remind me why I decided to pay for radio in the first place.
I also own an iPod, but it's mostly used for listening to audiobooks and moving data files between computers.
So, what I'm listening to at the moment is SILENCE, although, I'm thinking about putting in The Hives in a moment.
I love the Hives and I am so pissed off! In NZ they have a big music thing called the Big Day Out, but I didn't buy any tickets, Well yesterday I was watching TV and the Hives are apparently going to be there! GAH! I wanted to see them, but now its too late to arrange transport etc etc. Oh well C'est la vie.
I've been listening to a lot of George Harrison lately. I just downloaded a bunch of Traveling Wilbury tunes and have been playing them for the past couple days. I've also been working on a Harrison analytical site (stolen...influenced by miceage) so that's contributed to my listening habits.
Disregard what I said about not going to the concert a huge possiblity has just opened! I might be able to see The Hives, System of a Down and the Beastie boys and MORE! WOO HOO! I'm keeping my fingers crossed, I just need to find loopholes in foreign exchange rules and stuff.
Oooooh! I have always wanted to see the Beastie Boys live. I would be ever so jealous if you see them live. You will have to give us (me) a full report if you go. I have heard that they are great live.
Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.
On an Elton John/Billy Joel kick at the moment.....
How about together? I love that duet of "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me."
Beastie Boys... Man, they've been around a while, haven't they? I didn't really know about them until later than most people, I suspect. They were on either Leno or SNL or some show like that in the past month, and while they still got it together musically, they looked a little too old for that suburban ghetto wear they were sporting. The whole Daddies In Throwbacks gig almost looked like an SNL skit itself.
