I think I am going to expose people to 8-11 minute songs that need to be that length. Hopefully it will break some stereotypes.

There is a report out that says Justine Henin is going to retire.

No. She is the best female tennis player out there.

I haven't decided on my introduction CD completely yet, either. I was definitely going to have Husker Du, not that they're unknown, of course, but because more people should respect their body of work from 84-85. I came to this decision when noticing that a curiously large number of people seem to think Candy Apple Grey their best album. You can't possibly say this if you've heard Zen Arcade, Flip Your Wig or New Day Rising (Howzat? Three albums in two years).

And the others - uh, I have no idea. Gene Krupa or something, heh.

Part of me wants to introduce you all to Sun Ra but it might blow your minds.

I'm trying to demonstrate the genre's diversity, and that it's not just long songs - though I am using plenty of those, and I feel morally obliged to close the tracklist with the 26:06 Stranger In Your Soul by Transatlantic. Anesthetize by PT is also there to melt a few faces. I mean, holy shit, the middle section of Anesthetize live in Brisbane is the best live moment of music I've heard in my life, excluding One Tree Hill. I was lightheaded from headbanging afterwards.

Heh, I was reminded of you after reading one of the worst album lists ever put online, which mentions Zen Arcade as an album you should remove from your music collection (as well as War, JT, and Zooropa). I don't like a lot of what's on that list, but whoever wrote it is a fucking idiot talking out of their arse.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the Husker Du stuff you include. Wasn't Zen Arcade recorded in something ridiculous like just two days? I'd like to see U2 do THAT!

Heh, some of that list was pretty funny. I'm sure there was a bit of piss taking.

If he thought Zen Arcade was an unlistenable mess (How the fuck is Never Talking to You Again unlistenable? It's a goddamn acoustic song under two minutes long!) the guy would kill himself if he heard Land Speed Record. I'm a huge Husker fan, but I couldn't tell the difference if that album were played backwards.

And yes, Zen Arcade was completely finished in about 85 hours. It's the best album made in that time you'll ever hear.

A lot of the list brings the lulz, but often in the sense of "this is just daft". Most of the reasons don't even make sense. I guess in that sense, it's much like EYKIW!

Let's lock U2 in a room, tell them we'll come back in 100 hours, and release whatever they've made. In the eighties, that probably would have produced their best album ever. Today, I bet it will produce the following album:

1. Beautiful Week
2. Levitating To Get Vertigo From Elevation
3. Sometimes You're Stuck In The World You Look At Beneath Her Feet
4. Kneel
5. Soul
6. The Goal
7. Original Hands That Built New York
8. All Because Of Xanax And Fast Cars
9. Summer Rain In Blinding Cities
10. Kneeling
11. Yahweh's Graceful Mercy

Whoa, I actually really agree with this, and I'm a Coltrane fan:

"
Most jazz created after the Big Band era is essentially musical masturbation (and like masturbation, if you must do it, you should do it in private!). It's self-indulgent noodling interesting only to the person playing it, a few fetishists, and lots of psuedo-intellectuals and wannabe hipsters who have to pretend to like it because it's "cool." "

I can't possibly agree. Jazz is about releasing one's emotions unedited. It is not masturbation. Jazz post big band is the best because it is playing while in a trance. The musician is giving in to the passion inside themselves. Coltrane was one of the best at this.

Truly, said by someone who has never masturbated.

I love a lot of post big band jazz, but the majority of it is exactly as described, to me. It's something I can appreciate and be fascinated with, but not completely dig.

I think the trance thing was still there before the 50s. The difference is, songs weren't fifteen minutes long.
