Monday, June 20, 2005     « For a friend who has everything »


An evening of multi-tasking. Working, scanning, and listening to music.

I discovered a Nina Simone song that I hadn't previously enjoyed. Sometimes you have to be in the right mood to hear a song. I'm not depressed or miserable (I'm in a great mood) but this one is a kicker. It's your typical deathbed lament. I turned on the TV this past Sunday afternoon and managed to catch the Nina Simone documentary on the CBC ("Nina Simone, The Legend"). My brother has it on tape so I've seen it a few times before. My favourite part is when her brother says that her husband Andy didn't understand that at times an artist can hate the very thing they love the most.

Other songs I enjoyed this evening:

Candle - Sonic Youth
No More Affairs - Tindersticks
Night Swimming - REM
Train to Skaville - The Ethiopians
The Happening - The Pixies
Waltz #2 - Elliot Smith
Fight This Generation - Pavement
Bam Bam - Sister Nancy
