So I'm gathering maybe not many of you read those end-of-the-decade lists? Or do you? I've been reading them all, and found it interesting that, for instance, no grime appeared on any American lists, but did on NME's. There's still some rationality, even within the confines of what I tend to (probably unfairly) think of homogeneity central

I've learned that the music that excites me the most is something I've never heard before that has some combination of known and unknown that it somehow triggers exhilaration. And since I've been regular listener of WFMU for the last 9 months that happens a few times a week. I just wish I had time to consolidate, need to start a list to keep track.

I sometimes listen to end-of-year best-if shows and know none of it. That's how I hear about it. Like I said I'm older. Does one maybe cross a threshold of non-awareness at a certain age? Or is that too stereotypical?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm
Gary:

It reminds me of this admittedly stupid but heartfelt anti-tech tweet I wrote but didn't post, something like: Hey I got this great idea of how to disrupt all of the shitty rip-off streaming and youtube and other online "services" ... what if we were to create a space ... like, a physical space ... where a person could go and ... find music there that they would purchase in various "music-retaining-containers" of one kind or another? And position these spaces here and there throughout the country ... so that every person could easily get to one or more of them ...

Loved your FB pics, Ike!

Dean! OMG, Kit Robinson, I never thought I'd see his name here. Great poet

Ike:

Thanks! The pics came out great but IDK if I’d return. Next time maybe Malaysia or Indonesia instead.

Dean:

Was combing through recent issues of Poetics Today, where I saw a review of a "guide" to certain new poetries edited by Lyn Hejinian and Barrett Watten. The review mentioned Kit and his brother, Nick. Nick's wife, by the way, is Laura Moriarty, whose poetry is marvelous.

In the interest of connecting more of the dots, I'll note that this Friday night Dave Rempis, Darren Johnston, and Larry Ochs are slated to perform at a house in North Berkeley nearby. Wish I could go. Ochs is, of course, Mr. Lyn Hejinian.

Yep, but Laura has retired, as has Nick. I reside walking distance from SPT.

Larry! Ike, I listened to Polly's original and Maii's cover back to back recently and I know it is blaspheme and will get me kicked out of music world but I prefer Maii's

I dig PJ Harvey, her last 2 albums (in this decade Gary) are challenging lyrically.
