I tend to categorize music by when it should be listened to. I suppose it's based on the mood it elicits within my brain. SO what would i recommend for today?
Glad you asked (did't you?), here's a few,
Friday night - helmet
Best Saturday morning music - black label society - hangover music
Sunday morning - Crosby stills and nash...maybe with young.
But i'm always on the lookout for good new music and here's a few i thought i'd pass on!
Although not technically new, this album is awesome. it falls somewhere around the sunday afternoon category.
Raising Sand - Alison Krauss and Robert Plant.
Having seen Plant's recent zeppelin renditions, i was fairly well convinced that he'd lost his talent. But having heard these two together..there's no doubt he can still sing. and quite well, even at a reasonable decibel! I Highly recomend this.
Matt Jones and the Reconstruction
This was the only website i could find for these guys...you can get the album off itunes. Very unique music. Again, it's mellow (no i'm not going soft), but very creative. Here are a few songs to wet your whistle on....start with "Threadline"...there's a real variety of sound on this song. Then listen to "One Cotton Shot Short". Lastly check out "Jugulars, Bones and Blisters". The guitars and keyboards in the middle are great
Lastly, if something a little more raucous is what you're looking for, check out Black Merda. They'e an older band..but really good.
If you want something hard, but instrumental, check out the Hotel City Wreckers. This would probably fall under early saturday evening...or reeeally late saturday evening music. Couldn't find a website for these guys...
Ok..one more. Check out Starchild. The singer takes a bit of getting used too, but he (and the music) grown on you the more you listen.
Not if you're the US Government. Their solution is not to stop digging, but rather to borrow money, buy more shovels, and hire workers to help dig.
From Sec. Geithner's letter to congress last week on raising the debt ceiling,
"It is critically important that Congress act before the limit is reached so that citizens and investors here and around the world can remain confident that the United States will always meet its obligations."
We need to borrow more to promote confidence? I've been doing it wrong all these years!
So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
