Right, because you know more about what I'm thinking, than I do.

Arcade Fire just released their new video:

(and although I was a little disappointed they didn't find Justin Bieber's corpse at the end, the video is still funny)

Been listening to this every day for the past week:

Richard Wagner - The Ring Without Words

So you mean to tell me that a song about the "parallel between looking in the eyes of [his] (deceased) son, and the eyes of the father that [he] never met, through the chain of [their] blood" makes you feel discouraged, demoralized, makes you lose confidence and determination? Not that it's, say, heartbreaking?

I hate psychedelic rock. I hate Brit rock. I hate most stuff white people did in the '60s.

Could be true...
And as one of the current top comments says, "It's pretty sad that the highest voted comment on a video solely about musical talent is one that reduces a highly skilled woman down to her ability to sexually please a man. You've really broke the mould for originality there."

Anyway, they're good enough; overrated. But then there's this cat who was backing them for awhile: Alfredo Hechavarria Ruddock.

WU-TANG's GZA raps and rhymes on StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Kinda odd the part where Tyson is astounded by the idea that musical lyrics could influence a person's thought processes and subsequent direction in life, particularly on an intellectual level, like that's a novel concept to him. "I don't know anyone who has listened to any other performer, who can make that claim." Really, Neil? I mean, even in pop music, especially being of his generation—since it's nearly non-existent these days—this is a cat who grew up in the 60's and 70's. And of course meaningful, consciousness-raising lyrics in popular music go back decades before that period, too. But I digress.

Anyway, I don't like much rap or hip-hop, but Liquid Swords is somethin' else.

To paraphrase Rossini, Wagner has its moments but it also has its hours. :P

Man, does it ever. For those of you reading this who don't know, Wagner's operas are some of the longest and most demanding of all musical endeavors. The link I posted above is 75 minute medley of music from The Ring Cycle, an opera that takes 4 days to complete, roughly 15 hours of music. Wagner wrote it over a 25 year period. He has several other epic works, but some of his stuff is rather flat. Even still, he may be my favorite composer, or at least in the top 5.

I'm in a weird state with music right now. If I'm not listening to the classics, I'm listening to Hindi and Punjabi dance music, like this. *Shrug* I had to do sound for a Bollywood style party in ritzy La Jolla, CA last weekend and was like, "oh yeah, I forgot I liked this stuff."

I can never really listen to Wagner because the Bayreuth festival and the latests fights of the Wagner family is in the news the entire year (they're a bit like the Gallaghers from Oasis, actually)...and the best segment is used in almost every soundtrack, for the scene when the evil genius (preferably some Nazi) shows up :P

Regarding classical music, perhaps some of you like this piece by Shostakovich or the Solveig's Song by Grieg, or Mahler, or Prokofiev? I knew the composers but didn't really know anything by them aside from their more popular works until some weeks ago. The only classical album I used to have was Mussorgsky's/Ravel's Pictures at an Exhibition (but I suppose everyone here knows this one).

As I was reading sinewav's post, I was just about to reply that the likes of Shostakovich and Schoenberg are among my favorites (to the extent I have favorites of anything).
