Merry Christmas, Mr. Kappus

I don't want you to be without a greeting from me when Christmas comes and when you, in the midst of the holiday, are bearing your solitude more heavily than usual. But when you notice that it is vast, you should be happy;


for what (you should ask yourself) would a solitude be that was not vast; there is only one solitude, and it is vast, heavy, difficult to bear, and almost everyone has hours when he would gladly exchange it for any kind of sociability, however trivial or cheap, for the tiniest outward agreement with the first person who comes along, the most unworthy.


But perhaps these are the very hours during which solitude grows; for its growing is painful as the growing of boys and sad as the beginning of spring. But that must not confuse you. What is necessary, after all, is only this: solitude, vast inner solitude.

To walk inside yourself and meet no one for hours - that is what you must be able to attain. To be solitary as you were when you were a child, when the grownups walked around involved with matters that seemed large and important because they looked so busy and because you didn't understand a thing about what they were doing.
.....
....

So it goes

So you look for a path, going ahead and searching as if there could be a highway somewhere with a paved road laid out.
And sure, there are many. So many paths. How do you choose?
He says, 'It is not you who chooses. The Path chooses you'.



'He's a child,' she says. 'You don't choose a path, and a path doesn't choose you. Its a courtship. You look around, you flirt, something catches your eye. Suitors come and go, some obviously wrong for you, some that appear too perfect, some that you've perhaps experienced before. Your path is never your path, it has its own whims. Your path is your mate for life, and



when you are together you won't have to die alone.'

Rainer Maria Rilke

There is only one kind of Rilke, and that's a poet who was dressed as a girl until he was 5. (And that is greatness)

Post rock progression

A collective of lesser-known bands with big sounds.
I missed the crash of drums and twang of electric guitars.


Check tracks 1 and 2 to start with.

Electric Dreams

the breathing sound, incomplete sentences, dystopian future love-drama visuals, eerie tones, a fascinating late night voyage into involuntary solitude. Hey, you.

"There is only one kind of loneliness, and that is greatness"

Gui Boratto is one of several new fascinating finds. I forgot to keep searching for wizards like this.

The return to Trip-Hop



Makyo

The term makyo (魔境 makyō) means “ghost cave” or “devil’s cave.” It is employed in Zen as figurative reference to the kind of self-delusion that results from clinging to an experience and making a conceptual “nest” out of it for oneself.

This makes Elephant Happy!

Holy rollercoaster of doom.


Acting out will only dig you deeper.
There's worse deaths in life than dubstep.

Relax! NOW! :D

Heehee.. I was skeptical when I started listening to this album, and then something weird happened and it made my day sparkly bright happy. Giggles.


Such a pleasant state of being, to be a bongo drum.

Wtf this isn't Dubstep!

I did not come to this blog looking for some Hindu lullabies! Give me some fucking Womp!
Sure thing, socially-normative-conformity guy. Enjoy your dubstep.




I met this woman (Wah!) and she taught me yoga.

The problem with being a genius is that its Douchey

Debussy was a composer of music.

No one was ever sure whether the spites with which Debussy armed his volatile sensibilities were activated by a savage insensitivity, or by the holy egoism of genius.

A Very Long Time Ago....

...I used to have a pseudonormal taste in music.
But even that confused high-school kid on the verge of imagining some fuzzy inkling of love had some issues with regular lyrics.


This song brought to you by the silhouette of memory of a childhood infatuation.

I Miss Planet Earth

I miss the days when life used to be simple.


Eh, you can say that again every five minutes. In reference to every 5 minutes ago.

Ott new Album: Mir

Few artists have the absurd grasp over just the correct sonic strings to puppeteer one's mind into the phantasmic states of consciousness that Ott does.
I present to you Mir, Ott's most intensely complicated, almost disturbingly intricate collection of pseudo-melodies and aural adventures.
Make sure you get to track 3.


If high-level musicians were Asgardian deities, Ott would be Loki.

Mmm passionate apathy.

I've recently gotten into running low volume ambient rain sounds while playing music reflecting the mood of soft autumn/winter rain.
Have a sample:

Now this:

And close your eyes.
Or maybe do some gentle reading.

I think the video is mashed up advertisements from Canada or something like that.

Mos Dub is dub reggae music with mos def lyrics. This is an instrumental track....i.e no mos def.

Torley Part 2

Why is this guy so awesome?


Torley

I have been following all sorts of startups for a few months now. I went to one that seems to offer a service to create an 8-bit version of your avatar so you can be a cool kid (not sure though, as they are in closed beta) and one of Torley's songs was playing in the background.

ENJOY!

molto bene!

House is still alive

Remember the good old days when techno was the high end of music culture? No? Me neither.

That old school has been evolving, with smooth sweet progressions of luscious elusive celerity.
Someone, somewhere is on ecstasy.

THIS IS IT - WHAT!

Charity Album

There is a charity album out there... () and this song was on it. There are also a whole bunch of awesome glitch mob remixes on (so of course I bought it....it was like $10 for a ton of songs).

A fantastic music video that you may or may not have been exposed to:

So I just watched Black Swan last night. I think this double post is reflective of the neural scrambling I've gone through.
Then again, pretty much all of my posts are.

The Glitch Mob Is God

Sorry to keep posting so much glitch mob but they are my new favorites and this song is going to rock your socks off.

If you couldn't sleep after that last manic post, I apologize.
Let this video by BT show you that the machinery of the universe is still working harmoniously for the sake of us organics.

you oughta know das racist

Study shows love for music relates to brain chemical, not to My Chemical Romance




"It would make sense that people listen to music for the sheer pleasure of it, right? That's what we thought, but apparently there's a scientific reason for this. Scientists have discovered that when Earthlings listen to pleasurable music, one particular chemical is loosed in the gord. The study, conducted by Robert Zatorre and Valorie Salimpoor of McGill University in Montreal, concluded that when the participants tuned into instrumental pieces they were familiar with, their brains released dopamine into the striatum -- an area of the noggin linked with anticipation and predictions." more

Insanely Funky Song



Was sampled by the Beastie Boys for another sick song, Car Thief. (here it is)



Pretty sick, eh?

West vs East

I am from San Diego but went to school in Massachusetts. People always ask me which is better: The West (best) Coast, or the East (least) Coast?

Here is my answer:

Travelllling Music

I'm about to leave Pakistan. As homage to the land, here is a video of the national dance of the proud Pakistani people.


They're wearing British dresses because of the whole colonization thing, or something. But this is legit Pakistan. Really.

Funkadelic Mushroom

This is going to change some wiring in your brain.
Do this:
1-Reduce Volume on first song (Heavyweight) to 50%. Leave Funkadelic's Maggot Brain at 100%
2-Play Heavyweight, 1 second later play Maggot Brain. (Pre-buffer them both)
3-??????
4-PROFFFUFUUUUUUUFUUFUUUUUFFFUUUUU



I hope you're ready for this.

Bassnectar- Beyond the Womp

I hope you know a revolution is coming.
The dreadlocked prophet you call Bassnectar is just the first of the harbingers of a sonic paradigm shift.
If you ever see Bassnectar live, remember that the reason you can't describe the phenomenon is because your brain shut down during the experience to protect your sanity.

Good Night



This song is sick.

Destroyer - Chinatown

This is a pretty good lo-fi electric folk tune from an artist signed to Durham, NC based Merge Records.

youtube comment: "i like the original song but hearing it in a more tranced out kinda techno beat ups my like alot (sic) more..."



I like the Chromeo remix of VW's "The Kids Don't Stand a Chance" posted above. The chorus sounds a lot like this 80s hit:



Coincidence?

Download this song (the remix).
