    Discuss the Musics Thread

    Apparently Bob Dylan had intercourse with, and simultaneously is, KF's wife.

    Discuss.

    I am skeptical until there is visual, audio, and preferrably smellable proof.

    People are constantly saying that cinema is dead, the short story is dead, the novel is dead, the comic strip is dead, the sitcom is dead, blah blah fucking blah.

    Does anyone ever bother to say music is dead?

    I think I've said that before, but it was a phase, I think. The White Stripes convinced me that music was still good.

    Oh, yeah. I remember that phase.

    I can't say I care much about music these days, but I recognize that's really just a phase.

    In my grad school teaching of writing class, I had to teach a minilesson on a subject of my own choice. I chose the subject of literary tone. To illustrate it, I brought in copies of the lyrics to the Kinks' Waterloo Sunset, Do You Remember Walter? and David Watts.

    It was fun.

    Awesome! Believe it or not, my initial first post for this thread was going to be something along the lines of:

    "The Kinks rock.

    Discuss."

    You... are awesome.

    I have, I think, almost half of their albums, and certainly of the ones I have I think I've got the critical ones. I think I'm going to listen to This Time Tomorrow now.

    I gave Carl Orff's Carmina Burana a whirl today after some time away. It's still wondrous.

    Otherwise it's been Coaltar of the Deepers and Boris pretty much consistently.

    I'm pretty sure I have all but maybe one or two, if any missing at all. This Time Tomorrow is from Lola v. Powerman, etc, one of their best, in my books, and that song is one I'd rank among their best.

    I need to get up off my lazy ass and find time to drive out to Best Buy or Target and buy some new CDs. I haven't listened to anything new in quite a while.

    Lola/Powerman is not only The Kinks best album, but one of the best albums in rock history. It's genius.

    Wow, really nice seeing The Avett Brothers on that list, that was another album I left off of my short list.

    Patrick Wolf and Arcade Fire are solid choices. I've got no complaints with #1.

    Muswell Hillbillies is my favorite Kinks album. I dig its analog sound; I love the stories that it tells.

    I'm currently in the midst of acquiring the Clemencic Consort's recording of the original Carmina Burana texts on which Orff based his work. It should be great.

    This. Is. Awesome.

    Robert Fripp to music industry, "suck it!"

    http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquir...c-industry-rip

    Where is the RIAA when one of their own breaks copyright law? Oh that's right, rules are for us, not them, silly me!

    And speaking of Fripp and King Crimson, I had no idea you could order all kinds of live performances straight from them!

    Haven't gotten to listen to too much outside of the more mainstream stuff from this year as of yet. But right now, my favourite albums from the year are probably:

    1. Kanye West - Graduation
    2. Radiohead - In Rainbows
    3. Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
    4. Arctic Monkeys - Favourite Worst Nightmare
    5. Rufus Wainwright - Release The Stars

    Reading this thread has reminded of a lot of stuff I still need to check out. Except for M.I.A., because there is nothing in any of her music I have found to be anything other than nauseating.
    BlacKkKlansman (Lee, 2018) – **** / 9.1
    Murder On The Orient Express (Branagh, 2017) – ***½ / 8.3
    Mission: Impossible – Fallout (McQuarrie, 2018) – ***½ / 8.8
    Blindspotting (Estrada, 2018) – ***½ / 8.4
    Leave No Trace (Granik, 2018) – ***½ / 8.6
    Eighth Grade (Burnham, 2018) – ***½ / 8.5
    Sorry To Bother You (Riley, 2018) – **** / 9.2
    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Bayona, 2018) – **½ / 5.9
    2001: A Space Odyssey [in 70mm] (Kubrick, 1968) – **** / 10

    I wasn't aware that Rufus had a new album out. How does it compare with his previous efforts? I was somewhat underwhelmed by Want Two.
