    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.
    I haven't heard Poses or the Wants in their entirety in a while, but listening to Release The Stars (especially the first time) I can't help but feel that it may be his best work to date.

    I know it's sad. I really enjoyed their film reviews as well. Speaking of, they have their best films of the year (so far, obviously) up there too, so at least they left us with some good stuff to chew on.

    Stylus will be missed, but that's a decent list to leave with.

    Good to see The Besnard Lakes getting a little love. I'm fine with their #1 choice.

    There is a new Twin Peaks soundtrack out. It's music from the second season and more. It is very good.

    This should be fun.

    Tickets to Puffy AmiYumi this Sunday...won through Vancouver's multicultural channel!

    At least the fact that it's at a bar should cut down on the amount of 12 yr old Teen Titans fans in attendance.

    I recently got my tix to Built to Spill, The Black Lips, SY playing Daydream Nation and Low playing Things We Lost in the Fire.

    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?
    Music genres are dead but music will never be dead. For instance Jazz is dead. There's no way to be inventive in Jazz anymore.

    As for top albums of the year, though I haven't yet gone through the lists yet to make my own, currently my favorite album of the year is

    Nine Inch Nails -- Year Zero

    another which will easily be in my top five will be

    Galactic -- From The Corner to the Block

    If any of you want to listen to Hip Hop artists with a new orleans style band behind them, that cd is for you.

    I'll consider it. I'm sure someone else will, or it'll get youtubed.

    The other day I attended a Damon and Naomi show. Something I was meaning to do for a long time, since I'm a mangorrinic Galaxie500 fan and had never seen any of its members live. They played in a quiet, intimate theater, which fit perfectly their brutally fragile and kinda cathartic music, and afterwards I got to talk to them (and also Michio Kurihara, whose coolness I shall not remind you of) and they gave me a setlist... yay.

    That was great. But even better was experimenting Ornette Coleman and his excellent band play one hour and a half of fresh, mindblowing jazz (which is far off from being dead). Beautiful is the word. How can this man give off these blasts of youth and innovation, these days, it's just so wonderful. Before leaving, he thanked us all for being there, and commented on how he hoped eternity would become "human", forever. I'll never forget that. That night.

    Events coming up: Julie Doiron, High on Fire (+ Pelican), Library Tapes, Explosions in the Sky.

    By the by, Polvo will be playing at ATP next year. Drooling, I am.

    As much as I love G500, I could never get into Damon & Naomi. I guess they're so somber and slow that they pretty much put me to sleep.

    I think they have many wonderful compositions, but you need to really be in the mood in order to get inside their world. That said, their albums post-Ghost collaboration (that one included) are most consistent, and achieve moments of pure beauty - specially with Kurihara on guitar duties, I'm sometimes reminded of a darker, more visceral, drumless G500. Their last record, Within these Walls, is rather wonderful.

    Too bad you never got to see Luna live. They are/were an incredible live act. I also enjoy Damon and Naomi, but not nearly as much as Dean's stuff. The man is a master wordsmith.

    Have fun at the show!

    There are millions of ways to be inventive in any genre of music, so long as the audience doesn't compartmentalize genre into strictly defined genreboxes (thus becoming afraid to experience new things), and so long as the artist doesn't adhere to the "definitions" of genre. Just recently I was turned on to a compilation of new jazz artists called, Money Will Ruin Everything, and trust me, there is plenty of room to innovate within the "jazz" genre.

    Aye. "Sad Eyes" and "I Saw the Light" are absolutely incredible. I find their slow songs work for me better than the midpaced tracks...
