  • Released 40 years ago yesterday, the one record that marks the shift in my musical tastes from very mainstream and predictable, to what they would become. My sophomore year of college, this totally changed everything. King Crimson's Disicipline.

    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        • Specifically, it was this appearance on ABC's answer to SNL called Fridays, which of course, aired on Fridays, that did it. A bit lame, as a show, but it was my introduction to Michael Richards. And they had great musical guests. The Clash, The Jam, Talking Heads, Pretenders, Tom Petty, just a few that I manage to remember.

          Don't know what i did that night, but I'm sure I was at least somewhat drunk, but for some reason, caught this show on TV. Back in those days, not everyone had a tv in their room, let alone on their phone, hell, this was pre-cellphone. So I had to wander downstairs to the basement of my cinderblock dorm to the TV room, a little cinderblock cell that could probably barely hold 10 people.

          And had my little mind blown. Adrian Belew is hysterical. And a helluva guitar player. And Fripp even smiled. A weird, creepy smile, but a smile, nonetheless.

          • Listened to Jagged Little Pill this morning.

            As a teenager, I didn't understand that album. As a 40 year old adult, I completely get it now.

            • And Slap, I listened to Feel Good Ghosts by Cloud Cult. Hadn't listened in so long, but a good majority of the songs were something I needed to hear this morning.

                    I’m not sure how Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton end up on a one hit wonder list.

                      Single songs by band for people who only listen to music which becomes car commercials.

                      • I listened to Back and Forth by Aaliyah last night. An underrated party jam from the 90s.

                        And I noticed R Kelly was executive producer on that entire album, which might explain tracks like "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number."

                          • I found "Ohio" by Over The Rhine at a used music store a few days ago. I've listened to it before, but today, the themes of loss, pain, regret, and wanting to go home again hit hard.

                            • Was recently thinking about how much the Blind Melon song "No Rain" perfectly aligns with my grandfather's current life. With my grandmother committed to memory care for the last couple of years, and most of their friends now dead or having fallen out of contact, he has basically no one left, very little common interests with the rest of the family, and the resulting depression and struggle to cope with the reality of living his last years alone is very easy to see.
