    Tis true. I could go through the differences of a musical, opera, or a musical opera if you want. It might take awhile though...

    Saw a production of it. I treated a friend to dinner and a musical for her birthday and it was wonderful. I have a shirt that says "It Sucks To Be Me" and when I was in school I'd wear it to exams.


    I've been on a major Rome trip, specifically the album Nos Chants Perdus, and to a lesser extent Flowers From Exile. The latter is about Spanish Anarchists exiled from Spain to France after the Franco's Nationalists defeated the Anarchist in the Spanish Civil War, and the former is about their experience in France. I really love how melancholy, personal and world weary Nos Chants Perdus is. In songs like "L'Assassin", "La Commune", "Sous la Dague" and "Les Iles Noire", it really seems to capture the passion and dedication of those figures and the accompanying sense of melancholy and loss that came with their defeat and exile. It really comes out in the composition, Jerome's singing and the lyrics. Like jeez. Lyrical examples:

    L'Assassin

    All banks and tanks have lost their charm
    No one grieves the thieves
    No one hails the dawn
    But when the sun comes back
    We will all be gone
    A-shoveling, a-scheming
    To help rebuild their walls
    To make this world seem wrinkled and tired
    No round fired, no assassins hired
    All will salute this transformation
    That will throw us back
    Into a jungle of nations
    All will salute the enormous bluff
    That never made you blush
    That never made you... Hush!


    Sous la Dague
    Spoiler
    Show
    But I donít care for your milk and honey
    Nor do I wish to be wrapped up
    In the silence of money
    Me who cared for flour and oil
    Who cared for blood-drenched soil
    And slept the sleep of apples and gold
    As in the stories of old
    And I donít care for your grass-given grief
    For your painís left me locked in disbelief
    Among the towers, among the flowers
    On angerís white throne


    Seriously I love that album so much. @_@

    Sleigh Bells is REALLY LOUD live. I've been rocking out to them since their album dropped. The next one they are going to avoid brickwalling because they decided their music was too abrasive when compared to other songs on a playlist.

    The drummer of a big local indie band here in Boise (Finn Riggins) is putting together a festival here this spring. Why? and of Montreal are coming in addition to many of my friends local bands. Now that a kid I used to play street music with is playing sold out shows in NYC and opening for Death Cab a lot of local Boise bands seem to be blowing up.

    Probably not, seems right up most of the playground's collective alley.

    I tried listening to them/him?... and tried to be as openminded as I usually am when I approach new bands.

    Yeah, Trevor is a cool guy. He wrote the album in his bedroom. He would usually play live with a friend, but I'm not sure if he's still doing that now. It's actually pretty amazing just how fast he's taken off. Boise is a really exciting place for music right now. TEENS has gotten some national attention, my dorm roommate is in talks with Capitol Records right now, and my best friends band (FINALLY) recording their first album this month after two and a half years.

    Wow, this is my first post since September, 2009. It's good to be back.

    I am a huge EDM fan, especially trance and progressive house. I have to say, if you ever get a chance to see Above & Beyond live, they put on one of the best shows out there. My mind was mo'friggin blown last Saturday, honestly one of the best nights I've had ever!

    Welp, because my theatre teacher is too much of an ******* to ask if we could go first in the theatre competition, y'know, within 2 months of us asking her to do so, all the Dropkick Murphy's tickets have sold out. Sad.

    Similar thing happened for me with Godspeed You! Black Emperor tickets.

    On April 20th, which is clearly the best possible day to see Godspeed.

    Luckily, mah broz came through for me and looks like I'll be able to go.

    April 20th is the first day of GitP meetup in Toronto. It's also the day of my school semi-formal.

    I AM going to go buy Sleigh Bells tickets today.

    Guys, I think I'm on to something. 70s African psych-funk only available on vinyl import compilations from small British labels.

    Seriously though, this stuff's great.

    I'd even dare to say, this stuff is seriously great.
    I'm not clear of the origins, but Supermax might be worth checking.
    For more traditional funk, there's Edwin Starr, Temptations (if I ever had to choose a favorite band, it would be them - if only because of this).
