Part of a playlist that is getting me through a particularly difficult day of working out OT feature code and other issues.

I'm loving the new Grizzly Bear songs.
AC/DC Live at River Plate
I am listening to Clint Eastwood, and loving it.
Over the hill? The guy is a gifted jazz pianist, who made a living playing tough guys (Richard Burton once described his acting style as "dynamic lethargy'), but who is still—like many of his true ilk—sharp as a tack. The Republicans got bamboozled into giving him center stage, and are only now realizing—although only tacitly—that Eastwood made fools of the entire GOP and its Toontown ticket.
A definite ROFLMAO moment for me; in fact, it made my day, punk…
oldnick, you made my day!
Clint Eastwood, said "It's time for Obama to go".
Thanks steppin' up oldnick, I guess the Dems typical misrepresentation of even the simplest of matters is the most powerful hand in the world ... LOL ...sigh.
Or is it???
? Or: cool. BTW, I love your profile: you fill in the blanks beautifully.
Better watch out: some folks here might think that you are as loop as me…
I'm expecting Morgan Freeman to do similar gig at the Dem's convention.
You are absolutely correct; however, I think that the Dems are going to be a little wary about offering anyone an opportunity to present an unscripted "endorsement"—although not because they are any smarter than the Republicans. It's more of a "once burned, twice shy" kinda thing. The Oreo at the top of the ticket is a Chicago politician, after all…
*edited to remove gratuitous, age-related insult*
Nick, I object to your use of the term "Oreo." Is there something intrinsically white about what Barack Obama has achieved?
You can -and should- call anything what you truly believe that thing to be. The problems start when people (like... politicians) try to manipulate others by misrepresenting what they actually believe. The problems start when we believe democracy can lead to honest leaders.
By his own admission, Obama could have "passed" for white or black—except he really couldn't. He is a true African-American, but not a garden-variety, descendant-of-slaves person of color. Frankly, I bought his message of hope and change when he first started peddling it in 2004, but have since come to realize that he's just another crooked politician who used race to "redeem" the white man from his guilt.
So, sorry: Oreo holds. IMHO…
The "Major-General's Song" from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance", for the first time ever. Of course, that means I had no blimmin idea that Tom Lehrer's "The Elements" stemmed from this.
Bob Dylan ...all.
Beethoven's Ninth by Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic in 1962-63. They were playing for their freedom, they were playing for everyone's freedom. If you need to buy all the Beethoven symphonies like I did, I cannot recommend a better reading. The Ninth is beyond words.
Paul, how does one identify the '62-63 recordings? The first result in iTunes is another recording of the Ninth in the '80s by the same conductor/orchestra.
Abigail Washburn. A woman with a banjo who sometimes sings in Mandarin. What's not to like?
The Uyghur jam session rocks.
marcox - here they are on Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Beethoven-9-Symphonies-Gundula-Janowitz/dp/B000001...
I had the set you are talking about and gave them away - this earlier set is the Berlin Philharmonic playing like Gods and Karajan Zeus-like.
I am listening to the drier spinning some items with metal buttons.
Like a flat, tuneless gamalong symphony that's going to last another 20 minutes. Give or take.
It's well known (perhaps not so much these days) that when socks exit our world via the dryer vent, some socks enter into a kind of 'holding station' (sort of like a border crossing detainment room) depending on what acoustical properties they carry with them.
It seems to me that a tuneless gamalong symphony would be of great benefit.
Currently I'm listening to Moby...

While the word 'gamalong' sounds like 'gamelan', isn't the former just another word for arcade cacophony?
In the Kingdom of the Blind the One-Eyed are Kings by Dead Can Dance
What did you think of the new Fugazi album? I say don't fix what ain't broken.
them's fightin' words! fugazi's new (year-old by now) album is arguably their best. deep, beautiful, aggressive, raw, organic, etc. or did you mean you liked it?

Home-rendered MIDI version of Pachelbel's Ciacona in d minor played on a virtual pipe organ.
The crickets out my open back door.
Gamalan it is. I spelled it incorrectly
http://Cargo-Frakt with Apparat Organ Quartet.
http://Myndbandið with Sonus Futurae. It's about the video tape revolution.
Huh? Not gamelan? But that's just the most common English transliteration, and so other spellings may be acceptable (like Gayageum or Kayagum, depending on whether you use the new or old transliteration of Korean).
Ah - gamalan is how it's spelled in Bahasa Jawa.
I'm currently listening to Konntinent - New Neo Tokyo_From the Beach, odaiba Bay. Check it out on Spotify
The new Grizzly Bear and Two Door Cinema Club albums, for different moods.
Sky playing "Toccata". Definitely Bach on modern instruments.
Sweets Edison, Remastered
Vivaldi's ... The Four Seasons.
Bachianas brasilieras by Villa-Lobos, a 1950s recording.
Conducted by the composer, sung by Victoria de los Ángeles.
The piece where she hums to a pizzicato accompaniment of eight celli—nº 5— is especially nice.
Of course I was inﬂuenced to buy it by the cover, with awesome photo of dude at work with massive cigar, and typography in tightly ﬁtted Peignot capitals.
This is what I listen to when I don't want to be distracted by the lyrics:

Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water.
My parents gave this LP when I was just a kidlin' ... they also smuggled me into a Stones concert but that's another story for another time...
Simon & Garfunkel - The Boxerhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzUEL7vw60U
In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminder of every glove that laid him down or cut him
'Til he cried out in his anger and his shame
I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains
Yes, he still remains ...
Sam Lee's delightfully strange interpretations of traditional Romany and English ballads. Then I discovered the even stranger videos.
