A “Top 100 Songs” meme has been going around, this one on FaceBook. I find it very difficult to choose favorites from music that I enjoy from so many different genres and artists. I made up this list of one hundred tracks based on what I happen to have available for play on my computer …

Not Perfect

Welcome to my new blog/web site/whatever. This is my corner of the web where I hope to share all sorts of things. My interests are varied. You will probably find a little bit of everything here, eventually. It isn’t quite finished, yet. The basic structure is here, but it still needs to be fleshed out. …

How About Some Interesting Music: Die Antwoord

I’ve been under the weather recently, which has left me tired and unmotivated. There are several things that I want to write posts about, but the text isn’t quite ‘flowing’ yet. I’ll get to those posts soon though. In the meantime, I’ll provide another musical interlude. I’ve never been terribly fond of music which is …

Maynard James Keenan has explained that this song is about his mother, Judith Marie Keenan, who was restricted to a wheelchair for the rest of her life after suffering a stroke. I appreciate the sentiments expressed in the lyrics. I can only hope that as time goes by, more Christians will examine some of the …

“I love the country but I can’t stand the scene.”

I’m often reminded of how varied people’s exposure to music can be. Twenty years is an eternity in the music industry. Those same years make a gap in musical generations that most people don’t bother to cross. I don’t follow what I refer to as ‘pop culture”, so I don’t really know who most of …

Happy Crimbo! Life in a Northern Town

Yes, Crimbo is nearly at an end, though the spirit of the day should remain with us at all times. Respect for our fellow humans [Remember: People deserve some amount of respect as a human being; ideas (like religion) do not deserve my respect.], treating others as you would be treated, and generally not being …

Nordman: I Lågornas Sken (In the Light of the Flames)

Anyone who decided to examine the music I listen to on a regular basis would probably be mystified as to what kind of music I prefer. During the day while I drive, I usually listen to classical music from the local public radio station, WILL FM. My MP3 player is as likely to have an …

Don’t Give Up

Once in a while, it’s good to listen to this song. The lyrics are printed below. I’ve always enjoyed Peter Gabriel’s work, from his years with Genesis to his more contemporary music.

What did they say? Mondegreen and Soramimi

This morning I mentioned to someone that I thought we had a communication “breakdown”. We have conflicting ideas about the meanings of a few things. This brought to mind something much more innocuous than the discussion I was having. Misheard Lyrics I’m pretty sure that we can all remember song lyrics that we originally thought …

For Several Reasons: Jonathan Edwards – Nova Scotia

When I was growing up in the mid 1970s, I listened to a lot of music. A great deal of that music either belonged to, or used to belong to, my older brothers. As their musical tastes were rather diverse, so were my own. Jonathan Edwards is one of the artists who sticks in my …
