I stormed the porch today with a favourite album in hand, Life's Rich Pageant. Now, I'd been fan of REM for years when this album came out, and I religiously nabbed it as I had the others. This one, at least for me, was a clear turning point in the career of the band, as they took a much more alternative approach to this album, joining the ranks of other bands such as Joy Division, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, and many others. The first track, "Begin the Begin", is one of the most poignant protest songs ever written. Honestly, it's not so much a protest anthem as a call to arms for people to THINK. I even forgive them for name-dropping two rather well known Protestant's in the lyrics! -p.

Thirty-five years later, and it's still a masterpiece. Full frigging stop.

Time to change things up a tad, today I dug out the first four albums from the Violent Femmes, and grooved till I was most satisfied!

This time during lunch I soaked up the sounds of Alice Cooper, specifically the albums From the Inside and Flush the Fashion, the latter being a particular favourite of mine for over twenty years, now. This guy re-invented himself so often that, like Bowie, I'm sure he often lost track of himself!

This morning before heading over to mum's for Thanksgiving glory, I was checking out two albums from Halestorm. My brother just shook his head when he picked me up and I'm pretty certain the neighbors were glad to see me head out! =p

This is one of the tracks I usually play on an endless loop while working. It's the sort of music I don't need to listen to actively, but still gives a certain beat and rhythm to the work. It's so catchy.

This afternoon, since things warmed up a bit, I took some Henley out to the porch. End of the Innocence is such a great album, then and now.

Oh good gravy, the warm weather is back for us and I stormed the porch early this morning with some Rolling Stones, just to set the mood right! Take your pick of any albums up to Tattoo You, they're all awesome!!~

I've always got chills by the end of this track, ever since 1984! One of my fave tv themes ever.

Great music for a fine show! Even now Miss Marple is well worth viewing.

Miss Marple theme reminds me of the Black Adder theme.

This morning I enjoyed the early morning sunrise with the dulcet tones of Placebo. They've an excellent singer, only surpassed by how well the band plays together.

Besides, if you want to see Genesis in the U.S. for very likely the very last time - you should then get tickets now.

Vera Lynn is incredible, I've been listening to her stuff since the seventies. Her timing and voice are simply exquisite!

Today, being the sabbath, I took to the porch with some…..Black Sabbath!! Heaven and Hell, followed by Dehumanizer, two excellent albums sure to make the spirit of Dio course through your veins!

Today has been so nice, sunny and vibrant that I took to the porch with the ever amazing Iggy Pop! I quite enjoy his first two albums, Idiot and Lust for Life. Excellent tunes to enjoy while reading as well.

For me, that's the end of Dr. Strangelove.
