On a Music Rampage.

I've just been on an unstoppable rampage lately. I think in the past two weeks I've bought something like two hundred dollars worth of music, and borrowed tons of Cds from the boyfriend.

One of my favorite finds so far is Porcupine Tree. They're a progressive rock band, and I have to say every song that I've listened to so far, I have greatly enjoyed. I just bought two albums by them about fiffteen minutes ago (Thank goodness Itunes exists, my life would be so dull and drab.).  Some of my favorite songs would be 'Occam's Razor', 'Time Flies', and 'Bonnie the Cat'.

I've also found some more jazzy stuff that I really like, namely Emilie-Claire Barlow and Holly Cole. For some reason the remind me of the movie Roger the Rabbit. Weird.

A progressive metal band that I've been enjoying lately is Intronaut. I also purchased their most recent album  ('Valley of Smoke') and have been slowing working my way through it. They're definately one of those bands that you have to listen to several times to fully appreciate, because there really is just so much depth there.

Anyways, hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things after the Christmas season. Poems have been few and far between. Don't even get me started on prose.

This whole month has been a lull, but I see some bright gleams of light with the coming new year.


  1. Looking forward to a new year of fresh poems, prose, ramblings, chicken scratches, etc. Gonna check out some of the bands you listed here. Check out these: Rock: Helmet; Jazz: Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Dave Holland; Alt: Godspeed You Black Emperor, Sigur Ros, Do Make Say Think.

  2. Thanks for sharing your new musical forays - I'll definitely check some out. I tend toward local (New Orleans) musicians and old school funk/blues/soul but I like all kinds.

    Happy, happy New Year to you, Juice. Keep that beautiful authentic voice shouting in the new year. :)

  3. you write well.
    stay comfortable with your own life.
    happy 2011.
