Here’s a quote to live by, for all useless souls wondering what to do and when to do it etc…
If you don’t have [place a suitable word here], then don’t think about it, that way you’ll save pointless dreaming.
That probably doesn’t make any sense, so that’s too bad. It does sound similar to Bill Bailey’s quote:-
The day after tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life, then you’ll always have a few days in hand.
Now that’s probably better and it makes more sense…
Enough of this thinking business, one needs to have fun in life. It’s short enough as it is, so why wait for things to come to you, go out and buy some good music before no more appears.
My recommendations for today include-
- Radiohead (any of their albums, as they are all so damn good. Although for the casual listener you may prefer Pablo Honey (just a solid Rock album, but immense for a debut), The Bends (a beautifully crafted piece of work that just doesn’t get boring) or OK Computer (without a doubt, one of the best albums of the 20th century). Listening to these will stand you in good stead for approaching the other albums, as they get progressively stranger as you go along.
- Tommy, by the Who. The immense rock album come rock opera, come film. Good tunes, easy to like and sound better the more you hear them.
That’s some of the stuff I’ve really been into recently, there’s loads more, but do I really have time for all of this…
Those thoughts of mine on Macworld will be coming soon, just you wait.
