Been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been on Spring Break, although I haven’t gone anywhere. Rather, I have been catching up on some much-needed rest. By the week before break, I was pretty constantly fatigued. I’m feeling a bit better, and am ready to finish up the semester.

Let’s see, new CDs… oh yes:

The Who - Who’s Next
David Tohir and his Backbone - Angels Dancing in Virga
Deus Ex Machina - Equilibrismo da Insofferenza
Charles Mingus - Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus Mingus
Chick Corea and Return to Forever - Light as a Feather
Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come

I have barely listened to these. You see, for the next week or so, I am instating a policy of only listening to MP3s when at home. I download so much, but a lot of it just sits there. So, for the time being, I am going to listen to MP3s when at home, and CDs when in the car and on foot.

Today, when sitting outside at a shopping center, I was drinking a Coke and listening to the radio that was being played for the seating area. The music mix was interesting. There was some pop, naturally, but then a Steely Dan tune played, and I didn’t recognize which one. Furthermore, after that song, a Pink Floyd song played. That in itself was pretty interesting, but what caught my attention was the particular song. It wasn’t one of the hits from Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Wish You Were Here, or even A Momentary Lapse of Reason or The Division Bell. I was able to identify the song as being something on Meddle, of all albums. I couldn’t figure out which one (until I got home, and found out that it was “San Tropaz”). Very interesting choice.
