Brutally cold the past week or so. Saturday it was a record -22F... without the wind chill factored in! Eek

It's supposed to get a bit better temperature-wise, which will be more than welcome. I love the snow and don't mind it being cold; however, I could definitely do without the ridiculous, multiple day sub-zero cold temps, that's for sure.

Yeah, the whole notion of "Winter Wonderland" takes on a whole new meaning when it's that cold outside (as in, "I wonder what the hell made me move here!) Wink

Though it was awhile ago, I still remember when I lived in Southern California and "the dead of winter" meant, "Hmmmm... I might need to put on a windbreaker today. Maybe." Big Grin
Nirvana

Next door neighbor was listening to them and I could hear it through the wall and I hadn't really listened since I was about 14 so I put some on, myself. Honestly, they weren't bad.

Ditto that. The Piano Concertos from Elvira Madigan is probably one of my 5, or at least 10, most listened to CDs of orchestral music.

Fade to Black, Metallica.

I have NO idea why. I just got the sudden urge to listen to a sing I haven't listened to since I was 13. Weird.
No Auld Lang Syne for anyone last night? Our party sang it three times: Eastern, Central, and Mountain time zones.

Ok. But you'll admit that is a major 'up'! Big Grin

Actually, as a cohesive pop/rock/folk/whatever album, I think this is easily in my top 10 of all time.
Speaking of Metallica, my ipod just skipped to For Whom the Bell Tolls. Older Metallica still does it for me, can’t get into their new stuff.

A fairly diverse rotation tonight...

Tim Weisberg - Tip of the Weisberg
Camel - Pressure Points ---> Andrew Latimer, one of the most amazingly gifted guitarists ever.
Pat Metheny Group - As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes are in heavy rotation for me right now. What a great album. One of the better releases from 2008.

I heard that Robert Plant said, in an acceptance speech, "we used to say this was selling out, but I think it's a good way to spend a Sunday".

Well Robert, you sold out. I hope she was good.

This , of course, stinks for John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page. And everyone who would like to see Led Zeppelin tour again. It's hard to be ticked at Plant because he's got a lot going on already.

I'm sure all three have all the money they need, but think of all those dollars they could make with a tour. Eek

I watched it and heard his comment.
I thought he was segwaying into his list of 'Thank you's' that followed (Producers, etc).

Funny to see the comparison between Sir Paul and Plant. One has aged gracefully and the other has clearly partied hard. Smile

Great recording! His take on the Pathetique is phenomenal as well.

For me, Beirut. Just got into him / this band. The verdict isn't in yet, but I think I like him / them. It will deffinitely take a little more listening to be sure. Seems like just a bunch of people... maybe Grad students at NYU?... hanging out in the Village making music.

On Letterman last week -- I'd heard of them before but this was the frst time I listened to a complete song of theirs.

This is truely one of the greatest songs performed by one of the greatest tenors of our time! I've heard many sing this, just not as well as Luciano.

Listened to more Bocelli-Incanto this morning on the way to work. I love some of these festive classics (Santa Lucia, Funiculi Funicula).

I did remember to DVR "Eastbound and Down" though....
