22 April '98 - So, I'm sitting here, talking old music and listening to "How Soon Is Now?" by The Smiths. That song was one of the defining songs of my teenage years...it was like nothing I had ever heard before. I remember just being so blown away by it. Other songs that were definitive for me from that era (this is a top 10 of sorts, I guess). No particular order.
"Age of Consent" - New Order
"Love Will Tear Us Apart" - Joy Division
"Tainted Love" - Soft Cell
"Somebody" - Depeche Mode
"Joan of Arc" - OMD
"Lindy's Party" - The Bolshoi
"It's No Reason" - The Church
"The Seventh Stranger" - Duran Duran
"Love is (what I say)" - INXS
"La Ment" - The Cure
...I could just keep going, but that's enough for now. Part 2 - the college years forthcoming.

27 Feb '98 - Well, it's fixed. About time. Almost didn't make my monthly goal. For those of you who follow my mental babbling, if you got that Jeff Buckley CD, be of good cheer. Sketches (for my Sweetheart the Drunk), Jeff Buckley's posthumous release should be in the stores in May. Also, Mystery Machine just released a new album this past Tuesday. They are a really great Nettwerk band. Sadly under-rated. I saw they are playing in Cleveland on Sunday night. S, if you go, I'm right beside you in spirit, as always. You Ohio people, get off your duffs and support them. Figures I move out to California and all this cool stuff happens in Ohio. Pathetic. More music tips: Critters Buggin' - some tripped out band out of Seattle. They are cool, though. And I just got Chris Stills' album. I've not listened to it yet. As you can see, I've got a lot to say, but that's enough for tonight. More this weekend!

Lilac Wine

10January 98 - Ok, I don't know if this year is starting out on a morbid note or what, but I've been listening to this one CD over and over within the past month, and decided it was high time to sing the artist's praises. Only problem is, he died last year. And now that I've had a chance to hear his music do I begin to comprehend the depth of the loss to musicdom. It is so rare to find a musician who can speak directly to your very soul. Then, to find them too late, how sad is that? Anyway, the more I listen to it, the more I realize how much we have lost. So, turn off your computer right now (or go to your favorite online store) and get "Grace" by Jeff Buckley. Play it 3 times in a row. Then be sad for all the music and lyrics never made.
