    Fist bump, but a gentle one - are you feeling any better? I saw your message on your profile about the incipient migraine. Ugh.

    How funny is this? I had no idea either! And super compatibility - we're off the charts. :)

    Well, it took me some time to warm up to his first album too.

    Wow, Pitchfork deigned to cover some female artists for a change? Colour me amazed. Yeah: Dee Dee's voice is fantastic. I've been hooked ever since I heard Jail La La on one of my last.fm stations.

    Thanks so much! It was a ridiculous undertaking, but it was a lot of fun...even if it took us about 2 years!

    Hi, pleased to be friends. I'm just enjoying lastfm://user/the_red_shoes/personal/tag/folk. I'm TRYING to be strong willed and not put too many new tracks into my library because there are already lots I've not heard enough of. But I'm NOT very strong willed. I'd be interested to hear what you might pick up from my library.

    I feel a bit presumptuous accepting the compliment, given the last couple of posts made, but thank you.

À propos de moi

Overall:



Past year:



Past week:






Boris Lermontov: "The Ballet of The Red Shoes" is from a fairy tale by Hans Andersen. It is the story of a young girl who is devoured with an ambition to attend a dance in a pair of red shoes. She gets the shoes and goes to the dance. For a time, all goes well and she is very happy. At the end of the evening she is tired and wants to go home, but the red shoes are not tired. In fact, the red shoes are never tired. They dance her out into the street, they dance her over the mountains and valleys, through fields and forests, through night and day. Time rushes by, love rushes by, life rushes by, but the red shoes go on.

Julian Craster: What happens in the end?

Boris Lermontov: Oh, in the end, she dies.

***

Extraordinary how potent cheap music is.

***

It was true that Odette played vilely, but often the most memorable impression of a piece of music is one that has arisen out of a jumble of wrong notes struck by unskilled fingers upon a tuneless piano.

***

Jenny said, when she was just about five years old
'Hey, you know, there's nothin' happening at all, not at all
Every time I put on the radio
You know, there's nothin' goin' down at all, not at all'
But, one fine morning, she hears a New York station
She couldn't believe what she heard at all, hey, not at all
She started dancing to that fine, fine music
You know, her life was saved by rock'n'roll

***

Orpheus with his Lute made Trees,
And the Mountaine tops that freeze,
Bow themselues when he did sing.
To his Musicke, Plants and Flowers
Euer sprung; as Sunne and Showers,
There had made a lasting Spring.
Euery thing that heard him play,
Euen the Billowes of the Sea,
Hung their heads, & then lay by.
In sweet Musicke is such Art,
Killing care, & griefe of heart,
Fall asleepe, or hearing dye.

***

"Oh, we got both kinds of music. Country and western."
