listening to joni: #12: dog eat dog

Dog Eat Dog, 1985 Front Cover We've reached a milestone: a Joni Mitchell album I don't like.No, that's a cop out. It's not merely that I don't like Dog Eat Dog. It's that Dog Eat Dog is not good. It's a really bad album.All musicians, all artists, create clunkers sometimes -- especially if they're experimenting and expanding. Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Van Morrison, David Byrne -- musical giants all, and all have released albums that aren't very good.And although it ...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Is Suhr moving away from roasted necks?

Author: ATLMikeyD Posted: Fri Feb 21, 2020 8:35 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 2 I thought that roasted necks were superior due to having very little moisture and less tendency to react to atmospheric changes compared to non-roasted wood. I've not heard anyone complain about them or rumors of discontinuation from any manufacturer. I imagine that the wood is roasted before receipt at a manufacturer, then cut to spec. Perhaps the demand, demonstrated market behavior due to cost impact to custo...

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: Trans colors on roasted swamp ash

Author: Drew7 Posted: Fri Feb 21, 2020 11:13 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 1 I suspect so - if you want the trans finish done front and back, that's a custom option and if it was an upcharge on my last modern, I don't recall because it was modest or nonexistent. You can definitely ask, though, either direct or through a dealer. _________________"They can kill you, but the legalities of eating you are a little dicier." - David Foster Wallace

Why Florida’s New Parental Consent Law For Abortion Is Problematic

How Nina Simone Became Hip Hop’s “Secret Weapon”: From Lauryn Hill to Jay Z and Kanye West

In 1996, the Fugees burst on the scene with “Ready or Not,” and most listeners were not ready: for the ominous, eclectic, Caribbean-inflected production, the smooth, sexy menace of Lauryn Hill’s hook (“you can’t hide / Gonna find you and take it slowly”), or the interplay of references in the breakout star’s rhymes. “Rap orgies with Porgy and Bess / Capture your bounty like Eliot Ness,” Hill raps, and then a few lines later, “So while you’re imitating Al Capone, I’ll be Nina Simone / And...

How Pianist Igor Levit Hacked The Attention Economy And Made Himself Into A ‘Thought Leader’

“Levit’s career is a stark demonstration of the dissolving boundaries between art and commerce, journalism and public relations, particularly in Germany. … He is a friend to media personalities and politicians. Journalists ask his opinion on climate change, the rise of the far right, books, the ideal body weight. He works with artists and comedians, performs at the Bundestag in Berlin and for the Greens. In England, he’s enraged Brexiteers; in the U.S., he’s ‘The Pianist of the Resistance.'” Hi...
