listening to amarok today and "i've been down hearted baby ..." floated past... ah, b.b. king. i love the blues as much for the musical moments as for the lyrical deliveries.
"i've been down hearted baby, ever since the day you left me..." that would be country music. *bleh*
"i've been down hearted baby, ever since the day we met..." (the actual b.b. lyric) now that ... that's the blues.
reminds me of what the emo fellow at a local falafel joint observed one day when t. asked him the difference between goth and emo: "goth is when you hate everyone else. emo is when you hate yourself." (no offense to the emo people who don't hate themselves out there. i assume you exist.)
i recently watched "the libertine" which was yet another amazing depp movie, though more so than usual. pain can be poetry when it doesn't flinch.
btw, if you haven't seen the red hat summit videos yet, it's worth the download and your time. both cory doctorow and eben moglen deliver truly thought provoking and inspiring bits on freedom. and nary a bit of red hat sales pitch in them. love 'em or not, red hat is a company that truly does grok the concepts of free software and what the role of a for-profit corporate entity can be within that.
