I saw Tommy Emmanuel live on Tuesday evening, probably the best thing I've seen on a stage. Maybe the best ever!

The Hatsune Miku "live" concert. The future of live music? Or the beginning of the end?

So, one of my favorite songs by The Prodigy is Narayan. I've just found a psychadellic rock cover/sister song of basically the same name. It's really quite sweet, and I may have to look into this band a bit more.

The Trails by Tommy Emmanuel. His new album is out on Spotify, but won't be released in the UK until next year.

Ol' Blue Eyes' rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Yes, in fact, it will be! Listening to the album "Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys" in preparation. Bunch of traditional sea songs, or at least traditional-sounding sea songs, done by modern artists. Good version of Haul Away Joe in there.

Slade - Cum On Feel The Noize.

I do find it amusing that the kids I'll be talking to tomorrow will regard Slade as a bunch of old hippies that made 'that christmas song' and won't have a clue that they were just as rebellious as NWA and Public Enemy were for my generation :haha:

Your generation?...I've been going under the assumption that you were a mere whipper snapper!

I remember Slade when they were a skinhead group!

You used to get novels in those days in which the sole plot was getting skinheads and rockers/bikers to beat each other half to death...I tried reading one once whilst I was on a Boy Scouts outing to Port Eynon Youth Hostel but it was too horrible and I ended up getting pegged out on the beach with the tide coming in...life imitating literature a little too closely for my liking.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

I saw a band called Bonobo last weekend at Troxy in the East End of London :paranoid:

A good performance and the jazzy/instrumental music was great. I'm not sure if it was worth £25 though ...

So much Electric Six.

Right now it's on Transatlantic Flight. "In the event of a water landing, you can use my body as a flotation device."
