I worked for much of the day on some music, an apparent album-length thing that's fallen together without planning. It's mostly jam based rhythm/noise stuff akin to my Sophist stuff, but maybe a bit more developed. Lofi crunchy beat noise whatever.

A little disconcerting that this album has basically congealed when the two albums that have been the main goal for the last many months have stalled.


We had some lovely vegetarian pho for dinner with some nice unfiltered sake. We wondered about how / why the endorphin rush happens when we eat good pho.


Listened to Spotify a bit.

I felt weird about listening to Ian Anderson's "Thick as a Brick 2" which he's shortened to TAAB2. It struck me as the best thing they've done in about 20 years or more, but at the same time utterly offensively awful. I feel very bad that Jethro Tull was pretty much my favorite band during my very early years. They are unequivocally bad.

Then I listened to some music by Accept, a heavy metal band that never quite resonated with me. Udo Dirkschneider's voice reminded me very strongly of Bon Scott's AC/DC. Their "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" was one of my first "heavy metal" albums, I found an 8-track one day along the dirt road that led to my house from the paved road where I got off the bus. It was unmarked but ended up being that album by AC/DC. It was one of the first albums that I owned that wasn't within the "Christian music only" stricture I had been held under for years. I have a soft spot for the album, even though it's not very good.


I'd thought about re-joining twitter this weekend, but haven't done it. I think I'll wait until the kerfuffle with Impulsive Habitat is solved.

I always liked what one reviewer wrote of Jethro Tull melodies--that they were unforgettable but not danceable, which is not strictly speaking true but struck me as an interesting phrase. I like Jethro Tull fine, though I mostly think of it as background music when I used to play chess with my friends in high school.

I like a good pho, too. I feel lucky to have lots of good pho places in town.

That's great that you're making progress on new music.
