Au lieu de chercher Dieu dans les œuvres, nous
nous cherchons nous-mêmes. Notre paresse est
telle que nous préférons de basses impressions
aisées, qui nous diminuent, aux grandioses qui
exigent de l'effort.

You don't want to cheat when playing solitaire <3

Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves

Stereolab ...loving this song

Oh wow, what a coincidence that Stereolab just did an interview published in the Guardian and this is what Lætitia Sadier said about this song:

The lyrics to Ketchup's opening song, Metronomic Underground, are appropriately meditative, and ponder the infinite. "The purer the connection you have to the universe, the more things are going to flow in your life," she says. "And of course, the struggle is that there's a system out there that doesn't want you to connect to the universe or the forces of nature, because if you do so you're empowered and you're going to buy less shit."
👏👏👏

I'm jealous to anyone in New Mexico next week as they are playing at Meow Wolf, an awesome little mindbending avant-garde art space ....that's bound to be great

Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

Some of my favourite tracks from an amazing album, 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary: 






"Where the flesh meets the spirit world,
Where the traffic is thin..."

Still can't believe this is an unreleased one considering it's one of their finest...

Not really one for a sunny late summer afternoon, but anyway...

I'd never actually seen this clip, @MeltingMan, though I have the album from way back! :)  I love how they really didn't give a damn if anyone thought this was an embarrassing topic to sing about, they just were who they were.  Of course, a lot of people thought it was about a girl...

Leap forward 16 years to a completely different type of song:


I wasn't sure about that stuff when it first came out, and I still don't like the multimedia live stuff they did back then, but a lot of the material grew on me retrospectively, when I'd gotten over U2 sounding postmodern...

This next song (same album) gets an award from me for capturing a mood:


Not always easy to write about this and get it right, but I think this one ticks all the boxes...

Thanks for inspiring a re-listen! :)  Und einen guten Tag noch!  ;)

You're a sly one, @MeltingMan;) That song continues the theme.  So does this one:


...this is one of my favourites, although there is so, so much great stuff to choose from:


So much good music in the world... :heart-eyes
