Noisetrade

Looky over there ----->

It's some lovely music from Sarah Masen and you can have it, for free! Or, if you think it's totally ace and you'd like the artist to have some of your money, you can give them some.

Check out the title linkage for more music. I approve of this, lots and lots. Anyone know of a similar thing for writing/stories? Would be interested.

Stuff Christian Culture Likes


This website is funny. Particularly if you have encountered/ been a part of/ are still a part of evangelical Christian culture. I liked the post about having a man-crush on Bono. But also the one I've linked to, which is about getting rid of all your best (/'evil') music. I can only remember doing away with a pretty good album by The Cult. But I do remember quite vividly walking away from a lecture about backwards masking and the evils of rock music thinking, 'Wow, Led Zeppelin, they're pretty good!'. I later found a parental copy of 'Led Zeppelin Volume II' in the roofspace and leanred how to play 'Whole Lotta Love' on the (classical) guitar that belonged to my mother. These days you don't have to work too hard to get rid of your music, itunes will regularly delete it all without asking you :)

A Little Late

But I always am. Just remembered about this this morning and thought it was worth posting. Definitely worth listening to until the end. Whatever you thought of him, well, tunes like this speak for themselves. And Foy Vance is wonderful.
