    "Life is very short, and there's not time,
    For fussing and fighting, my friend"

    A line from the song "We Can Work It Out" by the Beatles. Remarkeable song by the way, not only for its lyrics. It changes fluently between 4/4 and 3/4.

    Edit: today on Synthtopia there is a quote from a certain Danielle Egnew (never heard her name before):

    "Music is the language that can only be heard when you get your own thoughts out of the way."

    For me, reading fiction and writing it don’t usually go together. And I actually went for very long without listening to any music except for a single thing here or there. I just couldn’t connect with anything and my heart wasn’t in it.

    But a little while ago I continued my odyssey throught the digital archives of The Gramophone magazine and now I’m listening to dozens of pieces every day. (Looking up on Spotify any piece mentioned that piques my interest. It doesn’t have everything, of course, but many of them.)

    And this happened with a sudden boost in writing music when I created my first full symphony orchestra template in Notion, and now I’m writing more music than ever before. I must say that the return to listening to music a lot has also helped me feel better in what are some difficult and lonely times on a personal level.

    yes this can also be the case.

    I often get some ideas for own music projects when I hear a snippet of music, or music that is played far away where it is not clearly recognisable. In the mind the missing parts get completed, usually very different from the original source.

    Interesting. I would have to go back through endless journals, but I imagine some correlation between music use and happiness down the years....

    It may also be largely due to just kind of having a window open, with a stream of new stimuli. I get too wrapped up in my own thoughts, and listening to a lot of music seems to just refresh and distract my trains of thought, and help keep me moving along. Also for me it’s really helpful to listen to a wide variety from different times, and actually most of my listening is now of very old recordings. That too gives me some kind of perspective and helps me feel less weighed down by whatever my current worries may be.

    Good stuff. There's an interesting essay in this somewhere, especially as regards listening to music (or experiencing other arts) from different/previous eras...

  • Wow, that's a great quote. Resonates.

    And now I feel uncomfortable finding solace in that fount of wisdom.

    Yeah, read that and thought, well, there goes the forum.... :)

    I've been thinking about this some more and what makes it interesting is not the mistakes but the pursuit of false assumptions. When you try to apply those to ones own life it starts off hard and then becomes sobering...

    While I agree with this (and while it took far too much of my life before I realized it applied to me as well), I very much doubt it was dear Percy who said it. No one seems to really know: https://quoteinvestigator.com/2010/05/17/remain-silent/

  • I shouldn’t speak or type ever really, but you have to work with what you’ve got.

    Thanks boss for the clarification 😁
    Yup the amount of disinformation is astounding

    Don’t take the quote personally 😁
    It was my momentary goof thinking the internet a fountain of unending wisdom :D

    I love this album ^^

    My favorite version of that song:

  • Or she's gonna do it really, really well, but only at home with the lights out.

    It was Shelley!
    The great Shelley Berman.

    IRL I do a lot of very customized research and your nugget makes me wonder if there is some unknown correlation at play here. I am 6'4" also. Must be a pattern. iOS, tall people, disdain for monsters by way of familiarity etc.

    6’3” here, but unless Mrs Monzo is taking up more than her share of the bed, limbs are kept firmly under the duvet. It’s Mid Wales, not the Costa Brava look

    Seems like a pretty large coincidence.

  • I’ve been making new noises all day Boss, as the Mrs took jnr out for the day. Got a headache now mind.
