RE: Today 05-28-2007 08:26 Forum: General Discussion


That is melancholy, sprinklerhead, but I think its lack of commercial appeal is likely a big factor. On the other hand, one could argue that for all the talk about and hubub surrounding Easter and especially Christmas, those two holidays are neglected in their own way.

The call to worship yesterday was partly as litany based on the passage from Joel. I enjoyed hearing the Daniel Amos song in my head for the rest of the day.

Eins, zwei, eins! 09-14-2006 15:08 Forum: General Discussion


It was mentioned quite some time ago that in "The Double," Terry and whoever else was chanting, "one, two, one" in German seemed to be mispronouncing "ein" as "eins." Well, I was listening to Nena's 2005 #1 hit "Liebe ist", had to look up a translation online, & found this line in the original German: "wir sind zwei und wir sind eins." (We are two and we are one)

So, I looked in our Manual of European Languages for Librarians & found this bon mot (bolding is original):

"Ein is declined like the indefinite article, the form eins being used in counting and telling time. Zwei and drei have G[enative] -er and D[ative] -en, but they are only used to avoid ambiguity. The others may have D -en when used without a noun, e.g. auf allen Vieren, on all fours.

I guess "eins" is also used when it doesn't have a noun. Anyway, in short, the word "eins" appears to be correct in the song "The Double."

We now return to something people besides me find interesting. Big Grin

At a certain point, novelty gets old. That's why marketers focus on the same 18-30 demographic even as more people approach retirement age. You start to appreciate what is good rather than what is just new. Good art takes a while to dig in and take root.

Next time it happens, I'll try to count how many times in a row I can listen to "Drunk on the Tears" or "What's Come over Me."

There are many reasons why a disc might fail. It could be cracks or scratches that you can't even see. It could be that where you live is tough on optical discs. And on rare occassions, the disc may be defective; in any mass-production environment, there will be some lemons even if 99% of the product of that factory is good. You could have the one bad disc out of every 10,000 (just an example).

In CD-ROM discs (including audio recordings), the metal-reflective data layer is very close to the label of the disc. It is relatively vulnerable compared to the data layer of a DVD-ROM disc, and is more likely to be damaged from the label side than from the readout surface. The National Istitute of Standards and Technology estimates that CD-ROM discs have a life before failure of 20-100 years; the data is still out for some of it, but even the highest estimate is 400 years shorter than microfilm--which is one reason, along with changing digital data standards, that microfilm isn't going to disappear anytime soon.

NIST CD and DVD guide

One paragraph of interest:

"ROM disc longevity is determined by the extent to which its aluminum layer is exposed to oxygen. Oxygen, including pollutants, can migrate through the polycarbonate layer or the hard laquer layer carried in by moisture. Oxygen or moisture can more easily penetrate through scratches, cracks, or delaminated areas in the label. Oxygen can also be trapped inside the disc during manufacturing, although manufacturing improvements have reduced the likelihood of this."

Just listening to Mr. Buechner's Dream at work today, and with its artful use of noise, generous amounts of distortion, and the advanced relationships between some of the parts, I have to ask:

What could you possibly have done Tim that Terry thought he was too old to handle it?!

Now I must hear it!

Sincere appreciation 07-06-2006 09:39 Forum: General Discussion


I was listening to one of my playlists at work when "A Sigh for You" came up. I remember how much I played the Fearful Symmetry album in college. But it just this morning dawned on me the way in which that album differed from everything else. It is the way in which Daniel Amos music and Terry Taylor's words really differ from everything else in my experience. They can be cynical and satirical with the best of them, but what sets them apart is the ability to be sincere about the life of faith.

So much of the music when I was in college was either morose and alienated, or it was so upbeat as bear no relationship to my own experiences. Or it was simply impressed with its own cleverness, which is its own type of alienation. Fearful Symmetry came along at the right time as something completely different from what was being pumped out of a thousand speakers around campus.

How many other bands can release an album with the likes of "Neverland Ballroom" and "Instruction through Film" on it & also include "A Sigh for You" and "When the Moonlight Sleeps"? And how many can be sincere without constantly veering into sappiness or producing a song seeming to consist entirely of phrases from Psalms spliced together? How many could produce "Shadow Catcher" at all?

There are a few, but not nearly enough. It's usually either "painted all black" or rose-colored. So while Daniel Amos may often be noted for their cleverness and sharp wit, here is a small tribute to their sincerity.

Sorry to hear about your safely induced injury. I hope you feel better this week.

I once almost injured myself picking up a loaded 2-drawer filing cabinet. Well, that's not completely true. I was lifting weights in those days & I knew I could maintain proper position and either pick it up or not. What I wouldn't do was pick it up wrong. But as I started to raise it off the floor, half a dozen people jumped at me to try to stop me, causing me to lose positioning. They couldn't understand why I was so mad at them for "helping."
