    1. Debaser987 May 8, 2017Reportreferencing Electr-O-Pura (CD, Album) OLE 132-2This is my favorite record of all time. Equal parts tender and fierce, this record challenges me as much as it entertains. Ira's shimmering guitar lines crackle with subtle complexities. Georgia's drumming is right in the pocket with James' hypnotic baselines. I've been getting lost in this record for years and every time I listen I find something new beneath the carefully crafted sonic layers. The songwriting is meditative, intimate, personal, and immediate. Pablo and Andrea is an absolute gem of a pop song. The virtuosic guitar solo on My Heart's Reflection equally melodic as it atonal. Tom Courtenay should be THE anthem of awkward indie kids everywhere. This record somehow manages to find balances between contradictions - harmony and dissonance, simplicity and complexity, chaos and order - and makes you believe they were never opposites in the first place.

    1. “La evolución de las costumbres”, incluso con una lírica de nuevo bastante elevada (“se hacen ferias de muestras de la modernidad, a los cuentos de niños se les cambia el final, son los tiempos modernos, que nos tocan vivir, se aplazó el sueño eterno, es mejor no reir”) y con el aura del post-rock

    1. At the time he was selling, Jay-Z was also coming up with rhymes. He normally wrote down his material in a green notebook he carried around with him — but he never took the notebook with him on the streets, he says. "I would run into the corner store, the bodega, and just grab a paper bag or buy juice — anything just to get a paper bag," he says. "And I'd write the words on the paper bag and stuff these ideas in my pocket until I got back. Then I would transfer them into the notebook. As I got further and further away from home and my notebook, I had to memorize these rhymes — longer and longer and longer. ... By the time I got to record my first album, I was 26, I didn't need pen or paper — my memory had been trained just to listen to a song, think of the words, and lay them to tape." Since his first album, he says, he's never written down any of his lyrics. "I've lost plenty of material," he says. "It's not the best way. I wouldn't advise it to anyone. I've lost a couple albums' worth of great material. ... Think about when you can't remember a word and it drives you crazy. So imagine forgetting an entire rhyme. 'What's that? I said I was the greatest something?' "

      In his youth, while selling drugs on the side, Jay-Z would write down material for lyrics into a green notebook. He never took the notebook around with him on the streets, but instead would buy anything at a corner store just for the paper bags as writing material. He would write the words onto these paper bags and stuff them into his pockets (wearable Zettelkasten anyone? or maybe Zetteltasche?) When he got home, in long standing waste book tradition, he would transfer the words to his notebook.

      Jay-Z has said he hasn't written down any lyrics since his first album, but warns, "I've lost plenty of material. It's not the best way. I wouldn't advise it to anyone. I've lost a couple albums' worth of great material."

    1. The Tegos Tapes is an interesting example of an obscure and heretofore unreleased Vangelis soundtrack unknown by many of even his most devoted fans.The Tegos Tapes were produced originally by the Greek medical professional Dr. Stergios Tegos, and contain educational examples of his microneurosurgery work. This VHS set of tapes was not intended for general release to the Public as these training videos were mainly intended for student surgeons in training or offered to other microneurosurgeons via Dr. Tegos exclusively.Dr. Tegos asked his close friend Vangelis to create a background soundtrack to accompany these videos and Vangelis agreed, composing nearly 8 hours of some of his more pleasing and ambient music. Dr. Tegos thought that a background musical score composed and performed by Vangelis himself would ease the monotony and dryness of the subject matter and help the viewer to focus more effectively.
