Don't Believe Everything You Hear

January 16, 2006

Nothing much to do, again, during those painfully restless moments before sleeptime, I immerse again myself into the escapist's world of music and literature.

Half a dozen albums I've been listening to for the past couple of nights:
1. Lowlife - From a Scream to a Whisper, 1990
2. Rumblefish - Everything Electrical, 1992
3. The Desert Wolves - Pontification, 1988
4. Balloon - Gravity, 1992
5. The Ocean Blue - The Ocean Blue, 1989
6. The Ocean Blue - Beneath the Rhythm and Sound, 1993

My current half a dozen favorite songs:
1. Lowlife - "Ramafied" and "Hollow Gut"
2. Rumblefish - "What You Do to Me"
3. The Desert Wolves - "Mexico" and "Speak to Me, Rochelle"
4. Balloon - "Transfixion"
5. The Ocean Blue - "Ask Me, Jon" and "Sublime"
6. Monaco - "I've Got a Feeling"


A dozen books I will be ordering at Chapters online:

2. The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan
3. The Moon Lady by Amy Tan
4. Monsters & Aliens from George Lucas by Bob Carrau

2. The Chronicles of Narnia
3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
6. The Memoirs of a Geisha
