Carnival of Music #21

Welcome to the Carnival of Music. As usual, we have a very eclectic selection for your enjoyment.

The first submission comes from T.A.N., as he calls it, a hip hop blog song inspired by Andrew Krucoff [don't know who he is? read the post.]

Elisa Camahort
presents a review of her most recent iTunes purchases.

Andrew Ian Dodge has been writing about putting together some songs for his band, Growing Old Disgracefully. They've put together a 4 song CD for CD Baby, and have been using the web to spread their music. They're having some confusion among reviewers, who don't know how to pigeonhole the music. I don't think anyone's going to confuse them with Donnie & Marie, though.

Brian Sacawa of Sounds Like Now has some thoughts on how spaces on the web are connecting musicians and fans.

And Geemodo has some thoughts on Sony's [aka The Evil Empire's] rootkit, including a link giving a pretty detailed, non-geekspeak explanation for how to tell if your computer is infected, and how to get rid of the rootkit if it is. There are several other posts on Sony over there, as well.

And by the way, if after reading his posts, you want to boycott Sony, you can sign this petition. I have.

The last time I hosted, I did something of a roundup of previous posters from Carnivals 1-5. So let's take a look at 6-9.

The Fredosphere
is wondering about Robert Ashley and thinking about rules in art.

Musical Perceptions has some thoughts on Countertenors, and a list of 10 dissertation titles that should never exist.

A Sweet, Familiar Dissonance
tries to remember "What was the name of that song?" and has found some more music blogs.

Jessica Duchen has some CD recommendations and writes extensively about ORCHESTRAL LIFE: THE FULL STORY.

On An Overgrown Path has several interesting posts, but I like the quote in Culture is Remix.

oboeinsight is having some reed problems.

has a review of The Kronos Quartet's performance in Sandiego.

has some thoughts on Neil Diamond.

uTopianTurtleTop has some thoughts on the connection between poems and music.

The LlamaButchers have thoughts on Classical Composer Action Figures.

The Bookish Gardender likes her her childrens' music practice.

Mixolydian Mode also notes Sony's mischief, and has a fun piece on trombones.

PostClassic has just gotten back from a toy piano conference, and has a wrapup of interesting things.

Think Denk has thoughts connecting fortune cookies and a question: "How do you rehearse?"

A Monk's Musical Musings
has been musing on Mechanical Efficiency and music. discusses mesmerising huge works. From Bach, of course.

And finally, a musical request of my own.

The permanent home of the Carnival of Music is here, at TexasBestGrok. Next week's Carnival will be at Sounds Like Now.

Oh god, you went & joined the Munuvians. What's next, Scientology?

Heh. No, with the advent of flat screen real-time VR in 2009, neural based VR in 2013, and the Mind Web in 2017, God's revelation to the Web will significantly diminish the influence of all pre-sync religions. Thus, MuNu's world domination by 2035 will involve other forms of indirect meme control.

Besides, Scientology is just a bunch of idiots operating under a science fiction writer's biggest joke.

I've just been staying at home not getting anything done. I've basically been doing nothing worth mentioning. My life's been pretty unremarkable these days. Eh.

I've just been staying at home waiting for something to happen, but I don't care. Basically nothing seems worth thinking about. I can't be bothered with anything recently.

I've just been staying at home waiting for something to happen. Whatever. Not much on my mind lately. I guess it doesn't bother me.
