    Gold Rush by death cab for cutie has been stuck in my brain for a few weeks:

    "I like who I am when I'm with him. I like who we are together."

      Ok this isn't music, but I've been listening to the free Big Finish Doctor Who audios on Spofity, namely the Main Range titles. If you're a Doctor Who fan you'll enjoy them, and just to recommend one I'd go for The Holy Terror.

        Pet Shop Boys new single. Okay but I've heard better. They're touring next year and playing Manchester. I stopped myself buying tickets 'cos it was ?500-600 for a pair but I'm regretting it now. I was hoping my lads had taken the hint and bought me a couple for Christmas but it seems they've frittered their spare cash on a fortnight in New York (selfish ingrates. I tried reminding them who it was who gave birth to them but to no avail. I've taken to sighing a lot in their company ).

          Just taking it as a straight what are you listening to, I just stepped back into the 80s when I was making lunch. I'm sure I would have said this was cool then, but dang look at that hair.

            these days, trying to write (deadlines tuesday
            and 14 october), inspiration and concentration from:

            baseball games... for baseball is the poet's sport—

            (were this a poetry thread, i'd give you jack spicer's
            brilliant baseball poems... "Pitchers are not human.
            They have the ghosts of dead people in them.")

            nick cave, always nick cave:

            quantum physics, the assassination of MLK, jr., Miley Cyrus,
            colonialism, desire, and... "Can you feel my heart beat....?")

                Not in the UK (England?) it ain't!

                There's a breathless hush in the Close to-night—
                Ten to make and the match to win—
                A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
                An hour to play and the last man in.
                And it's not for the sake of a ribboned coat,
                Or the selfish hope of a season's fame,
                But his captain's hand on his shoulder smote
                "Play up! play up! and play the game*!"

                  Well, Walt Whitman, Marianne Moore, among others...

                  But most of all, Jack Spicer:

                  Pitchers are obviously not human. They have the ghosts of dead
                  people in them. You wait while they glower, put their hands
                  to their mouths, fidget like puppets, while you're waiting
                  to catch the ball.
                  You give them signs. They usually ignore them. A fast outside
                  curve. High, naturally. And scientifically impossible. Where
                  the batter either strikes out of he doesn't. You either catch
                  it or you don't. You had called for an inside fast ball.
                  The runners on base either advance or they don't.
                  In any case
                  The ghosts of the dead people find it mighty amusing. The
                  pitcher, in his sudden humaness looks toward the dugout
                  in either agony or triumph. You, in either case, have a pair
                  of hot hands.
                  Being communicated
                  Even when the game isn't over.

                    This is our version of baseball. Dogs compulsory! You can see why we don't write poems about it!

                      as Whitman said, baseball has
                      "the snap, go, fling of the American personality"

                      (not sure that is a good thing, but... )

                      however, no dogs allowed on the baseball field—

                      although stray cats do, on occasion, wander in—

                      and sometimes climb up the electronic scoreboard...

                      (and cats, too, have inspired many marvelous
                      poems: think Baudelaire.... )

                        Heard it somewhere randomly last week and was blown away. The entire album is great as well, love it. I've been also listening to Oneohtrix Point Never a lot lately - it's that time of the year, you know? It's getting colder, it's getting dark sooner, I crave some nostalgic synthesizer melancholia.

                          Been listening to this on repeat, Asturias is my favourite
                          Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

                          The only other guitarist who comes close is Ana Vidovic:

                                      It's okay so far but I'm only on chapter 3. JM sounds great, thought very American It's set in modern day Chicago and sounds like a mafia involved whodunit, though with magic overtones. JM is playing a modern version Sam Spadey, Philip Marlowey type, private eye who's also a wizard.
