Current Music Cravings

  • Mika - The Boy Who Knew Too Much

    The Boy Who Knew Too Much
    Mika: The Boy Who Knew Too Much

    I was a bit worried when a young artist releases a really wonderful first album. Is that all there is going to be? Is that as good as it gets? Mika once again proves how bloody talented he is. This is a far more lush and darker album. I absolutely love it! Cannot wait to see the boy in action in November 2009!!!! (*****)

  • Mika - We Are Golden

    We Are Golden
    Mika: We Are Golden

    I am loving this! To say nothing of the film clip ;-). The Boy strikes again. I love it! Cannot wait until the album comes out. Only a few more sleeps now!! (*****)

  • Sia - Some People Have Real Problems

    Some People Have Real Problems
    Sia: Some People Have Real Problems

    F*cking Awesome. (*****)

  • Michael Jackson - Number Ones

    Number Ones
    Michael Jackson: Number Ones

    This one was brought the day he died. The kids have not let me play anything else in the car ever since. Dear God, as much as I love MJ, please let me play another album one day soon?!?!? (*****)

  • Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson 25th Anniversary of Thriller (CD+DVD)

    Michael Jackson 25th Anniversary of Thriller (CD+DVD)
    Michael Jackson: Michael Jackson 25th Anniversary of Thriller (CD+DVD)

    Yeah yeah yeah, I know... Excellent version of Beat It featuring Fergie (*****)

  • Michael Jackson - Dangerous

    Michael Jackson: Dangerous

    Gotta Love it. Great Album!! (*****)

  • Icehouse - Measure for Measure

    Measure for Measure
    Icehouse: Measure for Measure

    Saw the ballet of Boxes which Iva Davies scored. It had the wonderful "No Promises" song. I am loving this album all over again, having just got it on CD. Sort of a Down Under answer to the great Bowie (*****)

  • Tim Finn - The Conversation

    The Conversation
    Tim Finn: The Conversation

    This is such a lovely album. I never realised how distinctive Eddie Raynor's piano playing is, and how much it can lift Tim Finn's music. Beautiful, balanced, thoughtful, totally immersing - just as a good conversation should be! Love ya Tim. (*****)

  • Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - Raising Sand

    Raising Sand
    Robert Plant and Alison Krauss: Raising Sand

    Sublime. Although T Bone needs to get some more producing tricks up his sleeve, he can turn anyone into a Patsy Cline clone. Not that this is a bad thing..... Really nice album, but no real surprises. (****)

  • Robert Plant - The Honeydrippers, Vol. 1

    The Honeydrippers, Vol. 1
    Robert Plant: The Honeydrippers, Vol. 1

    Robert Plant strikes again. God how I adore 'Sea of Love'. It was playing in Myers today, and I started to sing along. Ya just cannot help it! Lovely (*****)

  • Yo Yo MA Edgar Myer Mark O' Connor - Appalachian Journey

    Appalachian Journey
    Yo Yo MA Edgar Myer Mark O' Connor: Appalachian Journey

    I got this one as I love Appalachian music, and Alison Krauss features on some of the tracks. Yo Yo rulz the cello!!! (*****)

  • Vol. 2-Countdown One Hit Wonders
    : Vol. 2-Countdown One Hit Wonders

    Boo Yeah! Great selection from in some cases, truly forgettable artists. Mind you, I do NOT agree with groups like DEVO being lumped in as a 'one hit wonder'... (****)
  • Watch Me Disappear
    Augie March: Watch Me Disappear

    Haven't yet finished this but am very EXCITED. Very Finn sounding.... (****)
  • P!ink: Funhouse
    I really like P!nk's music. I particularly love the filmclip to "So What". Gotta love a girl that can take the p!ss outta herself. (*****)
  • Laura Marling -

    Laura Marling: Alas I Cannot Swim
    I SO love this album. Really unique. Despite being compared with Duffy and Colbie, I think she maintains her uniqueness and I think is a step up from the rest. I actually paid for a hard copy of this, as I think it's in line with Laura's philosophy of maintaining that intimacy with the recording artist.... Thank you to 666 ABC radio Canberra for turning me onto this artist! (*****)

  • David Bowie -

    David Bowie: Best of Bowie
    Ah now, what can you say about the man who has been part of your musical life for, like, forever. Sigh. He's always had it, has still got it and always will! (*****)

  • Colbie Caillat -

    Colbie Caillat: Coco
    Really nice album. Gracie in particular likes this. This just shows you how bizarre my taste is in music. One minute it's the Cavester, then Colbie Caillat. Very easy listening without being like the rest of them there young Americans... (*****)

  • Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Dig Lazurus Dig
    The Cavester returns. Only he now sounds a little bit like a cross between Tom Waites and Johnny Cash. Not at all a bad mix, just a bit disconcerting. But Nick, like the rest of us is getting on. No longer the skinny teenager scaring the hell out of the mundanes with the Birthday Party... Heh, now those were the days
  • Soundtrack -

    Soundtrack: Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street Deluxe - Complete Edition
    Despite people hanging sh*t on the very idea of Hollywood making this version, Johnny Depp carries off the title role quite impressively thank you very much. It's a very different interpretation, and Sondheim has really, really knuckled down on the singers as far as following the highly syncopated melody lines. This is an incredibly hard musical score and the cast are to be commended on how well they handle it, particularly those actors not known for their singing. (*****)

  • Mika -

    Mika: Life In Cartoon Motion
    Gotta LOVE this guy. Freddie Mercury will never be gone while Mika lives! Fanastic voice. (*****)

Caity, you norty girl, you were up far too late!!! I hope you've had a good sleep. The mercerised cotton is beautiful - I keep looking at it and fondling every now and then.... wow, that sounds so wrong. But quilter's understand! Testfabrics are just the best company to work with - soooo helpful and bend over backwards to help Australians in need!

My life's been basically boring. Not much on my mind today. I've just been letting everything pass me by recently, but such is life. Basically nothing seems worth bothering with, but eh. It's not important. I've just been hanging out doing nothing.

I've just been letting everything wash over me. I've pretty much been doing nothing. I've just been sitting around not getting anything done.

I haven't been up to much recently, but whatever. I just don't have much to say lately. Basically nothing happening to speak of. So it goes. My mind is like a complete blank. Such is life.
