Spoon - Gimme Fiction, Four Tet - Everything Ecstatic

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The Moldau River, Prague.


When I started this shit I wasn't too sure where it would end up. It was almost like a kind of experiment. Is it possible to get (how many?) hits on a website without any promotion other than posting the link on ONE message board (a busy one), just by giving away an album a day?
It wasn't just that: I am very ill right now and I wanted to do this for other reasons too.
OK that's enough sentimentality! ARRGGH!
Point being that it is possible: Posted the first page up on June 11th. It is now July 1st and yesterday the hit counter crossed the 10,000 mark.
Great.
Thanks for even bothering.

Onward!
I don't have time to do or say anything much. Today, real life is taking me away from the computer chair,(It does actually happen you know).
Just managed to get these albums up. I thought that as it is Friday and I am in a good mood(? -must do something about that!) then you can have both:
Spoon - Gimme Fiction and Four Tet - Everything Ecstatic

PLUS! An extra extra bonus for you all..
I don't profess to know very much about Classical music. However, right back when I was at school the music teacher one day gave us all a blank piece of paper and a pencil. He told us to listen to some music and draw or write a list of what we saw, thought of, or what we imagined the music was telling us. The tune was so powerful to my mind that, totally against my 'hard man' veneer, I waited until my mates had gone at the end of the class and 'secretly' asked the teacher for a copy!

Here is that tune for you..
Vltava (The Moldau) By Bedrich Smetana.

(I know, an open link..well it is a LEGAL one)

Let's all go to Prague..

Do yourself a favour and get some more of his music. I can try to get it soon.
Oh and what was the result of the teachers 'experiment'?
A lot of people, myself included, correctly associated the music with the flow of water.
From wikipedia: '...Best-known, Vltava (The Moldau), also from 1874, describes the course of that river from near its origin down to Prague.'
Amazing.
