Doing the things I didn't do really does make a difference when I do them. Today since I didn't do them I woke up stiff and with a sore back (which has now mostly gone away thanks to 3 ibu).
I listened to No You Don't and ACDC. NYD: I was impressed with Brian's lead singer ability. Also the tension in that song is superb. And the playing the guitar with a violin bow or beer can or whatever. That is my favorite Chinn & Chapman song. ACDC: More pop sounding. Mick's drums are amazingly precise and complex.
Stairway to the Stars has got everything. A pop hook, a melody, danceable syncopation, sex appeal, thick soaring vocals. I was blown away by how complex it was. I never noticed that when I was listening to the stuff at age 14. It doesn't make a lot of sense that I would notice it now. I guess I have had a lot more experience listening to music and that stuff comes out. I wonder what musical experience caused that -- maybe African drumming classes? Or is it "musical talent"?
Yesterday I also made a folder full of Alan Rickman web sites. I like looking at him (although looking at him move is more interesting than looking at still photos).
Harrison Ford's sneer looks like a poor simplistic copy of Alan Rickman's.
