    Yeah, I liked the completely cold reads, listens, or views that we used to have, too. I sometimes come away from something feeling like you describe – I didn’t quite get it, but I want to do it again, but it bugs me. For some reason, I like that feeling, but “like” is an odd word to use, since I’m usually somewhat irritated in the moment.Report

    The thing to remember about “experimental” , whether it is fiction, film, music, or the hard sciences, it that it is just that. An experiment. It might fail, it might be about something else entirely. But it is a stab at a new direction. So that is good.

    I have been watching documentaries about the early LA punks, the late seventies period (this is one of the great things about the internet and youtube. I can find all kinds of things that captivate me. Anyway, I just watched an interesting one about the Minutemen, We Jam Econo. I does a halfway decent job of looking into the musicianship of bands, and gives a hint at how music was so different pre-hardcore. Recomended.

    Also just reread Ellroy’s Black Dahlia. Dang, those are some dark pathways.Report

      I’m not a huge fan of TED talks, so put it mildly. Having said that, if Mike Watt wanted to do a four hour talk, I would gladly listen to it. I like his general philosophy about music and life and just about everything he’s done.Report
