It's only Tuesday yet the day has got that Friday feel to it, ever since i switched days at work I'm all sorts of off schedule both here and there, finally saw the film Dig on DVD Sunday at a good friends pad, having always like both of the bands the film seemed at times to slam one and herald the other which i thought was a bit cheeky and walked away digging the BJM a bit more than the DW's simply on attitude.
The saying Motivation is Everything comes to mind, as well as the knowledge that our motivations can change (having children has done it fairly quickly for most people i know, I'm not yet blessed with that but dig how that responsibility shifts priorities ) most people don't even understand their motivations or even how our motivations are/can be perceived by others and it becomes an even slippery slope once fame and money and acceptance of your "art" are put on the table.
Seen people act out in some scary and bizarre ways after selling several hundred Cd's and have seen others remain humble in the face of huge ( and i mean HUGE) fame not often but it has happened, It's all about the original inner almost secret from the self motivation for what they were doing that burning desire/passion to do "it" [whatever it is].
In A Bit of a Non-Sequiter-Many years ago i felt like iTunes and The iPod had (and they did no doubt about it) reconnected me to music in that it was swift, easy and i could find tunes by just typing in a name and no longer had to schlep crates of Lp's to DJ, but now I'm vibin' that there is also this disconnect somehow.
Digital files they're neatly tucked away on a small hard drive and the Cd's that put much of the digital tunes on it are again neatly packed away on a shelf or in a box, But the vinyl man it's there in the morning, afternoon and evening stubbing toes and tripping over crates they're unavoidably there even a small record collection requires/demands square footage and visual respect which connects us to them and the delights they hold in an ever more powerful way.
Vinyl was and is the perfect way to end or curtail the paranoia about piracy hell even a great copy of a vinyl sounds a bit removed [although the digital process is pretty damn good] so once again bring back Vinyl....Vinyl Rules....alright nuff grumpy old man shite see ya tomorrow with a little sumthin' sumthin'
