Speaking of that, what did you think of Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret and Discography? You didn't put any of your own thoughts and I'd be interested in hearing them. The former is one of my very favorite albums.
Yeah, the Sun Ra albums were a twofer. I'd be more inclined to think Angels & Demons were a ten-inch except that I thought that ten-inch LPs had basically died out after the mid '50s. Good album ("whoa" about its recording dates).
I looked up Expansions on Amazon and found only a listing of $80 for a used CD or $16 for a new LP. To quote a scam-artist mortgage broker who used to advertise on the radio (of mortgage refinancing with his company): "it's the biggest no-brainer in the history of earth!" The inner sleeve shows what occasion the album was released. I don't have it handy right now but I think it was reissued for Blue Note's 75th anniversary. It's really cool, yeah. Maybe the only classic jazz LP I buy because they're really expensive and good luck finding them in thrift shops. I kind of dig Carter's cello-playing (as I said, on the last track especially) but he can be hard on the ear.
Yeah, I would have watched Lebowski more if it had been more than a 24-hour rental. As it is I was lucky to get two viewings in but I started to warm up to it. Julianne Moore shows her tits from across the room when she makes her first appearance but they're strategically avoided in the bedroom scene, et cetera. Like a stunt double, but a nude double? I might rent it again sometime; I've got a bunch of stuff to watch the first time first though. Glad to know I'm not a moron for not being able to follow the plot after a certain point.
So you have a somewhat high-pitched, reedy stoner voice and regularly use the term "man" when addressing people? Good to know
Nah, that was the HS classmate. But yeah, he was a mixture of Chong and the Dude.
