Make the Effort, Love the Effort

    All the raving and positive reviews for Kimbra’s, “The Golden Echo”, and I…I just don’t like it.

    There are some stand out tracks, but there are a lot of cringe-worthy ones as well. And I was listening to myself, repeatedly I kept thinking, “I just wanna hear her voice.” I mean what is with all the manipulations and sounds and the whole kitchen sink? Kimbra can SING her ASS off! And I get the references, I get she wanted to narrow her list of genre’s to focus on but it just feels and sounds…

    Ugh.

    Disappointed that I’m kind of disappointed. Will wait til the cd comes and relisten a few times before doing a full album review.

    Maybe it’ll get better with a few more listens.

    p.s. — There are no other 90s Music’s on the album, but damn if there’s not 3-4 that are just as strange as it. There’s definitely elements of it in other songs (mainly the same vocal layering style… or whatever you call it. I’m not fond of it, because the lead vocal gets lost in it)

    p.p.s. — I wasn’t even gonna buy the album so soon, but Teen Heat swept me up and Goldmine made me feel optimistic. Sigh……

    I was playing the wii and turned my stereo to cd and listened to 3/4 immi soundtracks in a row.

    Speak and Ellipse both came from amazon and skip horrendously through Headlock, 2-1 and Aha. Was annoyed, but overall it was nice. Haven’t listened in awhile. I really need imeg.

    My response to people who are ignorant enough to think that language doesn’t change, and that eventually “ableism” “classism” and other similar words won’t eventually be part of a recognized lexicon. 

    As a point of order, though: “elbow” already existed as a noun. What Shakespeare did was use it as a verb, as in “to elbow someone aside”.

    Which is still important, because this is part of how language grows: we recognize the usefulness of an existing word in serving a different function. This is how “fun” became an adjective, after “funny” (the adjective form of “fun”) grew to mean something else.

    I know this because the last time this came around, I wondered what the context for Elizabethan England was where people would recognize “elbow” as meaning “the bendy bit of the arm” and decided to look it up.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

desperately trying to hold my tears and laughter back at this public venue. I don’t know why this amuses me so.
