I got a list of things to listen to from Susan. Thought I would pass on her suggestions, and maybe she will send me a list of her Desert Island Records. When she does, I’ll post those, too.
Thanks, Susan. I’ve got a lot of these on my iTunes already. The ones I don’t, I’ll give a listen.
I’m Good Now; Let the Light In; Lovely Creatures
The Black Keys:
I’m a Lonely Boy
Still the Night; Go Slow Down
Big Head Todd & The Monsters
I Wouldn’t Do That To You
Let Me Down Easy; Can’t Do a Thing
Kiss This Thing Goodbye; Always the Last to Know
How do you choose what movies to watch? Who’s in it? What it’s about? One of the first things I do is look at who is directing the movie. If any of these guys make a new movie (excepting the ones that are dead, of course), I want to see it. Even the dead guys can get in on the act if it’s one of their films I haven’t seen before. That doesn’t mean the movie is always great, but the way these guys translate ideas into vision appeals to me.

When you’re marooned on a desert island, you can’t be too picky about what washes up on shore. So, instead of a list of specific records, here are ten bands â€“ any albums from any of them will do nicely while I’m stranded. Funny thing is, my final list doesn’t have any new bands. I just couldn’t replace any of these with bands I’ve been introduced to over the past decade or so. Seems the more lists I make the more evident it becomes how stuck in the past I really am.
