I didn't know one of those bands you mentioned. I've never really considered myself a musician, I just banged around on a bunch of drums for a couple of years - like some kind of anger therapy. I'm a lyric's person, I think that's because I write poetry and really know how to appreciate it. Sometimes I think you have to be a musician to really appreciate certain types of music - of course I love music, but to really truly appreciate it. This lady Esma, she has a website but I can't remember her last name. I'll be in contact with my friend sometime this week and ask her again for her last name. She is what I would call a musician's musician, or maybe a poet's poet. Right now she is recording CDs, she thinks her voice will only be good for a few more years.
You know, until I found out about this cyclothymia, I used to think it was because I was half Italian that my senses were so refined (you know Italians and their food, and their design, and their love of beauty)- my dad grew up in Italy during the depression and he was very manic depressive; can you just try to imagine my childhood! Back to our senses; I haven't drank coffee for 3 months because I can't find any that is good enough to drink. I suppose I could make some but there is only one store in this town that sells decent beans.
How I listen to music is the first sign that my moods are going up (although generally I am confident with lithium to control my highs). The volume goes up and I just can't get those notes inside of me fast enough or intensely enough, it's like I become part of the song. I am always happy for and half envious of people who have music. Enjoy it.
I've never heard of this movie Lacho Drum?
