I was watching a movie (This one if you're interested) this morning about a banjo player who travels to Africa to explore the instrument's roots and play with local musicians.

Meanwhile, in the next room, my wife was playing Farmville on facebook. She always keeps the volume turned up, don't ask me why.

Let me tell you: the sounds of bleating sheep and goats, elephants and horses, ducks and etc. calling their amplified calls mixes weirdly with banjo music accompanying tribal, guttural singing, instruments, and rhythms.

It was an odd morning. Odd-sounding at the very least.

We'll just call you Charles Ives, then.

You should make a 'sound mix' of those in the form of that "Dueling Banjos", with their varying 'animal noises' for this! cool

He comes off a little...odd in the film. On the plus side, he doesn't do a whole lot of talking. Incredibly talented at the banjo, though.

One of the African superstars implies that he may be socially inept, which I found kind of funny in a backhanded-compliment kind of way.




For an encore, this evening I watched:
Down from the Mountain: The O Brother, Where Art Thou? concert film...



I think I may be done with old-timey / bluegrass music for a couple of days.

Listen to a band called Crooked Still before you cash out.

Nice take on an old sound.

well, there's a "tie-in" if someone were also to 'due' yet another with: "C'mon down off'n 'Broke-back Mountin'!"
Maybe that's: "2 soon & 2 many 'hard-ons'!" 4 some folks eh? whistle
