C.V. FOR TODAY
Here are my answers to these Curriculum Vitae questions. Please feel free to use the same questions and return your responses to me.
What was the last record / CD you obtained?
If you could recommend a record / CD (of music) to someone and have that person actually listen to it, what would it be?
Lately, I have been recommending Aksak Maboul / Marc Hollander “Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine” (1977) to people. I never tire of that album.
Do you think record stores will all close and people will only be able to purchase music (LP’s/CD’s) on-line eventually?
Certainly starting to look that way! More
Do you ever copy music for yourself or your friends? What format(s) do you use?
Yes, I do sometimes generate a ‘CD on demand’ for my friends. I have one friend who will text me and ask, “Do you have any Scott Walker?” (Answer: No) – but sometimes he will hit the jackpot and ask for Nick Drake – the next time I saw him, I was able to fit all three original ND albums onto 2 CD’s. Mostly CD-R’s at this time.
Do you watch TV very much anymore? If not, why?
Almost nothing since the switch to digital. We watched “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” for a while…but the musical guests were better on Jimmy Kimmel and even the Carson Daly show. Also liked “I Survived a Japanese Game Show”.
What’s for lunch?
Today, I might have one of those Indian rice bowls from Fresh ‘n’ Easy. Had a “Mango Chicken” rice bowl last night, which was pretty good.
Seen any good films lately?
No, not really. I think the last film I went to was “Slumdog Millionaire”, which was OK.
Any plans to leave your home anytime soon?
What other question(s) would you like to know the answer(s) to?
How much longer will I be able to buy new / used CD’s in brick-and-mortar stores?
