A couple of weeks ago (Dec. 4) I met my friend Ben at Winter Garden at the World Financial Center to watch and listen to Robert Fripp do his thing. First of all, I was excited to see Robert Fripp at all, because he’s an amazing musician and guitarist. He is the backbone of the prog rock band that’s been around since 1969, King Crimson. He has also made some amazing music with Brian Eno as “Fripp & Eno.” The latter is closer to the kind of music he makes by himself: Frippertronics. This is the name for a method involving tape loops that he and Eno developed in the seventies to create atmospheric, ambient, beautiful music. At Winter Garden, he created more beautiful music with just his guitar and that hugely tall rack of electronics. I think these days he is calling it simply: Soundscapes. It was wonderful.
Here is a photo of the man himself.No comments
Ok, so, some of you have seem this before. It’s the album cover of “Merriweather Post Pavilion” by Animal Collective. But I saw this on Gorrila Vs. Bear today and I thought it was an animated gif. But it’s not, it’s a jpg. Is it just me or is this image “moving” when you look at it. Believe me, I’m totally sober right now. I’m at work.
If this is not news to you, fine. But it’s news to me. I even have the LP at home.1 comment
This is my most-viewed photo in Flickr as of today, with over 800 views. For some reason people are finding this photo and I can’t really figure out why.No comments
This was one of the most impressive and beguiling parts of Angkor as a whole. The Bayon is the central temple in Angkor Thom. There are 216 giant faces adorning all parts of the temple. Traversing the labyrinthine different levels of the temple itself is disorienting even if there aren’t faces at every turn. This was most definitely a highlight of our trip to Angkor.
This is also to say that I have finally finished uploading all of our photos from our honeymoon. (There are a lot of them!) I still have to title a bunch of them and add descriptions, but they are there for your viewing pleasure.No comments
