Someone recently asked me what was the last CD I bought. I answered the new Caribou CD 'Our Love'. I will list the CD's I have recently added to my music library (my wife and I have different musical taste-she does like the new Lucinda Williams CD 'Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone' and also the new J Mascis CD 'Tied To A Star'.

J Mascis 'Tired To A Star'

Lucinda Williams 'Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone'

Ty Segall 'Manipulator'

Blonde Redhead self-titled

Blonde Redhead 'Barragan'

Electric Wizard 'Time to Die'

Oranssi Pazuzu 'Valonielu

Thee Oh Sees 'Drop'

Ryan Adams self-titled

Earth 'Primitive and Deadly'

Aphex Twin 'Syro'

I do not listen to music in the mornings usually. I prefer silence most of the time, so I often ask myself why I buy so much music? Am I wasting money by buying CD's I hardly listen to. My wife has in her car a CD player so when I drive her car I often will play something loud like Earth or Electric Wizard. When Carol is driving I will play something not loud like Ryan Adams or Sun Kil Moon.

Today at the library I was talking to the lady who comes after me to volunteer at the Herrick Public Library used books store. The subject of music came up and she said with a straight face that she believe rock no roll music was demonic because the drum beats. This lady professes to be a Christian and what I find interesting is that she does not object to guitars and drums being used during a Christian worship service. What makes one drum beat Christian and another drum beat demonic? The woman said she did liked the music of The Animals which I found amusing since this band was from the 1960's. I wonder what this lady would think if she heard the music/lyrics of Electric Wizard?

I personally find music interesting. I do not agreed with the remark made by the Christian lady at the book nook that rock n roll music effects the brain. Weird.

I know some of the music I listen to some Christians might find repulsive or ugly. I like music-all kinds of music-I like sometimes noise. But I never approach music without using discernment-with my intellect governed by Truth/beauty.

I love silence. I like empty spaces.

Well, I will close to drift into the night. I remember these words of the apostle Paul (New Testament), "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Phil. 4:8.
