Ash Wednesday

February 17, 2010 at 10:04 pm (coincidence, friends, mood, poetry, T. S. Eliot, too many tags)

Since it’s Ash Wednesday I thought I’d post some clips of T. S. Eliot reading one of his more depressing poems. Guess what it’s called.

Part One:

Part Two:

It seemed appropriate to post since a good friend of mine doesn’t particularly feel like striving to do anything today.

I suppose it’s time to get back on the wagon. The Mogwai post will be coming on a Monday in the near future folks. You can decide whether it’s mellifluent or not.

Anyway. For those of you who are missing a certain someone and can’t wait a week or so to hear the dulcet tones of his voice, I’d suggest watching a few of these Let’s Play videos by one Deceased Crab:

Besides being entertaining all on his own, Mr. Crab sounds much like my good friend Jon. It wasn’t until the gentleman mentioned there was a feline in his presence that I was certain that this wasn’t who I had suspected was behind the numerous humorous clips.

For those of you who don’t know, Let’s Play is where one vicariously experiences a video game, be it via console or PC, through the recordings of another player. Some are good, most are not. In my opinion Deceased Crab is one of the best LPers around. I can’t help but think though that the similarity of his voice, humor and wit to a friend I haven’t seen in nearly two years has a lot to do with my assessment.

Seeing as how imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I thought I’d go ahead and make a a series of posts about music after the Sunday Night Serenades of Greg, my internet acquaintance over at A Chronicle of Fables. This series of mine won’t just focus on music I particularly enjoy, though that may often be the case, but also on the strange and unique.
