“What Is House Music?”

Nearly 30 pages away from being done with James Baldwin’s Go Tell It on the Mountain. Such an amazing novel.

Bought some really neat books and records today:

Appointment in Samarra – John O’Hara

The Wretched of the Earth – Frantz Fanon

The Second Sex – Simone de Beauvoir

Palace Walk (Part I of the Cairo Trilogy) – Naguib Mahfouz

Everything All the Time – Band of Horses

L.A. Woman – The Doors

Modern Times – Bob Dylan

Incredible Jazz Guitar – Wes Montgomery

One of my co-workers, who also happens to be a DJ, gave me a CD today of various house music songs on it. He wrote “What is House Music?” on it in black marker, thereby preempting me from asking him that question. “It’s really spiritual stuff, man. Don’t listen to it right away. Listen to it when you know that the time is right. When everything in your life is in harmony with the world’s essence, man.” Despite of my severe distrust for such language, something tells me that this is going to be really interesting…

Currently listening to: Band of Horses – Everything All the Time
