Kinda blah about livejournal these days. I pop on periodically to read blog posts, but most people seem to have taken it to facebook, as have I. I'll probably still read, but rarely post.

Tonight I was listening to the podcast of NPR's All Songs Considered, a guest DJ set from a few weeks back with producer Tucker Martine. It's really odd- he played "Some Velvet Morning", which is a song by Lee Hazlewood sung with Nancy Sinatra, but I never knew that was the original. I am very familiar with a cover version that I don't own, but used to hear a lot. I can't remember where and I can't remember when and I don't know who by....it's one of those things where you're hearing a song you've never heard before, then suddenly realize that you know the words that are coming next. That unsettling moment when you realize that, odds are, the song you really liked and knew is a cover song.

Very interesting to hear that song and then think about the fact that the guy who picked it to play is the producer of The Decemberists' "Hazards of Love," album. Makes some of the mixing choices on duet tracks very clear, all of a sudden.

Okay, back to your regularly scheduled radio silence.

I had never heard that song before, but something about it just hit me. I went and downloaded a nancy sinatra greatest hits, which i'd been meaning to do anyway. i wonder if i'd heard the cover version somewhere in the past and that's why it struck me? i find it interesting that you chose to write about that song when it's been on my mind so much lately. actually, i was thinking of making you a mix with that on it. so there :)

that entire show really made me understand "Hazards of Love" in a different way, actually.

not for nothin', but the version you're probably most used to hearing is either slowdive or primal scream. :)

Yeah, it's pretty sad... Facebook has got to be my least favorite social networking site of all, and it is en-saddening that people seem to be flocking to it. (I do not want to blog about stuff under my real name, and I definitely I do not want to hear from anyone I went to high school with that I'm not still in contact with on purpose.)

Mostly I haven't been LJing much since I've been not very inspired, and very busy.
