Re: What do you think about when you are riding?

Some times I ride to ease my mind, others to cease it. I have ridden across the country in order to ‘clear’ it of the clutter and onslaught that I bring down upon myself. I find the repetition of movement eases me and helps me ‘think’. I have often made important decisions on the bike (others walkin...

Currently trying to workout how to obtain a playable copy Sanación by Maria José Llergo.

The emphasis is on playable. 12” doesn’t fit in my cd or computer/iPod... cd or mp3 is what I was searching for. Ended up on YouTube instead... :roll:

Re: What are you listening to now?

Despite my moniker (which is actually derived from a Cat Power song) I have a tendency to vier towards the minimalist. Arvo Pärt gets a fair listen (Kanon Pokajanen, Symphony No 4 and Tabala Rasa currently). Bang on a Can’s rendition of Reich’s 4 organs & maracas must be due for a dust off pretty so...
