A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

@Neil I feel the same way, it's like robots took over and they thought no one would notice. If it was used only now and then I could appreciate it more as another musical tool (I'm a fan monotone robot-voice), but it's not a substitute for a genuinely tuneful voice.

@melinda That's pretty much my take. Dismissing it outright feels like shunning synthesizers or drum machines, but the fact that A&R types don't need to take musical talent into account when finding new singers is dispiriting.

@LindaLee I am loving life even extra these days. This month we adopted a rescue pup whose foster is a great friend, and then I married my partner of 15 years. I knew the pup would make me smile as never before, but being so tickled from a piece of paper and a ring was serendipitous.

Reading poetry, too, lately: Frederick Seidel, William Alabaster (devotional stuff by a 16th century Protestant-turned-Catholic-times-two), William Carlos Williams. Must return to Emily Dickinson, John Ashbery, many others. Did folks see the story in the NYT by Ilya Kaminsky about his return to Odessa, where he'd grown up deaf? Around 2005 I met him at a gate at Oakland Int'l Airport. He had just published his first book of poetry, Dancing in Odessa. We flew together and talked Shakespeare (whose work he knew very well in English), poetry, studying law. He is a marvelous poet.

My co-worker's father is going to give me 70 CDs of 60s and 70s music because he digitized it all twice so he has a backup. I refused politely a couple times then said ok. Hope there are some cool gems in there for me and my wife!
