09:55 am - Mellow like Sabbath
One of my coworkers likes to lend out his music. He's not really a huge music aficionado, he just thinks that everyone else's poor taste is music is worse than his own poor taste in music.

Anyway, whenever he tries to give me something to listen to, the first words out of his mouth are "Hey Colin, I know you like more mellow stuff..."

In the past, "mellow" has referred to Sevendust, Drain STH, Tool, and Kittie. Those of you familiar with, say, Kittie, will assume that he's kidding when he calls it mellow, but trust me: he's not. These bands are mellow compared to the music to which he most likes to listen, and really, these are the especial exceptions. He's also loaned me plenty Green Day and OKGo and The Scissor Sisters, which also can't be described as "mellow," but they're certainly, y'know, listenable.

Today's mellow album is Voodoo-U by Lords of Acid. I already own this album, but he pouts when I tell him I'm already familiar with his music (he also becomes depressed when you remind him that OKGo used to open for They Might Be Giants), so I've learned just to take it, listen to it if it's any good, and then return it to him at the end of the day.

In the mean time, I'm listening to house music.

I think that's the one he loaned me, actually. I remember Kittie from about five years ago when my sister loved them, but I never got into the music.

Heh. I think I knew that guy-- or some variant of him.

Interestingly, he looks and dresses more like a country music fan. I used to feel embarrased and judgemental for thinking that, but I've heard other people say it (which excuses everything).

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Yeah, but when you loan me music, it's either something you think I'll like (New Order, Sisters of Mercy), or we both know it's something I probably won't like (some of the metal). And I give it a try because every once in awhile you come up with an exception that I end up liking. This coworker has never given me anything good that I didn't already know about.

I guess that's true-- you thought that Dimmu Borgir was kind of interesting.

There are plenty of others, too, though. I just haven't really been into Priest or Halford's work.

Wait, since when is Lords of Acid "mellow" music? I think of Pink Floyd when I think mellow...not techno. Still...everyone relaxes to something different I suppose.

I think what he means (he doesn't phrase it this way) is that it's on the more mellow end of his collection. But yeah, Lords of Acid? I can't imagine anyone seriously calling them mellow. Pink Floyd? In my experience, Floyd is all over the mood map, but there's enough mellow in their body of work for me to relax to them.

I wonder what this guy would think of, say, Enya.

Damn it, did I miss your birthday?

Um... Happy Birthday.

So I have been thinking who do I know that dresses like a country music fan and I just am not coming up with it. Name names damn it.

-Hez :O)
Mellow like Sabbath - Garmonbozia for the soul.
