Til' The Dust Is Gone by Art Of Anarchy has been stuck in my head lately.

ABBA - "Don't Shut Me Down".

It's unbelievably nice to hear these guys doing their thing once more. ABBA Gold was the soundtrack to my first encounters of Commander Keen all those years ago.

Since today was the 20th anniversary of 9/11, I was listening to the Buckethead song 911 that closes out the album Bermuda Triangle. It's a somber tribute that was written and recorded the day it happened, because as Buckethead put it:

"If the world is going to blow up, I may as well go out soloing."

Have been getting big into Orbital again lately, and last night stumbled on Shamen (they're a bit before my time so never heard their music while growing up).

Was listening to Orbital's You Lot from the blue album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WjY8rbuSeU) for the first time the other week. Heard the sample about science in the middle and thought "this sounds like Christopher Eccleston as Doctor Who, but it's from 2004!" Turns out I wasn't far off! From Wikipedia: "'You Lot' samples a speech by Christopher Eccleston from Russell T Davies' The Second Coming." Davies would, of course, go on to reboot Doctor Who with Eccleston within a few years of the show and song being released.

Suffocation, it is a playlist I made up on my iPod of most of, if not all of their songs.

Lately I've been listening to Buckethead's 31 Days 'Til Halloween series. Back in October 2015, Buckethead released 1 album a day for a month counting down to Halloween, and they're a collection of dark, ambient albums that would sound perfect in a haunted house. To be honest, I think they get kind of generic at times, and there's some that I have a really hard time sitting through, but there's still some gems in them, and it's like having an advent calendar for Halloween.

EDIT: I've been listening to some of these while reading H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories or working on Halloween artwork, and they actually work well to enhance the atmosphere.

The calm, steady rain outside my open window. The droplets gently pat the tree leaves before running off -- presumably in shifting streams -- to land on other things. Occasionally hitting a bucket or pipe, making a metallic sound. Or perhaps a forming puddle, making a tiny inkling of a splash. Every so often, a car revs its engine in the distance.

Slash- The River is Rising, a new single that just dropped a few hours ago. It sounds pretty good. Lyrically it's about how humans can be brainwashed or indoctrinated by dangerous ideas. It's got me even more excited for his new album coming out in February next year! Hoping I can see him live again next year, too!

I hear 'ya, I enjoy the sound of rainfall too. This time of year especially, when the leaves start to fall off the trees, the sky turns grey, and the temperature drops, there's just something calming about being nice and warm indoors and listening to the rain fall outside. Something about it just feels good when you first wake up and you can hear the rain falling outside your window, knowing you're nice and warm under the covers. For me that particular feeling is enhanced when you're lying in bed with a hot drink and a good book while you listen to it, perhaps even some nice piano music to accompany it.

I haven't paid much attention to Slash since Guns 'N Roses back in the day.
