Default Re: Random Thoughts

I just went outside (it's 2.15AM) and the Moon was so bright that the sky was not black or very dark blue but distinctly blue. So bright, that a passing airliner was leaving a visible vapour trail that I could see from the moonlight. I've never seen anything like it.

That Fripp reminds me a lot of a slightly more manic (and modern electronic) update of a lot of Ligeti's work. The sequence in '2001: A Space Odyssey' when Dave Bowman is in the star-gate uses Ligeti. A fantastic composer.

I'll probably watch '2001' tomorrow. If I get impatient I might just go and pick it off the shelf in minute...

Might be a little more peaceful than my night-time music of 'Metal Machine Music' last night. I managed to listen to the whole thing, save the last six minutes. Must do better next time.
