I had my first jazz clarinet lesson last night. I have to practice swinging 8th notes because right now when I do it they just sound like quarter notes. I've also been instructed to listen to thelonious monk. any tips on how to be jazzier?

Beret or fedora, clove cigarettes, sunglasses at night.  But more seriously, and perhaps insultingly obvious, is that you should just listen to lots and lots of jazz.  Which shouldn't be much of a burden because it's some of the best music ever.  And learning to play jazz clarinet is a really fucking cool thing to do.

That is indeed an awesome thing to do.

Start counting swung eighths all over the place.  Like when you walk, count the swung eighth in between each step.

I forgot to listen to jazz today instead listened to a lot of gary numan/wire/omd/laurie anderson/the mcgarigle sisters maybe I am not cut out for this.

I have a jelly roll morton and a coleman hawkins album. them next I promise. and my "teacher" (I put quotes because he is really just my friend who is sort of a percussion major and knows some stuff about jazz and wanted to teach it to me) is supposed to make me a mix on grooveshark.

Though to be fair, that is some of the least swung music of modern times.

I just finished indexing my physical recordings. I have 2384 albums, including records, CDs, and a couple of tapes, and also counting maybe 50 or so 45s as "albums" for spreadsheet purposes. But not counting any of my digital-only albums, of which there are more than a few.

Seems like a lot.

A friend of mine back in SA had a database of his collection, so he could sort by artist, year, genre, etc. He gave it a web front-end so that he could look it up wherever he was.

I do have an excel sheet with all my CDs and records as well - I made it when I was a teenager, and after that, it was pretty easy to just keep it updated, so I figured I might as well, even though I wasn't really sure why I'd done it in the first place. Now that I live far away from where a substantial number of my CDs are stored, and that my memory is deteriorating, I'm finding it a rather useful resource for when I'm wondering which albums by a particular band I actually own.

I use rateyourmusic.com, but y'all knew that already.

Before that I used the much simpler (and inferior) recordnerd.com, which I don't think exists any more.

Yeah, it's just on a Google spreadsheet.

I'm not really sure why I did it, either.

So um you guys seen this Aeroplane mashup thing?

AVClub-Someone mashed up In The Aeroplane Over The Sea with hip-hop songs and it's amazing.

I don't know that I agree about the amazing part but it is certainly a thing.

Nick we are as close to agreeing on something musical as I think we've ever been. "Fucking terrible" was what I was thinking but "a travesty" is certainly within range.

Hold me.
