Ten CDs I Love #2--October Project

I think Kat has stopped doing Music Monday carnival style, and since I have that 10 CDs I Love series you are all eagerly awaiting more posts in, I decided to steal Euphrony's idea and just do Music Monday anyway. Besides, I about had a heart attack when I realized just how many book posts are due this week, so I figured we could break it up a little with some music. And who knows. Maybe I'll even blog what I thought about Prince Caspian, Juno, or National Treasure 2 all movies I've watched recently. I could even throw in a few more posts groaning about the price of gas. And of course we could chat about whether or not M. Night Shyamalan's newest movie will get him back in the good graces of movie goers everywhere. There's just so much to talk about!!!

Anyway, I owe my love for this next group to my friend Flora. Who I always called Michelle, but then she changed her name on me. Anyway, she gave me this cassette tape (yes, a cassette tape!) and I fell in love! I had to upgrade to CD and also get their other CD. Of course sometime after that, it all fell apart and they are no more. But I think they still have a very devoted following. Mary Fahl also released a solo CD which is very good but that was in 2003. So I have no idea what's up with her now. In any case, these songs make me want to sit down and write for hours, which is the same effect they had on me in high school. I still have the piles of tortured poetry to prove it. I still love listening to them. They have stood the test of time.

I'm frustrated that my favorite songs aren't available so I'm posting this sampler video. I would love love love to know if any of the rest of you out there liked/like October Project because I have never ever met someone else who did! :)

Read the first post in this series here.

Sorry, I've never heard of them. But I am eager to hear your opinions on the movies. Feel free to gripe about gas prices-nobody would blame you.

Never heard their music, either. And I'll have to wait till I get home tonight to see the clips (work blocks just about everything music and video related).

About ol' M. Night - what do you think of their advertising tactic of labeling this as "M. Night Shyamalan's first R-rated movie"? If you've not seen it, they say it in the previews (literally, the voice-over guy says that exactly). They are obviously trying to make a point by such emphasis.

Euphrony...I hadn't noticed that. I guess they're trying to say it's not going to be another Lady...ha.

In any case, I think it's definitely much more violent.

One of your all-time faves? Wow! Hey, I really had no idea! I found the original tape last year when I was moving and was like, oh yeah, that was really good wasn't it?

Cool to see it here!
