I listen to an album I never knew existed until 3 years ago. 3 years ago, a friend I made in 1997 mailed me a Birthday present of John Cale's 'Paris 1919'. I didn't know Cale's solo stuff had ever been this accessible. It quickly became a favorite album. I have no idea how I missed this album up to this point. Especially when William Gibson makes reference to it all over the place (Antarctica Starts Here, the name of the documentary on the Tessier-Ashpools in Mona Lisa Overdrive, is the title of a song off this album). 'Hanky Panky Nohow' is covered by The Hope Blister (the band that sorta replaced This Mortal Coil on 4AD). 'A Child's Christmas In Wales' was my favorite Christmas song when I was seven.

The person who gifted me with a copy of Paris 1919 is sorta out of touch at this point. He has an old friend from highschool or college who lives in the area-- namely, the handfasting partner of one of my coworkers.

There are only three people in the world, and only five artistic references. You knew this, right?
  • 'Graham Greene', John Cale

    Speaking of which:

    Rose Darko: Do you even know who Graham Greene is?
    Kitty Farmer: I think we've all seen Bonanza

    -from Donnie Darko, which I quoted elsewhere earlier today.
  • Intense! I have to get my hands on some solo Cale!
