1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, 91-140

1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

It’s time for another update on my music project.  Two summers ago I started using this book as a guide to explore music with my son.  Gage has been a party to some of the journey, but not all.  I try to play at least parts from every album for him, except the explicit ones, and some he likes and some he covers his ears.  He is probably more discerning than I am.  This post is more for me than you because I know that these lists can get boring, but feel free to comment if I’ve listened to a favorite of yours (whether I liked them or not :)).  Happy listening.

This go round I’ve decided to list them in the order I liked them best.

Thriller by Michael Jackson– first and only album I begged my dad for money to buy.  I remember him counting out change from our change bucket.

Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits – love, love, love

Pearl by Janis Joplin – So talented and such a shame she died so young.

Parachutes by Coldplay – loved it

Dare by the Human League – fun 80’s album with a favorite

In Our Heads by Hot Chip – a great new discovery

Make Yourself by Incubus – nu-metal?  surprisingly, I liked it!

Boatman’s Call by Nick Cave – Love this dark and moody album.

Aqualung by Jethro Tull – Liked the whole album.

Murder Ballads by Nick Cave – the dark murder ballads (something I’d never heard) was really cool.

Off the Wall by Michael Jackson – Can’t go wrong with Michael.

Bad by Michael Jackson – a much more polished Michael.

Come Away With Me by Norah Jones – easy listening

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John – I don’t think you can ever go wrong with Elton John.

Rhythm Nation by Janet Jackson – It’ll make you want to dance!

Songs of Love & Hate by Leonard Cohen – Like him better than Dylan.

British Steel by Judas Priest – Not a hard rock girl but I liked this one.

Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane

A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay – didn’t love as much as  the first

Songs of Leonard Cohen by Leonard Cohen – Not my favorite of his.

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly – It was ok, a little dopey.

Morrison Hotel by  The Doors– My third Doors album that I just thought was okay.

Tusk by Fleetwood Mac – Didn’t like as much as Rumours.

Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – My least favorite of the three.

Safe As Milk by Captain Beefheart – Hippy dippy, but the best name ever!

Are We Not Men? We are Devo! by Devo – Too frenetic for me.

Be by Common – not for me.

Cross by Justice – Let’s dance!

Chicago by Chicago Transit Authority – Easy, a little boring.

A Love Supreme by John Coltrane – I like jazz, but really only in person.

What People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not by Arctic Monkeys – eh, nothing special here

Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart – Eek! A double album of music I didn’t like!

Never Mind the Bollocks by the Sex Pistols – Couldn’t really understand them.

Maggot Brain by Funkadelic – Took me a few tries to get this one but it is fun to move to.

Blueprint by Jay-Z – This didn’t elevate rap for me.

Sweetheart of the Rodeo by the Byrds – Too much country for me.

Gris Gris by Dr. John – This is an album? Not much here.

Now I Got Worry by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – too much screaming

The Score by The Fugees – Loved one song. A lot.

Foo Fighters by Foo Fighters – Grunge or grunge-like has never been my thing.

Thankful Quiz – guessing closed

I saw Christmas decorations last weekend and I wasn’t happy about it.  I love Thanksgiving, the quieter holiday that’s all about being thankful for what I have instead of the later, flashier holiday that’s all about what I want.  So, at the library yesterday and picked up books from the New section that had something on the cover that I was thankful for.  So, they’re all relatively new, taken from both fiction and nonfiction.  Give me the title and author if you can.  You’ll also get an extra point if you can tell me what it is on the cover that I’m thankful for :)

Leave your guesses in a comment.  Good luck!  I noticed after I downloaded the picture that I have two 9’s and no 10.  Go figure!

Displacement:A Travelogue by Lucy Knisley

fpoDisplacement. Finished 10-10-15, rating 4.75/5, graphic memoir, 161 pages, pub. 2015

In her graphic memoirs, New York Times-best selling cartoonist Lucy Knisley paints a warts-and-all portrait of contemporary, twentysomething womanhood, like writer Lena Dunham (Girls). In the next installment of her graphic travelogue series, Displacement, Knisley volunteers to watch over her ailing grandparents on a cruise. (The book s watercolors evoke the ocean that surrounds them.) In a book that is part graphic memoir, part travelogue, and part family history, Knisley not only tries to connect with her grandparents, but to reconcile their younger and older selves. She is aided in her quest by her grandfather s WWII memoir, which is excerpted. Readers will identify with Knisley s frustration, her fears, her compassion, and her attempts to come to terms with mortality, as she copes with the stress of travel complicated by her grandparents frailty.  from Goodreads

I wasn’t sure I wanted to read another Knisley book since I wasn’t a fan of her highly lauded French Milk, but when I started to see some of the reviews I decided to give her another shot.  I’m so glad I did because this was a great graphic memoir of Knisley, 27, volunteering to go with her grandparents, 91 & 93, on a Caribbean cruise.  What could have been all fluff and jokes turned out to be a very real and mature look at aging and what we do for the people we love when they reach this point in their lives.

The grands, married 67 years, signed up for a cruise through their community home and their children were worried because they needed so much help.  Knisley decided to volunteer herself as their aide and in return received a lot of admiration and a free cruise.  She took along her Grandfather’s war memoir and we were able to experience, along with Knisley, her grandfather as a young soldier at the same time as we were seeing him as an elderly man who can’t control much of what goes on.  Knisley signs on without realizing how difficult and exhausting it would be to take care and keep track of them but she does her best and she does it with love.  I’m a sucker for grandparents and seeing her love for her grandparents shine through the pages gave me new insight into the author. 

Growing old is no joke and much of the book was sad and sometimes difficult to read, but Knisley’s great illustrations and light touch with the storytelling made this one hard to put down.  I pretty much loved everything about it.  Even with the heavy reality of aging it managed to convey the love of family and this made it a very satisfying read.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

fpoAnd Then There Were None. Finished 10-14-15, rating 5/5, mystery, pub. 1939

Unabridged Playaway read by Dan Stevens. 6 Hours.

First, there were ten – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.   from Goodreads

“Ten little Indian boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine little Indian boys sat up very late; One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight little Indian boys travelling in Devon; One said he’d stay there and then there were seven.
Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
Six little Indian boys playing with a hive; A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five little Indian boys going in for law; One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four little Indian boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three little Indian boys walking in the Zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun; One got frizzled up and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.”

Eight strangers and a married couple on a deserted, cut-off island don’t even have time to get to know each other before they start to die one by one in creative ways similar to the rhyme.  It’s a slight book so at first ten seems like a lot of characters to tell apart, but since the numbers start to dwindle early on it isn’t much of  problem to know who’s who.  Just when you have a suspect in mind, it becomes an impossibility due to death or alibi and that’s what makes this a fabulous read.  There is a reason that this is the bestselling mystery of all time and not to be missed.  I don’t want to reveal too much because I do think that it’s best to go in with only that information so you can see how it all sorts itself out.

I think any lover of mysteries, Christie or the board game Clue should read this if they haven’t already.

I read this for my Classics Club Challenge.  My goal is to read these 50 classics by January 1020.  This is number six :)  Which one should I read next?

Mailbox Monday – October 26

mmb-300x282Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

It’s been a month? since I posted he books that came into my house. Ugh! Since Gage started school it seems I have had less time for blogging but I’m hoping that turns around.  October, our month of celebrations, is winding down and I’m thankful.  I’m also thankful for all of these goodies that arrived.


Texas Tango by Cynthia D’Alba and the cowboy wind chime arrived from the author after a win at Writerpsace.com

Dr. Caroline Graham is happy with her nomadic lifestyle fulfilling short-term medical contracts. No emotional commitments, no disappointments. She’s always the one to walk away, never the one left behind.

Travis Montgomery has one dream left—to build the ranch he and his wife planned before he lost her to cancer. There’s just one thing standing between him and the last bit of acreage he needs—a last living heir who has one traveling foot out the door…and an unusual request that challenges his determination to never again place his heart at risk.
Warning: This book contains a tortured widower who doesn’t want a wife and an independent doctor who doesn’t want a husband. Hot stuff between the sheets and failed efforts to avoid emotional involvements.  

You by Caroline Kepnes (audio) arrived from the sweet and generous Kathy :)

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson arrived from the lovely and generous Care :)

Winesburg, Ohio (1919) is Sherwood Anderson’s masterpiece, a cycle of short stories concerning life in a small town at the end of the nineteenth century. At the center is George Willard, a young reporter who becomes the confidant of the town’s solitary figures. Anderson’s stories influenced countless American writers including Hemingway, Faulkner, Updike, Oates and Carver. This new edition corrects errors made in earlier editions and takes into account major criticism and textual scholarship of the last several decades.

Monsterland by Michael Phillip Cash arrived from Red Feather Productions

Welcome to Monsterland – the scariest place on Earth. All guests can interact with real vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by an actual werewolf on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.
Wyatt Baldwin, a high school student and life-long movie buff is staring bleakly at a future of flipping burgers. Due to a fortuitous circumstance, Wyatt and his friends are invited to the star-studded opening of Monsterland. In a theme park full of real vampires, werewolves and zombies, what could possibly go wrong?

The Hollow Ground by Natalie S Harnett was a birthday gift from my mom.

The underground mine fires ravaging Pennsylvania coal country have forced Brigid Howley and her family to seek refuge with her estranged grandparents, the formidable Gram and the Black Lung stricken Gramp. Tragedy is no stranger to the Howleys, a proud Irish-American clan who takes strange pleasure in the “curse” laid upon them generations earlier by a priest who ran afoul of the Molly Maguires. The weight of this legacy rests heavily on a new generation, when Brigid, already struggling to keep her family together, makes a grisly discovery in a long-abandoned bootleg mine shaft. In the aftermath, decades’ old secrets threaten to prove just as dangerous to the Howleys as the burning, hollow ground beneath their feet. Inspired by real-life events in now-infamous Centralia and the equally devastated town of Carbondale, The Hollow Ground is an extraordinary debut with an atmospheric, voice-driven narrative and an indelible sense of place.

Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty by Diane Keaton came from my mom too.

Diane Keaton has spent a lifetime coloring outside the lines of the conventional notion of beauty. In Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty, she shares the wisdom she’s accumulated through the years as a mother, daughter, actress, artist, and international style icon. This is a book only Diane Keaton could write—a smart and funny chronicle of the ups and downs of living and working in a world obsessed with beauty.
In her one-of-a-kind voice, Keaton offers up a message of empowerment for anyone who’s ever dreamed of kicking back against the “should”s and “supposed to”s that undermine our pursuit of beauty in all its forms. From a mortifying encounter with a makeup artist who tells her she needs to get her eyes fixed to an awkward excursion to Victoria’s Secret with her teenage daughter, Keaton shares funny and not-so-funny moments from her life in and out of the public eye.

Gage turns 5 today!

I cannot believe my little man is 5 years old today.  He is funny, smart, loving, goofy, social, curious, and opinionated. He continues to surprise me with his progress. I spend a lot of (way too much) time worrying about the important day-to-day struggles but today I just sit and appreciate him and how far he’s come.  We had his (crazy) birthday party yesterday at the nature center where he went to camp and he had a blast.  I like parties and I like to invite all of Gage’s friends because I want anyone who wants to help him celebrate to come. We had 21 kids (and 2 newborns) plus parents.  It was chaos :)  The naturalist spent and hour with he kids, taking them on a walk outside to dig in the dirt for things to feed the center’s turtle and they were able to pet a snake.  It was when they came back in for the cake  that things got silly.  We started singing Happy Birthday and I realized I had only put 4 candles on the cake!!  I had to stop everyone and add one, jeesh!  So we sang again and a friend next to Gage blew out the candles.  Tears came and we relit the candles and sang AGAIN!  But he was upset and despite lots of moist blows could not get that 5th candle blown out (more tears).  But after that things went back to normal until the last few of his friends left and then he was sad :(  My guy does not mind a crazy party!

Here he is through the years….




4th birthday4!




And his birth story is here :)

The Blind Side by Michael Lewis

fpoThe Blind Side. Finished 10-6-15, rating 4.25/5, sports, 320 pages, pub. 2006

Unabridged audio read by Stephen Hoye. 11 hours, 47 minutes.

When we first meet Michael Oher is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or how to read or write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, Evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces alter Oher: the family’s love and the evolution of professional football itself into a game in which the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback’s greatest vulnerability: his blind side.    from Goodreads

I loved this book, even the very footbally parts.  Many people have seen the movie that won a Best Actress Award for Sandra Bullock and are familiar with the rags to riches story of NFL player Michael Oher.  His upbringing was heartbreaking, but good fortune finally showed him some love by getting him off the rough Memphis streets and into a private Christian school in his teens and having the privileged Tuohy family adopt him as one of their own.  His transformation was inspiring and proved so many things about race and wealth and the importance of a loving family.

The Tuohy’s seemed too good to be true in this book (and that fact that the author and Sean Tuohy are old friends should be taken into account).  What they did was the epitome of charity, not just giving money, but charity of the heart.  They saw Michael had a need, housing and someone to look after him, and they stepped in, arms wide open.  When this large black man joined their Southern white Christian Republican family others may have had reservations, but the Tuohy’s paid no attention.  The miracles they were able to make happen for Michael showed great love.

At its heart it is a football book and alternating with Michael’s story is the history of the left offensive tackle position, the very one  that Michael would be called to play because of his size and athletic ability.  It all started in the 1980’s with Lawrence Taylor and Lewis managed to make even these somewhat dry passages come alive with humor.  It deftly explains why the position became so important and allowed Michael the privilege of becoming so sought after, essentially every college in the country making visits and calls to get him to their campus.

I did have my reservations about the way Michael was portrayed.  So many stories about his lack of understanding of basic things, while highlighting the economic divide also repeatedly painted him in an unflattering light.  He is still playing in the NFL and has recently talked about this in an interview.

“People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie. They don’t really see the skills and the kind of player I am.  This stuff, calling me a bust, people saying if I can play or not … that has nothing to do with football. It’s something else off the field. That’s why I don’t like that movie.”

As much as Michael may not like it, the glaring light shone on privilege, be it the privilege of race or money, is an important one.  The inner city public schools were, at best, negligent and the city not much better.  The story of Michael Oher shows one of the few that made it, his last NFL contract paying him $7M over two years.  And the story of the Tuohys show that with a charitable heart the world can change, one kid at a time.

This is a football book, but Michael’s story will appeal to anyone.  If you don’t like football, you can just skip those parts :)
