I live with a sommelier of music. I hear it all; from the “Dead Kennedy’s to Lana Del Ray. I have always loved music but never immersed myself into it. Kip has… As we sit down at our candlelit dinner with a turnstile full of just purchased CD’s from spun.com. I have no idea as to what we are going to experience. But: as we go through piles of CD’s that the majority we will never hear again; we/he find “gems”. Every so often he comes to me with something that he knows I will want to absorb; and I do mean want to absorb; playing over and over again. It drives him to distraction. He introduced to me a CD that I want to pass forward. it strikes a chord with both of us. We are not necessarily lyrically directed. This woman just has an unbelievable beautiful delivery… Their piece: “Strong” is a must listen.
So tonight as I sit here writing this, I hear the turnstile being filled with our selection for this evening’s dinner. Here we go… together; out there. Today he replaced four sets of speakers throughout the house that have been blown. We “really” do enjoy our music.
