02/23/2004: "invisible jukebox."

A new Original Soundtrack series: Invisible Jukebox with my houseguests!

I have friends who come to stay with me every couple of weeks. Even though I have a small apartment, I like having houseguests, because it feels like the old times when I lived in a big communal house again. Sometimes I think that I should just quit this clichéd struggling-writer-in-NYC-shtick and go for the cliché of getting a job at a bed-and-breakfast joint in Cape Cod or something, and just hang out on the shore making challah french toast for people all day.

Unlike the majority of my pals here in the city, my houseguests are usually not music critics, or writers, or even into music that much, at all, so playing music for them is an entirely different experience. This weekend -- old friend, ex-raver and chemist B.!

V/A: Kompakt Total 3

B: (after a few tracks) I like this! / G: You gotta come with me to this Kompakt night in Brooklyn. / B: So this is German? It's funky! / G: Dude, Germans are totally funky! Kraftwerk! / B: Ha! Kraftwerk? / G: (adopts cod-German accent) Ja the Germans are so funky (puts in 'Trans-Europe Express') / B: (cracks up)

(Total 3 winds down, track is 'So Weit Wie Nach Nie')

B: What is this? Is this French? / G: No, it's German. Still. / B: Italian? / G: Naw dude, it's German. I swear.

Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out

B: Is this Supergrass? / G: Ha, guess again! / B: Pulp? / G: Nope, it's a new band called Franz Ferdinand. I have to review their record. / B: That's a dumb name. / G: Yeah. According to the NME, they'll "change your life!" (cough) This is their big hit right now in the UK. / B: Weird, now they sound like The Strokes. / G: Yup. Kinda sad, innit? / B: Yeah, this is boring.

Liars - Broken Witch

B: (wrinkles nose) / G: I'm reviewing this one, too. / B: This is kind of funny. / G: Yeah, it is. / B: Ecch.

the next day...

G. puts in Schaffelfieber 2 while she makes breakfast

G: Scrambled eggs? Toast? / B: Word. / G: I really like the beat they use on these songs. The shuffle. Slave to the schaffel! / B: (bobs head) Yeah, I like this. This is cool. Is this from Germany, too? / G: Yup. / B: Those crazy Germans.

Dizzee Rascal - I Luv U

(woman's voice comes in) / B: (scrunches face) / G: Yeah, this is from London. / (Dizzee's voice comes in) / B: This is weird. (makes face) I don't like it. I don't really like hip-hop, though. / G: Well, it's like, there's this thing they're calling grime... / B: (looks bored)

Air - Alpha Beta Gaga

B: I like this. Is this Air? / G: It's off the new Air album. / B: Yeah, I like Air. This is good. I kind of like their weirder stuff actually. This is like, really poppy. / G: Well, the rest of the album isn't really like this one. (puts on 'Biological')

(to be continued...)
