I’ve always loved bagpipe music, and I assume it’s like so many other things that happen by very early conditioning.  My mother told the story of a bagpiper coming by in the first few months of 1931.  I, at about four months old, was being very fussy.  As soon as he began to play, I stopped crying, calmed down and fell asleep.  Since this was in the midst of the depression, she gave him a meal for his playing.  It’s a good thing he wasn’t an itinerant minister or lecturing conservative politician, or I’d be a fundamentalist or a neocon.  Or, on the other side (George’s), maybe I happened to have been born with a gene for appreciation of bagpipes.  LOL

When I was at university, if our neighbors were playing very loud music on a weekend night, one of my suite-mates used to put on a record of bagpipe marching band music, and crank the stereo up to full volume. We also had a big subwoofer.

I think you could hear it clear across the quad.

Needless to say, our neighbors tended not to blast loud music very late at night. OTOH, I kinda enjoyed the bagpipes, myself.

Neah, I am done with that. After listening to Barry (remember Barry?) today interviewing Chomsky (HERE), I suddenly realized I am only wasting my time. I think I am going back to the novels.

The sound of the music echoing among the houses was beautiful. I stood out there for about one minute until the man was out of sight and the sound was fading. Those few seconds changed my mind about bagpipes.

Nice.  The bagpipes played well (and preferably outside) can be quite moving.

I love bagpipes, though my mother, growing up in England told me she had a neighbor that would open his windows at a rediculous time of the morning and begin playing… she’s not a big fan of it as a rule.

As for Christian music:

16 Horsepower “Sackcloth & Ashes” - in my top x albums list
Gavin Bryers “Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet” - incredible, haunting, disturbing
whenever Tom Waits covers an old Hymn or Jesusy tune

As for Christian music, I like Low (a Mormon band - loosely Christian) and the Danielson Famile.  They both fall under the Indie category.  I think Eva O was also Christian (ex-Christian Death).
