a) Beowulf has always been one of my favorite songs.

b) my Dad used to read the story to me and my sisters when we were very young (that and the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe are the ones I remember), probably from some children's classics book, and one of my earliest memories is the feeling I would get when he would describe Beowulf diving into the lake at night to find the secret cave, the lair of Grendel. I guess it could be described as a combination of fear and wonder, but that's not quite it. Maybe there is a word in russian for it, but that feeling, part body, part mind, is what I want "art" to do to me all these years later - to reveal the cavern beneath the lake.

c) I haven't searched for them all, but Bowie's musical recommendations left me flat. As they usually do. I always get excited to hunt up the sounds, but I am usually disappointed with the results. I'm not even gonna try godspeed you Emperor. I can kinda already tell I won't like it.

I bought that Jesus' Blood lp when it came out, after reading an Eno rave I think, but I agree that it is mostly annoying. Although it is one of those weird albums that you can listen to ten times on different occasions and 9 times it will leave you flat, but then it will catch you in a certain mood, or maybe when slightly intoxicated, and you are suddenly transported and understand what all the fuss was about.

Peng Liyuan should work for me, but it just makes me think of things I like better. Zhou Xuan for instance.
