    Do you know that feeling when you discover new music that is absolutely, positively, awesome? I have not had that feeling in an awfully long while. Do you guys know of any music that is truly awe-inspiringly amazing.

    P.S. it dosen't really have to be mindbogglingly awesome as long as it is decent.

    I'm most likely to take Alternative or New Wave. Folk can be fairly decent as well.

    Do they still make new music? I don't know.

    Because you all have been so fruitful in your pursuits to deliver me from my musical starvation, I bless you with some of my most cherished song:

    My most recent favorite alternative album is "Until the Horror Goes" by John Congleton and the Nighty Nite. I would rate 9 of the 10 songs at 4 out of 5 stars or better; however, I realize that it's surreal nature is not for everyone.

    People identify with such different creative expressions, there's no way for us to know what you would find awe-inspiring.

    But here's what I would offer you:

    Some 20 years ago a couple of young brits gathered their savings and a small pile of portable digital recording equipment and set out to travel the globe in search of artists, mostly musicians, but some actors, writers, dancers, and so one, too. And their idea was to use the recording equipment to enable the artists to interact with each other even though they'd never met and live in very different places and cultures. They were creating a kind of audio-visual collage.

    I think the results were spectacular. They finally put it all together into an interactive DVD they called "1 Giant Leap" that was divided into specific subject segments that you could choose to play as you liked. Segments with titles like "Money", or "Time", or "God" or "Death", etc. The end result was so amazing that they did another one a few years later reaching people and places that they were not able to get to on their first trip. When that one was finished it was called "What About Me?" It was not divided into segments like the first one, but played like a long musical/documentary movie. And it was just as amazing (IMO) as the first one.

    The reason I suggest these is because I discovered a whole bunch of fantastic musicians through these two DVDs that I would otherwise never have heard of, and because I think they are amazing DVDs, in themselves. Unfortunately you can't see them on YouTube in the whole. The one they have that claims to be "the whole movie" is some weird uncut version and pretty incoherent. But there are parts of the originals, there that you can see. So I will post a few of them to give you an idea of what it's about.

    This is the segment called "Time" from the first DVD.


    This segment was called "Faith"


    (all the different artists names are listed with the DVD so you can look them up if you're interested in their music/books/etc.)

    The second edition of 1 Giant Leap, called "What About Me?" is on Youtube but it's a little more ideological, and a little less musical, I think. Also, for some odd reason someone uploaded it in black and white. The original DVD in not in black and white ...
