This should be an easy one. An easy post, I mean. It's harder to put together the willpower to start with a post about an original idea. Music perhaps I can do.

I play a bit of piano. Really not much. I started "only" two years ago. I know only very basic stuff; a few simple songs, some classical, some pop. I'm self-teaching, which I'm sure really is as terrible an idea as people usually make it out to be. But I enjoy the feeling of teaching myself things, even if it's suboptimal. At least it doesn't seem impossible -- I feel like I'm (slowly) getting better, and I do seem to be getting a better understanding of music at some level, which is what I mainly set out to do I guess. I don't think I'll ever be a professional musician, of course, but then again I don't think I care. I'm fine with being an amateur (this will be a recurring assertion in this blog I'm sure, I should write a post about amateurism - or just make it my pseudonym?).

How self-serving is to write? Writing about oneself clearly is. But which writing is really not about oneself, or about what one has lived, or what one thinks or considers important?

Programming and music.

I just fell in love with Ravel's "Gaspard de la Nuit".  He wanted it to be the hardest piano piece in the world.  This picture is from a classical music website.   But it's not just hard - it sounds good, too!

[Here](https://youtu.be/fTjjJbndjis) by Alessia Cara, although I feel like it can work for introverts in general.
[Datastream](https://youtu.be/7JaAclYdz9k) by Celldweller
[Brain ≠ Heart](https://youtu.be/VzLRHUah7KQ) by Analog Rebellion
[Oh No!](https://youtu.be/O1o4KKipaC4) by Marina & the Diamonds has several lyrics other INTJs may be able to relate; about feeling like a machine who may push relationships away as they focus on their goals/ambition and the change they want to see in the world and themselves
[Forty-Six & 2](https://youtu.be/GIuZUCpm9hc) by Tool
[Abiogenesis](https://youtu.be/xSqwNnnnRls) by Carbon Based Lifeforms, the calming and otherwordly ambience just feels fitting, especially when it spells out the Drake equation. It just feels fitting for Ni and Ne doms for some reason.

[2019-11-13] Songs that describe INTJs /r/intj [[intj]]

Talking Heads entire discography. Especially the first two albums.
It's like music for INTJ's by an INTJ. Topics no one else could put to music, and let alone get radio play, yet catchy and timeless as hell.
I don't say it enough. Thank you, David Byrne.
Edit to add: I love the National. I never thought about that song like that, but I get what you mean. I once explained my 20s as "another un-innocent elegant fall in to the unmagnificant lives of adults"

Jon Hopkins - C O S M (Daniel Avery Remix) This song makes me feel like I’m drifting in space. Remix of the year for me

Pendulum - Still Grey (DJ Seinfeld Remix) The best song off The Reworks, imo. This remix got me into DJ Seinfeld

Four Tet’s remix of Opal of course

Beck - Up All Night (Oliver Remix) Oliver killed it like always

Le Youth - I Could Always (Borussia Remix) laidback, groovy, summer jam

Camelphat & Elderbrook - Cola (ZHU Remix)

Dua Lipa - IDGAF (Darius Remix)

Charli XCX - Focus (yaeji Remix) yaeji is amazing

Kelela’s remix album has some great cuts: Santa Muerte, KAYTRANADA, Ethereal, Rare Essense, Joey Labeija, LMK (What's Really Good Remix), Tre oh Fie, Skyshaker, Nathaniel W. James & Dave Quam, & Ahya Simone are my favorites

Gabriel & Dresden - Waiting for Winter (No Mana Remix) has that RAT-era deadmau5 sound

CHVRCHΞS - Miracle (The Juan MacLean Remix) they turned CHVRCHΞS' worst song into something worth listening to

Diplo - Worry No More (Keys N Krate Remix), Wish (Jarreau Vandal Remix) I really like that talkbox, & Color Blind (TWERL & Max Styler Remix)

Moodoïd - Miss Smith (Myd Remix)

[2020-10-07] Bow Down: Women in Art: Alison Goldfrapp on Leonora Carrington [[music]] [[tolisten]]

[2020-01-27] Empty Spaces - Wikipedia


The song is in the key of E minor, and is two minutes, eight seconds in length. It features a long introductory section, with solo guitar and a repetitive drumbeat, and an airport announcement, as a reference to Pink heading for a concert tour. The song reaches a climax of tension, at which point Roger Waters plays a descending blues scale over the minor dominant, B minor, cueing the start of the vocals. Roger Waters sings a short verse, ending on the phrase "How shall I complete the wall?" This track shares a backing track with "What Shall We Do Now?", sped up from D to E, with new guitar and vocals. The last beat introduces the next song, "Young Lust".
