In 2009, I had an unusual spate of activity and I might have wondered at that, except that I already knew it was down to my Muse ... Here's something about the concept of The Muse, though: Remembering that it's really just an address we send things to, just an idea and not something that should be transposed into real life in the form and shape of an actual person … I want to speak to my Muse and dedicate these things I do to my Muse, but do I really want my Muse talking back to me? Not so much, actually.... So, while I'm energized and pleased with the results of having a Muse, there's also recognition of the need to keep the genie in the bottle. And that's why Mr. Spock's Advice is so completely spot-on that it merits the mix-set title honors. Here, let me quote it for you: “After a time you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting ... it is not logical, but it is often true”.
I was originally thinking of calling this set PopFLY, since the inclusion of the Chris Brown track brings it as close to pop music as my mixes usually get … "Forever" is included because I saw the same YouTube J/K wedding entrance clip that everyone else did, only difference being, I didn't already know the tune they used, so it struck me the way, then, that it struck everyone else when they heard it for the first time …
And then I was thinking about calling this set “Advertisements for Myself” (keeping one eye out for legal representatives of the Mailer estate) just because that Nightmares on Wax tune "Know My Name" seems like such a worthy anthem for my musical life …
But then I got hold of the dialog drop from Mr. Spock that opens the set … it covers so much possible territory, it's so suggestive … yep, there's a whole lot of “wanting but not having” in most lives, when you start thinking about it. In fact, Cantoma’s track "Rain" claims the closing position here precisely because that melody is one of the most wordlessly evocative expressions of wanting but not having that I've heard.
