the Sacred Headphones

for this one...

gotta be Mcluhan
gotta be DJ AM
gotta be Bose
gotta be Dre

these are sacred sounds
balance
fades
strings
rilling rims
hammers, pulls
sonic
feedback thrums
bass lines
crackling
pick-ups
humbucker resonance
these are sacred sounds

  4. If only I could afford headphones like that; it'd be nice to hear nothing but all thouse lovely sounds you've described.

  5. I love how modern headphones seem to pipe the music purely and sweetly straight into your head--a spiritual experience indeed. An excellent subject for a poem, and given its full due here.

  6. Never quite thought of head phones that way. Maybe I need to check them out. Thanks for the visit to Shadows Of My Mind today.

  7. I saw "these are sacred sounds" lines as concrete image of L & R of the headphones and the sounds described in between as what is in the middle of that sonic sandwich :-)

  8. I have never been much for headphones but you make me want to try again. See if there are sounds I didn't open my mind to before. :)
