I'm not TRYING to make this into a music blog, but I can't help it lately because music is so amazing. Yesterday, nigh-birthdayboy Rohin and I saw Tori Amos, and she pleased us both retro fans by playing 29384 songs from the 1990s albums. But the stunning surprise was the Apollon Musagete Quartett joining on many of the songs; here is the amazing "Cruel," circa From The Choirgirl Hotel. There is no video, but the sound quality is amazing. The strings will melt you if you have something to melt.
