See, being an admirer of the human form, I never found it nescessary to click.

I believe it's a kind-hearted variation on the custom of inviting one to have some tea.

Yeah... sadly enough I was told vaguely that TEA was not involved... but it was brown.

I haven't seen it either, but again - one of those things I can live without.

Hey!  Dragline just said Bobby's video was boring.  Which it probably is, in addition to being probably disgusting and tainted.

I don't know if I much like that attitude.

Well, well.   

I'm thinking about a little banjo music and some porcine delights.

Sound about right?

I'll take seconds.  You go first, son.  Heck, it don't matter none to me all none much.

I must confess, I'm not that familiar with the New Orleans scene (definitely have to look into it some more though) but The Meters have a slight Curtis Mayfield vibe who I absolutely love. If you haven't heard the Superfly soundtrack I highly recommend it. Here's a little taste;



Curtis was my man! I'd take him any way over Rachmaninoff...

I miss the late 1990's, early 2000's. That was the best generation of genuine musicians (once you take out all those bastard boy bands, and the dreg that the Spice Girls churned out)

Yeah.  She's as good as Rachmaninoff, actually. 

Here is an interesting fact about Ms. Lavigne, though:  by the age of twelve she was already an accomplished percussionist, who performed the Bartok Sonata for 2 Pianos with some members of the Ontario Symphony Orchestra as her debut concert.

Magnificent, intelligent musician, and indeed she went on to plumb the depths of the human psyche as a young adult, adding experience as a vocalist and arranger to her already impressive CV.

I tend to agree but I think some of the greatest music came out of the 80's (see Kate Bush, Tom Waits, etc…).

Nah - once you had arseholes in EMI records writing the songs for dingy fashion models (Bieber, Minaj, Spears) and let them mouth the lyrics while autotune and lip-synching became the norm - music went down the toilet.

It might be time for the vocoder to make a reappearance, you know, or a Peter Frampton-style  talk-box.

Oh, wait, you kind of have to know how to use those.

And all roads lead back to Neil Connery's classic movie The Highlander.

Not sure if I've told this story here, but when I was twelve or thirteen I bought a pretty accurate, thick book of transcriptions of many performances of Led Zeppelin.  You know, drums on one staff, keys on a grand staff, bass, guitar in standard+tab, vx in an approximation.

The spine fell apart and I was pissed off so I typewrote a complaint to Hal Leonard saying "blah blah mewl pule how dare you!" 

They did apologize.  In their way:  they sent me a book of Queen transcriptions in the same series of "orchestral" scoring.

I thought it was brilliant, just to shut some kid up.  "All right you little queen, here's another book for you!"

Never read through it.  Sold it for like thirty bucks USD, though.

Art Garfunkel was a pretty good actor, I agree.

I'm glad someone else thinks so. The Beatles always sounded so generic to me. I don't think their music is "bad" per se but I've never heard anything particularly interesting from them.

Mercury had a good singing voice, but as a person I didn't really like him.     

 I would say though that the The Walker Brothers had great voices.  I also liked, Simple Minds,
but mostly I liked the  American pop sound, such as the Beach Boys. I was In Canada when they were popular.

We prefer to call it the "quiet room."

It's really a designated ward, but we find our "guests" find it more comforting to consider it as a room.

Where everyone's friendly.

Of course, we do some fun when it's lights out, but that's just how we men in the clean white coats TCB.
