Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:46pm Caryn:

@Droll: I actually have way less issues with the Paisley bits of that song than with the LL Cool J bit, which has the most whackadoo lines in it. Sheesh.

Droll, you are very timeshift resistent.

This all brings up an interesting point: what is the one song line that for some reason annoys the hell out of you, for whatever reason?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

How *do* you do that Droll?

Also: "They're sharing a drink they call lawnliness."
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:54pm rrg:

This was first pointed out to me by someone else: "He's a complicated man, but no one understand him but his woman." The first "but" is completely wrong in that context.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:55pm Caryn:

For some reason, I get apoplectic whenever I hear the line in Elton John's "Your Song" that goes, "If I was a sculptor, but then again, no". Really, Elton? That's like a line that goes "what if?... naah" and thus has absolutely no reason to be in the song, except to rhyme (somewhat) with the next line's "show".
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Really Caryn? - I like that - makes it more conversational & interesting...Wait - am I being sucked into talking about Billy Joel & Elton John again?? Well - not 'talking' exactly - that'd be like a bad lyric...
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:57pm rrg:

The lyric is actually Bernie Taupin's, but...yeah.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 3:58pm rrg:

Oh, but you didn't say he wrote it. Excuse my pedantry.

there's no excuse for pendants.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:00pm rrg:

And there are far too many gifts mentioned in "The Twelve Days of Christmas". It's too hard.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:00pm Droll:

Juliana Hatfield reminds me of one of my most dreaded lyrics, from "My Sister". First time I heard the song the first line was so cheesy I was able to sing the second line with her. I changed the station.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:00pm Caryn:

@RRN63: the last 2 verses of the song do the conversational thing way better. This second verse just annoys me. Not to mention that the "man who makes potions at the travelling show" bit makes no sense either, so both lines could've been replaced by something else by Taupin. WTH Taupin, were you high? Suffering from writer's block?

Of course, I know a guy who gets incredibly annoyed at the "I Dreamed a Dream" line "But the tigers come at night" for no clear reason. If he hears it he basically yells out "what frigging tigers?!? Aarghh!!!" I, meanwhile, have no issue with that line or song.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- something wrong w/ 'David' ?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:05pm Irwin:

@LL: There are some songs in which EVERY line is annoying, such as "Take It Easy." Do I need to hear a guy sing about how he's "trying to loosen [his] load"? And then there's "Imagine."

'Imagine' is the Communist Manifesto (no religion, property or countries) as a child's limerick.

Is it me or is Joe Franks voice sexy as hell??!!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:12pm Droll:

RRN, The Communist Manifesto is Marx, not Lennon.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:13pm Caryn:

Individual lines of "Imagine" without context can be totally pleasant to hear. "Above us only sky"? Fine. "Living for today"? Fine. Even lines like "you may say I'm a dreamer" and "a brotherhood of man" are ok without the cloying context.

Should we assume Ken & Andy's location recording session did not go well?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 4:46pm Droll:

The Oracle boat is doping, I don't care what Captain Armstrong and first mate Rodriguez say. I saw them at a "private boat yard" and they said they were just getting their barnacles waxed. Puhleeze...
  Wed. 9/25/13 4:47pm Robert:

I'm glad there was at least a little bit of gladness in Joe Frank's program that aired today, even if most of it was morose. If he left every character sad, that would be mean of him to them.

I've concluded that all or at least most fictional characters know they're in a work of fiction, but are afraid to let the author know, for fear that some of them will be mean the way Andy is to Railroad Bill, and that others will be so spooked to know their characters are aware that they will stop writing about them and thus shorten their existence.

@NGH: Morphine syrup was invented to get babies off of them. Then Bayer developed heroin syrup to get them off of *that*.

@RRN63: I'm assuming this must be a "Buddaist" anti-drug comic?

You can't plunder the FMA! It's already Free.

Matt, I have one CD by Morcheeba: "Big Calm". Never bought another. Didn't want to change my opinion of them.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:26pm Fredericks:

GMMM, no thanks, Fucker.

analog media is ephemeral too.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:27pm rrg:

Or have redundant backups of your digital content.

Analog will save us--and especially microcassette interviews!

@Fred: I think they're good, but your opinion is free to stay put or move as it desires.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:29pm Droll:

My best cassette memories are still worse than my worst CD memories. Tendency to jam up transports, low sound quality, low durability, and J-cards. 'nuff said.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:29pm Irwin:

@otto: Tell it to the Codger. His 78s play just fine. He's got stylii older than you!

That Beyond the Clouds track is hot!

...but given the universe is infinite - there are any number of alternate versions of every media...*somewhere*...
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:33pm ottovonbqe:

I think those 78s will only play a finite number of times though. One of the nice things about digital is knowing that it won't break from the playing.

Sneezing on babies is bad? lol w/e

- digital file won't wear out just by playing - but what it's stored in may...
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:36pm rrg:

Wow. It's been years since I played this. And I have it.

Thank you. I'll be playing it again.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:36pm Droll:

Otto, If you can find a computer that still runs software that supports the file format... and the DRM doesn't stop you. Digital makes storage cheap, which says nothing about being able to use the files.

Tull? But this isn't Mandl's show?!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah great Tull track. Quote me even.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:37pm ottovonbqe:

@Droll - I know - but you can't actually play it out.

As long as we're in the prog segment of the show, Crimson is apparently going to tour for the first time in a decade -- with three drummers:
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

You can't 'play out' a hardrive? I dunno!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:40pm Carmichael:

Just got back to the board. Irwin, there's a volume 3 of Key of Z??? Man, I gotta wake up and smell the amateurishness. Amateurity.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Let there be Crimson!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:42pm rrg:

I've wasted my life. I could have done stuff like Dr. Haber does. Instead of OS development and infrastructure support. And it would have been more fun.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:42pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: They say you can't play out a hard drive, but my record stylus has done a number on mine...

@Carm: I'm hoping for a Songs in the Key of Zzzzz comp, songs with absolute nothing distinctive about them.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:43pm ottovonbqe:

He's wasting his life too - I don't think you should worry. No one needs cultural artifacts that bad.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:43pm steve:

whoa, new King Crimson is exciting. Droll does it explicitly say they're plotting or tour, or is just safe to assume?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

See Matt!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:43pm rrg:

Lou, because analogue is not forever (either), the idea is to digitize this old stuff, it seems to me.
  Wed. 9/25/13 5:44pm Laura L:

Have to leave early--thanks for another fine show, Irwin.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:44pm Nanker de Tucson:

enjoyed the early J Tull track, Irwin!

@rrg Yup, I should have phrased more like Analogue has new digital life...but not catchy that way.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Fow 1st - great album. 'Sick Day' like a great lost Simon & Garfunkel.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

AMC stuck some bottom-end in this one...
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Never heard their very first album, or "Sick Day"--oughta check that one out!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:50pm Droll:

rrg, To the contrary, if you turn your skills to writing machine emulators, we can run the same defective bloatware forever as an emulation inside a virtual machine inside guest OS inside a sandbox inside a browser.

This was a fine show. And it was free! How does that happen? Shouldn't someone get paid for this?

Thanks, Irwin. Bye, all. It's time to go watch my stories and prepare for dinner.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

But they weren't Capitolists for much longer, later taking up Appl-ied Recordism.

Thx As Ever, Sir Irster! (If I may.)
Nice one everbody !

If you're not staying for the upcoming failure, have a good night, people!
