@Ike: But FWIW, there is a big push to “revitalize’ (aka: gentrify) Sunset Park. So the Bush Terminal Park is one piece in a larger puzzle that will get better hours when other zoning crap happens. Mark my words.
Avatar 4:44pm Ghost of Posts Past:

@Apples Caruthers noise rock/music can be good. it depends on how the music plays out and if the duration compliments the "sounds" being used. i for one don't like compositions that play out for 20 minutes with minimal effort, unless the purpose is to be anti-music. not all noise rock however, is anti-music. some sound fine with a shorter track duration than others. you'd be surprised that noise has a lot of variety. btw. i'm in my mid 20's and still enjoying noise just fine.

GoPP i dont think so... the true offender was Trolly Trollington above you who used "some" quotation marks "incorrectly" "."
  4:50pm Mark:

Ike I notice in two weeks or so (May 2nd), that park will be open til 8 for the summer! I support everyone's right not to like every single thing every single DJ plays every single day. It can get a little "Emperor's New Clothes" around here sometimes. I posted a critical comment about a track I heard this morning and everybody answered with how much they were enjoying it--I said, well, that's the nature of freeform, right? The reason I listen to FMU is, even if a DJ plays something I don't like, I'm pretty sure if I stay tuned, I'll hear something else I REALLY like soon. (If I don't jump out the window first.) I'm actually a big Fabio fan and even that very annoying noise track was OK with me today. Now, another day I might not be able to take it. Oh, well.
Avatar 4:50pm Ghost of Posts Past:

Metal Machine Music is an interesting album for me. it's a concept i love, yet i can barely get past part 2.

  4:54pm Mark:

I read once that Lou Reed only did "Metal Machine Music" to punish his label because he was mad at them and he wanted to give them the least commercial thing he could think of. I'll always remember his interview with Lester Bangs, telling him there were bits of Beethoven in there, but Lester couldn't hear it because he was too stupid.
Avatar 4:54pm Chris from DC:

Rev, that RM74 is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Stepchild:

theres always someone with ruler on hand with the punctuation punishment, may as well be me today.
Was that enough commas for you?
And hey, my name ain't Trolly it's Polly.
  4:58pm northguineahills:

@Mark: I once was playing a droney piece, and my roommate (back when I was in college), and he commented, "are you vacuuming?". Four years later,
I met said musician, and he said, actually that was a sampled vacuum.

A story of failure for today. Several different computer systems at work today gave me messages about failing passwords. Long story short, I recently spilled a little honey on my keyboard while drinking tea. The honey was causing an extra character to get entered. But I couldn't see it because password letters are hidden. This had me in a panic all afternoon until I figured out the problem.
