So... how long is this song?
Avatar 🎃 Fri. 3/16/12 9:49pm Rebecca:

Pseu, it's a reporting period and the "live" isn't turned on. maybe that's the way you do it and you find them later, but I thought I'd remind you in case you'd rather have the rest of the start times already recorded.
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:51pm rob steffens:

23 minutes.
  Fri. 3/16/12 9:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Maybe Pseu had to duck out to run a few errands.

Thank g-d, finally done with a pointless, repetitive work-related conference call hosted by a lisping, hyperventilating administrator whose mouth is always full of saliva -- from 9 TO FUCKING 10 PM ON A FRIDAY, WTF??? I hope at least the west coast faculty members who got their desired 6PM meeting time are happy.

  Fri. 3/16/12 10:08pm mike tp:

lovely sounds
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:12pm EastVanHalen:

I hear you, G. I spent the afternoon in a meeting with a mealy-mouthed dirtbag politician who was insulting our intelligence about this stone racist immigration bill. Blech. More pop, please. Also, this glass of wine is going to taste awfully good.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:16pm G:

Great minds etc., EVH. Was picking and opening a bottle since sending the comment. The gf has a 3- hour head start on me, gotta get the lead out...

I don't know exactly why, but that Richard Swift track made me think of Memphis Skyline by Rufus Wainwright, another song I love.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:51pm Destroit:

Wow, haven't heard Lucious Jackson since this song came out. Awesome.
  Fri. 3/16/12 10:52pm Skirkie:

Do you know how often I think to myself, "I miss Luscious Jackson." ? The answer is "a lot."

OMG, even half of Yesfans (the 70s-only fascists) slag this off and make fun of Trevor's black leather pants.

Zonkers boasted inspired packaging... And deliciousness.

The batman zap/pow/bamm portion of this song is ridiculous. As in wtf were you thinking ridiculous.

I personally have had "Time and a Word" stuck in my head most of the week.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:11pm G:

Yes's most recent CD, their first studio album in a decade (2011), is basically 1980 Yes (Yes + Buggles "Drama") redux. It's really not bad. I broke down and got a used copy after they got cheap recently.

Speaking of tragic pop tales, Trevor Horn's wife has been in a coma for years. Their teen son, home from college, was using an air rifle outside their home and didn't realize she was nearbyA pellet hit her. Is that depressing enough?
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:11pm large Panties:

hey pseu , it's almost st . pat's. day . anything?
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:14pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@BS: Wikipedia, Trevor Horn article: "Communication from ZTT Records [Horn's label/production co.] confirmed on 1 September 2006 that Jill is in a natural coma and had been moved to a rehabilitation centre. In September 2009, Horn told The Times [of London] that he preferred not to answer questions about his wife, but confirmed that she was still in a coma."

It's not like I wish a Red Rider related vegetative state on every band that released a lardy triple album.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:28pm Newton:

Give the people what the want... Thank you
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:29pm G:

Yes has released some schlock, and a lot of repackaged stuff for retirement $$$, and in recent years they are pretty creepy visually in all honesty (the Brasilians have called Howe "Caveira"/Skull for many years). But many bands would kill to have the better stuff in their catalogue.
  Fri. 3/16/12 11:30pm RC:

Red Rider got a pellet gun named after them, but didn't put anyone in a coma.

the fall's version of "victoria" is the best version of "victoria" and i'll punch anybody who says otherwise. i will.
