Good morning Ken, maestroso!

I'm getting ready for the show and hopefully not in a non-listening way! Currently my status is 'gif-watcher' as I'm desperately trying to fix my laptop's audio (its power cable had a nasty short circuit). Other than that, it's a great day!

On Aerial View, Chris T played a little Charles Manson, seeing as Chris said Manson's music was awful and his guest charitably called it mediocre. But the bit played didn't sound bad to me--certainly not bad enough, say, to have qualified for Irwin's Atrocious Music. So do you have recorded evidence that Manson's music was really bad?

Then again, it may be that I tend to find rock & roll to be (with a few outliers) all pretty run of the mill.
  Wed. 9/25/13 8:46am Robert:

AFAICT, rock & roll started out as dance music that was a slight refinement of cha-cha. Instead of 1,2,1,2,3, it's 1,2,..,2,3 -- the 1st beat of the 2nd bar is suppressed, but you can dance to it the same. But then after a while they called contemporary stuff rock & roll even if it was 4:4 or more commonly the 2:4 like march or disco music.

kinda thinking that Queen is quite possibly the most overrated band ever. that is, of course after the Beatless. i mean no band in history or the future will ever be as completely overrated as the Beatles. can't believe the world fell for their schlock. then again, people like The Eagles too. i can't stand them.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 9:11am KOTJ:

Hi Ken! Last week I saw your cameos in the doc Radio Unnameable about Bob Fass and WBAI. How I didn't know about WBAI and Bob is an affront to the community radio Gods.

Coincidentally, I was up at 2:30 (EDT) this morning reading all about Queen's history and discography.
  Wed. 9/25/13 9:20am Robert:

The stuff that made them big to start with emphasized the most boring part, the beat, which was why they were called Beatles, and even most of that was 4:4. That's why their drummer was so important. Blah.
Avatar    Wed. 9/25/13 9:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ringo *is* underrated. ...though you do wish for a little extra drumroll here or there...
  Wed. 9/25/13 9:21am Robert:

And then they used their randomly-generated success to indulge their creativity, which was that brief fun middle period. And then I guess they just burned out & got boring again, like most bands would if they stayed together too long.

This may be or not be overrated...but it's certainly getting dissected here!
  Wed. 9/25/13 9:30am scentymint endstinks:

The Beatles were a once-in-a-lifetime televised train wreck between culture (race (black rhythms), communistic fear, sexuality, revolution, anti-war, etc) recording experiments, unlikely instrument combination, unlikely alliance of genius personalities, LSD, music sampling (world music), religion / black religion confluences. The Beatles were locked into a commercial dance between themselves, Beach Boys and the Stones: all trying to one-up each other with historical effect. But it all would have gone unnoticed if they wore buzz haircuts. :)

"Bohemian Rhapsody"


Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (any way the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico.

I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let me go) Will not let you go.
(Let me go) Will not let you go.
(Never, never, never let me go) Ah.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
(Oh, mama mia, mama mia) Mama mia, let me go.
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the wind blows.

@RR63 -- I was in Virginia for three weeks with relatives of a friend. I volunteered to drive the friend to VA and back for a quick 2 day visit to sick elderly dad to save $900 airfare, but when we got there it was clear he was going. It took him 2-1/2 weeks to die, though. So I spent my time working online in hospital lounges, nursing home lobbies, and homes of relatives of the dad. Good thing I can work from anywhere. Not much fun time available, though, what with 22 mile local-road drives twice a day to and from hospital and hospice...

Okasa, more has been inspired by less. By my analysis, the TV serial "Lost" was Damon Lindelof's way of telling Alan Moore that Damon realized that "Watchmen" was based on A.C. Doyle's "The Lost Special". That story was in turn apparently inspired by rail Engine 115's having fallen into a sinkhole in Lindal, England, on Sept. 22, 1892.
