Yer good Todd, the comments board is all green.
Avatar 4:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

What I remember most from that is Kent saying Keef turned blue on Kent's watch & he had to 'walk' him & such to not OD. Keef trades on his outlaw image - fair enuff in many ways - but it's been no joke. I enjoyed Keef's autobio as well - but the short shrift given BrianJones rankles... Yes I know he was a devil too...

Well - those who have survived are turning 80 now too - maybe it's us being pretentious to expect them to remain our youth rebel icons... To the extent 'we' do... What did Townshend say inducting the Stones into the Hall of Shame: 'Don't age gracefully - it wouldn't suit you'...

IK,R? Are there ever cool, low-stakes negotiations?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Mr. Pumpy:

Rev Rab...the amount of great music did change...it increased! A simple byproduct of exposure and production costs plummeting to where someone can make a record in their bedroom or apartment these days. Sure, a lot of shite came along with it, but there is more music than ever being pumped out. In turn, more cream on the top.

Great title for a play, I’m telling ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Mr. Pumpy:

Rev Rab...that's a good, and interesting point. And I do get it when folks sit around and talk about the glory days of tunes and all, but usually these are people that don't realize the major media outlets aren't the only source for what is actually going on. Good thing we do...and that we have something like WFMU to aid in the quest for the fine tunes!

The Broons are a tough team. The two teams play a very similar style, but the Bruins seem to do it better. But these Islanders can go toe-to-toe with anyone, so we shall see.
Avatar 5:15pm ShelbyG:

2021 commercial radio = someone pushes a button & blah
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Mr. Pumpy:

clarke, I don't think I do either, but if you've seen a few TV commercials or watched any current movies, you probably know a lot more about commercial radio in 2021 than you think.
  5:16pm clarke:

just because one of my former bands has a 'song' called Go Bruins - doesn't mean any allegiance (in fact, the song is VERY sarcastic).

Avatar 5:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Obviously Modernism & the 2nd half of the 20thCentury was a CounterCulture explosion - & the 1960s in particular a confluence of the PostWar demographic Youth Boom, Underground Culture & Art, advancing technology in Recording & Broadcasting &tc. - & the Boom in economics & Industry all interacting. Modernism was the Shock of the New. Exciting new advances were explored.
One notable aspect of PostModernism is Pastiche. Everything used to have its Manifesto & be so important. It was all gonna Change the World - & your Style & Statement meant everything ! But now we can pick & choose among them all. It can be like the little old church surrounded by skyscrapers - or a vital culture being stuck into t museum. Miniaturized: Reduced. 'Inside the Museum, Infinity goes up on Trial. This is what Slavation must be like after awhile'...
But I think this is also old news by now - & we have plenty that's Meaningful now again ! You have to believe people will be Creative in the broad & true sense.
Just riffing...

Mr. P, Qubador has a lot of heavy lifting to do!

Huh, really Frank? It's one of the few juices I like. I mean, it needs alcohol in it, clearly, like all juices. And I like a little lemon juice to ground it some.

Like how orange juice needs gin and vermouth to really come into its own.

so you are referring to the western? i don't think the name of that film is Ringo - i thought it was Fast Ringo??

There's a class of meds which you should not have grapefruit with. I'm thinking statins but that just seems wrong.

i think it is blood thinners that don't work so well with g-fruit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Frank In Queens:

@Handy, I mean I'd probably drink it if it had booze in it. But otherwise, it's a no-go for me. That along with coffee.
