"FREEDOM ROCK" (should always be all caps)--could we float it as a new category, ala "Yacht Rock"? Neil Young I think has made a lot of FREEDOM ROCK.

@chris, hard to describe - let WP do the work: en.wikipedia.org...
Tocotronic is well known in germany, They have great german vocals + lyrics and guitar sound, with a lot of sadness but energy, floating into positivity and back. something like alternative, post-punk. I recommend all albums till "Pure Vernunft darf niemals siegen" in 2005.
"Pure Vernunft Darf Niemals Siegen" ("Pure Vernunft Darf Niemals Siegen" #07)
"Der schönste Tag in meinem Leben" ("Es ist egal, aber" #13)
"Meine Freundin und ihr Freund" ("Digital ist Besser" 02)

Can someone give me advice? I recently got a parking ticket in another state (NY), where I used to live. The meter maid obviously got the license plate info from my still-valid NY registration sticker, thus ticketing my old plates that were sent in and destroyed months ago. Should I pay the ticket?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm coelacanth:

if you're not going back to that state for at least 7 years, no.
...and if it's nyc, you may be safe in ny state as well.
...but then, my experience may not hold for everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm chris:

if you don't have free legal counsel, it will probably be cheaper to pay the parking ticket, bqe... especially if you want to move back to ny
Avatar 1:16pm Cecile:

also, if for some reason you have cops or a DA who's on your case, even a parking ticket can be an excuse to hassle you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm chris:

good point Cecile...

  1:17pm rw:

If they sent you the ticket they have your address. I'd pay. Though not paying would be pretty tempting. If for nothing else than just to see if what happens (or doesn't).

Bummed I'm missing Mantar this weekend. They are great live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm coelacanth:

there are many reasons you may want to pay it. in my case they were dead wrong and it was a big one. ("blocking a bus stop") ...i took photographs to prove it.
so i pleaded not guilty and they ignored that -instead increasing the fine. this happened a few times until it was 3-4 hundred $$ so i just started ignoring it, and not driving into the city.
that was years ago.
  1:21pm rw:

And hey Chris M! Nice to hear the show at a new time. Creates a slight shift in perspective...

Gonna try the snake remedy for sure.
Avatar 1:25pm Chris M.:

what's everyone's favorite use of snake venom to eliminate NYC tickets? i've found a simple rattlesnake cure-all that works wonders for blocking the box.

  1:26pm JakeGould:

@ottovinbqe: Pay the ticket, get dressed up nice, go to a bar where rich people drink, steal their tips.

Then again that screws the bartenders so go to a bar where the bartenders suck and just steal their tips.

When his brothers came to bail him out they gave the woman a "Get Out of Jail Free" card from Monopoly. Evidently she wasn't impressed. But I thought it was pretty funny! How could one not laugh (even just a little) at that??

$8, that's a nothing-burger.

I think it's kind of hilarious. Like Swans-hilarious.

I'm not a Marillion fan, but I can see how other people would like them, why do you ask Chris M?
Avatar 1:46pm Chris M.:

@Cheri Pi: so just to be clear, you did not like the song? just let me know for sure what you thought about it because it's not clear.
Avatar 1:49pm Cheri Pi:

I closed my eyes and tried to pretend Dio was singing it (as someone else suggested) but I could not save the song even with my imagination. I would have to say.....it was unlikeable to me. but I can see how others, especially Martin Glover, might like it.
