Ferry auditioned to front KC? And didn't get the gig. More evidence that vocals are Fripp's weak area.

I'd pay in gold to hear Ferry sing "The Great Deceiver", that's for sure..if I had gold.

  3:55pm Lulu:

what is dignity?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting to consider. Sometimes I think Obama was too much about 'dignity'. Too much of that & it's passive Normalization & Stockholm Syndrome. Too much passivity & presumption has got us here generally, I think. & by here I mean - colossal wealth inequality, irreversible climate change, environmental mass extinctions, class war leading to global embrace of Fascism, failing justice systems, utterly degraded infrastructure, economic & societal collapse, & other trivia...
Avatar 4:02pm MacGuffin:

Dignity is not getting hysterical just because your side has had a setback. The Trump years will be ridiculous but this too shall pass.

Yeah - I don't think it's all one or the other - but what reason to not expect the worst administration in history (@ least our own)? There's already damage to civil society - & his cabinet is full of Oligarchs & people determined to destroy the very departments they're supposed to run. He's surrounding himself w/ Generals & dispensing w/ Diplomacy...Were that it was only 'ridiculous'. The country & the world are @ critical junctures - & the reins are being handed to a hate-filled racist nationalist business fraud, bankruptcy pest, & game show host famous for terminating people. But - this is not Unreality TV - this is the real stage...
Avatar 4:11pm coelacanth∅:

okay, MacGuffin -good points; but it's not about one's "side" having a setback. that shit's for the republicans and, to a smaller degree, the democrats. it's about the world having setbacks. (see RR @3:56) -people who are passionately upset are so because they are concerned - or scared- for all the people of this planet.
...but yes, at least this era shall be entertaining.
Avatar 4:11pm TDK60:

Dig that psych-raga-rock, Fabio.
  4:12pm Dean:

OED, first entry on "dignity": "The quality of being worthy or honourable; worthiness, worth, nobleness, excellence."

Best quotation that supports RRN63's remark, justifying scare quotes around "dignity": 1836 H. Taylor Statesman xv. 107 It is of the essence of real dignity to be self-sustained, and no man's dignity can be asserted without being impaired.

That move by Norway is too wacky. I bet no big countries will dick around w/a screwy move like that. Small countries are more likely to pull these weird experimental moves. Consumers don't want to all have to buy new digital radios. Too extreme.

...presumably heading to general broadcast of wifi signal - internet - anyhow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Cliff in Prague:

Yes, they're switching to DAB, you can still receive stations for free, it's just that it's digitally encoded instead of analog. Kind of like HDTV vs. NTSC/PAL.
Avatar 4:22pm dale:

instead of just 5 stations they will get 22 so it isn't a bad thing.
  4:23pm Brendan:

You have to get a digital radio or get a conversion kit. A pain for car radios.
Avatar 4:23pm TDK60:

Oh...is there an article on this (Norway) online?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Cliff in Prague:

Digital encoding = no interference or static, however a weak station will just drop out instead of fading out.

Avatar 4:24pm coelacanth∅:

digital radio is shit, relatively speaking. that's sad. ...although it can't sound any worse than sirius.
- but it's all about greed in any case.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Ike:

@RRN63, yeah but most 40+ folks have far more radios than TVs. Cars have radios built in, but not TVs built in. I have something like 5 or 6 radios without even trying. They're just lying around. Also upgrading to HDTV was a clear huge improvement in pic quality but digital radio will NOT be any better-sounding, I'm sure. Already-existing "HD radio" is useless garbage and doesn't sound any better than analog.

Did you ever think that Obama had to keep an aura of dignity because he was our first black President? You see it on Fox News and the idio-right sites. He chastises someone gently, it's lashing out. He's doing normal lame-duck pardons and other business he knows he can get through, Fox News calls it "a year-long temper tantrum".

And don't even get me started on how Hillary was treated. Yes, she was an Establishment candidate, but I heard from the left and right that her only qualifications were that she was a woman

Shortwave had interesting propaganda/news from governments. And human interest type stories one might hear on "public" radio. It was exciting and nerdy at the same time to be DXer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@C'ec: Oh absolutely true - true. Obama could not be 'the angry black man' - & wasn't. I think Democrats went NeoLiberal as a response to the NeoConservatives - that is, dragged the DemParty to the Right/'Center' - & found there was no Left anymore - & no 'Center' to stand on. (Oops Hillary.) Maybe now in present straits we can actually start to address all this together - but the DNC has to get there too...

...yeah yeah - I know. Bernie for example is both an Independent & a Senator: trying his best from Inside a System a true Left would say should not exist. But he decided not to run Independent & divide the vote. This election result is a symptom of Default System Failure - & the radical Left says even the end-stage disintegration of it...Unfortunately, Libertarianism, got highjacked into the Tea Party & getting even more radical Republicans in the back door under the guise of 'Deregulation' & 'personal freedumbs' & being 'pro-business'...so I'm feeling excessively Socialist these days...

I remember voting for a mayoral candidate, even though he was personally conservative, because he said that his agenda would be to get the roads fixed, snow plowed in the winter, better police protection in the inner city neighborhoods,spruce up the community gardens and give more money to the schools. He didn't get out of the primaries, but the candidate who won, borrowed heavily from his platform.

he's out of office. People used to call him "the music man". He often talked a big game. He wasn't a terrible mayor. Just more into being liked than effective. During the bus strike of '04, he was one of the last major officials in the area who wasn't a wingnut to throw his support to us strikers. US reps, the mayor of St. Paul, every other official made a statement of support. He squeaked his displeasure in around Week 4 of a 6 week strike.

Release Music Orchestra were nicely jazzy Krautrock. Secret Oyster, except for the fact that they weren't German, are good, too.

good to hear you clay

...@ worst, 'Fusion' was the worst of both worlds - diluting both Rawk's drive & Jazz's intricacy. Too easy to forget that stuff - because we are selective about it now!...Otherwise, it's just what Word you call it...

Thought for a minute you were talking about KHAN, the Steve Hillage/Dave Stewart vehicle...

Suitably spacey music for my afternoon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Linda Lee:

yes. Terry Riley.

...and robert reed.

Baba O' Riley was a tribute to Meher Baba and Terry Riley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm steve:

isnt the OReilley in Baba OReilley actually a reference to Terry?
Avatar 5:52pm geezerette:

Thanks Fabio. Collective consciousness well caught.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Carmichael:

Correct a mundo, Cecile. Not many people realize that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm melinda:

@Cecile: I remember reading that somewhere but didn't know anything about Terry Riley at the time, now it makes sense.
  5:53pm Dean:

Terry Cohen?

Carm, I only heard about it recently, and quite like Pete for doing that.

Townshend: ' I meant to portray guru Meher Baba in music - including astrological information & everything converted to sound - & it turned out sounding like Terry Riley '...

I always forget it's Fabio's show when Clayton arrives.

RevRab, that's a great quote!

I always thot of 'Who's Next' as 1972 or even 3 - but it's still 1971. Quite a band.
  5:58pm Dean:

Er, J-L David. Misplaced hyphen, a blow against the Revolution.
  5:58pm Dean:

Same here, @RRN63, until I bought the CD a month or so ago and, for the first time in my life, actually listened to the album from beginning to end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Michael 98145:

( that sounded like a Thai khaen )
  5:59pm Fredericks:

Fast Eddie!
