Hey Fabio! Excuse while I fall off my chair - someone is actually playing Procol Harum! Woo! Cheers!

Wow, Procol Harum. I don't hear them much on *any* radio station anymore. Great band.

  3:39pm Brendan:

Sight unseen , it seems like they are going for ‘A-list’ actors for an ‘art film’ to play it safe. Both are arbitrary terms anyway and so long as it tells a good story, I guess I’m cool with it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, people of failure!
Avatar 3:44pm Polyus:

Oh, there's no playing it safe with this movie. Aronofsky is basically out in the parking lot doing donuts with his middle fingers out the window here.
Avatar 3:46pm Polyus:

It's a whole new level of over the top, even for him. I can't say I really "liked" it, though I have developed kind of a grudging admiration for its gaudiness in the week since I saw it. I can't really explain. . .

Avatar 3:50pm coelacanth∅:

i bought a best of- album when i was probably around 10-11 for whiter shade but grew to like some of the other songs better.
Avatar 3:50pm TDK60:

Procol Harum has several great albums -- lots there.
  3:53pm P-90:

You mean it's NOT pronounced "War-wack"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm ⓔⓘⓚ:

I despise most "classic" rock but that was pretty decent. I was like, "Is this early Genesis? No, wait, it's better than that."
  3:53pm Brendan:

Whiter Shade definitely hits a primal emotional nerve.
Avatar 3:57pm kppk:

@coelacanth∅ I once asked Jeff Mullen if he was Geoff Mullen but he said no & no relation, but it is possible that we know different Jeff(s)...

Good afternoon, Fabio and failureologists!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm joe mulligan:

this Norman Westberg is so peaceful. thanks Fab!
  4:05pm Clay:

Mother! is the best thing I've seen since Witch. It made Black Swan seem like Son of Flubber.
  4:05pm JakeGould:

The thing about Darren Aronofsky is he has great ideas and skills, but in the end it is always suffocating negativity. I liked it with “Pi” and “Requiem for a Dream.” But once he got past that it was just misery schtick.
Avatar 4:06pm Honeybear:

what time was normal westberg starting again (tonite)?

I always appreciate a little Neil. Thanks Fabio.

Neil Young gets better with age. But I don't know whether it's his age or mine. ( :D )
Avatar 4:10pm Stay Frosty:

@geezerette Amen to that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm steveo:

anybody see Neil recently at Farm Aid?
Avatar 4:11pm TDK60:

More of that "classic" rock some folks hate. But when it came out, we didn't know it was classic yet. And I betcha, someday folks will put down stuff from now.
Avatar 4:11pm Honeybear:

@geezerette - the more years go by, the closer you get to other people in age. so I guess that means we're all getting younger, together
Avatar 4:13pm geezerette:

@Honeybear: I certainly hope so!
  4:13pm JakeGould:

How’s everyone’s Pono doing? Nothing better than listening to my Tidal tracks on a Pono!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm steveo:

never heard On the Beach on "classic rock" radio, TDK. it's the repetition/lack of depth that bugs me about those stations
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm steveo:

very rich sound from Pekko Kappi; love the strings and the whispers
Avatar 4:16pm coelacanth∅:

i think Mr. Young has gradually gotten better since his overall horribleness of the 80s; but still hasn't and positively never will reach the Awesomeness of most of his pre-80s recordings.
but the fact that he's still even tolerable is Extraordinary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm mrdonutsu:

Ha, he just said my last name!

Steveo: Oh, you meant *those* stations. Never liked them either. It's the music I like and those stations usually never really delve into it, like you say.
Avatar 4:26pm bnowb:

I like :)
Avatar 4:27pm geezerette:

Hey movie people, watched "A Poem is a Naked Person" by Les Blank on Filmstruck last night. Great documentry on Leon Russel.
Tons of great music and time travel to 1974 in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Leon's brain, and genius musicians all over the place.
Many crazy surprises.
Avatar 4:29pm geezerette:

Vincent Gallo, gorgeous!
Avatar 4:31pm TDK60:

Geezerette - I saw that. Was impressed by the country session players in the studio. Leon was quite a rocker; never saw him live.
Avatar 4:31pm bnowb:

Selfie sticks how do you like those? Buffalo 66 so funny.. "sorry i just had to go to the bathroom"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm steveo:

tell us how you really feel :)
Avatar 4:33pm rascal yammers:

Thanks! I had a feeling Mother was a stinker, but - curiosity was about to get me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm ɨkɛ:

I haven't seen "Mother!" but it got an "F" Cinemascore grade from audiences, which is virtually unheard-of. Cinemascore is usually very lenient. Super-shitty movies usually get a B-minus at worst. Of course it doesn't help that it's been mis-marketed as a horror movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm steveo:

@ike - Girls Trip got an A+ from CinemaScore, fwiw. Even The Emoji Movie got a solid B.

Who doesn’t like Emojis? All the bullshit and death in the world and all cultures like Emojis.

@jakegould : you are actually totally right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Fox:

I find it strange how popular the poo emoji is.
Avatar 4:51pm geezerette:

@TDK60@4:31: The session players were brilliant, and the Pickin' Parlour, the whole thing. Love Les Blank and Leon Russell.
Never saw him live either. We clearly missed out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Mike da Scag:

the dog whistle frequency set. Good music. But I got kinda mixed feelings about mega-upper-register tonality.

Shucks. I step away for awhile and come back to discover this lovely alien music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Cliff back in the U.S.S.A.:

Is there an emoji emoji? What would it look like?
  4:55pm Vanessa:

this song goes really well
with the sound of my e-bike
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm ɨkɛ:

I forgot to add that horror movie audiences are the only audiences that rate movies harshly in Cinemascore, so maybe that "F" isn't that surprising, since it was marketed to them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Michael 98145:

... and come back to discover meta-emoji discussions
  4:56pm Brendan:

Somethings gone wonderfully wrong in the transporter room.
Avatar 4:57pm TDK60:

Avatar 4:57pm geezerette:

Why isn't there an emoji of an emoji enjoying mochi? Huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Cliff back in the U.S.S.A.:

What is the sound of one hand failing to type an emoji emoji?
Avatar 4:58pm coelacanth∅:

had a chance to see Leon Russell many years ago and didn't take it. i don't remember why not, since his segment on the original woodstock soundtrack was instantly and remains to this day one of my favorite moments on the album(s) - and i think aptly demonstrates some amazing talent.

Steve0- hope your not really anxious.. but that football kick reminded me of tennis. There is being a great tough tennis player. but are you MATCH Tuff?

@coel, I saw Leon Russell and Edgar Winter perform together in a Lake Tahoe casino many years ago. Winter was a whirling dervish, playing every instrument he could grab. Russell was very sedate and still. I learned much later it was due to his MS.
