  1. Only one of those records has "The Prophet's Song" on it.
  2. Merry Christmas, every one - or whatever you celebrate! Did I have a dream? Crimson misty memory At the fireside Through the endless winter storm Endless rooftops from my window Silver, blue and frozen silence A deep Sahara of snow Frozen in an everlasting view I see red A pleasant-faced man His beard is white, his face is lined Bearing a gift beyond price The things I’ve always been denied, Precious gifts beyond compare Time stands still Feelings run high As excitement shivers up and down my spine Then all at once Fly by night away from here To blaze across the heavens like a brilliant shooting star
  3. At first I thought I was voting like everyone else. Then I discovered that I'm the only vote so far. Oh well, at least I agree with myself.
  4. I'm not sure if anyone can answer this, and I'm not sure I even know how to describe it - or if there is a term for it. Sometimes when you watch movies on an old film projector, the image will seem to "drop" for a second. I'm not sure if it's the film slipping as it goes past the lens. Or maybe the speed isn't constant? Does anyone know what the hell I'm talking about? Is there an explanation for this?
  5. Always dug this tune. So great to hear it live - thanks!
  6. I think of him more as a favorite musician than favorite guitarist. I have no idea if that makes sense.
  7. I think some people call it "grammar shaming." I think you're better off critiquing the content. At some point over the last several years, proper grammar has become an ideological issue - something about how our so-called "formal English" derives from the rich merchant class of long-ago England, and so forcing it on people is discriminatory. Where I teach, some of my colleagues think you should no longer use the term "error, " but refer to grammatical "differences." Who needs clarity? Ambiguity makes communication more like an adventure!
  8. A youtube video called Buckethead Megaliths - so many great grooves!
  9. What was the name of that technology that a lot of us accessed for the final Rush tour - where people would hold their cellphones up and we could watch in real time?
  10. I hope you have had a great birthday! Don't go changin'!
  11. I just got a copy of the reissued vinyl. It sounds absolutely great - way better than the CD. Enjoying a great album even more!
  12. Hope it was a good one! Many happy more!
  13. I like it a lot. I also wish it was just a bit brighter sounding, but I think there are some damn fine songs on this record.
