    @AW sorry to hear that, good vibes sent……

  2. Xpun Says:

    Palmer – I got the 75 Floyd show from Nassau and the jack white collection today. His white stripes stuff is okay but what I’ve heard of his other projects I really like. Also check out holy ghost tent revival. Crazy band from phoamms neck of the woods.

  3. voopa Says:

    Second the Jack White rec. The new Beach House is great too, if you’re not familiar.

  4. Elementset Says:

    good gracious miner, thx for reminding me of that alpine tweeze the other day … at 7 min mark when that celestial passage begins to unfold, good gracious …

  5. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Ironically, I am listening to the elementset. It’s real good. Still.

  6. Heady Brosevelt Says:

    hello, hello. i do not post on here often, an occasional drive by. thanks, as always for the tunes miner… i had a very phishy day today, i hope you all did too… enjoy the weekend

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Jack White- Blunderbuss? How is this one? Latest one on spotify.

  8. voopa Says:

    That’s the one Palmer.

    I revisited UIC 3 last night for the first time since September, then rolled into 12/28 II for the first time since December. Both hold up, but the element set is where it’s at.

  9. joemeg Says:

    Yeah the element set is one of those special nights. That Alpine Tweezer was also part of one of those special nights.

  10. Mr.Miner Says:

    UIC 3 – meh

  11. Gavinsdad Says:

    Elemental.

    @palmer – old music is good too. Neil youngs Massey Hall show is a fine performance.

  12. Mr. Palmer Says:

    7 songs into this Jack White record and i like it a lot. Good rec. He is one talented mofo. He plays all the instruments and mixes and produces the whole thing, huh? Wasn’t into the White Stripes, a little too on dimensional just the drums and guitar, not that i really dove into their catalogue.

    gdad- just finished up Tonight’s the Night during dinner..great album. I’ll check out Massey Hall.

    UIC 3- had some moments. All in all, i picked a good night to lose my mind completely to the point the music was insignificant. “they played ghost” – was my quote the next morning…

  13. Mr. Palmer Says:

    “they played ghost? ” – forgot the question mark !

  14. xpun Says:

    ^^^yeah they did, but not for very long 😉

  15. Robear Says:

    Best part was, the SLFgets on the stand as a witness. I was charged $200 for firewood. Which never existed. Judge asks SLF about firewood claim. She says
    “There was no firewood! There was a rats nest! The thing ate the dog food and pissed everywhere. Yeah! And there were tons of mice in the house! In fact, there was a Speedy Gonzalez hole in the wall! We showed it to you!”

    It was classic. She dropped the Speedy reference.

  16. plord Says:

    Robear, instant classic court transcript, and congrats on the legal beatdown on evil landlady.

    Now Slopoke Rodriguez…he pack a guuun.

  17. voopa Says:

    Believe it or not, myspace is streaming the Hangout Fest this weekend. Jack White coming up in minutes:

  18. William H. Bonney Says:

    Thanks for the heads up Voopa…..

  19. MiA Says:

    I find great joy in Robear winning his “case.”

    #deserved.

  20. ElJefe Says:

    W. Bonney- pretty sure Waters wrote the lions share of Floyd’s music and lyrics.

  21. xpun Says:

    voopa – just tuned in, thanks for the link, im digging this

    looks like he fed meg after midnight?

  22. Elihu Says:

    Popping in to pimp this new band with former members of LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip. Gives me a bit of Trey band feel (in a good way) for some reason:

    New Build

  23. William H. Bonney Says:

    @Eljefe ok, Most of the song writing credits reflect a collaboration. Made no claim about wright/gilmour writing the lyrics, neither was prolific in that department. Animals and The Wall were the post pure Waters Floyd works.(Final Cut is first solo roger IMO) As u will find only Dogs a waters/gilmour, of course the record was only 4 songs. First time Dave got cut out of a Floyd solo also. Snowy White did the solo bridge for the Pigs on the Week Part I and II single, 8 track only at the time. great solo if u haven’t heard it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emn4t1syDQ0&feature=related

    I believe the Wall gilmour/waters songs were ABITW, Young Lust, Comfortably Numb, and Run Like Hell. Not sure why the Roger fans get so hung up…he wasn’t Pink Floyd….he was a part of it….You will also find David did a quite bit more of the singing, esp. if they wanted to be on key.

    Thanks for another solid week miner & bb, this place is truly a cornucopia of cultural nuggetry®.

    For my part, and before it’s too terribly late to count as a contribution:

    -Had a lasting infatuation with Pink Floyd that culminated with my ten stripped out self, alone in a dingy old trailer, shaving my head, face and eyebrows off in an act meant to signify my separation from participation in society. Yep, I really did that. This was in my late teens a during the height of my lost years (98-01ish??). Started a new job the next day and had to wear a ballcap pulled down real low for a month. Looked like a brood peering out from under the cap but a full blown psychopath without it.

    -Was once arrested (many times actually but on this occasion) for underage possession when I couldn’t drive the cr home after my bud got popped for DUI. I was the passenger in the back of the truck. We had a few beers because we were out of weed and bored as shot when someone called to offer us gel tabs. Iirc tried offering to drive the car to avoid impound but couldn’t pass the breathalyzer.

    -Shared a short version here before but Revolver and Rubber Soul were te soundtracks to a very intense bad trip I had toward the end of this period when the muse had become very predictable and therefore useless to me. I have not been able to spin them since. The cover art brings back surreal dreamlike imagery. George was my earliest intro to eastern philo in early adolescence (finding my way out of a fundamentalist Christian upbringing, this was a very big deal for me). Yay Beatles

    -@aj, your story (nothing, end) got me thinking of balance. At any given moment things may appear in balance and there is perfect balance in that there was nothing to begin with and will be nothing in the end so everything in between is basically irrelevant. There is much joy and suffering in the world but it doesn’t matter outside of our personal experiences and perspectives. Which is to say, our personal development is really what matters most.

    -Which leads me to this: with so much apparent imbalance input lives that is outside if our control, it seems to me the only thing completely within our control is our perception of events. When we live in peaks and valleys of mental balance we force ourselves into a constant adjustment back toward te balance that makes life so much easier to cope with. If I can hold my mind in balance then the uncontrollable sources of imbalance become more manageable. Finding irony in frustration is almost a meditative self-flogging.

    -Props to William Silly, esq. & Dr Dayman

    -And finally, I’ve been saying the Facebook ipo is free money for those who can see a small window and not get greedy. Two days, maybe two weeks. I was wrong. It was about two hours. That stock is worth zero. Facebook is OVER!

    Whoa long post! That’s a penalty.

    Pardon the iphonedness above

    By muse I mean lyserg, not the music.
