i am somewhat confused by this. i am protective of 'endless dream', cuz several years ago, reap played it for me. i had never heard it. i forgot how the conversation started, but he was shocked i had never heard it (or the talk album at all.) so he played the song for me with that look on his face... ya knowwww, the look that sez he knows i'm gonna luvv it, and he is just eatin up the fact that he gets to turn me onto it and watch my reaction. he was right. he is right about these things 98.3% of the time.

it aint just an american thing, especially not in terms of more radio play or exposure, cuz no one here heard talk. yes had lost me by then. are brits more conservative or purist about what they consider a real form of a band, the classic recipe? i dunno about any of that. it just depends. i always go for what i think is good to mine ears. i don't give a crap where or who it's from.

do i think the track ranks higher than 'heart of the sunrise'? no. but it's still up there for me. i think those john sections that move up and up and up even when ya don't think they can go up anymore are wunnnnerful. i think they're inspirational. i've used that track on an exercise bike mix before, as the closer. mwhahahaHA.

to be honest, i am probably more protective of 'endless dream' than i am of anything on big generator, and most of 90125. i can't tell whether that makes me more american or less american.

in the end, though, we must look where we connect, since we are not clashing swords in the same group, of course. my brother handed me fragile (and aqualung and made in japan) when i was 9 or 10. although he was american (born in panama, strangely enough), he warped my frajyyle leetle miiiind. at my core of cores, i'm probably just as musically britty as all you bastards.

on an unrelated note, can i move to wales? i've always wanted to. if not, why not, dammit? sniffle.

I can put up some matches this week where both competitors have already submitted just to get things rolling but those that haven't submitted yet still have till the Easter Weekend. I'll be away for that long weekend so won't be able to post anything anyway.


I don't think so. Should wait until all entries are in.


are you in my group? hmm? well, are ya, punk? puddddem upppp. and yer lil groundhog, too.

TCE: do whatever the hell ya want. don't listen to me. don't listen to lord groundhog. do what works for you. you are the poobah. poobah decides all.

p.s. imagine all us BCBers were on one committee to figure out the master plan to save planet earth from a doomsday asteroid hittin in 24 hours. the only way to destroy that killer rock is by blasting it with a weapon consisting of a specific three famous songs. well, earth would be fucquin toast before we'd all decide on the version of the first track, what format, which remaster, etcetcetc. kaplooooey.

pigpen, i fully predict i will get slaughtered beyond all bloody reckoning, ya know. i always predict this, cuz it is usually exactly what happens to me, in any and all competitions around here. i suspect last year was a fluke, weird luck of pairings and moods, and not ascribable to actual talent at strategizing or playing to the crowd or any of that crap i am clueless about.

that being said, i am going to be cocky and in yer face the ENtire time, dudette, no matter my scores, becuz you CHEAT, dammit. i may go down in flames, but i will make damn sure before i do that yer wearing a luvvly lil wispy lace number with matching platform leather boots and perhaps a few gypsy-like accessories, i dunno, maybe a floppy velvet beret lookin thing, or a a silky shawl, something that really brings out yer eyes.

these things matter.

Sorry, Kath, I didn't mean to stoke your ire, I was just trying to engage in some pre-competition discussion. We'll just have to agree to disagree about Endless Dream. I only mention the American thing, because on forums like Yesfans, I have noticed that American fans tend to favour the Rabin period more than the Brits. I could be wrong though, it's just an observation.

Why Wales? It's never really appealed to me and it's only a few hours drive from my house. Seriously, I'd suggest looking a bit further south and in particular, the English coastal and rural counties of Hampshire, Dorset, Devon, Somerset & Cornwall: outstanding beauty to be found there.

Only Huw and Apollo's Frock's lists are outstanding*. I shall give them a gentle nudge and we can get going.

Thanks for that :D! It was a tongue in cheek apology, trying to dig myself out of a hole, but cheers for this anyway: my inner clown approves.

Dude, Hildegard von Bingen was a nun AND a broad. That's about as churchy as it gets!

Hope you guys are having fun progging out...

that hildegard thingie really is beautiful. i've played it a few times since you put it up.

ya know, count, i really am kinda surprised you don't dig more prog, what with its occasional classical markers and variations and movements and all that crap. maybe you do, and i just haven't been payin close enough attention. for some reason, i tend to see you as almost two halves... the classicali symphonic side and the james brown/-amba/funk side. i know that's a misconception on my part. (i know you dig all manner of pop, for example). but ya gotta admit.. it would make for a KILLER split halloween costume. oh yessss. half baron von beethoven, half james brown. mwhahaHA.

Awesome - seminary AND robust! :)

It's fun doing a bit of the proggy thing. I'm guessing there is not gonna be as much Bo Diddley as i'd like, but my blessing (and possibly my Cup curse as well) is that i have extremely broad tastes. So while i've never really been able to get into some groups like Yes or Gentle Giant, i love a heap of stuff that falls under the Proggy broad church eaves.

So let's rock!! In many time signatures and several inter-related parts!!
