Just heard Dad saying (upon reading your message) that you write like Pete the Crocodile Catcher. Made me chuckle, then ponder for some time what that {...} was called again.

Had Zoot Allures on again... amazing album...

There's something about these longer threads I need to fix...
In the mean time, I'm listening to a nice episode of the Big Cat Diary. The narrator is using the Attenborough-approach, which makes me smile.

Listened to my French course CD (Bbp gave it to me)
First twelve lessons followed.

Sometimes you already know the words end sentences
Sometime it is going very quickly (all those short words)
Sometimes it is very funny
PÍcher (Fishing) is pronounced as the dutch Pisse.
In English is Pissen to piss
Strangely enough there is no difference seen from behind when a guy is phishing or ........
So All the languages come close to eachother.
Just cheked wiki for False Friends
(Words that are written or pronounced the same as in nother languages but meaning something completely different)

I'm fine. thanx fer askin!
I get a bunch of days off from work so I take advantage of it. Eat when I want, sleep when I want, work as I feel like it. play on the internet A LOT.
Bonny, I think you would really like the new Wazoo cd. It's a diferent kind of official release. you said you had the berlin show. which is great, yet wazoo is definitely NOT an audience recording. It very much has that you-are-there feeling, and not like it's coming to you thru a string-and-a-can!
It's a nice blend of classical and rock, avant and traditional. Eye opening. Better blended and completely different music than, say, Ahead Of Their Time which has those elements too.

Discovering somebody put all the Mr Bungle tracks on YouTube! Too awesome almost: unfortunately I lost both my Mr Bungle albums (Disco Volante and Mr Bungle), when lending them to my sister. Why do I keep letting her use my stuff?

The Bedlam In Goliath is excellent, Aqua. If you like their other albums, you will dig it for sure. Up there in my albums of 08, definitely.

Oh, and check out Mr. Bungle's "California" album BBP, if you haven't already.

It is WIN.

well, actually I've never heard any of their albums but I plan to do it soon, so I'd just like to know what it their music sounds like and what records you recommend.

The Mars Volta are really cool as a band. I love what they do...total virtuosos. The singing kind of gets annoying for me after a while though. Their former drummer formed One Day As A Lion with Zach de la Rocha and recently released an ep.

There's some of their material on YouTube:

You're right, Scallop: the singing is annoying, although the music is interesting.

I think the singing is an aquired taste, but I love it.

I would start with De-loused In The Comatorium though Aqua...

About a year ago I decided to try out the Mars Volta. I found Frances the Mute in a used bin, picked it up, and was quite impressed. However, it's almost TOO frantic and busy for my tastes - as if they're trying to do everything at once and it just gets exhausting. Frances has a neat pace though (the album seems to take forever, which isn't a bad thing), with more long songs than you would think could fit on a CD. Supposedly it's a pretty experimental for them. I then got De-loused in the Comatorium, but have been unsuccessful so far in listening to that one. Just too much too soon. I'm saving it for when I'm more in the mood for that kind of stuff.

Bonny, re: Mr Bungle. I'm not crazy about California, and the first album really blew me away the first 20 times I first heard it but it sounds mostly annoying to me nowadays (all that carnival stuff kinda grates). Disco Volante, however, is by far my favorite and an avant-rock masterpiece.
