    @blenkinsopthebrave

    for some, yes. might want to @craig about it?

    not for me, facebook already opened that bag, and that omnisexual space-cat is definitely out of the bag! 😀

    “It’s possible that the storyline is heading in a direction where the Doctor is losing all her ‘props’ – Gallifrey, Time Lord and now the Police Box – in a way that symbolises the past she now knows she’s lost. But if that’s the direction I’d expect it to end with the Police Box back as she gets her sense of self and identity (w…[Read more]

    i believe this to be a steaming pile of horse manure, but it IS an eye-catching title (aka, clickbait)…

    Doctor Who Will No Longer Use A Police Box For The TARDIS

    news, at last…

    https://www.doctorwho.tv/news/?article=doctor-who-series-thirteen-begins-filming#_

     

    seems likely that there’ll only be 8 episodes for series 13, but i’m ok with that, if they keep the 8 best scripts. it could make for a tighter, more exciting series? be still my beating hearts…

    @jimthefish

    thanks for that, this is the first i’ve seen it. the flapping of the arms was a nice touch. if only they’d put a bit of a regeneration glow in there, for the viewing audience, after she hit the floor. but maybe he hadn’t thought all this through when first writing the ep…

    but we all know, by now, chibbers is much more tell than…[Read more]

    @thane16 & puro

    even with those clues, i’m afraid my brain has been wrung completely out of ideas. i’ve gone through every band i can think of, aussie or otherwise – inxs, midnight oil, men at work, ac-dc, tears for fears, the fixx, the cure, duran duran, a flock of seagulls!  (lol, and i’ve gotten sidetracked a few times, by old songs that i…[Read more]

    @whisht – i’m glad you enjoyed the caravan palace! they have new music coming sometime this year, and i’ll be making whatever effort is needed to see them in concert, if they tour the states, again. from what i’ve seen on youchube, they put on quite an energetic show… hopefully i can keep up!

    as for zappa, i bought ‘jazz from hell’ on cassette…[Read more]

    it would get me out of the store pretty quickly!

    oh, youchube… another hearty chuckle!

     

  • geoffers replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    oof… i chuckled mightily at this! some here might get the jokes, as well? i hope…

    @pedant

    i’ve heard many strange tunes at my grocery store, but i shop there mostly after midnight, so maybe the store radio is controlled more by the employees then? lol

    even this!

  • geoffers replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    and speaking of discovering new things via youtube, this electro swing band is what i’ve been obsessing over for a couple of days, now. the video conjures up memories of that time a giant cyberman menaced london! (but sorta in reverse!) 😀

    @thane16

    the 90’s weren’t the best decade for music, but i do have some favourites from then (sarah mclachlan, smashing pumpkins, tool, tori amos) worth checking out. your mileage may vary. but i think it was the decade that led to the “death of radio.” at least for me. i really abandoned finding new music on the radio (or via music videos) once…[Read more]

    @whisht – the alan parsons project has been my fav band since i heard that song on the radio, as a kid, which is unusual, because they used multiple lead singers throughout their career. so it was difficult to identify new songs of theirs when they were released! their catalog is worth digging into, they’re a bit pink floyd “lite.” but the mid…[Read more]

    @thane16

    i really, really, really hope it’s not this song that’s driving puro mad?! (one of my favs of all time!) 😀

    [edit: not being able to identify a song/song fragment drives me insane, too! and who doesn’t love a great mystery?]

  • geoffers replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    @whisht – i’m not as well-versed in jazz as i’d like to be, so i can’t spot the parkerisms either! but the pups sound closer to funk and rock to me, than to traditional jazz or be-bop. and not as improvised. i think the more structured nature of their tunes is part of why i love them, i don’t have to work as hard to follow what’s going on! 😀

  • geoffers replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    @thane16 – i agree re: the vocal accompaniment on that track, it seems unnecessary to me, to mimic with voice what you could more easily do with your instrument. but i’ve long been a fan of instrumental music over “songs,” anyway, and get more so as i get older. there are plenty of great voice performers that i still enjoy, and i love discovering…[Read more]
