    @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!

    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]

    @tardigrade – I also didn’t see why the Doctor needed to dispatch the dispatch bots at the end, since she seems to have the means to get them to teleport somewhere safe.

    my take on that was that she knew she only had a very few seconds to act (the system was counting down the teleport), and that keeping the threat contained was first priority. on…[Read more]

  • geoffers replied to the topic Kerblam!

    the last three eps have been very solid for me. i’m fully on board with chibnall’s vision, now, i think. for the most part. still not perfect, but as entertaining as the davies era, at least…  😀

    i’m quite angry, though, on the editing for one specific scene. when the kerblam delivery bot attacks charlie in the office, it first throws a punch…[Read more]

    @whisht – thanks for linking the end theme, you beat me to it! it took me a couple of seconds to realize why it sounded so familiar…

    this was also the moment that i thought, for the first time this series, “i can’t wait to hear this (and whatever else) on the soundtrack release.”  🙂

    @blenkinsopthebrave – As someone very wise once said: “You don’t have to stick your hand in a fire to know that it will burn.”

    i believe tolkien wrote it as: “the burned hand teaches best!”

    @mudlark – TIL! thank you, i had no idea it existed outside the u.s., and thought maybe it was spreading due to technology erasing borders, or some such. but i’m a bit oblivious, in general, having had a rather repressive upbringing…

    apparently. msrbahar has gone off to “write [a] better score with [their] crappy midi keyboard and Logic Pro.” can’t wait to hear it…

    @nerys – I would say Graham qualifies, wouldn’t you?

    but graham is emasculated (i.e. not the main character), powerless (depends on a women for safety), and subservient (even to the ghost of his wife)…

    /s (just to be clear!)

     

    ugh, i made myself sick, just with that bit of role-play. deffo wouldn’t make a good actor… :-/
