    “Now, this is a Doctor who was a grandparent. Either she has forgotten all about that, or Chibnall has. Because it just sounds wrong.”

    Yeah, but how much time has the Doctor spent thinking about his real family on screen. Nothing more than a few vague mentions of having one, even in the BG era other than Susan. At the end of Capaldi’s run we got her picture on his desk, that’s about it. And after Susan stopped traveling with him, did he go visit her? Don’t think so. Something like that should be on the screen if it happened. Her parents are the ones I’d like to learn more about.

    Was it the Doctor’s son or daughter that had Susan? Would it be possible to regenerate during childbirth? I mean the mother, would she cause some kind of genetic mutations if that happened?

    Maybe it’s too painful for the Doctor to remember everyone. That’s a looong lifetime, the people that the Doctor has lost must number in the thousands if not tens of thousand.

    His reunion with Sarah Jane was bittersweet for the both of them. He’s thinking “Awkward….I don’t usually run into the people that I’ve left behind”. She’s thinking “Oh, I see you traded me in for a younger model”.

     

    Almost missed the “this is a Doctor who….” part. Nice!  😀

    “Weirdly I don’t think I’ve ever seen the video for Hit. Which makes me think just how did I ever hear those Sugarcubes songs??!?”

    They had stopped showing videos by the time that came out. 🙂

    “Not heard Wildflowers (Tom Petty) before; its rather pretty and it oddly sounds familiar, so I wonder if its a traditional melody..?”

    It sounds like that because that’s the way Tom Petty wrote his songs. From the heart…

    But I looked it up, all songs on this album were written by Petty except for a couple by him and Mike Campbell.

    This is the biggest hit off of the Wildflowers record. Video is perfect too.

    One of the best videos I’ve ever seen, from back when they put some thought into the stuff.

    Directed by French film director Michel Gondry.

    Best comment?

    “Don’t forget to watch Tank Girl !…. Kiddies”

    Just brought it back around to Doctor Who with the Rachel Talalay mention…..   😀

    Might as well put this one up too…it’s awesome also.

    That’s all I meant. The fans knew. They know everthing.  🙂

    Wildflowers is so good from start to end, it’s crazy how good it sounds. Great production, clear instruments, vocals audible but not to far in the front.

    “I didn’t know that was Pearl Jam. Cool! And Tom Petty, so beloved and so missed.”

    Oh yes he’s missed.

     

    Nobody knows that’s Pearl Jam because I don’t think they are listed on the liner notes or anything. But you can tell it’s them from the playing style.

     

    Here’s the guitarist for Pearl Jam and Layne Staley of Alice in Chains. Mad Season.

    Please do, I bought it when it came out but I don’t think anybody else did.  🙂

    Reminds me of this record which is great from start to finish, but it never gets the praise of Full Moon Fever.

    It’s more mellow and reflective, which is probably why I like it so much.

    …and that made me think of this.

    Pear Jam is the backing band on this entire record.

    First thoughts on tonight’s episode…

    “Judoon platoon, near the lagoon.”

    That look on Graham’s face when he realizes he’s been mistaken for the Doctor once again…priceless.  🙂

    John Frusciante is quite the guitar player.

    You guys do realize that it was me in the “It takes you Away” episode. The BBC blew their budget on fancy new cameras and big name guest stars.

    Couldn’t afford to get their first choice for the part, Kermit the Frog. So yeah….it’s me the transdimensional  frog.  😀

    But first I have to take care of my new friends…anybody that I’ve tagged thank you so much and I’ve probably left out somebody. Sorry if that was you. I’ve been up since 4am trying to shovel all of this ice out of my driveway. We have a good 3 inches of a slushy mushy mess out there.

    You know that I care what happens to you

    And I know that you care for me too

    Think this would have been too “On the nose” for the “Empress of Mars” episode?

    I was there for this. It was as wild as it looks.

    By the end of the riot, the cops brought out the firehoses.

    They maybe got through not even half of their set.

    Place was brand spanking new when this happened. Owners sold the place not long afterwards. They rebuilt the whole shebang.

    Saw Rush there later on. Now there are some professionals. Sounded soooo good.

    For being their first record, I’d say it was pretty good.

    We might need to continue this on the sofa if we go too far into it, but I just wanted to add this.

    You know that any President doesn’t give a hoot about any Federal Department when they put the foxes in charge of the hen house. Know what I mean? The people he put in charge of the main departments hate the government and think that government is the problem. They’ve been gutting and systematically rolling back any kind of oversight and protection in almost all of them.

    Glad you liked it, I found that one by accident.

    Only real problem with that video is that even though it’s a dig at him, the bright orange Bozo would take the entire thing if he saw it, and turn it around into glowing praise for himself somehow someway.

    Even to the point of trying to use it as his re-election anthem.   🙁

    It’s a classic in my book, but you can never tell what somebody else’s musical background is like. As you can see, mine is all over the place.

    I was hanging out with the Metal heads, the Goths, the skateboarders and the stoner burnouts all at the same time.

    Getting back to something @mudlark and I were discussing. I just remembered this song that would be perfect if everything went kablooey.

    Let’s hope mutual understanding and reason wins out in the end though.

    And this song of theirs is more hopeful.

    Hmm…I watched the episode last night and besides really liking it overall, my favorite part was when Graham called Edison and Tesla “AC/DC”.  😀

    I put on my finest thinking cap and then had to toss it when it caught on fire from the very stuck and grinding gears in my head. Thankfully I’ve slightly recovered since then. Enough to post this song at least.

    Ever hear this one from Gary Numan when he was with Tubeway Army?

    No worries, if I’m posting too much music too often could somebody let me know. Not sure of protocol on these forums.

    Until then….

    Those Dead songs are from their early “Psychedelic” period. They changed into a Americana/folk band soon afterwards. Crosby, Stills and Nash were a big influence on these next ones from “Workingman’s Dead”

    You told me goodbye

    How was I to know

    Sad news for fans of American folk music, David Olney passed away peacefully on stage during a performance at a festival in Florida last night. It was reported that he collapsed on stage but fans said that the singer said “I’m sorry” and lowered his head.

    Never dropped his guitar.

    This is what the late Townes Van Zandt said about Olney –

    “Any time anyone asks me who my favorite music writers are… I say Mozart, Lightnin Hopkins, Bob Dylan and Dave Olney. Dave Olney is one of the best songwriters I’ve ever heard — and that’s true. I mean that from my heart.”

    And the piano sounds that I was talking about are found at the very end of that song…as it transitions to “The Faster We Go The Rounder We Get”.

    Hello there young Thane,

    I think you are ahem….”dead” on with your thoughts about what your Mom would say. 😃

    It’s 4am here and I should be asleep but when duty calls, I must be there to be a new version of  the Merry Pranksters. I must spread the message… The good word, if you will.

    If you enjoy the Grateful Dead, then you must have heard these songs by now.

    See if you can recognize the sound of a gyroscope being used on a piano wire to create a sound that probably didn’t even exist at the time.

    This whole ablum is worth listening to.
