    @arbutus great to see you up and about on the Forum! I didn’t know you were in Alberta. Being as I have my secret ways I think I was in Alberta (for 2 weeks) when you were in school there.  But it was your last 2 yrs of school and I was 13-14 so….maybe not. But the Arbutus and puro line may have at least danced to the same music at the time, so…[Read more]

    @XAD4 and others who love the Osprey Project in Wales. They’re closing off sections at the end of the month as they’re building a new wildlife centre. Also, Peris was very hungry!

    Hey! Sorry, what’s an “Emily Post ?”

    Yeah, here, we do tag people because Syzygy might confuse people or they may not really want to read that again. Short story: mum and I share the tag. Mum’s sick a bit, so sometimes I type for myself, others I type for her. I’m doing that now. And when I DO type for mum, I always let people know…[Read more]

    @pedant  hehe. Ma-mah  yelled up at me to answer this. So, I have the computer (the only thing in the house that’s not my phone I can get internet on as the school computer locks you off the internet on certain hours of the weekend. We’re permanently locked out of youtube which is damn annoying as there are 1st class lectures on philosophy and n…[Read more]

    you. Never. Miss. Anything.  (YNMA). That’s your name now, sorry, but it is. You asked for it 🙂

    I love Wah-wah. Possibly boring anecdote: I had this playing really loud to a group of very sick gentlemen in the States (fiddling around with music therapy) as well as the Beatles and Merseyside groups.

    Ah yes, so syzygy came from a show my son loves (and me too) called The OA. Except he had also learnt that, in astronomy, it’s an alignment of three bodies including a celestial body like the sun.

    Also, practically, my son and I are both holders of the same name -and in poetry, and music, particularly during Homeric times (the music,…[Read more]

    For a child so busy with assignments, he sure has a lot to say, does Syzygy. Mind you, I agree: lots of music his friends listen to is similar with pulsating back beats, over- bass 16 tracks & is wholly digital with almost nothing that I would say gives the impression of natural. Certainly if the Beatles, Bowie, ELP could do…[Read more]

    @Roger429  OK. I will thanks. That’s a long way from here (evening). I’m about to go & play 2 football matches one after the other. So night and evening won’t come for another 6 hours!

    Action’s fine! I remember at 12 loving Buffy FOR the action. Later, there came (ahem) different elements I liked.

    I really liked Eccleston’s first episode “Rose”…[Read more]

    I take your point. Agreed. But. Many of the original dr who stories actually were historical stories. At 17, I’ve seen, probably, 11 of these thru a period in ’63, ’69 with the Dr Original (Dr O not Doctor No!) & Pat Troughton.

    Man, were some SO slow. I realise today, when you put a piece like Rosa up against ANY episode in the 60s and…[Read more]

    That was for @pedant basically.

    @pedant @roger429

    I have listened to that so many times and I never thought it was smutty. I mean I have been singing the lyrics and now it’s so obvious. Proves that in writing and in music you really have to PAY ATTENTION.

     

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

    @pedant @roger429

    Your comment makes sense @pedant. I forget that the BBC has a variety of “expectations” as the ABC does here. I think Rosa was great. And one more was awesome. But I liked quite a few. Rosa was studied in class -and is still being studied with the next round of students.

    Young Syzygy.

  • syzygy replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    that was me Syzygy the younger one. And I liked your music in post # 67985 @whisht.

    That’s something we hear a lot. And I respect and support all that you said.

  • syzygy replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @whisht you’ve been playing a lot of great stuff. I don’t think I knew about the B52s til a few years ago. On at a party and I was surprised. It was 16 year old’s party and the music was 70s and 80s. I figured I’d go back to another one of those. Really awesome funky dancing.  So.….

    you have been working hard! I have the embarrassing tale of not knowing very much about the B52s until Love-Shack which I thought energetic -more so than Lobster, actually, which McCartney didn’t like and Lennon (well, OK, Ono did). I’ve never head Planet Claire before! Ooh. Good!

    But only The Leftovers and Doctor Who remain in the bracket of spell-binding, decisive, and beautiful telly
