Especially for anarchist...

Now... this is the type of "modern" music that I'll put up to compete with virtually any of your recent choices! :) Whadya think?

Sorry. I don't like it...

It just isn't very special to me, and neither are the lyrics. Both seem overly simple and bland, with no interesting or memorable qualities. It seems to have minimal composition that only adheres to the most popularly accepted style of rock music.

Here's something similar (but more progressive) that I think you might enjoy more, based on your taste of music:

It sounds best when you listen to the whole thing, so some patience is required.

Yeah... I listened to the very end!

There are stretches of instrumentals (primarily guitars) towards the end that were rather creative... but waiting did become a bit tedious. I don't know how it fit in to the scheme of things, but I was interested in the Russian antenna farm (спасибо большое)! Also... the geometric diagram was interesting... but not sure what information it wished to convey or how I was supposed to be influenced by it. Presumably... there was a message in there... some place?

So... truce? :)

Oh... btw: That concert hall in the clip I posted (above)... I expect to be sitting in the audience next April (2014) for a quite spectacular production of Mozart's Don Giovanni... featuring a truly baroque orchestra!

The art in the video is all from the CD of F#A#∞.

The meaning of the antennas may be explained further in the title of a later album GY!BE made called Raise Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven.

Here's the full picture of the diagram:

I don't know what this could mean. Maybe the problems facing the working class in the current economy. But then, what is the tape rumble and tape hiss? This will take some time.

Maybe... whatever... who knows?

But that now out of the way... obscure as it is, it does inspire a lot more faith in man's sanity than the world's fiasco/frenzy that's being fueled by events currently taking place within a very small and insignificant enclave in Rome! :(

And what enclave

would that be?

Ah... this reminds me...

of how much we miss the presence of Tycoondashkid! :)

What? Why?

There's something here I'm not getting...

elph's picture

Really? Am I truly that inscrutable?

Anyway... thanks!

Answer: The world's current obsession with the election of a replacement pope! Thank God it's now over... but now there'll be seemingly-interminable analyses... as if it were a truly significant event!

No,

You're not inscrutable, Anarchist is just oblivious to the election of Pope Francis I. I've always wondered why so many people actually care about Papal succession. I have to admit though, it's an interesting choice. A Jesuit elected as pope is clearly odd, in my mind. I believe, the Jesuit Credo is to serve the Church's hierarchy and avoid anything construed as personal gain.
However, he didn't campaign for it, he was elected by his peers.
I thought for sure the Italian candidate would've been elected. After all, I believe the Vatican Hierarchy would prefer to see a 'homeboy' elected or at least someone from Europe. A New World candidate for the first time? He's 76 years old? I'll give 3-1 odds he'll last four years tops, unless of course, he dies suddenly within a year from dubious causes. Can we say that's never happened before? I think not!

Well...

It's not about how many people care or are interested, just how it was sort of nearly impossible to avoid hearing about...

Well,

I suppose I was wrong in saying that because I listen to NPR radio and you're right, there was incessant speculation about the election and all eyes watching for the white smoke billowing fron the Sistine Chapel. HMMM, wonder what it smells like. Isn't it ironic the day after they elect a new pope, the people at CERN have verified the existence of the Higgs Boson particle?

I for one am excited about this newly discovered Higgs boson.

It could even further scientifically support my philosophy of Taoism. The Big Bang theory already has supported it, so this is another step.

jeff's picture

Well...

I'm not sure we should turn to sitcoms to shape spiritual paths.

Although, technically, I did the same with Seinfeld.

actually

"Italians" don't see themselves as such, but rather as coming from their individual city-states. So the likelihood of all the Italians being united is pretty low.

The ducks will get you!

anarchist's picture

Yeah.

I just found out about that this morning. I don't keep up with the news.

Consider yourself,

Lucky.
