Blogs of Note



Please note that Blogs of Note has gone through its second transition.

Crusher is dead...or so we have been led to believe. My mourning period has passed and his link has been retired. I compare this to throwing his ashes into the sea (or at least flushing them). For me, this is closure.

Good bye also to Hairy Prison Guard. Let's face it, Hairy. You never updated and you were boycotting me. Did you think the keeper of Blogs of Note would stand for such treatment? No - your parole has been revoked.

Blue Guitar guy...you amused me briefly. That time has passed and you are now history.

Let this be a lesson to all of you. You had better post and you had better post something good or you will be dealt with severely and swiftly.

On the bubble: Storm (yes I just added her, but let's recall it was in violation of my personal rules and I admitted at the time that it was for a limited reason). Unless I see something other than poetry and song lyrics, Storm faces elimination from Blogs of Note.

Also on the bubble: Badgod - dude, I love your stuff, but you just don't post enough to keep my appetite sated.

I would also like to see more from Omar. I can't cut you, Omar. After all, you came up with Cracker Thieved my Melons. But I really need more Omar. A steady diet of Omar would keep my Purvis lovin' belly full.

I think somebody gave me a couple of suggestions. I don't recall what they were - but you are welcome to suggest away again. I need to be entertained. I am too ADD to just sit here and work all day!!!


AUSTRALIAN PINK FLOYD WAS AWESOME, by the way. If they come to your city, go see them. I couldn't help but sit there and think that if they didn't perform this wonderful music live, we might never hear it performed live again during our lifetime. The real Floyd has gone their separate ways. I still retain hope that they will re-group and tour one more time before I die. Clearly they are no Warrant, Nowheregirl, but they are still pretty damn good.

Take some time SOON and sit down with a beer or a glass of wine and listen to the entire album Dark Side of the Moon from beginning to end. It is beautiful. It contains heavy jazz influences, psychadelic rock, classical influences and even some operatic components. It really is genius and it explains why this has been on the album charts longer than any other album in history (I believe that is true although you may want to google it before you quote me). Anyway, do it.

Oh my. I will try my best to uphold the honor and duties inherent in this position, lest I also be scrapped.

I've returned the favor over at Recreational Use. You tickle me.

I prefer to spark up a bowl and listen to Pink Floyd, but hey, to each his own. ;)

With all the new, younger ladies hanging around here, I'd better keep my pencil sharp.
Or perhaps freshen my lipstick.
In the meantime, Flamingo darling, stop by my place and see why you'd better start growing a mustache if you don't have one already.
I've also left one of your favorite little treats there. Alas, it is non-exclusive.

I listened to Dark Side of the Moon a couple of years ago. I bought it for my son thinking he might like it. We listened to it perfectly straight of course. My son (12 at the time)said the album was OK but since he heard all the 'parts' on the first listen there was no reason to ever hear it again! Shocker? I was surprised! Talk about disection capabilities...

Yes, as I do own the album, I've listened to 'Dark Side Of The Moon' several times, including straight from begining to end. Yes, It's awsome. I also love the album "Ummagumma", and one of my favorite songs from that album is, "Several Furry Creatures Sitting in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict". I saw Roger Waters live, and it was spectacular. It was a tribute to Sid Barrett (or however you spell Syd Barrett. Is it Sid, or Syd?) It was years ago, which probably made me late teens -early 20's. (I can't remember exactly) I was by myself, (no one would come with me) sitting between two burnt out old timers. The image was hysterical. Anyway, I love Pink Floyd and I think their album recordings are superb, meaning they are always crisp and clean. I think the 'Division Bell' album is underated.

I have free tickets for a special screening of the film 'The Producers' tonight. Being in the biz and all, I get these sort of perks.

Love ya,

PDD.

Maybe we could get Crall to play us some Floyd on his accordion. That would be the nipple on the tit of my life.
