It would be great if I could make that...and get some Indian food beforehand. Any of you C-town folk know a fine Indian restaurant? There's a good one called India Mahal on Brainard Road right where East Brainard hits it. I've been trying to get there for years and finally got around to it a month a...

That's a bit surprising about The Singer. My aunt recommended that to me years ago but I've never picked it up. Need to do that. Last books I read (parts of) were Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver and Gary Wills' What Jesus Meant . Wills' book is uniformly interesting and though-provoking even though he...

Re: YES live at Montreux DVD out

Tomorrow then. CC is on Gunbarrel right? Oh wait that's Best Buy. Well, I'll do my level best to no...

Which made me think: how about something similar on the next GH effort? It could be Julie Babb warning Shreddy's new missus about the dangers of being married to a prog musician. :twisted:

Just heard (most of) Lifeson's solo album last night on Progressive Concepts, the album-oriented show that follows mine (after a gap) on DLBN. He played Geddy's solo My Favorite Headache and Lifeson's Victor back-to-back. I'd really like to know the story behind the Shut Up song that was a hoot. So ...

By the way, if you'd like a taste of the new Sola Scriptura release, my buddy The Lurker played two tracks on last Friday's (1/26/07) version of "The Healing Colors of Sound" which is, surprise surprise, an hour of Spock's Beard and related music on The Dividing Line Broadcast Network. It's archived...

Christmas Tunes by Prog Artists

Hey folks, For Christmas Day edition of Retune the Sky (and the two weeks following on the archive) I'm going to play the proggiest Christmas music I can find for my little Internet radio gig. But what with final exams (I give them, I don't take them...insert evil laugh here) and the continued frenz...

Re: The Illusionist

Incredible flick! Blew "Hollywoodland" away. I hope Ed Norton and Paul Giamatti get oscar nods. Errr, what blew "Hollywoodland" away? Oh, The Illusionist. Read the Subject, esteban, read the Subject. Interesting that we have two films this year about magicians from long before the age of David Copp...

It is a cool idea, as long as they don't play it as a pre-Columbian "Rambo". I didn't see any kind of a release date, but then again, just hitting a movie preview site caused me to blow about 30 minutes of class prep time :oops: :wink:

It does indeed rock! But there's a legend that when Tony Levin took it out for a Peter Gabriel recording session, the producer took one look and said "put it away." Innovation, anyone? Luckily he didn't. I find it curious that beyond Tony Levin, so few "known" progressive artists use the Chapman Sti...

LOL! Now, now, what happened next was my favorite tune off Shadowlands so don't make more of it than it was! I just enjoyed your "untitled opening track" and wanted to hear more. I remember when I saw Crimson in Cincy, before The Power to Believe was released, they opened with the then-unreleased "D...

Show Opener

Hey folks! I keep forgetting to ask about the show opener (matinee). That was a fine bit of playing, and when Steve launched into the opening of "Lisette" I was actually a bit disappointed! Not that Lisette was next - may it never be! - but that the opening bit was ending. Walk-on jam? Field-testing...

It's Charles Villiers Stanford, the famous teacher of Holst and Vaughn Williams. It's basically the first verse (first letter) of Psalm 119. Thanks from me too. We don't have that one, but we do have one of his operas. He also wrote a history of music which I found in the library as well. Cool. Spe...
