Facts 1, 2 & 3

Post by MayorOfLongview » Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:02 pm

Fact One: Fred and I are writing new material for a new (duh) Glass Hammer album.

Fact Two: Thus far, the material is VERY proggy.

Speculation:
Epic length tracks? Maybe....
Concept? At least one...

Fact Three: Hammond, Moogs and Trons? Absolutely. Tons of it.

Fact Five: One of the aforementioned Facts is carrying a bomb that is set to explode in 0900 hours. If Fact Seven does not find and dismantle this bomb on time, all of Hammerdom as we know it may be doomed to endless repeats of album fragments of the Lost Hammeronian Era between Evermore and Lex Rex.

Now there's a 'concept' worthy of prog.

Beware those concept albums. I hear that they are "gateway art", which can lead to other, more sinister pursuits like novel writing ... :D

Hmm, can that be fact 6? I feel like I'm breaking the thread if I don't add a fact.

Very excited about a new album.

FACT SEVEN, (a young, dashing philosopher) BOLDLY RUSHES INTO THE ROOM, CRYING OUT:

STOP RIGHT THERE, FACT TWO! From dramatically misapplying the words of Kant, I have deduced the existence of explosives (made from the most dangerous of raw PE comments) hidden in your CONCEPT, in that great lacuna where your intuition should be! Your silly red cane doesn't fool me - "THOUGHTS WITHOUT INTUITIONS ARE EMPTY, CONCEPTS WITHOUT INTUITIONS ARE BLIND!"

Now thanks to the interference of Super Philosopher Fact, all other facts may continue in peace and harmony, progging out forevermore in the awesome trajectory that GH did follow (away from the dangerous mysterious unknown after Evermore) through the Best Albums Ever, from Lex Rex to COA to 3 Cheers, and even further, Beyond such a Great Beyond as this, with this newer STILL UNKNOWN concept to replace the False Traitor Kantian Concept hiding in the Mayor's words!

Fact Eight: Fact seven came because it suspected that fact five frightened the conversation to a halt with its threat of destruction of time and good prog.

Fact Nine: Fact Eight and I strongly suspect that, in fact, Fact Seven only made you all more afraid of carrying it on.

Fact Ten: Aren't I too indecisive to be called a fact?

Fact Eleven is confused
Luke 6:27-31
27 "But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
