Fog Lake - Farther Reaches

Been finding super independent self-released music on bandcamp.com lately. It takes some digging, but there is some good stuff to find if you try.

An excruciatingly boring webinar covering our change from paper-based time sheets to Oracle PeopleSoft's on-line system. Since about half of my fellow State employees don't even use computers in their daily jobs, this is at a very basic level.

Oh lordy lord...

Listening to Cover 2 Cover, a "covers" album by Morse-Portnoy-George. Pretty good, they sound like they've had fun.

Is it better than Flying Colors? IMO Flying Colors was rather disappointing.

It certainly has an eclectic selection of tracks. Anyone who would cover both The Osmonds and King Crimson on the same album deserves some credit! :lol:

Not so much now, but last night: The Who at Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester, NH with wife & daughter.

Yes, Pete & Roger are old (Pete turns 68 in May, Roger 69 this week). They made fun of if all night long. That said, they've still got IT, and the show stirred the same emotions as the supposed "Farewell Tour" of 1989 (The Who at full volume & throb in a venue like Giants Stadium 1989 remains my touchstone as to concert quality/emotion/you had to be there). This show was a full Quadrophenia followed by a short set of "best-of". Roger designed all the staging and vids and turned Quadrophenia from the story of one angsty Mod trying to fit into early-60's Mod culture to Roger & Pete's angst against the world, and, surprisingly enough, it worked. The screens were laid out as a scooter's headlight and turn lights, pushing the Quadrophenia theme.

Roger can still go get those high notes when required, saving most of his wind for "Love Reign O'er Me" and "Won't Get Fooled Again", and nailed both. The show even brought in loving tributes to Ox (John Entwistle) and Keith Moon. Ox's bass solo from "5:15" was obviously recorded in HD at some show before he died and played on the main video screen (no one else can make a bass sing like that), while old film of Keith singing "Bellboy" came in later. During the bits where Keith was singing on film, Roger's actions clearly showed the sense of loss they all felt after his death.

One funny bit was a display on the video screens prior to the band coming on, stating "Roger is deathly allergic to smoke, so he'd really appreciate it if you all stuck to brownies".

Daughter loved every second of the show; the real reason for the spendy tickets and hotel room. Most likely the last chance to see them at even a decent percentage of what they once were, and there are certain things from my past that I want to transmit to the future so that the memories are not forgotten. We've checked off Genesis and The Who, next up is Tull (if it ever happens, and Ian's voice is but a fragment of what it used to be). When I left this show I had the same feeling I had during the 2007 Genesis show: I'm glad I saw the old warriors turn back the clock just one more time. Stuff like this means something when you're 49. Based on what I saw, most of those at the show were boomer-era families bringing their kids to see a piece of their past. Thankfully this was no oldies show.

Led Zeppelin's "Celebration Day" album. Amazon had it for $2 today and I've never listened to any Led Zep before. Not sure what I think yet, but it does not suck.

Buckethead, Brain and Melissa meet Ornette Coleman. Buckethead playing along and providing support for Melissa and Brain. It's very rare. Buckethead usually just does solo stuff and owns the stage..

Mostly podcasts.

I'm listening to "NSFW" and "The Tech Report Podcast" - interesting discussion on the PS4 innards. :)

Whoa... I need that! Looks like there's a reissue available from TDRS now. Damn you, there goes 50 bucks. :lol:

(Since you're obviously into Buckethead/Brain, I assume you've heard all the Praxis stuff?)

Not sure how you can live on this planet and not have heard any Led Zep, even if only by accident. I suppose there may be some primitive native tribes in the Indonesian jungles who haven't, but that's probably about it!

Oh yeah. I come to Buckethead from Zorn and we, my son and I, bought the Japanese "Bucketheadland" he produced, in 92 I believe. It was after that he fell in with Bill Laswell, another Zorn musician and Praxis was born.

Since you mention it, "Kashmir" does sound familiar.

Ohh, that is a nice album! Regrettably my favorite song on the album is Ghosts of Perdition and nothing else on the album really sounds like that. (*´;ェ;`*) It's still good tho.

"The Smoking Podcast" episode 59 - brought to you by Matt Farah, Zack Klapman and the crew of "The Smoking Tire."

TST pretty much makes the most enjoyable podcast I listen to these days. The funny, authentic, and pretty honest talk about cars and car culture makes the daily slog at work a little more bearable.

Re-listening to "Mass Effect 2" OST. Awesome music from an awesome game (perhaps the last great game in history of Bioware). Every time I get to "Normandy Reborn" track, I can instantly visualize this scene:

Pretty nice soundtrack... Overall not as good as original, though :wink: but at least you can actually buy it on iTunes and other places.,,

This is the second time Pandora has played this song in the last 15 minutes on TWO different stations... interesting. Apparently it really wants me to listen to Lindsey Stirling. /shrug, I can't argue, good stuff.
