    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Nursery Cryme So great, from the opening barn burner, “Musical Box” to the underrated closer, “Fountain of Salmacis”.

    Trespass “Stand up and fight for you know we are right we must strike at the lies that have spread like disease through our minds...”

    I’d actually recommend going backwards from Selling England by the Pound ...but yeah, if prog ain’t your thing, don’t force yourself. They are pretty much prog incarnate during the PG years. Many consider ...Lamb... to be the pinnacle of prog, and it’s as impenetrable as it gets.

    Watches

    Anyone know anything about Fossil Watches? Good/bad/indifferent? Relic? I was initially looking for an LCD/analog watch of the likes of this, but ended up falling in love with the looks of this one, due to (a) its almost all-blackness, and ( the cool use of the wood, and the way the numbers drift outside of the face. Who knows, maybe I'll get more than one. I'm thinking of getting this one, too (again, due to its almost all-blackness), but I'm worried that the red "throb" might be visually distracting. Thoughts? Anyone know of any other companies that make that analog watch on an LCD face with the "throb"? I'm a high-tech guy, so I should have a high-tech watch. I'm happy with my Guess watch for every day use, but I want a nice one for meetings and dressing up and such.

    I hate people. I should probably live where there aren’t people.

    The rest of the albums range from completely abstract and experimental to straight ahead almost-jazz.

    Kitty Talk

    Feel free to use this thread to discuss anything kitty-related. There are several of us here who love cats, and those that don't can just ignore this whole thread. I just told my sister to send me another cat.

    Coffee Drinkers?

    I tend to use this adage in reverse. If it’s good as a latte, it’s good as coffee plus creamer (I asked for almond milk lattes, so I cream with various nut milks). Besides, I don’t need it to be steamed milk hot. But that’s just me, I’m not trying to change anyone else’s mind. Please continue to enjoy your little hearts in your foam. They’re cute. 💜 So...yeah, I’m a French press guy, too. I tend towards French and espresso roasts.

    The Live Music Thread

    Eye of Every Storm is a stone cold classic.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Not today, but this week, I started learning JSP. Didn't realize that was something different than Javascript (which run on the browser), but rather, Java Server Pages (which run on the server). Somehow, I've managed to spend most of my career avoiding all but the most trivial GUI work. (I usually do backend work. [cue Steve]) And I already was told I could call myself an expert once I learned how to do Decorators. I think she was being sarcastic, but who cares, the guys who usually do the GUI work are too busy trying to upgrade all the code from Java7 to Java8, and I'm pretty sure I can get it all done in a couple days. So...pride.

    Disen Gage, Libertage -- egad, this is superb. It's like if you took King Crimson's scat-based improvs, and made music out of them. Definitely listening to the rest of their catalog. https://disengage.bandcamp.com/album/libertage

    Tangerine Dream Classic Extensions—very subtly remixed Tangerine Dream—it’s quaffably delicious! I’m already on my second.

    Daw! I would hug him and cuddle him and call him Lovecraft.

    Mt. Mountain, Dust -- so good. I've listened -- and liked, and probably buying -- their entire catalog, but Dust is their masterpiece. It's like Tool on quaaludes, with a bit of Desert Sessions thrown in. https://mtmountain.bandcamp.com/album/dust
