Since Gumby Syndrome (aka Ehlers Danlos Syndrome) has been the bane of my existance lately, posting is going to be haphazard until everything settles down, which should be sometime later this week. Or next.

I'm on a Who kick again.

I think Love Reigns O'er Me is one of the best songs ever written. The Who is almost taking up as much space in my CD folders as Queen. I'm not sure why, but I tend to listen to more Who in the colder months. I'm sure if I were to go back and psychoanalyze my life I'd figure out why that is.

Whatever the reason, Quadrophenia is just as good now as it was then. Yeah, I was around the first time. I drove my family nuts with all my albums, the black lights, the Easy Rider poster that took up half my bedroom wall, and the gauchely beaded closet door. I had a really groovy bedroom. I really miss the psychedelic posters; I may someday start collecting them again. I'll pass on the inflatable furniture and Yardley "Canterbury Blue" lipstick this time around. Maybe a few inflatable pillows here and there, to really bring on the nostalgia.

I had this dream last night.

Innuendo is not my favorite Queen song, but it is my favorite Queen video. It was a strange dream, but if any movie about Freddie Mercury comes out and it's named Innuendo I will definitely go see it.

Did you see KISS on Letterman last night?

They performed Modern Day Delilah; it's a good hook for the CD. I have been a KISS fan since they started. It's been a long time, twenty years, since they have come out with a new album. I am really thrilled the drought has ended. Sonic Boom came out yesterday, and by this weekend I (hopefully) will have added it to my collection.

I'm still waiting on the details for the Nashville gig; as far as I know it's October 28 at the Sommet Center. I want tickets soooo bad, but finances are iffy.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - New Release

OK, it's great! I could use lots of words and describe the sounds, the clarity, the great mini-documentary...but it would soon just become so much yada, yada, yada... Just buy it already!

I also have Let It Be (with mini-documentary) and Revolver (with documentary), but my favorite has always been Sgt. Pepper.

Song Lyric Brain Blast #3

Yeah, it's been longer than I planned to get back to the SLBB, but here's your lyric for today. Don't forget to put on your sunscreen.

I’m so sick and tired of sitting talking to you

Yeah that’s right

You never tell me anything

that I wanna know ’bout your life.

The answer for SLBB #2 is All the Young Dudes, recorded by Mott the Hoople.

Song Lyric Brain Blast #2

While you're waiting for your latte, put you thinking caps on and fetch the song title to this lyric. (Do you really want that apple fritter? Really?)

And my brothers back at home with his Beatles and his Stones
We never got it off on that revolution stuff

Yesterdays answer: Smoke on the Water, recorded by Deep Purple.

Song Lyric Brain Blast #1

How's your brain today? How's your "music lyric/trivia/shouldn't you be working instead of wasting time at this lame website" mojo working?

This is how this works. I put a lyric fragment, you guess the song and the band. You get extra credit if you know who wrote it.

There's no prizes - hey, I'm no radio station!

They burned down the gambling house

It died with an awful sound

Funky Claude was running in and out

If you know the lyric, show off and post the answer!
