Unintentional Brilliance

Gotta get my head together, man.

These guys are actually fuckin' Sorcerers Of Genius.

If you operate under th' "they hate us for our freedom" thing, what could be more brilliant than to remove the source of their hatred?

Woah! I've got some thinking to do.

Off topic: B-unit, did you see NPR's list of 300 songs for the 20th century?

We are wanting your thoughts.

Definitely a thought-provoking comment.... Did you catch the Cheney / Scarace mash-up video? If not, it's here.

BTW, I finally checked out the tunes posted on your blog. Each one is better than the last. Monday Wedding may be my favorite, but I have to say that the last minute of Station Road is friggin' mind-boggling. I simply have to hear that one on headphones sometime cranked to an ear-drum damaging volume. Interestingly, I'd saved those four tunes into a single directory and just cued them up in a player. So, as suddenly as Station Road ends, This Goodbye starts up immediately after, which makes for an interesting transition, perhaps adding something to both tunes. It brings up the critical notion of how artists order songs on their CDs. For example, I've read that many artists (Paul Simon comes to mind) lose sleep over this issue -- which is understandable.

a.g.- on it, man. On it.

bsupwoeihg- thanks, man. Station Road is definitely one of the good ones. Quite surreal indeed. And we never really know what happens with this dude. Th' universe wacks him upside the head one way or another.

I wanted those systems-music sections to sound like the keyboard version of 80's King Crimson, all these seemingly random but tightly interlocking time signatures. I even approximated that little Linndrum "clink" sound they would have used. With all those data-fed sounding electric pianos it's about as close as I get to Radiohead. And then it folds in on itself with backwards stuff fading in. I do very much recommend headphones on this shit. And some blotter.

Fuck, that is a really good transition. Woah.

Back in the album days it was funner to sequence because you had four important pressure points, 1st song, last song side 1, first song side 2 and last song.

th' fuckin' cheney shit is dope.
