Seeing this makes me kind of bummer’d that i never really learned how to play the piano. I took piano lessons until i was about fourteen. I was too lazy to practice, i never really got the hang of reading sheet music, but this is inspiring.
The only bit i’m able to properly play is the pop towards the end of the song
Folks, the Marillion single Thank you whoever you are (video above, unless WordPress decided to kill my HTML again) is at chart position number ten in UK and the highest new entry on the charts this week.
To keep the momentum (instead of the usual “up like a balloon, down like a tank” routine), if you haven’t bought the single(s), go and do that now.
The Thank You single exists in three versions, so if you’re feeling really freaky (or generous), you can buy more than one and you still get two different b-sides. All versions have the same single edit of Thank You Whoever You Are.
The Blue single is backed with the non-album track Say the word, a trippy little thing that should have been released by some flower-pop band in the summer of love, but instead got released by the hippies of Marillion. We can probably blame h for this one
The Magenta version has the most toys, featuring Most Toys from the Somewhere else album, the non-album-yet-fan-favourite Circular Ride (studio cut, i thinks) and a live rendition of The Wound.
The Green single is a DVD with and has, besides the already mentioned title track, Most Toys, a live and cover version of Toxic (yes, Britney Spears). These are audio-only. Then we have Thank you and Most Toys again, but as love videos. Having Toxic as a video would have been too much .
There is also a Red version which is an iTunes-only downloadable single with a live Most toys as b-side.
King Crimson: Level 5. Svengaa kuin seitsenjalkainen hirvi.
Det fanns en tid jag inte skulle ha tyckt om sån härn musik. Om jag vetat att den existerat. Och jag vet att mågen individ inte gillar sånt här, och antagligen aldrig kommer att. Bra så. Smaken är delad, som baken.
Jag undrar hur många sekunder av det här jag kunde spela det här där hemma (eller på jobbet) innan nåt hårt kom flygande. Men det ser nog rätt koolt ut där Fripp står i kostym och vevar gitarr som om det inte var nåt problem i världen. Eller de övriga herremännen med stränginstrument som tvättbrädor…. King Crimson spelar nog fet progg.
As a people, i’m afraid of Americans. I’m afraid of the stupidity and the Bush regime. I also believe that not all Americans are stupid. Actually, to just believe anything, for example that Americans are stupid, is non-scientific, and potentially stupid. However, based on the following incidential proof, i’m reassured in my belief that some are. Stupid. Uninformed. And stupid. Really, really stupid.
Rewrite: Why do some people think Americans are stupid? Because some Americans are:
I realize that i haven’t promoed The Show with Ze Frank at all, even though it’s one of the main reasons i fire up my iTunes player daily these days. The Show is one of those things that really shouldn’t be explained, just enjoyed, but hey, why do things like they should.
In The Show, Ze Frank talks with the viewers about politics, art, stupidity, existentialism, observations about all kinds, and duckies.
