last few days o' buggy wotr gameplay has had the following song playing on a loop in our head.

sure, play game is nothing like turn-of-century coal mining, but still feels more like work than entertainment at the moment and is not like we got control o' the crazy connections our sleep deprived brain makes.

on the positive side, compared to the "songs" which usual spawn inexplicable and get stuck in our head, am calling this a win... though we gotta admit that for the past few months, in the hall of the mountain king is the music (not song) which plagues us unbidden and most frequent. given the theme o' peer gynt, this subconscious selection is disquieting on multiple levels. 

HA! Good Fun!

I post this not so much because I'm all that enamored of the song (or band) but ... I guess they've really become some kind of global phenomenon. After "Dynamite" they appear to be moving towards making most of their songs sung in English. Which, as a non-Korean speaker, I find a little less charming (and I still have a hard time understanding some of their English spoken singing). But ... supposedly they're the first band since the Beatles to have 3 albums reach #1 on Billboard in a year. Special UN Assembly envoy for the S. Korean President (edit: re: Sustainable Development Goals). Billions of YT views. They've been around long enough now that most of their members are in their late 20's. The power of youthful fans - and social/internet media access - can be a powerful thing. And I think it's a good thing. Music, as it can/does, bringing the world together on global scale. I can dig it.

oh, and david lee roth is retiring

is unfair, but the first thing we thought when we saw the picture from the linked article were how much david lee roth looks like maskless darth vader at end o' rotj. is more the complete absence o' color than anything and am hopeful he doesn't have health concerns as is hinted at in the article. 

HA! Good Fun!

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Reunion of good ol' 90's. I used to love them for their entire too brief existence. :wub:

I don't know why they always make me think of this other band. They are not the same (other than the slightly dark, gothic look), but maybe I just bought the cd's in the same time period. When cd's started to replace vinyls...

Love this other band too.  :yes: 

I really should digitize all my goth CDs one of these days, sometimes I miss them quite a lot.

Heh, Maiden kind of ripped this one off.

For the so 80's music I can't believe it.. and Peter Cushings final appearance on film before his death.

Favourite Metallica song.  Oddly suitable for listening to at work.

Used to listen to this on my old iRiver player so often (1 GB means not that many songs..) back in the lab.  Nothing like poorly singing this at 11 PM alone in a SPARC lab. :lol:
