Mike is fast, that's for sure. I'd never manage to open a vacuum cleaner and retrieve that doughnut within 10 seconds, let alone 5. Then again, I have no clue how to get a doughnut in there in the first place either...
Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...

From the FAQ:
 

General

How do I become a Prog Reviewer/Special Collaborator?
"Prog reviewers" are people who have been identified by the site’s owners as regularly contributing high quality reviews of a diverse range of bands and albums.

"Special collaborators" also regularly submit high quality reviews, but in addition they participate in (or have participated in) the running of the site.

You would normally become a Prog Reviewer or Special Collaborator by invitation from the site owners. If however, you feel you have met the following criteria, and would like to be considered for induction as a Prog Reviewer, send a Private Message (PM) to "Atkingani" (the Collaborator Manager) making your case.

NOTE: It's important to bear in mind that the following criteria are solely for general guidance, and do not constitute any sort of prerequisites or guarantee of acceptance. Also, that although applications can be submitted at any time, the processing of applications will be done only a few times each year, so please do not be impatient.

  • Submit at least 30 well composed reviews, which talk in some detail about each album. Ideally, the albums covered will be spread across a range of bands and sub-genres, and will not simply focus on those in the top 100. If possible, try to do a sequence of at least 5 albums by one of these "lesser-known" bands.
  • Contribute one or more band biographies for bands on the site who do not presently have biographic details. (With a little time and research, these can be prepared quite easily, even if you are not too familiar with the band. Do not however simply copy the words from other people’s work. Collate the facts, then present them in your own words.)
  • Participate constructively in the forum, offering intelligent contributions and avoiding becoming embroiled in personal battles with other members. (When applying, make sure to mention both your reviewer name AND forum ID).
  • If you can obtain the agreement of a current Prog Reviewer or Special Collaborator to support your request, that will also help.

To become a Special Collaborator, you will normally need to have been a Prog Reviewer first. Prog Reviewers who are willing to contribute in some way to the running of the site should contact Tony R giving details of the type of function you would be willing to undertake.

Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.
