King Crimson is best classic prog band.

I like reading the reviews and opinions in general. Though we all know we can't agree with them all.

Not necessarily, Richard.  You should try hanging out in the political threads.  Wink

There are times I spent there when I was longing for a sharp stick in the eye.

Little did I suspect that the phrase would come into such popular use, like "whatever" and "get over it" (which even inspired an Eagles song!)
 
But many times it's used as a powerful physical line of words to make people relax about something in life which is horrific. Like for example...my friend's marriage is on a downslide because his wife cheats regularly. He is very down about it and those stupied words come out of his mouth.."It is what it is"...really? You're not gonna change that? You're not going to move on? So when the phrase is used in that way..I find it to be a pat on the back or someone kidding themselves. So that's where I'm going. People tend to use the saying to continue swimming in the mud which is a poor excuse to continue living and pretending life is fine as you paste a stupied phony smile on your face and allow everyone to screw you.

Wow!
 
I tune both of them out like I do with reality T.V. You know..those YES freaks in New Jersey from the 70's who rolled their eyes, played with their hair, smoked dope, and thought for some reason or the other that Jon Anderson was about to enter their soul into Heaven or a monastery? Besides...witches are a hoax! They just bring physical harm to innocent people like misfits in gangs do today. But I suppose the word witch is an excuse to rise above all of that?

Hi,
 
Honestly ... I don't know ... a bit of everything.
 
As a reviewer, knowing your product and what you are seeing is important ... but above all, knowing what YOUR feelings are about the film/music at hand is much more important.
 
I do my best to interpret these, despite some folks at PA not liking it.
 
All the arts, fit into areas that people either love it or hate it, or want to create laws against it. I consider myself part of the group that fights the establishment for their laziness and lack of ability to even do a manicure or pedicure -- not to mention remove the stentch that comes with it -- in order to allow the person to be seen ... and appreciated.
 
PA has a lot of good, that is not organized, and in the end, this is just a database, and nothing else, and a place like Wiki, is at least making an effort to organize all the gibberish in the database, so that anyone can find things better, more efficiently, and it fills a better niche, as an information tool.
 
The sad thing about ... just a database ... is that nothing in it will be kept, or used, or saved, in due time ... and a lot of work and appreciation will get wasted, the day that someone says ... we're wasting that much hard drive space? ... and ciao baby ... but then, isn't that the nature of the internet and "information" ... and at the very least, we know the artists will outive that stuff way more and better!
 
But I am not sure that anyone can organize and improve things any more ... and no one is getting paid to do it, which is the real issue in the end! Maybe start up a subscription service and hope that folks stick to it -- but that's scary in its own right, and too many fans will leave tomorrow for a different pasture ... !!! ... that's a fan for you!
 
But there are some excellent folks here ... and I hate to see their knowledge and appreciation and work wasted here, there, or anywhere! And some of the knowledge goes even further ...

Once again. This is a site for  reviewing albums. It doesn't pretend to be anything more than that. It is what it is.
