I crashed my car while listening to FATES WARNING's STILL REMAINS.
Car was a write off. Solved that problem. Lol
Over many years exploring the world of Dark-Gothic Progressive Rock/Metal has been an unbelievably great experience. Colour me Goth all over! I'm hooked.

Only real superstition is that significant moments (returning home from a long trip, graduating school) will become empty memories later on if 'As Sure as Eggs Is Eggs' from "Supper's Ready" isn't playing in my head.

Not really. Just try not to listen to a good thing too much or often. Want it to sound fresh the next time.

I insist on the 13th Floor Elevators while looking for love in an elevator. If a hotel is missing it's 13th floor, an aisle missing row 13, a seat missing it's 13th repository. I suggest that if someone has made such an elementary numerical error, what worse things have not been considered? (Think Van Halen's M &Ms).

This is fun. I always ask for my oxygen when boarding a flight craft. Ultimate natural high that requires no effort. Yet worries others. Very punk rock. Where was I?

Oh, yes 13. Anyone suspicious of this number (and announces it) I'll tell 'em I'll compensate by playing the new Sabbath album. In their honour.

Or  Triskakaphobie by Present. (Fear of the number 13).

I Ain't Superstitious by Howlin' Wolf and / or the Jeff Beck Group.

Superstition by S. Wonder always perks me up. Anything for a laugh and irrationality is good.

Music played while something significant and possibly dangerous is going down.... well, on Sept 11 2001 just before the 2nd plane went into the towers I had been listening to Burning The Hard City by Djam Karet. But that was probably a coincidence. Since then I have been in tall buildings and have listened to that album. Lightning did not strike twice. Well, not me anyway,

I have yet to test the Scottish play out on actors as per that Blackadder episode. There's time yet, I'm sure.

I suspect that listening to Clutching At Straws when you are clutching at straws would be foolhardy or wise or both or neither but would be nothing more than clutching at straws. Even if you pay me I will not listen to Barclay James Harvest's Octoberon all the way through. Playing track five from John Cale's Paris 1919 album during a Dream Theaer performance is unlucky. I once purchased a Magma album and survived, but I have not ridden a horse since that day. I strongly believe it is extremely unlucky to review an album until you've heard it at least once. Listening to Genesis causes amnesia. I broke my arm falling off my motorcycle while riding to college one morning in 1978 and a mere 29 years later I ordered Phideaux's Doomsday Afternoon from Amazon and didn't like it one bit - that cannot be a coincidence... stranger things are at play than can be dreamt of in Heaven and Earth, or things in your philosophy Horatio (to paraphrase Kismet Hardy), messing with retroactive power like that is beyond our understanding or belief... I think playing all Flower Kings albums simultaenously would probably result in you never being born at all ... the last person to attempt this is standing right he- well he was here a minute ag- who? What? I would advise anyone against going swimming until at least one hour after listening to Pawn Hearts and saying the title of Yes's fifth album in reverse word-order will summon the devil (but he won't turn up owing to a prior engagement). Listening to Genesis causes déjà vu.


This was so entertaining

Yes. This was one of the better responses of 2013. I recall one of my sides splitting open.

I, on the other hand, am Fortean about my progressive rock.

I never drive while Peter Hammill is singing....

Oh wait, I never listen to Peter Hammill singing.
