"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Well, I'm a huge Gorillaz fan, so I'd suggest Plastic Beach.

Currently listening to MC Chris right now, for some reason. "Tractor Beam" It's an odd track mostly about sex, but it involves some of my favorite lyrics: "All this sex affects my syntax." Not sure if it's brilliant or not, but I just like that sentence. :haha:

I've been listening to "The Dance" by Fleetwood Mac. It's a live album, the live reunion album. It was a short reunion, as Christine McVie left the band again shortly thereafter, and I love her songs and her singing, but still, The Dance is excellent. Notably, it features Lindsey Buckingham not singing falsetto like he usually does on their studio albums, and his voice is POWERFUL. I don't know why he doesn't sing that way all the time, instead of his womanly falsetto. He sounds great when he sings like a man. Stevie, on the other hand, didn't really extend herself as much as she's known too. This is especially noticeable in "Rhiannon", where at points where she'd hit a high, shrill shriek in other recorded live versions, her voice drops in pitch instead on this recording. It's still an excellent recording though, featuring the so-called "lost verse".

Highlights are "The Chain", "Everywhere", "Silver Springs", "Go Your Own Way", and "Don't Stop". "Landslide" is the most popular track, along with Silver Springs, but it doesn't interest me much, compared to the studio version.

Finally getting around to seeing what's up with The Real McKenzies and the Pogues. Starting with Loch'd n' Loaded.

I wonder if I could do a section of the pirate show dedicated to piratey/mythical water beasts?

On my way home from work last night, I listened to WASH FM's Disco Saturday night. Kept me awake on that late-night drive!
