Progressive Rock.

King Crimson, Rush, Genesis.

These are the bands with pictures over the definition of “Pretense“, one of the worst offenses of Douchebags everywhere. I mean, I can take some proggy songs, some of the time, but when some frat boy plunks $5 into the jukebox, I pray that we aren’t in store for 80 minutes of rock opera crooning and over the top drum solos. [[1]]Although I gotta admit, you get your band for your buck with the 10 min+ songs.[[1]]

Prog Rock is one thing, but I am not ashamed to admit: Pink Floyd… is a great band. Ever since I was first enthralled by “Time”, and the rest of Dark Side of the Moon (the pinnacle of stoner rock){{1}}, The Wall (We Don’t Need No Education), both super selling mega classic rock blockbusters.

Pink Floyd’s tribute to George Orwell’s story, “Animal Farm”, this album has a short, but sweet tracklist:

  1. Pigs on the Wing, Pt. 1 (1:25)
  2. Dogs (17:08)
  3. Pigs (Three Different Ones) (11:28)
  4. Sheep (10:20)
  5. Pigs on the Wing, Pt. 2 (1:25)

Songs there are few, but each of the 4 animals get over 10 minutes of haunting singing and guitar solos. Sung from the perspective of the animals, songwriters Roger Waters and David Gilmour imbue each animal with a negative trait. Waters—the mastermind behind the spiral of despair that is The Wall—wrote all of the songs except one.

Except you can't see the sad face. Because the screen is dead.

Except you can't see the face. Because the screen is dead.

I’m supposed to be working hardcore on my project, this site and stepping up my e-communication game this break. Probly not gonna happen. My main laptop’s motherboard is fried. Screen won’t turn on and Mice/trackpad doesn’t work. Happened right before (literally) I was gonna present my final. I WAS continuing on with my old laptop for awhile, until it stopped accepting a charge a few days ago. Being computerless sucks. It magically works now though. But I know it’s only temporary.
