Re: Wyzards?

Any chance of this going back on tour? I missed the '97 show in Baltimore. I had to take Mom to church. Didn't make it back to the epic Parkville Colosseum in time.

Re: Music for Four Hands: Glass Hammer Fans Explained

I told a guy at work once that I loved Glass Hammer. He told me he was huge Phil Keaggy fan. Not huge enough, apparently.

Interesting topic. Probably too hard for me to do. I grew up on my older sister's prog in the 70's, but moved away from it during most of the 80's. I was fully into hair metal (not in image or lifestyle only as a music interest), and clung onto Rush through the horrid (digital, natch) synthesizer ye...

First was Billy Joel - Glass Houses. Second was Xanadu soundtrack, just to illustrate the longevity of my lack of taste. Nowadays, I buy in bunches (to minimize shipping costs) across a wide variety of genres and subgenres (to minimze boredom) . The shipment currently trickling in from various place...

I was never a fan of thrash or hardcore metal. :-) Even in my most nerdiest pre-marriage years, my walls were clinically white and bare with not even so much as a Yes or study hard poster.

Maxwell. You would have recognized him if the picture showed holding his silver hammer. I didn't recognize him, so I guessed Planck. I'm sure it cost me at least two nerd points. I've already filed my grievance with the webmaster.

*awestruck* I yield to you, Majesty! Command me. My paltry abilities are at your service. I thought I'd be about average. They seem to rate computer nerdliness and scientific trivia heavily. Knowledge of the periodic table of elements doesn't mean that I'm a nerd. It means that when f=mg gets re-ta...

2% scored higher (more nerdy),
1% scored the same, and
97% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD!!!

Silly rhetorical question

So. Tonight, would you rather watch the Presidential debate at Belmont or the DVD of Glass Hammer at Belmont?

Which do you think does more for the glory of God?

But aren't samples of the album enough to judge by ? That was certainly the case for your album. Only a few seconds were necessary to know that I'd like something that sounded like a mix of Audivisions and Vital Signs. That the actual disc was more progressive than I expected was a bonus. Unfortuna...

if people are not willing to pay for an artists music (for whatever reason: too expensive, music stinks, etc...), then they should be willing to do without. I agree, but it's difficult to tell if something stinks without hearing it first. Where is the justification for stealing it ? Clearly, there ...

Actually, that's what I was responding to. I saw it as a contradiction in your reasoning that you *do* see value in the intangible products I wouldn't put it that way. I'm merely acknowledging the possibility that intangile products may have value to some people. If some black metal band offered th...

I also know for a fact that others have illegally downloaded it, and while I'm not materially hurt by that fact (as I sell so few anyway) It's good that you understand this market reality. Many artists don't and waste away hours counting the imaginary money they think they've lost from downloading....
