Someone else who disagrees with me:

Right now I'm watching "Keeping Score" on TV, and tonight's episode is about Gustav Mahler. It mentioned an incident from his childhood in which he stopped a synagogue service because he wanted to hear a polka instead of the plainchant the cantor was singing!

Not all that funny!

I, myself, suffer from a crippling anxiety disorder, and also receive psychiatric care.

I was just trying to indicate a difference in musical tastes.

Anyways, that new Target ad on TV reminded me of one of my favorite songs from my childhood, a song which I'd completely forgotten, called "Pictures of Matchstick Men" by Status Quo, which song appears, to me, to constitute a complaint by the narrator concerning his girlfriend's use of narcotic substances:

Cheers, mate!

So, you are saying that drugs are always unhealthy?

Ann Ashtray:

I was trying to start something beautiful by starting this thread.

Why are you trying to turn it into something tedious?

I'm just not going to participate in that discussion.

I play in a space rock band, none of us needs drugs to find that kind of groove..... This kind of spiritual psych is so much more interesting than a bunch of peyote trippin' deadheads......

However Jerusalem is the kind of album that mixes both elements...... Rare to find something like that??

The Watcher:

I put some of my music online (I'm a non-psychedelic solo act, mainly punk folk and blues), but I forgot where I put it. I'll try to dig it up and share it with you.

Do you have any music online that you'ld like to share?

Hey, c'mon, folks, why the silence?

If you don't like my music, let me know.

I'm a Sonic Youth fan, so you know I can take it!

Not a problem! I way understand!

But, my challenge wasn't addressed to you alone. Why haven't ANY of the readers of this thread commented on my music, positively or negatively?

C'mon, folks, I wana hear it!

If you think my music sucks, tell me.

If you have advice on what I could have done better (and I've definately improved "Moral Authority"), let me know.

If you love it, I can take that, too!

I imagine people are being polite. But as you asked for it, I'll just strike in with the lyrics: they are unbelievably self-involved and rubbish (meaning bad).

Thanks for your honesty.

I realize the lyrics are self-involved, but, then again, that's me.

I was actually trying to speak for my generation, but I guess I confused my generation with myself.

I am grateful for your insight.

Gllce:

I just listened to the songs again, and I couldn't believe how my vocals lagged behind the beat on "Taxpayer Blues".

I'll try to do better next time.

Gllce:

I also noticed that I (accidentally) added an extra bar in the first interval of "Moral Authority", but I think it sounds cool, as it adds to the psychological tension within the song.

What do you think?
