Then there's 5 years for all the permits needed from the EPA, DOT, HUD, HEW, DOD, FBI, EPA again, PETA, your Uncle Ted.......
And of course it must ultimately be approved at:

The Court of the CRIMSON KING!!!!!

Man, what a flash from the past that one is...good times, gooood times.

I have one preinstalled from the factory of G.O.D. Enterprises. I believe its called "The Left Index Finger." It has millions of other uses and is handy on hard to reach boogers that form after riding in the rain for hours.

The gloves I never wear have a squeegee on them. But you have to wear a helmet too for that to do any good.

I've been ripping my old vinyls onto wav and mp3 format. 200 down.. only 100 to go. Pulled that one off the stack last week along with "Fripp and Eno". Ain't been listening to much else since.

Robert Fripp, heh heh. Most everyone else is 2nd tier. Don't even start me on the utter wasteland that is commercial radio.

What are you using to do it? One of those USB turntables? Roxio Spin Dr?

I just downloaded "Wired" by Jeff Beck two weeks ago.

Boy, does that take me back...

I've got that on cd. I bought it back when hardly anything was available on cd.

Remember back when the vinyl came out and then you had to wait about 6 months before it was available on cd?

Remember cool artwork, and lyrics, and "behind-the-scene" photos?

I just don't think Roger Dean would have gotten as famous if his Yes and Uriah Heap (and other) covers were limited to 5" X 5".

So you're saying Physical Graffiti wouldn't have had the same impact as a cd?

Besides, you can't separate seeds on a CD cover without spilling them all over the couch.
