    Lefsetz on Pork Tree
    ...figured the Porcupine Tree fans around here would enjoy this. While I'm not a huge fan of this band, some of their stuff ain't bad, and Lefsetz has a way of putting things...

    Great article. Totally hits the nail on the head for me. It's all about setting your mind free, baby.

    Who's this clown think he is? "Arriving Somewhere" is a waaaaay better song than "Radioactive Toy"....:D

    Prog gets love in the mainstream rock press. Will wonders never cease?

    Well said.

    Personally, I like both of those epic-length tracks just fine...in fact, they're my favorite tracks on their respective albums. But more to the point, he's spot-on when it comes to the appeal of prog (at least, for me). It takes me back to the "real me". The one who grew up in the 70s...the skinny, pimple-faced, stringy-haired one who hadn't a worry in the world.

    The real me, who never had to laugh at a client's poor jokes, or act like a responsible parent, or balance a budget.

    It makes me want to put on headphones, do a bong hit, and just chill.

    NP: the iTunes shuffle gods have seen fit to reward me with "The Sound of Muzak". Coincidence?

    That's funny, sure, but so is Troy's characterization of the source I linked to as the mainstream rock press.

    Actually, there's some good stuff on there from last week that I'll try to put together a post about later on if I can.
