Sounds to me like you would be more of a fan of "Snortin Whiskey" also, you know it is a cover song right?
yea, bruh, i know it's not a PT original but is that even relevant? the band i was in 20 years ago stopped covering Santeria for the same reason: its pretty gross. i guess you can like it if you want, but not #ThisGuy. after all, what is taste, if nothing more than the jagged outline of one person's incomplete perspective. :unsure:

I have never, nor do I condone, the hitting of any women. However, if you view history/music etc. with such a myopic lens you are prone to "Tossing out the baby with the Bathwater". Lastly, I liked the whole album, not just that song. By your measure we probably shouldn't be listening to half the music in history. Your mileage may vary!✌️

eh, like i originally said, if u are comfortable with what it celebrates and quite proudly glorifies, it's not a bad song and has some hot licks (aside note, why do we call em licks???) but i am not comfortable with it. #shrug

NEway i realized i didn't slot Dark Side of the Moon in my list, but then again our moon is pretty pathetic compared to all the cool moons out there in the solar system. so much other moons have all these cool features all our moon did was smash with us and get a free ride for a few billion years. mf'er won't even show us its backside.

europa is such a cool moon. like it could have liquid water underneath. gravitational effects of its planet jupiter and some of Jupiter's other Moons (including Ganymede, a moon so sick, it is bigger than the planet Mercury), Callisto (another huge butt moon bigger than ours, another one that might even have water as well) and Io (thats i to the o), a pizza coloured dude with heckin sulfuric volcanoes) cause internal movement for the body, meaning there might not only be the biggest ocean currently known in the universe there, but it could very well have geothermic vents. #wow #whoa Geothermic vents mean that there could potentially be life there, dawg. our stupid idiot moon can't do none of that, it's just barren except for the garbage we leave after each visit

how about that Titan? the biggest moon of Saturn, its so big its gravity helps smaller moons from crashing into the planet - it is literally saving their lives, homieo. culd our moon do that? pff, he too pathetic to do anything of the sort. not only that, but titan be the only moon with a proper greenhouse effect going on (has a atmosphere) and oceans made out of liquid methane (and again, might have liquid water). could our moon (waste of space debris that it is) have an atmosphere? the flimsy little dust bubble it has around it hardly counts it's so weak. what we got, tides? boring.

so anyway, pink floyd shoulda written about any moon other than ours. maybe they will someday and finally get that #1 download

All good Rob. We are all the same and all different. I am personally uncomfortable using the outdated social term Mulatto and you embrace it, different strokes ✌️

I don't normally post on stuff like this, but when I do, I really like it.

  • King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Nonagon Infinity
  • The Blues Brothers Motion Picture Soundtrack (lol it's really amazing and shaped my musical tastes as a kid)
  • Pink Floy - Animals
  • Guns-n-Roses - Appetite for Destruction
  • Pearl Jam - Ten
  • Gomez - In Our Gun
  • Blind Melon - Nico
  • Aerosmith - Permanent Vacation

I mean I could list any Floyd album, any Gomez album, and almost any Gizz album... but those stick out I suppose. Fun. :)

I can't define myself in only 10 albums, and my musical taste is all over the place. As for influencing me to play electric guitar, I'd have to say VH-1 started it all, even though I play nothing like EVH.
