This is why I always say a polite "hey, crow" whenever I pass near one. And I haven't been attacked… yet.
commented on Never Heard of 'Em: King Crimson
Hey Anna, rather amusing. I'm also amused that it looks like the haters all missed the fact that you did like the title track a lot. In terms of you "just not getting it", it may be worth mentioning that the '80s version of King Crimson is rather different from this, and the '90s-to-recent versions are different again, although if you ever listened to that much you'd start to see the musical connections, I believe. (It helps that they keep adding more parts to "Larks' Tongues in Aspic"…) In any case, I think you'd find the '80s version more accessible (which is not a bad thing) but still with some challenging instrumentals.
Also, was that really Trey Gunn for real? That's fantastic. Made me laugh out loud. I had no idea he was in Seattle now.

@6, if you have time on Thursday evenings, check out the Story Games Seattle group that meets up at Gamma Ray Games on Pine Street. It's geared toward story/role-playing games that are easy to learn and fun to play in an evening, without having to make a long-term commitment, but also a good way to transition into more hard-core gaming if that's what you're after.

"I always wanted to hear them partner with a talented rapper and put together an album that landed squarely between rock and hiphop"
Interestingly, that sounds like a decent description of what Spencer's sister Muffin was flirting with in her band Brassy.
