Bad physics! You wouldn't burst into fire 'cause there's no air in space.

Some of these guys are my "similar artists" on last.fm. I just wish they wouldn't use so many weird characters in their names.

Ah, the bastard children of John Zewizz grubbing in pop culture detritus. This one salutes you.

seriously, MULHOLL▲ND DRIVE has to be the laziest witchhouse name of them all.

There are so many things here I don't understand, and yes, I did watch every single episode of Twin Peaks.

Like, what is the deal with that xkcd thing? Was it supposed to make me feel Lynchian?

I still think Witch House is a joke that I haven't gotten yet.

Oh, and I've heard that the term for all this is Newbreed. (warning: I'm in there.)

This statement could apply to pretty much all tagging on Last.fm. As much as I love being able to keep track of my listening habits, the whole place is a giant edit war between various types of angsty teenagers and teenagers-in-spirit battling for control of short wiki articles about bands they'll furiously deny knowing in six months. The "groups" function is even worse; it boils down to "I hearby pledge my fealty to the abstract ideal of only using certain time signatures and VST plugins and declare war on any artist that dares deviate."

Joke or not, these noiseblobs make my earballs jiggle with delight.

Someone linked this in the last Lynchy thread and I still think it's awesome.

What? Even cockrock?

I've been listening to it for about a month and I think some of the songs stand up. That's why I posted it. ^_^

I particularly like A Blue Rose and Through the Darkness, and then Burst into fire, X-RAYS, and Dweller on the Threshold, and the last song, Traces to Nowhere.

Laura Palmer was good at many things, but physics was not one of them.

Thanks, dunkadunc. I'd never been to that site before, so not sure where I got the track, but mixes along my lines.
