    Matt, what a nasty announcer! i never had that happen (no radio appearances! but i did bring a cd to a local classical station. i was dressed somewhat gypsy-like. i was so new to this all that i didn't know how to characterize my music. "classical fusion" i said. classical fusion? the guy (who was an announcer) said suspiciously. I could feel the vibes along the lines of "there's no way this chick writes real music"!

A number of deconstructions concerning not materialism per se, but postmaterialism may be revealed.

    Nice, very nice all links.

    "Thou weedy urchin-snouted harpy!"


    Haven't the faintest idea what it means but it rolls well from the tongue.

    LOL. I didn't think urchins had snouts.

    I LOVE it!!! LOL!

    Really like the Shakespearean insults. Gosh! I could spend hours just clicking away at the Insult Me icon. . . LOL!

    Thou droning ill-breeding ratsbane!

    Thou craven fool-born baggage!

    Thou beslubbering earth-vexing haggard!

    Thou frothy sheep-biting strumpet!

    Thou mammering flap-mouthed flirt-gill!



    Thanks for posting the cool links, Karen!

    Hi. I’m in a prog rock band that has a hard-core punk side. We started off calling ourselves Six Mirrors and Their Poodle, but got sued by some dog owners, so we decided it was time for a new name. Of course we went through the usual – The Candle Racket, Viscous Politics, motherbox, Two Turgid Dogs, Axe Factor and (way too obvious) Confederate Lake. For one reason or another, none of these seemed appropriate, so we tried to go for something that really describes us, something that would BE us. The Good Garden Experience was almost a go, but then we were sidetracked by Grace Vera and the Des Moines Irregulars. The argument ended with us calling ourselves A Basket of Women. The next day we ran into another band with that name and so were back to square one.

    Final we settled on Two Motors with Sheep.

    We release our first album tomorrow. Look for it in a record store near you.



    I know it is way too ‘90s, but I am surprised this generator didn't throw in some random numbers like: "drool bucket 237" or "Fan-dango 8". Maybe "Barf 183", "Candlestick 19", "Adam 7" or "Mauve 6". (All from this paragraph are my own creation (as the parodies should tell you) and not generated.)

    Karen, wow I loved these - the band name generator alone is hilarious - I took a few for future percussion ensemble pieces!

    I've loved H.P.L. since high school.

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Many years ago I used to work in a record store. As a prank when I left, I created a fake CD by the non-existent band "The Tetherball Mummies." I put a price on it, and inserted into the collections. It was still there a week later when I went to visit.

    The Shakespeare text generator is pretty tame for the guy who once said...

    A knave, a rascal, an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-liver’d, action-taking knave; a whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch: one whom I will beat into clamorous whining if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition. Whoreson, cullionly, barber-monger! You cowardly rascal, nature disclaims in thee: a tailor made thee. Ay, a tailor, sir: a stone-cutter or a painter could not have made thee so ill, though they had been but two hours o’ the trade. Thou whoreson zed! thou unnecessary letter! A plague upon your epileptic visage!

    Nonetheless, I was entertained.

    Musicians are just these guys that want to make music. Okay, they want to have a wonderful lifestyle, but the majority just want to make really great music. - Jon Anderson

    I'm definitely writing an automatic music critic one day. I'm collecting the gems of dadaistic poetry that respected Slovenian critics spew out; all I need is find some free hours to code the brain. (finding the free hours is the tricky part for me

    I wish I could translate some of them but could never do them justice.
