Quick Quiz: Dark Side of the Moon or Animals

Everyone says that Dark Side is probably the best rock album ever made.

Perhaps.  Beyond the over-played Money and Time, there is this:

But Animals is amazing in it’s own way.  And not so over-played as to be boring.

And, of course, there’s this:

So, what do you think?

  41. Careful with that axe, Eugene.

  42. What’s up? I was listening to Pat Green singing “Songs About Texas”?

  43. Is Chris a Hunky?
    That is a Hungarian dish.Through and through.

  45. Hi noted PJM
    Sorry I missed you.
    buys a Newcastle or 5

  46. PJM -Thanks for sending me the photos.

    I still dont’ understand why you couldnt just outright ask wiserbud for the nude photos of himself

  47. I have never had chicken paprikash, but I should fix that. It looks really good.

  48. J’Ames, I assume you are also a Roger Waters fan?

    Excellent song from an excellent album with an awesome cover.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKKNOW0t5H0

    one of Roger Waters best solo albums, however, is this, IMO.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS35PVNzpOk

  49. And yeah, while I am sooo tired of The Wall, this is fucking awesome:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUYzQaCCt2o

  50. I saw Roger Water’s latest tour of The Wall in Kansas City. One of the better shows I’ve seen. It was even handed on the politics, too, which I didn’t expect.

    The intermission was a memorial for fallen heroes, and very well done.

    Yeah, I’m a fan.

  51. You may be tired of The Wall, but it’s still a pretty kick ass album.

  52. I could go for a good old Pink Floyd laser light show at a planetarium. I haven’t done one of those in a couple of decades.

  53. ApF

    That’s just because you all have all of your taste in your mouth.

  54. I still dont’ understand why you couldnt just outright ask wiserbud for the nude photos of himself

    Beach!

  55. Vmax,
    A Bohunk, while Bohemia existed.
    That dish if fast, easy, quick, and VERY filling! Never tried it before. A couple Morons were discussing it today and I had to look it up.
    NYTOL…

  56. It was even handed on the politics, too, which I didn’t expect.

    I can’t go to his concerts, being massively allergic to pot, but yeah, I had heard that about his shows.

    I do find it funny that’s he’s always so anti-capitalist.

    Guess he tours for free.

  57. Hmmm, I haven’t heard Amused to Death. I will fix that.

  58. Guess he tours for free.

    Yeah, that’s why my tickets cost $200 right?

    Stupid capitalists.

  59. You may be tired of The Wall, but it’s still a pretty kick ass album.

    Actually, I like that album, as well as the movie. I even have a bootleg video from their original Wall tour which is way awesome cool. Amazing stage show, considering the time.

    Not sure what Roger is trying to say in all of his music, though. Is he pro- or anti-war? He really needs to be more obvious there.

    My favorite lyrics from Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert:

    Brezhnev took Afghanistan
    And Begin took Beirut
    Galtieri took the Union Jack
    And Maggie over lunch one day
    Took a cruiser with all hands
    Apparently, to make him give it back
    Ooo, Maggie what have you done?

    Maggie, what have you done?

    I love how fighting back is comparable to Brezhnev invading Afghanistan in his eyes.

  60. You would have been in cardiac arrest approaching the Sprint Center in KC, if you were allergic to pot.

    I haven’t smoked in years, but I had a contact high that night.

  61. Hmmm, I haven’t heard Amused to Death. I will fix that.

    great album. Enjoy.

  62. There’s a Hungarian restaurant just up the street from us that makes a very nice chicken paprikash.

  63. If I couldn’t listen to music if I didn’t agree with the message, then I wouldn’t listen to 90% of music out there.

    And yeah, Roger, you miss your dad. We get it.

  64. One of my favorite versions of an old Pink Floyd song.

    Yeah, I’m a David Gilmour fan, too. Bend that string again, Dave, I love it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DRd52VP7ks

  65. awwwww… rick wright.

    I actually shed a tear or two when he died.

    And yeah, Roger, you miss your dad. We get it.

    You are simply going to be stunned by the subject of Amused to Death….

    Absolutely stunned.

  66. I love David Gilmour’s guitar work, but I prefer Roger’s solo work to David’s.

  67. Live in Pompeii… fucking amazing.

    took me a long time to really appreciate it.

  68. You would have been in cardiac arrest approaching the Sprint Center in KC, if you were allergic to pot.

    I’ve had to walk out of so many shows.

    I saw The Who do Quadrophenia in an outdoor arena back in the late 90s and still had to walk out because of the pot

  69. “GET YOUR FILTHY HANDS OFF MY DESERT!”

  70. If I couldn’t listen to music if I didn’t agree with the message, then I wouldn’t listen to 90% of music out there.

    I used to be a huge Springsteen fan. Still think Jungleland is brilliant.

    Usually, I can separate the music from the musician. But he became such a raging Obamatard hypocritical asshole that I can’t listen to him anymore without getting pissed off.

  71. I agree on Roger’s solo work.

    I’m kinda sad, because I imagine how much music those two could have come up with in recent years, instead of being pissed at each other. They played off each other so well.

  72. I like how Tommy had both an Overture and an Underture.

  73. Jungleland IS brilliant.

    I don’t care if he’s a lefty tard. It’s still brilliant.

    10th Avenue Freeze Out is on that album, too.

  74. I’m kinda sad, because I imagine how much music those two could have come up with in recent years, instead of being pissed at each other. They played off each other so well.

    I blame Roger. I’ve watched a bunch of docs on the making of PF’s later albums and it is obvious that Roger is a total control-freak douche who can’t get past his one and only message.

    Imagine being Gilmour and trying to get Roger to move on already…..

  75. I don’t care if he’s a lefty tard. It’s still brilliant.

    Yeah, it’s the only Springsteen song still on my iPod. It’s just too freaking good.

  76. <i.I like how Tommy had both an Overture and an Underture.

    You’re about a week late, GO.

    But since you’re dead, I’ll cut you some slack. Obviously, you are a slow zombie

  77. Just saw this one, wiser, and I hadn’t seen it. Richard Wright solo on the piano, Us and Them.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agpmtNKhnQU

  78. I’ve watched a bunch of docs on the making of PF’s later albums and it is obvious that Roger is a total control-freak douche who can’t get past his one and only message.

    Yeah, it’s pretty obvious in the albums, too!

  79. Cyn is SOOOO gonna ban us.

  80. You’re about a week late, GO.
    But since you’re dead, I’ll cut you some slack. Obviously, you are a slow zombie

    I’m so slow I still reckon my bills in shillings and bob.

  81. That’s from the Making of DSOTM vid

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLqkwGfwajs

    Richard was amazingly talented.

  82. I think Pee Wee Herman is probably under appreciated as a musician.

  83. okay, after listening to Us and Them, I’m changing my vote

    DSotM still kicks ass


  84. I think Pee Wee Herman is probably under appreciated as a musician.

    He plays the same instrument as Fred Willard.

  85. Oh, and I Robot.


  86. I think Pee Wee Herman is probably under appreciated as a musician.

    From what I’ve read, he’s an expert on the flute

  87. Oh, and I Robot.

    That’s next week’s quiz

    I Robot vs. The Turn of a Friendly Card

  88. *Raises hand.” I know, I know, I know!

  89. I Robot vs. The Turn of a Friendly Card

    Yes! Tie in to DSotM?

  90. Cyn is SOOOO gonna ban us.

    Not if I ban her first!!!

  91. What about The Captain and Tenille vs. The Starland Vocal Band?

  92. Skyrockets in flight.

  93. Yes! Tie in to DSotM?

    Or Wizard of Oz?

  94. Trans Europe Express

  95. heh.

    No, I get it.

    I was stunned when I found out that Alan Parsons produced DSotM.

    But then it all made sense…..

  96. MUSKRAT LOVE!!

  97. Sidebar: Queen – Love Of My Life vs. Who Wants To Live Forever.

    Discuss.

  98. Who Wants to Live Forever! Highlander 1, the only.

    There is no discussion.

  102. Crazy Little Thing Called Love is still one of my favorites.

  103. Crackle. Free movies streamed.

    Watched these two recently:

    good stuff

  104. “Fat Bottomed Girls” sounds like the title of a post at H2.

  105. Crazy Little Thing Called Love is still one of my favorites.

    DIAF.

    I fucking hate that song

  106. Speaking of Crackle … via same, I recently twice tried to watch Basic Instinct 2 all the way through. This certainly has to be in the running for one of the worst movies ever … at least in the Top 37 of such lists.

  107. This certainly has to be in the running for one of the worst movies ever

    try watching Elektra Luxx

    lying bastards….

  108. As someone in the docs I linked above said, it’s a damn good thing Freddie Mercury used his power for good and not for evil.

  109. I recently twice tried to watch Basic Instinct 2 all the way through.

    Consider a less self-destructive pastime, like meth.

  110. In answer to Sean, Kristin Morgan’s bio says that she used to work insulating foam issues in the materials lab. I worked foam for 3 years, and I don’t remember her. That really doesn’t mean anything, though, I tend to stay away from meetings as much as possible. She’s a strategic analyst now, so that means she’s planning what I’ll be working on in 3-10 years.

  111. this is also available on Crackle.

    I liked this flick

    http://www.crackle.com/c/American_Pop/American_Pop/2470780?c=US

  112. Video Description: Pregnant porn star Elektra Luxx is trying to leave the adult film industry by making a living teaching sex classes to housewives. But her life is thrown into disarray when a flight attendant with ties to Elektra’s past approaches her for a favor.

    Meh. Saw that same plot on two different episodes of One Tree Hill.

  113. Meh. Saw that same plot on two different episodes of One Tree Hill.

    You cast Carla Gugino as a pron star and you don’t have her naked at any point (at least up until I stopped watching)???

    Okay… that’s just fucking stupid in the extreme.

  114. Really?

    //goes back to watch all 167 episodes, and wonders how I missed the pregnant porn star

  115. I thought One Tree Hill was a porn show.

  116. Don’t talk shit about OTH!

    //been there, done that, actually DO have the T-shirt

  117. Hey, maybe I’m mistaken. I thought always watched One Tree Hill on the Hustler Channel. At least I think it’s One Tree Hill. It might be called Full Cooter Hose-Down. Not sure.

  118. Hey, J’ames, saw your boss Capt. Stubing on (kid you not) the Florence Henderson Show today. Mrs. Orwell found it on the RLTV channel. He looks really good for his age. The whole channel seems to be geared to the over fifty crowd. Being dead I fit right in.

  119. Moira Kelly looked good on OTH.

  120. Haha, that’s great!

  121. I didn’t know Gavin MacLeod was still around. Cool.

  122. and yeah, I just checked on Abe Vigoda.

  123. Birthplace of Abe Vigoda

  124. MacLeod is still kicking and very lively.

  129. Sometimes we walk hand in hand by the sea
    And we breathe in the cool salty air,
    You turn to me with a kiss in your eyes
    And my heart feels a derp beyond compare
    Then your lips cling to mine, it’s wonderful, wonderful
    Oh, so wonderful my love.

  130. Morning.

  131. Missed the fun. Yes, Waters had this issue about his dad. Over and over and over.

  132. Ahem.

    Pink Floyd Pre-Breakup (not counting live & repackaged mix albums):
    Best Album – DSotM narrowly beats Animals, followed closely by Wish You Were Here
    The Wall is their most over-rated album. Interesting movie though. (Fun fact – Nick Mason was the only member of the band to make a profit on the original Wall tour. Everybody else lost money.)
    Most Obscure Album: Tie: Obscured By Clouds & More, followed by Atom Heart Mother
    Worst Album: The Final Cut (which is technically Roger’s first solo album)
    The most WTF?? Song: Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave and Grooving with a Pict, followed by Atom Heart Mother Suite
    Most Disturbing: Careful With That Axe Eugene & One of These Days (tie).
    Best Long Format Song: tossup between Echos & Shine On You Crazy Diamond, depends on mood.

    Best Post-Breakup Careers:
    Best: Remaining members of Pink Floyd – Roger Waters sucks ass.
    Best Solo Work: David Gilmour
    Best Album: The Division Bell

    If you disagree with any of this you are worse than Hitler.

  133. Oh, and Worst Live Album: Roger’s The Wall – Live in Berlin. Great Calamity Kittens but what a complete steaming turd.
