I was hoping LM was joking about Wayne's penis. He was not. It's a great video though, really.

So, I was listening to Felt's new album, Felt 3: A Tribute to Rosie Perez (hip-hop, it's Slug from Atmosphere and Murs from Living Legends together) and during a song, "Henrietta Longbottom," Murs mentioned the Flaming Lips, along with Johnny Cash and Biggie, in one line.

/random Lips mentions that amused me this morning

That doesn't make up for dedicating an album to Rose Perez.

Ha, no maybe not. The other two women their albums are dedicated to are Christina Ricci and Lisa Bonet. And, apparently they choose the dedications based on who Slug and Murs want to sleep with, but probably never will.

Back to "Watching the Planets," did anybody else find it somewhat amusing that the giant vagina ball was also a pig/snorting like one?

Four discs with bits and pieces of several songs to be played simultaneously on four CD players, an extension of their parking garage experiments. I mean, it's a cool idea and everything, just really, really impracticle. I don't know anyone who's ever done it. You can find mp3s of the entire album with all four tracks mixed together though. There are actually good songs there.

Hey, Cass, I think the vinyl of Embryonic comes out Tuesday.

Four discs, all to be played simultaneously, yes. They weren't, though, four discs with individual songs; instead, they were different tracks of the mix. Sometimes, one disc would have bass, one guitar, one drums, and one synth, whereas sometimes two discs would be quiet, while the other two did all the work. It was all over the place, in that regard. Very interesting, very interactive, and (in my opinion) a lot more fun to think about that to listen to. Have had it for like six or seven years, at this point, and have only bothered going through all the rigmarole three or four times. I just didn't enjoy the record, all that much. C'est la vie.

I do (haven't had the opportunity to do so myself yet) and he said it was pretty cool. What I find really awesome about it is the infinite possibilities for small changes due to pushing play at different times, altering the positions of the CD players, etc. And, yes, there are some good songs on there, "Riding to Work in the Year 2025 (You're Invisible Now)" is simply sublime.

Fuck yeah! Now, to scrap up $25 for that bad boy...I think I still have that coupon to the Fetus around here somewhere that I was planning on using toward it, considering it'd be a terribly fitting album to use it on.

I can agree with that. Relative to the albums around it (Transmissions, Clouds, Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi), the songs themselves don't really stand up.

Still an innovative and fun concept though. Wouldn't expect any less of the Flaming Lips.

i was stunned to found out how old they are/how long they've been around. i thought they began mid-to-late 90s.

any word on the dark side of the moon project? i really hope this sees the light of day...

Funny you should ask about the Dark Side thing:



Quote:
Last month, we reported that the Flaming Lips were planning to pay tribute to their psych-rock forebears by covering Pink Floyd's dorm-room classic Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety, probably as an iTunes-only release. The Lips' version, a collaboration with the band Stardeath and White Dwarfs (which includes Wayne Coyne's nephew Dennis Coyne as a member), is set to include appearances from Henry Rollins and Peaches. We still don't have any details about the release of the Lips' Dark Side, but we now know that the Lips are planning to cover the whole album live on New Year's Eve. (Thanks to Ryan Jordal for the tip!)

That trippy image you see above is the flier for the Lips' New Years Eve Freakout, which the band recently posted on their website. The December 31 show will go down at the Cox Center in the Lips' hometown of Oklahoma City, and it'll also feature Stardeath and White Dwarfs. Near the bottom of the flier, you'll note this great little promise: "Starting at midnight: A special performance of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon." If you live anywhere near Oklahoma City, you now have your NYE plans figured out.


"All humans are urged to attend," says the flier. All the robots and super-intelligent gorillas in the Lips' fanbase must be feeling pretty dejected right now.

Peaches is the thing that all nightmares are made of. Yikes.

I actually got hit in the eye by a pick she threw out in 2006. I went to the VD clinic immediately.
