THE EXCEPTION is an EXCEPTIONal sports coach, I might add: baseball and basketball. Very well respected and successful in the youth sports leagues of the area. Thought you'd like that.
You know that I gots to have my music in my life, but at least he's not loading up on XMas tunes. I assumed he was liked/respected as a coach, do not ask me why.

I tend to agree.

I really didn't like The Wall much. That's where Waters crossed that line into sacrificing quality of the songs for the concept.

I mean, even if some are important to the plot, at least a good chunk should stand well on its own. Very little of that album does. And it's not really all that good together anyway.

I need to give Meddle another spin. And I'm interested in hearing Atom Heart Mother courtesy of Summer '68 being a great track.

which is awesome but that's soooo not representative of their work.

if i had to sum up split enz in three songs (which is hard cuz they spanned so many genres or whatever): spellbound (off their debut mental notes), i got you (off true colours cuz everyone fucking loves it), and dirty creature (off time and tide because it's awesome).

and ha. one song by each vocalist. i didn't even try!

A Charlie Brown Christmas is my holiday vice. Fucking great record. Most other Christmas music feels drab and repetitive to me after December 10th or so, but that one is good for the jazz enthusiast any time of year.

He's a very involved coach in that he's on top of the play and directing as it happens (which is why, even when he's an assistant, teams always make him the third base coach in baseball). Rarely does he involve the refs.

Though when he does, it's quite amusing. Like the time at a basketball game where he took a red towel he had in his pocket to wipe off his clipboard to "challenge" a call.

He didn't get T'd up for that either. He got his first T saying "You gotta call it both ways." I find that amusing.

I like The Wall just fine, but it's a mood thing. It's not something that can be played at all times, and it has more than its share of filler.

You really should check out Atom Heart Mother, but don't expect to love it. I think it's great, but definitely not for everyone.

Sounds like kids are lucky to play ball for him.

It's got some gems, but I don't care for most of it.
