Hey, Ax, what's your take on early (pre Atom Heart Mother) Pink Floyd? I'm finding myself enjoying the b-sides and rarities far more than the actual albums. They're not perfect, but I could listen to See Emily Play and Paintbox for an eternity.

Well, it's hardly any secret that I enjoy Syd-era Floyd. Between his departure and AHM? I haven't paid too much attention to that stuff, though More has a few rather good songs and, of course, the genius of Cymbaline.

It's officially 7 minutes after the rug rat went to bed, and I've had two shots of vodka. Already approaching

You know what I've recently discovered goes well together?

Vanilla vodka and diet cherry coke.

I'd have one now, but I'm afraid the caffeine would keep me up ... and I've already had two nights in a row of crappy sleep.

I've overplayed pretty much every PF album from Meddle on, so it's about all I can stomach anymore. They wrote so many striking pop songs that are hardly ever mentioned. The later albums are better, but one man can only hear DSOTM so many times before getting restless.

I downloaded a version of the Man And The Journey set from '69 that was highly entertaining and creative. There are so many bands that I wish would revitalize their catalogue in such a way.

I had a hard time avoiding laughter on the 10th when we were advised of rains and possible hail overnight ... and from 9am on the 10th to 9am on the 11th, we got all of 0.2 mm of rain. Woop-dee-fucking-doo!

It's funny, the more I've listened to DSOTM, the more it's actually grown on me. I was very underwhelmed by it initially compared to WYWH and Animals and such. But yeah, I can see what you mean, for sure.

I've a set of The Man And The Journey too - is the one you got from somewhere in the Netherlands? I admittedly haven't played the bootleg in a good couple of years, but it's certainly a fascinating thing. Even if it didn't always work out, PF were stunningly creative around that time and certainly pushed some limits.
