Avatar 1:58am NikiA:

If anyone cares to know, this song is not in fact an Eternity in D, but an Eternity in D Minor
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:58am ultradamno:

Is this a Melodica being played?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59am TomDash:

thanks NikiA - glad you're digging the groove...D Minor? WHO KNEW! ha - glad you're digging the grooves NikiA! ultrad - no I think it is an oboe?
Avatar 2:01am NikiA:

ultradamno Third Ear Band uses a cello, violin, drum, and an oboe
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:02am ultradamno:

I thought an oboe was a deeper sound than that...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:04am ultradamno:

They've used more instruments than that, according to this, but I don't see melodica en.wikipedia.org...

Hey there Owen, welcome and hope it is not a) raining or b) really cold! Get those keys and stay tuned for the drifty dreamy jams
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:09am ultradamno:

For some reason they made me think of Motor Totemist Guild and that made me think of their cover of Sub-Mission, which I now want to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10am Gurldoggie:

Hi Owen, Hi Nikia. I'm out west with ya'll, up in cold and rainy Seattle. I imagine Portland is much the same? Hope you get your car troubles worked out QUICK.

hey rw!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:22am ultradamno:

On the subject of reindeer, I have recently come to the scientific conclusion that Lemmy was Donner, Fast Eddie was Rudolph and Philthy was Dasher. twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28am coelacanth∅:

i thought Philthy was Blitzen...

and i'm with JH about not joining the Donner party
  2:30am Owen:

really loved that last track with the french dialogue, very cool. roadside assistance came on time for once (this is not my first time calling them lol) thanks to everyone's good vibes!
  2:32am rw:

Glad it went (relatively) smoothly Owen!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:33am ultradamno:

Blitzen? Blitzen is a vaguely cut-rate Rudolph ("shine a light on this", the fuck?) Dasher speeds things up. Bam! Lemmy, perhaps as much as any rock star, had done his paying of dues. Humping gear for Hendrix and others, side man in Hawkwind. Forming Motörhead, more even than being a star, was an act of self-expression for him, Donner is defined by exactly that. Lemmy is Donner. This is a legally binding resolution
  2:36am rw:

NikiA, Thank you for the moral support!

ultradamno, Everything okay?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:37am ultradamno:

Just doing my due diligence.
  2:39am rw:

Cool. Just checking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am coelacanth∅:

sorry ultra but i'm not playing any reindeer games
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47am coelacanth∅:

(and i'm not letting poor Rudolph play any either)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:47am ultradamno:

Oh, the time for games is long over. This is where the reindeer work begins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49am coelacanth∅:

true, but i think Blitzen just likes Rudolph's ass and wants a better look
  2:50am rw:

Oh, man. What would I do without you all?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:51am ultradamno:

Yeah, Blitzen is in it for the ass, there's always one.

Rudolph, Fast Eddie, as established. Larry Wallis is probably Comet. He had other irons in the fire.
  2:51am rw:

Thank you Mr. Dash! Beautiful. Take care everyone.
