For the boozers out there, you can call for your car to come from wherever it is to drive you home. No more DUI.
Question is whether or not the drunk will know where to go to take them home. Haha

Idk either. Nothing wrong with driving.

Some ppl seem to think driving is their right when, in fact, it is a privilege.

I've developed a new game to keep myself entertained at bars, and I could use some help from y'all. Basically, the goal is to play the longest song I can on the jukebox without it being cut off. I've had "Sister Ray" cut off a few times, but I finally got over the hill tonight, hearing it in its 17-and-a-half-minute entirety (along with "Maggot Brain" and "Good Girl/Carrots").

What I'm looking for now is something even longer that I could likely find on a jukebox (I was looking for a Tony Conrad piece, but no success). If possible, I'd like it to also be somewhat abrasive and generally inaccessible, but nothing outwardly ******.

Any ideas?

You say autonomous cars make you "gag" and if you needed someone to drive you around you'd just use a taxi or a bus, you really don't see how ignorant that sounds? It makes you sound like a short-sighted luddite. As for your love of driving, well hell I'm right there with you (sports cars ) but what does that have to do with anything?! No one said, "hey I can't wait for autonomous vehicles so then we can outlaw driving!".

I've got the Velvets covered already (might actually be my favorite song ever, and if not, it's pretty close), but the others are good options. Thanks.

I discovered them whilst hunting for Christopher Franke's soundtrack work. Never before have I encountered a band that evokes such wildly different reactions from album to album. Some stuff, I absolutely adore. I listen to songs like "Cinnamon Road", "Exit", "Dolls in the Shadows", and "Sun Gate" all the time. They're great for when I want something that has a little bit of texture to it, without being distracting. But other songs, even songs from the same albums, will instigate a physical, visceral reaction that could best be compared to a difficult bowel movement.

Granted, variation is to be expected from a band that's been around for 40+ years and gone through so many personnel changes, but do you think many TD fans have similar experiences?

ESPN has become a garbage sports network. This network seems more like a tabloid than a real sports media network. I was looking at some old clips with these sports writers like Wilbon and Tony K and its amazing to see how clueless they are when it comes to hockey. Only one thing is true in my mind when I see this stuff on ESPN, stupidity knows no boundaries!!!

Watching the NFL on ESPN is a joke now since I can't turn on anything football on without hearing Tebow. Granted, I don't hate Tebow and I was hoping that he would prove his critics wrong in Denver but its looking more and more that he doesn't have what it takes be a good QB in the league. Yet, this backup QB gets more attention than those who deserve it. ESPN is now doing a Tebow takes Manhattan take and have portrayed this man a something bigger than a real QB that lead his team to a Super Bowl victory.

I stopped reading at "has become." It's been that way for quite a while.

I think you'll find that with a lot of bands that manage to last that long. Most will try out at least some different musical arcs. With TD you also get a lot of their albums that were intended as movie soundtracks, while others they can throw some different ideas into that might not fit in the movie backmusic mold. Generally I like most of their stuff, but then with 100+ albums to their credit obviously there's stuff I like more than others. Their 5 disc Tangents release has a pretty solid mix of their most popular stuff if you were recommending a sampler to someone who didn't know their music.

With all the movie soundtracks they've done probably everyone has some favorite movie scenes they didn't realize was TD music. Would guess the train scene from Risky Business is the most well known.

The only film score I listen to regularly is Wendy Carlos's A Clockwork Orange. Never gets old.

they don't report except on teleprompter, and they just talk (I wouldn't say analyze) and they lack actual sport coverage of professional sports. I remember driving by in ~ '96 (on 84) and all they had was a small building and 1 satellite dish. And back then they reported sports, and now they just commercialize themselves. Just bad television... Wish that Fox Sports would do something.

For sheer beauty of the music I recommend "Out of Africa".

Nope. They come from Canada and are immune to US law.

Hey, what's with this term "North America" that's used all over the Canadian media to lump the US and Canada together. They forget that Mexico is part of North America.

... until we cross the Border for a brick of cheap cheese and a skid of Schlitz. Wind up in a rundown Motel 6 surrounded by razor wire with the rest of the illegals, fist fighting Cubans, Mexicans & South Americans over a McHappy Meal.

Those trolls are annoying but this has to be one of the more ridiculous things I've ever read and in AZ that's saying something. Man when is the last time Arizona was known for doing something that isn't ****ing ********?

Unfortunately no it doesn't mean anything, this state does not make it's rules based on logic at all. Knee-jerk, irrational and draconian are our main tenets these days.
