It's Rundgren's best work, and he was high the whole time.

And there's side one, done.

One of the things about great art is how it can be different every time, for you; you can notice little things you didn't notice before. It can be little or big. In a film, it can be little details they threw in that you never noticed. Or it can be the whole moral structure of the film.

This time I noticed the little. I always noticed that "Ballet For a Rainy Day" sounds like a rainy day. This is partly Rundgren's producing, at work. but how?! how does he do that? A lot of it is reverb; he strategically *drenches* the song in different kinds of echo.

And with cymbals. Big cymbal crashes have been thought of as "lightning" forever, but that's too obvious. Rundgren uses light tings on the ride cymbal, and reverbs them, so they feel like a shimmering puddle. (Use your imagination!)

And then, from 1:38 to 1:41, there are three CRASH cymbals that are recorded way down in the mix, and then reverbed out. These are on the beat, and today I heard them for the first time, suddenly it's obvious, loud and clear, as splashes in a puddle.

He has little tricks like this, all over the track. It's amazing!!

It was a teachable moment (sometimes, you will be disappoint and we won't play*). Sexybong was also on point re the script. More so than anyone, in fact

1) If you had a 40 hour work week, would you prefer five 8-hour days or four 10-hour days?

five 8 hour days. 10 hours is too much like hard work.

2) Do you pee in the shower?



3) Hyacinths or Daffodils?

Daffodils.

4) Would you rather write a poem or sketch an animal?

Write a poem. I have written a few in my time.

5) Do you take any vitamin or mineral supplements?

No, I rather get my vitamins from fruit & veg. Apparently they're absorbed better that way.

6) What's the best pasta shape?

Conchiglie. You get the sauce in the shell.

7) Which baby animal do you most associate with Spring?

Lamb. I turned veggie last year, so I don't eat them anymore.

8) Do you have any houseplants?

A spider plant, chili plant, and avocado plant.

9) tight or loose underwear?

Stretch boxers.

10) What is your favorite Spring activity?

I'm into black and white film photography. I like taking pictures of Nature through the seasons, particularly trees.

There's a specialist camera shop and printing shop in my town where I can get them easily enough. The Boots chemists chain even sell them. I'm in the UK, maybe it's harder in the States, I don't know. I imagine you can get it on eBay or Amazon if you looked. I'm a member of a local darkroom so I can do the processing and printing myself.
