Burning Q for RF

Elementally do you know what you are doing?

..had mine a week in the UK(...still the UK thank goodness!).
Live In Paris is a great 3CD set. I resisted downloading this waiting for the release and Iím glad I did.
The music(?) is/was so ínot 1975í then .....
.....now... I wonder if the duo had been exposed to the industrial sounds of England; engineering, steel, foundry, coal works etc in their formative years this sort of industrial, droning repetitious music may not have fascinated them so much. For me these connections resonated when I heard this music with an unearthliness that I clearly have loved.
However I am also sure that this listening will continue as a rather solitary pleasure.......not many then or now really enjoy this. This sound of course has also been inculcated in KC down the years. Fripps restrained but appropriate, perhaps improvised, guitar is fine.
Al Okadaís notes are great in the excellent booklet. CD3 can be enjoyed by revealing the possibilities of the looped sounds in a different context and respects the completist, as many of us are.
After my second listening.....the sense of reward has increased........a good sign.
So looking forward to my next loop back to the beginning.......but now on to Discretion..
(Ps. I recall the considerable derision that came my way at school as I was an advocate of (No Pussyfooting) in the sixth form, especially TheHMC which I got played (perhaps not in full though!) at The New Music Society 1973/4, .......and perhaps ironically, certainly not directly encouraging a fellow to name his dog Frippandeno!
LIVE AT DARYL'S HOUSE 2
:: Posted by GonzalezPaulo on September 19, 2014
Such a great idea froggy55.... to see Robert performing with Daryl Hall in an episode of Live At Darylís House.
Iíd love to see Fripp playing a live version of that excelent song DONíT BLAME IT ON LOVE which he recorded with Daryl Hall & John Oates on their 1978 album ALONG THE RED LEDGE.
Or some of the best songs on Darylís solo album SACRED SONGS.... SOMETHING IN 4/4 TIME, BABS AND BABS, THE FURTHER AWAY I AM and DONíT LEAVE ME ALONG WITH HER...

For anyone: In all your travels where did you encounter the best coffee?
Burning question for Mr Fripp

How many suits did you bring for the tour and who is responsible for getting them dry cleaned?
The Trending of the Crimson King
:: Posted by skullsaw on September 19, 2014
Did anyone else notice that yesterday, for a short time, Crimson was "Trending" on Yahooís front page? Of course you didnít, who the hell uses Yahoo aside from me. But yes, for a few fleeting minutes our favorite boy band was right up there with Kaley Cuoco and Valerie Bertinelli.

Postings about movies could take up this entire board. And those would be just MY postings. But I will list only one more: the astonishing film I saw last night! I believe believe fans of KCís music will experience a resonance with this (as they might with Orpheus):
Ordet, directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer
If you watch this, then do not read much beforehand Two things might help. First, it has great formal beauty (especially framing and lighting): watch and marvel! Second, it is a deep meditation on other-worldly faith and this-worldly love (and not a simple farce as I first suspected). There are no credits of any kind, except for the original playís name "Ordet" and the name of the playwrite (a pastor named Kaj Munk, who was martyred by the Nazis). It is a deceptively simple film that knocked me FLAT.
Opening Night, NYC

Unbelievable! The Beast has claimed Times Square...
Great show, great crowd, one of the best performances Iíve ever seen! Brought my 19-year-old son, and passed the Crim torch to him - he was blown away. Wish I had more tickets - so glad I didnít miss this one. Thank you, Robert & the band. One final comment - the triple drummers were absolutely amazing! They could have been a show unto themselves.
