Cat Food video!
:: Posted by DrDick on January 08, 2015

Well I never, whatever next?! If that long lost footage can be found, what next? I comfortably predict that by the end of the week we’ll have found Shergar, Lord Lucan and the King Crimson fan who has never been dopey on the guestbook.....


Cat Food video
:: Posted by Lamont on January 08, 2015

Great to see Cat Food again. Last time I saw it was the night it was broadcast. But are there enough days left in the Guestbook life for someone to tell me what on earth Mr Fripp is doing with his guitar I that little solo?  Is he pulling something across the string? 


Also, Sid, I will the Diary disappear when the Guestbook goes? If so, will the archives remain?

Thanks as always for the work of the DGM team.
Hi - I think what Robert is doing with his guitar in the video is having a laugh. Contrary to a few posts on the guestbook, the RF diary is NOT disappearing and Robert will continue to update the diary when his schedule allows.

I'll miss this place

Maybe someone can purchase the .kc web domain and King Crimson can have it’s own internet. Thanks to Mr. Fripp for doing this all these years and allowing this degree of opportunity for insight into his work and music/life in general.



response to bloggulator

A few thoughts on bloggulator’s post regarding alleged dopiness brought about by transitioning the Guestbook’s conversation over to Facebook:

This relegation will doubtlessly result in an increase of dopey commentary, since the nature of both media mandates the dumbing down of virtual communication

How would the the tone and direction of the content/commentary change simply by virtue of logging onto Facebook rather than logging onto the DGM Live Guestbook? Theoretically we would be the same people posting the same viewpoints we’ve had here for years. In other words, Facebook wouldn’t be any dopier than the Guestbook. The dopiness would be equal. :)

meaningful conversation ranges from "difficult to impossible".

There is actually more of a dialogue on Facebook or Twitter (or any proper forum) than on this Guestbook. It’s never been the most straightforward process to reply to someone here, and Facebook facilitates this much more effectively.

Furthermore, many of we netizens deliberately reject both Facebook and Twitter, on account of ethical, privacy and political concerns.

Then create a new Facebook account. Don’t use your real name. Call yourself "Blog U. Later." This would solve your privacy concern. With regards to ethical concerns and political concerns, they are all purely subjective. You will find viewpoints from all over the political spectrum. You will find groups and pages on Facebook you will loathe... but you just may find some that land on topics near and dear to your heart.

This will effectively remove, or excommunicate a number of us from a portion of the web-based section of the King Crimson community.

It doesn’t have to. Beyond interacting with the DGM Live page, you don’t have to do anything else on Facebook. You are not forced to become Facebook friends with anyone. Just check-in to the bands you like for a few minutes a day, and you’re done.

See you all on Facebook and Twitter.

...more dopiness...?
:: Posted by AndrewJohn on January 07, 2015

...there is a marvellous chapter in ’Think before you Think’(Stafford Beer - Wavestone Press 2009). My mother pointed this out to me. ’Social Complexity and the Knowledge of Knowing’, its subtitle, is not an easy read, but some common sense and out of the box brain crunching helps.

I point you to Chapter 6; Strength. With the aid of diagram, picture, words sent with love and in its original version of 1978 Stafford Beer translates how Poise may be achieved, manifested and translated.

I feel this level of Poise and Strength is revealing itself in the KC of now. RF’s level of joyousness is a reflection of the achievement of all the knowledge, love, experience and personal power encouraged by the manner and way of KC.

....naturally I see rainbows all the time and you may wish to disregard this musing from a dopey KC audient.......and it’s only rock’n’roll, but I like it..... 

and did you know, although I may be wrong, that Elvis would have been 80 tomorrow and the date includes the magic 801 ; 08/01/15.

Thanks DGM......here’s to letting go soon.

and looking forward to whatever let’s us go again.

Apologies if this is not news but the sentiment is positive, there is also a cleaned up version too!

Best wishes and good fortune.


Guestbook -> Facebook> Bring on the dopiness :(
:: Posted by bloggulator on January 07, 2015

I am perplexed by not only of the impending loss of the Guestbook, but by the likelihood of its downgrade, or rather free fall, to something likely based on Facebook or Twitter. This relegation will doubtlessly result in an increase of dopey commentary, since the nature of both media mandates the dumbing down of virtual communication; meaningful conversation ranges from "difficult to impossible".

Furthermore, many of we netizens deliberately reject both Facebook and Twitter, on account of ethical, privacy and political concerns. This will effectively remove, or excommunicate a number of us from a portion of the web-based section of the King Crimson community.

Dopiness: Bring It On, I guess.
What does Mr. Bloggulator intend to set up to meet with his perceived standards of netizen commentary? RF


Facebook migration
:: Posted by snkzato1 on January 07, 2015

Not sure if anyone has ventured and started something yet, but I am wondering about thoughts on creating a facebook group that would be a continuation of what we are doing here. I’d be happy to make it and we could call it "The DGM Guestbook". Thoughts? I’ve been really enjoying reading the comments here for the past year since I’ve been popping in.



Sidenote: maybe my chrome is just being a bit wonky, but suddenly DGM has the soundcloud favicon when I load it. I wonder if there may be a major website rebuild in the works...


:: Posted by JBeerLTIA on January 06, 2015

The cryptic entries from DS have me a little worried, losing DGM in its current form would be heartbreaking, but I do read into things a bit too much sometimes. Has Robert ever considered scoring movies? His soundscapes could fit in almost any genre, IMO. When I was in school, I made a couple student films, and the music was always the most enjoyable and satisfying. Just a thought.

Robert, i love you, amazing music.

Love and Peace.
