Skunk Ape...

today is friday and the first day of Coachella 2010!!! i'm a little jealous that my buddy is there and i'm not, but oh well. she's in for the time of her life and i wish her the best. as for me, well i have already said this before, but i'll mention it again. this is the start to a great weekend that i have been waiting for for a long time. i'm going to the movies tonight and then tomorrow i'm hitting the powwow and dancing in my outfit for the first time!!! it's gonna be zoppity!!!

let's get technical for a bit and listen to some, King Crimson.

what am i doin' putting this on here??? i wasn't even thought of when this band came out. heck, my parents were still kids when this band first came out. i guess when it comes down to it, it's the music that stands the test of time and keeps making people turn on. king crimson are an awesome psychedelic/progressive band that were way ahead of their time when first starting. the band is from england and started in 1969 by guitarist robert fripp and drummer michael giles. the band is known to be a progressive act, but that label doesn't really do them justice. just look at all the labels i've given them at the bottom. yes, they really have incorporated that much material into their music. the original lineup of the band would last a short while before breaking up. after that, the they went into many different changes all the way up to the present, but that hasn't stopped them from rockin' out.

for the music, you will find two of their albums that are considered the best in their catalog. first is the classic debut, In the Court of the Crimson King. this masterpiece of musical ability and craft is a genre classic and one of the most important albums ever made. it's a real brain fart, as to why it wasn't included in the Rolling Stone Top 500 Greatest Albums Ever Made issue, but oh well... and in second place is the album, Lark's Tongues In Aspic. this was a later album that was made almost entirely by a different lineup, but non the less brilliant. dig this...

have a great weekend...
