Shit, I was regretting not having seen Bowie or Prince live before they died, but you just reminded me I saw Tin Machine back then.
They sound great, but every couple of years I hear "Take the long way home" or "Give a little bit" and think "I've got to listen to more Supertramp!". Then I do and remember, oh yeah, I only like those 2 songs. But they're good songs.
It's Dougie Thomson.
Strongly held Musical Opinion
Bass parts you don't notice at first that make the whole song; It wasn't until probably 15 years ago that I heard Supertramp's "Take the long way home" with fresh ears and realized half that song is the bass.
Unreliable narrator is pretty much my favorite thing in movies, books, because it's realistic to me. Everyone is an unreliable narrator.
Agreed. I haven't used Google anything in years, or Amazon, and never used Facebook.
It's really weird to me when people act like that's impossible, or I'm making some huge sacrifice. I don't even think about it and it's not an issue.
What year is that? There's probably video of me from the 80's playing those same songs in bars.

I'm not just being pessimistic, history tells us life is just like that. This is probably the beginning of a dark period.
I thought about Phoenix for a while, but couldn't find what I wanted and got turned off. I don't love it, that's for sure. It's kind of Orange Co. CA with no beaches. Not my vibe.
Pluses are; jobs, it's affordable for a big city, has everything, traffic is not terrible for it's size.
