Ha ha, I was just noticing that myself.  I guess with the new theme, I was taking an extra minute to two to poke around and check things out.

Yeah. This has been a project I have simply not had time to dedicate to doing properly in the last few months as the science career kinda got in the way. I think I will need to find a stop gap in the next couple of months though to update the thing.

Nah. Dream Theater just needs to stop releasing albums to give you a chance to ketchup
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I can't tell if this was intentional or not

Not REALLY official, but pretty close.  Explanations here: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=43044.0

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Yeah, err... I used to handle most of that with Jen.  I would just do all the substance and then send the info to Jen, and she would then update the page.

Over the past few years I've kind of fallen out of the intense habits of collecting and keeping my own ridiculously thorough discography, so I guess I deserve a lot of the blame for this one...

Hey, does anyone else read "Discography section" and mentally abbreviate it to "Disco section" or is it just me?







Oh.  I see.

Lol.  Is Jen even still active on here anymore?  I'm not enough of a regular anymore to even know who still posts regularly...

Still working on it. There are a lot of albums to convert to the new format I am working on.
