Heeeere we aaare, born to be fops. We’re the ponces of the univeeeeerse

Guys, I bet you 137 dollars that BOTH The Winds* of Winter and A Dream of Spring will be on your tables before this gig has wrapped up. Not because I’m a procrastinating buffoon (which I am), nor because I keep being side-tracked by roulettes (let’s congratulate TAC, people), but mainly because our guys keep writing albums! They live for writing music! They will never be a nostalgia act! I can’t stop using escalmatives! Speaking of new albums, I feel I’m being robbed of my role of Explorer of the Ludicrous lately, for whatever DT Fandom parody (including the multi-awarded DT Custom Shop bit) I’ve dared to illustrate on these pages is focking PALING in comparison with the surreal spectacle of actual DT fans needing info/making demands/judging clues/assessing data about an upcoming album in 2019. It’s glorious, and I can’t get enough of it. I feel like William Golding watching an episode of Survivor.

Ok, now I’m warmed-up enough for our detective stroy’s ending. What we “know” so far:

Nicholas is Kevin Moore
The Old Man is Charlie Dominici
Victoria is Shirley (Images and Words)
Julian is Old Moses (Awake)
Edward is Two Morons (Falling into Infinity)

So, Awake focked Images and Words and Falling into Infinity possibly killed it. Kevin Moore (and we are calling SFAM “Kevin Moore Face”), as the tragedy’s prime mover, is haunted by the task of solving a crime he has theoretically committed. He’s also Victoria’s reincarnation.

(Ok, maybe this thread still IS the most ludicrous thing going in the forums, after all)

Now, who the Fock is The Hypnotherapist? Who’s Julian’s reincarnation? Who’s Edward’s reincarnation?

Let’s find out in: 12 – Finally Free:

0:00 – 0:27: Full therapy circle. We are learning that regression sessions begin strumming and end in arpeggios. I can feel my evil delusional twin has something to say about this little speech.

Oh, that’s rich. You’ve just focking compared yourself to William Golding and have the gall to call ME delusional! Anyway,  dear hypnoquack, there’s nothing to feel peaceful and refreshed about. Our Kevolas still doesn’t know how the dirty deed went, and you’re blatantly trying to whitewash this shit with new age blabber. I’m onto you.

0:27 –  1:04: Oh, what a nice little symphonic bit devoted to a simple stroll from hypnostudio to car. They should definitely write some kind of musical sooner or later. It would be nothing short of astonishing.

He’s in the parking lot  and he’s just sitting in his car, it’s nine o’clock and he can’t get out.  He lights a cigarette and turns the music down, but just can’t seem to shake that sound.

1:04 – 1:31: Suspenseful music, shit is gonna happen. Nice Wagner quote, Jordan. Aiming higher and higher.

Melody walks through the door, and MEMORY flies out the window

1:31 – 2:18: He plays like a pianist, but thinks like a composer. Listen to the right hand comments between bars, they are embrios of strings parts on a full orchestral score already living in his mind. A mind Johnny P is apparently able to read like a sheet, given that beautiful guitar line. I am now officially pumped for DT’s future songwriting endeavors.

Dear Edward, you may be a Senator, a Miracle, but mastermind you’re not. First off, you’re putting a note in YOUR own handwriting on the crime scene in order to cover YOUR tracks? You’re probably going to reincarnate into the guy who wrote Lost’s finale, buddy.

2:18 – 2:50: We’re in full Elton John / Musical territory here, and I love it. A lot of people will love it. Hell, everybody will love it. Of course, 15 years from now they will hate it because “the wrong Mike is behind the drumkit and we need to piss on the band”. Unbelievable.

Second, that’s bad poetry, Ned. You could get the electric chair just for that.

2:50 – 3:15: Let this be the Mike Portnoy Sets the Bar for Tasty Drum Entrances Once and For All Album. SFAM is Mighty Mike's peak, as far as drumming maturity and balance are concerned. For a lot of aspects this is HIS album.
 
Oh, you ran into Julian? Was it before of after showering the Miracle’s body fluids away? I don’t like to speak ill of the departed – even fictional – but has this lass had any narrative function so far other than being a rather fickle slut and a pissy ghost?

3:15 – 4:01: Big James is just OWNING the different characters singing schtick, and I love it. A lot of people will love it. Hell, everybody will love it. Of course, 15 years from now they will hate it because “the wrong Mike is behind the drumkit and we need to piss on the band”. Unbelievable.

This is not just your old fashioned love triangle gone bad story. There’s a deeper meaning here. Imagine Victoria is a world class drummer’s career, Julian a stellar but lately struggling band, and Edward a mediocre but incredibly popular and successful band. Victoria dumps Julian for Edward, Edward uses her for a time but doesn’t love her, Victoria tries to go back to Julian, Victoria/career killed. Ok, I’m rambling.

4:01 – 4:46: Mirror stares back hard, kill is just a friendly word … Sorry, couldn’t help it. But curiously appropriate.

So, the big mystery everybody already solved at Home is officially revealed. FII killed Shirley. Open your eyes, Victoria. It’s all about you, not me.

4:46 – 5:53: Absolutely brilliant theatrical use of OLT and callback to the ouverture guitar lick. Then again, they’ve being proceeding this way since IAW (Wait for Sleep inside LTL) and Awake (TSM inside Erotomania, SDV inside The Mirror), incidentally the two albums being fictionally gunned down this very moment. Guess what’s the album breaking the streak? Yeah, the gunner.

I agree.

5:53 – 6:27: The closest DT have ever written to Queen and Johnny P to Brian May, and I love it. A lot of people will love it. Hell, everybody will love it. Of course, 15 years from now they will hate it because “the wrong Mike is behind the drumkit and we need to piss on the band”. Unbelievable.

Nice image. Reminds me of The Quickening (hence the Queen reference?) But, what about the other soul? Where is it gone? We need to know or this is the most uneventful concept ever.

6:27 – 6:50: Go for the full blown band with James one octave up, do it! ...

So, you’ve learned you quitting compromised Awake and focked over IAW’s premises, leading to the FII identity crisis. You already knew that, bub. But WHY did you quit?

6:50 – 7:24: ... YES! This will become one of their most beloved compositional staples.

You won’t meet anybody someday soon unless you don’t tell us WHY you quit. WHOSE blame is it?

7:24 – 9:50: I Want You (She’s So Heavy) homage ending, with Mighty Mike rightfully etching his signature on his album. Gonna be heaps of fun live.

9:50 – 11:13: Except for noticing Nicholas’ records sound like midi files, I have nothing to say here.

So, Julian reincarnated into John John Kennedy. There’s no other explaination. Pretty ironic for reasons even I won't dare elaborating on.

11:13 – 11:59: We’ll let my deranged alter ego finally have his moment in the sun:

”Open your eyes, Kevin.

It’s me. It’s always been me.










Eat my ass and balls”



Coming Next: Scene 7: Through Her Ice - Graduation and the Black Bitch

I feel like Cheech standing at the urinal next to Stacy Keach. I've been waiting to "go" on this thread so long that now that it's here I've got stage fright...and that's really saying something for a guy with no prostate.

 :lol  :clap:

Okay, that was actually a really great update! I guess I'll need to keep holding it.

Why does it hurt when I pee

Totally agreed about MP. His best album I think, with Six Degrees in 2nd place.

<breezes into thread guilty as fock>

Gals and ghouls, I haven't forgotten this thing. There are still so many utterly ludicrous and pointless anecdotes I owe you. It's just that holidays are the proverbial bitch with my kind of job.

I promise I'm going to update this soon. Also, I never had sex with that woman, and we have proof Iraq is hiding weapons of mass destruction.

Stay classy.

Before anyone get's too excited, read the date.  :lol

The last time the holidays interfered with this thread, Indiscipline wound up taking a seven year leave of absence! The post I quoted was his last one before the thread eventually got locked and archived.

Eh.

No disappearing act this time.

Very busy touring and trying to stay with the family at the same time because Big Bro decided to give me YET another nephew (to be christened Jordan, for basketball reasons. I know, don't ask.) I swear, he's Walder Frey prolific.

I wish you a terrific new year, my friends.
