If You Can't Stand the Heat

Well my last post seems to be taking off like a lead ( pb ) balloon (or should I have said zeppelin?)

I predict a similar fate for this one.

Some of you out there have an uncanny (cannot be canned) ability to seemingly immediately get ahold of what seem to me to be "obscure oldies" ( MP3's ) so this is a test of sorts to see how good you really are at this skill.

To really begin to "get me" musically requires that you are familiar with at least this song that I'll bet almost none of you have ever heard.

It's by Bill Bruford and the title is "If You Can't Stand the Heat". I've always wanted to see poeple attempt to dance to this one.

This could almost be called my signature song. Almost.

Anyone who does get ahold of it please let me know what you think. And the first to name the lead instrument it features wins an imaginary prize.

24” tuned gong?

Hi ediesedgewick,

You are in the ballpark by guessing a percussion instrument but it ain't quite a gong that leads the way in If You Can't Stand the Heat.

I've always wanted to see people try dancing to this song.

Dance for me, this in the background.
LOL What would that be like?

Well, I have never heard the song and therefore would have no idea what the instrument would be. Therefore, I'm going to guess 'gamelan'. Or a dulcimer.

Now that I've been on topic, do you suppose it would be terribly declasse to to harassle you for a new update to your blog? It's all gone a bit quiet on the KC_II front and I need my fix.

Wow, [blog emmie234] scores a major one here with her xylophone answer,

Either two things happened here and both are impressive in my book. Here's how I can only see it.

1. You actually took the time and made the effort to look it up with a search engine and located the song and listened to it.

The odds are incredibly bad of this next one being the case but I do grant that it is indeed possible but still WAY improbable.

2. You actually were familiar with the song before my mentioning it here.

Here is yet another ridiculously gargantuan improbabitity. I would actually like to team up with Twyla Tharp and try to get a company of world class dancers to make up an avante garde dance piece for this song. If Twyla and friends can't do it then nobody can.

Anyway in your honor of this great feat, [blog emmie234], I will take a "post request" from you and will dedicate a whole post entry to something that you suggest to me. It can be some weird topic that is of special interest to you or you can do something like ask me an embarassing (or not embarassing) question or two or request that I photograph myslef naked while standing on my head or something of that general nature. So feel free to begin making suggestions to me so I can beging coming up with your "prize" posting.

Hey Transblucency,

Well you were right in the general ballpark with the Gamelan and Dulcimer guesses. About the only closer answers to that would would have been vibraphone or marimba.

Doesn't Gamelan sound like some mutant nuclear monster that should have either fought or teamed up with Godzilla?

And I will now oficially break my postfast due to the fact that you seem to be Jonesing for a fix of my blog. Addiction to my blog does not seem to be so prevalent but I do know that there are a few isolated cases.

Hey, It's the No Holes Bard!

I'm certain that Bill Bruford has used Zildjian Cymbals so your almost partially correct.

Someone told me an evil idle roomer (or is that rumor?) that you once were a starving songwriter on the streets of Nashville. I realize that rumour had been passed around the blogger wine vine and is now probably all bent out of shape from it's original from but is there any truth to that?

I too have shared your thought regarding Godzilla VS Gamelan as I doubt we can be the only ones. Perhaps even fought with, then teamed up with?

Oh, and also i am unable to think of the word dulcimer without prefacing it with "she was an Abyssinian maid..."

And yeah, color me a fan of your blog. There, I said it.

Being a fan of new and unusual music, you definetly had my curiousity with the description of this tune. Sad to say, I did not know this obscure jazz tune. I found it fairly easily and downloaded it. Now, what would I like as my prize....licking my lips. LOL.
I am going to take a bit of time, and get back with you. I want to make it worth while.
Jumping up and down with excitement! I never win anything!
WOOOHOOOOOO!!!!

My request is for erotica, as I am insatiable as of late. Portray your favorite fantasy for me. Very hot, spicey and creative are my only requests. Oh, and please include background music. That seems appropriately challenging.
Impatiently awaiting my reward,

Hi ~E~,

That's a mighty stiff order for a blog entry. Particularly the background music which, as far as I can figure it, will have to be by suggestion only. There are some other options though that I might explore but doing that most likely add some time to it's point of delivery.

But I now will begin the adventure of doing this and I'll see if I can get anything worthy of the request up hopefully some time this weekend.

Hey Transblucency,

I'm delayed on a new entry still. I did an experiment over the last few daze that relates to your own blog title Procrastinator X.

I discovered that if you wish to become a supreme and master procrastinator that spending your time sucked up into the inane realm of blogging is a very efficient way of quickly achieving that aim.

And my experiment was to see if putting a full stop on blogging activities for a few days had any perceivable effect on the amount of real world activities and chores that I completed.

The end result was.... I think in 3 or 4 days I got about as much done as had been taking up to a month for me to do when fully sucked up by the big blogging machine.

I still want to try out a double blind/placebo type test with this as well.

If a new entry doesn't appear by later today I'll surgically attach a third ear to my head which is modeled after the ear cut off by Vincent Van Gochhhhh (spelling intented to simulate the actual expectoratorial "hocking up a lugi" tones which the native Dutch actually make when saying that name.

Background music is only to be listed. I thought it fitting with the "contest". I look forward to your fantasy.

I completely buy into the results of your experiment. You've expressed my key reason for calling my blog Procrastinator X, as whether I post in it or not it could still be interpreted as procrastination. Long researched posts could be as much procrastination as not posting in it at all...

KC..oh, you and that other bloke do go on a bit, don't you, hUn?

Frame by Frame, by King Crimson is a fantastic album!!!

Bill being a rate good drummer boy..must be something percussion-ish..quite a few to chose from there, I think.

Luv n stuff {=} Susie {=}

Well well Miss Lancashire,

Yes and that bloke is truly a bloke as well coming from your own home regions of Union Jack-land. By any purists standard I think the bloke's been slightly "tainted" by his overexposure to all things Yankee. But screw the purists! He's tainted for the better I'd say as it's not always such a bad thing to slighly "unbritify" oneself is it? I'd certainly not call it a crime. But that's just me.

Sorry for that nearly irrelevant derailment.

Well you sure gone and done it now Miss Q! I still don't know why but I've been eyeing you with quite a good deal of suspicion ever since you waltzed in from apparently out of nowhere into the tranquil yet subtlely bizarre waters of my blog leaving behind a enduring wake of inexplicable and not yet definable mystery.

And then you come an do this!

You leave behind some irrestable bait of the likes of King Crimson?"!!!

The Audacity! That fully implies that prior to this posting you full well knew of Bill Bruford and his status in world of music. And you go so far as to suggest an album that I'm ashamed to admit I've never heard!

I'm nearly now pushed to scream "who sent you?" and "CONSPIRACY!!!" but that would indeed be jumping the gun. And now while my paranoia buttons been oficially pushed what does that cryptic captital 'U' in 'hUn?' up there stand for? As that little smiley face cackles at me sadistically. I'll surely lose sleep over that one.

Alright MissSuzieQ this warrants some further investigation. And if you happen to know anything about Ian ANderson this case really might have the potential to explode right in my face.

I now officially code name it ambrosia.
