DaveO Prog Rock Show.

Okay, on the 18th August I’ll be on the DaveO Prog Rock Show which runs from 10pm till midnight. Probably I’ll be talking a lot of nonsense about my books, SF and life the universe and everything in general, and listening to the likes of Pink Floyd. Here's the blurb and links to the show:

Neal, don't play "Mumps" by Hatfield & The North - you'll never have time to chat! ;-)

Will try and remember to tune in.

Off topic Neal but one of your favorite subjects - Climate change.

Freeman Dyson (physicist)has written a common sense article. Short version on El Reg - http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/08/14/freeman_dyson_climate_heresies/

Long version - http://www.edge.org/documents/archive/edge219.html#dysonf

Link chopped in two. It explains the stupidity, but not the statist malevolence.

Interesting, Olaf. Another link to try is this: http://www.ocregister.com/opinion/

...which is about NASA updating their 'hottest years' data. Apparently a slight error was made and the recent years have not been record breakers - the records still being held by summers of 70 years ago. Not much mention of this from the water melons, unsurprisingly.

Prog rock? Hmm let's see:

- Emerson, Lake & Asher
- Manfred Brass Man's Earth Band
- Marillion's "Script for a Skinner's Tear"
- King Crimson's "In the Wake of Dragon"
- anything by Jains Addiction :p
- Genesis' "Polity Collection"
- er... Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the (Runcible) Spoon"?

what about bands like Van Haiman and The Polity, songs like I Skinned the Sheriff and Jain in a bottle (ok, not rock), and books by Cormac Empathy? don't forget these fine specimens.
