We are (not surprisingly) sounding a lot like our parents, who were appalled at the cost of things when compared to what they cost in their youth.

Naming the precious mineral 'Unobtanium" was jarring to me, too. I couldn't accept that they would choose such a stupid name, so I googled it. It turns out that "unobtainium" is an actual word, used by engineering and scientist types to describe the material they need to make their elegant but usele...

It is hard to say exactly how Ewya functions from the limited clues given in the movie. All of those animals didn't just appear at the end of the movie by chance to turn the tide of battle.

There are not too many "cultural events" these days. One side-effect of the internet is that everyone seems to seek out their own personal interests and focus on them exclusively. YesTalk is one example of this. But Avatar has been such a huge box-office success that hopefully there would be other f...

I haven't seen the DVD, but the CD from that tour also features Michael Brecker in addition to Jaco and Pat, and you are certainly correct. It does not get much better than that.

Re: "We're playing this track for you....

The thought had certainly occured to me that, with progressive rock, you sometimes need multiple listenings to understand and appreciate what is going on. So maybe I should not be so quick to thumbs down a tune. On the other hand, Pandora openly encourages you to approve or disapprove what the track...

Hi N2! Looks like things are overly calm around here with the band not having toured or produced a new album for so long. Hopefully, the announcement of this summer's tour will bring people like myself back into the fold, and the Chat Room will be reborn again!
