I wonder how long it'll take kitkat to learn that Waters did NOT invent the wheel, discover fire and write the Beatles catalogue*?

















*according to Nick Mason, that was Gilmour. :lol:
WATERS name is spelled all capitols, gods like that.


Oddly the Beatles first 3 albums are pretty good.

I disagree.

I think it is slightly sacriligious to use Waters' name....even with all caps.

To avoid the overly repetitious of his name, sorta like Mohammed, it is preferable and more reverential and proper to not use Roger Water's name at all...except in certain circumstances. It is more proper to simply refer to him as The Genius. By using the term, The Genius, we all know what you mean....and it sure in hell aint his former guitar player or his untalented yoko-like pothead wife.

What the hell??? You mean all this time when you used the term "The Genius" you were actually talking about Roger Waters!!!!?

I thought there was a consensus among PF conosiuers about there only being one (1) genius in the history of the band, and that was Waters' former guitar player: Roger "Syd" Barrett! The other Roger was just a neurotic perfectionist with a lot of emotional traumas, but it seems psycotherapy got rid of that, hence his total lack of decent output since the early 90s. Glad for him though.

Nah, that Barrett dude wrote songs like "Flaming".

From "Flaming":

"Alone in the clouds all blue
Lying on an eiderdown.
Yippee! You can't see me
But I can you.

Lazing in the foggy dew
Sitting on a unicorn.
No fair, you can't hear me
But I can you.

Watching buttercups cup the light
Sleeping on a dandelion.
Too much, I won't touch you
But then I might."


Nuff said. :lol: :roll: <.8.> <.8.> <.8.> :roll: :lol: <.8.>

Quite right.

i spoke and fell into a dream

What shall we use to fill the empty spaces
Where waves of hunger roar
Shall we set out across this sea of faces
In search of more and more applause

Shall we buy a new guitar
Shall we drive a more powerful car
Shall we work straight  through the night
Shall we get into fights
Leave the lights on
Drop bombs
Do tours of the East
Contract diseases
Bury bones
Break up homes
Send flowers by phone
Take to drink
Go to shrinks
Give up meat
Rarely sleep
Keep people as pets
Train dogs
Race rats
Fill the attic with cash
Bury treasure
Store up leisure
But never relax at all
With our backs to the wall

You know something dude...in all my years I never read the lyrics to that tune.

Freaking awesome.

A great read. A great song. An inspiring set of words.

Awesome.

They shouldve figured out a way to fit that into the studio album. Better than Bring The Boys Back Home or The Trial damn it.

Wow...BTBBH has been described by Aristotle as the KEY song of the album.

And here you are suggesting that it should be displaced by a song that Plato said was left off of the album because he decided that it was actually "rather banal."

Let's stop with all this "Roger Waters is a genius" crap. Don't make him out to be more than he is; a good lyricist (although a poor musician, singer, and composer).

You'll need no reminding from me. I'm clearly asking to get my ass kicked, I'm just waiting for someone to step up and do it.

*ahem*

Weren't you the guy who started the thread displaying example of Waters' creative genius failing to manifest?

How soon before we get to see the youtube video of your self-inflicted ass kicking? :D
