    If you could set the rules for all music, what would you decree?

    I would ban talking during songs, e.g. "accidental" studio banter captured on tape during the intro or outro, spoken lyrics, interjections, etc ... Same thing with prolonged sound effects with no instrument played or singing.

    What about you?

    (You can't say ban any style of music or artist. We're done with hating.)

    I would like a rockabilly radio station.
    Run by actual people.
    And they’d be paid well.

    Music programs will be available and encouraged in schools again.

    And all guitars will have a TV Jones pickup option when purchased.o_O

  6. As czar, i would declare all music is good. However, you can choose to listen to it or not.

    Not just studio banter, but "found" audio like clips from old films...it can be interesting once. Not more.

    I would also rule that alternate takes had to appear on a different cd than the released takes. I don't really want to hear 6 alternate takes of a jazz tune in a row.

    Students in grade 4 would no longer be sent home to unsuspecting parents with a recorder, aka "Satan's Whistle"

    I might allow Slim Whitman just in case the Martians attack.

    Agree, but remember that it was a Slim Whitman recording that saved the world in "Mars Attacks!"

    Edit: Aww you beat me to it! I didn't read the whole thread before replying. o_O:D

    I knew I was going to like that movie when, at the beginning, the one guy says, "Do you smell barbeque?" just before the herd of flaming cows runs by.

    ACK-ACK!

    Quite probably the last movie in which Jack Nicholson actually acted like a character, rather than himself, in at least one of his two roles.

    What! What about Ray Stevens? We can't ban his music or stories or whatever you want to call it.
