If someone needs a progressive rock with fuzzy warm positive feelings to listen to, to alleviate some winter blues, I recommend: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Absolute_Universe
Nice! I recognize several of the members and enjoyed their previous work in other bands so I'll def. check that out!
Thanks for the tip. I knew some radio hits of the band "Yes" before this last year, but have since learned a lot more about their song list -- amazing group.
I'm trying to connect Yes and Transatlantic in my mind and failing... connection?
Yeah, I got the genre but thought maybe there was a deeper connection. I saw Transatlantic has a former Marillion member -- I saw them live at my university (back in the '80s!) -- plus a couple of Dream Theater guys.
Only Mike Portnoy is from Dream Theater, but he left 10 years ago already. It's still what he's most known for though
Ah, I misread the piece about Neal Morse. Yeah, Portnoy turned up in something else I was listening to just the other day. I just added that album to my YT music library to listen to later. Thanks!
I was wondering whatever happened to prog. and whether it would ever make a comeback. (I’ve been listening to the Alan Parsons Project all week - that probably counts as “prog lite”, despite being concept-heavy.) I will check this out.
@U6BUSDFMX I would definitely put early APP in the prog bucket but they certainly became a lot more mainstream later on (I'm a massive fan and have all their albums).
I think my introduction to them was The Instrumental Works which I find slightly anodyne. On the other hand, Tales of Mystery and Imagination is wonderful.
So, completely left field: one of my kids is turning 30 in a few weeks (not even my first to turn 30, so yes I am that old). He’s an engineer (aeronautics) and we are thinking of getting him a 3D printer. Any recommendations for a starter one that isn’t too basic? He knows his way around tools and computers. But he also has a small London flat. Massive fumes wouldn’t be good.
Asking here instead of, say, Twitter, because my son is less likely to see it.
No idea, but I just wanted to say that it seems like a great present for a 30 year old engineer. 😎👌
Its been a while since I dabbled in that area, but back when I did: Prusa was the recommendation for cheaper/open-source and últimakers were the fancy all-in-one solutions
I am beginning to settle on the Ender 3 -- the budget being in the £300-£400 range.
Actually, sorry, it was this one that I was settling on: https://www.box.co.uk/Flashforge-Adventurer-3-3D-Printer_2367726.html
I'm not surprised there are channels on Clojurians Slack that I never thought to look for 🙂
