"I love Buckethead but I am getting tired of always hearing the same songs.  I have been going to shows for well over a decade now and the setlist has been basically the same during that whole time.  It is time for Buckethead to start incorporating some of his new stuff in his live shows."

Explain to me how that is drivel.  None of it is false and none of it is offensive unless you are extremely sensative to anything that could possibly be taken as a criticism of Buckethead.

What is drivel is you acting like me being able to go to shows over the years is some blessing from Buckethead.  It wasn\'t an accident or a blessing from Buckethead that allowed me to see the shows;  I paid for the tickets.  It is too bad that others have not been able to go to shows but has nothing to do with me wanting to see something different at one of the shows.  His performances have gotten better over the years but his setlist has not greatly changed.  You say that you have never seen the exact same setlist, but I have never seen one that is more than 25% different.  There are probably 30 or fewer tacks that I could list from which over 75% of the setlist will come.  For an artist with over a thousand tracks that is very limited.  I\'d like to see some of the other tracks make it into the show.  I understand that a lot of what he releases on CD cannot be done adequately live, but there are still a ton of tracks he could do that he never does.  I\'d like to see some of them.

The comment about you not coming to the board was in response to your "don\'t go if you don\'t like it" statement.  The same holds for not liking my opinions.  Don\'t come here if you don\'t like them.  If you don\'t like this response, then maybe you should re-examine yours.

Honestly, you sound like a child who feels threatened when anyone states anything that could possibly be taken as negative about Buckethead.  Rest assured, I am not challenging him.  I love his music and greatly appreciate what he does for the fans.  Again, I would simply like to hear more of his music than he seems willing to do live.  I do not see why this is such an offensive position to you.

Screw that. If ya dont like it dont go, cause i get tired of hearing the same bitching over and over. I\'ve seen BH 10 times and had an ecstatic grin on my face each time.

Well if you get tired of it then no one should ever express their opinion because you are, after all, the most important person in the world and everything anyone does should be done with the thought of pleasing you.

Regardless, I was hardly "bitching."  I was expressing my opinion that he should mix up the setlist more.  He has hundreds of songs that he could play live that he never does.  I am not going to apologize for wishing to hear them and expressing that wish.  And if you hear this opinion all the time maybe it is because it has some merit.

Oh, and I have gone to more than 10 shows and enjoyed them all immensely.  That doesn\'t mean the shows couldn\'t be improved by a few different songs.  The shows are largely the same as they were a decade ago.  Given how many songs he has released since then I think that is disappointing.  If you don\'t like that opinion you can always not come to this board.

In my haste to get to the album I didn\'t even notice the stamp.

Credit card worked for me.

The samples sound intriguing.

So what is up with this album?  I thought we were going to get the names and official release in February.

Beautiful song.  Hopefully iTunes is also feeling charitable or only 8 cents or so is probably actually going to get to Buckethead and thus to the relief effort.

I said that about Bermuda Triangle but it is not a great comparison.  I just couldn\'t think of anything better as a comparison.  Anyway, it is really good and you should get it.  It is only $10.  You\'d spend that on a movie ticket or a lunch at a fast food place.

I have only listened to a little over half and have little idea how to describe it.  More electronic sounding than I expected, sort of like Bermuda Trianlge without the guitar.  Bleh, not a great comparison but...Anyway, I really like it so far.

QuoteNot going to make it so easy for you though.


Haha.  I love it.

Yeah, I almost never listen to the individual albums anymore.  When all stacked together it makes a really great ambient album.

So is International Sword Swallower day for people who swalolw international swords or for international people who swallow swords?  This is all very confusing to me.

Oh, and Happy Birthday Maximum Bob!
