Re: kingcrimson in sf-no loop content...

Don't take what you saw in that movie too seriously.  As having worked on 
Home of The Brave, I will tell you a secret: They were all props.  The 
was totally staged.  Audience?  Paid extras.  Most of the audio had been
recorded before a single image went to celuloid.

Good movie?  You bet, I loved it.  Angry that although I worked for free 
as an
intern and got not a mention on fhe credits?  Sure was.  Hell, getting to
bullshit with Adrian Belew on a daily basis sure is sweet, though.  Adrian 
truely a nice guy, as were most of the musicians.  My one regret was that I
was young and spent most of the time stymied.

On the down side, I hate most of her new album (some loop content, as 
Couldn't get Bright Red out of my CD player, but half the songs on Life on 
String are unlistenable to me.  Sigh.  That's just me though, as I hated 
of Strange Angels, and others here liked it and didn't like Bright Red.  
going to take the stuff I like from both albums and make one good one 
Strange String.

BTW, while were're on the King Crimson topic, I LOVE Level Five and also 
"techno" album bpm&m.  (loop content on both) bpm&m is worth it for the
cartoons on the linernotes alone.  Behind the CD is an illustration of a 
"fly" Robert Fripp.  You'll have to get it to see what I mean.  VERY funny.
