Nabby: GREAT record
Alexikopf the Munificent: Y'know, when that album first came out, I was unimpressed for some reason. As the years passed, it became one of my favorites.
Nabby: Loved Wyrd Sisters, Guards Guards, Mort...
shoes for the dead: true, Tween and they ship FAST!!
Cat: you have great radio enunciation, tween.
EWeston: A good series. I forgot the name of that cheeze that joined the pixies

Cat: whether good or bad, he output was vast
residualecho: If it's visuals you're after, you could do worse than watching Hogfather on Netflix
Nabby: Hogfather was fun
DJTweeny: 'clairafornia' lol
EWeston: A new reader has much to look forward to.
Alexikopf the Munificent: I interviewed Pratchett in the late '90s. I asked him if he knew Vimes had all that in him. He said yes, but that he wasn't going to be the original star of Guards Guards.
residualecho: Bergman was the original wizard of oz, the tongue that could never be told a lie
Alexikopf the Munificent: He just took over the book.
Cat: alex, i ha ve no idea what you';re talking about
pinholeF200: how many have seen MC5 live?
EWeston: Captain Vimes, later Duke Vimes Cat
shoes for the dead: on a vid, pin
residualecho: Only spinning around on vinyl. does that count?
Alexikopf the Munificent: And at first: very very drunk Vimes.
Cat: i played them on the radio and tried not to get fired, pin
DJTweeny: not moi pinhole
pinholeF200: actually saw them live in 1969 at an "indoor rock festival"
EWeston: Prachett had the same problem with the Partritian
Cat: resid, not the original but i get your idea
DJTweeny: Cat, I assume Taylor Jessen was doing the music & effects for this?

Nabby: radio froz
residualecho: I don't think I've been this thrashed about the loss of a literary voice (Sir Pterry) since the loss of PB.
Cat: what pratchett novel should i start with, ew?
residualecho: What was your prob with Vetinari?
Alexikopf the Munificent: He was a walk-on in a Rincewind story.
lily: guards cat right ew
Alexikopf the Munificent: Death was supposed to be a one-time joke.
residualecho: Pterry's prob with Patrician
Alexikopf the Munificent: Pratchett's stuff grew on him, as it were.
Nabby: Guards is fun
Cat: taylor doing what, tween?
lily: cool alex
DJTweeny: The music & effects for this stage performance, Cat
Nabby: BBC radio aired a terrific audioplay version of Mort, and many others, including Guards --hear em?
EWeston: They all work in isolation. The first or six or so are early versions of the latr memes. But starting with the first is as good as anywhere
Cat: not sure about that, tween.
residualecho: There's a lovely interview with Neil Gaiman by Michael Chabon from the day we lost Pterry, about Pterry telling Neil he was done with Discworld, but Gaiman said he wanted to hear more about Death. A week later the phone rang. "Damn you! It's called "Mort"
Cat: he is their guy, but i'm not sure about the time frame
Alexikopf the Munificent: One more reason to adore Neil.
Alexikopf the Munificent: (Not to mention his wife.)
EWeston: Yah try Guards Guards and go from there
Cat: elayne insisted i read sandamn. i am forever grateful
pinholeF200: Heeeee's readyyyyyyy
residualecho: A standalone that has little to do with Discworld, is "Good Omens" which I can't believe anybody hasn't already read
EWeston: Yes echo that's a good story
residualecho: Good Omens is mostly Pratchett after a first few pages from Neil, because Neil was busy plotting Sandman
residualecho: Not that Neil didn't get a lot in, it's just that Pterry had more time.
Cat: sandman opened up a possibility i had previously not seen
DJTweeny: what's it about?
residualecho: How so Cat?
lily: Yep Sandmans a treat
Cat: why does thqt wokr bett4er on audio thn on video?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: pictures in the mind, Cat
residualecho: Audio, even more than text, is mult-valent. You don't have to settle on one interpretation of the punne, or play on wyrds.
Cat: that you could do that visual and that story was new
residualecho: Pictures have to pick and choose, or at least complement the audio (in video) or text (in sequential art)
Cat: i celebrate my 50th year in radio this fall. Have always loved this medium
residualecho: I also thought that multiple artists taking a stab at the narrative added depth to Sandman
