Gotit Paxi !
So what was the prog content of your vacation ?
Well, nothing really progressive about my vacation: Gerolstein, Germany, for the eleventh time or something... But it's always very relaxing.
And of course I took a lot of music with me (on my MPIO MP3 player, as well as the physical disc for car playing
My dad really enjoys IQ now and then, so when I popped The Seventh House in the car player he didn't tell me to shut (it) off/up. He did even whistle along.
Same goes for the Ray Wilson cds, of which we both have fond memories.
I also got him (and the rest in the car) to listen to the second disc of Neal Morse's Testimony. When the tracks In The Middle and The Storm came in, even my little brother (11) asked if we could play those songs again.
Roine Stolt's Wall Street Voodoo did very well too. But Liquid Tension Experiment didn't stay long in the player. ("Please, not this kind of music!" (Dad), "Turn it off!" (little brother) and "Do they call this music?" (Mum)).
Threshold (Subsurface) was not very popular either. At first they didn't complain very much (just the occasional sighs and "Do we have to listen to this?") but then we got lost in a big city (hopelessly searching for a parking spot) and there was a lot of frustration and then my dad said "Get that noise out!". So the rest of the day I didn't even think about playing another disc in the car again.
Even Edenbridge got a spin! And the family didn't complain (only with the second song, which is possibly the heaviest, so I skipped it (to my regret)).
On the way home from Germany to The Netherlands I played Porcupine Tree's In Absentia. My dad can appreciate it very much. Except for (of course) Wedding Nails (which I love, but I can imagine).
Ah well... the life of a young progger in a non-prog family car.
No real vacation for me this summer, as I just started in ISS Facility Services, trimmin lawns and bushes (the big ones, if that helps)
We can tell by the way you walk.
