FMD: The End

"When was the first time you realized the next time would be the last time ?"
-Palace Brothers

Since I never got around to a plan, this will be my last post and then we'll hand off duties as such:
Hungry Joe: October 2-October 30
MagUidhir: November 6-December 4
Philosopher: December 11-January 8
Freealonzo: January 15-February 12
Nibbish: February 19-March 18

Five weeks per person. (If we get more volunteers, the next two get March 25-April 22 and April 29-May 27.)
After the rotation, we'll see how things are going.

    *Notes:
    In my post, as well as this letter, "Palace" (or "Palace Brothers, "Palace Music", "Palace Songs", etc.) is Will Oldham's pre-"Bonnie 'Prince' Billy" band that was functionally a solo project with a rotating cast (including his brothers Paul and Ned on some but not all).

    2. Not:
    “Sweet (Dreams of You)”,
    “(Sweet) Dreams of You”,
    “(Sweet Dreams of) You”, or
    “(Sweet) Dreams (of You)”.
    4. Wondering about capitalization vs. hyphenation. "No-One" shows in the wikipedia entry, but in avian nomenclature, the second word of a hyphenated compound is not capitalized: "Eastern Screech-owl", "Western Wood-Pewee", "Chestnut-sided Warbler", and "Red-winged Blackbird".
    5. From the film Cool World.
    6. This is a song I've neglected, as it wasn't self-covered on Greatest Palace Music, but I'm listening to it a lot right now and singing it to myself.
    7. Tim McGraw cover (apparently).
    9. Soundtrack

    1. You rang? I'm just trying to figure out why no one is hyphenated in the first place. I get that the song title is in vernacular English, but there's still no need for a hyphen.

      That question aside, my sources say that if we're going to accept the hyphen, "No-One" is the correct casing.

      1. I've seen "No-One"/"No-one" plenty in old newspapers, but not in current usage.

        Weirder still to my modern eye are "to-day" and "to-morrow".

            1. Oh sure, just force me to consult the OED. Interestingly, while Merriam-Webster's has the word as "good-bye," the OED spells it "goodbye." M-W does list "good-by" as a variant (scroll down). Go back far enough (1595), and you get "godbyes" as in "To requite your gallonde of godbwyes, I regive you a pottle of howedyes."

              The etymology seems to be a shortening of "God be with you" and "God be with ye."

        1. Basically, we have three options for these kinds of words: “cooperate,” “co-operate,” and “coöperate.” Back when the magazine was just getting started, someone decided that the first misread and the second was ridiculous, and adopted the diaeresis as the most elegant solution with the broadest application. The diaeresis is the single thing that readers of the letter-writing variety complain about most.

          From "The Curse of the Diaresis" by Mary Norris.

          1. Curse? It's great that some journal of such note has such a distinctive house style.
            And it's great that someone's keeping the diaresis flame burning, like one of the last speakers of a minor language.

    I was also given a recommendation to check out Tribulation from Spooky, but Amazon prime music is teh dumps and I haven't even been able to find them on there.

  5. Query: Has anyone heard the new albums from Low or Lana Del Rey yet?
    I keep meaning to. If you've heard the Low, please compare to other albums and say what you thought of them. (For example, if you hated The Great Destroyer, I'll disregard your comments.)

    1. Same question from me about the new Low album. I am disgruntled with all my current music, which is a sure sign I need to pick up a few new albums. I just need to decide what they'll be.

    1. I gave you five weeks to learn more music. Or, free's already said he might serialize an essay on GbV. You could do that for Sturge.
      I was more worried about giving Phil a shot.

        are we actually supposed to be responding to the FMD prompts? thought it was more like the COC prompts, where no one reads 'em until someone accidentally does/feels compelled to and then responses are generated...

        1. You mean like how no one's actually discussing coming to my rugby match? Some group of "friends" you guys are. 😉

        2. more like the COC prompts, where no one reads 'em until someone accidentally does/feels compelled to

          Heh, that was one of the most confusing this place when I started lurking. I kept thinking, "but why do the replies have nothing to do with the topic at hand?"

            1. See, that's where we differ. I find most IPAs overhopped and unbalanced. I prefer a more mellow, nuanced beer.

                  1. We really could probably replace our conversations with a random generator limited to a small number of topics.
