Have you heard the first track off the new Goats? The whole album is apparently about wrestling seen through the lens of youth and then adulthood.

Y'know how we have some grylliaders who get totally freaked out by pictures/video of spiders? I'm totally cool with (most) spiders. Snakes, no problem. Seeing my own blood? Not a big deal.

But this is my kill it with fire moment*

Could only take a minute of that. It's not the thing itself that bugs me, it's the off camera dicks being dicks I can't deal with.

Douchery I can deal with. But holy fuck. I'm not all that claustrophobic from simple tight spaces. But if there's any question of me not getting through them/out of them at my immediate desire to do so, that's a world of nope. Could not be a caver in any but the most beginnery of caves. I've gone exploring in lava tubes, but I want a good six inches of clearance in all directions for any entry/egress. Preferably plenty of space for two people to pass so some other jackass can't block me in.

Were you ever shoved into a school locker? What impact do you feel that experience (or lack thereof) has on your claustrophobia?

Nope. I don't think there was any traumatic thing. If there was, it was early enough that I don't remember it. Maybe I tried to get under a bed that I was no longer small enough to get under, and kinda panicked. I vaguely remember something like that, but again, I think it was more the result of the fear of getting stuck than the cause of it.

The trauma of your own birth? Now, why you would be traumatized by that, and not a lot of other people by their own, is a good question...

Wow, there's a lot of dirty music from way back then. Do conservatives know about this?

I had a brief moment of something similar, then I thought "why are you freaking out, you wouldn't fit through to get in the cave, let alone get stuck trying to come out" and I felt better.

Did your band make you play some Eagles music? Did it make you have Stockholm Syndrome?

(our band has agreed to never play any Eagles again. Soooo boooooring)

The band called Eagles are victims of their rather remarkable success. If their Greatest Hits album didn't have sales numbers approaching Michael Jackson's Thriller, reasonable people might reasonably conclude they're a good soft rock, California sound band from the early 70s with a half dozen or so really very good songs performed with some really very good harmonies.

As it is, however, they've been way overexposed on classic rock stations and by covers and, as a result, a song like 'Hotel California' that was understandably a hit when it was released now ranks with 'Freebird' and 'Stairway to Heaven' and is perilously close to 'Inna Godda Da Vida', a song the world would be better off never, ever hearing again, even while tripping.

I took the family to the Eagles concert in Dallas last year and a large, age diverse audience, ourselves included, thoroughly enjoyed it. (Especially Joe Walsh's 'Life's Been Good', which remains a favorite of mine.)

I will never ever say anything that could be interpreted as suggesting that DAR is correct.

But despite being overplayed, Stairway is a fucking great song (as is Freebird, if I'm honest, and I might even have "Simple Man" lurking in my MP3 folder).

My hatred of the Eagles didn't really flourish until PBS/KERA started running The Eagles 25th Anniversary Reunion Concert non stop during pledge drive. Thanks for pre-empting Nova or Frontline or even your endless re-runs of Are You Being Served? to play lame Boomer yacht rock so that you can get some of that sweet VH1 skrilla. Brit Floyd gets the same condemnation, but Pink Floyd isn't nearly as overplayed, and was never as formulaic.

"Stairway is a fucking great song" is a true statement but unrelated to the fact that it's been played to death over the years. For that matter, Led Zeppelin is "Boomer ... rock", too.

Beyond that, holding the Eagles responsible for PBS trying to cash in on their popularity is silly. Should Henley, who keeps a house in Dallas, have called KERA and told them to stop because it was embarrassing?

Ninety nine percent of popular music is formulaic. Dylan probably used I-IV-V progressions, throwing in a VI or a 7th chord for color, in at least a third to a half of his songs. Who the hell didn't?

To each his own.
