Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    I don’t know why but I never get anything but a blank space inside a square with a little dark square in the upper left hand corner for your posts. I get redirected to music on other sites but never for you. I was wondering what you do different or what I could do to get the music.Report

      Hey @dexter – does this display for you?:

      If it doesn’t (or, even if it does) I can try to also include links to the videos in addition to embedding going forward, or try an alternate embed method.Report

    Glyph, Yes it does. What did you do differently? Thanks.Report

      Hey @dexter – I used the newer YouTube embed code, which usually displays for everybody (the old code allows faster page loads and all kinds of customization wrt size, start/end times, and streaming quality, but doesn’t show up on some mobile devices) but also causes really slow page loads, especially if there are a lot of them.

      I’ll see what I can do going forward – like I said, worst case scenario I could just also include links in the post to take you straight over to YT, if the embed isn’t showing for you.Report

    I can see what annoyed Elvis Costello so much about them. It’s not totally obvious how great a band they are, though they’d put out two great collections of songs at that point. Sounds weird—is Sting’s (fretless?) bass so loud in the venue that it’s turned way down in the mix?

    Made me think of this.Report

      That Onion bit is a classic. I still refer to “The Tepid Heart” sometimes. Before one of the most venerable record shops in the area shuttered, they had a copy of that piece on Sting’s divider in the CD bins.Report
