Think about this...........could be fun!!!

Here in the UK we have a radio show called "Desert Island Disks".

People go on the show and talk about bits of music and items that they would HAVE to have to survive alone on an island.

So..........

Let's start Aural Moons own version:

Sea of Tranquility Disks

You're going to be marooned on The Sea of Tranquility.

Give:

1) FIVE albums you would take.
2) A book you would HAVE to have to keep you sane. And...
3) One "Special" item you would want with you. This can be ANYTHING at all. For example, Peanut Butter or A painting by Dali or ANYTHING.

Happy thinking.

Britney for the pictures...

I had done this more than two years ago on another forum, so I went looking and here's what I found:

Kansas-Leftoverture
Pat Metheny-First Circle
Maria Schneider-Allegresse
Sibelius-2nd Symphony
Sting-Dream of the Blue Turtles

I think I'll stick with those for now...

oy, forgot the book and special thing...

Lord of the Rings

an iBook with a solar panel. (or is that two things...)

found it

Actually, it wasn't desert island; it was top five classic prog albums:

"1. Yes - Relayer
2. Yes - Going for the One
3. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
4. Pink Floyd - Meddle
5. Oldfield - Tubular Bells

That's not exactly definitive."

I forgot to mention...........

The facility exists to play your CDs but there's nowhere to plug other electrical equipment in. Batteries won't work there either so iPods and other musical equipment won't work. Think again you smart arses.

remember roger and I requested solar powered ibooks, which unless we're on the dark side of the moon, we ought to be OK.

Oh, why not.

My 5 albums:[list=1][*]Illusions on a Double Dimple - Triumvirat[*]Thick as a Brick - Jethro Tull[*]California Screamin' - Dixie Dregs[*]Misplaced Childhood - Marillion[*]Tales from a Topographic Ocean - Yes[/list=1]

Book:

A PowerBook (I'd have said that anyway, regardless of whoever else said it)

Special Item:

A special magical black box that provided unlimited internet access for my powerbook. I'm assuming that I'd have some power source, since it'd be useless to take the albums without some way of playing them...

Just a castaway

5 cd's
Yes - Close to the Edge
Eno - Music For Airports
Arlo Guthrie - Hobo's Lullaby
Boards of Canada - Music has the Right to Children
John Michael Talbot - Come to the Quiet

Book - the Bible

Special item - Family photo

I'm a guy of changing moods so I couldn't stick with all prog selections. There's a simple joy I get from hearing the folk songs sung on this Arlo Guthrie album. Likewise with the JMT album. Alone on an island, your bound to do some thinking about God and this one would be appropriate
And I suppose one wouldn't need a clean change of underwear since you could wash the pair you're wearing - and there would be no one there to share it with anyway. Ya - I will opt for no clean underwear as a non-choice
