    Not really prog related in the strictest sense (then again neither are some of these other posts) but has anyone here noticed the Farmers Commercial on tv that sort of pokes fun at John Cage's 4'33?

    Neat! I don't remember which ProgDay it was, but I am so glad I went the year that SMM played! Turned me into a fan.

    It was 2003. I don't know who filmed it, but you can find the entire performance on YouTube.

    Brian Eno's name used to turn up a lot in the TV Guide crossword puzzle. Or at least it seemed that way.

    While waiting in the doctors office today I heard "hocus pocus" by Focus playing on some tv show. I think the show had the word ghost or ghosts in the title but I don't remember exactly what. I'm pretty sure it was a cable show or netflix show or something like that.

    Actually, after looking it up on wikipedia it seems it could have been from an episode of Supernatural.

    Rick Astley is also a big fan of Camel. In fact Camel was the first band he saw apparently.

    It's funny how a guy who used to be famous for a really crappy pop song a couple decades earlier can somehow become more famous for a goofy internet phenomenon 20 years after his original 15 minutes had ended.

    15 minutes? Not really. Maybe to people like you and I who don't follow pop music very carefully. He was actually a bit bigger in the UK than he was in the US though. He actually had two number one songs in the US though and a few others that made the top 20.

    Hocus Pocus was used in the short lived NBC series, My Name is Earl. As background music for a humorous chase scene.

    On last night's Colbert, Stephen was making light of a witness who answered "yes" to every question. He asked a series of follow-up questions, including: "Who's your favorite 70s prog rock band?" "Yes."

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.
