An 8-min song?  But then again:  IT’S OUTLAW PETE!

    Thanks for the post! That was a great song to have on in the background while I was getting ready to teach.

    Also, what led you to start putting up untitled posts? Do you plan to give titles to any of your future posts? I’m just curious- it doesn’t seem to be a problem.

    Wonderful: I’m glad you enjoyed “OUTLAW PETE.” He’s always been such a neglected figure; it’s gratifying to see a musician finally play him suitable homage. And I love the piece’s sweeping, anthemic quality.

    I guess it just seems like too much effort to compose a heading every single time. It’s tough to come up with premium title material. But I suppose I can always go back and add titles. On the other hand, the stark minimalism is interesting in itself. Wait. I meant, “fascinating.” It challenges the reader to fill that void with something from their own imagination … instead of relying upon a “conceptual crutch.”

    Another thing I like about the song is its suggestion of “Paste Pot Pete.”

    I agree that the lack of a title is interesting. It gives the Dashboard a mysterious quality, since the information there refers to untitled posts by number.

    If it’s untitled I know it’s LeFalcon’s post. It’s a signature, and I think it adds personality. But if we all left our posts untitled, I think the blog would “conceptually crutched” as well.

    The much-celebrated “Triple-P.” I’m surprised he didn’t turn up in “Watchmen.” He would’ve supplied a good counterpoint to the blue bald guy.

    Yes, I like it. I wouldn’t want LeF to feel that he had to leave his posts untitled, but it gives the blog a certain texture to have an author who does that regularly.

    You’re really making me want to see that movie. Or at least write crude doggerel about the sexual preferences of the bald blue guy. Six of one, etc.
