Proglodites

Unread post by Welder » Wed Oct 10, 2018 2:23 pm

I can’t help but notice that someone has inadvertently let a proglodite out of it’s coffin.
This is bad news for all music fans.

This particular proglodite was apparently a swamp dweller back in the aeons of time, approximately carbon dated at early 1970’s.
What I find particularly concerning, is apparently this one is blind. This of course means there must be another in order to make the posts. It could however be conceivable that this one is in fact deaf on the evidence available on this forum, in which case it’s the other that may be blind.
Looking through my ancient book of dealing with grave released pests and public nuisances I have learnt that there are two ways to return such creatures to times past, or failing this, back to their graves.

The most effective way is apparently to grind vinyl into a fine paste and force the proglodite to ingest the compound. Given it’s now 2018 this could prove problematical as vinyl is now no longer produced in the volumes it once was; health and safety issues found that the dust produced by dragging a semi precious stone in grooved sheets of vinyl is carcinogenic.
However, a small footnote mentions that playing music any music may drive the proglodite back to it’s coffin much as sunlight does with vampires. Proglodites don’t apparently like music.

So, in the interest of the contributors to HFS I thought we might at least mention some of the music we play.
As is often the way when dealing with the dead, more modern approaches have superseded some of the old. Take for example the driving of a stake through a vampires heart; these days a small nuclear device is equally effective. With the case of a troglodyte more modern music and differing genres work in a similar fashion.

So, those of you with staunch dispositions and a modicum of musical taste might like to offer some selected tracks to help rid the forum of the pest.
Here a few to designed to irritate a troglodite. They apparently work because the troglodite doesn’t immediately recognise the tracks as music and frantically searches it’s memory to see if it can dredge up some irrelevant information on who may, or may not, have been involved in its production. Due to the troglodites compulsion to appear knowledgable about music there is a chance that the deaf one at least may look for the track on the internet and it only take a few moments of listening to drive the troglodite apoplectic and later to death.

Good post!

By the way, proggers - not just metalhead retards - like the vampire theme. (Heck , a krautrock band is Nosferatu.) I even got an old classical record Vampire opera that no one heard of.

Pffft vampire pictures, is that the best you can come up with?
Given your self professed knowledge of progism I was kind of hoping for something a bit more imaginative, but I suppose you’re a bit buggered with the prog in this respect.
Time to throw a bit of holy water at the problem….

I seem to have run out of holy water. I must have used it up on the last proglodite I sent back to its grave along with it’s overly long, untalented, introspective, guitar solos.
Never mind I’ve got some Ben Harper; probably more effective with much more god in him.
Ben Harper, Faded ,from The Will To Live…...something proglodites will never understand.
There’s a message in there.

Roy Harper worked with both Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

His album 'Bullinamingvase' is rather proggy.
