 Extremely Pink Floydish year

Many Pink Floyd fans were faced with mixed feelings when two Roger Waters singles Too Kill the Child / Leaving Beirut were release for digital download just before the US presidential election. IMHO Leaving Beirut lyrics are awesome, the very high level you expect from Waters, but Too Kill the Child is too bound a certain period in history, George Bush namely, but that's not new for Waters, he didn't have any problem calling Margaret Thatcher (Maggie) either. Anyway, the singles were filling the whole for a few months last year.

I was finishing a Pink Floyd compilation work, so I checked again a couple weeks ago, just to find out the long-promised opera Ça Ira is ready to release. To be in stores on September 27. What a perfect gift to be released on my birthday! But I do not need more than one copy anyway. Got to set up a mechanism to help my friends choose items from my wish list exclusively!

That alone could have been enough Floydian news for the year of 2005, but if you have been hoping deep in there that they reunite, here we go!

As everybody knows by now (I'm not a news site, sorry), Live 8 is around the corner. Another Live Aid you may call it. But hey, the London show is featuring Roger Waters performing with the rest of Pink Floyd for the first time in 25 years! The Wall has been by all means the last work of them as a band. Lo and behold, who's organizing the whole Live 8 thing? Nobody other than Bob Geldof, adult Pink in Pink Floyd The Wall movie by Alan Parker. Coincidence, eh?

Beatles? Only Paul McCartney... sigh

PF is not only Rogers but you know that already right?

"Ping pang sheepman, hahah sharade you are.."
Of course not! Did I sound like that? When I said Pink Floyd is performing in London, that's what I really mean, DG, NM, RR, which are PF, with RW.

I still consider Waters news interesting news for PF fans.
