I don't understand that uncanny valley thing, but I suck at understanding stuff.
Anyway, my relation to music is so intimate that I never cared if I couldn't share it with anyone.

The uncanny valley is a hypothesis in the field of human aesthetics which holds that when human features look and move almost, but not exactly, like natural human beings, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. Examples can be found in the fields of robotics,3D computer animation, and in medical fields such as burn reconstruction, infectious diseases, neurological conditions, and plastic surgery. The "valley" refers to the dip in a graph of the comfort level of humans as subjects move toward a healthy, natural human likeness described in a function of a subject's aesthetic acceptability.
You like yes, king crimson, and pink floyd ( I imagine), so we are like brothers,... but you don't care for tool, and so now our closeness in musical taste seems like a great schism, if you well, in light of that fact.

I am always around the forums, and love graphics.
Love the band. Saw them live in 2006, front row of the pit crowd. (the pit was kind of scary)
The last time I saw tool, the pit was seated, as the night before someone was trampled to death at their show in Calgary. I paid 60$ for floor seats and ended up in folding chairs zapstrapped together. I pledged then and there to smuggle in some wire cutters next time just in case.
