Lileks slaps me in my prog-rock 

I�m standing in the middle of the used CD store the other day. The clerk is playing �Yes,� a band whose name I always preferred to answer in the negative. �Roundabout� comes on. Haven�t heard this one in years, actually. Jon Anderson sings the famous line: �In around the lake / Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there.� As opposed to what? Doing the fargin' Macarena? Standing there is pretty much the job description for mountains.
