"TbS 2 development notes"
 
   I thought it could be fun to establish a thread for various random, peripheral, generally non-spoilery musings I might want to share with the class during the development of Goodbye and Hello, as Always. Here's the first one:

"The Toph Beifong Experience" would be a good name for a band. Presumably a loud one without much emphasis on big stage visuals.

The combined result of replies 1 & 2 would be a band which almost completely
self-destructs on stage every few shows...

Some say the Toph Beifong Experience did their best shows during the year Toph spent undead for tax purposes.

Is that the same year she "persuaded" Disaster Area into opening for them...?

"I swear, if one more knuckleheaded rock journo describes me as the band's 'visionary', I'm gonna track him down and bury his house."

"Actually, this article makes the point that the Toph Beifong Experience has two visionaries."

If you want to check something out in that neighborhood, you should have a look at Boris. A Japanese three-piece (originally four-piece) that flirts with the outer fringes of doom, drone and psychedelia. Even their quiet music is played at ear-splitting volume, involving feedback textures and layers of guitar and other sounds.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gop_ugTatAI (This video starts out pitch-black, but the lights do eventually come up.)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAr5VXXOGSQ (Official video for the two lead singles for the two albums they released simultaneously in 2011, "Hope" and "Riot Sugar." They cut back and forth between the two songs because they feel like it.)

   "Goodbye and Hello, as always" is the last line of Corwin (the Prince of Amber, not the God) at the end of "The Courts of Chaos," the last volume of the Corwin Chronicles, yes. For some people who don't appreciate how awesome the Merlin books are, it's the last line in the Chronicles of Amber, period.

It's a pretty good exit line.

And at the end of the Merlin books, Corwin says "Goodbye and hello," which is the last _spoken_ line in the novels.
