Re: Favorite bands of the 90s

Ah, the music of my youth. Some of these bands originated before the 90's, and some are still active today, but they all were active in the decade.

  • U2
  • Barenaked Ladies
  • Third Eye Blind
  • Dream Theater
  • Pixies
  • Pearl Jam

Re: The best realised universe

The Xanth series by Piers Anthony has a fantastic universe. Variations between locales, characters, cultures... it's got it all.

Re: House Republicans move to eliminate income tax, IRS

The only mistake I can see is your assumption that politics is logical. Other than that, it's perfect.

Re: Confessions Thread - Large Hadron Confider

Confession: I'm waiting for college to reset my life. I'm going to go somewhere far away, where no one knows me or my past, and see what I can make of it. Maybe make something of my life.

Re: Rattle my worldview - Has a book ever changed your life?

The Gospel According to Larry by Janet Tashjian. When I read it back in sixth grade, I decided to simplify my life. So, because of this book, I'm a minimalist (and a Buddhist, but that's indirect.)

"When the Music's Over" - The Doors

When Jim Morrison screams "Now!" and the band kicks in behind him, I always get chills. Every single time.

If your school lets you run exe files, try Ultrasurf. It should get you through the blocker.

The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever

I just read this series of books. My mom was a big fan back in the day, and she showed them to me. Being the reading savant that I am, I read them in a day, and have been thinking about them since. My verdict: They're alright. Thomas Covenant is a compelling character, and flawed enough that he is a...

Everything I've read says that 3 is fantastic live, and I agree from personal experience. They're worth a listen, at the least.

Re: Modern "Prog-Rock"?

Maybe 3? They're definitely proggish, and they opened for Dream Theater on their latest tour. Not as heavy though, so you may like them.

King Crimson is brilliant, though. You probably won't find their equal.

Re: An iPhone complaint

If you cancel the correction enough times, it should learn. Or, add "shit" to your contacts. It'll no longer be auto-corrected.

Re: The Xkcd Superelite Marching Band/Drum Corps

I played trumpet for two years in a pretty excellent band. We were Division 2A (Yeah, small) State Champs my first year, and second my second. Also, we finished 7th both years at the regional finals.

I had plenty of fun.

Re: Post-Rock

If you haven't listened to King Crimson before, you should.

Check out "In The Court of the Crimson King" first, it's the band's first album and one of their best.

Also, "Discipline" is fantastic.
