Re: 1196: "Subways"

Calling our wretched "light rail system" here in Atlanta a "subway" gives the impression that is better than it actually is. MARTA should not be included on any "subway map."

Re: 1075: "Warning"

I occasionally get this feeling when I'm driving. "Wow, here I am with 3500 lbs. of potential catastrophe." To get an idea of how much we take these things for granted, imagine someone texting with a .357 in his hand. Yeah. Less dangerous. .357? Is that a police pistol? The .357 is not ne...

Re: "Mission To Culture" Discussion

If you don't know Kraftwerk, you clearly do need "a website" to school you in the genre on which you are supposedly an expert. I know who Kraftwerk is, and I know that they are big influence to at least Orbital. I've just never gone out of my way to listen to any of their work. I have hea...

Re: "Mission To Culture" Discussion

Some people have kind of a warped idea of what techno is... Techno is just one genre of electronic music. Nothing posted in this thread would be considered techno. I waste far too much time explaining to people that I'm listening to trance (NOT TECHNO). It's a huge pet peeve of mine when people gro...
