Re: Predict your future using your music

Dirty Projectors - Winter Is Here Tyrannosaurus Rex - Romany Soup Brian Wilson - Child Is The Father Of Man :mrgreen: That worked out pretty great. Come chilly winter, I shall warm my insides with a steaming bowl of romany soup, before discovering that (by virtue of a pretty wicked paradox of space-...

Re: Cool games on the interweb

(And that has already been posted. Maybe someone should make a list of games that have been posted so that this doesn't happen. Maybe I will be someone eventually.) Oh, I knew it had already been posted. I just figured that if it took anyone's fancy to try and beat my pansy-ass score it'd be better...

I'm embarrassingly bad at that avalanche game (http://www.thegamehomepage.com/play/avalanche/~ I've never got above 350.

Re: I am sad. Watchmen

Watchmen is the only comic I've ever loved, and I am positive that the film will not measure up. More than any other I know of, the story is just perfectly suited for one format: the comic book. Alan Moore event went out and said that Watchmen "was designed to show off the things that comics c...

Re: Best Concert You've Been To

Damn ~ every cell in my body yearns to go to a Flaming Lips concert. It's kind of my Mecca. Check my friggin' avatar if you don't believe me. :D The best concert I've ever been to, hands down, was Joanna Newsom at the Palais here in Melbourne. It was stunning. 20 minute-long songs, note- and inflect...

Re: What do you listen to when you study?

In year 12 last year I tried something interesting: I allocated a very different type of music to each of my different subjects, and tried to mind-meld them together, so that (in preparation of the period where I might need to study a specific subject, so all I'd need to do is play a particular song...

Re: Bass Necessary?

Dudes - the Velvet Underground. End Of Discussion. So the moral of the story, meinen kinder, is that you can have a kickin rock 'n roll band without a bassist, but only if you have a crazy-magnificent avant-classical cellist to fill in the sound-hole with psychedelic drones. (...That said, when a ba...

Re: Pausing music

I don't wait 'til the bar line to pause things - I always fade them out slowly. When I'm really into a song, I can't stand for it to be paused. I'm actually a little crazy about this. Once, in a friend's attic, a bunch of us were just relaxing and talking, but I was just sitting in a recliner, quiet...

Re: Bands in the same vein as Neutral Milk Hotel/Beirut?

Well, if they resemble the Olivia Tremor Control in any way, of whose Black Foliage I'm a fan for life, I'm in! You won't be disappointed. The Circulatory System album is like Black Foliage Animation Music filtered through a thin sheet of hazy orange sunshine. If you're already into Olivia Tremor C...

Re: Songs by Popular Artists That No One's Heard Of (The Songs)

The Beatles - And Your Bird Can Sing Dude, that song kills ! Along with Tomorrow Never Knows and For No One, my favourite on Revolver. Actually, I'd like to submit For No One as - while being by the biggest band of all time, and one of the most celebrated records of all time - a song that no one re...

I've lurked on and off around this board for a while, but this is the first topic I've ever thought, "Hey! I'm in a particular position to help this guy!" and so I just now registered. If it's Neutral Milk Hotel's sound you're after, I'd immediately suggest you hook up with the Canadian ba...
