  1. Anyone know where I can download a copy of "We Are a Place? It's one of the best demos that never made "Lights" album (which I cannot figure out why).
  2. I was on eBay and saw several copies of Arrows listed as a 2 cd set. Was there a different release in Europe as a 2 cd set? Are there additional unreleased material on these as no track listings were available on any of the posts or are these listings just erroneous? On all of them the 2 cd sets were listed at twice the price as their single cd counterparts.
  3. Sorry Riley I didn't mean to disappoint. I just happened to pick up Interpol's 10th Anniversary release of "Turn on the Bright Lights" and I thought it would have been really cool if Good had done something similar. Lacking that I thought, I'd probe around and see what I could find from fellow fans. The "Live at the Metropolis" show that is available on Youtube has great sound and is the only high quality bootleg I have found so far. Additionally, does anyone know if Good ever played "Double Life" live? I love the big drum sound on that song. However, I have heard that was his least favorite song on the album??
  4. Thank you. I have watched both of these. Good stuff. hoping to piece together some collections of live performances. Found two so far: A bootleg on Youtube at the Metropolis and a bootleg of a show in Hamilton. Thank you for the additional info! That's what I am looking for, Hopefully I can track down DLs of those demos. I occasionally post on Matt's Facebook that I wish he would follow Fugazi's idea and make available cheap downloads of all the recorded live performances that may have been made over the years. Maybe donate the proceeds to a charity of his choice. The Fugazi live project is very cool and I think there are over 800 live performances that have been recorded and several hundred are currently available to DL.
  5. All right, am I in the majority being disappointed about Season 2? It seems the show has become a soap opera set in a newsroom. The issues portrayed have been so marginalized that the impact that once seemed to make this the new "Boston Legal" of dramatized social/political issues has devolved into another melodrama of lonely overworked professionals whose personal dramas are not that interesting. Will Mcavoy is still an intriguing character and his enduring love of Mackenzie makes for an interesting subplot; however unoriginal it may be. Charlie (Sam Waterston's) character is by far the most interesting and well developed aside from Will. If this show does not get back to addressing the political issues with the same poignancy of Season 1 and in a hurry then I will have to turn the channel.
  6. With the ten year anniversary of "Avalanche" (call me nostalgic), I am trying to piece together any downloads, demos, live recordings, bootlegs, etc. as that still remains my favorite Matthew Good album. Any titles of the aforementioned media that are or once were available would be greatly appreciated. Any links to video from that tour would also be greatly appreciated. I wish Good had put together a 10 year anniversary edition of Avalanche with DVD, demos, etc. like Interpol did for "Turn on the Bright Lights." So much for wishing...
  7. Michael Jackson Who's creepier, Michael Jackson or Ed Gein?
  8. CNN--I love the 40 something that narrates this time of night--she's hot.
  9. Approximately two cords of wood in its lifetime depending on the woodchuck ratio to log-size ratio. The bigger the tree, the smaller the amount of wood it is able to split and pile. Remember woodchucks do not rely on power tools. Ever eaten a woodchuck? (mmm tasty--like rabbit but a bit greasier and more gamey).
  10. Greek Salad--mmm--tasty.
  11. Picard was the best! No debate here. Greatest horror movie ever?
  12. Anyone see tonight's "Daily Show?" Jon Sterwart and crew brilliantly handed Bill O'Reilly his ass. A clip of O'Reilly was aired interviewing Senator John McCain regarding torture of detainees. O'Reilly actually started lecturing the senator about torture! I sent O'Reilly an email. I doubt he'll put it on the air but that would make my millenium.
  13. I can no longer edit my answer to miss jellybean. sorry. But the beer issue trumps all others. Said subject is sacred ground. But I will stay within the rules unless the aforementioned is brought up. As for the above post, no one is giving you drugs. Is anyone in here physically older than me?
  14. "Fame" rocks. I have that right next to my "Grease" soundtrack.
  15. First, I missed the beer issue which is a moral imperative to address. The finest beer ever produced is Hacker--Pshorr Weisse from Munchen (Munich). I am sorry to regress to a previous post but people must know this! Does anyone here work retail or a similar job?
  16. Tragically Hip--Little Bones ending... Bloc Party--Like Eating Glass
  17. Beer or Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay with Pineapple Orange Juice! Oh! OH! Have you ever been caught masturbating in the closet?
  18. beer--i'm on strict liquid diet this summer. Gotta watch my figure--this gut wasn't built in a week.
  19. People unwilling to fuck plants! Do you like movies with gladiators?
  20. Evolution. Have you ever wanted to mate with a plant to create hybrid who would beat up loggers every time that tried to cut down an old growth forest?
  21. I just started reading Harold Bloom's "The American Religion." One thing he points out that is quintessentially American in religious thought is the belief that individuals have a "personal relationship" with God. In this, I believe is the problem with evangelical fundamentalism in America. I see narcissism at the center of the problem. Christiantiy as practiced in other parts of the world would view this idea of a personal relationship with God as heretical. How Americans practice Christianity is distinct. This personal relationship theology is what causes people to pick and choose what they believe especially among the strongest fundamentalists who "demand a literal interpretation of the Scriptures." Funny, most of those who demand a literal interpretation of Scripture would be stoned before they finsished said demand because the cotton poly blend t-shirt being worn by most of us is strictly forbidden in Leviticus. (I cannot remember the chapter and verse right now but when I get home from my vacation I will try to remember to look it up.) This personal relationship for many is what allows them to pick and choose because the individual and God "have an understanding." In other words, it is all right for the goose but not the gander. This popular belief system is what seems most problematic and leads many to condemn the hypocrisy of religious belief (not religion). As a philosopher I see the problem as one existentialists have popularized and struggled with since Kierkegaard. I see much of Dostoyevsky's philosophy in the problem of religious belief because it gives one a great excuse for not taking responsibility for their lives and doing what they are told to believe to be true. When you mix religion and politics it is as dangerous as intoxication and driving but neither guarantee death they only enhance the risks. Ideology without religion can be just as dangerous. Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Castro, and countless others have supported this analogy. Religion is just the easiest way to get enlistment. Essentially the problem is just that people do not know how to handle the witness of "the other." Our conviction that what we believe is right is right, our willingness to kill to eliminate those challenge our (micro)cosmology, these are the narcisistic motives that religion is used to justify. However, these things become political because religion is used to govern. This desire to govern (i.e. tell others how to live) is the real problem. The fact that some people have more latitude in doing so is the problem. How we as humans resolve that is beyond me and will take quite a bit of evolution to resolve.
  22. Since I am a newbie to the site and probably much older than most of you, I may hold the title on this challenge: Motley Crue--Too Fast...through Theatre Ratt--1st two LPs Poison--Look at What... Cinderella--s/t WASP -- s/t and everything by Matt Good--he sucks ;) Should I keep going because I can make it worse? OK--here is the clincher, I have Heart's s/t lp and a George Michael single. BEAT THAT! If someone wants to "one up me" Go ahead because I have other pooh sticks from the 80s that I have forgotten about and with some digging can really draw up to make you laugh (and me cry in shame). For insober--I loved the Mighty Mighty Bosstones "Let's Face It" It is the perfect drinking disc. However, I might like it becasue I have not been sober since I bought it upon its release?
  23. Bush is up to his tricks again by using the the Senate recess to appoint Bolton UN ambassador. :angry: I guess he needed some "muscle" in there to inform the UN that they better start doing exactly what Bush wants. Why not just send Mike Tyson, he's probably smarter and needs the money not to mentioned he appears much more diplomatic :angry: . I know if Tyson walked into the UN they would be all ears. ;)
  24. I refer back to Dan's repsonse and further it by saying that he is hypocritical by using a blog to bitch about blogs. If he really hates the whole media of blogging so much, then why not go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather? Perhaps, hypocrisy has become so rampant and people have become so vacuous (me included so that I am not seen as self-righteous)that we no longer recognize it?
