  1. i kinda wish I Am Not Safer Than A Bank evolved into something longer, but boy does it have a bite. his vocals seem to be nastier than in the demo. then again, you want to get it right for the album. i wonder what it sounds like live.
  2. wow. top 3- the boy come home devil's in your details i'm a window with... well, the whole damn album right behind those. i can't wait to pop this in my CD player. c'mon July 31...
  3. hey, so long as he avoids the showplace theatre, he can do whatever in Buffalo. i liked Infinity, if he books there again i'm cool with it. that way he can make fun of Salvatore's like he always does. ah yes... the "infidelity target." or perhaps you prefer the "lunchtime hotel."
  4. how about something that explains why Gremlins 2 really wasn't all that bad?
  5. damn, that's quite the list. *sigh* too bad..... ;)

    Top Five...

    top five things to spite me today 5. where's that damn multimeter? 4. text messaging 3. Mac's rainbow wheel of death 2. final cut pro 1. freaking 85 degree weather
  7. i like Bowie's Stage. great example of a live album that's clean, but not too clean. most live albums nowadays are indeed overproduced. last one i bothered with was Skin and Bones... which wasn't bad mixwise. i agree with ToadMan about the acoustic stuff, though i wouldn't mind a live band album- maybe one for the road so he can actually tell everyone he's ditching that format "forever?" i wouldn't be against a live acoustic album or a live DVD. production costs have come down nowadays. a simple one-location live DVD (multi-camera) would probably be comparable in cost to a medium-sized play or recital recording. you could put out something adequate for less than $5k(US). the big snags would be organizational- dealing with the venue and the sound and whatnot.
  8. "deception?" yup. there it is. it's kinda neat finding stupid things in songs when you've got too much time on your hands... the other day i played Led Zeppelin IV backwards and filtered out everything except the high midrange frequencies. there, in the distance, i could hear Jimmy Page reading a recipe for guacamole. it was the worst guacamole ever. ;)
  9. Yeah, so I've been pretty scarce lately, but I figured I'd share this with everyone. It's at least something weird you probably didn't notice in an MGB song you've probably heard a hundred times. Anyway, I was listening to "Look Happy, It's The End of the World" at a very very high volume with my super fancy Sony studio headphones. At the end when the song fades and you hear the bass pulse, I noticed two things. One, the pulse is longer if you listen on good speakers (frequency response, blah blah blah). Two, there's a guy saying something in there. Check it. Cue the song to where there's about 13 seconds left and turn the volume way up. Who is that? What's he saying? Well, I put the song into Audacity and ran it through compression, EQ, and normalization. Here's the result. You can hear someone saying "...can't hear nothing." I'm not sure if that's Matt or who it is. But it's kinda neat. And yeah, I was bored. (and if you can't play the file because it's an OGG vorbis file, get VideoLan or better yet Foobar.)
  10. dude, my (leaked mp3) album changes color too. or maybe that was the brownies. regardless, it's not a bad album at all. i didn't like the leaked songs, but when you play the album start to finish it seems there's a certain continuity about it that brings everything together. it helped me "get" the album when i ditched most notions i had of what Nine Inch Nails had been. so... Year Zero = not amazing, but fairly good.
  11. lazy??? i'll give you three good reasons why you're wrong. firstly... um.... bleh... i'm gonna go get a beer.
  12. got the new Assemblage 23 album (Meta) by mail. it's kinda techno/EBM/dance-ish if anyone's wondering.
  13. yeah... damn college requiring me to do "work." sheesh.
  14. you mean Billy Pilgrim? there will briefly be a violet light and a hum. he will wake up tomorrow, in Dresden. i will wake up tomorrow, and still miss him.
  15. like people have been saying, Pony Boy was on In A Coma. i suppose if you want to get technical, there is also the "leaked" version of Pony Boy from way back when. it's the same song, but basically unmastered and mixed a bit different. the IAC version is compressed to be "louder," (what seems to be) Matt's guitar and Rich's bass are amped up a bit more, Dave's guitar has a bit more overdrive-ish "fuzz," and Holly McNarland's backing vocal is practically non-existent. basically, modern "rock" mastering.
  16. he really needs to join the cast as the hospital's other infectious disease specialist. "HOLY SHIT, bacteria! waste the muthafuckas! i'm Mace Windu, biiiiiitch!"
  17. silly geese! it's not because they think you'll get naughty ideas, it's because the label wanted you to play a game of mad libs with the tracklisting! "born to (verb)" oh oh oh! i know! born to... breakdance! yessss! american record labels rock!
  18. yeah, i was like "hereitcomes hereitcomes hereitcomes...." then the song loops back- "SHIT! Tom Welling, go choke a bitch so i can hear the guitars erupt!"
  19. Tom Morello is supposed to be releasing a solo album (as The Nightwatchman) sometime in the very near future. though this doesn't totally count out Rage staying together for a bit longer. in fact, Rage has NOT yet released a Best Of... perhaps they get pressured into making a track or two for a Best Of- and then tour it?
  20. i'm scared too. WMP instead of itunes or something even better?

    true, that would be a better idea. Hartford has been hurting for a team other than their AHL Wolfpack. there was some recent talk about a franchise somehow popping up around St. Catharines Ontario- there's another candidate city for a team that doesn't feel financially welcome somewhere. of course, any town looking to woo a team in would need a fancy new arena.
  22. i'm a senior going for a B.A. in Media Study. basically it's film/video, or at least that's what i'm most focused on. i want to eventually go into TV, perhaps writing, producing, or directing. heck, news would be fine with me too. i used to be comp sci. i couldn't handle all the coding and null pointer exceptions i was responsible for bringing into this world. but i also blame the department for not putting a "kill java" button on the keyboards.

    The Nhl

    i think for now the league is fine as it is. expanding (again) within the next few years wouldn't be the best idea, though. i think 30 teams is enough. and in a few years if some teams are flailing, i would not be opposed to a contraction- but keep the league at least 20 teams large.
  24. Pony Boy, eh? freaking diesel. i love that song. man, if i heard that or Carmelina at a Sabres game...
  25. it's called "Push" and is from the Euphony tape, also part of the History Teacher "bootleg." Lyrics
