I hope to see Kraftwerk again in LA. Started to watch the Grammy's. . . .but it was painful. So I turned it off and started to listen to some TD and Roach, etc. to calm me down. I wanted to see Metallica so after the show was over I turn to youtube and found the Metallica spot. Man was it weird seeing the piano guy (I know he's famous or something). But it did not go well with Metallica's "One". Come on man. . . .what the hell were you thinking? I don't get todays music. It's not cool to collaborate artist. Imagine Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk collaborating together? FAIL. I can't stand when TD adds vocals to their sounds. FAIL again.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Help me find good cider

I enjoy a good hard cider, but it seems the recent boom in popularity of cider has resulted in more "candy" ciders -- light and very sweet, with more in common with a Zima or a Bartles & James wine cooler than the dark, dry cider I enjoy.

Some of the craft breweries are offering cider now, but I'm leery of proceeding without recommendations. I don't want to spend $7 on a bottle of cider only to find it's sweet "alco-pop..."

Any recommendations?

You try any of Julian's Cider?

I'm not into cider or sour beers. I prefer IPA's and DIPA's, Belgian's and Stouts. I also homebrew.

Everything and Nothing / Re: 2013 Favorite Albums("normal" music)
« on: December 31, 2013, 12:21:04 PM »
I have just realised that the only "normal" album I purchased that was released in 2013 was;

Black Sabbath 13 , which is very good indeed.

My listening has been increasingly dominated by electronic and especially ambient in the past 2/3 years which is quite surprising as I am a massive Prog and Rock fan.

So the above album is my list  ;) for this topic.

Not to quote you thirdsystem but I really enjoyed Black Sabbath's comeback album 13. Powerful. I will be going to the Hollywood Bowl in April to try and take OZZy's vocals. Not sure how he's going to do live.

Tangerine Dream - Kafza the Castle

I have every SR album plus a few extras. I guess you could call me a Roach fan. Most I can sit back with a beer or two and enjoy no matter which album I play. I especially love to head out to the Mojave desert for the night and have a campfire with some atmospheric/drone sounds. I also have every album/cd from Tangerine Dream. But I still like the Dream from the 70's to mid 80's the best. For Steve roach I prefer his earlier sounds but I still dig his newer style. All depends on the mood and beer I'm drinking.

 8)  right on. . . .  :)

 :)  Any thoughts on what each show Steve will be presenting? I already purchased tickets for the Saturday 9pm show. But the first show at 7pm with dinner inbetween looks to be very short. Maybe 1 hour? But then there is a special VIP artist reception after the 9pm show. Knowing Steve the 9pm show could go on till midnight or beyond. Or it could be an hour or two. Friday nights 730pm is wide open. No dinner or VIP artist reception after the show. I am also thinking of going Friday night. All I know is this event is not to be missed. I'm sure each show will be different.  ;)

I was there for this concert. Brought my oldest son. His first Roach gig. My second of three times seeing Steve perform in Tucson.

Received and listened to already 3 times. Just as I remembered it live on the drone zone.
Already secured tickets to the Sat 9pm show.

 ???  WTF! No segment on what Edgar Froese or Tangerine Dream had in the role of ambient/electronic atmospheric music. And he's from the UK? The UK is what put Tangerine Dream on the map back in the late 60's. Sure they started in West Berlin, but it was the UK fans and bbc radio that really launch the band. And Edgar/TD is still putting out albums and touring. TD is still huge in the UK and the rest of Europe. Not so much here in America these days. But still take note Mark. Even if you don't care for TD these days they had a major role in the 60's and 70's. I've briefly started watching the youtube lecture. . . . .boring. But I will finish or get through it.

I haven't listened or watched the lecture yet. Maybe I should after listening to Steve Roach's Live Transmission album I just got. Or not.

Ordered and awaiting the arrival of Steve's newest double cd release Live Transmissions.
Looking forward to the next "live" Immersion gig at LA's Vortex Dome venue on Oct 25 (one show) and Oct 26 (two shows). Feeling bad about missing out on the Ambicon event and his last Immersion gig in Tucson a few years back I will def be at the Saturdays shows. Yes both shows.

Steve Roach's music is described as Pink Floyd on steroids! IMO

 :) Good to be able to watch AMBIcon live via Livestream. At work. On OT. I was planning on flying up to SanFran to spend the weekend in the San Rafeal area and check out Robert Rich and Steve Roach's sets. But OT at LAX is hard to pass up. So now I get to watch live and work OT. Yes, its not the same as being there but. . . .hey. . . .what the hell. I was actually very impressed with Michael Stearns set last night. I stayed up past my bed time to finally see M Stearns perform live. This was his first time performing live in 10 years. Always loved his music. Can't wait to get home and set up my apple tv to watch the master himself. . . . .Steve Roach. With a couple of good IPA  beers to drink along side. If I couldn't be there live I rather be out in the Mojave Desert with my iPad and speakers camping. Or at home on the big screen. Cheers to HOS. Thanks Steven Hill.

Will individual tickets be available day of show at the venue? As long as they haven't sold out?

So only northern California residents will be able to attend the individual concerts? SoCal and out of state are not allowed? I would like to attend two or all 4 concerts. So do I have to buy for the whole weekend event? $350-370 for non NorCal residents? It's a bit pricey just to see two or four shows. Don't you think?

I'm working a double shift @ LAX right now. In the middle of my 16 hour day/night now. Yippee!! All at holiday pay!! Listening to some Steve Roach, Tangerine Dream, Between Interval, etc. Watching the Lakers win. And some work in-between. Cheers all. Merry Christmas from beautiful LAX.

Yes you can, because there are too many.  ;)

Not in my album library. Never have enough of Steve Roach. Never get tired of his ever changing sounds. Different sounds for different situations. Like my TD library, I have every Roach album. I have two iPods. One for Rock and one for EM/ambient. And every Roach & TD album is loaded into it. I have certain Roach albums for drinking beer or camping out in the desert, camping in the mountains or road trips in the car. Even just chilling out at home.
