Everything and Nothing / Re: Favorite movies
« on: November 12, 2009, 01:28:03 PM »
I don't usually do best lists as I don't see films as sport. However I would probably go with Citizen Kane, probably because I've seen it on so many best of lists, and its also a great film. I wouldn't argue too long with your choice, its also a great film.

Personal favorite is My Dinner with Andre, with a close second being 2001.

I had to google your "James Cameron's Aquaman" reference BTW.  I'd like to watch Entourage at some point but I've never seen it.

I read an interview with James Cameron in the LA Times right after the "Aquaman" episodes were shown. He said that at one point he could have actually gotten Aquaman made, that's how serious that show is taken in the industry.

Disappointments for me this decade have been Scorsese's focus on less complex entertainments, Spielberg in general, and James Cameron's lack of activity.

Well I thought Aquaman was the best thing Cameron ever did.  ;D

I agree with you to a degree, but I guess I was making more of a comment on their top ten then on the decade. I  think I have seen six or seven of those listed, and not one of them made me think it was one of the best of the year, let alone of the decade.

Then you passed the sanity test as only sane people lose their minds taking synaesthesia tests.  ;D  :D

I would say based upon their top ten list this decade pretty much sucked for films. I've seen most of the films they list and enjoyed most of them, but I would have to say I can't think of any other decade were any of those films would make the top 50.

Everything and Nothing / Re: VISTA

Well, soon I will transform my PC to Pure APPLE also, i will just paint the computer white and put on the APPLE logo :)

While you are at it why don't you buy a Volkswagen, paint it white, and then put a Mercedes logo on it, same thing I would think. That way you can also prove your superiority to the auto aficionados as well.  ;D

As for Vista, my first run in with it was while temping for a game developer, it seemed to me at the time that a lot of the so called upgrades were done just because they could do it and actually would slow down your work flow if you were familiar with XP at all. I've also known a few people who bought new PCs with Vista and then tried to hook up their printers, scanners, and other add-on hardware devices that they had used with their older XP computers, but found they no longer worked because no drivers had been developed. Of course this has changed but it was a common complaint I heard from early adaptors. On the  plus side, now that I do mostly a/v work here at the school, I have found that laptops with Vista are more friendly when dealing with projectors then computers running XP.

Loren, how are you going to dance when you're kneeling on the ground?

I guess that video ended before I started break dancing.  ;D

Actually the only thing I was doing during that video was trying to figure out how I was going to see the computer screen when the sun was shining directly on it. I kept moving it forward but the sun kept moving with it. Finally I shifted it to the floor. Here's some photos a friend of mine took during the show:

Maybe Jade by Ian Boddy? Its been a while since I've heard it (came out in the late 1980s) and I am not sure if its still in print. Check his website for details.

Thank you Tom for filling us in on this sad day. My Sincerest condolences to you and Jim's family. I only spoke with Jim a couple times on the phone and had a few email conversations, most of my connection with him was through this website were we share a love of this music. Jim was very passionate, he was a pillar of this community and a great supporter to all of us in whatever we were doing. He will be greatly missed by many many people.

I recently picked this up via steveroach.com's site.  I've been able to give it a really good listen now and I must say I think it's your finest work.  Excellent work Forrest! ~ Jesse

I'll have to second what Jesse said about it being your finest work Forrest. I think I've gotten all of your CDs (and an LP too) over the years, and I think its just a great CD, am really enjoying it. Well done.  :)

OMG, that was hilarious!  ;D

Chris Farley would have nothin' on that guy.

I thought the same thing- looks like Chris Farley doing a character!

Yeah but to me he sounds more like Sam Kinison.  :D

I say we get M. Griffin, Numina, Loren Nerell, and Forrest Fang to do a 4-man ambient masterpiece album and faux reunion tour and then do an in-store... with hopefully bringing in fans with similar results!

I'm game, but instead of a bunch of middle aged guys in black t-shirts can we have a few women instead?  ;D

Darn! I'd been looking forward to attending.   :(

You can come, just wear a white t-shirt and bring three women with you.  ;D

I am curious to see how quickly the 500 boxes sell out.

You won't have to wait long, Steve told me this morning he is already almost sold out.

Hypnos News and Announcements / Re: Upcoming Hypnos releases?

And I disagree about digipaks being durable, at least in my experience.  With digipaks, the printed material is right there on the surface, subject to scuffing, denting, dog-eared edges, water damage, and fingerprint oils, every time you handle the CD package.

I think they are as durable as LP jackets were, jewel cases also show simliar age problems (scratches, cracks, etc.) but their advantage is they are easily replaced. I can understand the need to save money, I just think the paper sleeve is going to cause more issues down the road then it solves. It will provide no real protection to the CD, unlike something that is thicker like card stock.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it appears to me you are trading a tray card and jewel case for just a paper sleeve, which of course over time will become torn and will probably loose its contents. Also, how will you be printing the booklets, with an ink jet printer? Something better one hopes. I'm with Forest, I would prefer something more interesting and will last longer. I've had no issues with Digipaks or cardboard sleeves over time, paper or plastic sleeves are another story, they just don't last.
