Hey thanks, Julio! I did that in good old Visio. Just wanted it to stand out - and equally feature Relaxed Machinery and DataObscura. The timing was actually coincidental -but once I saw it was APK and Robert Davies - I wanted to promote both premieres and try to join them together. In fact - Robert (and hopefully APK) is joining us in the chat tonight!
Note - both Chris and Robert plan to be in chat - which will be on the front page of http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com - during the show. We've also had Rusty from SomaFM join us for chat - really a fun time.
If you can tune in to DroneZone to hear the new albums - that'd be great - even better - join us for chat!
I think it's sad when people leave. Forrest is a good egg. I do find myself deterred from posting here very much - I almost always get a negative sounding post from one person in reply and it drives me nuts. More than once I've been going to post and then decided... nah - I'll get jumped on as soon as I post.
I'm not a sports fan in general... I don't follow any sports until it gets to that 'holy cow - it's an artform' level of the olympics, or the stanley cup, or world cup. ...and then it's just the highlights now and then.
I've enjoyed the world cup highlights a lot. Tim Howard was a monster - well an octopus at least. Germany yesterday vs. whoever that team was... I think they snuck in and wore Brazil's jerseys. Wow.
I do find football to be one heck of a sport - when it's exciting - it's exciting! And how the heck do the athletes run up and down the field non stop for literally ever...? Baseball you get a nice rest after every pitch. Football (american) - the game itself is what...5 minutes total? but takes 14 hours to play.
Anyway... hats off to the World Cup - some amazing, and very artful, athletes.
Hey - I don't often cross post over here - but I know a lot of Igneous Flame fans around... head over to http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com/ today - and click "THE DARKROOM" image at top... that will open a gallery of a ton of photos Pete has posted for us over at rM.
I think you'll enjoy them - you don't have to be a member to see them.
I got a chance to listen to this in depth and it is freaking good. It's jazz - but still with an ambient / atmospheric feel to it - but primarily jazz. I recommend giving it a listen on bandcamp streaming and see if you like it. I love live playing - and this is some really good live playing.
