Define "reasonable".   ;D

I've got Trances/Drones, the 1994 2cd version on Extreme, XLTD001.  Case good, cd's and booklet excellent.  Even has a pic of Robert with a full head of hair.   ;)

The entire Magma catalog is one big concept album.



Everything and Nothing / Re: Silly Question on disagreeing vs. attacking
« on: December 13, 2010, 09:21:25 AM »
Why, that's the stupidest thing I've ever...  er... ;D

Good question, one that probably has no answer.  Two rational human beings can have diametrically opposed viewpoints, and both be right from their own perspectives.  That seems self-evident to me.  But some people don't get this, or don't want to get it.  I find myself just avoiding these types of people.  Unfortunately, on the interwebz, you can't avoid them easily. 

Some forums I frequent have an "ignore poster" feature - it sure is handy.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Holiday Movies - your favorites and why

It has nothing to do with Christmas, but ten years ago, my brother brought Fantastic Planet to our family Xmas party; it's now become a tradition.  Since I'm not spending the holiday with the family, I'll just Netflix it instead.  (oh, and on Thanksgiving a few years ago, we watched "Alive".  Lots of jokes during dinner that year...)

Other than that, I don't watch many holiday movies - seen 'em all too many times.

Right on, Bill!  Happy Thanksgiving to you (and the rest of you folks) as well. 

I'm planning on a relaxing day of skiing with the wife, then an evening in front of the fire with some wine, some salmon, and some tunes.  Being 1200 miles from our families is a mixed blessing, but overall, I'm thankful that I get to spend a day with my wife with no other distractions.

Peace, all!

I clicked, and didn't see you naked.

You have to believe...


I hang out at several boards (this is the only music-related one), and participation at all of them seems to ebb and flow over time.  The only difference I see between the more active ones and this one is that it's relatively polite here.  I like that.

There's only so much one can say about our favorite style of music before it gets redundant.  Other than specific new releases, just about any topic or observation can be found to already exist if one uses the search function.  Truly original topics get a flurry of activity, then fade out, which suggests to me that the actual audience of unique visitors is small.  I wonder if the total number of hits you're seeing, Mike, doesn't include a large percentage of bots?  Any way to know?

Oh, and nudity, more nudity.  Can't go wrong with more nudity. 

 ;D ::)

Nudity.  Excessive, gratuitous, unnecessary nudity.


Ran into Styx in the Spokane airport.   :o

Those are some strange looking guys - like they've been embalmed or something.   :-\

Another category - most you ever got when selling an album.  I sold Muslimgauze's "Islamaphobia" 2xCD for $350.00 on eBay; it was re-released by Soleilmoon a couple months later, for $20.   ;D

Least?  Hard to say...  I have a ton of crap I got for free.   ;D

Most?  Again, hard to say...  but I know I spent $100 on the "Beyond Logic, Beyond Belief" LP by Nocturnal Emissions when it came out in the early 90's.  I had no money then, so I'm not sure what the hell I was thinking...   ::)

Mojo Nixon in First Avenue in the early 90's.  He was at the urinal next to me, and would NOT stop talking while we peed.  If he wasn't so funny, it would have been creepy...

I found MySpace late, after it was already a complete shitshow, so I never bothered to join. 

Some kid started a fan page for SunDummy on Facebook; I wasn't going to bother, but since he already created one, I asked to be made an admin.  A few people have contacted me because of it, but on the whole, I think it's a waste of time unless you're actively promoting stuff.  For example, Grapes of Wrath have been promoting reunion shows via their Facebook page; if I wasn't a fan, I'd never know about these shows; so it does have some value, if used correctly.

Been on a Ride kick lately - "Carnival of Light" and "Tarantula", two classics.  And my ambient-loving side has been really digging Robert Rich's "Seven Veils", Mo Boma's "Myths of the Near Future" volumes 1 through 3, and Nurse with Wound's "Soliloquy for Lilith".


 ;D ;D

Facebook's advantages are that you can't edit the background or the layout very much, and you can't use GIF images.  It keeps things clean and orderly.  

I agree with Mike; MySpace is physically painful to look at.

Sorry, slight thread drift...  but this whole discussion reminds me of this:

I dress like him, sure...  but my hair is different.   ;D

By the way I'd start to question my identity if enough people I didn't know started approaching me.  Maybe a recent concussion?  Amnesia?  Did you ever get that just for a second  during those strange bar conversations...?

Funny you mention that - last Saturday it happened to me again, twice!  

At the bottom of my local ski hill, a guy commented on how fast I was going, and asked if I was still planning to get lunch at 1pm, as we discussed.  I said "yes", and he smiled and skied away.  Funny thing is, I had just arrived, and hadn't even taken a run yet.  I can see how he could have mistaken me for someone else in similar attire, but a conversation about lunch?   ???

Then, at the local Safeway, a guy walked past me in the parking lot, gave me a huge smile, and said "Hi Scott, good to see you again!" as he waved and kept walking.  I have no idea who he was (or who "Scott" was, for that matter...)   ???

Maybe I've got a split personality - I wonder what my other self is up to?  I guess I'll really worry if the police show up at my door...

This is getting creepy...

I'm stuck in St. Paul on business.  Yesterday I went to a bar for a burger and a beer.  The place was deserted; as soon as I walked in, the bartender said, "Hey!  How did it go?" 

I gave her a quizzical look, and she said, "The fundraiser last week!  How much did you get?"

I told her I was 1200 miles away last week, and that I didn't know what she was talking about.

She was adamant that I had been in her bar last week, and was selling tickets for some school fundraiser for my kids (btw, I don't have kids).  I had to convince her it wasn't me; she was certain.   ???

Maybe some evil scientist is releasing multiple clones of me on an unsuspecting world?   :P
