Other Ambient (and related) Music / Slowdive reunion and tour 2014
« on: August 24, 2014, 10:45:12 PM »
Been waiting 20 years for this and sadly found out over a month too late.  Their show in San Francisco on November 7  has already sold out.  Geez, I hope some greedy scalpers will take my big bucks, if I can find one by then.  There's some video footage on YouTube of the reunited group and while they don't sound quite as visceral as I remember when  they were all around 24 (back in '94 opening for Catherine Wheel), they sound pretty good.  Hope they make some new music.

I can't remember seeing any discussions or comments after the last couple Hypnos CDs were released.  This would be Antonio Testa and Subradial.  Just wondering why ?.......

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Any Genesis fans?
« on: August 06, 2014, 11:10:38 PM »
Any opinions on Gabriel vs Post Gabriel, favorite releases, etc?  I just got Seconds Out, excellent live album where Steve Hackett was still in the band.  How about those 2008 reissues which many fans condemned for remixing the music, however slightly?

Be honest now....  ;)

I bought this '94 Staalplaat CD recently.  The track times are totally different than what's shown on the back cover, plus there are 12 tracks but the label indicates 10.  Really don't understand how a label could f*** up this bad and put the product on the market.  Anyone have this CD?

Everything and Nothing / Was this an insult?
« on: July 17, 2014, 04:15:34 PM »
I'm a 46 year old guy.  A female coworker asked what I did on some time off I took and I said "House sitting and dog sitting for my mom while she was on vacation.". Then she says, "Oh, don't you live with your mom?". I never said anything ever about living with my mother so I don't know where she would get this idea.  Plus, why would I call it house sitting if I lived there?  As living with your mom at my age is universally thought of as uncool, odd, etc,  if somebody thinks you do then they must think you're unable to live away from mommy and are socially freakish or something.  I take it as an insult.  Would you?

PM me if interested.  Thanks

Everything and Nothing / Lesson learned: NEVER ask out a Coworker!
« on: June 28, 2014, 12:32:17 PM »
And I don't mean dating them, don't even ask them out.  Period!  Unless you like things being awkward as f*** in the office and ruining a perfectly good friendship.

Everything and Nothing / Does this woman want me to ask her out?
« on: April 20, 2014, 01:52:47 PM »
Hey all,

I am looking for opinions on a dating situation.

A woman I'm interested in has shown signs of mutual interest.  She's a single mom who in unattached.  Last week while chatting she told me when she's not hanging with her daughter she volunteers at two separate organizations.  She commented that she wants to cut back on her volunteer hours "to have more time to herself.". She offered this information without me asking about her free time or what she does on weekends. 

Does this sound like a subtle invitation for me to ask her out or get her number?

As with many guys, I often have trouble reading signs that a woman wants me to make a move.

Any ideas/comments greatly appreciated.  Thanks!!

Everything and Nothing / Insomnia treatments
« on: March 26, 2014, 05:12:31 PM »
I've had insomnia really bad the last month.  Fall asleep fine but wake up middle of the night.  In the morning I don't feel rested and have bags and dark circles under my eyes.  I tried Trazodone and I slept better but felt tired, foggy and depressed the next day.  Anyone suffer from this condition and can recommend things that work?  Any info greatly appreciated!

All of a sudden I'm having problems playing Band camp tracks on my phone.  Buttons don't work, music starts then stops, etc.  Any ideas what this could be?  My HTC One device does not have flashplayer, could this be a possible culprit?

Have you unearthed from your mountain of CD's lately something you forgot about or never gave a really good listen to?  I've been on this kick lately of primarily listening to stuff I never play, with surprising results.  So far here's what I got:

Ian Boddy--- the DiN label download series.  Man, much of this material should have been on CD and is even better than the regular releases.

Cell--Live at Kumharas 2006.  This is simply a psy trance masterpiece,from this Ultimae artist.  Can't believe I let this one gather dust for so long.

What are your dug up treasures?

Other Ambient (and related) Music / King Crimson reforming
« on: January 24, 2014, 05:49:21 AM »
Guess this was announced last September.  Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto back in the band (see my other post about Stick Men).  I thought Fripp said a couple years back he was retiring from music.  Hmmmm.  Well that's what Harold Budd said too and he's still releasing music.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Stick Men 2014 tour
« on: January 13, 2014, 02:02:48 PM »
Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, and Markus Reuter (whoaaaa!!) Playing together in San Francisco on January 23.  Must check this out.  This is a rare chance to see these masters in person.  Years ago when I went to see Karn, Torn and Bozzio as Polytown it was an amazing experience.  This looks to be the same.

18
Apparently this just came out about 10 days ago.  Available from Gterma (label) or Databloem.  Leans toward the "dark ambient" side.
