Pete Namlook tribute box set---Whoa, 8 CDs of music!  This production looks great, with wooden box, nicely designed digipaks, etc.  The booklet is disappointing though.  No photos of Peter at all!  The essay portion was all written by theguy who produced the project.  Would've been more interesting to have some anecdotes by Fax artists about Peter, or a bio of his life, or other more interesting writing, rather than just how the project was completed, because it is after all a tribute to the man.  Yet the booklet missed the mark in focusing on his death instead of his life.  Almost as if Peter's presence is missing from the whole affair.  Maybe I'm just being overly picky though.  Anyway, lots of music to get through here.

Nachtplank--Echo Ark.  Incredible album on txt label.  Top 10 of 2014 spot guaranteed here.

Rudiger Gleisberg/Mathias Grassow--Ad Lucem.  On the gterma label from Sweden.  Fans of Gleisberg works on the Solitaire albums he appeared on , most notably Fearless on Recycle or Die, will find similar sonorities here, mixed with Grassow typical drones.

Jeff Pearce--With Evening Above.  Good album.  He does what he does best here.

Expo Seventy--Virtually from the Unknown.  On Essence Music.  Gentle, ethereal space rock.  Not as noisy and grungy as previous works, which is why I really like this one.  If you like Hawkwind, Berlin school and Krautrock you must hear this artist!

An excellent assessment of this CD.  I played this recently after a couple months and I think it's one of Steve's strongest albums in some years.  Definitely on my best of 2014 list.

Got the CD yesterday, it's excellent!!!  Confused on the bonus CD though, as the cover lists one track at 74 min. But there are actually TWO tracks on the disc ?.......

6
I saw this already.  The scan of back cover shows only TEN songs, so there's still something off here.

7
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?

The projekt website had the whole first track (24 min) up last time I checked.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Was this an insult?

I didn't find it confusing, I found it thoughtless and stupid to say to anyone unless they did know you and or you actually volunteered that information.  If I did live with my mother, it's not something I'd be spreading around at work or feel comfortable telling people.  Coworkers who obviously have a job and can support themselves I would never assume they lived with their parents or parent.  Funny, I did want to date this woman for awhile, so thank God I didn't.  It would've lasted a week at best before she pissed me off with some really insensitive stupid comment!

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?

Just to clarify, I didn't mean Forrest was a negative/confrontational member.  I was thinking of someone else who will go unnamed.  And by this I mean someone who turns every post into an argument and takes offense at the most benign comments.

I've been posting here for 14 years!  I've had my share of saying things I regretted and basically being a jackass.  I try to constantly be aware now of how my words might affect others, instead of just posting whatever I want to say and however I want to say it.  I do notice certain members have tended to take a negative and confrontational stance, and it doesn't help the positive vibe that "should" go on here. 

I do hope Forrest comes back.  I'm sure he will when he's ready to do so.

I ordered the Oliver Lieb CD as well!  Also found a copy of Nachtplank Echo Ark CD on Discogs.  Had to pay a small fortune for it unfortunately. 

Other current spins:  Arc "Umbra".  Great disc by Mark Shreeve of Redshift and Ian Boddy!
Move D/Namlook "The Retro Rocket.".  Their excellent third collaboration album.

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.

Too many hands on my time, too many feelings, too many things on my mind...

Everything and Nothing / Re: My coworker stopped talking to me
« on: June 26, 2014, 09:34:04 AM »
I forgot to follow up on the guy who stopped talking back in April.  We talk now.  Previous to his cold attitude, I had sent a reminder email about a procedure, because somebody f***** up on something.  Turns out it was this guy who made the gaffe.  He assumed I knew he was the guilty party, which I didn't, and got offended over the email.  Talk about dumb!  That's why they always say "don't assume"...

Now she's being "hot and cold" in the office (ignoring/being unfriendly one minute, then the complete opposite the next).  This git is craaaaaazy.  Think she's gonna have to find another male work buddy/gay male girlfriend  ;D

I love Roxy too...

Echo and the Bunnymen--Meteorites.  Ian McCullough claims this new album is a worthy successor to the band's firstfour classics.  Not quite, there is no shadowy darkness here.  But I will say it's the best stuff they've done since then.  strong songs, good production (aided by Youth of Killing Joke).  My only complaint would be there is no live drumming, everything is programmed.  Otherwise, highly recommend this one to all Echo fans
