Everything and Nothing / Re: My coworker stopped talking to me

This has happened again.  This time it's really awkward as this person shares a long workstation with me and sits several feet next to me all day.  We got along great, always laughed, joked and chitchat etc.  The guy started giving me a "fake polite smile" when I made a comment, as if to say I'm not interested or you are annoying me.   He stopped making comments or engaging me in any way.  Except for good morning and goodnight.  Not wanting to bother him, I ceased engaging him and now sit in silence for 8 hrs.  Thank God for headphones!  I am getting used to it now close to one month later, but it's still quite depressing to me since there is no explanation for this.  Even a nearby coworker noticed we don't talk anymore.  To me this is more unnerving because I have to sit next to this person 40 hours a week.

You know, I really think this thread should be closed because every time I check it there are personal attacks.  Take it off forum, I say...

This is why I kept my one comment short and as neutral as possible.  ;)

Rush--Spirit of the Airwaves.  Live radio broadcast from 1980 show in Missouri.  This is so much better than their official live album Exit Stage Left, which had horrible muddy sound which ruined it.  I highly recommend this CD to all Rush fans!!!

I took half a Risperdal last night per my Psychiatrist for insomnia and slept like a baby, with no side effects.  Yay!!!

My doctor said at equinox time of year your brain tends to be more active and people have insomnia as a result.  I took a half a Trazodone 25 mg last night and it worked well, with no grogginess today. Yay!

Don't think audiophiles would be going to YouTube for stealing music or anything.  I see it as a good form of promotion.

Good advice!  If only it were that simple, everybody could sleep like a teenager again  ;)

I gave up smoking, been active for last month and dramatically improved my diet.  Still can't sleep.  Don't think it's sleep apnea but rather anxiety stress based insomnia.  Benadryl?  I'll look into that

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!

Same here.  Play this on a home system, no headphones

Solyaris was lap steel, but it's all good

Check out "Moyland" by FSP, also "Gent" is great live album.

Steve Roach--Midnight Moon (and a lot of his music after this release, such as Fever Dreams series, Vidna Obmana's Surreal Sanctuary on Hypnos...)

Suso Saiz-- Hypnotics (long sold out but downloads available I'm pretty sure)

Jorge Reyes--lots of his music, especially collaboration with Saiz, Suspended Memories, etc)

Mo Boma--Extreme label duo used this a lot

David Sylvian collabs with Holger Czukay...

Aqua Dorsa (Oophoi and Enrico Coniglio)--The November Earth.  On Gterma label Sweden.  Great dark haunting quiet sounds, one of last projects by Gigi before his passing.  On a big stereo you will miss the subtlety, therefore headphones listening recommended at moderate volume.  Coniglio provides abstract guitar drones which meld with Oophoi soundscapes. 

The Long Night is excellent.  Two thumbs up

I agree with your assessment.  This album is very heavy on the trance sequencing, some of the tracks being very repetitive, but it's a good album if you like driving sequencer workouts.

FSP is awesome!  Too long since their last release

Rhea--The True Color of Titan's Lakes.  Deep space stuff a la Phobos,Tau Ceti, Oophoi, etc.  Got this at Groove Unlimited website.

Nik Tyndall--Plejaden Suite, Trance Dance.  A couple of his early albums around the time of his Hearts of Space release called Lagoon.  Sort of melodic and new agey, but although still very nice atmospheric music.  My only criticism of his music is it sounds like all digital synths with preset sounds.

Bernd Kistenmacher--Totally Versmold.  This is basically live versions of his Thoughts album, which I didn't have so very worthwhile. 

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?
