Hmmm, thought rare stuff was being released.  Ming Noir was available for years.  Kind of disappointing for the first release on this label.

Ishq--Blue Infinity and Seascapes.  Pressed CD's limited to 90 copies.  Good stuff as usual by Ishq.  Some tracks on both have some distortions, which is annoying and puzzling.

Anything by ASC on Silent Season sells out within 2-3 days now, even with 400 copies pressed.  They also limit 2 CD'sper customer, as this avoids buyers hoarding copies to sell later at grossly inflated prices on Discogs.

Who cares what he used, the end result is all that matters to me.  There was a warmth to his creations that many with more advanced gear would never tap into.  Just because you have the most expensive guitar does not make you a better player.

Cosmic Ground s/t.  Hmmmmm, the 70's TD vibe here is well done but music wise it doesn't leave a lasting impression.  I will have to give it a couple more spins...

Expo70, an ambient spacerock artist, has released lots of tapes.  His music is pretty lo-fi anyway, but I think the tapes are a way to put out a lot of music for the hardcore fans.  He does have official CD releases on various labels, in addition to limited vinyl pressings and digital downloads.  But yeah, who wants to bother with cheap tapes?  And who actually has a tape deck anymore???  Haven't had one for at least 25 years.

Steve Hillage--Rainbow Dome Musick.  This timeless masterpiece is high on my all-time faves list.  Stunningly beautiful two long tracks.  Ethereal in the extreme.

Yeah, Outland 2 is great, best of the whole series.  Shades of Orion 2 and 3 are way better than the first one, so you should check those out.  I am also awaiting my Namlook tribute box.  Should be another month though for that as I preordered late last year.

Update:  the object of my affection gave off too many red flags to even consider pursuing... the main one being ditzy, unreliable, forgetful, and flaky.  This woman could not remember when Easter was, two days after Easter Sunday (andwe had talked about our individual plans the Friday before Easter)!!!  Put several other recent examples like this together and I start thinking, "Do I want to date someone this wigged out mentally?". Disappointingly, the answer was no.  She is also a divorced single mother, which oftentimes can be a recipe for disaster in the long run (especially when the child is only 10 years old).

One good thing about potential dating of coworkers is that you can screen out the red flags before even going on one date!  ;)

I would investigate the following series of Namlook releases:

Shades of Orion
2350 Broadway

Yes, another masterpiece!  I would note, however, isn't there really only one member of Aglaia (Gino *Fioravanti)?  Toso just does "editing".  Both my limited cdr digipak releases by Aglaia on hic sunt leones are only signed by Gino...

Rush--Buenos Noches Motor City.  2 disc live show from the Hemispheres album tour 1978.  Awesome find this weekend at a tiny record shop.  It's a Bootleg soundboard recording.  It's probably online somewhere as a download.  Like Spirit of the Airwaves CD released in UK recently, this also sounds better than the crappy sound on Exit Stage Left.  Rush was definitely one of the greatest bands of the 70's and early 80's, that's for sure.

Bill, excellent take on this and I planned to do it this way (the casual friend-like activity first, then go from there), so nice to read someone who agrees with my thoughts exactly.  I've found the "wanna go out sometime" approach often doesn't work too well as its too direct and scares some women off, but as you said it may work with older women.

Hahaha!  Good one.  No, the silent one is a male coworker.  But the woman may join the list if I gaffe this up!

Hmmm, well IMO coffee is a total cliche.  But thanks for the suggestion.  :)

Actually though I just am trying to gauge her interest so things are not awkward in the future.  Especially since she is a coworker in the office. 

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!!

Thanks Bill and Mike.  Yes, this is exactly what I decided to do.  It's still awkward to sit six feet from someone all day without a word.  Now there's not even a "good morning.".
