Forum Member Projects News and Promotion / Re: Miss you Forrest!

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!

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...

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

Then again, in the past when I walked away and stopped caring/pursuing, the woman ran back with open arms (and legs heh heh)

So finally she brought up lunch and it was to be two weeks later.  I suggested we meet up for drinks instead a couple days later.  She seemed enthusiastic enough about this and gave me her number.  When I texted her to see what our schedules were like to set it up, she replied: "I'll have to see about drinks.  It's unlikely I don't have my daughter most evenings.". 

Whenever a girl says "we'll see" or "maybe" it means NO.  So she had already flaked on two lunches and was now backpedaling on the drinks idea.  Does this sound like game playing to you, or a woman getting off on male attention while having no intention of getting involved?  Or both?  It seems like she enjoys this shit and won't stop until I walk away for good...

I ordered today, and got a nice personal note from Jeff.  Cool!

Peter Gabriel--Plays Live.  IMO the best live recording ever released, quite simply because the playing and sound quality are amazing, not to mention it surpasses the studio versions by a mile.

ASC--Truth be Told.  CD arrived a couple days ago and wow is this great, IMO even better than his last double album Time Heals All.  This disc seems more flowing and cohesive, not as dark and shadowy as its predecessor.  Blissfully melancholic and simply beautiful.  Best of 2014 so far for me.

I agree.  This is my favorite thread as I find out what I may be missing.

So despite the conclusion reached above, I've found it hard to crush my crush on this woman.  We had a lunch planned, wherein I had to adjust my schedule.  She called the day before saying she "forgot" she had to pick up her daughter from school at lunchtime and asked if we could reschedule to the next week.  I finally suggested we just drop the idea because it didn't seem she was into the idea with all this forgetting and excuses.  She then said we can go downtown and grab lunch sometime...?  Why would you even mention the idea if you obviously had no intention of following through???  I noticed all the cancellations were always suggested being rescheduled to the next week instead of that same week, and no exact day was ever offered.  Also saying sometime is about as vague and noncommittal as you can get.  I have gotten it through my head this ain't gonna happen, yet it's still hard because I see her every day.  What's worse, unrequited love in the workplace or an office romance gone sour?  I have experienced the latter but not never the former...

I pulled out Dagaz last week and man this is one of his best IMO.  Really ethereal nocturnal stuff.  Brilliant.

Well the prices on Amazon are usually grossly inflated.  I would check Discogs first.

I notice there is a new Grassow CD out on Databloem called First Gift of Life.

I've been immersed in these Echospace Detroit recent releases by Cv313 and Echospace.  Two are double CD's.  Ambient dub techno heaven!
