Now Playing / Re: Currently listening, part 1

Thanks to Julio & Chris for the heads up on two more Bandcamp releases.  I just picked up :

Disturbed Earth - Castles in Spain - sounds very Fripp-like.
Purl - Behind Clouds  -  hits the sweet spot of dubby ambient that I've been craving lately.

And of course while at Bandcamp I found something else...
Twelve - MAGIK - this one is new electronic music that sounds like old Kraftwerk, couldn't resist.  Find it here...MAGIK.

Lastly, a buddy at work gave me a jump drive with some random music he thought I'd like but probably not know about.  And my fav from it is The Giallos Flame.  It's kinda hard to describe it's part Italian horror movie music, part prog rock and part awesome!

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Buying Soundcloud 'plays'

Got a spammy message directing me to this rather bizarre soundcloud 'automator':

http://www.xorbots.com/soundcloudautomator.php

Buy their software and increase your audience (so they say). Why would anyone want to do this ? what can it possibly achieve ?

I believe Tomasz himself (AKA Subradial) took the photograph. You should check out his photo galleries on Facebook. The man is seriously multi-talented!

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.".

Mike,

Who took this absolutely brilliant image?  I am a photographer and gotta tell you that this blows me away.

Thanks

Same here. If someone is acting weird toward you, trying to force them to return to friendly interaction is most likely going to backfire. Not everybody has to be your buddy! People who send signals that they're not super-fond of you should just be given some room.

Everything and Nothing / Re: What TV do you have ? Plasma/LCD/OLED other ?
« Last post by mgriffin on April 18, 2014, 08:42:31 AM »
4+ yr old LG 47" LCD non-smart. What's the easiest way to make it smart so i can troll the net for tv stations and all to view stuff? I know most of the boxes come with crap like netflix/amazon/hulu+ (hey, if I'm paying I do NOT want ANY damn advertisements, even if it's 60 secs once or so during show). I have a PS3 and Amazon Prime, don't see a need for NetFlix as can't afford to add more the enough bills and being out of work still. Looking for cheap alternative should I decide to cut the chord.


I have a Roku 3 on both our upstairs and downstairs TVs. It's such a convenient interface for things like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and XBMC streaming, that we use all these things much more than we did before.

I believe Roku makes a cheaper dongle-type device that you can plug directly into your TV (not sure whether it's a USB or HDMI plug-in) that gives you all the same functionality as the external Roku 3 box.
