  1. Yes. It was probably a spambot though. HYE ignored a family member's friend request on Facebook?
  2. Nope the name's Mike. sorry that answer took so long :P

  3. I'm listening to "Race for the Prize" by The Flaming Lips. I'm surprised that I never warmed up to them before. They're pretty damn good.
  4. If they replaced the stupid fantasy scenes with concert footage, the film would be much better.
  5. 65 and sunny! Beautiful day with a nice breeze. I walked my dog for about an hour around the neighborhood.
  6. No but I've always wanted to. To rub salt in, I see hot air balloons all the time during the summer just where I live. Have you ever seen The Godfather Part III?
  7. Cowboys. Hank Hill is a fan. John Lee Hooker or Muddy Waters?
  8. It's about 18" x 18" not the exact measurement but my old monitor was 12 by 12 and this one is about 6 inches bigger in both dimensions.
  9. I watched The Godfather Part 2 for the first time (best 4 hours ever spent on a movie) and my new computer monitor arrived!
  10. I just remembered I have "Pink Floyd The Wall" in my DVR- in high definition. I need to get around to seeing that again!
  11. No I don't own any of those albums, but I have heard nothing but good things about their audio work. I will take a look on e-bay. Also, when did you see them live? That's really awesome. Unfortunately due to Richard's recent passing another reunion is impossible.
  12. I searched for any Pink Floyd topics in this forum, but searching yielded no immediate results, so I will start this one. This is the discussion topic for Pink Floyd and related musicians, like Syd, David and Roger's solo careers as well. Pink Floyd are, in my opinion, the best English band ever and an amalgamation of some of the best musicians who ever lived. Their musical maturation is fascinating to observe from album to album. Syd Barrett was a genius and even The Madcap Laughs is a fantastic and quirky work. Roger Waters is a kickass bassist and the band went to crap without his songwriting. Richard Wright is responsible for the amazing atmosphere generated by some of their greatest albums and was a fucking fantastic keyboardist, RIP. David Gilmour has a great singing voice and the emotion oozes out of his guitar, he is the archetype of what many guitarists strive to be. Nick Mason's drumming was never quite the main focus of the music, but his work on Piper and Ummagumma is perfection. So, anyone want to talk Floyd? I'm listening to The Wall right now actually.
  13. I was skimming over the main forum page and read "Plant does the O2 11th Sep" as "Plant dies 11th Sept." My heart skipped a beat. Other than that I've had a pretty good day.
  14. I bought an original pressing of the US/Capitol release "Something New" at a flea market today for seven bucks, and in pretty good condition, too. Now my dad has to hook up the record player
  15. I am sort of a new fan, and I'm actually going album shopping later today. I have read that Songs in the Key of Life is one of his best, but are there any underrated records of his you guys could recommend?
  16. This thread is for the discussion of one of my favorite musicians and personal role model: Stevie Wonder! He rose to the top from humble beginnings and with some of the worst cards that can be dealt to a person, yet managed to become one of the best, most soulful singers and keyboardists in pop and rock. I'm currently listening to "We Can Work It Out," which tops the original in my opinion. My favorite album by him is Innervisions, but I still have much of his work to listen to.
  17. Today is the last day of summer vacation. I don't have a ride to go anywhere either.
  18. Not all opinions are created equal. I'm not completely sold on the decriminalization or legalization of marijuana yet, but there are some really stupid laws in place against people who have used or been caught with pot. A marijuana trafficker can be imprisoned for life (and even killed in some countries), but just recently a man in my state got less than ten years for raping a teenage girl. In many states, people who were convicted of marijuana possession cannot go on welfare or collect food stamps, but convicted murderers and child molesters can.
  19. On this day in 1960, John, Paul, George, Pete and Stu performed as "The Beatles" for the first time in Hamburg, Germany.
  20. The Beatles in Mono boxed set is completely sold out according to Amazon.
  21. I got four books recently, 3/4 for summer reading assignments. I got Generation Kill (Iraq War from the perspective of a Rolling Stone journalist who followed a squad during Iraqi Freedom), but haven't read it yet. I also got Flowers For Algernon, The Taming of the Shrew, and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I read Flowers for Algernon last year, actually. But I was so impressed that I just wanted to read it again for my own leasure. I am at Act 5 in The Taming of the Shrew. I usually hate Shakespeare, but reading it wasn't so bad once I equated all of the characters with people from The Office. It made it much easier and more entertaining. ...Caged Bird was okay. I was able to appreciate what Maya went through and the barriers she broke, and it was very engrossing. But I could hardly identify at all with her or anyone in the novel, actually.
  22. I watched "Prom Night" two nights ago. It was a complete waste of time. It had literally no redeemable qualities. There was no suspense, nothing even remotely scary, and there isn't even gratuitous violence to make up for the lack of the two. I then watched "Step Brothers" with my grandparents, which is a great comedy. It's way more quotable than Superbad, Knocked Up or other modern comedies.
  23. Actually you can check out four new Beatles Rock Band clips right here (they took the note charts out) Sgt. Pepper/With a Little Help From My Friends Here Comes the Sun Revolution Birthday
