  1. Hello, This is my NYC based folk project. It's loud, fast, and uses lots and lots of different musical tricks. Appalachian melodies, jazz hooks, acoustic metal breaks, and far-eastern harmonies. Anyway, I'm promoting it everywhere I possibly can, here's a kickstarter where you can buy the new album. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mylia/zack-orion-and-the-ardeshir-mountain-boys-debut-al and here's one of the singles. http://soundcloud.com/a440static/love-is-the-rounder
  2. Bill Hicks and David Cross are my two personal faves. I prefer David Cross tho, even tho his stand up is really hicks-esque, where Cross wins is that he is pretty much laugh your tukus off hilarious every second, whereas Hicks can sometimes take a turn to the mystical for way too long Tho no one can scream and rant like Hicks. Also, Cross is a bit more varied in his abilities, Mr. Show is da best. Oh, and props to Patton Oswalt
  3. Good American culture= www.myspace.com/machinegoboom (this band is quite lovely by the way) Bad America= www.getsnuggie.com
  4. All of Andrew Bird's whistling is excellent
  5. I dunno, I think there are plenty of talented female musicians out there, just depends on where you look- Khaki King, Kim Gordon, Kim Deal, Karen O, Feist and more. And yeah, a couple on that list are singers, but I'm not sure why we would disqualify singers from the list- as generally the singer is one of the more important parts of a band, no? Oh, and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, his bass player(Joanna something, I always forget her last name) and Janet Weiss on drums.
  6. And Kings of Leon are on the best rock album list! ?? First off, the new KoL album is nowhere near A-ha Heartbreak, secondly, the new KoL is just a poor-man's Evil Urges AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGH
  7. I mean, holy beelzebub And now, for your listening pleasure, Grammy award nominated.....musician.... KID ROCK! How is that a contender for best rock ALBUM? as in, a whole collection of songs? In fact, how are any of those ALBUMS up for best ALBUM? As even the best of those have maybe four listenable songs KID ROCK? How about Stephen Malkmus' Real Emotional Trash? How about MMJ's Evil Urges? (oh wait, that's in best 'alternative' album... what the hell does 'alternative' even mean anymore?) How is Evil Urges even remotely alternative? I listened to that and thought that it was one of t
  8. Quintuple barf. And the academy wonders why no one watches these things anymore. The only things that even belong anywhere near an award on that list are Zappa plays Zappa and Mars Volta.
  9. Well I could care less about both Coldplay and Satriani, but I'll weigh in on this one. First off, on that video the poster writes that the 'chord progression is the same' well that's the first problem with the argument, as chord progressions are un-copyright-able, and it is a common practice (especially in jazz) for someone to take someone's chord progression and just write something new on top. Now, the melody so, they match up on the words 'Rule the world' Coldplay's pickup notes 'If I could' don't fit in with the satriani at all, and then Satriani and Coldplay share common notes h
  10. ...And Led Zep fans will continue to ignore Sonic Youth.....
  11. Maybe it's because Chinese Democracy is exceptionally bad, even by Guns 'N' Roses/Hair Metal standards.
  12. Edit the Sad Parts is an amazing song, especially considering how... not very good it is (listen to the... 'drummer') Moon and Antarctica is a modern classic, 3rd Planet is one of those songs that grabs ya from the opening notes. I'd really give any of their stuff a shot, even Sad Sappy Sucker has some pretty awesome moments. I'm not the biggest Before the Ship Even Sank fan, it has some really great songs, but it also has some of Modest Mouse's lowest (non lo-fi related) moments Good News was the first time that they had to focus down into songs (whereas on earlier releases you'll

  15. Petition For Axl Rose To Retire From The Spotlight 1. Tim Ryan 2. Miamisammy 3. Sébastien 4. Kenne 5. Batman 6. bluesboy 7. scott Please find yourself a time machine and retire about 30 years ago.
  16. Explosions in the Sky are Austin Based. There are actually loads of great ambient instrumental groups from Austin.
  17. The clash rose above the average punk band because they incorporated reggae beats with jazz without losing their guitar punk sound, unlike the average jazz-punk manchester band of the time, who relied on bad steel drums and whistle technique, whereas the Clash used real jazz chords. The Clash also used Beatles style psychedelia on several recordings (secretly!) Overall, the Clash were a punk band who weren't afraid to go beyond typical three chord rapid fire punk format, while keeping a sort of contemporary punk feel to a majority of their work. Of course some of their stuff was horribl
  18. Velvet Underground/Stooges Crass/Clash Dead Kennedys/Joy Division Sonic Youth/Dinosaur Jr.
  19. !!Blasphemy!!!! Tchaikovsky is masterful. I would make the guess that you're playing a bowdlerized version arranged my someone else.
  20. A little Spanish, and some Italian and French. (The Italian and French has just been picked up from years of playing and reading classical music... I wouldn't dare try to communicate with someone in those two.... but I can ask for directions and introduce myself and some other stuff in Spanish)
  21. Aaah, that's what I thought (please note that I am not 100% ignorant as a few words later I went on to say something like "Maybe the translator just has a grasp of Spanish as rudimentary as mine")
  22. I've been thinking about english a lot, too. I've been watching some heroes, and since I'm watching on the interwebs (*cough....not a pirate*cough*) It will occasionally have subtitles in Spanish, and sometimes characters speak in Spanish so there's some in-show translating going on too. Anyway What I noticed is there are times that Spanish doesn't pick up on.... the 'degree' of what is being expressed, maybe it's more about tone there, but I've noticed a few times that "Bien" has been put in for various positive affirmations, "Good" "okay" "great" etcetera. Maybe the translator on
