    Have you seen me? II

    Hello my dearest music friends! How long has it been? A year? I let it come too far. So far that even Ray said I was away for a long time! My sincerest apologies for that! SF top ten #299 wtf! It been a crazy year, a busy year, but a great year too. You may now address me as Master of Science in physics and astronomy. That's right, I have graduated after five years of hard work of which the last one was probably the hardest but most interesting. It is no excuse to leave SF for so long just because I had to study, though. I have been lurking on reddit a lot, wasting my time on memes and advice animals. I tried to frequent the music section too, but lately they only post songs I already know and I'm not learning much new stuff. Summer's in the country now, and I'm doing some travelling to pass my last long holiday. I'll be starting a PhD in October, making a grown man's wage and leaving the house into the big world. I am very excited about it, and happy I can still rely on my lovely girlfriend (almost 4 years now!). But enough about me, what have you guys been doing the past year. What things changed, who left, who came back. Any marriages, babies? I want the full report!! Cheers! P.S. oh, I missed the smilies!! :rock:
  6. Please share all your knowledge of classic blues, bluesrock, Rhythm & Blues,... I love this genre, but I have the feeling I'm missing out many artists if I search into it alone. I'll start with a tune from the Louisiana Gater Boys, a guest superband in "The Blues Brothers 2000", Featuring: B.B. King (Vocals, Guitar), Eric Clapton (Vocals, Guitar), Bo Diddley (Vocals, Guitar), Travis Tritt (Vocals, Guitar), Jimmie Vaughan (Vocals, Guitar), Gary U.S. Bonds (Vocals), Isaac Hayes (Vocals), Tommy McDonnell (Vocals), Lou Rawls (Vocals), Koko Taylor (Vocals), Clarence Clemons (Vocals, Tenor Saxophone, Tambourine), Dr. John (Vocals, Piano), Charlie Musselwhite (Vocals, Harmonica), Billy Preston (Vocals, Synthesizer), Steve Winwood (Vocals, Organ), Jeff "Skunk" Baxter (Guitar), Jack DeJohnette (Drums), John Faddis (Trumpet), Joshua Redman (Tenor Saxophone), Grover Washington Jr. (Baritone Saxophone), Willie Weeks (Bass). How Blue can you get

    really slow boards

    Hi I don't know if it I'm the only one having this, but SF has become really slow in loading the main forum page since the new update a few weeks ago. All the other websites load very quick though.. Any other Europeans (or other continents) experience this?

    2011 In Music

    I've heard good things about Josh, so I'm staying optimistic Chad Smith also said that josh plays keyboard too, I wonder how that'll blend into their classic drum-guitar-bass-voice combo.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith has revealed that the group will release their as-yet-unnamed album in the last week of August this year.

    Rate the last album you listened to

    I can confirm that this album is at least worth an 8/10, probably even more after a few listens. While I'm here: maybe it's a good idea if we added our own scores to other's reviews. Because more votes = better average

    lyrics/quotes about sickness/flu

    thank you everyone, I'll get all your answers to my friend. I like a lot of your entries, I hope she does too
  22. Hi guys I was talking to a friend about her thesis. She examins how the flu interacts with your cells etc, don't ask me to go into detail. Now I got this cool idea, I said: you should put a nice quote on your thesis, make it extra personal. for example, one of our profs put this Run DMC quote on one of our exams: "Don't ask me, because I don't know why But it's like that, and that's the way it is" So now we're looking for a nice line to fit her thesis. All I've come up with so far is: Sick sick sick (by QotSA), but we obviously need something more.. meaningful Thanks ahead!
  23. I have no words, I hate it when people die young.
