  1. By 'Hindu themed' do you mean it made use of sitar, tabla or other instruments from the subcontinent? Or do you mean Hindu in the sense of mantras and sanskrit lyrics?
  2. Y'all thought you'd got rid of me But my life is meaningless without my Fin and Farin. Coming back here reminds me of all our time together, and makes me a bit sad. I don't know where they are (or even if they're still alive???) but I hope they're happy. (Joined at 17, now 32 and living a life i never imagined for myself !)
  3. It's unfortunate that FB has swallowed the BB system whole - this version of the forums is definitely superior to the one we spent time on (tho of course nothing will replace the excitement of the little flashing folder we used to have), but there aren't many folks here to appreciate it.
  4. I guess forums are old-skool now, but a facebook thread is no place to have a conversation. And not to forget, Facebook is evil. My gosh where are those simple days of staying up till 3 AM as a teenager to play games with my friends from around the world on a message board. There's been a lot that's happened since then, and life is very different, but I think those were some of the deepest, truest connections I made.
  5. I was just thinking the same, 'lena. I miss when the internet was our little secret.
  6. Happy new year (tho it's february). I've just turned 30! Do you remember when I joined as a young cherub of 17 or 18? Them days...
  7. Surely 'Where the Wild Roses Grow' is the mother of all twist endings?
  8. I dropped by to suggest this very song and, as one of its most frequent listeners, clarify that at no point during the song is a phone and/or booth mentioned.
  9. I think I'll keep coming back just to keep track of this thread, so KEEP IT ALIVE GUYS. In other news, wrong thread, but I just discovered I missed out on listening to the Black Angels last year and I'm kicking myself about it.
  10. DEAD THREAD? fear not - I will bring it back to life. My favourite album of the year is, without doubt, the new Nothing (Guilty of Everything). Mmm, that noise, those waves, that distortion, the hooks, the intros, the closes - it's the closest I've got to a flawless new, non-clone shoegaze album. Obviously, this will drop to second place once Flies on You is out. Everyone else's album of the year is Real Estate's Atlas. It took me a few weeks to see why because I'm STILL mesmerised by the Nothing record, and not much else is registering. I don't know if it was because I had to write about it or what but the Notwist's Close to the Glass was not really my cup of chai. New Pure X (Angel) sounds great, great, great, though I'm still fonder of Heavy Air. My beloved mainstream shoegazers Ringo Deathstarr came out with their third album - God's Dream - this year. It's good, though I have to say they lost something when they took up the more pop/twee Imagine Hearts sound and abandoned the darker Sparkler vibes. Alcest's 'Shelter' was super disappointing on account of the fact that they're getting soft and losing the black metal influence that made them worth listening to. Balthazar, who I don't really listen to, have a great song called 'Leipzig' that you might like if you're into old-fashioned harmonies. It's also a lovely song on its own, but the harmonies are hyper old-school. Off the top of my head, that's my List of Notable Listens of 2014. Well, there are more, but I can't be bothered listing them.
  11. Oh yeah and I have got my MBV fix obvs. I was most non-excited for this.
  12. I'm really upset I missed this so I couldn't lol at the appropriate time (because this deserves several lols)
  13. All About Satellites and Spaceships - 7% Solution
  14. Not at all - It's easier for me to split a bill in my head than take the time to get a calculator to do it. Is more fun too (ever played the game where you figure out all the prime factors of a license plate number on long car trips?). I don't really like relying on technology - it undermines my perfectly capable brain.
  15. What's one mass shooting that has been prevented by a 'good guy with a gun'? Actually hang on - how many other countries have mass shootings? The last time we had one was when the British opened fire on an unarmed peaceful protest in Amritsar. That was in 1919. We had a school shooting in 2007 (in my city, in fact - couple of kilometres away from my house) - one kid nicked his father's gun and shot a classmate. That was about it. Of course, since I'm not American and not talking about America, I doubt this is of interest to anyone (India? Isn't that where curry comes from?)
