By the way, Thrindle, what lyricists did you wind up putting in that paper?

Bob Dylan (that was a given)

Joni Mitchell (also a given)

Fiona Apple (we all know that her music is poetry)

Van Morrison (I had a section on joy, and his songs "Into the Mystic" and "Sweet Thing" were perfect)

Neil Young ("Helpless", also in the joy section)

Leonard Cohen (the song "Hallelujah", which is gutwrenchingly heartfelt)

Just to name a few...
Classic.

Yes, I've had to learn not to listen to the radio. Now all I do is listen to CDs.

Quote from: Gamblor not so gone.
Mostly, all of this stems from being pissed off at how shitty radio rock is, Story of the Year, Chevelle, Three Doors Down, Nickleback, The White Stripes, it's the end of good rock. And I'm sick of all this delicate acoustic horseshit. Get some balls, play something aggressive.


Ugh, I'm going to a concert later with Chevelle and Three Doors Down or Three Days Grace or Three Dog Night or whatever the hell "three" band it is.  My gf likes these bands and she came to an event of mine, so I feel obligated to go with her.  At least I don't have to pay for the tickets.  But getting laid will make up for the mediocre music.

It's CDs or NPR for me.

Weird. Oh

Maybe this is obvious, maybe it isn't, but throughout the emergence of a popular culture with music at the forefront, there are clearly trends in regards to what will be popular at a current moment. There will always be overkill to what's popular at the moment, then the record companies, media conglomerations, will latch onto the next big thing. The key is to discovering what the next big trend in music will be. Right now, there's an apparent 80's new wave revival with new bands like Franz Ferdinand, Modest Mouse, etc.

After the boy band wave of the late 90's, the industry moved towards boy bands with guitars, ie Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, etc.

My point is that with an industry driven by money and greed, there's no room for something new and different. There is and always will be great independent music out there. You just need not be lazy and search for it.
The more arguments you win, the fewer friends you will have.

Yeah, But this is true for ALL of the arts at this point.  Commercialism is killing creativity.  

I mean it when I ask:  What is so great about money?  It's just paper.

We put so much stock in things.
Classic.

I recently heard somewhere that the Eagles killed rock and roll. Is it true?

Yes, unless you count the thousands of great rock n roll bands who've come since The Eagles.  But god I hate The Eagles, I'll blame anything I can on them.

STP had like two good songs, Pearl Jam was a mixed bag  


You're wrong. STP has more than two good songs, have you even listened to Tiny Music? It's solid.




Quote from: pete
pearl jam and smashing pumpkins weren't really that rocking.  they were pretty whiny and very hard to rock out to.


Clearly you've only heard Pearl Jam singles. Wait didn't you say you didn't know much about music? Ohh thats right. Save it, Pete.
who likes movies anyway

I hate it when people have different opinions than me too.

Smashing Pumpkins were one of the biggest "hit or miss" bands ever.  Some of their songs are really well done, and their other stuff just crashes and burns.  It's obvious what time and consideration was spent on into sounding good, and what tracks were made to fill the gaps between those songs.
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye
