Re: if we live to see the other side of this

Keep in mind, though -- when you're gettin' down with the SO and he/she puts on Jack Johnson, you won't be able to run crying to the friends who'd all looked on in horror as you led someone wearing a Creed t-shirt into the sold-out Bloc Party show. *looks around, whistles innocently* Although I mus...

Love is the refuge of the weak.

OK, right now I've got it set to autopick the players. Which means that when everyone is signed up, I'll tell the computers we're ready and they will make the teams.

Not to mention the house lights going down and the disco ball being illuminated, per John's request, during "Shapes." It was like prom. I actually think the Long Winters were spared the brunt of the sound problems; the Decemberists' mix was much, much worse. You couldn't hear acoustic guitar, accord...

My first show was New Kids on the Block at the New York State Fair in, I think, 1991. Let's never speak of that again.

If it makes one feel any better, the next two shows I went to were "Weird" Al Yankovic and Earth Crisis. So.

Best line of the night, from the person behind me, regarding the sound man (who was so bad that the Decemberists played the entire second half of their set sans PA, in a room that holds 600):

It's been a very special Blossom and I think we've all learned a lesson about love. The tent is big and other metaphors, etc. etc. Merlin, I think it's time we had a talk.

To withold the fastest or best possible way of sharing the rock in order to force us to do something we're already doing is redundant So I assume you're in support of sharing the albums online on P2P programs, then? After all, it's faster to download an album (although I disagree with you about "be...

I love my DOD "Milk Box" compression pedal. A mere $15 used, and the nicest, most compressiest sound ever. Boss makes a really cool overdrive/distortion combo pedal, the OS-2, which might be a good first pedal to check out. You can do some really interesting things with the color and drive adjustmen...
