    I still giggle over those.

  3. Happy Birthday Grawk!

    Happy birthday! (party favour noise) hey you want to hear something funny? I started listening to Grateful Dead.
  4. SRL300 Limited

    Yes. It should be “...high-cost/performance-limited...” or perhaps not

    Guerilla glass FTW!
  6. The Headcase Stax thread

    Hey, Horseshit is a pretty accurate determining factor for the health and diet of the horse! Don't go insulting horseshit like that...
  7. Happy Birthday Aimless1!

    Happy birthday, Al! (party favour noise)
  8. What are you listening to Part the Third

    New Bill Nelson

    This is what slow motion photography is for—capturing fails in all their glory. 2:47 is where I start laughing, but start at 2:33 for the lead-in. And yes, it’s a party favour full of dusty chalk. So, doublepluswin.
  10. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Thank you, I needed to be reminded of that expression.
  11. Post what you're watching

    Yeah, I just watched it on my iPad, definitely need to give it a second viewing when it comes out on Blu-Ray (hopefully it does, streaming compression artifacts FTL, especially considering the budget -- I heard somewhere that it was the most expensive first season of a show since GoT, which is the high bar).
  12. Guitar-Case

    Yeah, that would be my prediction as well.
  13. What are you listening to Part the Third

    https://toundra.bandcamp.com/album/iii Instrumental Metal I mean, just check out "Lilim" https://toundra.bandcamp.com/track/lilim
  14. What are you reading now?

    Great idea. One of my favourite cyberpunk novels. I was going to re-read it to see if I could spot more of the differences than I picked up on from memory. The whole trilogy is worth reading (Altered Carbon + Broken Angels + Woken Furies). I can recommend the two standalone novels as well -- Black Man and Market Forces.
  15. What are you listening to Part the Third

    It's pretty much exactly what it says it is. Solo instruments recorded well, playing renditions of familiar tunes, if somewhat simplified. It pretty much sounds like someone in a guitar center going through the different sounds on a guitar/electric piano/saxophone/trumpet/steel drums/what-have-you, noodling around in an attempt to capture what was originally played in an ensemble format. Except the musician really knows the material. You have to really love the sound of the instrument to be able to listen to it for 36+ minutes, which I happen to (at least, the electric piano and the accordion ones). Take, for example, the electric piano version of Peter Frampton Comes Alive -- it's almost half as short as the album. And they don't add distortion, so it's not so much produced as performed straight. I'm tempted to grab one of the electric piano ones, just so I can sample the shit out of it. I'm listening on Tidal, on which the artist is listed as "Solo Sounds". Some of them are pretty brave -- Miles Davis' Kind of Blue! I should put it on shuffle.
