  2. I was really crying during Jackass 2. I just couldnt stop laughing, they forced themselves out. Oh wait, does that count?
  3. Yeah, this movie was really damn good. Quite graphic at times, and can be kinda slow moving, but extremely well constructed and acted, particularly by Leonardo DiCaprio.
  4. QUOTE (RUSHHEAD666 @ Oct 22 2006, 09:32 PM) Thanks Moonraker! It figures!!!! Timing is everything! I hope they come around again next year! Earl They may come around before that, these tiny bands like to tour a lot to promote thier albums and hit the same city multiple times in a year. Keep checking thier website after this club tour is done.
  5. QUOTE (RUSHHEAD666 @ Oct 21 2006, 04:57 PM) Right on PK! I will surely try and check them out next time they hit San Francisco! Cheers! Earl You just missed them. They were in SF last night and Thursday night.
  6. Just saw these guys about 5 hours ago, very damn good show. I think I enjoyed thier show at the Fillmore last year over tonights, but they are damn good. And yes, PK has an incredible taste for music, he definatly knows what hes talking about.
  7. Just got tickets to see Wolfmother and Silversun Pickups (I REALLY love Silversun right now) at the Fillmore on 12/6
  8. Wow, they are actually getting the right idea to fight piracy. Unlike the RIAA who sues thier customer base, most of which are people that dont have a hope to pay for what they are being sued for, these guys are actually conceeding that they are way overcharging for thier product. I wonder how well cds would sell if they dropped the price from 18.99 for a new release back down to 10.
  9. Mon: Teus: Weds: Download Nip/Tuck episodes from not being at home to watch them last night Thurs: Download Lost episodes I forgot to watch the night before Fri: Sat: Sun:

  11. Very cool review kazz! I am going to have to write a little something later today for the Download Festival show I saw last night, absolutely amazing.

I would still love to be at this festival. If only I lived on the west coast. Ohhh that is too bad, even though thier music is completely derivative of most every 70's band, they do put on a good live show (saw them at BFD last June). They did say they may come back in nov/dec to the bay area though, so maybe I will catch em then.
  14. I would be on there more often, but I listen to music in my iPod, not through any media program. Until they make a program to track what songs you play in the Ipod, it would be kinda pointless for me to have one I guess.
  15. Was given a free ticket to see The Killers on Oct 9th by a friend, so it looks like I will be going to that show after all. Also going to catch the Decemberists at the Warfield on Oct 20th, as they have added a new date that I can actually make. These are the shows I plan on hitting in the next couple of months. 9/23 - Lovefest 2006 - Paul Oakenfold, Massive Attack, many many many djs 9/24 - Folsom Street Fair - The Presets, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult 9/30 - Download Fest 2006 - Beck, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muse, The Shins, Rogue Wave, TV On The Radio, Wolfmother, Coheed & Cambria, Kinky, The Like, Sean Hayes, The Mutaytor 10/2 - We Are Scientists, Art Brut, The Spinto Band 10/9 - The Killers 10/10 - Roger Waters 10/13 - Kasabian 10/20 - The Decemberists 11/22 - Mates Of State

Ha ha, well it doesn't matter what the time is I'm just as lazy 2.50a.m. as I am at Noon... You know you want to, you still have yet to do your list of favorite albums of 2006 as well (a thread you started )

    Nip / Tuck

    I've been watching since the very first episode, one of the very few tv shows that are actually worth watching to me. I cant stand all the fake reality shows (how real is it for a bunch of people to be stranded on an island where the whole point is not to go home???) I enjoyed last weeks episode with Matt turning to Scientology, I wonder what direction they are going to be going with that storyline.
  18. The idea behind this thread is to put up a playlist, sorta like the celebrity playlists on the Itunes Music Store of music you are into. The only rule is you have to limit yourself to 10 songs. The lists you make dont have to follow any specific theme either, so it doesnt have to be your top 10 favorite songs of all time. It could simply be the first 10 songs that came up on shuffle, or a playlist of your favorite 10 death metal songs for Halloween. Post as many lists as you want. --- My playlist is 10 songs of bands that I am listening a lot of at the present moment. They arent really in any order of preference, just an order I think flows well. I'll also give a short description for each selection as I dont think most people have heard of these bands. 1) The Smiths - Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before (One of the greatest and most influential indie bands to ever form, this song is from thier last album, Strangeways, Here We Come) 2) Spoon - Me And The Bean (A good friend of mine is a freak about this band and has dragged me to go see them a number of times, thier sound is quite organic and stripped down. This one is off Girls Can Tell, one of my favorites by them.) 3) Mates Of State - Think Long (Another band I have seen a few times and was turned on to by thier live shows. A two piece act with one guy on drums and a girl on keyboards, both singing.) 4) Cut Copy - The Twilight (A very infectious synthy, dancy band from Australia, who recently toured with Franz Ferdinand. This one is off Bright Like Neon Love, which really has no weak moments at all.) 5) Silversun Pickups - Kissing Families (This band has just released an album which I think is the best thing to be put out this year, I have listened to thier debut, Carnavas, at least a dozen times in the last few weeks. This song however is off thier Pikul EP of last year, not thier debut LP release.) 6) Sons & Daughters - Dance Me In (An extremely scottish band with a punkish sound and agression to them. I've been into them about a year now but thier songs still seem to pop up for me often. Dance Me In is a favorite by them off The Repulsion Box.) 7) John Lennon - Remember (Probably the only one on this list many people have heard before. A favorite off of Plastic Ono Band, which I have just recently discovered) 8) Loop!Station - Towering (My favorite local band here in San Francisco, but quite different from most everything I have ever heard. They are an extremely talented, classically trained two piece consisting of a cello player and a singer with the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. This song is off their latest release.) 9) David Bowie - The Voyeur of Utter Destruction (As Beauty) (A quite dark and synth driven song off of Bowie's Outside album from the mid 90's. This album marked a comeback creatively for him from his 80's slump) 10) The Helio Sequence - Take, Take, Take (Another great album I have recently discovered, with many transcendent and atmospheric tones to this song, especially towards the end. Very Kasabian/Caribou, though released years before either of those bands had put out an album) If you think downloading music for free is a bad thing, dont click here
  19. I have had the misfortune of having to sit through The Reason live. Why the hell did Velvet Revolver pick Hoobastank of all bands to have as an opener... (reposted my reply, sorry for the confusion)
  20. Haaaa I feel dumb, I just hit the edit button on PK's post instead of the reply button. Someone take my mod ability away, lol.
  21. Ace Of Base - The Sign Worst song ever....
  22. Interesting trailer, it doesnt look nearly as flashy and high-tech as the last 3 Bond movies, which personally seemed extremely distracting to me. I still dont know though, I am still not convinced this guy is Bond from that trailer, this guy looks more like he would be fitting in the role of the villain then Bond himself.
  23. I havent really heard much Fishbone, but I remember seeing thier performance on SNL when Comedy Central used to rerun their older episodes and was really into thier show. Wheres a good place to start?
  24. QUOTE (Rush! @ Sep 7 2006, 02:36 PM) Last night, September 6th, 2006, PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, New Jersey. Here is my review: Well guys, I went to the show last night and it was utterly mindblowing. Roger's voice sounded terrific, and the band was very tight & focused. Roger seemed to be happy to be at the PNC Bank Arts Center as well, he smiled a lot. At one point, after one of the songs ended, he said "I can't think of a better way of spending my birthday." Roger actually has the same b-day as I do, he was born yesterday in 1943, he is now 63. I was born yesterday, 15 years ago. So the fact that it was both of our birthdays and that I was seeing him live is something I'll never forget. There were also some pyrotechnics incorporated into the show during some songs. Great job with the lighting as well. The Setlist: In The Flesh Mother Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5) Have A Cigar Wish You Were Here Southampton Dock The Fletcher Memorial Home Perfect Sense (Parts 1 & 2) Leaving Beirut (Rog received a 50/50 mix of boos & cheers. Cheers obviously for the music, some people I know said this tune was horrible but I didn't think it was that bad. Boos because I believe some of the lyrics were anti-American). Sheep (During the 23rd Psalm section of the song, a man came out of nowhere holding a couple of strings connected to a giant pink inflatable pig! It was truly amazing, he came up right near where I was sitting and I nearly touched the pig.) 15-minute Intermission 2nd Half, Dark Side of The Moon: Speak To Me/Breathe On The Run (the backdrops were very trippy, reminiscent of the early projected slide shows PF used back in the late 60's, they also had some random train noises in the song) Time The Great Gig In The Sky (the studio version of this song still frightens me, and I don't like what the 3 female vocalists on Pulse did with it, but the woman who sang this (name escapes me right now) did a FANTASTIC job. She packed so much emotion into her wordless vocals) Money (Dave Kilminster was one of the definite highlights of the show, he sang on a lot of songs and was the lead guitarist. He had a really nice light green guitar as well. He ROCKED on this song! His singing wasn't bad either) Us & Them Any Colour You Like (fantastic job on the keyboards & synths by Jon Carin & Harry Waters (<<Roger's son!) Brain Damage Eclipse (great ending to Dark Side, they really rocked at the end of it) Encore: The Happiest Days of Our Lives/Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2) Vera (very emotional, Roger actually began to tear halfway through this) Bring The Boys Back Home (Roger's veins were pulsating in his neck during this one, he extended it to about 2 1/2 minutes, fantastic job) Comfortably Numb (great ending, Roger came out right before they left for good, and said something like: "Did you like the f'ing pig?". Absolutely mindboggling show. The crowd was great too, although it kind of annoyed me that during almost every song he did, large amounts of people were walking up & down the stairs, probably to get more booze. Sad. But I stayed the entire time. Fantastic, astonishing. I can't stop describing it. If any of you have a chance to see Roger this year, BUY TICKETS! You won't regret it. Holy shit, I am going to be seeing him in early October and I hope to hell he keeps that same setlist. Its too bad there isnt as much Amused To Death material in there, but I will settle for Sheep, Vera, Fletcher Memorial Home. Cant wait, thanks for the review.
