    This was split off from the What Are We Drinking Tonight thread. Seemed worthy of its own thread. I'll answer the two questions when I try that bottle of Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA I have sitting in the fridge. I have a feeling it will be the asnwer to that second question.

    I've actually had that one before! Last summer my friend took me to one of the Dogfish Head restaraunts in Gaithersburg, MD and I had that 90 minute IPA on a sampler. I would have liked to have tried the 120 minute, but they didnt have any in stock.

    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.

  3. 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.
  4. Finally got to Amoeba the other day and bought a buncha new cds

    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

    Looks like Wolfmother had to cancel some shows including this one due to the early birth of the bass player's baby.

     

    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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    C'mon Treeduck - If you're posting at ten to three in the morning, you have plenty of time wink.gif .

     

    If I can figure out how to do this, anyone can!!!!

    You know you want to, you still have yet to do your list of favorite albums of 2006 as well (a thread you started tongue.gif )

  9. 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.
  10. 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)
