  1. Plans was pretty good, as were a few tracks from Transatlanticism, havent heard much more of their older studio albums though. I saw them twice last year, once at their club tour and again for a small festival they did in the winter. Both of the times they had much more energy then I thought they would, considering the airy sound of their music. Going to see them again in August with Spoon and Mates of State, all 3 of those bands I'm pretty excited about, should be a good show.
  2. QUOTE (DWarner @ Jun 5 2006, 02:25 PM) I saw Wolfmother last night. Pretty friggin' insane. They were good eh? I will be seeing them Saturday.
  3. Just won free tickets to see Every Move A Picture on Thursday at Popscene. I also plan on catching the Raconteurs as they are going to be playing a free show at Amoeba Records a little earlier in the evening. 2 free shows in one night I also think I'm gonna pick up some tickets for Kamelot when they get to SF as well Kazz.
  4. Went to Amoeba again today and found some things I wanted. Thomas Dolby - The Golden Age Of Wireless Electrelane - Rock It To The Moon Nine Inch Nails - The Perfect Drug (single) Stereolab - Refried Ectoplasm: Switched On, Vol. 2 Leon Minkus - Don Quixote (Sofia National Opera Orchestra)
  5. I heard that as well, that Topher would play Venom. Venom is supposed to be some huge hulking creature though. I could see him being Carnage though, that guy wasnt as huge.
  6. 1) The trash baler at Costco #475 emits the foulest smells known to man 2) On windy days, there is no escaping the smell 3) Vomit bags should be required working materials on windy days
  7. I didnt like how that whole hanso foundation ended up being one big monster.com commercial.
  8. Ok, so now it is official. 5 years is enough time to turn a national tragedy and thousands of deaths into millions in profits for the entertainment industry.
  9. Correction. Just won free tickets to see Pearl Jam on the 15th, so I will be going on that date instead of the 16th.

  11. QUOTE (Necromancer @ May 18 2006, 03:44 PM) QUOTE (Moonraker @ May 17 2006, 08:34 PM) I havent seen them, but they are a bay area band and do a lot of local shows every once and a while. Really? Is it Ronnie Montrose? I didn't even know if he was still alive to be honest. Yup, still alive and kicking. It actually looks like tonight they are playing in NYC. Pulled this list of tourdates off ronniemontrose.com May 27th St. Louis, MO American Rib May 20th Annapolis, MD Rams Head Tavern May 19th Ridgefield, CT The Ridgefield Playhouse May 18th New York, NY B.B. King Blues Club & Grill Also looks like earlier this year, they played a number of bars in the east bay.

  13. Going to see the Lovemakers (for the 6th time) at Bimbo's 365 tonight. First time going to this club, so it should be interesting.
  14. QUOTE (rushgoober @ May 16 2006, 10:32 PM) QUOTE (keneticdreamer @ May 15 2006, 12:34 AM) The House Of D - Written and directed by David Duchovny. Not an X-Files fan and wasn't sure what to expect. Was more interested in Robin Williams' role. (And he was brilliant.) The film itself turned out to be one of the best I have ever seen. Airplane! - How can anyone not love this big ball of goofiness? Monty Python And The Holy Grail - Pure classic What Dreams May Come - Emotionally powerful and philosophically deep. Robin Williams' finest performance. The World According To Garp - I love Robin in his more serious roles, and this one moves me to tears every time. i'm glad you appreciate robin williams serious roles. i cringe every time he does a movie like flubber or ( ) R.V. the world according to garp and what dreams may come are both great movies with fantastic performances by williams. airplane and holy grail are absolute comedy classics. since i like your tastes, i'll have to check out the house of d. Speaking of his serious roles, I really liked his performance in One Hour Photo as well. Definatly played the creepy obsessive guy with a human touch. Mark Romanek is just a damn fine director too though.
  15. QUOTE (D-13 @ May 16 2006, 08:49 PM) 1/6 from Futureshop came in today... 1. Fort Minor- The Rising Tied For the people that say that there is no good rap out there.... If you really wanna hear good rap, check out Saul Williams.
  16. Scraped idea for the new X-men movie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzrWNH3i5i0...rtoon%20episode
  17. Of all the new cast, I'm most excited about seeing Juggernaut. I used to watch that campy Saturday morning cartoon X-men tv show over a decade ago and I remember a show with him fighting. Wow, I might actually go see this movie, I havent done that in soo long.
  18. Boring night tonight, Tomorrow though I will be seeing CygnusX1Bk-2's Rush Tribute band Trilogy in Concord, CA.
  19. That guy was always my favorite villain, I would like to see how his character plays out in this movie. Now they only need to introduce Remy LeBeau into the movies. Maybe make one final X-Men with Apocolypse or something.
  20. Is that Juggernaut I am seeing in the commercials?? I might have to break my streak of not having seen any movie in the theatres since Return Of The King for this one.
  21. QUOTE (madra sneachta @ May 11 2006, 01:44 PM) Maximo Park - A Certain Trigger Nice choice there, I've seen em a couple times, very top notch.
  22. QUOTE (Nunavuter @ May 8 2006, 07:48 PM) Yes. But Netflix involves the mail system and all that. And downloading is more convenient, especially if the store closed at 11 PM and you are bored at 2 AM and you could just grab a movie immediately. The pricing just has to find its right level. That would be the case if you had a lightning fast internet connection. Most movies are in the hundreds of mb range and would take hours to dl im betting, unless you are connected with an insanely fast internet provider.
  23. QUOTE (kazzman @ May 5 2006, 02:33 PM) I'm completely addicted to As I Am, Panic Attack and The Root of All Evil. I take back everything I said about DT in the past. Call me a hippocrite or a traitor if you like, but I'm really digging these guys now. Theres something I never thought I would hear..... I may take my umbrella to work tomorrow, dont want any pig droppings landing on my head.
  24. And bought the 3rd Loop!Station cd at thier show opening for the Secret Machines last night. Now just to find a copy of the second, which they were sold out of.
