Re: MSPaint fun

You have an impressive level of patience, but your actual artistic ability leaves something to be desired. Learn more about lighting and color theory. You're not really accomplishing much by using so many extraneous colors. The contrast between the sharp, aliased lines and the smooth gradients is p...

Re: Awesome bands that nobody's heard of

Yeah, she recruited two underground drummers for Volta - Brian Chippendale and Chris Corsano. She wound up using Chippendale for one song, and Corsano for the rest of the album, and for live performances. (Corsano is VERY good, if you're not familiar with him. He's on the jazzy end of the noise-roc...

Re: Awesome bands that nobody's heard of

Yea. Particularly fun live, of course. One of the drummer's side projects was what got me interested in current underground music. (I was a snotty-nosed-little-punk in the early 80s, then went through a LONG Stooges/Sabbath/MC5/Cooper/Dolls/etc period, and finally woke up and started listening to n...

Re: Nihilism/Existentialism - the Philosophical Loop

I must agree with the original poster in the main, you are absolutely correct, but what is lacking in your argument and what was lacking in mine towards 'leaving it all and just enjoying yourself' until recent philosophizing is necessity. It is necessary, however much we may not want it to be so, th...

Re: (Post Your) Incredible Poems (Here!)

A poem I started recently about my opinions on modern faith. To rely on the splendor of a tale Lost to those who know, and found by creatures; Monsters that can't see past their believings And trust in an almighty they can't see Is to sweetly affirm that we can't care; That we keep our faith for the...

Re: Awesome bands that nobody's heard of

Do Death From Above 1979 and The Moldy Peaches count? I would say so. I am constantly converting people to DFA on a daily basis. It's a fine shame that they split so abruptly. For me, I would have to recommend Project, a jazz band featuring that man who played 'Inspector Gadget' on the flute. Remem...

Re: FREEZEPOP, I MEAN GOD DAMN:

I'm afraid that I was quite unforgiving in my desire to cast them asunder after I heard their 'Sprite' song. I was entirely underwhelmed and decided to stop my exploration of Freezepop after just one track, which I now consider a blunder on my part. If anyone could recommend perhaps 2 or 3 of their ...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hello, I'm new to this board, although it is not my first and I am familiar with the general etiquette. As such, if you encounter me again hereabouts, which I do so hope comes to pass as I do love you so very dearly, I promise to behave in a manner befitting an Englishman and a gentleman, with as li...
