I'll be waiting for those uploads
I think I was on Streets and whatever was the very first song ever done.

And I'd like to practise, but 1. I'm lazy, 2. I suck, 3. I'm lazy, and 4. I can't actually tune a guitar.

I'll at least borrow Ali's tuner before we butcher October, though!

Well let's just say practice makes perfect, so if you'll finally start to practise, you'll probably get better, right?

I'm off again, almost dinner time here and still have a couple of chores to do! Enjoy your evening/night (or what's left of it)

No, I haven't downloaded it yet, I think I might get around to that right now, as I'm putting stuff on my iPod.
I've never liked rap, at least nothing I've heard on the radio, but I'm aware that's meant to be generally pretty shit as far as rap goes. And I'm not going to go and say "rap = crap lawlz", because anybody who writes off an entire genre is just being absurd (though I can quite understand when people entirely write off country). Plus, I'll admit that nu-metal - which is the bane of the metal community - has kind of poisoned the well for me a bit.

Will be interesting to see what you think. It's nothing like Bittersweet Symphony.

I can dream!

Actually, I can play 11 O'clock Tick Tock, An Cat Dubh, and New Year's Day with some competence, so I suppose there is hope for me yet.

Have a good one!

Pretty good, thanks. Took me forever to fall asleep last night, so I'm tired.

Screwtape, just to answer a few things from last night, because I'm sure you'll check in, whether it's as you or as a guest.

I have stood up for you. In different ways. You'll have to search back through the superthreads to find exact posts, but they are there.

Phanan, who is one of your prog buddies and takes your music advice to heart every time? I am.
I'm not sure exactly what your point is with this post. I've never had any "wrath" towards you, I've never said you were a bad guy (just the opposite, in fact - including last night), and I've never held anything against you. I don't even know you.

I like talking about music with you, and I hope we can continue to do so in the future.

And I'm still counting on your participation in Retro Island. I think you'll enjoy it.

I'm thinking I should get my sleeping habits back to something approaching normality. It's nearly 2am and this feels quite early.

Also, REM's Fall On Me is fucking incredible. Why did I not get Life's Rich Pageant earlier?

You've never heard Fall On Me before? I would have thought you would have even without hearing the album, as it was the big single.

That's one of my favorite REM albums. Possibly my favorite, but it depends on the day. The only song I don't care for is "Just a Touch," but there's so much awesomeness to make up for it.

Yeah, most mainstream rap is pretty terrible, and obviously gives the genre a bad reputation. The negativity towards rap from so many people is astounding! Actually, I feel the same way about country. If you look at recent country, well yeah, it's absolutely awful - but back in the roots there was a lot of really good stuff, some of the best music I've ever heard. Appalachian musicians before Johnny Cash was even born, for example.

Nu-metal is filth. Nobody in the world should like nu-metal, it's the bane of all music, not just metal. That's probably the only genre where NOTHING is good.

Heh, I'm glad to hear that. Yeah, I'll get going to that right now.
