Have you heard Opeth's song Bleak? That's the song that eased me into death vocals. Sure, the first few minutes are just chugging guitars and Akerfeldt growling, but then it transitions into beautiful clean harmonies between Akerfeldt and Steven Wilson. And, of course, there's the acoustic Damnation album which has no growls at all - nor any metal, besides perhaps an atmosphere inherent to all their albums.
I just listened to the song Old Year for whatever reason and was very impressed. Unusual melody crossed with an enveloping atmosphere.

Steven Wilson He saves this song.

You know what artist I really hate? Mars Volta. Fuck them.

OK, short reply territory here, where I attempt to avoid my usual rambling nature. It's 4am and I need to sleep.

LMP, yeah, once I've slept I'd enjoy doing a running diary of that, though I might need someone to e-mail me those single mixes. If I do have MP3s of them, I'm fucked if I know where. I own both singles, but I've kept them mint for no apparent reason.

I love that icon. Mind if I save it?

Aha, I see. I love that song quite a lot (mostly for the lyrics as it's helped me through some rough times.) and I did enjoy seeing the live versions of it even though I like the studio version a whole lot better. The song itself is just special to me, basically.
Is it bad that took me a min to figure out what TTTYAATW meant? (Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World.) I am so bad with stuff like that.

Thanks! I hope so too. I am considering going with that company that doesn't require phone or cable as in the long run (since a home phone isn't necessary what with all the cell phones around here...) that it would be a lot cheaper (even if it is pricey just for internet itself) because dial up is way too much of a pain for my liking. A lot of sites take along time to load (for example, the vitamin water site.) or when a lot of pics (or a video) are loading, IMs in any messenger, be it AIM, Yahoo or MSN send and receive rather delayed or not at all while something is loading (or downloading) and I can't use more than one web page loading at a time. High speed would be a lot better and easier for me, especially in icon posting since I tend to post upwards of 40 at one time.

That would be really cool! I'd love to see pictures from that.
I was Elevation Bono once for halloween but I dunno that I'd go to a concert all done up like that!
Yeah, sure, feel free to save it.

Hah, it seems the discussion here's illustrating that I'm one of the few people who knows song names through acronyms.

Yeah, I remember how bloody aggravating dialup was from my time on it (I occasionally use it nowadays; I have free back-up dialup if my DSL goes down), and it seems websites are increasingly being designed with too much junk that would be a nightmare for dialup users. I find it annoying enough myself! And personally, I only still have a landline so I can get DSL. I'd probably have ditched it otherwise, but landline + DSL works out better for me than cable.

Anyway, I better go to bed. Have a good one everybody!

That's a great alternate cut, too. We kept some of the same sequencing. I haven't heard "Holy Joe" in ages.

I'm working on a "Double album" cut of The Joshua Tree with "Desert of Our Love" and "Rise Up."

Holy Joe has horrible lyrics, but it's a cracking tune.

Cool. I think this version is a little too top-heavy when it comes to rocking the fuck out though.

I had a The Unforgettable Fire tracklist that was about thirteen songs long, but I can't remember where I wrote it.

Other than finding all of your individual grades and converting it that way, I have no clue.

I can't even find the normal weighting scale. I keep getting referred to college grades.

"...convert to a 4.0 scale" - College Discussion

This page is quite helpful.
