My friend who introduces me to bands like this likes to think himself a viking. He's got the long hair, the huge braided beard, the nose ring that goes through the centre of his nose, hugely gauged ear-piercings. He's a very large man. And what does this viking do for a living? He is in management for a large-chain retail store. And he eats babies.

Whoops, that's the guy I meant.

Yeah, I do that too. U2 to Explosions In The Sky to Porcupine Tree to Agalloch to Crowded House ...

Also, the part around about 9:00 in Pale Companion is my favourite part. The long clean vocals verse. "It washed away in a tide of longing ..."

Is your friend Liam, by any chance?

No, I suppose not, Liam works for some small elitist snob record store. Guess it's Liam's US clone.

Do it! In return, I'll share the absolute shocker I know.

Or Englishified French word. Either way.
See, this is another reason why English is rockin'. The diversity.

Probably my favourite word is 'subjugate'. It suits its content. Just pronouncing it makes you feel like you're subjugating the syllables and making them do what you want because you've got all the power.

I'm at 13 minutes. I think my musical expanse is wider than yours, though. But everyone things that about themselves. But I like all the new-new-wave stuff. And believe you me, there is a ton of it. Oh, and all the Brit-pop garage stuff. And some metal, when done tastefully.

I think you might really like a band called Soundtrack of Our Lives, though they may be a little teensy bit too pop for your taste.

They sound like they'd have a good time bowling together, though. Bowling with baby-heads.

I was sharing it with Kate and she thought it tasted normal. Who knows!

I tried some Nestle stuff in the US and it tasted fine, pretty much like down here. As far as mass-produced go, I'll stick behind Cadbury.

Phoenetically it is. I was going by phoenetics. Phail isn't a word when you spell it that way. But if you said it, it would be a word, because we'd imagine it with an "f". Schmail, however, fails on all levels. Because it's not even a word when you say it.

I think my tastes in general are very wide. I'll listen to almost any style. But my loves are much more narrow. I can't quite define what it is that makes me absolutely love something besides the fact that the one thing they all have in common is that they're atmospheric in some way or another.

I've heard OF that band, I believe they even opened for U2 in 2005 at a few gigs, but I haven't listened to them. I'll track them down. Pop isn't a bad thing when it's done well, anyway. See: Crowded House.

You asked for it!


A guy is walking down the street one day... he sees another guy walking towards him with a cucumber in his ear.
The first guy stops the second guy and says, "Excuse me, but you have a cucumber in your ear."
The second guy stops and says "Sorry, I can't hear you. I have a cucumber in my ear."



The best thing about this joke is watching people's reactions when they hear it. It's a bit pointless online, I guess.

Oh, you missed that part of the thread. Kate is my American ex-girlfriend who now lives here in Australia and we're still good friends and go to the same university.

And to avoid confusion, Khan is Katie.

You made fun of me for liking Arctic Monkeys.
