Re: Traffik Island - Possible sample of Dave's version of "The Bed"?

There's no credits for any of the samples used, but it is clearly full of samples, and I think you're right about that one.

The music is ok... a bit boring / bland.

Re: The Covers thread

Gorgeous Radiohead cover. :heart: JKPaA3p3bJU The piano makes it sound almost too close to a Paul McCartney song. But when Arlo's voice comes in, it really pops -- like, I think they work better together than Tegan and Sara. Phoebe's voice is almost too pure for that song. It gives it an almost iro...

Re: Donald Trump running for President.

b) In all total, I have a bet with Hype for $60 for a book from Amazon of one's choice, for: 1) Flat out Biden electoral win, or 2) 46+ state electoral and +55% pop vote for Trump. Also a couple avatar swaps here for a month. Do I really think Trump will get 45+ states, hmmmm....maybe, maybe not. I...

Re: New Perry Farrell's track: "Rock On" (T. Rex)

It's just softened too much. It needs an edge in the vocal and something sharper in the guitar tone (and I think there's piano in the background that should be further forward in the mix). It feels too lethargic.

Re: The Smashing Pumpkins

Yeah. I don't understand the Smashing Pumpkins' turn to gothy dance-pop for the past few years. And yet Billy's solo music has been amazing.

Re: The worst attraction in every state

The worst attraction in the world is Magnetic Hill in Moncton, New Brunswick. Not only is it in Moncton, which is the shittiest shithole in the shittiest province in Canada, but it's literally just a hill that people drive to and then put their cars in neutral and coast down forwards or backwards.

Re: Now Watching...

I love Trailer Park Boys. In fact, I watched their 12 seasons in a row last year. It's bizarre comedy, like a mockumentary with lots of sarcasm and disasters going on. First 2 or 3 chapters are slow burners, but then it gets going! They are from Canada. I suggest you watch the original series on Ne...

Re: Then new TOOL song

I think Undertow is my ultimate fav, but Opiate is the one that I play the most. TOOL is one of those bands from that era that I find it hard to go back to. Like RATM. They're not timeless, despite how incredible they are. They suit a very specific mood and time and it's difficult to enjoy them outs...

Re: date/location on this early JA photo?

great photo, just curious as when, ideas? :wave: ja-01.jpg Those green gloves are in some other photos. Dave and Stephen are in the band, so it's after the other guys left. But pretty early days. 1986. Total shot in the dark because I obviously know nothing about LA venues, but I'd say Raji's. They...

Yes. We all read/heard about those articles/news stories at the time.

One theory that looks to have been disproved is that warm Summer temps would burn out the virus. That hasn't happened. That was never a theory.

Re: Perry Farrell on 80s Hard Rock Hit

Well, yeah, it’s not like the legend has anything left to it these days. It’s two awesome albums from 30 years ago and a couple of weird things they did after. The rest is worthless.
