I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/08/04 05:44 AM

anybody listen to any good music lately? pick up any good cds? lets talk music

like, what the fuck...so much good music it seems like in the past couple years. no boybands and lots of good alt-rock

I was diassapointed in the new outkast cd though, I dunno I expected something much different from what I got...whatever though

the new Jay-Z cd though, wow. most of you probably don't have any interest in him, but shit...go out and buy it.

here's something else, anybody notice how all the good music came from the 90's? like shit...bush, nirvana, nin, violent femmes, 311, sublime, rem, rage against the machine, butthole surfers, primative radio gods, public enemy, oasis, even snoop dogg...that's where my memories are

I'm noticing some good shit coming out of Britain too...like I dunno if you guys are into trip-hop but all that shit coming out of Bristol makes me happy (Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba)
even british pop is sounding good, like athlete or grandadbob

I keep trying to burn the postal service cd, cause one of my friends jacked my other copy and it keeps fucking up...it's pissing me off like this shit burns one cd correctly and the next one is fubar

so this is what I recommend now Ray Charles Lamontagne

this guys voice is incredible...I felt like crying

oh, and I'm listening to Depeche Mode - Sweetest Perfection right now...next song in the playlist is Depeche Mode - Little 15 and the song before that was Our Lady Peace - Is Anybody Home

don't act like you have better shit to do either, go ahead and reply

i got all excited when you quoted the violent femmes in the subject.. then you start talking about outkast and jay-z. luckily, you threw the greatest band in the world in there. Depeche Mode. otherwise i would have thought you listened to shitty music only

now, i know everyone says that Evanescence is just "linkin park with a girl singer" but they're not. if you listen to the lyrics they are so fucking awesome. i am actually really starting to love that band.

as for other music: i'm still sticking mainly to my DM and NIN. oh yeah.. Placebo is still a favorite. oh, ya'll should check out Tweaker. it's Chris Vrenna's (from NIN) solo project. it's really good stuff. oh, i guess i do have my guilty pleasure band that i am fully aware of that they suck. i still like 'em though. it's almost embarassing. oh well.
um... Social Distortion is another must have. And the smiths... and OMD...and pretty much any decent 80s music. 80s music is the best! da 80s muzick rulz!

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/11/04 05:17 AM

yes yes placebo is very good....our lady peace-is anybody home is definately an all time favorite. i agree on evanescence's lyrics...they're very good, altho i'm not to fond of the music and the vocals, but i'm always one to look for lyrics rather then sound...but thats just me. i dont know about the 80z music tho....

Hey kids...don't leave Flogging Molly out. Who wouldn't like traditional Irish music mixed with punk? :x

Dido gets the thumbs up

now instead of this turning in to "I like this band" someone needs to go "I just bought the new ____ album and I really thought that _____"

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/11/04 09:21 PM

Dido is good, I like 80's music, Depeche Mode, Oingo Boingo, The Culture Club, Cure, bla bla. Hmm "I just didn't buy these new albums. 3 doors down(going to see them this coming friday) Another 700 Miles(pimp), Moby 18 B Sides+Dvd, Grandaddy - Sumday, Sheryl Crow - C'mon America 2003, No Doubt - Rock Steady(fuck yea), The Very Best of Sheryl Crow, Stagga Lee Presents M.V.P (M.ost V.aluable P.layas), Hatebreed - The Rise of Brutality( hell fuckin yea), Thursday - War all the time(sok), Less Then Jake - anthem, "Weird Al" Yankovic - Poodle Hat, Mest - Maverick(good), Rob Zombie - Past, Present & Future(fly & pimp), Thrice - The Artist in The Ambulance, Sugarcult - Start Static(good), The Ataris - so long, astoria(gooood), Juelz Santana - from me to u(sa'll right) and I really thought that some were pimp, tight, and phat. But some sucked."

I didn't buy them, because they have the "For Promotional Use Only, Sale Or Other Transfer..bla bla bla." On them. Because I got them from a family member who is good with recording ppl. I listen to them on my laptop. I listen to a bunch of different music, everything pretty much, except country, and some pop. Blue Oyster Cult is always good. I like hard lyrics, and smash your head dizzy guitar/drum music(PoD, Linkin Park, Blink182, NiN, Evanescence, RATM, all that.) Hope that works for you Imperial

disgruntled: the go gos piss me off because they just overall suck ass. they are dirty little drunken whores. plus their music sucks. if i'm going to listen to music, it's going to be good stuff. well, with a few exceptions. (my guilty pleasure band that i won't admit to..JC keep your damn mouth shut!) i like music with meaning and feeling. that's why Depeche Mode is my all time favorite.

Shit, you guys missed so many good bands.

Radiohead is basically like one of the greatest bands of all time, they are amazing. Pedro the Lion fucking rules, awesome lyrics and his latest album "Control" is unbelievable. Doves have sick stuff, The Last Broadcast is a solid album. Coldplay is a great band, Jack Johnson and Ben Harper are amazing as well, awesome chill music with really good lyrics and soul. There's no way you could ever leave out The Beatles. Only the greatest band of all time, almost every single one of their albums is mind blowing, The White Album could have been if it was made better, but the songs on it are rad. There's some good hip-hop rihgt now too, Outkast and Missy Elliot are putting out some very good music. The Strokes new album is very very good, too bad Rancid's new album sucks, they've been going downhill, Dropkick Murphy's are rocking right now too though. If you want some awesome jazz, put on John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme", it's a rediculous jazz album. SO much good music, I love it, lol.

Radiohead I've been listening to since I saw the Paranoid Android Video way back when it first aired on MTV, I loved that. Coldplay is good, The Beatles are an all time favorite, Hey Jude, Imagine, All you need is love(doot dodododo), Eleanor Rigby, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band(doodlodododoodlododo, it was 20 years ago today, sgt pepper taught this band to play).

Yea I Liek the Beatles, I liek alot of old music, but I can never remember all the bands, the music video that had the neon skeletons, that was pimp. A google search for that should find it. I like sad songs, deep powerful spiritual songs, or hard fuckin make you dizzy like a orgasm songs(called a eargasm). The Strokes are coo, Coltrane is a favorite of many ppl, dood jazz fuckin owns bro:) I like your style bro, you have good taste.

i feel like such a heel! i forgot to mention Social Distortion! they kick some serious ass. "...but i killed my baby... i killed her with my knife"

oh, i have to take a minute out to trash Radiohead. true, i own the OK Computer album, that one is actually good. i don't totally dispise them or anything, i just think they are way over rated.

oh, and weeve, it seems a few of your other bands suck according to the guys at SA:
coldplay:
http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=1772
The Strokes:
http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=1794


eh..those are all in good fun. the guy is obviously retarded because he makes fun of The Smiths who are actually fantastic. those articles just made me girly giggle so i thought i'd share.

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/12/04 10:43 PM

Right now I'm really loving Modest Mouse, especially The Moon and Antarctica"

Bealuh's new one, Yoko, is excellent. Sort of like Wilco, but louder.

Oh, Inverted World, by The Shins is some excellent music as well.

The stuff Johhny Cash did in his last decade is fucking incredible.

As for some oldies- Nick Drake, The Band, Neil Young, and Velvet Underground are always good starting places.

Time to dissapear again.

ok, since music is such a personal thing, it's pretty dumb to comment but...I HATE RADIOHEAD! They are probably my least favorite band of all time. And on second thought, Weeve, if you mention Rage in the same category as Linkin Park and Blink 182 again I will stab you in the face.

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/13/04 08:30 AM

fleshy, thanks for the site links, I just hate critics. They have the laziest, stupidest, most immoral, and unethical...really fuckin annoying job. They don't deserve the money they make. Rage Against the Machine, Linkin Park, and Blink 182. Try to stab me in the face, I'll grind your eyes out with toothpicks, slow funnel cyanide down your throat, cut your heart out as the cyanide dripping slowly kills you. Just as you die I will remove your heart fully, and shove it up your ass. Trying to stab big ppl(6'8 205), with anything, that are accustom to many martial arts, since youth, know almost every way to kill a person including chemically, is bad.

Especially being that I'm a pacifist, and the only time that changes is when you hurt family or "real close" friends, or when you threaten me physically.(as in do something, it better kill me quick).

O, and RATM, Linkin Park, Blink 182;/ I happen to like Blink 182's songs about fucking, and punkness. I like the hard, pounding loud anger of linkin park, and I love ratm/nin since I was liek 16. I'll liek what I want, when I want, and say what I want. I don't care who hates radiohead either, I still listen to them, hell I play tubthumper once in a while, and that's uber old. Just like I load warren g once in a while:\

People if your gonna down on a band, that makes more then any of us do in out life so far in a month, and bang on anything about them. Try to do what they do, sing, play a instrument, join a band. Then get booed off stage, called names, and asked to take your clothes off. All that, be all you can be, trying to be something your not. Then..and only then you can slam on someone else's shit, by being in their shoes for that miniscule amount of time. Kthx;/

Mornse and Blue know what's up, they mentioned everything I didn't since my focus was on a certain decade.

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/14/04 03:37 AM

oh and weeve, brought up Moby...yeah fuck you if you don't like him. He's bald and he makes me happy.

Deftones are cool as shit too as well as the White Stripes. U2, The Verve, Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Goo Goo Dolls, Bif Naked, and Five For Fighting and up too.

Maybe Blue listens to these guys, but Bell and Sebastian are the shit....oh and Norah Jones, Tracy Chapmen, and John Mayer have incredible voices. I'll probably get some shit for that, but the smart guys know some of the best girls are at his concerts. Please beleive I'm going

Yeah, so I'd explain why I like them...but bleh

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/14/04 04:36 AM

I think Some of Moby's song are ok. Heh to each his/her own.

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/19/04 05:47 AM

Yeah, I forgot to mention Modest Mouse, I love them too. Everyone always disses Radiohead, and say that they suck. Well, they don't, they make good music. They are talented musicians and create VERY original music. Whether you like the music or not is a different issue. Imperial listens to good tunes, I love U2, White Stripes, Velvet Underground, John Mayer and Norah Jones as well.

Shit, forgot to mention I read all those articles on Something Awful, Fleshy. THey are a funny read, but the guy is SO dumb. All he talks about is how he's a "genius" and we're all so dumb. And he makes fun of bands but doesn't even listen to their albums, all the songs he mentioned are all singles, and he even says he doesn't listen to the whole album, so I give him no credit at all, heh.

Re: I'm high as a kite and I just might stop to check you out - 01/19/04 06:56 AM

Yeah, I have Belle and Sebastien's If You're Feeling Sinister. I've heard good things about their newer one, but haven't listened to it yet. Would you recommend it?

I'll also toss Bright Eyes into the list. Voice needs a little polishing, and the lyrics need reined in a bit, but I think that in a few years this kid will be real good.
