Re: questioning Rummy

In the reporting I saw the military was doing all it could to remedy the armor problem, but they can't make the stuff fast enough. PC It's just a pity that invading Iraq was such a an urgent necessity. If Iraq hadn't been such an "imminent threat", they could have waited until they had sufficient e...

Re: The Dollar Meltdown

Personally from my Euro-base in Dublin, Ireland, it's a godsend. I'm coming over to your guys in March to buy all your recording gear with my valuable, valuable Euros.

Re: 99.8% of all FCC complaints come from one activist group

It just goes to show you, something that conservatives and right-wingers in general have known for years, all you have to do is make noise and you can get your way. All these right-wing groups with names like "Concerned Parents against Gangsta Rap" or whatever. If they shout loud enough it seems li...

Re: Colors and Moods

I read someting about this in conjunction with the election conventions and the colours used. But it differenciated between men and women. Something along the lines of, red is alarmist to men but something positive to women. But then we men dig blue, whereas the ladies don't for X reason. Seemed lik...

Re: The meaning behind your band/name

My current band is Capratone. An ex-member came up with it while in Ecstacy in a techno club in Dusseldorf. He can offer no further insight, which is unsurprising really.

Re: Explain your User Name

A Pavement song. Sorry. I used to use "RKelly" as a username cause well......that's my name and everyone was amused by the R&B artist connection, but I don't really wanna be associated with someone accused of having sex with minors (also I believe he peed on a couple of them). Maybe I'll change back...

i'm in columbus ohio, of all places, for the next few days. are there any good record stores out here? as in, places that sell vinyl? if not, maybe i should go do some vote-counting. Try the dumpsters behind the State Republican Party headquarters. You should find some ballots from predominantly bl...

Re: brian wilson's smile on vinyl!

the bassist in my sister's old band was telling me about "Smile" last nite. i think i'm going to give it a listen. on vinyl would be even better! are you sure it was recorded on pro-tools? no chance it was done on 2-inch just like the old days? No chance whatsoever. And if that disappoints you, I'd...
