Sipping Absinthe ;) Listenin' to Music

Recommended Posts

Pink Floyd has been my comfort food of music for years.

 

Same music just a different system. Goes well with unfamiliar absinthe.

 

Balance!

The Ducky Boys CD keeps disappearing. The 17 year old punk is trying to steal my music! I guess I better make that order for a few more of their CDs. Greyboy, you made stocking stuffers a little easier this year. :cheers:

You're welcome.

That is one of my favorite albums over the last couple years.

I just got my hands on the Dustin Kensrue cd that comes out in January and it's really REALLY good! It's a total departure from his main band Thrice which is a pretty hard band.

The whole thing is pretty much like that. I like it, its a pretty big departure from Thrice, but its still really good.

 

 

HUGE departure. Gotta love those "back to my rock n roll roots" records.

 

Did I just date myself, saying "records"?

AD, I absolutely loooooove the song Dare by Gorillaz. I wonder why it wasn't released as a single.

That's an impressive list.... I actually know about 60% of the bands there. I'm wondering, did you cut and paste or is this a case of too much time on your hands :) That is a lot of typing, I would not have had the patience.

 

Last night I was listening to some Tower of Power and Funkadelic. Try that with your absinthe..... :guitar:

I just copied and pasted the playlist from I Tunes. Actually, the mix grew, and is now 124 songs long. My dad is going to get a nice package of cd's and absinthe samples in the mail next week. He needs something to drink while listening to the music.

Nice list Alyssa! I took some time to make a 'Green Hour' soundtrack to listen to as I sip away. In ended up being about 3.5 hours long. Looks like I just need to drink more absinthe!

AD, I didn't know you were a DJ. Or did I? Anypoop, I'd love to hear your remixes of that song.

 

Lister, I'm so honored to meet anothet TOP fan. What's your favorite song of theirs? I'm partial to What Is Hip?. Their horn section rocks! :headbang:

I actually just started working a "Real" job in this past year. But I did spend several years working as a DJ in Mexico and in the Netherlands. Good times... I could probobly Gmail you a mix later tonight, if you are interested.

Peter Hammill took the top of my head off tonight! Just an absolutely phenomenal set of music. His violinist tonight, Stewart Gordon, I believe he said, had the sweetest touch filling the sound. Mind-binding lyrics. Mind-bending delivery. And a whole lotta fun.

 

Of course, having dinner and drinks and walking a bit through the city before the show I couldn't help thinking to myself: Absinth, absinth everywhere and not a drop worth drinking. But I'm calming my nerves with something decent now.

jcbphd -- trying to pinpoint a favorite song of theirs is tough for me. They can definitely put the groove on.. B) I enjoy just about everything I've heard from them but I am pretty partial to the albums East Bay Grease and Urban Renewal. Plus I grew up near Oakland so I knew about them when they were playing the local clubs around here. Actually they kind of still do..... only now instead of a bunch of high school kids its a bunch sophisticated old farts. :wheelchair:
