    I try not to read too much press on music...but I might check Uncut out...sounds like it might be good..I just live in the middle of nowhere, so I don't get a lot of that stuff. I live down in So.Cent. Okla....rural wasteland.

    I used to read a lot more press than I do now. i still enjoy Uncut magazine from time to time; long, intelligent interviews with artists that matter and a nice focus on the history of rock as opposed to a recency fixation.

    I only ask because I knew several answers (like the Whale album) from ads in various British magazines or (in the case of, say, Soft Cell), a particularly excited critic reviewing a English-only rerelease.

    Fun game.

    Shalom, y'all!

    I'm sorry #22 is incorrect.

  • Name the Group/Artist From the Album   14 years 47 weeks ago

    Good job man....most were correct
    #31 was close
    #32 was close
    #45 not the one i'm looking for(I forgot about Juliana Hatfield though)
    #53 I am looking for sunny day real estate
    #59 not the one i'm looking for
    #61 Breeders...
    I don't read a lot of music press, I hate reading press. I just listen to a lot of music.

  • My Favorite Songs(tried to keep it to one song per band)   14 years 47 weeks ago

    We definitely agree on Pride and Drain You...interesting list

  • Name the Group/Artist From the Album   14 years 47 weeks ago

    I'm going to take a wild guess here and say you, like myself, read alot of British press. Perhaps even Uncut magazine? Or Select? Q? Mojo?

    Am I correct? Only curious...

    Shalom, y'all!

  • 0035: David Bowie's Best Songs   14 years 47 weeks ago

    Great songs. Ashes to Ashes was on this list but replaced at the last second. I'm still trying to find a space for Aladdin Sand, a great non-single album track.

    Shalom, y'all!

  • Top 20 Songs of the Eighties   14 years 47 weeks ago

    No problem..my plaesure. Actually it is a great song, but it's like the Free Bird of the 80's Retro Genre...It is so difficult to make a list like this, because there were so many "singles" if you know what I mean-one hit wonders that were absolutely fabulous....One could go on and on, huh?

  • Name the Group/Artist From the Album   14 years 47 weeks ago

    No, I'm a late twenties slacker to the bone. BTW, good job man.

  • Name the Group/Artist From the Album   14 years 47 weeks ago

    Good job...keep trying. You seem pretty knowledgeable on the prominent genre.

    I was referring to snoozer's first post

  • 0001. CDs You Really Should Hear   14 years 47 weeks ago

    Yeah I did that with a couple friends at a party one time, it was pretty crazy to say the least. The music isn't totally in synch but its certainly worth trying.

  • Name the Group/Artist From the Album   14 years 47 weeks ago

  • Movie Club (aka Movie Discussion Group) Anyone!   14 years 47 weeks ago

    I'm definitely up for it!

  • Movie Club (aka Movie Discussion Group) Anyone!   14 years 47 weeks ago

    yeah, i don't want to go too overboard and force people out of their groove who might otherwise participate. i'll just wait and see how many people are interested and from there we can see what the optimal viewing period is for a movie.

    once we have that nailed down all participants can nominate movies and we'll vote and go from there. obviously we want to stick with movies that everyone can see.

    so no movies like Forbidden Zone. BTW has anyone seen that besides me? that movie is a trip.

  • top 10 directors ever   14 years 47 weeks ago

    Liquid Sky is a horrible movie that steals from many other directors.

  • The Ultimate Guide to R.E.M.   14 years 47 weeks ago

    Green, Lifes Rich Pageant and Document are my personal favorites. Maybe you should tell me why you didnt give Green a maximum rating. It would ease my suffering.
