I've been listening to a lot of old time Bluegrass lately.  Some of those tunes can be squeezed like an orange to get liquid adrenalin.  Plus the craftsmanship is sometimes spectacular.

Been listening to several of the tracks from Jarhead the last couple days. They put some good music in that movie.

How is that movie?  Down on the military?  I Don't care to see a hollywood hit piece, especially on the Corps.

I don't think it was down on the military. Was reasonably true to Swofford's memoirs from the Gulf War, though it would've been nice if it had more of the action he saw. It skimped on the action and was a bit anti-climactic, but I mean, so were his experiences, and the Gulf War itself for that matter. Not too much happens in 4 days. Some folks hated it, but I liked it and I'm pretty pro-military, so... there it is. Good visuals, everybody's acting was outstanding, and the sound was great too. Script may have been a little wanting, but nobody's perfect.

Certainly one effin hell of a lot better than the attempt to moviefy Doom. ;)

"Who's Next" - The Who

Greatest Album ever... no point in listening to anything else... maybe Tommy...

If it's not the who... it's crap... (ok, maybe if it's not the who, pink floyd, phish, led zeppelin, tool, the doors, ac/dc, Steve Miller band or CCR...)
In Soviet Russia, signature read you!

Oh man, I just snagged my Who's Next CD that I digitized from my old old LP and have it playing in my Mac right now.  This music is from my "golden years" of hippiedom in the late 70's.  The first time I played it in iTunes with the visualizer running an inch from the end of my nose I almost cried for my lost, wasted youth.  I have several Doors albums too, I went to one of their concerts in San Diego, had wire framed glasses like they did (wearing those frames in that pic).  Anything by Steve Miller or Credence is pure gold.

LordViking, if you ever become orphaned I'll adopt you... son.  Of course on the condition I can listen to your records... and er, I get them if you mysteriously die.

Hey get a load of the pic I linked to by the way.  If it had better resolution you could see all the Classic Hippy popsnizzle scattered around me.  There is a guitar, a Cheops pyramid rack, a pic of some guru I went to India to see, a Chinese zodiac, an acupuncture chart, my all I could afford to run 7 watt light bulb in the wall unit, a book of Psi Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain, a high frequency electrical generator for Kerlian photography, and get a load of that psychedelic-hermit-cosmological-earth-muffin-yoink tie died shirt I'm wearing.  All this in a tiny 2 room cabin in the forest high in the mountains.

Which would explain why I'm perfectly healthy and still as mentally fit as I ever was as a moderate to light drinker, while a good friend and the only weed smoker I've ever known personally for an extended period of time has mentally deteriorated from a highly intelligent honors student to a slow-in-the-head, continually spaced out moron over the seven years I've known him. Go weed! :happy:
