    FS: SVS 20-39CS+, Crown CE-1000 (Philly Area)

    Nathan, So long as I did my reverse zip code lookup correctly I have family in your area. Nice place. Unfortunately, you are number two on the list for people interested but needing the sub/amp to be shipped. I would like to attempt to sell them locally first in the next week or so just to...

    FS: SVS 20-39CS+, Crown CE-1000 (Philly Area)

    This thread hurts, but its been two years since I have actually been able to use my sub and it looks like its going to be a while before I have a chance to use it again on a regular basis so its best that it goes to someone who can make use of it. First the history, as best as I can piece...

    What's the point to a 'hidden track'?

    cracker's kerosene hat had an even more annoying version of of the 85+ tracks of silence then a bonus song, they actually set it up so the bonus tracks were something like 69, 79, and 98 (those are probably wrong, its been a long time since i actually listened to the cd) seperated by 3 second...

    The New David Cross

    i "had a chance to hear it" about a month ago. i really really like it. in fact, i will be purchasing it this weekend. by far the best parts is the bonus track where he relates a story about that dude from creed. have you seen his DVD "let america laugh" i got it for my birthday and its...

    Anyone heard of Something Corporate? (alternative band)

    i dont think you can have a more appropriate name for this corporate "emopoppunk" garbage.

    Opinions of my collection

    overall too much radio/mtv influence there i think. however, i am a fan of seeing the old 97s in there (among other things). they made me realize i enjoyed alt-country.

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    theres a local record store i tend to buy stuff from. its small and their selection is spread over punk/rock/metal/hiphop, but they will always order stuff for me. also there are a bunch of hiphop oriented sites that i support: www.thegiantpeach.com www.sandboxautomatic.com

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    if you want the most abstract of hiphop, then i must suggest anything that Dose One has been involved with. in fact, i dont even know if i would actually call it hiphop. some albums to look for: Dose One & Boom Bip - Circle Dose One - Hemispheres Dose One - Slowdeath Greenthink -...

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    i dont know if i would put akrobatik on a list yet. internet mcs is a hilarious song, to be sure. and some of his other stuff is good as well. but i just didnt feel Balance when i listened to it, though i will give it another listen to just make sure. Mr. lif is pretty sweet though...

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    ganster rap is so mid90s. if you are going to attack a music style you dont like, you might at least want to make the insult current.

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    i knew when making my list that ludacris was the weakest link on the list, but i really think that he is pigeonholed due to his style, a lot like how a lot of people dismissed tupac and biggie as ganster rappers when they were alive. certainly he is from Atlanta and by listening to the beat of...

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    haha, i almost put kool keith in my list, for this album alone, but i wanted to base it off stuff that was done in the last five years. ps. i love almost everything that dan the automator has ever put out.

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    ok, here are my rules for my list. A) must have put out a cd in the last 5 years. B) no specific numbering C) is heavily biased by what i have listened to. meaning that there may be MCs out there that belong on the list but i dont know because i havent sat down and listened to them enough...

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    are we talking pure lyrical talent? or does there have to be some element of commercial viability? i think i can make up a list that rivals it with respect to pure lyrical talent. however, most of who you named are going to go down in history as some of the best, no matter how long rap lasts...

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    yo! that madvillain album is awesome. well i havent had a chance to sit down and really listen to the lyrical content, but the beats are _solid_ and the lyrics flow really well with it

    Music sharing doesn't kill CD sales, study says

    financial incentive seems like the worst possible motivation for "creating" ANYTHING. in fact, id be willing to say that EVERTYHING created for the sake of financial reasons sucks. i could very well be proved wrong very quickly, but i am going to make this a hypothesis and see if anyone can...

    Rap is 25, and its best days are past?

    anything that the author said about rap music today can be said about all pop music, which makes sense since he (was it a he? i dont remember) only talked about mtv/clearchannel rap.

    Music sharing doesn't kill CD sales, study says

    if anyone believes that someone other than the companies themselves are responsible for the "HUGE COSTS" associated with making the shit that is put out today they are sorely mistaken. [edit, i probably should expand on this point, but i dont have time right now. ill come back later. needless to...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    this has definitely become a semantics/terminology debate, but: didnt brian wilson also sing? i would be willing to consider voiceboxes instruments and so singers are musicians, but its not a huge deal. as for someone who is just taking the arranging the sounds, i would call them an artist...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    first, i admitted that i was wrong about symphonies/concert bands, etc. it was an example to attempt to illustrate what i was trying to say, but it was a bad example. now... you are playing music, not making it. and it certainly is artistry, its just someone else's (ie. other than the person...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    well then i stand corrected on symphonies. i certainly dont want to limit the scope of creativity.

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    well i did say i didnt know how they worked. however, when the symphony is playing a particular piece the musicians are just playing whats given to them, there isnt much room for improv is there? thats what i mean about being a technician. not that all of those musicians _couldnt_ create music...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    they are certainly musicians*. are they artists? not necessarily. something tells me that most people who are in the london symphony orchestra studied music theory and probably are artists, though perhaps within their duties as members of the london symphony. of course, im not 100% familar with...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    a pure musician, using mark alan's definition, as in someone who only plays the instrument, in opposition to someone who is involved with the creative process of writing music. a technician is someone who just follows a procedue (in this case sheet music) without necessarily understanding why...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    i dont think we are talking of the same thing? rap music is only part lyrics (which by the way most rappers do write themselves), and the other part is the beat. not every lyricist is a producer as well, but someone made the music. in that case where someone made the music and someone wrote the...

    The younger generation...is there any hope

    hey dudes, i listen to both hiphop and metal (of all sorts, including grind, well at least the grind bands that arent so fast that i cant make out anything), and both can be as much as anything else. at one point i was going to make a long post to the guy who thought that drum machines and...
