Acid 6.0. If they make it for Mac then don't use any earlier version. 6.0 is significant as far as features that they finally added.



Excellent! I'm on it. Thanx.

Disturbed- "Land of Confusion"

Yeah, the Genesis version sucks goat butt. I feel that the song speaks volumes though.

Same thing for the song "Shout" from Tears for Fears. Disturbed has a way of making sucky things not so sucky.

Perhaps they should cover some Lenny Kravitz tunes. Nah, lets just let Kravitz suck, all by himself.

Actually, I do wear glasses (not coke bottle), I have straight hair, don't smoke, I like whisky straight up, and I'm from Massachusetts so I say "wicked" a lot, but it sounds like "wickid," when I say it because of my Boston accent.

Today it's:
Helium Heels by Darker My Love

Also still digging LSD and the search for God.

Don't know how many of you are into the Podcast world, and I don't know how many of you are freaks for James Brown like I am, but this kicks ass...

http://www.digitalpodcast.com/detail.php?id=310

These JB tribute shows are so good. It's all I listened to all weekend.

P.S. Does anyone know how the hell to drop an .xml file into a podcast puller downer thing? I'm listening to these shows via Winamp for now and recording them in real time. I'd love to be able to just download the damn things like everyone else.

Loper,

I use Itunes for all my podcast adventures. Apparently, Winamp is pretty squirrely with podcasts.

Today's favorites:

Lost In The Air - Cave In
Joy Opposites - Cave In
Burning Too - Fugazi

Well, you're right, Winamp doesn't deal with em at all, I was just listening to a stream of the show on Winamp, and recording it with other software. I have a podcast puller, for a lack of better description called Juice and don't quite have the total hang of it yet. Is the .xml file what I drop into Juice as a subscription of some kind?

I'm with Hayseed. Get iTunes, then go to preferences and subscribe to your podcasts from there. It's great. I get a new live show from KEXP every couple days, and don't evene have to think about it. It's just there.

Question. What do you do when an .xml file pops up instead of the typical url code for the rss feed?

So far this morning....

"Salvation," by Voyager One.

I tried a few podcasts with iTunes a while back. Wasn't very impressed with the sound quality, so never bothered again. Could have just been the source material, oh well.

Brooks, in my experience the quality will vary from podcast to podcast. You never know what you'll run into really. I messed around within iTunes quite a bit last night and found a few things I liked a lot and subscribed to. In general, I love it. Radio shows by normal people within their basements or whatever. That's how it should be. Fuck the radio.

I'm a tech dinosaur. At one time I thought I was pretty savy, that was the 1980's. I envy you folks at times because you're all in the know zone. Seems like I'm always missing out on something.

I remember a time when my dad would take me to the "record shop" and I would literally get lost in those isles. Time was irrelevant. My hands flipped through hundreds of records and I would almost breakout into a sweat when I found the one I was looking for. Those days are gone. The trill is gone too. Shops are going bankrupt. And yes, there are valid reasons. Now you can get what you want with a few key strokes and never leave your house.

I'm still impressed with the tech minds of today, don't get me wrong. I just miss the "Back In The Day" days. Lament, lament.

Well, for all my *cough* technosavvy *cough*, I just can't get into podcasts, music or otherwise. I do, however, get into the vertigo: shoegaze radio at live365. I listen through iTunes.

Phantom Limb is catchy as hell.

Haven't listened to any music today, yet. I was whistling the track that came in at no 16 on the JJJ hottest 100 though. You can listen to the whole countdown here > http://www.abc.net.au/triplej/hottest100/countdown/# < I bet if you hunt around you might be able to podcast it as well.

So today:
Peter Bjorn and John - Young Folks

careful coz that whistling is addictive.

So far today it's:
"I Don't Care," by LSD and the search for God
I haven't been this addicted to a album/EP in a long time.

On a completely unrelated note, I read on the Autolux myspace page that the new album has been pushed back to this summer. Bummer. I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

James, you are a bad ass. I've meant to ask you, what program are you using to do DVD authoring, and how do you like it?

I don't know what James is using, but I've got DVD Architect that is now I think made by Sony, and it's really easy and seems to work well. I've just only scratched the surface on it.

Clearly though, James is the video guru around here.

Blah guru I am not. :P

Using a program called DVDlab. Its relatively inexpensive compared to other products that do the same thing with the only caveat being that your video/audio must be formatted/edited correctly prior to using this program. It mainly gives you the ability to build custom menus in photoshop then create chapter points to connect everything up.
If you need to do heavy editing etc then this program would not be good for ya.

So in keeping with the thread I'll just list what itunes has on right now...
The receiver - goliath from moe's later burnies.

Love that one; legendary recording. There's another one that he did with similar musicians at the time, called Live Evil, you might like also; maybe you've already heard it, Loper.

Oh yeah. Live Evil sucked up at least a solid year of my life. A buddy of mine just hooked me up with the entire Cellar Door performances which Live Evil was edited out of. That era of Miles to me is some of the best music ever made.

I take it those Cellar Door gigs are bootleg? Hint...hint...like can I get 'em????
Absolutely agree with your assessment. It's interesting that no matter what other things I can listen to and eventually get bored, that never seems to happen with that era of Miles. I also have a deep fondness for his Second Quintet; Tony Williams, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock.

Big Fun and On The Corner are two more good Bitches Brew era albums. I believe they were both taken from the BB sessions. And I must agree, my favorite Miles era is the 2nd quintet also. Albums like Miles Smiles, E.S.P., Nefertiti are amazing, as well as any live material from that period. I think I have more Miles Davis CDs in my collection than any other artist!

Yesterday there was a new infant in my daughters day care, her name is Maggie. So, of course the first thing that popped into my head was - "He carved out 'Maggie sucks,' on the backs of every one."

This morning:

"Harry and Maggie" - Swervedriver

That happens every time I hear that name

Oh yeah, I also dig the Herbie solo albums with Shorter, Carter, Williams, and the amazing Freddie Hubbard on trumpet! Maiden Voyage is an great album. Some days I like Hubbard more than Miles (as far as playing and sound, but Miles is the master composer / arranger). Any of Hubbard's 70's stuff is well worth seeking out - Red Clay, Sky Dive, or Straight Life. I'm just saying ………you guys started it. I'll shut up now.

Ahh, Harry and Maggie. Swervedriver's one true political statement. I love that song.

Yes on the Miles. Big Fun is so crucial to have because it has the tracks from the Brew sessions, but of high importance, it's got Go Ahead John, Ife, and Lonely Fire, of which I believe weren't from the Brew sessions and of course, all kill. On the Corner yes. Fantastic. pre-Electric band...yes. I just had Nefertiti on the other night while cooking. I couldn't pick a fave from that band, but Miles Smiles, or maybe Miles in the Sky might be the one. Water Babies is damn good too and gets kinda overlooked.
