    I am a big Floyd fan. Best 3 Floyd LP's for me = Animals, Atom Heart Mother and Saucerful of Secrets. Prefer early Floyd pre Dark Side of Moon era to their latter period, Animals (1977) being the exception to this.

    U2 suck ass, only liked Joshua Tree.

    Bruce Springsteen has two really good songs - the ghost of Tom Joad, and that other which is about going down to the river (never remember the name of this song). Both songs were excellent. The guy deserves some respect for these two classy tunes, and his acoustic stuff where he plays harmonica reminds me of Neil Young a bit (it was him unplugged I think and remember watching it - wish I taped it).

    The flower was also a pen... wish I'd realized that before I put it in my pocket beside my white PS.

    At the risk of turning this into ARTforum, I saw this. It looked legit, it was framed well (at one point before the framed started getting nicked up), and it was only $15. Anyone know anything about how to authenticate this? I'll probably take it to somebody tomorrow.

    And these sweet Aldens, which are way too big for me:

    Animals is fine. Some nice jams and good Gilmore stuff. Most people dismiss/dislike Final Cut. I can see why, but I stand by it; there's some decent music in there, if you can get through all the Waters selfi-indulgence and uber-political-inside-Cricket.

    I'll be the first to admit my tastes are. On the same playlist mix, I have Dead Can Dance, Miles Davis, Goldfrapp, Shiny Toy Guns, Greenday, Lady Gaga, Floyd, The Doors, Moana and the Moa Hunters, Ashley MacIsaac, Robert Miles, Oakenfold, Robert Bennett, Peter Gabriel, "A Fifth of Bethoven" and yes, pre-Achtung U2 (among others, equally as eclectic). So you tell me why I can't tolerate the Boss, much of the Stones, nearly all of the Beatles' solo/post breakup stuff, or most rap that isn't House of Pain or Cyprus Hill.

    Like I said, bring your hate. I can handle it.

    Screw you guys, Eminem is one of the few rappers able to convey emotion beyond I'm angry, I'm rich, or I'm horny...

    yet most of his shit that people laud is still the "i'm angry" type.


    and what mexicutioner said, even if that's just barely scratching the surface...no accounting for good taste, sir!

    No worries, I'm not excluding other rappers! (Still and all, most of those aren't exactly contemporary :laugh: )

    Anything REM on IRS records is classic. I think they felt bad for leaving the Indy label and that's when they went all PC when they released Green.

    Y'all are now blocked from my eBay auctions and on my shit list. :plain:


    There certainly is.
    To summarize, ancient madder, TRUE ancient madder pieces have a very distinct hand to them - a very chalky and unmistakable feel.
