    2006 - Albums of the Year

    I was reluctant to do this so soon (at risk of being a bit premature), but seeing that the release schedule for the rest of the year is rather weak, I've decided to start compiling my "top 50 albums of 2006" list. When I'm done, I'll have it posted to my blog, along with several mp3s for each...

    Your Favourite Decade In Music?

    A big question - a whole ten years of music and if you had a choice of only one, which would it be? For me it would be (without a doubt!) the 1980s. It's got it all... You've got the emergence of the stylistic Post-Punk (though this is really a late 70s thing as well) - Gang Of Four, Joy...

    Joy Division Or New Order?

    I've gotten into both of these groups lately and have been debating who I prefer more. This is one of the most extraordinary things I've observed before, in terms of music - the major differences between the two, when they are essentially the same group. Just some background info for those not...

    The Smiths - Geniuses?

    I've been listening to this band for a while, but never did seem to like them much, until I heard "How Soon Is Now?" on TV one night. The next day I stocked my iPod with some of their work, and soon after headed out for my summer vacation in Europe. They really started growing on me, and proved...

    Farewell

    Well, in case you guys notice my absence, just thought I'd let you know I'll be gone until mid-August on summer vacation in Europe. I'm off to visit my family in Italy. I leave tomorrow afternoon and won't be online unless I find an internet cafe or use a cousin's computer. Have a nice...

    Best of 2005

    This is pretty well the first year I've carefully followed the albums being released in any current year, as well as going out and obtaining the albums. The reason for this would be because of my recent "change" in listening to newer, modern albums. I feel it has been a decent year so far, not...

    Doug Gilmour needs your Help!!!

    Over the past six months or so I have expanded my musical tastes. Once "Classic Rock Dan" I now have grown to accept (and like) more artists and genres. I suppose I have become less stubborn (yes enjoilax and sypher, you have finally won..). I've dabbled with rap (Run DMC, Beastie Boys, De La...

    Sony MDR-EX 51/71/81 Eartip Exchange Thread

    Without a doubt the Sony MDR-EX 51/71/81 line of earphones are among the most popular around here. The eartips, however, are easily lost or misplaced as many Loungers can attest to. After reading multiple posts about users wanting to buy/sell/trade the Sony earbud tips/sleeves. I felt it would...

    The 2.5 Gigapixel Image...

    This is quite amazing. Some dutch researchers stitched together a whole bunch of images together to make this mammoth image. It contains 7.5GBs of data, apparently.. Take a look at it here. Now to truly see how awesome it is you should zoom in on such things as the license plates on cars, the...

    Are There Any Traders Among Us?

    So, are there any others amongst us on the Lounge? By trader I am referring to someone that collects live audio shows. Just for some background info, these shows were very popular in the 1970s and 80s, many people would go to a concert and hide audio recorders (such as a DAT Recorder) and...

    Jeff Beck - Blow By Blow

    Well, I just listened to it for the first time today. All I can say is, WOW!!:eek: It's a great bluesy album. I never really paid much attention to Beck, from the Yardbirds trio I solely listened to Page and Clapton, which I now know was a mistake.. Beck is an incredibly good guitarist, and now...
