View Full Version : Music?
11-26-2002, 02:02 AM
As a general rule, I won't buy an album unless I can listen to it straight through, without skipping any tracks. Also, I won't download MP3s from an album unless I'm about to go out and buy it, just so I can hear some songs on the album.
When I do go and buy an album, the first thing I do is rip it to my hard drive using EAC, burn the WAV files to a new CD (with CD-Text for my car's CD player http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif ), and then encode them into MP3s using LAME/RazorLAME. Their filenames appear as "TrackNumber - SongTitle.mp3" . I then file them into a directory structure like this:
D:\Music\Artistname\AlbumNumber - AlbumName\
So, for example, the song called "Numb" by Disturbed has the full path:
D:\Music\Disturbed\01 - The Sickness\07 - Numb.mp3
Anyway, enough with that crap, WHAT DO I LIKE??! I'm not about to start recommending songs, so I'll just post some of the artists who appear in my Winamp playlist, in no particular order:
36 Crazyfists, Aerosmith, Cake, Chris Cornell, Cold, D12, Deftones, Disturbed, DMX, Dr. Dre, Dream Theater, The Eels, Eminem, Fear Factory, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, Korn, Megadeth, Metallica, Moonspell, Mindless Self Indulgence, No Doubt, Nonpoint, Nothingface, The Prodigy, Rammstein, Sevendust, Sinch, Slipknot, The Smashing Pumpkins, Soulfly (providers of my sig http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif ), Sublime, System of a Down, Taproot, Tenacious D, Tool, Killswitch Engage, Five Pointe O, Spineshank, Ill Nino, Chimaira, Dry Kill Logic
So ... what do you all listen to? http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

And you have the nerve to call me old?
I think you forgot Elvis http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/devil.gif
I am quite sure diversity doen'nt make old! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif I can not stand elvis! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
11-26-2002, 01:58 PM
I'm with you there, Nxs ... I'm not a fan of elvis either ...
See, the only reason I didn't include DJ Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, and others in my list above is because I was dog tired and just wanted to go to sleep http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Let's see, the last album I bought was Coldplay's latest, which wasn't too bad, yet not as good as the first one.
Before that I bought a great hi-fi test cd that mainly consists of jazz and classical music, which is great if you want to rate hi-fi systems.
My playlist usually consists of 2pac, Busta Rhymes, Dr Dre, Eels, Fatboy Slim, Gangstarr, Kings of Convenience, Madrugada, Mark Knoppfler, Muse, Pink Floyd, lots of R.E.M., Red hot chili peppers, Santana, Snoop Dogg and Weezer. Besides that I often listen to the radio, even though I hate most pop. When studying I might even put on some Mozard, since it has a great soothing effect. Also started listening to Span, which is a great norwegian rock group that sings in english. Think their single On My Way Down went overseas too.

techno,trance,electronic. and occasionally metal.
im very picky. http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif
11-27-2002, 12:09 AM
ok, techno and trance i have experienced when grinding it out in the clubs, but what is electric? Isnt most music electrical , I see alot of electrical wires hooked up to the equipment and i think the microphones and mixing tables all take electrical power to use http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
11-27-2002, 12:18 AM
lol, i said electronic. music made from machines. much like techno but more raw.
I have a very hard time getting into techno and trance crap, although I do have a few trance/techno remixes of some Beethoven and Mozart! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
11-27-2002, 12:51 AM
Tsk tsk tsk... Getting old there Nxs http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Getting old?http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif I'm only as old as I feel! And I feel somewhere in the vicinity of 18 http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif (act like it too)
11-27-2002, 01:00 AM
Ok grandpa http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
11-27-2002, 01:15 AM
Trance and Techno only works for me out in clubs. Not music I would sit around the house and listen to. Electronic..... maybe I am too old for this "raw stuff"(seeing as how i am not that much younger than NXS with his wife and 5 kids..), though sushi with a healthy cup of saki is pretty good.
Grampa?http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif lol Out of curiousity here How old are you Dennis?

11-27-2002, 02:04 AM
Doh I forgot Offspring, ACDC, Nirvana (i like their "new" single), Ozzy Osbourne and oddly enough i havent seen many other people that actually listen to Queensryche, I cant remember the names of the CDs and dont feel like searching through my CDs to find them, but I have the one with the black CD with the symbol on it, and then the Cd with Silent Lucidity, Empire, etc on it. Ahh the good ole days.
Only good cd they had! Jet city woman was good too and Best I can. I love the 80s I am really gettin old! lol
11-27-2002, 02:10 AM
The black CD had one good song on it, i cant remember what it was...
best I can is the on i was trying to remember, the first song on there, it was shibby!
Another rainy Night? Hand on Heart? Anybody Listening?
11-27-2002, 02:23 AM
Ohhh, Anybody Listening was good, especially the long ending of "sounds of the sea" i can remember just sitting there listening to the waves.
Tis a great song. Thats the song that got me started listening to Enigma and then classical all becuse of the music http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
11-27-2002, 05:46 PM
Classical?! Dude, you are old http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif
Old??? Well you're lucky that you are not closer to me as in my old age I cant chase you so if you wouldnt mind coming a little closer I'll beat the hell out of you with my cane! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
11-27-2002, 06:37 PM
It's ok grandpa, I might walk you over that busy intersection. And even might not let you go in the middle of it and run away http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Sheesh if you are going to try and kill me at least lead me to a diseased hooker! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
And classical is good for ya! Beats the hell out that rap crap! Although I do like Eminem. I have a few other rap songs too! But they are older ones.
11-27-2002, 08:52 PM
Some Eminem is ok, I still think he is for the most part a "punk", and actually I used to have a rap CD...
NWA Ni**** 4 life. The songs were hilarious, like Automobile.....
