• Re: What music do you guy

    From metalhead@VERT/ALKY to Deavmi on Sunday, December 04, 2016 05:59:00
    I like Cafe Music and yeah. Also classical music is nice.

    What does cafe music mean to you? What country are you from?

    Classical almost always sounds great! It's kind of distracting for me, when
    I'm concentrating on something. I listen to all kinds of jazz, and I always love it, but I'm getting a little sick of all the Christmas jazz that's been
    on the air lately.

    I went to a public university, and I attended as many of the student concerts as possible. It was always "classical" music, and I loved it. It was a very old, rustic school, so the venues were always interesting to look at, too.

    I attended a bunch of their plays too, and the music was usually more thrilling than the drama. There were musicians sitting near the front of the audience playing all the music to accompany the plays. Those were good times!

    I'm trying to convince my family to check these things out with me now, but they are all too attracted to pop, and also sick of my jazz playing all the time. One of these days, I'm going to get super-baked and go check out a concert at the local university here in Binghamton, NY.

    Assuming you live in USA (I don't know?) I strongly recommend checking with your local university's music department for a schedule of their concerts. Students are kick ass musicians, in my experiences. Tickets are usually cheap too, like $10 or less, and if it's anything like it was at my university,
    they will rock you!

    their phone and they're not even watching it (just listening)! But they don't know/care about wasted bits, just convenience. Now I do it too on

    Yes. It only has to hold 1 frame and then instructions to repeat it -
    I'd assume something like that. Rather than uncompressed (or shitty
    encoding scheme) which stores all frames (even though they are the same)
    and plays them.

    Just about any Floyd is fine with me, but partial to Meddle, Wish You
    Were Here and Dark Side Of The Moon....

    Three of my favorites. A lot of folks I grew up with only seemed to really like "The Wall" and "Animals" - the darker stuff. I like it all, but my favorite was when you could pretty much tell that all of them were
    contributing somehow. So, I prefer the older stuff, like "Echoes." Wish is
    my favorite. Even thought they were supposedly starting not to get along
    then, they created something awesome with that one.

    Later-day critics have panned Atom Heart Mother, but I like that one a lot also. Relics, too.
