Gaming / Re: Eve-Online

Tried eve because of the beautiful banner ads they run, but I didn't like it.

But I really enjoyed the soundtrack. Been exploring Space Music, which apparently is a real music genre, it's like new age only not on Prozac and it emphasizes large chamber acoustics. David Arkesntone has this track called Entropy which is positively badass, it sounds like Front Line Assembly waking up. Other good tracks:

Tim Story: Liquid Shadow Night
John Serrie: Hidden World
Steve Roach: Birth of Still Places
Robert Rich: Mythos

Mix in VNV Nation's Ghost, Assemblage 23's Horizon, and FLA's Transmitter and you have a decent work playlist...

You nailed it. It wasn't a cover, I was just being silly...

what happend to the empire building with the impenetrable walls like Empire Earth or Age of Empires 2..

I was a big AOE2 fan, and also enjoyed Rise of Nations RTS, which was pretty much like AOE across all epochs, starting with stone age and ending with nuclear annihilation. But Rise of Nations is like five years old, now!

Usually thinking of RTS as more tactical than strategic. If you stop to think you get your ass handed to you by the AI.

I used to looooove sprawling strategy games like Civilizations and Galactic Civilizations, but they just don't seem to provide enough gratification anymore since I discovered eurogames like Settlers of Catan.

Anyone else get on the wagon? Do computer games still "do it" for you?

Here's one I keep hitting replay on lately:

Infected Mushroom - Poquito Mas:

Take a listen at Flesh Field's Belief Control, heavy electronics with medieval sensibilities, male/female call & answer vocals:

Be sure to check out Damnation, which is a slow, masterfully composed dirge:

Unfortunately they released their entire catalog for free on their website this summer, guessing that means that they're moving on...

I know this one is obvious, but I just re-watched A L I E N director's cut and it is remains a beautiful, Freudian monstrosity. I think the special effects were coy enough that they actually stand up better than the stop-motion used in the sequel.

I enjoyed Brighter Days. REVERBNATION player doesn't have a counter, so I set my watch.

The rolling synths in the opener are mysterious, and the hard rhythm that comes in @ 0:18 is motivating.

The dirty guitar @ 0:54 and especially the synths that acompany it @ 1:09 are pleasantly unexpected and exciting.

The melody (melody?) that comes in @ 1:40 is a little boring, and the instrument is kind of generic, but maybe it doesn't need to stand out with everything else going on in the track.

Thanks for posting!

I think these mainstream bands sounds like these not-so-mainstreams, but it gets subjective:

Filter > 16volt
Nine Inch Nails > Android Lust
Dope > Die Krupps
Rammstein > Eisbrecher
Orgy > Imperative Reaction
Adema > Celldweller
Depeche Mode > Assemblage 23
KMFDM > Flesh Field

Waaayyy ahead of you...

In all seriousness, alcohol doesn't actually destroy brain cells and make you stupid. That doesn't mean it doesn't have temporary or long-term effects on your nervous system, or increase risk factors for other diseases.

Does alcohol kill brain cells in adults? Not in the cerebellum.

What does happen? Alcohol damages dendrites, reducing message traffic between neurons.

Is the damage permanent? No, it's mostly reversible, but neuronal structure is changed in the process.
