My buffalo may be slow, but they're also numerous and belligerent. And they refuse to herd...

Agreeing with the Amstel is piss crowd... big Paulaner Oktoberfest fan... Sam's is good, too.

Not so sure about brain cells, but in terms of antioxidants (tied to longevity studies), even the darkest beer has significantly fewer than a glass of cranberry juice. And you'd have to drink A LOT of wine to get the same amount of antioxidants in a glass of grape juice. So there are a lot easier, less expensive ways to get antioxidants.

There are other qualities that fruit juice lacks (anticlotting), but note that longevity studies do NOT recommend STARTING drinking, they only recommend the TYPES of alcohol to SWITCH to: darker beer and redder wine.

Realistically, cancer risk is the more important issue:
The research team found that regular heavy consumption of beer and spirits – meaning 180 drink-years or more – increased the risk of esophageal and liver cancer more than sevenfold.

In a nutshell, the study found that having more than one drink a day is risky, and that having one drink a day instead of seven over a weekend is healthier. So, in addition to being classy, savoring a dark ale is healthier than chugging piss.

Call me arrogant, but I still have a use for my brains. Cant afford to drown them with alcohol :P
Nah, not a big beer fan really.

Based on new medical studies, definitely a good move in the long term...

Hello? Oktoberfest?!

Name That Song! / Re: Can you tell me what this track is?

Hmmmm, that's not the one. I can definately see the parallels, there, with the female/male combo and upbeat synths, but the track I'm thinking of has more synchronous vocals and the lyrics are less abstract. And unless Promised Land's meaning is escaping me, its lyrics aren't dirty at all. "Searched through every open door," indeed. Probably some back doors, too... :D

The synths on the track I'm thinking of were dated, most definately pre-millennial, perhaps just a little cheesy. This might be old school, not sure.

OK, I don't THINK this is on DG, in fact I'm 99.99% sure it isn't, but maybe you can help me figure this one out, anyway.

The song features heaven & hell combo of melodic female vocals and gritty male vocals, and has ABACA architecture, as those tracks typically do. Well... not KMFDM-gritty, but gritier than the female vocals. Not a lot of distortion on either. The whole thing is in 4/4 time, so it's not very danceable.

It starts out with some minimalist synths, then gets heavier as the looped basework chugs into a creshendo where male and female vocals actually sing the refrain, and they DO IT AT THE SAME TIME. There's a LOT of synth going on here, percussion is barely present at all, though guitars are definately chugging upbeats and break in several times for effect.

During the bridge, the rhythm accelerates as guitarwork goes haywire as a brassy sound playes counterpoint.

The lyrics are kind of trashy - not Angelspit-trashy - but the song is unabashedly about humping. Can't remember the lyrics very well, something about "Cause we seem to understand the urgency" and "searched through every open door".

Any ideas?

New 16volt (American Burn Songs) is excellent. Sounds like what Filter should have evolved into. Hard, hammering industrial rock with elevating harmonies evoking green-filtered Witkowski-esque action sequences. Probably too much rock here for DG playlist, predictable ABACA structure, and the guitar work heads dangerously into Ozzy territory on tracks like (09)The Lord Doesn't Want Her and (08) Blackbird. Some late-90s numetal on (13) Useless People.

Among the 15 (15!) tracks

01 Alkali
03 With Fire and Burning
07 It All Turns Bad

are particularly epic, but there's not a track on there that doesn't sound carefully wrought, buffed, and polished. Closing track (15) American Bomb Songs is damned kinky and would make one of the best FPS menu loops ever.

Switching gears, I'm voting Wolfsheim's And I for breakup song and
Solitary Experiments' Watching Over You in the creepy eroticism category.

Agreeing with the "MMOs are boring" folks, but I did try Eve, and found, though it indeed was boring to play, that the soundtrack was exceptional, at least equivalent to Homeworld.

There's this album called Forever by supergroup Bruderschaft that somewhere (I forget where) I got the impression that it was supposed to be some kind of Futurepop manifesto. But I see according to Amazon it's considered a tribute album...

Angels & Agony
Colony 5
Lights of Euphoria
and of course VNV Nation...


"This project features: the famous New York DJ & promoter Rexx Arkana (lyrics), Sebastian Komor (ICON OF COIL) on music, Joakim Montelius (COVENANT) on electronic loops, Ronan Harris (VNV NATION) on vocals and Stephan Groth (APOPTYGMA BERZERK) on backing vocals and production. This first release "Forever" is dedicated to Rexx Arkana's father: Charles Richard Millhouse who died in 1999 after having lost the battle against cancer, he was only 57 years old"

I would like to listen tracks from "Unterart", it`s really good.

Unterart's alright. Memento is well produced, a lot of it sounds like cartoonish vampire music, which is not a bad thing. Everything seems to click on Pariah, which has a funky rythm and deftly assigned staccato syths, under growly, gravely vocals. Atrophied sounds A LOT like Playing the Angel era Depeche Mode, and they capture a real mellow, real creepy vibe on it.

Nah, it was one of the "normal" areas, if such a thing exists in SL. Hey, I know what I'm doing. When I want to go to furry town, I'll go to furry town... in the buff. :D
