Sometimes I'll hear stuff that I know is the same as ever, like The Strokes, but I can listen to it on the level it was intended and enjoy it for that. Reading through Sambob and Ben's stories, I can see some weird mirror images of events I left out of my story. For instance, Ben saying his friends shifting from Grunge to Cypress Hill was the same situation I was in. I picked up on the Cypress Hill, but then I went off in a Punk direction while my friends all listened to MeTaL! (I also used to listen to Meatloaf, the first album bought for me ever because I was always singing Bat Out Of Hell that I'd heard on the advert). And Sambob, sounds like you got into Talking Heads about the same time as me, but Cure didn't come later on (Only a couple of years ago actually). Good to see a few people taking this up, I've found it dead interesting I certainly didn't expect to see Sambob's side of things so enlightening, as I thought he was a music dolt. Which you are. And you smell. Jew.
  4. How has your musical taste evolved? I'm quite interested in seeing the way other people grew up with music. I'll throw my story in first, though I'll try to keep it short. I was never really into music when I was a kid. It's not that I didn't like it, I used to love listening to The Kinks, Carpenters, Mamma's and Papa's... All the old classics when I was in my Dad's car, but I didn't recognise a love for music. It was just something to sing along to back then. My dad never listened to the radio, so I was never exposed to anything. It was at the age of about 15 that something started to happen. My friend Rich bought 2 new albums from Our Price, "Nirvana - Nevermind" and "Green Day - Dookie". I fell in love. I'd not heard anything like either before, they were like pop music, but different, and the catches had me hooked. I started building a collection, basic stuff at first, the building blocks to most "alternative" kids collection: Slipknot, Green Day, Nirvana, System of a Down. I just went through the motions of thinking I was really into music, because I didn't listen to Pop music, and it was a bad road to go down. I started getting into stuff that I remembered from School Discos. All that classic 90s dance stuff. I was listening to a lot of Punk and Ska at the time, stuff like NOFX. This was when I was about 19 - 20. I was getting bored of it, if anything all of it sounded the same. I started listening to cheesey dance, just because I could remember it, stuff like Snap! and N-Trance, downloading it from the McInternet and laughing my ass off. Then my wife introduced me to Aphex Twin and it changed my life forever. Drukqs was the first album I heard, and it was so hard to get it to, I persevered with it because I knew there was something in it. I listened to every instrument, every sample, every track until I finally understood it all. It was like all genre's packed into one, where he could do anything he wanted with music, and I wanted to do anything I wanted with music. So I stopped listening to one kind, and started listening to all kinds. Now I'm listening to anything from Yo La Tengo to Prefuse 73 to Low to Justin Fucking Timberlake, and as long it's good, or well produced or just interesting in any way, I'll listen to it. I just love music.
  5. You'll have to go into the show with an open mind like, it's completely off the wall to the point where it generally doesn't make any sense I love it. EDIT: Ben, Bruce Campbell is in the movie, maybe that's what you've seen.
  6. Don't know if we have any ATHF fans on the site, but here's a link to the movie intro which is fucking awesome: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=VonLx7AoeFM Music by Mastadon

    That's a pretty dire month of games. I don't think there's anything on there that I'd want anyway, but the scores reflect the times I think. Few games, and those we do get are mediocre. Stupid fake summer.

I just can't agree with a game that stole 2D away from my beloved heterosexual plumber. He's never been the same since
  9. I also enjoyed Resi 2, much, much more. My favourite Resi after 4.
  10. http://www.goldenjoystick.com/ Anyone voting this year? I've been bigging up the 42 Classics as Nintendo's game of the year, amongst others (Viva Pinata, Company of Heroes and Crackdown mainly). Get voting!
  11. Centy wrote: at the moment i would have to agree but i don't own either so PC FTW! You should pick up Rainbow Six Vegas at some point an excellent, excellent game. I might just do that, it does look good. And there's a bit of a difference between games on a PC and games on a console to be fair, to the point where they're barely comparable. I couldn't play something like Civilisation or Roller Coaster Tycoon on a PC, but I'd much rather play something like GTA or Crackdown on a console, because it's just easier to pick up and play.
  12. I've currently got Crackdown, Gears of War and Viva Pinata Absolutely loving it and haven't stopped playing since I bought it. Definitely worth the cash, and (shhhh) I prefer it to the Wii.
  13. There's a hell of a lot of 'new' games in that last, and I'm especially surprised to see Crackdown in there as I've only owned it for 3 days and nearly completed it. It's good, but it's not Top 100 good.
