3. Re: morning coffee Mar 18, 2008, 09:05 strich
 
Is it time for the annual coffee grinder discussion already?

I knew we had the coffee discussion, but i guess i've just missed the machinery part of it in the past. I'll check out the Kitchen Aids and see what i can find. My father in law keeps trying to pass off bags of whole beans to us every time we're over (he buys everything in bulk), so i thought i'd see what all the hubub was about knowing how addicted my wife is to her coffee.

Thanks for the info.

Maybe you should set up the boards with a list of stickies with all of these commonly asked questions.

Hey Blue,
Can you give me any good inside info on coffee grinders? We've been looking at maybe picking one up, but have no clue what to look for. During the week, we normally set our coffee maker to brew the night before, so when we get up, it's made. Do they make grinders that'll grind and brew at a set time? And are they really loud?

X-Files a flop? Bite your tongue Blue.

Anything to see the luscious Scully again. I've always got room for a gorgeous redhead and her hilarious, trash talking partner.

I'm sure it'll be Journey or that Angelina movie. It looks to be already taking itself way to serious.

we need to put some background Joker laughing sounds to that video and it'd be hilarious.

None of us are ready to become Blue orphans just yet.

You tell Mrs. Blue to keep her head down. I'm sure you're ok all locked up in your cozy little office space.

I take it you didn't like Still, then?

Yeah, didn't really do much for me.

I tend to go back to the earlier albums. Maybe my tastes have just changed. God, i must be getting old.

Bring on the Captain and Tennelle!

1. Observations on Ghosts Mar 5, 2008, 09:36 strich
 
While Ghosts is what Iíve come to expect out of Trent, I have a few observations Iíd like to make:

1. This was not a real release of anything new, but proof that he could make his business model work after failing with Saul.
2. Thereís absolutely nothing new here. This sounds like samples heís had rolling through his head since after Pretty Hate (leftovers from all of his B-sides/remixes Ė Fixed, Further Down, etc) that heís never put on tape or stuff that was sitting on the cutting room floor that he used to make #1, above, work.
3. Iím wondering if after all of this time, heís not running out of ideas. While thereís plenty of banjo in the CMT Music Awards, I donít think 4 minutes of it mixed with distorted screaming or the same 5 notes on the xylophone is really anything weíd consider music.
4. 36 samples of his input to Groove Salad?
5. These all sound like samples that heís awaiting bidding on for background music for next weeks NCIS preview or something thatíll end up in the trailer of the next Jerry Bruckheimer film.
While Iím fine giving my 5 bucks to him for this music (I feel sorry for the poor bastard that forked out the $300 for the special package), Iím a little disappointed in the quality of the music. My 11 year old also has an electronic keyboard thatíll play music that sounds like a piano and a banjo and other non-musical instruments thrown in for filler.

I love how he is always thinking outside the box and is revolutionary in his music making, but I guess Iím just a bit disappointed in this.



so for you, enjoy your madness.

Thank you, i do every day.

Doesn't matter to me - mine is already on it's way.

Yeah, the front page states in big bold font that they're suffering from lots of traffic. I'll be grabbing a copy when i get home today. the sample sounds pretty good though.

Cause i'm sure nin's gotten tired of sitting there pounding the F5 key for 3 hours waiting to see your post.

Always the first post. hehehe

i like the earlier time, but by the time i get here (expecting the late start), there's already a dozen posts all over the boards.

I guess it beats shoveling snow.

12. The best cure for hiccups... Feb 26, 2008, 11:59 strich
 
While that's an interesting discussion, it a) goes against my beliefs and b) makes me wonder why it makes my wife sound like a mating buzzard when she hiccups every 20 minutes (no joke, it happens all day long). fish, ehh. buzzard, likely.

Do you mean that you didn't understand what happened, or that you didn't understand what they were trying to do with how the story played out?

If you didn't understand what happened, you could try reading the spoilers for it.

He probably wasn't happy with the "non-hollywood" ending as most weren't.

Personally, i loved the film. got my vote for the pic of the year.

Anyone know if there's an equivalent to BN for the mac world? I know Blue occasionally puts up info about mac, but i'm new with mine and didn't know if anyone suggested any sites for games and reviews and such similar to this one.

and no, you won't lose me to another site. i come here for more than the information.

I'm picking up a PS3 today on the way home. With the HD market collapsing so suddenly, i've gotten myself hooked on high def movies. and the player's getting really good reviews, so i know it'll be the best choice.
