Quote from rantipoleI think it is, but I can see why you'd be hesitant. Maybe you could Netflix the first season to give it a trial run.
I'd love to own the Next Gen series but my cash reserves are low right now. I spent lots of money on cards and Roger Waters tickets recently (he's doing the entirety of The Wall live!).
Quote from rantipoleI could talk music forever. To paraphrase Lou Reed, rock'n'roll is like a religion. As you might guess from my sig, Tori Amos is my favorite musician (Perfect day: on the couch drinking coffee reading Sandman while listening to Tori Amos). Her lyrics really speak to me. I'm very lyrically focused; my other favorites include:
Iron and Wine
Nine Inch Nails
I'm also a product of my '90s coming of age, as you can probably tell. I also really love Jeff Buckley and Nirvana but they don't have the extensive body of work that the others have.
I should check out The Flaming Lips. They seem like the closest thing to Pink Floyd. Also, the one Of Montreal song I know is good. The Clash is The Clash. A journalist once referred to them as "the only band that matters."
In another life, I'm a music journalist and I get to review CDs, songs, and concerts, and meet really cool musicians.
Quote from wtwlf123HBO series are gold. Band of Brothers, Deadwood and Rome are all incredible shows. Those are probably the three best things ever put on television in my opinion.
Quote from calibrettoAlthough The Clash is awesome, I'm more into the heavier side of things. My current obsession is the newest Bullet For My Valentine CD. I'm also quite fond of All That Remains and Killswitch Engage. And of course the metal of yore like Slayer, Metallica, and the great Black Sabbath. And then there's my punk rock side that likes Rise Against and the like. My musical tastes are really all over the place. I might go from Slayer to Johnny Cash to Ludacris to Thrice and back to White Zombie all on one mix CD.
Quote from rantipoleThe greatness of Firefly almost goes withou saying.
Quote from calibrettoRise Against may not technically be punk but they're more punk than metal. And they have some very government centric lyrics. What we label then doesn't matter though. All that matters in the end is that they are awesome.
Quote from wtwlf123Ya, I like Rise Against. They're one of the few bands that originated in the last decade I can listen to. I don't care for their Vegetarian ways, but I like the rest of their politics.
Quote from calibrettoAgreed. Bacon tastes good.
Quote from wtwlf123Sewer rat may taste like punkin' pie, but I'd never know...
Quote from bondafongWhat about rat wrapped in bacon...
Quote from Star SlayerA rat is traditionally served on a stick. With ketchup!
Quote from calibrettoSuch a great flick!
Quote from calibrettoCovered in cornbread like a corn dog??
Quote from Star SlayerWait, what movie is it you talk about?
Quote from cuttupsPulp Fiction
Quote from calibrettoThat'd be the one. There's a scene where two of the main characters are having a conversation about one of them (Jules aka Sam Jackson) deciding to stop eating pork because a pig is a "filthy animal". The other one (Vincent aka John Travolta) tries to talk him out of it by reassuring him that "Bacon tastes good. Pork chops taste good." Jules then retorts with "Sewer rat may taste like punkin' pie, but I'll never know cuz I'm not eatin' the filthy MF'er". Good stuff, really. Probably one of the best movies ever to come out of American cinema.
