I'll just wait patiently until COA is released--then I'll slip it into my home stereo and CRANK IT. GH is nearly always fun to listen to when it's loud. :D Something occurred to me today, and at this stage it's probably too late to change anything, but it must be said... I dearly hope that the lyric...

Took in a PT show at NEARFest 2001, and honestly it wasn't memorable for me. I do have a copy of Deadwing somehere around here; maybe it's time to listen to it with a give-'em-a-fresh-start mindset. Let's see about meeting up when you guys make the trip down here.

And have alcohol handy.
Who needs alcohol when you can work your way through the collection of "Bad Album Covers" while listening to Bad Music Radio?? :shock:

Sweet Junior Gibson. I nearly strangled myself trying not to laugh so loud as to wake my roomies. So, Flo, did the rider for the "Practice Room" CD release show look anything like that? :P :lol:

I plan on purchasing it direct from the band, rather than thru progrock.com. It'll be interesting to see if there are any audience shots, and if I'm in 'em. :D

I've mentioned on-forum that I'll be attending ROSFest this weekend. Diverse? Howzabout a Loreena McKennitt show the day before? :D She'll be performing in Asheville, NC, this Thursday. That's an interesting way to kick off a weekend of prog. I'm also planning to attend a Rush show this June, and th...

I watched the last two weeks' episodes back-to-back earlier this week. And I gotta agree with yeshead--I've seen this plot before, where it looks like the bad guys have been put away for good and then the writers throw in a curve to stretch the show out more. I mean, WHAT purpose is served by having...

As may have been concluded by the fact that this thread has been dormant since before RogueFest '05, NoiseDotCom went on hiatus after that. We did get as far as completing recording for a CD, but never got as far as the mastering process. There were, uh, tensions between two guys that devolved into ...

This little toy is giving me a bad case of gotta-have-it-osis. It's got about as much power as my Peavey bass amp, but weighs only about 65 pounds compared to the Peavey's 95. I really like the slanted-back cabinet; you can point the speakers straight up at your face. I'm over the idea of needing f...

Too lazy to dye your own Easter eggs? There's a simple fix--feed a chicken some LSD and let him do the work for you. :lol:

I'm planning to attend the Atlanta show--but I don't care to deal with that hassle just to get tickets that might be within the first 50 rows. I'll get a lawn seat ticket.
