    i grew up in a crazy house ... not literally, but figureatively ...

    my mom was a hippy that sobered up, and my dad was a dirtbag that didnt ...

    i was exposed to sooooooooooo many different styles of music growing up ive discovered it is hard to hate a type of music for its type (except for trance, WTF were they thinking?), but i can appreciate just about any instance of any style as long as it's played well. i guess my quasi-musicianship comes thru there, or my schitzophreinia(sp?).

    anyhoo ...

    I listen to just about anything that isnt country, rap, or trance ...
    my favorites are intelligent hiphop, jungle (or d&b, whatever you call it, its all the freaking same to me), and really hard stoner metal (like tool, kyuss, karma to burn, ect ...)
    I still listen to a lot of late 80's-early 90's "alternative" stuff, some new wave, a bit of straight-edge hardcore, a little emo, minimal & detroit style techno, very intelligent house ( im picky about my house now ...) anything with a killer bassist ( i.e. primus, firehose, lots of jazz no one but my family knows, lots of local/regional funk/hippy bands) ... some classic rock, bluegrass, whatever im in the mood for really ...

    I really cant make a list of bands and make it anywhere near complete ... I've seen so many play live in my 30 years that i cant even remember them all ... and see so many dj's spin it gives me migraines just thinking about it.

    I must admit I'm a bit sporadic in my music tastes. I usually go through week long phases of a certain type of music.

    During one week, I'll listen to nothing but hip-hop. Some newer stuff, but usually late 80's-early 90's stuff (hence the username)...
    I've got everything on Hwulex's list for sure.

    The next week I'll listen to nothing but Radiohead, Depeche Mode, Placebo, Portishead...stuff like that.

    Then I'll get into an electronica mood and just listen to Oakenfold, Prodigy, etc. I just watched Hackers again the other day, so I listened to the soundtrack for about 3 days straight afterwards.

    Like most people here, my stereo gave country music a restraining order. But almost anything else goes. I have lots of jazz and blues on my drive too...classic rock, alternative, heck I've even got a couple Gregorian Chant cd's around here somewhere..(when I really need to get mellow in a hurry) Aside from country, I'm not into really heavy/death/whatever metal.

    Since I'm in the middle of farmland, I don't get to any concerts, so I've been downloading lots of live video footage, SNL appearances, etc. Sorry if that's considered piracy talk. I can't buy that kind of stuff around here...else I would.

    Sorry, this is getting too long. Never get me started talking about music.

    Listening to Aim - Coldwater Music a lot this week as well, along with the mandatory Talib Kweli - Quality :hip:

    Do you mean that old scary movie? I'll have to go check that one out.
    Yeah, Talib is essential. I play Waitin For The DJ in the car all the time. (is there a head bobbin' smilie out there somewhere? the rock dude seems inappropriate)
    Who would you compare AIM to? I've never heard of them...I see they're from the UK. Would they be mainstream enough to find in an HMV? Otherwise, I'll have to look online.

    EDIT:
    Alright, I look like an idiot. :duh: Obviously I hadn't heard of the group yet. But, you've got to admit, it's almost an easy error to make. The album is called Original Soundtrack after all. I was wondering why that movie would have a good soundtrack. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to find these guys and give em a listen.

    Hehe, yeah, easy mistake. I probably could have made it clearer as well, sorry.

    Here's a link to AIM's album. To compare... I'm not sure. It's mellow, chillout, stuff. Trip-hop in fact.
    More info at AllMusic.com.

    The PUtS album can be found here. More info on the group and album on AllMusic.com. :)

    Rush (Neil Peart RULES!)
    Older Ozzy
    Black Sabbath
    Led Zeppelin
    Nirvana
    Iron Maiden
    Van Halen (pre 1984)

    There are others, but those would be the most listened to.

    How do you people afford cd's over there?? :eeek:
    All right, I went to the link for the P.U.T.S. album. The UK HMV (really amazon) site has it listed for 15.99 (sorry I don't have the pound symbol readily available)
    According to my currency converter, that's $35.81Canadian, or $26.43US.
    Now, if you go onto the Canadian version of the same HMV site, it is listed for $27.99 Canadian.
    If you go onto the cdnow.com website, it's listed for $14.99US, which converts to 9.07 for you.
    Is this the same for every cd you buy, or just imports??
    Tell me I can't buy Radiohead cheaper here than you can there!!
    To be fair though, HMV's prices were stupid everywhere. I'm not paying $27.99 for a cd. I remember having to pay those kind of prices for the old "controversial" hip-hop cd's back when cd's were new. Does anyone here remember having to ask for stuff like NWA or Too Live Crew, because they were hidden behind the counter, and always cost twice as much as any other cd in the store.
    Ahh, the good old days.

    Depends where you buy and what you buy. Most of the imports I buy are between £11.99 and £14.99. Most of the proper UK release stuff I won't pay more than £11.99 for though. As you can usually find them for around £10.

    Wow! That's such a big difference!

    For example, K, I see you were listening to Mars Volta at the time of your last post. That cd is $10.99 CDN at Future Shop, which is about 4.93 for you. All new releases come in at about $14.99CDN, or 6.72. Now, if you go to Wal-Mart, and try to buy an older title, then you're looking at $20-25CDN (8.97-11.21), but that's pretty rare. There is a second hand store (alright, pawn shop, but it's not like the stereotypical ones, it's actually nicer than the regular music stores) where you can get 3 cd's for $20. They even have a section that has slightly scratched cd's (guaranteed not to skip) for 3/$10.

    I'm officially going to stop complaining about the cost of cd's for now. I do, however, still contend that they should ALL be filling up those disks with a lot more than just music for these prices. Would a few pics, lyrics, and other info really cost so much more to include?
