I've Never Seen Jaws 9 years ago
I've never seen, nor I intend to, the Lord of the Rings thingy. I tried to read the book but sci/fi/fantasy is definitely not my thing, though it should because all engineers like sci/fi. I did read all of Asimov's Foundations and Robots long ago, don't think I could read them now. I haven't watched either the new Star Wars movies, again the sci/fi/fantasy thing that doesn't click... but I love Harry Potter movies, though I haaaaaaaate the books! can somebody explain that?
Another weird thing, I have read most of Chuck Palahniuk's books, but I haven't seen Fight Club. I guess I don't want to spoil the book smiley .
Oh... and I must confess this... I... don't... like... Woody Allen movies! First and last was 'September' and I left the theater running in fear they'd play it again.

One thing I do watch every so many years is Pink Floyd's The Wall. I watch it with my dad (73 y/o), who is an old fashioned non-rock person but likes Freddy Mercury and loves The Wall. We've had the most amazing/deep conversations every time we watch it, totally unreal.

iCompostions Staff Who's Who? 9 years ago
uhmmmm... I've been asked for my opinion... so... although I've been not as active as I wanted lately (it's the freaking work going crazy on me for the last... year..s!!!!) I'll still give my opinion:
I think is a cool idea, for the exact reasons Bec is saying: to help the newbies understand how things work and who we are. Totally agree with Eido that changing to the mod status should not change the way you work with the other artists, not at all, but the fact is you are a mod now (or and admin or a... purple) and it will help the newbies to understand 1) the different colors, 2) the different responsibilities and 3) the different people behind this. I don't think (well, I hope) Zallaz is not asking for an 'age/sex/location/what-do-you-do-on-your-summer-vacations' type of descriptor, you should be free too put whatever you think is appropriate to this little bio, even the 'about you' information you have in your page (or an abstract) as this information is widely available anyway, right? and, again to Eido's point, you are still the same person. It's just a shortcut in case somebody has a question, because, believe me, they will have questions.
So, bottom line, my interpretation is that it won't be an opportunity to show how awesome we are (although, yes, we all are) but more an opportunity to give, specially to the newbies, a shortcut to get to the right people that could help them...

Actually, now that I think more about it, maybe the compromise is to have in the 'about us' section a 'role description' of each color (pardon the corporate language, at least I didn't ask for a PACE chart - Process Owner/Approver/Contributor/Executor) and then a list of the current admins and mods (no bios).

What do you think?

Have you heard ... so and so? 10 years ago
This song, Revolution of a Bike Ride, has been one of my favorites since long ago, together with Voice? and I don't mean one of my favorites song from AimlessScene, I mean one of my favorites. period. Then he did this craziness that got me saying 'I need you' for a while and now he posts Pocket City and I've been listening to it non stop for the last two days.
If you hear them all together you may notice that Aim is a MASTER in mixing not so classical stuff in a classical way for that weird but yet comfortable style that I sincerely adore.
IT IS TIME FOR AN AIMLESS CD!!! I want mine!!!!! NOW

Favorite underrated female singers ever 10 years ago
Underrated females... Gwen Stefani!!! (KIDDING!)

Camille I think (I hope) she is well known in France, her latest CD is lovely. The video for "ta doleur" (on her website and on youtube) is just too good.

CocoRosie two sisters, weird music, wonderful website.

Sneaker Pimps British electropop, not really a 'girl' but a band, but the girl's voice is awesome and the lyrics terrific. Their website is so so, so the link is to the video of my fav song from them in youtube.

Shivaree maybe not so underrated, but still she should be as rated as Gwen

Lhasa de Sela the first CD I got from her was great, the second one so so, she does rock anyway. De Cara a la Pared is just a great song

there's probably more but I can only come up with underrated male singers now smiley

Chinese Whispers - Cover Cadavre 11 years ago
Keep in mind the 2 songs post/4 hours delay for the next two/2 next songs post/4 hours delay/etc.
You could a) get a bunch of you post pair of songs to cover them all and/or b) send a message to PM or mattf to see if they can make an exception for this occasion (hey, that rhymes), as I pressume you want them to be all together on the music list. Also you could open a 'chinese whispers' account, so even with the delay they are all neatly together under one artist. If you don't do any of that, may I suggest to add a common word/s to the song names (ie chinese whispers) so the group search is easier smiley

Revising the Genre List 11 years ago
From Merrian-Webster:
Acoustic: 1 : of or relating to the sense or organs of hearing, to sound, or to the science of sounds <acoustic apparatus of the ear> <acoustic energy>: as a : deadening or absorbing sound <acoustic tile> b : operated by or utilizing sound waves 2 : of, relating to, or being a musical instrument whose sound is not electronically modified

Hence acoustic is not a genre, is more of a technique, if you may, that can be used in different genres and, in fact, is not listed in any 'respectable' list of music genres as one.

Actually, the not-so-respected Wikipedia defines acoustic music as: music that solely or primarily uses acoustic instruments, such as the acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, piano, cello, and voice. The category includes much contemporary folk and singer-songwriter music, as well as bluegrass music. It can also refer to instrumental music that is created using acoustic instruments.

So if we follow that maybe acoustic music should be in the folk genre (currently available). Though I wouldn't agree with that as if we check the popular MTV Unplugged albums (ultimate commercial acoustic) Nirvana did one, as did Bob Dylan, as did Shakira... (as some others of course) an I'll kill myself if anybody thinks Shakira is 'Folk'.

Bottomline: there are (literally) close to a hundred if not more music genres, it is unpractical to have them all AND then also music techniques on top of that, therefore we can't make everybody happy. Sorry smiley. I personally love acoustic music and even so I had to say 'is not a genre, it doesn't go on the genre list'.

Ps: if you are doubting about a genre for an electronica song, check this website smiley

Pluggin rules 11 years ago
It is indeed hard to draw the line on the 'just words plugs' and, honestly, they are to some extreme as annoying as the real plugs. The obviously pre-fabricated contexts such as 'hey! I just uploaded a song' or 'can you check my song and tell me what you think?' or 'if you want to listen to good ___ (insert music genre) you should listen to my stuff' or 'I just did a great collab' or 'my song is on the list!' are sort of acceptable for a first timer, or an isolated sort of event (at least that's my rule) but the repetitive, constant reference to your song as anybody arrives to the chat is highly annoying and disturbing, as much as the real plugging... by repetitive I mean more than one time. It is especially upsetting to me when it is coming from artists that have been warned about it in previous ocassions... it turns the moderators (and admins) job into 'hall monitors' instead of actually helpers and/or facilitators for other things. We really don't enjoy linking the plugging etiquette or reminding you guys about it time after time, as some of you might think.
