    Damn, that hurts just to hear about. I HATE ladder falls. Take care of yourself AlpineK. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery!
  4. On Becoming a digital audio snob

    I still like having a hard copy. I'll rip CDs w/ EAC at 320 mbps and stash the mp3s on a remote drive just so tunes are easy to find. Still, if I really want to listen closely (which is actually not very often) I'll break down and dig out the CD or LP. Somewhere over 256 mbps I can't tell the difference between rips, but A/B switching between CDs and rips it's pretty easy to hear how much better CDA is. Most of my listening is either at work, in the car or on the iPod where having "real" quality rips seems less important. At least to me. So compared to CDA, do FLAC and OGG files pass the A/B test? Is there NO difference? And what's the size hit?
  5. Isn't that Carmen Brady???
  6. Real Live Jack Chick Comic

    It's true! Rock star pastor struck by lightning! (okay, maybe not, but jeeze! what a bonehead)
  7. Another music thread

    Right. Peyroux is more like a Leanne Rimes or Joss Stone, in that they're all "channeling" other singers. McKay, otoh, can write songs! The other thing about her that reminds me of Newman is that, imo, most of her material sounds better live than on the record.
  8. Another music thread

    McKay could be her generation's Randy Newman. Only maybe a bit more funny and way better looking. edit to add Live tracks
  9. Many hands make the load lighter and alla that... Meet us at the A-frame at 10 AM.

  18. Another Music Thread

    Grant Street by Sonny Landreth will blow your hair back. The Damnwell's - Bastards of the Beat came out last summer and it's really not very good but for some reason I can't stop listening to it! Seems like I've never not listened to "Trace." If I were to get more Son Volt which one would it be?
  19. What Did You Do This Weekend?

    Saturday I played my new guitar 'til my hands gave out on me. And Sunday I had my best bc day yet this year skiing power-steering snow in Newton Canyon. "Retail is for rookies and rich kids."
  20. SoftShell Pants

    Tape slices together from the outside and then paint a thin coat of Seamgrip on the inside. Leave it dry overnight and pull the tape in the morning. Big cuts can get two coats, but I've yet to have a repair blow open.
  21. Men strike back! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Better to have loved a short girl than never to have loved a tall.
  22. closet country music listeners

    iPod sez: Buddy Miller, Kim Ritchey and Patty Loveless. I know Hank and Jimmy Rogers and etc. are supposed to be the classics, but I can't stand actually listening to 'em.
  23. Cross Country skiing from PDX

    I'd stop by Bennet Pass first (across Hwy 35 from Meadows) just to see if there was enough coverage. The road out is a nice family-friendly out and back. If Bennet's too thin try driving up the Cooper Spur Road, stopping somewhere before you get stuck. Skiing the C.S. road up to Cloud Cap is an awesome family outting. If the gate's closed (any day now?)it'll be a long walk to snow tho'. So maybe drive out the Gorge and up the HR valley, checking Cooper first. Then try Bennet. If that doesn't go T-line is your best last option.
  24. What'd Ya Get?

    A Zoobdude Action Hero!
  25. Good "Greatest Hits" albums

    I got a great "Best of Sam and Dave" last week.
