  1. Hey all, as a growing student of music I've always been interested in the members of this site that also play, read, study, and or write music. So I figured we could use our own thread. Here we can discuss musical concepts from quarter notes to perfect double augmented 5th intervals! Post your music here (providing links to sites with you music and not direct mp3's. Keep our boards clean people! ) Comment on the music. Look for it's strong elements. Suggest diffrent courses of action. Don't just dismiss a piece of music as bad. Suggest styles of music individuals can compose in. Honestly I created this thread as a students helper. If you having trouble in you studies talk about it here! I suspect there are many members of the board who are interested in music. Justin - Who'll probably post some of his music later on.

  4. Is it just me or does it seem like our dear moderator and other nameless parties seem to be transporting every thread into a Trek filled nerd fest? Honestly Neil, it's as if you see things with the eyes of a child. What makes you think you're a man? You're an overgrown jackrabbit. An elf with a hyperactive thyroid. I'm all part and parsel for the occasional quote but to assimilate an entire thread is going over the top. I doubt you understand, Neil. You don't have the brains to understand. It needs to stop. Neil! I want this! As much as you want to be moderator, I want this! Anyway...that's all I had to say. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go out...thataway... Justin
  5. Happy birthday Neil!!!! "HAAAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR NE-IL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUU!" Justin -Who wishes Neil the happiest b-day. P.S. July 17 is your birthday right? :tongue2:

    A Song of Ice and Fire

    Anyone reading this series by George R.R. Martin? I've been working my way through book one for the last several months and find it fantastic. The book has an incredible sense of character depth, political intrigue, and solid storylines. The biggest problem is that it's so incredibly long I feel like it will be quite an acomplishment if I finish the series in my lifetime. Anyone else know what I'm talking about? Justin

  8. Well need I explain more? 8O Justin
  9. The Raiders German theme is heard on track 13 starting at 1:45 Justin -Who voted for the Raiders german theme but he still really likes the TLC's German theme.
  10. 10 years ago on January 16th the U.S.S. Voyager launched from Deep Space Nine to eventually end up 70,000 light years and 7 seasons away. Happy Birthday, Star Trek Voyager! Justin

    Happy Birthday, Renovia...

    I still have a Christmas card from Ren. Justin
  12. I thought The Usual Suspects was a fantastic ending with a good movie around it. Justin

    For the Fallen

    I'm sure guns are banned at Virginia Tech and that didn't work. At any rate this is a horrible tragedy. There is some fairly intense video footage where you can hear gunfire floating around. Justin
  14. Holy crap I just understood the movie! Justin
  15. I've quite enjoyed the music in Heroes. Justin
  16. The Black Dahlia. It has it's moments but somehow I just did not really get this. I never really felt conected with the characters. DePalma is in top form the script just seemed to lack heart. 3 out of 5. A Scanner Darkly. Great stuff. An intelligent adaptation which doesn't just pluck an idea from the novel and go somewhere diffrent (pretty much any of the other PKD movies.) Performances are great. 4 out of 5. The Mosquito Coast. An interesting film that deals with some powerful concepts. Harrison Ford is surprisingly good. Some of the hostility from Rev Spellgood is a little far fetched. 4 out of 5. The Last Temptation Of Christ. The most thought provoking film I've seen in probably 6 months. For some reason I grew up thinking this movie was about Jesus banging Mary and then dies somewhere in India. While a lot of it's plot takes quite a few liberties from the gospels I think it's strength is that it's the only film version of the gospel where I actually believe that Jesus is a human being. To me, no matter if your are Christian or otherwise this is much more powerful. Jesus actually being human with all of our doubts and fears and yet somehow still managed to go through with crucifixtion just enhances and makes me appreciate the story all the more. I'm willing to forgive it's other flaws just for that. 5 out of 5. Justin

    Star Trek Generation temporal logic?

    I concur. The Generations and First Contact commentary are fantastic. Justin - Who wishes the shows had commentary.
  18. The do seem kind of fanny. Justin

    A Song of Ice and Fire

    I did not hear that. I don't want to watch it until I've finished all the books, though. Which could be....years... Justin
  20. I think this thread is dead finally . It's....it's dead, Jim. Justin

    Williams wins 2 Grammys

    I think we're getting off topic here. Joe, what were you saying? Justin
  23. Waiting... A great comedy. One of the funniest movies I've seen. 4/5. Justin

    Anyone watching Heroes?

    The cheerleader story kind of lost steam though. I find the whole "be my friend again" theme to be kind of annoying. Ditch the nerd! Justin
