  1. My Elliott Smith ranking would be:



    Figure 8



    From a Basement on the Hill

    Roman Candle.


    I would think that any of those top 4 would be a good place to start but I know several people who think Figure 8 is too polished and over-produced. I'm not one of them (obviously) but Either/Or or X/O are sure to convince you of his greatness.

  2. I also thought he was underwhelming relative to expectations but he did look extremely presidential and did have several good answers. I thought he started very cold and got better. I agree that he botched the "attacked" question but Edwards' answer was worse on that. That was another bad question - "what if two cities were simultaneously attacked and he were sure that it was Al Qaeda?"

  3. I agree that Richardson was the big loser for the night, but didn't have a problem with the Gonzales answer. My problem was that he seemed uncomfortable and unpresidential. He was leaning over at one point, struggling to hear a question (he was among the closest to Brian Williams). He also bumbled a couple of times at the start of question.


    I thought Clinton started the strongest and Obama finished the strongest. I thought it was interesting how those two didn't go after each other in the slightest way, even indirectly. They each, at one point, referred to the other by their first name in a complimentary statement. Edwards did attack the two of them but not by name and not overly harsh. I thought he flubbed the "moral leader" question (an awful question by the way). I thought they all flubbed the Giuliani "safer with a Republican president" question. No one bothered to explain why the statement was false.


    I would say Clinton, Obama, and Dodd were winners. Richardson was a clear loser for me, but I would also say that Edwards was a loser.

  4. First tape: Def Leppard - Hysteria

    First concert: some southern gospel group, similar to The Oak Ridge Boys or The Statler Brothers but with more gospel and less country.


    I'm much prouder of the concert than the album. Many of those groups had very talented singers and excellent harmonies. The concert atmosphere is something I wouldn't enjoy today, but I loves me some good harmonizing.

  5. Thanks for the replies. (I'm on a PC by the way.) I think iSproggler will work for me, but what I was trying to do was send all the songs I have ever listened to on my iPod (four months old) to my Last.fm profile. It seems that it won't allow that because I have played tracks on the computer since playing tracks on the iPod and it won't accept tracks with a time prior to the most recently submitted track (or something like that). Not a big deal I guess.

  6. What program do you use to get the tracks you listen to on your iPod onto your Last.fm profile? I have heard of the following ones:






    I installed jscrob2 but cannot get it to work despite reading through a 26 page thread about it on the Last.fm forum. Before wasting anymore time, I wanted to see if you guys had any luck with it (and any great tips that I might be overlooking) or another program. Thanks.

  7. These are the only ones I've listened to enough to say much (in some rough order):


    Wilco - Sky Blue Sky

    Andrew Bird -Armchair Apocrypha

    Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Some Loud Thunder

    Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank

    The Arcade Fire - Neon Bible

    The Shins - Wincing the Night Away

    Voxtrot - Voxtrot

    David Vandervelde - The Moonstation House Band EP

    Son Volt - The Search

    Calla - Strength In Numbers

    Amy Winehouse - Back to Black

    Joss Stone - Introducing Joss Stone

    The Good, The Bad & The Queen - The Good, The Bad & The Queen

    Ted Leo & The Pharmacists - Living With the Living


    I admit being totally biased on putting Wilco first, but I guess that makes this my favorites and not my opinion of the best. I could see the Arcade Fire disc moving up, but it still isn't hitting me like it seems to be many other around here (and lots of critics apparently). I'm sure there are some I'm forgetting and lots more I haven't gotten around to yet.

  8. There is already a thread on trouble logging in but I think I have narrowed down the source of my problem (different from that one), so I started a new thread. I visit the site from home and from my office, but when I first visit at the office after having browsed from home, I have to log in. Then when I return home, I have to log in again. I also have problems with posts appearing as new again even though I've read them and that coincides with browsing from the office after having logged in again. I have deleted the cookies from the board via the button the main page and via my browser directly (I use Opera). I have cleared my cache also. Neither helps. The problem seems to only occur with the change in location and started with the most recent upgrade. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks for all you do, Solace.
