    Yes, thanks DNM. I saw another one of these Pocket Operator videos hosted by Yuri Wong (the guy from the "I'm a Dude" demonstration with OP-1) where he demonstrate 2-3 models. Seems they have upwards of 9 different Pocket Operators, so naturally one would want all 9, right?

    Never really paid much attention to this thread, as the feeling of relative youth led me to assume that the music I like would be out of place.
    Some of the dub that I heard at Burning Man was great party music, especially when one is "feeling strange"..
    I've got quite a range depending on my mood. Though at some point I began to turn away from music with negative lyrics... poor me, sad, angry, destructive etc etc all had to go!
    Tools Lateralus album is a favorite of mine.
    Classical music I play for my kids often, as I'm trying to create a solid musical base. My 3yr old loves Italian opera, it's her favorite! Female singers, she sings along, and it's the sweetest sound that I've ever heard.

    Thanks for the recommendation, MikeT. Tool refuses to consider streaming revenue, so Tidal has nothing from them.

    I loved Undertow so looks like I have to put Lateralus on the wish list.

    Hey right on man!
    I'll have to warn you..
    Many Tool fans from earlier, were not happy with Lateralus and 10000 Days albums. IMO these fans were stuck in the same pattern and could not vibe with the new sounds and attitude coming from this incredible band. Tool had progressed to a different level in their personal lives, and so their music reflected that, also their musical ability grew immensely and this too is reflected in their music.
    They are masters of build up and release. The music is also constructed in a way beyond the skills found by most. So even if one doesn't like the sound (I know I know, that's the point) a doctor of music would likely appreciate it's constructs.
    I left all my CDs on shore on accident and in the middle of the Pacific ocean found this album tucked away. Only music for months at sea, PERFECT album for epic journeys!
    Hooked ever since!

    I do enjoy Tool. Great music. It's 10,000 Fists BTW. But who cares. Ha. Ive been ro king the hard stuff for years. Got hooked when Black Sabbath was played for me the first time. Its not for everyone. But i then started to get into the more exotic/detailed side of metal by enjoying Rush. Then I found Dream Theater and it blew me away.
    So check them out too Mark. And Mike T., glad to know your a brother in Metal as well as the Blade.

    Since i started driving for this new company and they are so laid back, its much easier. No push or hurry hurry. They are happy with my abilities and dont rush me at all. So ive been changing to more of the classic rock stations. Who would have guessed the music i grew up with is now classic. Ha.

    Be sure to share some youtube vids of what you find in the rock line of music.

    BTW, in Dream Theater nobody has the right amount of strings on the guitars. Ha.

    You and me, Jerry. I even spent a few years as a drum roady. I got to set up the cage, position and tune the drums, for a band called Kidd Wicked.

    Miss the back stage stuff we did with the groupies.

    Oh Hell Yes! I for one know who the 'Texas Troubadour' was!

    Here's a song by a guy who at times can sound like ET and the songs about ET:

    Okay, it's been raining and foggy to beat all hell here all day (like every day this winter, alas). Somehow, if we're going dark, this seems appropriate:

    As far as I'm concerned, Black Sabbath were the founding fathers of metal. Funny-last week I was all about jazz. Some of us have pretty eclectic tastes, huh?
