Liquor and Music - Page 2

post #16 of 24

Absolutely. I love drinking a bit of something and listening to music. I'm a smoker as well, and love smoking either cigarettes or a pipe with music too. But that's another thread.

 

But, I remember a week ago I was listening to Coltrane, and Equinox came on. I was a few beers in, and honestly, I sat there just fully absorbed in every note. I must've looked like a clown to someone else, my face was probably a bit droopy and my eyes were probably who knows where. But I was following every note. It was like I was hearing it for the first time.

Anyone have observations on how different drinks affect the way the music sounds? For instance when I drink absinthe or wine, the music seems to have sound much different than when I'm drinking beer or whiskey. Part of my theory that different types of alcohol get you drunk in different ways.

Maybe I'll try tequila next weekend and let you know how it goes. Being drunk off of hard alcohol always makes me feel different than beer. For some reason liquor always makes my face really warm.

The other interesting thing is how some types of hard stuff can make people belligerent. Cold gin has a way of making people hostile.eek.gif

 

Always a good idea to change-up what you drink. If you have been drinking vodka switch to whiskey. Beer is maybe the best for Heavy Metal.

 

Remy Martin is by far the thing that always got me 5150, that and when Yager was different in 1999. They changed the recipe that year. 

 

White wine has to be the most overrated drink there is. Where I live it's $20 a bottle, way more than whiskey!

At home I spent some of my favorite times listening to headphones and drinking beer. Anymore though I find it very hard to really get drunk. It is one of these things where I like to be in control all the time and after too much drinking I start to feel that I'm loosing control so I slow down. 

 

The great part about moderation is I don't have hangovers anymore. I still enjoy drinking but end up limiting myself.

 

There is almost a place you can get to straight which is 50% of where you are listening to music drinking. That practice is to get yourself to a slightly altered mental state with no drinking. It takes practice, but  in the end there is no replacement to how someone feels when they are in "the zone" after a substantial amount of drinks.beerchug.gif

 

Love the first sentence. I definitely like a drink or two to relax with a good recording (I like beer, but I find Scotch is my drink of choice for relaxing with phones on, sometime a Rusty Nail.)

 

On a related note, I recently underwent shoulder surgery. During my recovery at home, I discovered that Pink Floyd goes especially with Vicodin. (WYWH in particular) wink_face.gif

Somehow it doesn't surprise me that vicodin compliments Pink Floyd...

Jman....your attraction to older music may be due to recording techniques. Most stuff done in the 60's and early 70's was done without any loudness compensation....more a straight recording with little to no "enhancements" Newer stuff sounds more present out of a car stereo or cheap home rig but with headphones it can be overwelming. I find doobie bros and steely dan with headphones amazing. It is here you can pick out suttle detail unheard with most home stereos and the overall sound is not as much "in your face". Another older artist I recommend is Al Stewert....Year Of The Cat is a masterpiece recording in my opinion, and try Eagles Desperado. Happy Listening and bottoms up....hic!
