    epic songs

    I can't believe no one has mentioned:   Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms   Or for something a little lighter:   The Decemberists - The Mariner's Revenge Song   The Decemberists have several tracks I believe qualify as "epic", especially on The Crane Wife.

    What would you name your band?

    I thought of this one a few days ago:   Attack Ships on Fire off the Shoulder of Orion   Our fans will know us as ASFSO or probably just Attack Ships. Clearly we will play some fairly nerdy Indie Alt-Folk rock (whatever that means).

    Official Team BEER-FI (Beer Appreciation Thread!)

    I tried Rogue's American Amber Ale and Blue Point's Spring Fling Ale tonight. Both were quite drinkable and enjoyable, but I believe that I am officially done with American ales. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the common denominator between most American ales is a musty flavor that I...

    Bicycle Question but not Bicycle-Fi

    In the final sprint of last year's Tour de France, Mark Cavendish supposedly hit around 75 kph after a good lead in. That's over 46 mph and on a flat road. He's one of the fastest guys on the planet for those sprints. You can go way faster on a downhill.

    Audio T-Shirts

    Believe it or not, Target often has audio related t-shirts that can be pretty cool. I've bought a few of them. And they are usually between 10 and 15 dollars.

    Lady GaGa

    While I do feel that she is part of what's wrong with today's music industry, and most of me wants to hate her... She is talented isn't she? I mean, she appears to be creating a new pop sound that's unique and identifiable. Not to mention her horrible horrible songs are ridiculously catchy and...

    Anyone walk through a major blizzard?

    I went to school on lake Ontario in Oswego so you pretty much described day to day life from November to April. It's an experience.

    some really bad SMD soldering (example)

    I would say it was most definitely not intentional judging from the workmanship on the rest of the board. Also, I can't think of a real reason why you would do that and no I don't think the placement is symmetrical.
