    Calling all New Yorkers - good resource for (indie) concert listings in NY?

    Hey all, I'm going to be staying in New York for 2 or 3 weeks in December, and am excited to check out the music scene when I'm there. Where can I find a comprehensive listing of all the NY concerts? Ticketmaster and LiveNation are pretty much just the big shows, which don't really interest...

    in canada, in need of a grado 1/4 to 1/8 adapter

    I've been using one that I got at an electronics component store (Lee's Electronics on Main St. in Vancouver) that cost me $2 or $3. It's possible that one from Grado might be made with better quality materials, but probably not enough to warrant the order of magnitude in price difference when...

    New Sigur Ros album- free stream on!

    And I just wanted to add... Ara Batur is fantastic. One of their best songs yet, IMHO.

    New Sigur Ros album- free stream on!

    I'm a Sigur Ros nut too, and I love this album. My favourite album so far is Takk... and I think it still might be, but I've only listened to this one about 5 or so times, so it could grow. I definitely see what dgbiker says about the album feeling less cohesive than previous efforts. But I'm...

    Question: A watch with fixed hands and rotating faces?

    Hey fellow Head-Fiers, I'm looking for a specific watch and so naturally, I came to the all-knowledgeable Head-Fi for answers. I saw this one at the Vancouver Art Gallery a couple years ago, never bought it, and have regretted it since. Here is my description of what it looked like: The...

    I am absolutely AMAZED that no one here has mentioned Dinosaur Comics. I also want to mention Copper, and second xkcd, perry bible fellowship, and cyanide & happiness.

    Has Anyone seen "Blades of Glory" yet?

    "The Office" appreciation thread

    I can't wait til Thursday. Not only for the Office, but also for my other favourite show on TV right now: 30 Rock (Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin) Thursday's episode is going to be especially great, because it guest stars Will Arnett (GOB from Arrested Development, also Blades of Glory.) The preview...

    Looking for a computer desk similar to this.

    I'm in the market for a computer desk, and these Jerker desks from Ikea look quite nice: minimalist, clean design, open design on the bottom, solid feel, enough space for everything. The only thing I don't like is that it is actually *too* big for me, especially in depth. I want something...

    Any Other Arrested Development Junkies?

    When Michael tries to interrogate George Michael about buying pot from GOB: Michael: Your uncle GOB said he saw you down at the docks today. George Michael: *laughs nervously* Maybe it was the other George Michael, you know, the singer-songwriter. Hehe. Michael: Yeah, that makes sense.

    Any good world map desktop wallpapers?

    So I admit it: I am terrible with geography. I figure the easiest way to fix this is by having a world map for a desktop background. I searched Google and can only find a couple decent political world maps that suits my resolution (1680 x 1050) or over, and when i set them as wallpaper, they are...
