    What You Think is The Best Intro in a Song!

    POD - Southtown The transition when they finally hit it makes the song. This is first one that popped into my head when I saw the title, but my memory has been jogged by so many good calls.

    Most influencial musician of all time?

    Top 5 songs to play at your funeral.

    This one should depend on the manner in which one dies as well Saturday Night Special by skynyrd and Baby Got Back by Sir Mixalot would be appopriate if I get shot because I was caught in an affair. Flying High Again by Ozzy if I die in most any manner involving drugs and high velocities...

    Greatest Grunge Vocalist Ever - Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell, ... ?

    Quote: Originally Posted by roadtonowhere08 I voted Eddie Vedder. He may not have the best vocals, but since this is a "Greatest" poll, he is the only one that is alive and/or does not suck today (I'm looking at you, Mr. Cornell, one of the best cases of "what could have been..."). I...

    Slow but hard rock without vocals

    Good cd stores in DC / Baltimore area?

    There's a decent size place in College Park just north of UMD on Rt 1 just after 193 or so. It's big and seemed to have a decent selection when I went in there. I think there's a handful of Record and Tape Traders around, but don't know if they're any good or where.

    The Nine Inch Nails discussion thread

    Nope, nobody on head-fi likes NIN. Not one. Everybody above and below is lying to you because they also dislike people who like NIN. I've heard about a guy who listened to Downward Spiral then went out and killed his whole family. Something about Hurt. Move along now and listen to some...

    What Musical Skill Would You Want?

    The ability to beat the rap for hooking up with underage girls? I guess that's more music related not musical... Ability to evoke emotion with a guitar (besides annoyance...). I mean one can be technically very good, but not able to really speak with your instrument. With that said, I need to...
  13. PachmanP's Music Torture "Hit List"

    They probably played whatever they had on their ipods. My understanding (which is limited) of the thing was that it was very loud and round the clock with that being the mode of torture. I mean the only theme's I can really see are America/USA and a few with lyrics that are a little lewd or...

    FLAC...Better Quality or More Flaws?

    Low grade hiss with the flac but not the mp3 sounds like something is wrong. Have you tried several albums? Maybe you have one that did have crappy quality or something. How does the straight CD sound? This is probably a dumb question, but you didn't just convert the mp3's into flac, right...

    Recommend Hard Rock Bands

    Nobody has suggested Slipknot?! With "Wait and Bleed" being my fav song off their self-titled album. System of a Down should be on your list with maybe the albums Toxicity and Steal This Album being the first ones to take a look at. "Chop Suey" if you need a particular song. Mabye the band...

    Looking for closed cans with circumaural design

    The sennhieser (sp?) hd280 pros have really good isolation. Used them on airplanes and subways without much trouble, and I keep my music volume pretty low. That said they and probably most circumaural cans tend to be goofy big, and iems are easier to deal with (well except for occasionally...

    whats a good sq portable source from 07..08 ?

    Cowon D2 maybe. Should be getting a little long in the tooth, and it has pretty good sq and very little/no hiss. It also behaves like an external usb drive, so it should just plug right in.

    Magnatune is offering download memberships-Unlimited music for $18 month

    This sounds like a pretty sweet thing going on. I wonder though how frequently they add new music because it might not be worth staying month to month after you dl everything they have that is interesting unless they add enough new stuff that it would be cost effective to go unlimited vs pay 5...
