Default The Music Banter Members Journals Weekly Update Thread, week-ending August 16 2015

First off, apologies to two members: I missed out updates for both YorkeDaddy's and Anteater/Unknown Soldier's journals so my humblest apologies. I forget things so easily, you know...

Yes, I completely missed US's review of Foreigner's first album in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...r-journal.html last week, so apologies for that --- blame it on my advancing dementia --- while this week his partner in journalism, Anteater, adds his contribution with an article on Ambrosia's self-titled debut.

Black Francis is having Azure Dreams in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ms-nes-ps.html

snd there's more from http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...s-edition.html with Masada and Rudiementary Peni

Fiddler's closing out old cases and sorting through files in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...es-patrol.html

Almost there! http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...63-2015-a.html reaches 2013 with Chance the Rapper, Run The Jewels, Danny Brown and Liz among others. Meanwhile, preparing for the closing of this journal, Goofle's opening a new one, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...oving-sec.html. Check it out.

Call in Superman to repair your computer, have some Lemon Jelly and find Paradise. Where else but http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nnerspace.html?

Ki's addiction to Team Fortress 2 seems to have passed, and now you'll find him hip-deep in Fallout 3, if you head down to http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...is-arcade.html --- just don't make any sudden moves! That guy is trigger happy!

In literally one second before the deadline, Pet_Sounds is enthusing over his love for baseball on http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...crap-heap.html --- and now he's gone to watch a game...

If you're interested in the prehistory of music, check out http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ory-music.html, or if your tastes run to something a little less demanding, TechnicLePanther can cater for that too, with http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-pop-flop.html and Wiz Khalifa on the chopping block.

I've tried to update a few of my other journals, now that the Marillion discography has come to an end, so in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-emporium.html we have more Spooks and The New Statesman, while The Hammers of Misfortune are featured in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...i-reviews.html and the second chapter of Watchmen makes its appearance in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...d-2000-ad.html. Finally, as promised, an intensive review of Iron Maiden's classic Powerslave is the first album reviewed as http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...e-you-die.html

The problem with

is that I'm conscious of trying all the time not to be awarding it to the same people. I mean, between them, Ki, Unknown Soldier and Innerspaceboy could alternate on scooping this each week, but I like to try to give everyone a chance. So although I could certainly have chosen ISB's hilarious article on dumping Windows for Linux, I decided instead to give the accolade to this:

the music is a bit slower for the most part....but is so drenched in despondency....it matches the lyrics of coping with ones own loss of sanity and discontent and misunderstanding of human beings so perfectly

i can honestly say i would have never gotten into punk music if not for this band....this is one of the first albums where i listened to the lyrics and allowed the music to be a representation of those feelings....which is exactly what i love about punk rock.....a perfect mix of lyrical expression that matches the music perfectly

on a personal note....when i first bought this album in the mid 90s i was smoking a lot of weed....in the town i lived in weed was a very social drug and usually involved neo hippies.....i would go to their houses buy my shit but they always wanted to hand out and get high (on my weed) and talk about their music.....i would always endure their jam band 60s bullshit and then after looking through their record collection say "hey can i choose next?"...they assumed i found some incredible album....but instead i would pull mine from my bag and play this....pointing out the specifics on the song "Radio Schizo"
And that's all we have time for this week.
See you in the funny papers!
Toodles!

Thanks to a Trojan discovered on my computer after a FIFTEEN HOUR search by MSE, a trojan that was slowing me to a crawl and turning my usual 200 mbps download speed to ****ing seven! I am therefore very late getting this update sorted, so let's get right down to it without further ado.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-oblivion.html and takes us into the update with “The Batlord's Top Ten Most Righteous Comic Book Discoveries of the Past Year, including The Ultimates, Injustice and of course Harley Quinn

while keeping totally current, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...s-edition.html gives us NWA's Straight Outta Compton and Jawbreaker's 24 Hour Revenge Therapy

and Jason DeRulo is this week's offering as http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...oving-sec.html

Innerspaceboy is genre-hopping and also listening to (and watching) The Sound of Noise in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nnerspace.html

Squidphysics, drum covers and screenshots --- as well as Dungeon Siege III, How To Survive and Rocket League down at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...is-arcade.html, and get ready for Horror Week, beginning September 1st!

Joe Colley and Jason Lescalleet are some of the http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...cking-out.html according to Occulthawk

Chapters 19, 20 AND 21 in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...rgy-story.html --- Oriphiel has been a busy bee this week!

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ory-music.html continues as TechnicLePanther explores tribal music, and The Weeknd is his http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-pop-flop.html this time out.

Havne't really looked at my current journals this week but that's because I've been largely concentrating on my new ones. In http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...e-you-die.html we have a deviation from the chronological order in order to oblige Frownland, who asked me to review Cattle Decapitation's Monolith of Inhumanity, and I did. I'll get you back for that, Frown! Then there's yet another new journal from me, as I open http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...heme-park.html, with the first theme being Autumn, and songs from Justin Hayward and John Coltrane up there already. More to come.

Accept's Metal Heart is at number 8 as Unknown Soldier continues http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...y-history.html through 1985.

As I say, I'm late getting this update done tonight so I'm going to cut it short, but I would be remiss if I did not award

to Oriphiel, for all his hard work on his journal. I know I could say the same about Ki, but I don't think he has any more room on his mantlepiece for more awards, and that left column is looking very shaky...

That's it for this week. See you in seven.
Till then,
Toodles!

Default The Music Banter Members Journals Weekly Update Thread, week-ending August 30 2015

Not, to be fair, a whole hell of a lot happening this month, and even my own contributions were hastily put together and posted this morning. Slow end to the month? It would seem so, but still, there's stuff to read about, so let's dive in.

Anteater is back to kick us off this week as he explores Equinox by Styx in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...r-journal.html

while bob continues to educate us to http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...s-edition.html with Kate Bush, Gorilla Biscuits and Death In June.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...es-patrol.html seem to have taken a left turn into the paranormal...

Moving day playlists, Soul Coughing, Echowaves ... there's just too much happening at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nnerspace.html for me to do it justice here. Go talk to innerspaceboy, he'll fill you in.

Don't bug Ki though with any questions. He's too busy playing Rocket League (yeah he's still at it) as well as talking about the games that disappointed him (Farming Simulator Ki? Really? Why didn't you just buy Virtual Paint Drying? ) and preparing for Horror Month, which is due to start in the next day or so down at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...is-arcade.html

Chapters 22 and 23 of http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...rgy-story.html are now up.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...listening.html is the question: Green Jelly is apparently the answer...

and the other question is http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-pop-flop.html as TechnicLePanther places Silento under the microscope.

Life on Mars finally returns in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-emporium.html while there's Death Valley Athletic Club and Kamelot in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...i-reviews.html, and more autumn-themed music in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...heme-park.html with Last Autumn's Dream and Hostsonaten.

Number seven in Unknown Soldier's countdown for 1985 is Icon, and you can hear it at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...y-history.html

Which brings us to the end of another update, the last one for August as it happens. Coming next week...

Till then,
Toodles!

I find it very inconsiderate that you would schedule Metal Month to coincide with when I actually started writing journal entries.

Instead of being a Smart ass why don't you do the weekly update to help Trollheart out, I'm sure you'd make everybody laugh here,

This sounds like a great idea.
