    I love how you threw in the BYU Marching Band in the thick of all those hard core bands. It sure makes me feels special!

    Ye Freaking Gawds, somebody else who goes for creative music and not top 40 :)

    I'm there with Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, the 2nd half of Demons and Wizards (I think Hansi was drunk and slowly sobering up the recording day), Jag Panzer, Rhapsody, Therion, Symphony X, Ynwgie, Nightwish, and Manowar. I've been meaning to get into Vision Divine, Kamelot, After Forever, and more of the Prog scene.

    Glad to meet you Insanitys_Crescendo.

    Spoo:
    First of all, the greatest Aquabats! song of all time is Powdered MILK Man, not Powdered Toast Man.

    Second,
    I'm a big fan of ALL of the Aquabats stuff (Not just under one huge blanket, but by critique of every single song), but feel that their The Aquabats Vs. The Floating Eye of Death is the pinnacle of the rock-out-ness. It's got a very more mature sound.

    Basically, The Aquabats make you feel happy when you're sad, yet can still touch you with some of their more serious stuff.

    For instance, I share a special bond with the song, Chemical Bomb. Why? Because I listened to it right before I discovered what was happening on September 11th. It's quite a resonant song in that context.



    By the way, Herbie Hancock is coming soon with an all-star combo! Anybody else going?

    Hey! They Might Be Giants isn't Top 40! I'm somewhat cultured (or should I say uncultured). I also like Trio and Yello, but nobody's heard of 'em, really. Yello plays the song "Oh Yeah" in Ferric Bueller's day off...

    Nice to meet you as well VoidDancer.
    It's not very often I get the chance to meet someone with similar musical tastes. You should check out Elvenking. They are medieval folk metal. Their webpage is www.elvenking.net Their guitarist is really nice. He signs albums for me and gives me discounts on shirts and cd's in return for anime pictures that I draw for him. It's pretty cool. I'm also pretty stuck on Dark Tranquillity's new album, Damage Done.

    Hey I_C, do you like Dixie Dreggs? Or Steve Morse? I saw him at the Zephyer a few years back. I am a big fan.
    Oh yeah, I have seen They might be giants over 10 times! I never realized how lame I was until I said that.

    I downloaded Powdered Milk Man, and found it hilarious. Thanks for the heads up.

    I haven't really heard Steve Morse but I do like the Dixie Dreggs. I believe Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater used to play for them. He's freaking amazing. He'd have to be to get a full ride scholarship to Juilliard when he was 9. If you haven't heard Dream Theater, check them out. I saw them in Denver about 8 months ago. It was awesome.

    I like Dream Theater. They are amazing live, that is for sure.
    Steve Morse is AMAZING. If you don't check him out soon you are killing time, that you could be loving! Wow, I sound kinda stupid sometimes....

    There's nothing stupid about music if you mean it :) You should have heard me after I discovered Jag Panzer and their Thane to the Throne album. Once I discovered what it was, a custom version of the entire play of MacBeth by a metal group, I wouldn't shut up over it :)

    I meant the phrases I was using. I felt kinda stupid cause I don't really type or speak like that....But thanks!
    Also, for anyone who cares, I am playing a show at Papa Lee's on University Ave. on Dec. 2, at 9:00pm. Instrumental Acoustic indie stuff...woah, shameless promotion? I had better quit while I am ahead.

    I agree Void, Thane to the Throne truly is a great album. I especially liked the last track, Tragedy of Macbeth. If you haven't already, you should check out their newest album Mechanized Warfare. It's not as good as Thane to the Throne, but it's pretty good.

    Mechanized warfare didn't touch me as much. I also have The Age of Mastery and The Fourth Judgement, for some reason Thane to the Throne is the only one I love of their work.

    Just found out there is a Blind Guardian/Symphony X concert this weekend in San Diego that I'm going to try and make.

    I am sooooo envious. I wanted to go to that concert very badly. Alas, I had no means of transportation and so I couldn't go. Symphony X and Blind Guardian are both awesome bands. Symphony X's new album, the Odyssey, is superb. Especially the title track.
