1241  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [P] Kerry documentry before the election on: October 13, 2004, 03:30:47 PM
Quote from: "Eco-Logic"
They offered Kerry equal time to come on after the movie to rebute it.   That is all they have to do.  Kerry's decision not to is his own stupid fault.


If hypothetically, a documentary aired on Bush's cocaine-using, drunk-driving, draft-dodgling past, do you think he'd want to come on afterwards to rebute it? The mere presence of a candidate attempting to refute the "facts" of the documentary provides an air of legitimacy to the charges and casts the candidate in a defensive light.

Quote from: "Grievous Angel"
Capt. Caveman, I've gotten to hear a couple Bobby Bare Jr. tracks now, and I'm kinda digging them. I definitely like it better than when he was going for a hard rock sound. "Strange Bird" and "Your Favorite Hat" are the tracks, I believe. How are those songs in relation tot he rest of the record?


They are a good representation of the sound of the rest of the album, but definitely not my favorite tracks. If you like them, though, I'm pretty certain you'll love the entire disc.... I assume by "hard rock sound" you are referring to his band, Bare Jr.? As you probably gathered from the sampler, the songs on his two solo albums are very different in sound. They focus much more on a more stripped down rootsy sound that better showcase his unique songwriting skill.

Cool! Which album(s) did you end up getting?  
 


I went with your recommendation and got "Out of Tune". I'm liking it so much, though, that I'm sure I'll be picking up their other albums soon.

Well, I can't say I'm not disappointed, but like many have said, this is your site to do with how you wish, and I thank you for considering the requested changes.

I think I speak for a lot of R&P posters/lurkers when I say that my biggest concern is losing access to a community that I greatly valued. Of course it's not your obligation to establish such a residency in the wake of GG's apparent demise, but for most of us, CG appeared to be our best chance to continue our little world with the community in tact.

My occasional trips to the GG forum became much more frequent when I realized that this community was more substanitive than any other I had encountered on the net. Soon, GG was the first place I turned to share my thoughts, exchange ideas, and discuss current events. Like any group of friends, we talked about all sorts of things: games, girls, movies, and yes, politics.

I understand that CG is different than GG and is allowed to dictate how the forums are created and conducted. All I can do is make it known that I found the R&P forum on GG to be, for the most part, civil, mature and informative, and I'd love to continue that relationship here.

If, God forbid, something like 9/11 ever happened again, I would hope that I could turn to this community I value and trust to come to terms with the event. It would seem kinda strange to me to have a gathering place for a group of friends like this and not be able to talk about some of the most salient issues of the day.

But then again, not my decision.  smile
1253  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / EVERYONE READ PLEASE on: October 12, 2004, 03:18:51 PM
I agree with the all the sentiments here that the CG staff has been extremely hospitable and welcoming.

I would just like to say for the record that would miss R&P if it weren't allowed here.  The argument that there are plenty of other places on the net to discuss politics doesn't really hold water with me, because it wasn't simply the political topics that I found interesting, but rather it was the opinions of this specific collection of people that drew me in. GG had a strong community (as CG does now) of amazing and diverse individuals, and the assembly of these various persepectives led to some very enlightening discussions in the R&P forum. Believe it or not, some of these discussions have honed my thinking about certain issues, challenged me to think more critically, and helped me come to understand that others can hold opinions that are simultaneously very different yet still equally as valid as my own. I respect the thoughts of many of my fellow GGers, and it'd be a shame if I lost access to their perspectives on more serious topics.

Funny you should mention it... During my usual net sleuthing, I discovered this fine item just a few days ago. Unfortunately, I was unable to acquire said item due to its owner leaving my presence before I could obtain it.  smile

I did, however, get a collection of Ryan Adam's early recordings. Rough quality stuff, but still quite good. How's the Lazy Stars material?

Maybe I'm in the minority on this one, but I found many threads in the R&P forum at GG to be quite mature and intellectually stimulating. I have great respect for the articulate and intelligent musings of many of GG's regular posters, and I'd hate to lose access to that.

Of course, I understand it's not my decision...

"Kate Botello, Hot Or Not" may have been the time I laughed the hardest at GG.  I've never really watched Tech TV, and had no idea who the heck she was, but the rapidfire responses of Morton (pro-hot) and Simon (con-hot) were amazingly funny.


I present to you, the archive of that thread

Gotta pimp this CD one last time. I bought it months ago, listened to it non-stop for a couple of weeks, then put it on the shelf after purchasing some newer music. Recently, however, I pulled it out again and it hasn't left my player since. Allmusic.com summarizes the album thusly:

Quote
The singer/songwriter brings a variety of influences to his rock & roll — influences ranging from blues and Memphis soul to punk to country, and that country influence isn't surprising when you consider that his father is country star Bobby Bare Sr. But the younger Bare is hardly a carbon copy of his famous dad; while Bare Sr.'s name is synonymous with country, Bare Jr. is primarily a rocker with country influences. At times, From the End of Your Leash can be a little too self-indulgent for its own good, but that's only a minor problem — one that is easily outweighed by the warmth, humanity, and soulfulness that Bare Jr. brings to this generally memorable CD.


Dig in and thank me later.

One of my favorite memories was someone who posted a thread entitled "Bathroom Behavior (is this odd?)".  He talked about using the urinals, and flushing them before he was finished, then trying to race to beat the flush to finish.  Then a bunch of other people posted in the thread that they did that too.  And I thought it was just some weird, maladjusted behavior that I engaged in every once in a while.

That was the moment I truly realized that I am indeed a member of a Brotherhood of Man here on this planet  :lol:


I am grateful that I could, in my own small way, bring the community closer together.  smile

Most of my posts were done in EBG, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy lurking in R&P. In between the occasional trollish posts, there were many well-argued and enlightening discussions on topics ranging from evolution to the war in Iraq to the hottness factor of the presidential candidate's daughters. I'd hate to lose access to all the interesting perspectives I encountered in R&P.
