Pestilence - consuming impulse

Asphyx - the rack

Thanatos - emerging from the netherworlds

Hail Of Bullets - of frost and war

misfits - boxset

DRI - dirty rotten EP

DRI - full speed ahead

Exploited - beat the bastards

Malevolent Creation - fine art of murder

I usually format 80min discs in hi-md mode.

I also always have each disc with a different band labeled on it and stuff the disc with as many albums by the band that I can.

I am listening to my own live recording of Leonard Cohen's first concert at the Olympia, in Paris. I was 13. The concert was transmitted by the French radio Europe 1 in a show called "Campus spécial", presented by Michel Lancelot. I recorded it on cassette with a microphone placed in front of my receiver, the 12th of May 1970. Leonard sings a rare song in Yiddish or Hebrew: "Un As der Rebbe Singt".

Thank you for the tip.

These days, I have been listening to a live recording of Ismaël Isaac, a reggae artist from Ivory Coast. I have bought all his CD's since I discovered him in 1990.

Great, I LOVE the prodigy's older stuff, it's the ultimate music to just get pumped up and excited! Glad to hear they're still on the right track, gonna have to listen to this.

I'm currently in love with Amadou & Mariam's "welcome to mali", think traditional mali music + guitar and synths. It's a really happy album.

listening to a copy of Yoga/Mtv - and it is putting me to sleep - this needs a Rayzray remix - like heavy metal music over their audio -

footnote # 67 - when i do remixong - i (rayzray) ALWAYS use MD's inbetween this and that -

This is exactly why I'm gonna start hoarding media and move my portable music listening back to the 80 minute MDs, MDLP at most. Yes, you have to record in real time, but the act of getting new music is much easier now than it was before - a few clicks and it's downloaded. My point is that the music experience is getting too easy, and there is too much choice. It may sound crazy, but since I started using MP3 players my appreciation for music has gone way down, to the point where I preferred listening to the sounds of the street rather than my own music. 20 gigs on an ipod and it was a pain in the arse just deciding WHAT to choose to listen to! Too much choice.

Now when I burn an MD, I'm waiting excitedly like a little child for it to finish, and when I finally get to listen it's very rewarding, and I appreciate the music more and get a lot more out of it (MD forces you to listen to the same things more often, too!)

Music is not about how many songs you can fit in your pocket. It's about how much you get out of each song. MDs have soul, and it shows.

PS. I'm listening to Mew now - "and the glass handed kites". It's a little progressive and demands all of your attention. Gotta listen more before judging..

sorry it took so song to reply - like i can only get on MDCF on one of my 4 PC's - and it's always busy doing jrojects -!!>>!!

i just FINISHED that project a few minutes ago - lol - i would say WAY over 20 ours !! but it is fruitful - i am getting about 80 songs i didn't have - all house-techno and trance - i am in seventh heaven - and the "Work" involved like you said makes it that more FUNNER and more funner-

well - i will cherish these songs forever - and play them on my Zune over and over - well - until the "Next Project" !!
