  1. TwinSisterMoon - The Hollow Mountain http://www.mediafire.com/?aaljamjyigl Bibio - Ovals And Emeralds http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?2jnutldwdzj Ducktails - s/t http://www.mediafire.com/?m5klynmmjdz I've been listening to a lot of psych/drone or whatever lately. This Ducktails album is a really good intro to that genre. Much more accessible than most. The "Friends" track on there is the heat.

    Make a playlist

    I made this mix because I was bored at work the other day. I rarely make mixes but I thought this one turned out alright. I wanted to make something pretty danceable. Frankie Knuckles - Your Love Oukast - Roses Hercules and Love Affair - Hercules Theme Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Electricity Boards of Canada - Nlogax Phoenix - 1901 Michael Jackson - Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough Mark Morrison - Return of the Mack M83 - Couleurs Kanye West - Flashing Lights Young Jeezy - My President

    Eugenics Good?

    For the classic "eugenics good" argument, see Plato's Republic, Book V.
  5. Picked up a new cartridge yesterday and my turntable is now in operation! I have finally been able to listen to my Warren Zevon and Supertramp again. I'm trying to decide if I want to buy Chocolate and Cheese or Pure Guava.
  6. I'd pick SMiLE as being about 3x better than Pet Sounds.
  7. audio-technica is the brand I like for turntables. And you can listen to "The Wall" that same exact way if you have a gapless rip of the CD. I finally got around to ordering a new cartridge for my turntable online. This place has great deals and tons of stuff from real cheap beginners items to top of the line stuff. Good resource too. http://www.needledoctor.com
  8. My internet was being sketchy and I would hit submit post and my browser would sit there trying to communicate for minutes on end. I think I'll vote for Faulkner, but Melville was a close second. As were Henry Miller and DFW.
  9. No Henry James? Not that I think he is the best; I would certainly have trouble deciding that, I just feel like he ought to be included.
  10. Grado Labs makes a good headphone for about $70. Most people that own them love them, and they are perfect if you are not looking into investing in an amplifier for your cans. The SR60: http://www.gradolabs.com/frameset_main.htm
  11. The Beatles White Album is great on vinyl. I have two copies, one of them being the white pressing. Sweet.
  12. I discovered a new method for getting music a while ago. Go to google and click advanced search. Search for the artist name and album title and where it says "search within a site or domain" type blogspot.com. Lots of people have music blogs hosted by blogspot, and chances are the music you are looking for has already been posted to the net and blogged about.

    When Nietzsche Wept

    The scene where Freud psychoanalyzes Nietzsche about the moment Nietzsche thought of the eternal return is priceless only in the way that making a movie (based on a novel) about a philosopher could be.
  14. I'd recommend some Camera Obscura if you don't have anything by them. My favorite album is "Underachievers Please Try Harder". You probably already have it, but Deerhunter's "Cyrptograms" is pretty excellent. Laura Marling's "Alas I Cannot Swim" is another good one if you do like the female singer-songwriter types. "The Hawk Is Burning" by Mogwai is interesting too. I don't know if any of these are quality recommendations. Some of them are pretty old, but this is pretty much what I have been playing a lot lately. This and a lot of Camper Van Beethoven.
