Re: The Random Alter Bridge Thread

So here's a random Alter Bridge thing. Had the radio on at work one day, and Rhianna's "Umbrella" was on. And I heard this little vocal run that sounded awful familiar... https://youtu.be/CvBfHwUxHIk Skip to the 3 minute mark, and listen to the notes when she sings "I'll be all you ne...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

You know, another thing about WTS that crossed my mind while listening to it again at work the other night -- do you think the sort of "stonewalled" sound that people complain about was intentional? Like, with the addition of the synth arrangements, maybe they were going for a little bit o...

Re: What grinds your gears?

What grinds my gears? I started out the year working on my health (as is tradition), been meticulously counting my calories, keeping a pretty hefty deficit every day, and I've managed to lose maybe 5-6 pounds total. Like, it should be falling off me, and it's not. I do my weekly weigh-in on Mondays,...

Re: The Official "Total Randomness" Thread

Social media kinda killed forums off, which is sad because forums have a nicely organized way of having threads devoted to certain topics. I guess Reddit comes close, but threads there don't stay nicely cataloged like they do here. On the plus side, we can have a nice, smaller, close-knit community ...

Re: The Fitness Thread

Your effort and progress is super impressive, man. That is amazing. Don't worry about the odd up and down. If you're generally trending in the right direction, yourt doing great. Thanks man. Perspective is important. :) The good news, I'm still down 90 pounds from that first picture, and I'll be 3 ...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

And I acknowledge that some people are really turned off by an album's production, but it breaks my heart when WTS is consistently listed as their "worst" album by other fans. You know the band hears that, and I'm sure it has some hand in how they approach future writing - and I don't want...

Re: The Fitness Thread

Weight check: kicking off the new year at 251.8 pounds. It's depressing. It wasn't that long ago (14 months) that I was holding onto the lowest weight range of my adult life, in the 200-210. I don't really know what changed, but the last couple months of last year, it jumped into the 220s, and even ...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

I must have some kind of Stockholm Syndrome or something, but Elvis is my favorite producer by far... If I had the money, I'd definitely ask him to produce my album. I'm probably the only one that feels this way though. Not at all! Or maybe the two of us are the only ones who feel that way (at leas...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

Is it strange that I actually love listening back to my own performances? I recently re-discovered that I had this show from 2014 up on Bandcamp, which I'd sort of intentionally forgotten about assuming it was terrible since it was within my first couple years of playing acoustic shows. Gave it a li...

Re: As we always say, “Keep smiling!”

About 10 years ago, two bands had massive influence on my musical taste: Alter Bridge and Stone Sour. Right now I'm relistening some Stone Sour songs and I'm really sad that this band will probably never come back together. 2 weeks ago I went to the 10 year anniversary of my graduating class (in Ge...

Re: Someone tell my sister to look at this post.

The bands that I've seen do drink colabs tend to be southern-rock (skewed) bands pairing up with whiskey/bourbon brands. I'm surprised to see Halestorm doing it but I guess they do have a country-leaning fanbase after the colab with Eric Church. AB doesn't seem like a whiskey band to me, but that's...
