hey everyone i wanted to make this topic to discuss the major things in music that have been happening lately. what's your favorite band? favorite album? favorite song?


and just some conversation starters

what do you think of the new AC/DC album Black Ice? new Metallica album Death Magnetic? new Killers album due to come out in November?


Pretty much whatever about non-marching/concert band music.


(not that i don't enjoy marching/concert band stuff)

I love Ben Folds (Five). Also a pretty big fan of Weezer. I'll listen to almost anything once, really.


I'm more into comedy albums and audiobooks than anything else. David Sedaris is by far the funniest author ever. If you've ever read any of his books, you have to get the audiobooks somehow.


Patton Oswalt, Lewis Black, Jim Gaffigan are some of my favorite comedians.



Shocking isn't it? I do listen to music other than classical and marching band/drum corps.. :o

Favorite Artist: Probably Radiohead or Belle & Sebastian or Interpol

Favorite Album: Either OK Computer or In Rainbows by Radiohead or Antics by Interpol

Favorite Song: Couldn't pick just one.

The Top 3 Most played songs on my iPod are "La Valse d'Amelie (Orchestra)" from the movie Amelie, "Miranda" by Michael Nyman (PCEP 2006, 2nd Mvt.), and "These Days" by Nico (from The Royal Tenenbaums). But I like everything :)


I mostly listen to acoustic/folk rock, experimental stuff, and movie scores by Philip Glass and Michael Nyman.

2.) Turbine-John Mackey

3.) Annuals mvt. 2-John Mackey

4.) Harrison's Dream-Peter Graham
