Cool catch from the Pitchfork best of the year list. I little bit of the emo punk of the early 2000's (the good kind) and 90's indie/alt rock.





Went with the live vids because of the sweet buccos shirt.

Not that Pink as far as I am aware ever recorded a remotely interesting song, but where Rihanna and Alicia Keys at least manage to annoy me, Pink's new single is just exceptionally dull and bland even by her modest standards. Maybe that is the truth about love?

So I figured I'd ask this question in this thread - I finally updated my iTunes version to 11.0.1.12. I see it has a cool Visualizer that is reminiscent of the old WinAmp visualizers, but I miss my album artwork coverflow - the classic iTunes view. Playing with the View menu options and a quick iTunes Help search doesn't suggest the album artwork flow view is available anymore when playing from the 'Song' list in the library. The album artwork is shown in a small little window next to the 'Now Playing' info, but not the large album artwork flow view that was available in older iTunes. Anyone with newer iTunes know if this is available or confirm that it is no longer available?

Edit - Nevermind, apparently they did nix the coverflow

F'n Apple.

Boo. I understand it wasn't functional to visually sort through thousands of songs/albums, but I'm a music geek who liked the aesthetic of seeing the original album artwork, especially for those classic albums. So much so, that I went in and changed the artwork of songs I got from 'greatest hits' compilations to those from their original albums. :oops:

Well, you can still see the artwork, just not with cover flow. I wasted many an hour adding or changing covers.

Got a new iMac today and correcting lots of ID3 tags from my collection.
I will make some sense of it all eventually.

And, yes, coverflow appears to be gone.

Heh, I thought thom yorke ruined this with his vocals. He used to be able to move mountains with his voice. He lost it sometime around hail to the thief.

Ministry Guitarist Mike Scaccia Dies After Onstage Collapse

Mike Scaccia, the guitarist for Ministry and Rigor Mortis, died on Saturday night at the age of 47. Scaccia was performing onstage at the Rail Club in Fort Worth, Texas, as part of a 50th birthday celebration for Rigor Mortis singer Bruce Corbitt, when he collapsed. Shortly afterwards, he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The medical examiner listed the cause of death as a sudden heart attack brought on by heart disease, the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports. Earlier accounts, including one from the rock blog Blabbermouth.net, attributed the collapse to a seizure and noted that Scaccia had reportedly asked for the strobe lights in the club to be turned off during the performance moments before he fell.

Scaccia was born in Babylon, New York, on July 14th, 1965, and formed thrash metallists Rigor Mortis in 1983. Six years later, the guitarist was invited by Al Jourgensen to join Ministry

I can't explain it, but I've been on a huge NOFX kick. Also for people who are into the inner workings of what it takes to put a concert on. Fuse has a show called Warped Tour Roadies. Good show.....

Nothing wrong with that. I went through a phase a few months ago where I dove back into all of my NOFX and Bad Brains albums, completely out of the blue.

NOFX is very hit and miss with me. Last time I started listening to them was when this song was in NHL 2k9
