Do you get DSL and fast stuff like that where you are? And if not, where are you? I still bet I have slowest connection of anyone here: 16.8K (14.4 or 12.0 on a bad day). (Actually, on a bad day, no dial tone.)
I dont know what I would do if I didnt have a cable modem,

well, I would probably go out more.


but waiting more than 2-3 secs for a page to completely load, the horror.
fuck you :fuming: :fuming: :fuming:
dont be that way, baby

seriously, how long does it take for one page to load for you, 10-15 secs, longer?

I agree that it sucks.

Plus I use my comp constantly for various bits of pop culture, movies comics, music, etc....

can you not get a cable modem in south africa?

or is it a local problem or is it just too fucking expensive?

Oh, um, well, it's not *that* bad. My dialup has been moody-as-fuck lately, but we can't get DSL in my neighbourhood yet I don't think... or maybe it's ISDN. I can never remember. *shrugs* Anyway, whatever one we can get, we can't afford. So *shrugs again*.

WinMX. It rules.


Although, I could not find any Alix Olsen there. Beyelzu, we gotta talk, man.
try now

and its alix olson, sry if I fucked that up earlier in the thread.


I updated my shared crap on winmx so you should be able to find it.

after ripping the cd I didnt bother actually renaming the files and so you will have to deal with track numbers, but make sure you get track 1, 7 and 22.

although its all pretty good.

Earlier, August and Everything After (Counting Crows).

Now, Waiting for Cousteau (Jean-Michel Jarre, 1990). 47 minutes of a very simple melody at about 2bpm backed with whale noises and oceanic creaks. I think he may have set off some of the new age music crap - but this was still experimental. Works for relaxation.

Well we know where we’re going
But we don’t know where we’ve been
And we know what we’re knowing
But we can’t say what we’ve seen
And we’re not little children
And we know what we want
And the future is certain
Give us time to work it out


One of those songs that, when I'm listening to it, I think this is the greatest song ever.

Thumbup Re: One of those 'Wat'cha Listenin' To?' threads.

I'm kicking back in the arcade while listening to Philosophy: The Best of Bill Hicks.

Funny as hell, but a little manically aggressive in places; which in my current laidback mood is a bit OTT. Still has me laughing heartily at his brutal perspectives and his almost wistful insights, though. Good stuff.

:cool:

Lazy Boy, Underwear goes inside the pants.

It's a great rant. Fucking excellent rant. Who is this guy? His voice sounds familiar...

Editing in the rant lyric:

Why is marijuana not legal? Why is marijuana not legal?
It’s a natural plant that grows in the dirt.
Do you know what’s not natural?
80 year old dudes with hard-ons. That’s not natural.
But we got pills for that.
We’re dedicating all our medical resources to keeping the old guys erect,
but we’re putting people in jail for something that grows in the dirt?

You know we have more prescription drugs now.
Every commercial that comes on TV is a prescription drug ad.
I can’t watch TV for four minutes without thinking I have five serious diseases.
Like: “Do you ever wake up tired in the morning?”
Oh my god I have this, write this down. Whatever it is, I have it.
Half the time I don’t even know what the commercial is…
people running in fields or flying kites or swimming in the ocean.
I’m like that is the greatest disease ever. How do you get that?
That disease comes with a hot chick and a puppy.

The schools now… It is all about self-esteem in the schools now.
Build the kids’ self-esteem, make them feel good about themselves.
If everybody grows up with high self-esteem, who is going to dance in our strip clubs?
What’s going to happen to our porno industry?
These women don’t just grown on trees.
It takes lots of drunk daddys missing dance recitals before you decide to blow a goat on the internet for fifty bucks.
And if that disappears, where does that leave me on a Friday night with my new high speed connection?

CHORUS: baby sing, sing, sing, sing, sing your song,
sing for me,com'mon now sing, baby sing sing sing, sing your song,
sing to me, sing a song

Masterminds are another word that comes up all the time.
You keep hearing about these terrorists masterminds that get killed in the middle east.
Terrorists masterminds.
Mastermind is sort of a lofty way to describe what these guys do, don’t you think?
They’re not masterminds.
“OK, you take bomb, right? And you put in your backpack. And you get on bus and you blow yourself up. Alright?”
“Why do I have to blow myself up? Why can’t I just…”
“Who’s the fucking mastermind here? Me or you?”

Americans, let’s face it: We’ve been a spoiled country for a long time.
Do you know what the number one health risk in America is?
Obesity. They say we’re in the middle of an obesity epidemic.
An epidemic like it is polio. Like we’ll be telling our grand kids about it one day.
The Great Obesity Epidemic of 2004.
“How’d you get through it grandpa?”
“Oh, it was horrible Johnny, there was cheesecake and pork chops everywhere.”

Nobody knows why we're getting fatter? Look at our lifestyle.
I’ll sit at a drive thru.
I’ll sit there behind fifteen other cars instead of getting up to make the eight foot walk to the totally empty counter.
Everything is mega meal, super sized. Want biggie fries, super sized, want to go large.
You want to have thirty burgers for a nickel you fat mother fucker. There’s room in the back. Take it!
Want a 55 gallon drum of Coke with that? It’s only three more cents.

CHORUS: baby sing, sing, sing, sing, sing your song,
sing for me,com'mon now sing, baby sing sing sing, sing your song,
sing to me, sing a song

Sometimes you have to suffer a little bit in your youth to motivate yourself to succeed in later life.
Do you think if Bill Gates got laid in high school, do you think there’d be a Microsoft?
Of course not.
You got to spend a long time in your own locker with your underwear shoved up your ass before you start to think,
“You’ll see. I’m going to take over the world with computers! I’ll show them.”

We’re in one of the richest countries in the world,
but the minimum wage is lower than it was thirty five years ago.
There are homeless people everywhere.
This homeless guy asked me for money the other day.
I was about to give it to him and then I thought he was going to use it on drugs or alcohol.
And then I thought, that’s what I’m going to use it on.
Why am I judging this poor bastard.
People love to judge homeless guys. Like if you give them money they’re just going to waste it.
Well, he lives in a box, what do you want him to do? Save it up and buy a wall unit?
Take a little run to the store for a throw rug and a CD rack? He’s homeless.
I walked behind this guy the other day.
A homeless guy asked him for money.
He looks right at the homeless guy and says why don’t you go get a job you bum.
People always say that to homeless guys like it is so easy.
This homeless guy was wearing his underwear outside his pants.
Outside his pants. I’m guessing his resume isn’t all up to date.
I’m predicting some problems during the interview process.
I’m pretty sure even McDonalds has an “underwear goes inside the pants” policy.
Not that they enforce it very strictly, but technically I’m sure it's on the books.

CHORUS: baby sing, sing, sing, sing, sing your song,
sing for me,com'mon now sing, baby sing sing sing, sing your song,
sing to me, sing a song

Pulp's CD Common People. I just got the Pulp discog. off of DC++ the other day, and they're really fantastic. I finally see what everyone was raving about. Especially the track F.E.E.L.I.N.G.C.A.L.L.E.D.L.O.V.E. Good stuff.
