Working (so I'm listening to audio for that), but earlier it was Within Temptation - Sinead. (And I was trying to sing it, too, loudly and badly.)

Jon LaJoie- The Best Song
Nothing objectionable here, but I'd approach the rest of his stuff cautiously if you don't care for crude humor or salty language.
Edit: Okay, there's a brief allusion to prostitution and some minor profanity in the text at the end. It's the least objectionable song I've heard from him though.

My husband's best friend is such a total hipster and I make fun of him for it, all the time, but I end up liking most of the music he recommends for us. Darn him.

Shamelessly listening to myself (literally) over and over and over as I listen to a new song I wrote for my band in an attempt to get some lyric ideas while I (silently) yell at the computer screen as I read a feed of the Leeds United v. Bradford City match (where my beloved LUFC can't seem to actually shoot on target) and file the looseleaf pages of the new edition of COMAR.

Busy afternoon.

You all listen to music a lot.

I guess it is in the "background" for the most part?

I do tend to zone out a lot when listening, yes... usually because I'm concentrating on something else like making posts on oc.net  ;D Most of the time it's more about matching a mood that I'm in, rather than listening to the actual music. The only time I really listen for extended periods these days is when I'm very depressed and feel too blah to actually do anything, or when I'm on the bus and listening to my mp3 player.  Having said that, when I post in this thread it is generally in the moments when I (usually suddenly) realise what song is playing, and am enjoying it (though sometimes I just post what song is playing, regardless of whether I particularly like it... after all, it'd be quite hipsterish to post only the songs that I thought were cool  8) ).

I can't listen to music and do much any thing requires much more than use of my brain stem.

I frequently use ear plugs just block out the music around me and others' conversations.

Look, I'm not denying it. I was just a hipster before everyone else decided to be hipster.

And like Asteriktos, I love to listen to music a lot and I just post occasionally if something that I'm listening to "catches my ear" or whatever. I was known on my college campus as the iPod girl, but everyone used to wear them and walk around town where I came from. Music was 24/7. I only listen to it if I'm writing, doing chores, or exercising now.

This morning I was listening to the album as I was drafting some articles. I can't listen to music if I'm transcribing or translating (unless it's instrumental) because the bi-lingual word soup in my head makes me want to tear my hair out.

I listened to music and half-napped a good bit on Sunday afternoon.  Of course I listened to the obligatory Pumped Up Kicks and Kids - MGMT as these have been my favorite songs for a few months now.  And then went on to some classics.

Iggy Pop - Tonight and The Passenger.  (Did not listen to Search and Destroy, though this is one of my favorites.)
Gary Numan - Stories and I Die You Die
David Bowie - Look Back In Anger and Be My Wife

Four guns shots in quick succession by a medium caliber handgun. Answered by shots about 15 seconds later by a much small caliber handgun.

I ain't that schooled in handguns to make those decisions.

Never got the full education on firearms from my grandfather. By the time I was old enough to start using a handgun in his opinion (besides a .22 for target practice), we were separated.

Ain't no way I am telling by sound, the caliber of a gun, although last weekend someone must have had a 9mm or .45. About 8 quick shots, followed about by a couple shots from a much, much smaller caliber gun, then 6 more from the same larger caliber weapon. And someone was shot and maybe died (didn't follow) that night. I was close enough to get a really good listen.

But I wouldn't be surprised if it were some throw away burner with a history like some crap .25 ACP.

How hot are the hollow point, 50-grain rounds? Not that you are going to do much target work with such a firearm and round, but could you realistically get much practice in?

They're pretty lousy, but they're obviously enough to kill and injure lots of people in the hoods every year.  I really distrust those things.  There are some good, small frame/caliber pistols now, but I'm not sure how thoroughly they've hit "the streets" yet.  One of the burners is liable to blow up on you, but far more likely to jam.

Regarding hollow points, I usually use FMJ rds for anything below a 9mm auto.  My understanding is that given the relatively weak ballistic penetration of .380s, 32's and below, you're better served with ball ammo, especially during winter months (heavier clothing).  That might be over thinking it a might though.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96jFtzVa80A&feature=related

Now, I know that my music posts seem to garner replies informing me about how much my taste stinks, but I will not, will not allow any mocking of Ace of Base. Thank you.

Most people I know that carry .380's use hydrashocks or similar expanding bullets.  Still enough umpf from a 9mm Kurtz to deserve it.  I carry FMJ in my Tokarevs - the 7.62 because the HPs are just FMJs with a hole drilled in the tip, and the 9mm because it won't feed JHPs.  Other than that, the only gun I trust firing ball rounds out of is the Peacemaker.  The only other sub-9mm handgun I have is the Nagant revolver and it only really has FMJ by Sellier & Belot.  But if I ever have to rely on the Nagant I'm going to throw it at him and hope I get him in the eye.

Since this is the "what are you listening to" thread: back when I used to shoot IPSC (or whatever the acronym is) some guy started carrying a 10mm just because he got tired of my Tokarev/CZ-52 being the loudest handgun in the room.  But he never matched my 3' wall of flame!

I never got the sign, but I was a bit of a lovefool. That song came out as a single the fall of my senior year of high school. That was back when MTV actually played music... I probably fell asleep to the song 17.4% of those nights. By that time Stupid Girl by Garbage had faded, as had Popular by Nada Surf. See, I have stinky musical taste as well? No mocking, no self-pity, just the truth ;D

Thanks to the It's So Gay thread, I now have a number of show tunes bumping around in my noggin.

At the moment, I have "The Barber and His Wife" (Sweeney Todd, Len Cariou singing) vs. "The Point of No Return" (Phantom, Michael Crawford) bouncing around in my head.

Odd, considering I much prefer pre-Sondheim musicals (although I love his work).  I'm a mark for Rogers and Hammerstein's ANYTHING.

Thanks to the It's So Gay thread, I now have a number of show tunes bumping around in my noggin.

At the moment, I have "The Barber and His Wife" (Sweeney Todd, Len Cariou singing) vs. "The Point of No Return" (Phantom, Michael Crawford) bouncing around in my head.

Odd, considering I much prefer pre-Sondheim musicals (although I love his work).  I'm a mark for Rogers and Hammerstein's ANYTHING.

Top for me is Cole Porter, although there are NO decent recordings. Ella Fitzgerald ruined his "song book". Brilliant ironist. Back when "musicals" were just fun. Incredible song writer. I can only wonder how his works should be performed.

If any have any recording suggestions, I am open.

Yeah, I am much more of a modernist with musicals, although I do like a lot of the classic songs, singing wise. I haven't listened to musicals in 4 or 5 years, so I am just getting my memory back. I am surprised at how much I've forgotten!

In the past few days I listened to: Chess, Someone Else's Story; of course Les Mis; and Into the Woods, my first Broadway musical.  :)

No you're a contemporist.

In case you didn't know, that was a 30 Rock reference. :)

The 2002 revival?  Lucky.  Yet another feather in my gay cap is my unabashed love for Dame Judi Dench, even if it was just a recorded voice.

How could I forget Kurt Weil!

Die Dreigroschenoper is really perfect, especially with the original cast. Brecht alone, not so much.

Weil did some great stuff for Hollywood as well.

I feel like that with quite a number of pre-war stuff, especially 19th century classical works.  I get the feeling that I'm being cheated even when the most esteemed orchestra and conductor do, say, Paganini.  I would imagine if I heard it in a properly sized theater, I would feel better, but, alas, there's nothing like that in the US, at least.
