Holy easy on the reply trigger. :rolleyes: I removed that message before it even sat for a minute online. :lol: Cat's out of the bag now people. I accused him of listening to Britney Spears himself. :P

But it is true, all her songs, which I listen to religiously, sound like sheep and other live stock. When I'm not spinning a Spears record, I'm jamming to the Backstreet Boys and singing out loud with the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cirus. Baby! Baby! :D

Nathan so it true eh :rolleyes:

modelhut couldn't have said it better my self :D

I was once at one of her concerts and being an adult male it was easy to push my way through the 10 year old girls to the front where Britney Spears herself touched my hand before I was escorted to the parking lot and savagely beaten by security and angry parents. Totally worth it! I still haven't washed that hand to this day. I wear a yellow dish glove over it when I shower. But that's nothing compared to the time I went back stage with the Jonas Brothers.

No Music

I mostly listen to TV

I even watch it sometimes.

Explains way I don't build quickly :rolleyes:

Funny I thought I was the only one.

if I don't have the tube on I've got CKDO 107.7 fm on the play classic rock and roll from the '50's to the 80's and if that ain't on I'm listening to my favorite music which ranges from Jerry Reed to Chubby Checker

as far as music taste goes though, i listen almost exclusively to Christian metal

bands like tourniquet, saviour machine, deliverance, bride, holy soldier, stryper, theocracy and the likes :(

of course when the wifey is around thats less apreciated

All heavy christian music rocks. Best concerts ever!!! Thanks for the great comments on a great music choice. Stryper for life. Thanks man...

Surf music has become a favorite of mine over the past couple of years; Los Straitjackets and The Surfites are a couple of my most frequently listened. Jazz is one of my long-standing vices, so Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck and Thelonious Monk are often my building companions(I also had them figure prominently in the dinner music at my wedding).

Most often I just pop a movie in the DVD player and listen to it as I build; my friend with the 'in progress' G gauge model railroad does the same thing when I work with him.

Learn what? how to be indoctrinated into their ranks, (be they right or left)? :):lol: All you get in either case is one viewpoint, one side of the story, (& usually laced with easy to dispute lies), all buttressed & supported by callers that feel the same way, with no dissent allowed. I don't even listen to talk radio from those who's opinions I am more likley to agree with.

I care more for my ears & intellect than to subject either of them to that!!! :P:lol:

B)

Sure, it's true that you can listen to whatever talk that supports and reinforces your own political beliefs and then feel better about whatever it is you already believe in. Obviously if you listen only to right wing talk or only to left wing talk you're not getting the full story. The trick is to hear both sides and form your opinions after you've heard the arguments of each. That's what I meant about "learning" from talk radio (or talk TV, for that matter).

Does Coast to Coast count as talk radio? I listen to that when I'm building late at night. Love me some UFO stories and secret society conspiracies. When I'm not tuning in the Coast to Coast through my dental work, I'll put in a few Rush albums and get at 'er.

...maybe some Britney Spears. :)

Stryper was great and Petra was good. I used to love a band when I was a teenager called Barren Cross ( Or Barron ) They had a Iron Maiden sound to them. I went to a Newsboys concert once and the singer fell off the stage.

You and me both man! and If i'm up super late, they rebroadcast the show at 2am so I can catch up on what I missed, or just listen to it again.

Bluesman Mark, VW Dave, we'd get along pretty well. Between the 50s surf and the blues/jazz... yeah..

I play the Tenor sax and would jump at the chance to start a band. I followed Coltrane a lot in High School. Michael Brecker too. Can't go wrong with Miles Davis either. I saw Maynard Ferguson play at the Riviera back in about 2000. Got a chance to talk music with him for about 15 minutes. Good times.

I prefer to work in peace and quiet. There is so little of that these days. I don't care for the radio stations around here... it's all yap, yap, yap. Non-stop commercials and yack with a song thrown in here and there. And like TV, the commercials are created by coked-out idiots who aim for the twelve year old brains. I would like to try satellite radio but I cannot afford another monthly payment.

Only exception is during the season I will listen to the Red Sox game on TV.

I have a monster .mp3 library but lately it's been old school Van Halen.

Usually though it's pretty heavy stuff like Overkill, All That Remains.

Then there are days when it's Beatles, 70's Jazz Fusion [Mahavishno Orchestra, Return To Forever, Brecker Bro's].

Depends on my mood but there are ALWAYS tunes on.

Bob
