- well - right away @ that Link (for JeanS.) - they give the stereotype interpretation of Capricorn I do not like. I prefer to say they are GoalOriented & like to see things actually done - but what they want to see done may not necessarily be so Conservative - & may even be a bit Baroque (Tolkien, Syd Barrett, Bowie, Joan Baez?)
- likewise - automatically interpreting something as 'bad' is neither accurate nor constructive...

Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:17pm G:

Went to a baseball game out of town Friday. The playing part is fine, but any time there is a longueur (of which there are many maybe 200 over about as many minutes) they turn on music so loud you and the person a foot from you in the next seat have to yell to talk.

Are people so inured to their blaring living room TVs that that sound level makes sense to them? Or is it to keep people from being bored by (gods forfend) momentary silence?
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:17pm Droll:

RTD, We already determined, statistically speaking, all the listeners are boomers, based on name.
As far as noise goes, I *ALWAYS* wear ear plugs at live shows. When I see the sound man also wearing them, I complain. I have loudness meter app on my phone, above 95dB is inexcusable. It is not an "age" thing.

- yes - Capricorn correlates to the time after Winter Solstice; climbing out of the darkest time back to the light - & the last Earth element sign - the final practical push of the Cycle (the 'mountaintop')...

- 100 decibels is a round number for a reason; earplugs not @ all unreasonable - esp. if exposure will be long & most esp. if regular & repeated
- I like loud music & stuff - but obviously not conducive to convo. ...maybe why I like typing like this!...

Bear in mind (Droll knows) dB is logarithmic. 90db is 100 times as loud as 70 dB.
  Sun. 6/2/13 10:23pm Dave P. 90:

@Droll: Is that an Android App? I'd love that. Never a fan of screeching subway brakes either, I think they can peak at over 95db, and with ear-stabbing high frequencies. My grandfather owned a Jazz club, and by his mid-60's he was going deaf. We would visit him for Sunday dinner and I would have to shout in his ear as if we were in a loud bar.
Avatar    Sun. 6/2/13 10:23pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

For me "relative youngster" means 45 this august. But the losing-the-voice thing doesn't even require club-volume music: just talking loud for a while does it. And earplugs, absolutely. Shows are still crucial to this bitchy old fart.

I have tinitus from years of playing in loud rock music bands. I'm keeping what I have left!

There are dozens of free apps the measure sound pressure. Complaining is far more effective when you stand there with a measurement of sustained volume louder than a jet airplane.

There's a bizarre and unintentional connection between powerful modern speakers and the powerful tiny magnets used in disk drives. That trend has roughly peaked, no pun intended.
  Sun. 6/2/13 10:32pm Dave P. 90:

I remember my most ridiculously loud concert: Oasis at Roseland Ballroom 1996. Really, really, unforgivably loud. Like sheer volume was a substitute for talent or somethin'.

I *like* loud music. I'm a Who fan!
- When the StonerMetal guys talk about feeling it - I know what they mean.
...In the new books on music & brain research, they feel that the Volume Thing needs more looking into...
- But I don't enjoy how I feel after too many hours of it in a tiny space!
- In the HipHop & Rave eras, massive subwoofers & power ratchited way up.
- To be the old Rocker in love w/ Marshall stacks calling the cops on the HipHopper's subwoofers in their cars (nothing short of seismic!) so I can sleep & be what Keith Moon called a 'jobsworth' (working stiff)...

The secret to loud is soft.

What is the sound of one eardrum bursting?
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:51pm Droll:

Black Sabbath sounds heavy, even today, not because of bigger amps or louder mastering -- Black Sabbath knew how to pull the floor out from under you and use dynamics to create tension.
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:52pm G:

Musicianship, instead of turning up a dial? Amazing concept :)
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:53pm G:

Gotta say, though, Yes in the 70s were painfully loud. The records were easier to appreciate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 10:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yes - but I also thrill to Sabbath CDs now because my cheap record player couldn't bring the full heavy range of response to me!
- Remember that stuff?; Some vinyl LPs literally *did not work* - the tone arm would jump right out of the groove...
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:56pm Tome:

seeing Yes live for me too , rather be home just listen to the record, although would have loved to had seen Gabriel with Genesis,,,in those days,,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 10:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- some LPs - I just knew by lookin' @ 'em - & prob. by what kinda music it was: 'I won't be able to play that!'...a Mastering or Engineering issue - also if sides of vinyl were too long...
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:57pm Tome:

nice that Dave you're here in the same slot too for the summer !
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 10:58pm G:

I think we are staying under the 2% threshold this show :)

DAVID Fordor!
- yeah - seriously - my 1st year as an FMUhead - sigh of relief @ new skedj - w/ a coupla exceptions...

@Tome: Thanks! Glad to be staying in this slot.
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:02pm Dave Mandl:

@G: Yeah, till now, probably.
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:03pm Droll:

HA! It's working! I stop paying that stupid David Tax and the < 2% rule goes to < 0.2%.

This Nick Mason cannot be the Pink Floyd guy.

predictably unpredictable :)

Yes it can.

@Droll: It's him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 11:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- my only problem w/ Floyd @ all is DarkSide & Wall are overplayed - not even w/ *those* in themselves...
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:07pm Droll:

DM, Sorry, things are all garbled on my end -- you said "It's him!". The Pink Floyd guy does those plodding mid-tempo beats for a decade at a time. Different guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 11:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I'll happily overplay 'Piper @ Gates' until everyone is insane...

Lonnie Holley is Kewl as Shite.

Droll - it did sound kinda N'Orleans for a Floyd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 6/2/13 11:14pm pacific standard simon:

If it makes you feel any better, Droll, Ficticious Sports is probably more of a Carla Bley scam than a Nick Mason solo album.
     Sun. 6/2/13 11:22pm 12539:

Dave M, now's as good a time as any to say I'm enjoying tonight's show.
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:25pm Dave Mandl:

@12539: Thanks. It's odd just playing straight music without any set breaks. I've never done it before, but I'll try anything once.
     Sun. 6/2/13 11:27pm 12539:

Years ago, Irwin did a show with no mike breaks. I'm not even sure if he did the station ID. By the end, I was wondering if he was really there, although the selections sounded like his.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 11:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's a Fluxus Statement...or no stating things...I duno...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 6/2/13 11:34pm pacific standard simon:

I feel more comfortable with a mike break every 20 minutes or so -- longer sets if the songs are longer, I suppose.
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:38pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: I do too, actually. This is kind of throwing me. It feels too random. With sets of five six or six songs I feel like I can make them cohere better. But I had to try, you know?
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:39pm Dave Mandl:

Too late to turn back!
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:43pm G:

Ans the music continues flooding headlong down what remains of the timeslot :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 11:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- no mikes, too many Daves...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 6/2/13 11:48pm pacific standard simon:

I like to feel connected to the DJ, although Michael Shelley probably takes it too far in that direction for my taste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 6/2/13 11:49pm davex:

Good music - I'm sure nobody panicked out there in terrestriality. Thanks, Dave M! Good night Daves and non-Daves.
Avatar Sun. 6/2/13 11:50pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Yeah, I agree. DJ'ing on the radio is very different from live, for example. DJ'ing live is not really fun for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 6/2/13 11:53pm pacific standard simon:

One of these days, maybe I'll try remixing the audio from Pete Kelly's Blues into a jazz show DJ'd by Jack Webb...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 6/2/13 11:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I really look forward to 'being here' Sunday P.M.s...
