I've come to terms with the fact that I'll ever only watch 25% of the content I add to all my streaming queues. Jan 18, 2019 at 10:28 AM

      Finally listened to whole Police/Synchronicity album...track #5 gave me a Primus flashback. Enjoying exploring the classics!

        You gotta watch those Stewart Copeland written tunes. I think that is why he got along so well with Claypool in the Oysterhead project.

      My 2 desert island 90's metal albums: Megadeth/Rust in Peace & Overkill/Horrorscope...purely influenced by formative high school years.

        I’m going to show my bias here, my favorite 90s metal album is Painkiller by Judas Priest.

        I would skip one album for Kyuss' "Blues For The Red Sun" and then add Tool's "Aenima." You take a 50 million trip and learn to swim, life skills \m/

        I turn to those I listed plus Metallica and Pantera for old school thrash cravings. In terms of technical mastery that I actually love listening to there will always be Rush, Tool, Porcupine Tree, etc.

        The fictional backstory- a cat was buried in an apple field, was reincarnated as an apple/cat, and needs to go to Hollywood and become a rock star return to cat form.

        Makes perfect sense.

      Not generally a fan of horror genre, but Haunting of Hill House was really good. Hype is justified IMHO.

        Been getting mixed signals about it, but I'm not a fan of jumpscare fests. Is it that, or more subtle @rott?

        @Lyer25 it has its share of jumpscare moments (which isn't something I enjoy either), but they're more or less integral to the storyline, which deals with familial issues apart from the supernatural stuff.

        As a relatively heavy disc renter, it has become progressively harder to receive popular titles without multiple week delays. Netflix rental allocation algorithm favors those who keep discs out longer.

        https://dvd.netflix.com - not sure how much longer that'll be around. I still prefer Blu-ray for the uncompressed sound and best PQ, but streaming is usually good enough. Favorite flicks (not shows) I end up buying on disc anyway.

        I loved the Lyr 3 for what it did. Its a great allrounder and a versatile amp that works well with both DDs and Planars. While it does help headphones scale well based on the upstream gear, IMO, it doesn't help unravel the hidden potential of the High-Z DD HPs.

        Big Boy amp upgrade will need to wait till next year. This tapped out my audio budget, might need to let go of LCD2C.

      I too can't figure out what all the Blank Panther hype was about. A bit better than average compared to rest of MCU. I prefer the Cap movies

        I think the Nolan trilogy set the bar for the genre, Dark Knight was a masterpiece. I do have a nostalgic soft spot for the M.Keaton Batman. V for Vendetta was good also, am a Hugo Weaving fan. Unabashed fan of The Matrix trilogy, though hard to top the first.

        And I used to love the Nolan Batman movies but I don’t think they’ve aged well. Especially Dark Knight Rises, but even the ending of Dark Knight is extremely problematic.
