Are You a Swifty?
@waytoomuchstuff  Your musical references are all things that I like a lot. They are all very singular in their sound. So based upon that, here are a few things to try that you might like: Woods - Strange to Explain Vetiver - Up on High Real Est... 
Are You a Swifty?
@tylermunns I’ve slowly, very slowly, come to the conclusion you have come to about Antonoff. He HAS made Lana more bland and I keep hoping she’ll find a new producer, or go back to one like Dan Auerbach. Her writing I think remains strong... bu... 
Are You a Swifty?
@tylermunns  Ha! You're right! I should not make that distinction unless asked to. Regarding Lana Del Rey -- have you listed to her album "Norman Fucking Rockwell"? She's an exceptional songwriter. She does not write by committee like say, Beyon...

@tylermunns You’ll get no argument from me regarding the fake divide between male and female artists. When I ask myself what am I in the mood to listen to, I don’t think I’ve ever thought about it in terms of ’male’ or ’female’ artist. I think mor...

@toro3 I don’t believe in most maxims either, especially when it comes to our own  minds, but these observations that you listed are good things to consider and think about. Even as a kid there were albums that didn’t grab me right off, but there...

@tylermunns "Perhaps what you’re saying is, “there is great potential for personal growth in exposing oneself to stuff they typically assume to be crap, as one may surprise oneself and avoid a certain stagnation of musical awareness,” or, as Werne... 
Are You a Swifty?
@tylermunns  I'm able to appreciate songcraft without always being interested in what the writing is about (and I'm far from literate with Taylor's full catalog). There are many pop artists that I've sampled where I would never buy an album becau... 
Ethernet cables
@tonywinga Thank you for those explanations. I cannot argue them as I’ve not seen the studies or data that supports the conclusion. I guess where I would still hold some skepticism is in whether or not those signal anomalies caused by interfer... 
Are You a Swifty?
Not really, at least for me. I heard Evermore was good so I picked that up. Also 1987, and the other folky one -- Folklore. They all good, but it doesn’t really speak to me-- and I’m not really into the whole Easter Egg kind of fan thing that’s a ... 
Are You a Swifty?
Huge numbers  of people love her and I think that's just fine. I do not happen to be one of them. She is clearly a talented songwriter-- I have several of her records -- but what she mostly writes about -- her social life -- isn't very interesting... 
Ethernet cables
Well made and well-shielded, not-junk ethernet cables are essential for carrying any data from point A to B. They need to meet modern standards too, as Ethernet speeds are not the same today as they were years ago. However, the stupid expensive on... 
Power cable Advice...
Any heavy gauge, well-made power cable will do. Cost is not proportional to sound quality. Don't be suckered.  
Finally...subwoofer that's aesthetically pleasing!
Thank goodness for trust funds! What a colossal, shameless, er, investment? I guess it’s worth it for the bragging rights, eh? Gotta wonder about their business model a little though. A 5000% margin and a target market of at least 10 Saudi Arabian... 
Yes, cables do make a difference -- regardless of price...
Bad cables make a bigger difference than good cables, and beyond a certain level of build and materials quality, good cable make very little relative difference compared to other huge factors like the quality of the source component and the acoust... 
Robert Plant
Robert Plant is obviously one of the best singers ever to come from rock; he's become over the years a truly stellar singer. He's released quite a few absolutely excellent solo works and a couple of collaborations with Alison Krauss. He's never be...
