  1. Not sure if suicide or what, but he died hours after finishing a performance in Detroit, MI with Soundgarden.
  2. One of the things I like the most is the music, specially Rock and Metal. One of the subgenres that has always caught my attention is Doom Metal, its imagery and style. That's why I decided to come up with a concept for a Doom Metal band. The name chosen is "Luscofusco" which in Galician means "Twilight" and the "Hour of the Witch". Therefore, the band would be based in Galicia. Here's a description I've created: Luscofusco is a three man Doom Metal band from Ourense, Galicia. The band is known for their lyrics inspired by the Galician mythology, the "Meigas" (local witches) and the secrets of the forest. The band takes inspiration from original Doom bands, such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Candlemass, as well as modern bands, like Sunn O))). The band logo was created by editing the font Pentgram by Alex Lang, which is inspired by bands like Pentagram and Kvelertak: I also created a concept for an album cover, using the typical dark imagery from Doom and Black Metal: The title chosen is "Unha Morte Baixo O Luar" (A Death Under The Moonlight). What do you think? C&C appreciated!
  3. Unlike the other semi-related threads, this one isn't about the quality of the album itself. Heck, it's not about the quality of the artwork either so much as your enjoyment of said artwork. Here are some of my faves, with more to come in time. A lot of my favorite album artwork comes from Beach Boys albums, which isn't surprising given that they're one of my all-time favorite bands. For this post I'll only do Beach Boys albums, with other bands' albums to come in the future: "Carl and the Passions - 'So Tough'" (1972) "Friends" (1968) Artwork on this one is a lot more psychedelic than the music. "Sunflower" (1970) This one may be an unpopular pick art-wise but I love it - the guys with their kids. There are lots more great photos on the inside too. Incidentally, this is probably my second-favorite Beach Boys album behind "Pet Sounds." "Keepin' the Summer Alive" (1980) Bad album, good artwork. I should add this to that thread too. "The Beach Boys" (1985) Very, very '80s, in a not-bad way. The artwork on this is much like the harmonies on this: realistic, but still weirdly synthetic (in this case it was a painting; in the latter, who knows, but the backing vocals sound weird throughout this whole album). "That's Why God Made the Radio" (2012) I've liked this artwork since the album first came out...though not as much as the artwork on the compilation released the same year: "50 Big Ones" (comp., 2012): Yes, a bit gimmicky, but full of color, plus it has the band's iconic logo, which is always a nice thing to have. "Sounds of Summer" (comp., 2003): Classic artwork for a classic compilation. I'll probably add a couple more BBs albums to this thread but there will be a bunch from other artists in the near future. For now, I'm going to bed. I'd love to see some of your picks tomorrow!
  4. Since we hi-jacked, or music-jacked the great Nick thread by the admiral, I thought it might be cool to just spin that thread off into one of its own. Here we can discuss the awesomeness that was music back then. Find your favorite YouTube Videos share your memories of where you were when you first heard a song or whatever you want. There seriously is a lot of fodder for a topic like this, So I will open the gates to Lollapalooza and Woodstock 94, let's forget '99 ever happened. Dig Matt Pinfield out of the mothballs and tune into 120 Minutes and bust out the flannel and torn jean shorts, before the term jorts was even a thing, lace up some docs, and throw some tunes on the discman. Let's go back to the 90's.
  5. Hello, everyone! Now I know most of you guys like music, so here's an idea. While on Reddit I found a site called plug.dj, a site where you can listen to music online with other people at the same time, and while I don't feel I fit in with any of the communities, I think if used right it's pretty cool. So I made a room where we as the CCSLC can all listen to music at the same time here Any thoughts?
  6. I'm sure most of you have thought of this before, but what would be the song you hear before an at bat, that really gets you pumped up? Mine would be Vlad the Impaler- Kasabian Which is similar to Evan Longoria's if you know what I'm talking about.
  7. I had meant to post this earlier in the year, but kept on forgetting. Anyways, here's some things (songs, movies, events, etc) that turn a decade old this year. Songs Grind With Me - Pretty Ricky My Humps - Black Eyed Peas Feel Good Inc - Gorillaz Gold Digger - Kanye West Pon de Replay - Rihanna Beverly Hills - Weezer Don't Cha - Pussycat Dolls Best of You - Foo Fighters Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand Movies Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Mr and Mrs Smith Brokeback Mountain 40 Year-old Virgin Batman Begins Events Hurricane Katrina XBox 360 released Johnny Carson passes away at age 79 Tom Cruise Jumps on Oprah's Couch Lance Armstrong wins 7th Tour de France NHL Lockout ends
  8. So my laptop crashed while I was on Christmas vacation in North Carolina. I was planning on fleshing out some design ideas while I was there, but because of that I found myself with not much to do. Now I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this here but a big hobby of mine is playing guitar and writing songs. I didn't bring my guitar with me on the trip, but I found a music shop and bought a ukulele as a Christmas present for myself so I had something to do while I was down here. I must say I absolutely love the sound of it on some of my songs and figured I would share some of my songs with you guys and see what you all think. Here's the link to my soundcloud: https://m.soundcloud.com/tim-picker Have a listen and let me know what you think! Thanks!
  9. So I saw this on deviant art: Vinyl Record Icons and started searching the web for tutorials, and found a couple, but neither explained very well what to do. So I decided to create my own. It's taken about a week and a half, maybe two to get it to where I felt like I can share. As for the process - I started writing down the steps I used, but ended up changing things and getting fairly detailed. However the basics of this are pretty simple: Create a circle, new layer fill with noise, radial blur, adjust noise layer's mode, reduce opacity. The following get a little more in-depth, with adding lighting, shadow, outline, center label, etc. Maybe once I clean up my original file, I'll create a psd and release it, and if I can remember all the steps I might be able to add a tutorial. Anyway, enough delay. Here is the finished result: 1st: (500x500px) With paper-style label, and text. 2nd: (1200x1200px) Original File Size. Paper-style label with border, but no text. C&C appreciated, but not sure how much more I'll mess with these.
  10. I don't think we've had a thread on this topic before - if we have, someone kindly direct me to the new topic and delete this one. Anyway, at work today, "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson came on. I was immediately taken back to second semester of senior year, first period, gym class, playing basketball. I'll forever associate that song with that particular memory. Odd? Slightly - during my senior year, I took "Individual and Team Sports" taught by the football coaches (which basically meant "go play basketball and don't anything or anyone up"). There were about 3 mix CDs that were allowed to play over the sound system in the gym, and amongst all the 2004-05 era rap music, "Since U Been Gone" was on there. It was completely out of place, and we'd all laugh when it came on. I'm probably the only person in the world who immediately associates a Kelly Clarkson song with playing basketball in gym class. What are some other songs that immediately trigger memories for you - good, bad, or completely off-the-wall like mine?
  11. It's funny seeing sports teams in music video's either signing or dancing. So I thought I would start a thread. Only post music video's that have a sports team in it, they can either be singing or just in the video. So here's FSU's 1988 classic "The Seminole Rap"
  12. This is a thread I've thought about for quite some time, as one part of music I especially like is covers. It's interesting how bands take classic songs and put their own twist on them. One I've come across--and this might be an unpopular opinion--is The Killers' cover of The Eagles' Hotel California: And another I've liked is Metallica's take on Bob Seger's Turn the Page: Anyways, back to thre thread--what are your favorite song covers or remixes (as I consider remixes to be similar to covers)?
  13. This year I'll be taking a road trip with some friends from Niagara all the way to Manchester, Tennessee for the Bonnaroo Music Festival. It's my first time and I was wondering if anyone else will be going/has been before. What should I expect? What's most important to bring? What activities should we check out that might not seem obvious? Any tips would be helpful.
