Is "rock horse" code for something unsavoury?

Elton John also sang that song "Tiny Dancer". Did you know that a "tiny dancer" is British slang for penis?!

Quality is another issue. I've deleted/fixed tons of torrents that we're "remastered" ignorantly, tracks were not separated correctly, song titles/dates/locations were erroneous etc. Don't be fooled into believing "it's lossless" means anything. Very true, but there are an incre...

Tower's popularity extends beyond its customer base, said Geoff Mayfield, an analyst with Billboard. "The industry wants it to survive," he said. It got a standing ovation from the crowd when it recently won retailer of the year from the major recording merchandisers' trade group, he said...

No.

FLAC and BitTorrent are the best values in recorded entertainment.

Now let's see if I'm following these audiophiliac convolutions correctly. You're saying: 1. The music absolutely sucks but 2. Let's ponder the relative sonic merits of two different mixes of the same unlistenable sucky music in order to decide which mix is "preferable"(!) My question is: W...

I haven't heard the new Hiwatts either. The latest guitar amps are so advanced, it's hard for me to keep up with all the innovations. I think the circuit modeling emulators and on-board computers are a great idea in theory, but most guitar players think they're cheesy. Guitar players aren't always ...

Who cares (not me), but I noticed that Townshend is now a paid endorser of the "new" Hiwatt amps. Guess they're not paying him enough to have him actually drag them onstage, though. Yeah, Hiwatt is the trademark early 70s British rock guitar sound. The entire 70s Pink Floyd output is exclu...

Robert Plant didn't really get good until he got the poofy hair and did "Tall Cool One".

Sounds like you have one of those discs that have the false data track after the CD content, designed solely to confuse ROM drives. ROM drives will always read the data area first, but if there's really nothing there, the disc will just spin around until the drive gives up and spits it out. I have o...
