    There has not been a thread complaining about this site's new look for at least several days. Frankly this is not good enough, as I am sure there are many posters here who still feel their lives have been grossly impinged upon by the improved interface, clearer rendering and larger fonts.

    Resistance is futile. They will be assimilated.

    Their collective experience will be added to our own.

    He is being sarcastic. He does like the site and its improvements.
    I like it too but I remember the old one too.

    The ways of the ancients. Hallowed are the ancient ways.
    But behold the old rhp has passed away and a new one doth come.

    Now if only I could improve my rating, hmmmmmm........

    I have heard it said that there are people here using
    stockfish, fruit and houdini.

    Very difficult to prove though.................................

    never noticed, divegeester! not sure what format has to do with reading posts, but to each his own. i would, however, complain that not all non-subs are spammers, and we should have more than 6 messages a day 🙂

    OK, An electronic music duo from Sydney.
    Not bad, never heard of them but I did
    like I what I heard. I like a British electronic
    duo called Erasure. They are sadly no more
    but they were good also.


    I am from the old school, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow, AC/DC,
    Lynard Skynard, Free, Jimi Hendrix, REM, ELO, Beatles, Rolling Stones,
    Rod Stewart, Foo fighters, Meatloaf, Thin Lizzy, U2.

    But I do like electronic music like Gary Newman, Erasure, Yazoo, Kraftwerk.

    i found them via pandora under the chillwave section
    that's the genre ive been into lately. wiki classifies them
    as glam rock, but theres only one song that reminds me of david bowie

    most old school music bores me. ive listened to all of those youve mentioned. except REM, ELO, and rainbow. not a fan of meatloaf or the foo fighters, and i can't stand U2. bleh! ive heard of kraftwerk - they're good. ill check out the others you've mentioned.

    if you liked the song check out 'we are the people' and 'walking on a dream'

    My favourite song at the moment is by "Monsters and Men".

    It's called "Little Talks" and it's the best song I've heard from any
    new group this last five years.

    have you heard of phoenix? there's a link in the music thread for their song 'too young'
    here's another favorite of mine from them: YouTube

    you may have heard of them. they were featured in a couple of movies, i think.

    To be honest now, I would not be crazy about that song.
    I would not rate it at all. If it came on the radio I would
    tune out.

    It has nothing on my favourite song of 2013, Little talks. 🙂

    I have a CD here from a few years back given to me by a relation
    of mine who is the drummer with a band called Analogue Mindfield.

    The CD is called A fine adjustment of time.

    Look it up on google. You might like them.

    yea, you either love them or you hate them
    that's how it is between my friends, at least
    another band that is similar to monster would
    be the lumineers. try out "ho hey"
