whats in your headphones?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

I watched it and listened.
One thing you have to learn about older men; We can't understand screech or a women's voice at that pitch.
Our hearing seems to be immune to that at a certain age.
It came off like that Kacey Musgraves song, "Rainbow." Didn't know what she was saying but I pulled it up on Youtube with lyrics and I didn't like that either.

But I still understand everything Amy Grant says in a song.

Noise is just noise. A song should be about something and yes, we all march to a different musical experience.

Purely instrumental (Or, more accurately, lyricless) music can do a phenomenal job of conveying emotion. Can even be about something very specific, too.

Some of the vocal elements are strongly reminiscent of Merrill's work in Tune-Yards, though the overall tone of the two groups couldn't be more different.

And when I'll be done with that, I'll take a couple hours to play the games I played in my young and wild years, preferably with this soundtrack :
...That was about the last bit of music I ever expected to find in this thread :lol:. Ahh, fond memories of playing over MPlayer back when I was ~13, :D

And, to contribute to the underlying thread:
