I don't listen to the Black Keys but if they are already playing I won't go out of my way to change the song. I personally find their songs sound too much a like.

Same kind of goes to for the White Stripes & I can understand not liking Jack White's voice. Personally I love what Jack White has done by himself or with The Dead Weather & The Raconteurs. His love of the blues isn't seen in others today's music scene. His guitar skills are nothing to scoff at either, he was featured in "It Might Get Loud" a film in which he, Jimmy Page, & The Edge come together to discuss the electric guitar and each artist's different playing methods. Its a very cool film & I suggest guitar players to look it up & anyone who has a big love of music.

If anything, I thought this is the most glaring negative the Black Keys have. That problem tends to happen when you have such a distinct sound.

Oh I think its a negative as well. Its also probably why I love the Beatles so much because they tried very hard not to get boggled down into having a distinct sound.

Diversification is what makes bands so great. Probably why Rush, the Hip, Pink Floyd, etc. are at the top of my list.

Count me as one who really doesn't enjoy the White Stripes or the Black Keys. Maybe in the sea of garbage that is modern music they stand out as not-so-horrid, but in the grand scheme of things I find them fairly lame.

It's been a while since I listened to The Beatles...off to YouTube I go.

I like both the Black Keys and the White Stripes to a degree. Their hit songs are great but after that they're just kinda meh. Neither group has made a fully loaded album with good songs.

Yeah, there's not really a band that's come out in the last few years that has blown me away and made me stand up and take notice. Not in the way some of the classics did the first time I heard them, like The Beatles, Van Halen, Rush, etc...there's some OK music, but not stuff I actively seek out.

The Hip still make good music.

Hard to beat a classic though:

I love Youtube! All my friends watch random ass videos on youtube, I use it for concert videos, band promos, variety shows from the 60's, different takes of songs...etc I love that you can listen to Full albums & watch full concerts on there now too. If you want to see some random Beatles videos le me know



Also


Been searching for the name of this song for a while & found it while watching that documentary "it may get loud".

Well, he just happened to be kicking my neighbour's door; I didn't even know he was a wanted convict until the cop told me.

Sorry, sometimes it's easy to assume context where none has been given.

It's okay; I should have elabourated more.

He was standing in front of my neighbour's house for two hours. Claimed that the house was his, and was looking for a girl. Since it wasn't our house, we couldn't call the cops on him until he started kicking the door.

I'm not a usual Joytv viewer, but the piece on Jonestown is pretty good. I've been fascinated by Jonestown and Jim Jones since I was a teenager, as eerie as the story is.

I really believe it's a step in the right direction. In BC IIRC, pot is the second most lucrative crop besides corn. Lots of money to be made by the government and pot-consumers become more protected as well. It's a win-win.

I think this vote is a small step in going the right way for all of society in Canada. It's going to be a slow process, but I hope before I die before at least pot is fully legalized. Canada is a very progessive country and I expect them to look at the facts more than I do their emotions.
Problem has never been Canada, it is the USA.

The thing about legalising pot is that it doesn't change anything. Gangs will continue to make lucrative money from it, as they can sell it to the U.S., where it is still illegal.

Yeah, the U.S. will just pressure Canada out of legalizing it until they do it. And I can't see them doing it anytime soon, what with all the heavy-duty pharmaceutical/liquor lobbying.

And if anything, legalising pot with allow the gangs to make even more money. They don't have to hide their grow-ups!

Yes, but Harper's government is a conservative one. As such, they are very anti-pot. Ever since they got majority, pot has been more closely enforced, at least in my observations.

USA is actually looking like it's moving forward a bit on this issue, and Canada further back. It may not be solely because of this reason, but I am fairly disenchanted with Harper and his government. Sadly, there isn't anybody out there right now that's much better. Mulcair being the closest to my vote, I'd say.
