Got up around 7:30 this morning, which is odd because I'm on vacation, but it's very hard to sleep in in So Cal with this heat wave. It was a little over 80 degrees when I got up. Yuck. Anyways, I was kinda bored this morning and didn't want to turn on the tv, so I decided to crank up some music. My neighbors must love me. . .

Was in the mood for something different this morning and put on Nelly Furtado's "Folklore." During the last song, "Childhood Dreams," I noticed the woofers on my MAs were going spastic. Switched my sub on and started the song over again and felt my room vibrate. Some deep organ notes on this one. I don't know how deep, but the kind you feel and not hear.

Does any else know of "popular" music that features notes that warrant the use of a sub? Most of the time I feel I'm not missing much to the music without it.

Ha Ha. For a minute there you got me looking through my cd collection for some CCR, and I'm thinking what part of that song has bass?

This heat is making me very slow.

Set myself up for that one, didn't I?

St_PatGuy:

Yep, that 80 deg in the morning stinks. We live in STx, southwest of Houston, and have been in a miserably humid state for a while. But unlike your neck of the woods, it's pretty much normal.

As for some deep bass, I don't know if this is your cup of tea but I recently played the Blood Flowers cd by the Cure and man does that thing go down. Like yours, the sub was spastic. Even if you don't like the music, I recommend borrowing it just for the workout.

Thanks, donjuanmiguel. I only have one Cure cd, their last one, but I won't mind adding a few more. Never really got into them when I was in jr high--high school. I don't know why, though.

The humidity part is the real killer. Yesterday a rainstorm hit the local mountains, but made it muggy down here. Right now it's 102 in the shade. I can't wait, August 1st I'll be moving into an apartment equiped with AC. Right now I just have fans pushing warm air around. I hate dripping with sweat when all I'm doing is sitting around reading a book. This morning I contemplated driving around in my car with the AC running, but with the price of gas these days. . .So instead I went to the supermarket and spent some extra time in the frozen food section. No joke. They had Dreyer's Grand on sale--2 for $6. Took my time deciding which flavors.

There is a song on Boz Scaggs "Dig" cd called "King Of El Paso" that has great bass.

When Ian and Tom and Steve were still designing prototypes of the new DSP subwoofers, we cued up Avril Lavigne to demo to my (young) cousins. There were two or three notes in Skaterboi none of us had ever heard before, and they went nuts.
