      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

Hey, everybody, this thread was taking longer to load than In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly took to play.  2.gif  (Anybody remember that one?) So I'm starting a new one.  The old one can be found here.

It's Only Rock and Roll--Rolling Stones

Pink Floyd's Echoes synchronised with the ending of 2001: A Space Odessey. Clocking in at over 23 minutes, it is one of Floyd's longest songs.

Thanks for posting the vid. Now I don't have to rent 2001 every time I want to watch that sync.

Lola Live '80 - The Kinks

This may not have been as looooooooooooong as In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida from Iron Butterfly or Pink Floyd's 23 minute opus Echoes, but for this song, you could call it the extended version of this rock classic. It ran over six or seven minutes, but it was a very loud six or seven minutes.

Stretch. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is known just for being long, not for taking a long time to load.

...and what little humor there was you destroyed by then explaining the joke. In order to be funny, it has to be "gotten" without explanation. 49.gif

....I'm not listening to anything right at the moment besides that faint white noise that comes out of headphones when they're hooked up and on but no actual sound is playing. And the steady hum of my computer's cooling fan.

the kids today....

let me start over,that sounded real old.

I think the last  time In-A-Gadda-Da-vida  got any pub was on The Simpsons and i think that was season 1 or2.

Now I've got Powerslave going. It's been too long since I last listened to this album (yes, the whole album, in order).

Tell me why I have to be a powerslave

I don't wanna die I'm a god why can't I live on

When the lifegiver dies all around is laid waste

and in my last hour I'm a slave to the power of death

slave to the poower of deeeath

slaaave to the pooower of deeeeeeaaaaaaaaattthhhhhhh!!!!!

Brings back memories.

Oh, and to the people who listen to artists like Led Zeppelin one song at a time as opposed to the whole album start to finish - I hate you.quote>

Okay, new thread, new habit. If I'm listening to a full album, I'm going to name the album in general rather than specifically naming the current song.... but inject a splash of lyrics from the approximate current point. The difference can also be told by album titles being Italicitzed.

The Protomen - Act II: The Father of Death

They say this city, she's been dead for years now

so death is not something that scares me

there's worse things than death here

they've told me... keep quiet

They Might Be Giants - John Henry

I saw the worst bands of my generation

applied by magic marker to drywall

I should be allowed to shoot my mouth off

I should have a call in show

I should be allowed to glue my poster

I should be allowed to think...

After halloween

everything starts fading

I'm losing everyone

I go down like the sun

You know what I mean

I'm just someone in a summer town...
