If for some reason you are looking at this, this is where we have gone to. [Thursday
Sep 22, 2005 @ 1:45pm]


sound_rationale is a music rating community. Certainly, we will tell you what we think, but we will also offer insight on other artists you might enjoy. We have approximately 80 accepted members, and even more rejections. It is very competitive. If you think you are up to the challenge, or have something to offer that one of our members does not, by all means, check us out.

We offer mp3 trading in something we call "The Game." The Game is when three people post a song (there are different rounds) and people vote whether it is awesome. If it is awesome (there is a difference between bad, good, great, and awesome) it will be put on to a mix we are composing, and whoever wants one at that time, gets one. Many people also just post mp3's. And that is just one of the perks.

We are very sad to report that Angel, our beloved friend, bass player,
and co-writer of all autodrone music had a very unfortunate cooking
accident while de-pitting an avacado, in the process, she sustained
two very deep cuts on the first two fingers of her left hand, which severed all of her flexor tendons and caused a great deal of nerve damage, because of this, she can temporarily no longer play bass.

She is expected to make a 100% recovery in the coming months, but
the emotional trauma of this horrible event combined with the financial
drain of her mounting medical bills which include a grueling 11 hour
reconstructive surgery have left us penniless. If you feel like helping
out, we have set up a paypal donation button here on this site.

Thanks so much! for continuing to support us, we will be playing shows again soon, and new music should be coming out soon too.

we love you!

THE GAME IS MOVING TO sound_rationale

that said, the following songs have been rejected:

sol invictus - in days to come [3 yes, 8 no]

& these two have been approved:

crotchduster - mammal sauce [19 yes, 1 no, 95% approval]
sam cooke - a change is gonna come [13 yes, 0 no, 100% approval]

an amazing number of people voted on crotchduster. i think, when we get our 80 minutes done the first time, crotchduster should start the mix.

the following people need to post their submissions to sound_rationale:


& brainmartini already has submitted to SR. go play here.

[ mood | excited ]

I can finally tell you all. The cat is out of the bag, as they say. (Not that some of you didn't already know, if you've been in the LOS chat recently.)

We decided that in all this drama, we would rather not deal with all that comes with LOS baggage. You know, having to be eternally indebted to someone, and having to fight about stupid dramatic stuff, and worry about more of our community stuff being deleted, and maybe our community in the future.

What am I trying to say? Sorry to all of you who made graphic in our emergency theme, we acted in haste, but we have moved! The same mods are taking over a community called sound_rationale and the rules have changed there slightly. Not everything is up there completely, but we are quickly turning up everything and it is pretty similar (alot of what is here NOW will be continued there, such as the Game, of course), but much more relaxed. You are all welcome, and I hope you will come.

The deal is that if you are currently a member here you can be auto-accepted into the community, unless of course you would like to reapply and then please note that to us. In addition, if you are not currently part of the community, or have been kicked out, you can just apply there. Please do not submit another application to LOS. We are just going to end up another dead community and ask you to apply there, anyhow.

So... Join sound_rationale!

A huge resource for Santeria/afro-cuban folkloric music.


I don't think I am going to be able to contain myself.



The most hugely comprehensive site on Cuban music.

Good God, I'm a little overwhelmed here.

I really like the new layout. Much easier on the eyes, and very pretty too.

What do you guys think about Penguin Cafe Orchestra? I pulled out some of their CDs today, and I must say that I forgot how awesome they are.

Where do I start with Ranchero music? I realized, while listening to some of my mom's ranchero music that she has on vinyl (she lived in mexico for a while), that it bears an uncanny resemblance to happy hardcore... in a really weird way. I want more of it though... and I want stuff that isn't as fucking happy.
She couldn't remember the names of any of the artists.
So I really don't know where to start.
Help? Please?

So, here's some thoughts I was having.

Last night I watched (okay, I was forced to watch) Some Kind Of Monster, that docu-drama on Metallica. Is there anything redeemable about them? Were they ever good musicians? It seems like they are a bunch of sniveling pussies now. All into sharing feelings and getting in touch with one another. Dude, this is fucking METALLICA? Hello?!

Man, I remember when Metallica came out with "Justice for All". I was in the 6th grade. That shit was hard back in the day of NKOTB and bad dance music. Where did it go? When did they start to suck? Did they always suck? Do I place them on some sort of pedastal because of nostalgia?

That all being said, some of the tracks that they played from St. Anger seemed pretty decent. Good enough for me to (someday) look up the album on SLSK and download it illegally (FUCK YOU LARDS!) And I still contend that Master of Puppets is a damned fine song.

Thoughts? Opinions? Discussion?
